Scandic Kuopio

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I didn't expect much from the hotel, but my room was one of the nicest once I've had on a business trip in Finland. The location is a bit off from the city center and the market place. There seemed to be a lake just behind the hotel so I imagine it would be beautiful in the summer time. The breakfast was standard. The staff was the most confusing part... some were really nice and friendly and some seemed like they couldn't care less.

One night stay on a weekend break. The location of the hotel is not the most central but it is situated right at waterfront with beautiful views in summertime. The hotel is easily reached by car and has on-site parking, although the parking lot is a little small. Both the check-in and check-out were fast and efficient. The room was quiet, clean, well maintained and quite spacious with a good bed and good amenities. The breakfast was a standard continental selection but the ingredients were fresh and tasty, we especially appreciated the warm buns. We did dine at the on-site restaurant and were quite pleased with both the quality of food and service. Overall, I would recommend this hotel as the first choice when staying in Kuopio.

Scandic Kuopio is in great location in the city centre and by the lake. Friendly staff and good service were a pleasant surprise during my stay. The hotel is not brand new and it has a bit of an 80's feeling. Still, it is clean and pleasant to stay. The breakfast is good Nordic level with plenty of cold and warm options. Meeting rooms are available and well equipped.

Best Hotel in Kuopio ! For example the served local fish called Muikku is the best what restaurant can offer. The rooms are very clean and the folk in reception is very kindly. I can warmly recommed this Hotel as bussiness people as famiy resort. Swimmng pool is Great !

Excellent hotel. The rooms are airy and tastefully decorated. Service is good. The restaurant is very good with a good A la Carte menu for dinner. Breakfast is plentiful with a buffet of everything possible - AND it is SFV. Vegans have their own fridge of delights - every plant milk, vegan cheese and “meats” (violife etc). Falafels also. Fantastic stay. Wi-fi, quiet, lakes views from many rooms. Whilst not right on the town centre, it’s only a short walk. Highly recommended.

In addition to what is mentioned in the title the surroundings are great, close to nature and not far from the city. Also possibility to sauna and spa. The selection in the shop is only to make you survive if you had forgotten something at home.

Good room and good breakfast. Gym and sauna were good plus. The children were given coloring distances, and other children were well considered. Room had good beds. The room was quiet. In the courtyard area there is a free car park.

Excellent location beside lake and near Kuopio city. Hotel's personnel were very helpful. Great breakfast. Silent room with a great view over Kuopio city. In the hotel there are a sauna, gym and a good restaurang.

Hotel was OK, good and tidy rooms, restaurant had tasty meals and excellent breakfast. Location is also good, especially during the summer - close to beautiful lake and harbour. In November could not enjoy the surroundings too much, but the center is also in walking distance.

Scandic hotel in Kuopio is located on the wonderful lake Kallavesi. You might have a view to it from your room, but at least from the breakfast hall (breakfast being quite rich). The rooms are spacious (although I did not specially like the mixture of all kinds of furniture and an iron, t.ex). Bathroom is great. The city center is in a walking distance, and the city has many points of interest.
