Recent guest reviews

This hotel is having a very friendly and helpfull staff. Even if at least part of the rooms are outdated, they are clean. There is a possibility visit a swimming pool/ spa in the next building. In winter there are skiing tracks access just outside of the hotel.

We picked this hotel for the possibility to access the swimming hall via indoor corridor. The swimming hall was a small one but enough for one visit. Hotel staff was helpful and made us enjoy our stay. The hotel itself is a bit oldish. Anyway the only real minus was poor cleaning of our room.

Reception messed up with rooms; there was a previous quest still in our room when we got our key! Otherwise ok hotel. Gym is really good. Own sauna in room. Breakfast same as in every scandic, basic breakfast.

Nice staff and very helpfull. Hotel standard is OK. They have outdoor parkibg in front of the hotel. Hotel has a own little gym and sauna. Restaurant and breakfest was also OK. Price and quality was OK

We've very enjoyed staying Scandic Kajaani: (+) very helpful staff (we had some problem with our car because it was -31C and the receptionist tried to help us any way), good location - on the side of the river, picturesque and panoramic view out of our room, private perfect sauna in the room, good hotel room, separated for 2 parts, good restaurant (in the evening) and opportunity to visit Water Fitness Centre Kaukavesi (for additional money: family ticket = 13,60euro for 2 adults and 2 children). (-) Old bathroom with gap in the shower cabin, so very wet floor after every using shower; there were 4 of us - but there was only 1 chair and 1 armchair - a little bit uncomfortable; and breakfast - the first day of our staying we had arrived before an hour for closing - there had not been anything - sausages, eggs, scrambled eggs, beans, croissants...(((. Then everything appeared, but slowly. But the next day we arrived more earlier - so everything was OK!

I had to stay here in September 2016. There were not many available room in the city, so I picked this Scandic. The reception was a friendly one and checking in was an easy process. The room was a surprise: It was like making a time-travel to 1980's: The furniture was from the old days and I am afraid that the silicone seams in the bathrooms were as well... The bathroom door was literally rotten. The breakfast was in line with Scandic standards - Luckily it was not the 1980's.. If you want to stay in Scandic in Kajaani, this is the choice. Otherwise, select something else.

I've been traveling in Scandinavia now for whole summer due to business and stayed in numerous Scandic hotels (Lappenrantta, Helsinki, Kuopio, Tampere, Oslo, Bromma, Oulu...). So far Scandic Kajanus is the poorest Scandic hotel i've visited. Standard room is ok, but hotel in general is old (hallways dirty and worn out). Food in restaurant is not as good as in other Scandics. Breakfast is not fresh. During day you will be charged for the same coffee they make for breakfast and they don't have espresso machine. You could get better service for same money somewhere else.

As a previous visitor to Scandic Kajanus with my partner we were delighted to experience the same high professional standards as on our earlier visits. We would highly recommend Scandic to anyone looking for a great place to stay while visiting Finland.

We visited in Scandic Kajanus with my girlfriend while I was getting back from the business trip. We had nice big room (superior extra) with view to the city. The room was very basic but there was personal sauna in the bathroom which was a very good thing to have :) The conside of the sauna was that there wasn't any sewer connection from the bathrooms floor, so the water would stay on the floor for long time =/ The breakfast buffet is good and there is something for everyone (the porridge is vegan so does not include milk). I can recommend the lunch buffet which they offer.

Scandic Kajanus is the great place to stay for a weekend. I've stayed there a lot of times with my family and every stay was great. In this hotel you will find all things you need to enjoy your time with your neatest and dearest. The rooms for families are equipped with two bath rooms, sauna also can be a nice surprise! What's more the hotel has the adjusted swimming pool.
