            Big room and restaurant was open till late (24:00hr) in the evening.

            Wireless internet connection was not that fast, but for the rest is was OK.

          • Single
            8.2

            The hotel is right by the railway station and close to everything. The breakfast was good.

          • Couple
            8.8

            Large room (superior), excellent breakfast, friendly staff

            The room floor was dirty

          • Single
            6.6

            Cleanliness, space, staff

            Noisy location. Works on underground parking (should be noticed on booking)

          • Couple
            5.4

            The location, which is very central.

            The receptionist didn't pay attention to us, when we checked in. We didn't get informed about where our room was located or where and when the breakfast would be served. I had to tell him my name twice, although I had just given him our reservation information on paper. I also had to ask him twice whether we could check out later than 12 o'clock the next day, because he didn't seem to be listening. Instead he was focusing on arguing with previous customers about a payment. The curtains and the bedspread were stained. I expected some quality for the price, so I was very disappointed on the outcome.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            The hotel was very comfortable when traveling with young children. We got an upgrade of room because the reservation system allowed us to book standard room even thought there is not enough room in standard room when traveling with two young kids.

          • Couple
            8.8

            Great location. Clean room and hotel. Very good breakfast!

            Kettle and tea in the room would be nice addition! Also few spare pillows would be nice since pillows in Finland are uselessly flat!

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Central location to shop and transport. Enjoyed the sauna facilities.

          • Single
            5.8

            Some of staff were friendly.

            I didn't like that there were no carpets on the floor.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Spending almost 15 years in international business environment and travelling across continentals, east and west side of the world - world city hotels are are ok but mostly worn out or boring. They are all the same.

            I prefer small unique hotels or accommondations where the service is more focused in quality in all than quantity.

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            Room size was excellent

            2 days we had to ask them to clean the room and replenish towels tea etc, they only did it on one of those days

          • Couple
            7.0

            Nothing special - not luxory. But clean, in the center of the city, good breakfast. Atmosphere little boring and "clean" - but with our price we were satisfied.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            The location is really good.

            There were very few amenities and toiletries in the room, but I think that's because of the ecological thinking.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            The location was ideal for us right opposite the pick up point to and from the airport and easy for buses around town and outside town. Near to the husstle and bustle of the main street and pretty city centre. Hotel was comfortable enough and breakfasts good.

            Not very clean in places. The room was clean but the bathroom floor was very dirty and the tiles had mold on them. The bathroom floor was never cleaned during the 3 day stay and there was an unpleasant smell in it. There was no bath mat either so we had to use a towel to stand on . I noticed that in the breakfast room where there was this wooded frame work around and above the seating area it was thick in dust - not very good where there is food and tables for eating at. and the floors were greasy - this was a put off not up to my standards.

          • Single
            6.2

            Friendly staff, good location on the main street and near the trainstation, good breakfast, big room

            The bathroom was rather small and only had a very small shower cabin. A bath would have been nice!
