We enjoyed our white Christmas in this centrally located hotel opposite a river. They did Christmas well for the children - santa, ginger bread making, tree decorating. Our daughter received a little gift from the hotel and a cute stuffed reindeer toy from santa who arrived on a reindeer sleigh. We borrowed sleds and had great fun in the snow.... More

We stayed here in December 2008, had a comfortable stay but wasn't to keen on the food on offer. Luckily our five day package was jam packed with activities seeing Santa etc... Rooms were great, warm and cosy and comfortable just what was needed after a busy day out in the snow.

We stayed at a room in an annex, only accessible through a tunnel from the reception building. Uneccessary long walk. Old outdated annex with very poor ventilation. We woke up sweaty with dry eyes and sore throat. Cleaning is not good. Big hairball in shower at our arrival. It grew bigger and wan't removed by cleaning personnel during our stay.... More

We were here for three nights during Midsummer. The hotel is in a nice location close to the beach/bonfire area. Also very close to dining and shopping, etc. The airport bus will take you right there. Rooms were clean and basic, but comfortable enough.The staff was helpful and the breakfast was good. The only thing was that there are two... More

I stayed here for a week in 2012 and while the hotel is a little dated (antlers on the room fixtures) it was comfortable and warm. The breakfast was good and the best part was the sauna and the pool. I had a view of the carpark which I was disappointed in. However, it was comfortable and an easy base... More

Dear Adolf H, Thank you for staying with us and writing us a review. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed the river view from your room. We apologize that the room itself didn’t meet your expectations and the receptionist gave you wrong information about the carpet. We don’t have floor mats in any of our rooms, but some rooms... More

I had hoped to stay at either the City hotel or the Santa Claus, but they were both fully booked during my stay, so I opted for one of the legendary and historical hotels in Finland, Pohjanhovi. I was not disappointed. The hotel is located next to the Jatkankynttila bridge in the city centre. Some of the rooms have great... More

Stayed with a group for six nights. The hotel has an excellent location, very close to the town center, right on the river. Rooms were clean and decent, definitely comfortable. Heating was OK. Used the sauna regularly, great place with the pool attached to it. The hotel is mostly used by groups, which might be a nuisance sometimes. Food was... More

The location of the hotel is very centeral. Beautiful view of the river. Has it's own nightclub as well as the center of winter equipment rental for all winter activities. Nice rooms and good food. Ask if the room is equiped with a closed shower and not a plastic sheet...
