Recent guest reviews
I visited Kuopio and was delighted that I chose Scandic, which have indoor pool, sauna department and good gym for workout. Especially I was delighted about the staff at restaurant. Very kind and joyfyl, which is not very commin in Finland. Especially joyfyl is not typically seen in Finland very often. I will choose this hotel again.
+ Very nice location near a lake and good surroundings for outdoor activities (jogging route, beach, tenniscourt, basketball court) + Friendly personnel + Swimming pool and gym Can be recomended for families
Scandic Kuopio has been recently renovated. The hotel room was clean and nice. Very tasty breakfast buffet. The best in this hotel is that it is in the city of Kuopio and is situated by the beautiful lake.
Sauna was heated only for me, with pool and yacuzzi it was a wonderful start for a day, there's possibility to swim in the lake too. Food was delicious and free bikes were wonderful. Special thanks for the big selection of teas
The best hotel in Kuopio as fas as location is concerned. At summer time, no other hotel can beat Scandic. The surroundings are nothing short of breathtaking. The location beside the lake simply provides a scenery that is absolutely titillating.
This hotel is located by the lake and about 500 meters from city centre and harbour. We had a superior room with a "Lake view". In fact through the window was a parking place and lake was far lelt - yes you can see it but it is not a Lake view. Hotel feels old and outdated. They had a small terrace facingh the lake, but no service - you had to go to lobby bar and purchace drinks there. Breakfast was ok, just ok. Small variety and cramped displays. Not worth 150€ we paid. Sub 100€ would be about right.
The hotel is located by Lake Kallavesi. There is a 5 minutes walk to the beach, a 15 minutes walk to the market place and a 20 minutes walk to the railway station. Many rooms have great lake views. We had booked a superior extra room, because all of them have a balcony. The room has been recently refurbished to have a same style as in many Scandic hotels. The room was quite small but very practical for a short stay. For longer stays there is not enough storage space. We were lucky to get our room from the top 5th floor and from the side with better lake views. There are also balcony rooms on the 2nd floor. The balcony was very narrow and not furnished. Also the balcony would need some cleaning. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant. The service and the food were quite good, but the interiors would need some updating. The attached bar is much more attractive. You can also eat there. The breakfast was served in the conference halls with lake views. It was excellent in the food selection and it was easy to find a clean table.
I liked really much that one younger black haired lady in the reception. Really nice attitude and service. Overall, the staff was friendly and taking care of my needs. I really enjoyed. Also visiting next time in Scandic Kuopio and not thinking any other hotels.
The room is good and in my room there was sofa too and it was nice to have. The service was very good. The meeting room was good. The situation is a excellent, Kallavesi-lake is so beautiful always, even in winter.
I was in this hotel now for second time and I must say that I can highly recommend it! The hotel location is superb, right next to the main lake in Kuopio district: lake Kallavesi. Child-friendly beach is just behind the corner. The hotel facilities are good: well equipped gym, pool area which was loved by my kids, room was modern and clean. Pretty much all you can think of needing for a family holiday. The real thing though, that will definitely make us go back there again, is their restaurant/bar personnel ❤️. We had a good laugh with them, they really seemed to enjoy their work and made us feel like at home both evenings. One thing why not giving the full 5 dots instead "very good"-grade for this hotel is that they need to install "Tip adding possibility" to their cardreaders so people/hotel guests can reward their personnel with some decent rewards for superb service 😃. - Thank you!
