Positive Reviews

Can't Beat the Location

One of the best parts about this hotel is the location that comes along with it. You won't need to worry about transportation - there is so much to do all around you, all you have to do is walk outside and you will be near it all.

Welcoming, Friendly Staff A Bonus

The staff members at this hotel are truly extraordinary and stop at nothing to ensure your every need is met. They are quick to offer advice or direction to a local spot. No matter what it takes, they are there to make it happen.

Delicious Food Served Here

Another area Original Sokos Vaakuna excels in is with the food they provide. Each dish is prepared freshly onsite and uses only top-of-the-line ingredients, so you will be able to enjoy every single meal you have here.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast Gets Packed

If you decide you want to partake in the hotel's food options, you will want to get there early. The dining area is extremely small and cramped, so it fills up pretty quickly. You might not be able to get a seat.

Needs Updating Throughout

Something the hotel could do to bring up its appeal is some updating and remodelling. It has been around for a while and you will be able to see its age in certain spots.

Pretty Basic Accommodations

If you are looking for a luxurious stay, this is not the hotel for you. It is a very basic, no-frills hotel, so you won't get many extras here.
