These chain hotels usually are safe choice in Finland and so was this Cumulus. Lobby with some sofas and little bar area. Room was basic Scandinavian style and clean. Free WiFi and breakfast is nice surprise especially for many foreigners. Good Italian style restaurant Martina downstairs(serves their breakfast too). Few "bad" things though. No bathrobes, slippers or coffee making amenities... More

You can stay here as well as any of the Sokos hotels, it is the same standard and service. The location is OK, you can take a short walk and find a few restaurants to choose from. Breakfast was OK but nothing special. Wifi coverage was good but a bit slow

We stayed here for a conference at the university. The location was within walking distance to the main campus, as well as the Finn Air bus stop. The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was both Scandinavian and American style. It may be a little expensive for normal family trips but for business it was fine.

I normally use Sokos Hotels when visit at Joensuu, cause I know what I get. We stayed at this hotel 2 nights, well second night we left middle of the night cause we couldn't handle it anymore. Cumulus webpage it says that hotel has free parking... oh yeah! We arrived evening, we were tired and it was raining, thunderstorm. Reception... More

Joensuu as a town doesn't have much to recommend it. Even though it's in the centre of the ancient region of Karelia, there is pitiably little cultural heritage. It's a rather drab and dull place in which almost all the buildings are rectangular and of equal height. Of course it was nearly obliterated in WW2, first by the Germans then... More

Spacious room and bathroom compared to some European ones, although we didn't have much time to spend in a room. Clean. Excellent breakfast. Centrally located (as can be expected in a small town). Also a cinema round the corner.

I stayed in this hotel for 7 nights. The WiFi is good, you have to ask for codes at the reception. TV fine. Mattress OK, but pillows leave to be desired. Also the shower is good. Toiletries are minimal: big size soap dispenser at washing basin, shampoo in shower, and that's it. Especially one receptionist was very friendly and professional... More

I stayed in the Cumulus Hotel, Joensuu, for five nights in March 2013. I cannot fault the hotel in any way. It was warm, comfortable and clean. The hotel offers a good range of facilities, including a restaurant and bar downstairs. One of the best facilities was the sauna, however. It opens every evening at 5 o'clock and gives guests...
