Basic Sokos Hotel (like Ibis or Novotel) with good location. It has two restarants, sauna and nide lobby. Reseption staff was really friendly. Train stadion is just across the street. Ask room from the new side.

Excercising, tub (jacuzzi), good food, few pint with friends...relaxing time in a good hotel with great location in the heart of Jyvaskyla. Sauna area was new and clean, and there was plenty of room. Hotel room was renewed recently and it was cozy.

Sorry to say but I was a bit disapointed. The hotel seems nive but my room was located in a seperate wing that didn't have "road signs" to help you find your way. When I visited the hotel there was a big union meeting in town so all the hotels were full. It seemed like my room was cleaned in... More

I spent one day at the SH Alexandra and I must say that the overall experience was ok, but with a few problems that reduced the overall appreciation of the hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable but they should go through a drastic renovation since the furnitures are quite old and the desk, as an example, is very little.... More

The location is very good, specially if you arrive to Jyväskylä by train (like I did). Only few steps from the station. There is also a short distance to the city center and walking streets. At the reception all the receptionists were very kind and friendly. The chec-in and chec-out was very efficient. I had a newly renovated double room,... More

This place has been there for ages, and you can see that from some of the rooms. Dont take economy rooms, they are really like 25 yrs. Old. Very nice people at the reception. Always happy, and making you feel most welcoming. Great breakfast, waiters are gathering loose dishes from tables very fast. This place is situated nicely, close to... More

We stayed for one night with one kid. Friendly staff and good location in the city. Parking available in the back of the hotel. Good size room and a nice breakfast. Our son loved the kids playroom. The morning sauna was really nice.
