Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel and hotel room facing to lake Kallavesi. Clean room. Good breakfast. good location. The gym OK. Very friendly reception. Kiva huone näköala Kallavedelle päin. Aamiainen hyvä. Sijainti erinomainen.

The breakfast is both tasty and healthy and there are fresh choices for everybody. The staff at the restaurant made us feel welcome. The view on the lake is nice. The room decor does not fit the surroundings of the hotel. Perhaps classic Nordic design might fit the beautiful location of the hotel better.

nice hotel. Not bad restaurant. But all dishes were with the same sauce. Big parking in the site. Breakfast is good with a choice of hot food, porridge’s and many more. Big choice of drinks, milk and etc. they have additional entrance from the parking area. Very beautiful view during the breakfast. Near the water.

Kuopio is a very nice town at winter time too. Se went skating on the ice where you van choose a route 1 - 7,5 km. Nice experiense! The town itself is a small one, but cousy. We will certainly go again!

Excellent location by the lake. Great facilities, gym, sauna and swimming pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. I had a room at the lake front, no noise asn great view. The food menu, wine and beers list is very good and taste even better.

It was pleasure to visit there. It was my first visit there but for sure it wasn't last time. Room were ready on time and it was modern. Dinner was excellent and menu was easy. No too complicated. Service at hotel was very nice and kindy. I can recommend.

I stayed for one night and had dinner in the hotel restaurant. Taste and quality of the food was very good. Room was excellent for my purpose and the room was very clean and quiet. Location is by the lake and you can have very nice view over the lake. Other vice the location is around kilometer from the city center.

Excellent gluten-free breakfast with multiple choice of bread, cerial, granola etc. Beautiful location next to the lake and at the same time near to the city center. Friendly staff. Comfortable rooms.

Very nice and quiet place to relax for a business trip. Breakfast includes several different things and quality is good. Pool area and gym is also good size and there was no traffic, so you can take your own space. Bed quality is above the average, also cleanliness. Excellent and fast service!

The hotel is located close to the city centre and has beautiful surroundings. It has its own big parking place. The interior looks new and fresh. The personnel is nice and friendly. The best part of this hotel is its spacious and good-looking common areas, including dining spaces, breakfast zone, sauna and swimming pool with jacuzzi. The gym is well-equipped. The disappointing part was room service. We had booked a room with double bed, but we got a room with two small beds put together. So, we had uncomfortable sleep. The cleaning was awful. The trash was only partly taken out and the bed was not made in full. Once maid even did not come at all, and we had to ask receptionist to solve the issue. Another day in the morning we took our towels to the swimming pool but the maid did not bring new ones and we had to reuse the same towels which was unpleasant to do after wiping off chloride water. In addition to this, in our room there was a huge stain on pouffe. The surrounding area that belongs to the hotel is not well-maintained during the winter time and it was very slippery to walk there.
