This ceramic tile box contains smallish flavorless rooms with non opening windows and a tasteless restaurant. Everything is as average as possible, Basically there is nothing wrong nor badly, but the spirit is missing. Personnel is helpful and most friendly, though we didn't find us as Scandic members. Where do you need a profile if it is not followed. Breakfast... More

The hotel restaurant was actually a positive surprise. Eventhough the service was a bit slow, the taste and quality of the food was good. Service was also friendly. TV picture quality in the room was actually very good compared to normal hotel room TVs which tend to be utter garbage. You could also fit a bottle of sparkling wine in... More

I stayed in the hotel with my wife in a junior suite (with a sauna). A junior suite is essentially two normal rooms combined, still having two bathrooms and two outside doors. The room was clean and quiet, but had overall very cold and odd feeling to it. Furniture was simplistic and didn’t seem to fit the room too well,... More

I stayed in Scandic Lahti last winter and I have to say I was disappointed with it. Price was kind of high and quality wasn't that high even though breakfast was excellent and suite had a nice sauna. Pool area was ok but pool could have been a bit bigger in my opinion. And the water was pretty cold. So,... More

This is a typical Scandic hotel, which is a little bit old fashioned and worn out. The layout and furniture are like from the "old good times", some 30 years ago. The location is good: next to the train station. The service and staff are very good. I can recommend this hotel for business overnight.

I like that you can check out from internet and customer service at the hotel was nice. However, the restaurant isn't the best possible. Breakfast is OK and I think that this hotel has good price-quality -rate.

Location: next to train station, which is good, but a bit further from city center. Rooms are big enough, bathroom is very big. But: much too warm and no possibilities to cool or open window. Breakfast is OK. You can use 2 bicycles for free. Service and hospitality are good. Swimming pool is small but sufficient.

I come to Lahti for business reasons several times a year for more than 20 years, and with a very few exceptions I choose Scandic Lahti (formerly Salpaus) for my stay. The location is very convenient, close to the railway station and a short walk to the main street Aleksanterinkatu. Good breakfast with a broad choice of food and helpful... More
