In a walking distance from the city centre. The staff is teachers and students and their work quality is outstanding. The rooms are clean, comfortable, TV and wifi. The food, especially breakfast, was really good, fresh vegetables and fruit served every day. Enjoyed the stay.

I was in West Bestern Savonia, Kuopio, for a 3 nights stay to work at the local University. The location is at walking distance from University/Hospital, and it's probably the cheapest hotel in Kuopio. It is far from the city center, but it is close to the cross-country skiing area, which is beatiful even if you (like me) don't do... More

I chose this hotel for my stay as it was located quite close to the city center and had free parking. This time I also had my dog with me and they have some rooms for guests with pets. The service was friendly, the room was clean and really spacious and the breakfast was ok, too. The only downside was... More

This hotel is an educational hotel for local school, Savo vocational college. So the staff consist partly of teaching staff and young students. The serving staff is really nice and friendly. The breakfast is also really good. The rooms are very clean but otherwise just average and some defects can be found (broken showers etc.), the walls are really thin... More

You might think that staying at this hotel is a good idea given its proximity to hospital and university, trust me, it is not! The price of the room is only twentysomething euros less than at a REAL hotel and so why would you stay here? This is more like a hostel with its lousy, noisy, untidy, dated rooms. My... More

Such a lousy hotel. Rooms are old and ugly, shower was broken, rooms very noisy. I specifically asked for a quiet room in my booking and they put me right next to fire door and elevator. Nice! It was not possible to change room later. Good thing was breakfast and amazing outdoor possibilities nearby.

The hotel serves as a practice hotel and restaurant for students in tourism business. During the summer time, there were no trainees, but the service was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is of great value of money. Rooms are spacious and clean, albeit slightly worn out and old-fashioned. During our stay, it was unusually hot outside - and the... More

Stayed here twice so far, average hotel. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are reasonably big, furniture (bathroom) is a bit outdated and basic. Nothing luxurious but a good place to stay if you're on a business trip. Free wifi, good breakfast.
