Convenient hotel
The single bed room was decent for the stay in the city. Nice panoramic view of the city from the balcony. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Long hours of sauna.

Excellent location but a little bit dated property
As a 60-plus-year-old hotel, Vaakuna is a Helsinki staple. Its location is unbeatable location and, all in all, it's a nice hotel. The lobby is small as are some of the guest rooms (I've stayed in two). On my first stay the breakfast room and the spread were amazing but on this most recent stay the experience was mediocre at best due to some renovations that are happening on the 10th floor. The rooftop terrace is pretty cool (figuratively and - in December - literally)! Although the second stay wasn't quite as good as the first one, I'll still consider staying there in the future.

Happy in Helsinki
Nice hotel in an excellent location for sightseeing. There is a McDonald's literally inside the hotel and a department store, as well. Staff was very nice. I would have liked it if the hotel could have handled a money exchange for us. However, we were able to do this at the railway station just across the street. Breakfast was excellent.

Very nice hotel in a central location in Helsinki.
Great location next to the train station, and shopping. We walked to the harbor several times.
