We have a very good time during our stay. The room was big and warm. The hot water was fantastic. The staffs are so friendly and breakfast was very nice. The location is really good, only a few minutes drive to the town centre and walking distance to the train station. Would defiantly come back!

You are not running out of money when overnighting in this cosy and simple guesthouse, near railway and bus stations. Location is very good, just a few minutes walk ( or maybe even 30 minutes if you are not a healthy walker) from city centre. This place is cheap, cosy and neat, very good value if you are not after... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay at the Borealis. Clean, comfortable, quite. Good breakfasts (sadly no porridge), very convenient kitchen. We booked a triple to get extra room, and it was worth it. As we were catching the 7:10 train the morning we left, the person on duty kindly made us up a breakfast the night before. We certainly recommend... More

It has great location within walking distance from railway station (10 minutes) and bus station (15 minutes) although it is a little far from city centre (30 minutes on foot). We lived in a twin room that is clean, tidy and warm. Breakfast is standard. Kitchen is clean and tidy. Price is great too compared to other hotels and hostels... More

We stayed in the appartment for 4-6 people, with sauna and private entrance. There are 4 single beds and 1 sofabed - in one large room (no inside doors), which was ok for us - if you need more privacy, you might want to make another choice. . There is a large living room/ kitchen with sufficient space. The kitchen... More
