Recent guest reviews

Very nice view to the city and river. Staff was super professional and very helpfull. All of them were happy and nice. Very good sleep we got in a supercomfortable bed. Breakfast was very tasty and in the evening we had an olympic games studio in the lobbybar.

Arrived late, but were made immediately more than welcome by the lady at the reception. The hotel is extremely well located especially if you like swimming - as I do. The breakfast was also very nice.

Another excellent stay at Scandic Kajanus. The usual friendly and professional staff. Highly recommended if looking for somewhere to stay while visiting Kajaani. Very conveniently located to the town centre and transport facilities.

Clean, good location, you can take your pet with you, very nice staff. Rooms are ok and breakfast was good. We stay two nights with our three dogs. It was new year eve and hotel was still very quiet. Gym was new and very good!

Nice hotell eith a good breakfast. Very good tv channels and all envirement according to telecommunications. Minibar was +. Possibility to use the pools and saunas for a cheap prise was really good. I rekommend the swimminghall for everyone. It was super clean and very nice with many pools.

It is luxury to have a Les Mills workout possibility in the hotel. There is also possibility to go to swimming in the next door. Service and location of the hotel are excellent. I will always use this hotel in my work trips.

The nearby Air suction units for whole hotel ( THIS IS NOT Not Air condition, because there is no such a thing, no way to shut air suction off either ) keep going all night along with a such intensity that you FEEL the noise and physical FLUTTER inside your body. I think all rooms on that corner of the hotel are pretty much the same. My family member ( With The SCANDIC "3rdFloor" member ) was once in that floor and say also that never ever again on that spot of the hotel. I was was given by my request other room and I got one on the same floor, a road side one and after plugging off the minibar ( The Standard Procedure to have noise level on Scandic Kajanus ) the room was quiet enough for a sleep, two nights total. Three times this year on that hotel...

Usually Scandic Hotels are very good, but this time I was not satisfied with the room. Even I have booked a „Superior Extra“ room I was disappointed when coming into my room. It was old, no carpet on the floor, no table except of the writing desk, no arm chair (sofa has been), bath room was old with blue tiling and in the shower the silicone hems where yellow and partly black. The sauna which belongs to the room was very (!) small Usually on the backboard of the writing desk are installed sockets, but not in this room. To get power for the laptop I had to crawl on the floor under the desk. Later on I have borrowed an extension cable from the reception. Summarized the room was uncomfortable and impersonal. Breakfast was good as usual and also has been the hotel sauna. Very good steam. The Kajanus Hotel offers also the possibility to use the public swimming hall without going outside. Of course, you must pay for entry, but can go with the bathrobe from the room for swimming.

Situated in a nice place near the centre. Really friendly staff. The breakfast was really good. Definately worth visiting! Even our dogs got their own surprise bags. Our family will visit again, if we'll visit Kajaani again. Also Kaukavesi swimhall was good and cheap.

Scandic is located just by the river on the other side than city center. Everything is on the walking distance. Location is nice by the waterfront and park with trails. Also swimming hall and gym are next door. Hotel is quite big compared to city size. I had a twin room which was spacious. The room also included very small sauna which was nice bonus. I didn't use sauna though. Room was clean but bit oldish style like whole hotel. But interior was not that bad. My room was on the second floor facing inner yard. It was very quiet. Only minibar and footsteps in the upstairs made some noise. Toilet was spacious and had shower, not bath. Free wifi worked well and TV had HDMI connectors to connect your own devices like Scandics usually have. Also breakfast was good Scandic quality with wide selection of everything. Bar was small and had very limited beer selection. Staff was friendly and overall experience nice and comfortable.
