Sunny Helsinki exploring with bus pass

A travel blog entry by jgraydon


... and travelled by the Olympic stadium and back to Market Square. After wandering by market stalls near the water where food like reindeer meatballs was being cooked, we climbed up to Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral 1868 and went through it. Then we walked to green domed white St. Nicholas Lutheran Cathedral with a very austere interior which was in Senate Square. We walked through some shops where they sold ...

Day 23 - Helsinki, Finland

A travel blog entry by lbphoto23


Today we are in Helsinki, Finland. It was a little scenic cruising in till we got almost to our pier. Holy Cow! This whole city is a construction site. It was already a let down from St Petersburg, but I feel like I should be driving a dump truck, or something. Anyway, the ship excursions bored us, so it is a hop on, hop off bus day. We managed to get the first bus out, but it was morning rush hour. Not good, but we were tired, and sitting in traffic didn't seem so ...

Reunited at Last! And food!

A travel blog entry by pandasphere


... We got an appetizer of dill-marinated vendace with smoked salmon and herring, and I ended up getting sauteed reindeer served with lingonberries and picked gherkins while Jon opted for a fillet of reindeer salad. We also got a pint of Finnish beer. Everything was quite good! The reindeer-meat/lingonberry/pickle combination was delicious. Would recommend for sure.

After that we stopped by some other bar to get some Finnish IPA, which was also tasty. At ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Original Sokos Hotel Presidentti Helsinki

    Good value for money hotel


    Hotel in the centre of Stockholm, nice breakfast buffet, rooms average but very helpful staff in the reception.

    Would go again.



    This hotel offers great value: rooms are modern, beds are really comfortable, staff are helpful and the breakfast buffet is abundant. Also the location is really convenient, close to the railway station and the shops.

    Terrible breakfast


    It was my second time in Finland, but the first time I stayed in Helsinki for several nights (end of November). Sokos Hotel Presidentti (formerly, Ramada hotel, so do not be confused when you see Ramada on top of ratings here and Sokos Presidentti being number 58 or so - it is all one hotel) was not my first choice but it had available rooms at reasonable price, so my Mom and I stayed there. Reception is friendly, although when there are lots of visitors arriving you have to stay in lines as people at the reception are not able to cope with all of them (sometimes, the lines are not friendly :)

    Good value


    This hotel is situated in the centre of Helsinki, very near the big shopping malls. I booked a standard twin room for me and my girlfriend through Hotelclub, getting a very fair discount, making this hotel price worthy.

    Great Location


    This hotel had an excellent location - next to the railway station and only a one minute walk from the centre.

    The room was lovely and had a nice en-suite with bath and overhead shower. The tv channels were not so good but hey who's there to watch tv?

    Breakfast was a buffet and had an excellent selection including salad, toast, bread, scrambled egg and cereals. The reception staff were also nice and friendly.

    Omly minus mark was for the sauna which is only open from 0700 until 1000 and then 1700 until 2000. I don't know why this was but personally I'm having dinner between 5pm and 8pm!

    Otherwise a lovely hotel.

    Wonderful hotel !!!


    This hotel was simply wonderful : really nice room with a big TV set, a bath in the bathroom, very good breakfast, helpful and nice staff. Everything was clean and modern, and the location was one of the best in central Helsinki : you had everything near !!! An excellent value !

    Great hotel!


    Very good hotel! Very central, practically next to the Railway Station. We had a really posh room for little dosh. Breakfast was plentiful and the service was impeccable.

    Keep it up!
