Some Tripadvisor comments:
“Fantastic rooms that are spacious and the views are great. This is my third visit to Helsinki and each time I always stay at Sokos Vaakuna - the location is fabulous, the staff are amazing, the wifi is reliable and the breakfast is fabulous. Thanks for always making my stay fantastic.”
“Overall, the hotel is very professional with everything else and is perhaps the best location, one could ask for ! Just opposite the bus/train station. There cannot be a better address !”
“Sokos Hotel Vaakuna has such a central location that it cannot be beaten in Helsinki. Opposite to the main railway station and only 100 m from the Finnair airport bus stop. Nice city view from the restaurant in the 10th floor where also breakfast is served. Rooms are of standard size and equipped with all what you need, not luxurious but sufficient for me at least.”
