Hotel is little bit old style hotel but there is excellent service. It is also in good location, in the centre of Mikkeli and aprox 500 meters from railway. Breakfast was good, there was good selection. Good for business trips.

It is a very nice hotel. The staff at the reception is very friendly and cooperative. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped. The bed was of a very good quality. I had a room with a balcony that overlooked the breakfast and dinning area. We had also a dinner in the hotel. The quality was good but I... More

This hotel is a typical representative of the Sokos Hotels chain. If you will stay there during a weekend, ask room from the new wing. There is also a night club and music (bass) can be heard in the rooms too well. I was difficult to fell asleep. Breakfast is the same almost in every Finnish hotel and Sokos Hotel... More

Very nice hotel, which looks very cozy. I really liked the room (I was staying in room 321), which was not like most hotels are (cold and tired). My room had nice placing of furniture (very functional) but it also felt like I am at home). Breakfast was good. Only issue was that my room had a night club two... More

I have to say the service and staff was excellent. Everybody was very welcoming and smiling (not so usual for Finland). But but but, why are all these hotels the same. 113 euros / night and you get a partially renovated room, half the room is from the 80s and the other half has seen some improvments here and there....

The hotel is in a good location, not far from the railway station and above Lake Saimaa. We had a room in the new wing which was quiet and comfortable. The room and bathroom were clean and the shower was excellent. Breakfast was great with local delicacies as well as normal fare. Mikkeli is an attractive town, and like all... More

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.
