Scandic Kuopio

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had a two room suite with two bathrooms and private sauna. We had the nicest lake view from every window, even the sauna! Clean spacious and cosy suite. The only thing missed was a proper wardrobe/closet/drawers for the clothes and all the things! I really hate to store my items in the suitcase stored on the floor. We found very much to do in the hotel: few games in the terrace/garden, kids' play rooms, gym and a nice pool and jacuzzi. Breakfast was excellent as always at Scandic and we liked the dinner restaurant both the evenigs as well. Great frienly staff there.

The room was clean, tidy and big enough for us and our 2 children but pretty standard. What makes the hotel great value for money is the beautiful location by the lake, the friendly staff, especially our kids loved the pool and I appreciate the great selection of glutenfree products Scandic has.

This hotel is right on the lake! Our room was spacious with a gorgeous view. The staff was wonderful and their recommendations of restaurants were perfect. It is a short walk into town with a delightful Finnish Market and outside market as well. This was a great base to visit Valamo Monastery and the National Parks. The breakfast was amazing we especially loved the fresh berries. We would highly recommend this hotel!

Basic Scandic hotel. Meaning clean rooms, good food, pleasant service and enough parking space. Location is nice if you prefer more calm location with lake in close proximity. So its not in the middle of the city and all the hazzle. But you can walk to the center in 15 mins or take take one of the hotels free of charge bikes to go around the city

This hotel offers great view to the lake. Staff was very helpful. Tennis courts and beach are next to the hotel. Room was big and has air conditioning, enough for adult and 3 kids. In the breakfast was lots of choices.

Nice hotel, near the lake, beach clean and cozy, could have stayed there longer, breakfast good and plentiful. Staff friendly. Hotel location good, near all the services and harbor. Good saunas and swimming pool.

Kids loved swimming in the pool. And the breakfast was plentifull, but not perfect without pancakes. Parking lot was easy to access. Location was good but a bit far from the Centre. Pictures on the wall of the room were awkward.

Very good hotel. Great location. Near to city and beach. Hotel room are fine. Sauna and swimmingpool. Gym. Family hotel. Breakfast is a great. Near to city, you can walk or rent a bike. ☆☆☆☆ four star for our family

Visited two nights here last month. Everything worked at normal Scandic level: good breakfast, clean and quiet rooms etc. Hotel is located at the waterfront so there are big amount (not all) of rooms directly facing to lake. Easy to go walk/run relaxing lakeside and there was little beach also near by. Distance to marketplace is around 10-15min walk but you can reach beautiful church during the walk. I believe that this hotel would good choice for families but has also big conference rooms for other kind of purposes. A good choice if you want to see lake. Building looked old but rooms are renovated in last few years.

The overall stay was great. The location is a nice 10minute walk from the city center. The area near the lake is beautiful. They had an amazing vegan breakfest, the best I have yet to experince. The rooms were trendy and spacious.
