Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna, Hämeenlinna
The happiest lake hotel in Finland!

Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna has a strong sense of authenticity, happiness, joy and relaxation. This hotel is a "happy people's hotel and restaurant by the lake".

Hotel Manager Jouni Kämäri often says: "When both the customer and we, the staff, feel the visit has been a success, I can see that this brings about a true, shared sense of joy." This is what a happy visit is like. It needs to be felt!

The hotel offers you the opportunity to relax by the Vanajavesi lake, cycle or walk a beach route with a fantastic view, or perhaps go canoeing to enjoy the wonderful nature. In winter, the lakeview will take your breath away. In summer, you can feel a refreshing gust of wind from the lake on our terrace, just a railing's length from the lake.

The hotel's unique restaurant is called Le Blason. It is French for a coat-of-arms – Vaakuna, the hotel's name in Finnish. The restaurant is strongly committed to high-quality ingredients, honest flavours and dining together.
The restaurant's speciality is delicacies served on long planks for sharing by the whole table. This ensemble is called Tête-à-Tête – face to face. In Chef Matti Saarinen's words, "It's important to me that people enjoy my food and that they can FEEL it too!"
