From outside it doesn't look as good as inside. Room was nice. Rooms in north wing are quieter. There is night club in main building which makes it more noisy. In restaurants you can taste local foods. Service in restaurants was quite slow even when there was few people. Service was friendly, but I think those few waiters and waitresses... More

Firstly, the staff here are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the breakfasts are nice. The room was small though and in July could have done with air conditioning. A desk fan was provided but was not up to the task. The bathroom was the smallest I have stayed in, but again it was clean and the shower... More

We stayed there one night. Late arrival was not a problem. Our room was spacy and clean, although the interior was a bit 90's. The staff was very kind and helpful. Diverse buffet breakfast included in the price.

Main reason to pick up this hotel when visiting Mikkeli is the special customer owners' rates sometimes better than standard rates generally. The ground floor lounge bar was good and so was the service there, too. Reception was polite and fast. Customer parking in the basement was confusing because it was kind of general public parking Place with pay automate.... More

Stayed here a night in april in the middle of the easter week. The personnel is really friendly and helpful, even the girls in the restaurant is really taking their job with high professionalism and not pushing rhe custmers although it got close to closing times. Rooms are little mediocre and dull but technology is fine. Minibar does have sokos... More

We were a company of 3 ladies & one doubleroom (1 extrabed). Room was made wheelchair compatible so it was very spacious. We had great night out, good sleep and basic but tasty breakfast (open up to 10.30 on sundays). I had booked the room with extraspecial discount so price vs. quality was truly excellent!

Member of Sokos Hotels chain, a typical one in good and bad. Rooms in the newer part are more spacious, and their colors are fresh compared to older rooms. Hotel is as all Sokos-Hotels: clean, effective, and personal is helpful. Breakfast was a standard one, no surprises in that area. Location in the center is good, and lots of nightlife... More

The best thing in this hotel is its central location. Ask for a room facing the inner courtyard. They would probably be the best choice if you want to sleep without waking up to a passing freight train at 5 a.m. I was unlucky to get a room on the eastern side of the hotel with an insufficient soundproofing.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay in our hotel. I´m sorry to hear the noise from outside has disturbed your sleep. As the hotel is located in the city centre, there is traffic around the hotel. Our rooms facing the inner courtyard are very popular amongst guests. They are the quietest rooms in the hotel, except Wednesdays, Fridays... More
