Evaluations of Original Sokos Vaakuna
You can use free finnish sauna + 10% discount from Sokos department store!
I liked the 50's style. Just in the middle of city (if anyone has time to take advantage of it).
Worn out (but not badly) and thus a bit pricy.
If you suffer claustrofobic do not use the lifts.
quite small rooms very small elevators
The hotel would need renovation
There is no stairs to the floors which you could use. There is lifts which are 15m2 for 6 people so if you suffer claustrofobic do not choose this hotel.
personnel at the reception was friendly and knowledgeable. excellent English. central location there is a great Tapas Bar on the ground floor right in the hotel
The hotel has all the charm of a post-Soviet warehouse with the furniture to match. The roomkey did not work and it's a VERY long way back to the reception - the hotel is large! The room (at least the one I had) was quite big but the mattress was saggy and way too soft. Breakfast was minimalistic dirty tables everywhere spilled coffee on the flor. But a nice view over the city from the terrace. For all that the price (€ 18500 for one person and one night) was outrageous!
excellent location quiet rooms polite staff.
some parts of the hotel would need renovation -like the restaurant downstairs & the breakfast room.
