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

The hotel is located just 300 mt. from Mikkeli's train station. The staff is fiendly although they charge "2 euros " if you ask for a dental set . It' s free of charge in the other Sokos. The furniture of the room is very old , especially the bathroom is very old and there is just soap in the... 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

The rooms were functional and almost modern. A funny curiosity was the balcony overlooking the inner courtyard, right above the Fransmanni restaurant. Not sure who would want to sit on the balcony inside the hotel? Only minus feature would be the disco sound and particularly the base that could be heard within the rooms until 4am. Not too disrupting to... More

What one really needs from a hotel is sleep, food, and no additional excitement. This one does the job well. The place has grown during the years and for picky people I would perhaps recommend mentioning you want the room from the new extension. For others I would suggest booking a quiet room to avoid unpleasant situation of being stuck... More

At arrival, we were told (threatened, actually) that the rooms booked by our travel agent were just above the "Club", so the music would have kept us awake during the night. We were suggested to take other and more expensive rooms. At their higher price (of course!) and without any discount!!! The hotel is big, in two buildings, and the... More

Thank you for your review of our hotel. Our economy rooms are situated above the nightclub, which is open Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, occasionally on Sundays. On those nights, you can hear music all the way up to these rooms. We inform every guest of this issue on arrival. I do apologise if you felt threatened by this, that was... More

We have been here several times - which must be a good sign. This hotel is another typical business traveller's hotel. Location is very central and you can come and go easily - just remember to pay parking of the car in advance to avoid getting unhappy while leaving. Breakfast is average and sometimes you need to wait a bit... More

This was really a great experience. Thank you all who made the perfect christmas happen. We couldn't have asked better price/quality ratio for the trip. Food and service was excellent. Parking in warm garage was reasonably priced. It was between -20C to -30C degrees outside so I really appreciated the garage option. A daytrip to Valamo monestary was included to... More
