Charming old hotel with helpful staff who recommended us some places to go and what to do in Kemi. All furnitures and the lift looked as if they were at least 60 years old but maintained and cleaned well and I really liked them. Only downside is that we had to pay 10 euros to watch even standard TV channels... More

Stayed here for 1 night as part of a work/holiday trip to Finland/Sweden border towns. Merihovi is a historic hotel but rooms are dated and a bit tired. That being the case however it was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Check in was fast and professional. We had an early flight so we missed the buffet... More

Hotel is old but nicely decorated. We got nice room with own sauna from top floor. Breakfast fast Finnish style and good one. Staff really friendly. Location is more and less middle of the city which is not big really

At the first look the hotel looked a bit out of date and shaggy, but actually it was just well kept in it's old style. It was a bit weird - it felt like stepping into an old movie, only it was in color and not in black and white as you would've expected :) We had a room with... More

Winter in Kemi is a worthful challenge. Not to be missed. With my friends I stayed here several years. Perfect breakfast and fine international restaurants. Snow and ice make it complete for a wonderful itineray.

Interesting to experience a standstill in history. By visiting this only one of two hotels in the City of KEMI in North Finland. Incredible bad heat and sound insulation. Worn out furniture, no air ventilation exept rather notable natural leakage and no Air Condition. Small rooms and a bathroom which you have to climb into. Very simple breakfast but friendly... More

The hotel is nicely located and has the atmosphere of the past, which in this case is a charming matter. The staff both at the reception, cleaning and breakfast are very attentive and go for an extra mile for you. The room was quite worn out and the bathroom very small to use. No amenities available in the room, only... More

In this part of the world, time moves slower than rest... Choose bussiness floor room, but one can imagine been less than average. Don't seek here luxury, other than a sheltered bed in blizzard winter. Otherwise is cozy, old equipment still fitted but all functional, with basic breakfast facilities at first floor and a more excuisite restaurant for dinner located... More

I stayed at Merihovi for two nights at mid November 2014. The hotel was better than what I was prepared myself for. OK, a bit wear and tear somewhere, but nice and clean rooms, very friendly and service minded staff (in reception and restaurants) and stylish (although old fashioned) appearance. Helpful staff at reception - no problem arriving early and... More

Stayed here for 1 night stop-over on our way south. Arriving late - the staff in the reception gave us very good service. The hotels exterior is a little bit dated - but our room, 509, looked new and was spacious and clean. The bathroom was small - the bathtub is TINY! Free Wifi in all rooms. The hotel is... More
