Nice hotel and good service. Free parking in the back yard. Breakfast is good. Room is fine and relative old decoration. We were late arriving and staff was very kind, also there is small gift waiting for us. Good for family stay.
Weekend break, two nights. Hotel is easy to locate and has an outdoor parking space. Upon check-in, the front staff was friendly and polite but had only little interest in providing us information about the hotel and the available services. We had booked a suite which, according to the description on the website, is luxurious and has everything one needs for a good night's sleep. In reality the room was really dated and, in many places, very worn with plenty of visible signs of wear and tear. There was visible dust around, especially on the manually operated fan sitting on the table in plain sight, such that when it was switched on literally a small could of dust was blown into the air. Moreover, there was dried hair on the floor of the main bathroom and paint was peeling off from the shower curtain rod such that bits of it fell on top of our heads when drawing the shower curtains. We notified the front staff of these problems the first morning, but sadly none was taken care of. Furthermore, the bed was really dated as was the furniture overall, and the used glasses and spoons were not replaced during our stay. We were looking forward to discussing the issues with the front staff when checking out, however they seemed uninterested about our experience as guests and did not ask how our stay had been. I then later exchanged emails with the front office manager who was really polite and understanding about these issues, which was definitely a plus. Overall, I cannot wholeheartedly recommend this hotel based on the recent experience as a whole, but at least we were quite satisfied with the breakfast buffet as well as with the service and food at the on-site restaurant.
Kind and helpful staff, decent lobby bar, gym room, good breakfast and quiet night sleep. That's the standard of Scandic hotel group and the standards were met also here. Just one night here but an important one to relax before the busy business week in Helsinki.
I had superior room for one night here. The room itself was ok, except the toilet/bathroom was straight from 80s. The room was not very soundproof, you could hear the noise from the street and from the hall. The breakfast was also dissappointment. The waiter was very lazy to clean up the tables and the breakfast itself was not very diverse. Couple of my friends that do business in Riihimäki, use hotels in Hämeenlinna. Now I understand that.
Rather old and old-fashioned Hotel, in a very sleepy little town. Room spacious but weirdly furnished, bathroom very small and old. Bed rather soft. Cleanliness is good. One evening i ate at the Restaurant, that was excellent food!
We stayed two nights in order to do some tourist stuff in Riihimäki (a strange idea as there was little going on). The room was quite ok - resently refurbished. The other areas were, however, out of date - the restaurant took us back to the time when we were young (some 35 - 40 years ago!). The food was surprisingly good and service friendly. The hotel is centrally located and has free private parking. I was tempted to give only two points, but then again, the hotel was not expensive either so the price quality balance was ok.
"Wedding package" for the suite was very satisfactory. The meals were delicious. The suite offers sauna and jacuzzi. Breakfast was served to the room. Nice presents and greetings from the staff were waiting in the room.
nice Hotel with new rooms. staff is very Kind and always taking care of customers very well. I was staying there 1.5 years, the Restaurant was fullfilling always my wishes and they served great Food. after all i felt like at home
Room was spacious and nicely (newly) decorated, the room and bathroom was clean and good standard, quick and friendly check-in with English speaking staff, relaxed atmosphere, breakfast was of good quality but missing some more fresh products, overall good value for money
locals say that this best hotel in the town hotel is quite old, nothing fancy but clean and has all you need, free car park etc rooms are fine, likeon photos, has sauna some kind of gym breakfest is ok
