Great hotel with fab views

Posted Apr 6, 2016
Pros: The location, the staff and the comfortable lounge
Location: Right in the centre of town, by the river and park with plenty of public transport nearby too. Less than 10 minutes walk from Tampere station.
The great staff at this hotel complement the comfortable rooms and good facilities to give you a great stay. The food is really good and the breakfast was one of the freshest I've had in any hotel.

Location and child friendly

Posted Jun 17, 2015
Pros: Location plus family and business friendly environ
Cons: Perhaps AC during summer
Location: Shopping, dining, entertaining
We have always loved to stay in this hotel because of the location! The breakfast is excellent!!! As business owners with children, it make sense to have everything under one roof e.g. Location to playground, walking at the kiosk, shops, transport, market square to name a few.. The minus is that the room can get too hot and would need to open the window for better sleep. Overall, a very satisfying stay.

Well-located city centre Tampere hotel

Posted Nov 6, 2014
Pros: Fabulous location near the centre of town (ask for a room overlooking the river), friendly reception staff, free bike hire, pleasant restaurant.
Cons: Dinner service was a bit slow, room was quite hot at night.
Top-notch location overlooking the river in the city centre (ask for a room with a view). Large clean comfortable room, great sauna & pool in the basement! Free Wi-Fi in the lobby & bar, although reception in the room was patchy. Dined well in the pleasant restaurant on the ground floor, despite the slightly slow service, lovely breakfast buffet. Free bike hire to explore this very cycle-friendly city. Overall, really pleasant stay, would happily return.

Dependable hotel in the heart of Tampere

Posted Nov 11, 2010
If you do not expect luxury but a good night's sleep at a decent hotel with an excellent location, this is a good choice. The architecture can hardly be considered inspiring; this is really your standard 1970s Finnish concrete building. The room was no-frills but reasonably spacious and very tidy. The bathroom had been newly renovated. Breakfast was plentiful and the service at the front desk as well as in he bar very good indeed.

Responsive staaff

Posted May 20, 2009
We had a problem in the parking garage. The sign on the wall says that the door will close in 20 seconds automatically if you do not proceed thru the gate quickly enough it will damage your car. Due to haste the car made contact with the concrete wall.

NIce location, friendly services

Posted Sep 29, 2008
The hotel is fine for anyone arriving in tampere since it is well situated close to the train station. The service is excellent and really firendly. Breakfast was really good, fresh bread etc, no excesses but all you need. For its location, services and price, it was a fairly satisfying experience.

Great location, good hotel

Posted Oct 11, 2007
The location was the best part, right on the river across from a small park, easywalking distance to nearly everything. The room was fine - nothing elaborate, but definately clean and well maintained. I'd stay there again.
