I was in Spa hotel Rauhalahti in a conference. The meeting rooms were ok. The hotel reception was efficient and friendly. The hotel room was clean and very comfortable. The view was to a thick forest of spruces. It's a pity that even though the hotel is close to the lake there isn't any view to the lake. The hotel... More

Stayed one night in family size apartment after attending a wedding ceremony in Kuopio. All five of us had enough room and separate bedroom for adults. Cleanliness in the room was ok. Breakfast as well, also local specialties were included. The spa, especially sauna area, is in need of renovation in the near future but is still in average shape... More

I visited just in the spa. The spa is quite old and small. I think It needs renovation. In particular, saunas and bath were in poor condition. There is many different swimming pools : one for swimming, one warm , short slide and outdoor pool . Their ticket price to spa is very reasonable.

This hotel is in the beautiful lake country of Finland. Its lakeside location is totally different but equally stunning in Summer and Winter. Activities are available at all times of year. Inside the hotel is a swimming pool which includes 3 jacuzzis, a warm outside pool, a hot pool, a cool pool, play pools for infants and a lane swimming... More

The hotel is in a stunning location, with lots of beautiful lakeside walks through the trees. I took a taxi there from the airport which took about 20 mins. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the room was a nice size, and comfortable. A nice choice of food, and on certain nights you can go for a traditional meal... More

Second time we've been here, back to the same apartment (Suvas 646) which had been improved since 2012. ( the 3rd bedroom had had a sliding dividing partition installed and the tv had been enlarged. In winter the lake is frozen and it's quite a novelty walking and skiing on it. This year though the Finnish winter was milder than... More

This is not about the Spa Hotel but about a fabulous place for relaxation that can be reached either walking through a little area of woodland or one could drive there. Going there with a motorhome was a bit to much so we parked at the Spa Hotel then walked. The place is open on Tuesdays 4-10 pm and also... More

Overall, Rauhalahti exceeded expectations. There are two segments to the lake resort here, the main hotel building & the twin efficiency studio apartment buildings. I stayed in one of the apartments- so I cannot evaluate its regular rooms. The building is solidly built & insulated with bricks. Most basic appliances are present in the efficiency; except a cooling system for... More

If you wish to experience what it was like staying in a spa hotel in the Russian era, this is your best bet. It is definitely not my idea of a holiday hotel even if it may have been only for 1 night. The room is small and cramped, and totally dysfunctional and outdated. There is no a/c, no windows,... More
