I understood now what they mean by Original: Old and a little bit worned out rooms at least one part of the hotel. But never mind, my economy room was enough for one night during work trip. AC did not work, but it was luxury to open the window and keep it open all night long. The traffic was not... More

Dear Tuula27, Thank you very much for your feedback and kind words regarding our service and the people behind it. To us, that is the "Original" - people trying to do their best to make our guests feel at home and happy with us. Our economy rooms may be already a little bit worn out, but we try to make... More

The hotel is right at downtown Jyvaskyla, this facilitates the dinner and locomotion around town, the rooms are ok, I stayed at the old building so the room can have some renovation but is really clean and well maintained. The only issue I found I was traveling with some colleagues and we all get the same rate but different rooms,... More

The price and the quality of the accomodation did not meet. I had a worn out room in the older part of the hotel. The bathroom had broken lamp, broken bin and broken toilet seat. Overpriced parking. Breakfast was ok.

Dear Javor S, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to read that we could not live up to your expectations regarding value for money. It is true that our economy rooms may seem worn out, since thay are already fairly old. However, we try to ensure that everything is in working order and take care of the general... More

Friendly hotel with great location. Parking in town or in the hotel area. Rooms clean but in need of update, small old style Novotel like, Beds narrow but surprisingly comfortable. Amazing how small a bathroom can be and still work! Bar was fun and the breakfast quite extensive.

They really have a great location and service options. Hotel is in the center of the town, I had an amazing view of the lake Jyvaskyla. The breakfast was good. The service stuff, especially the cleaning team was great & cooperative.

A very good choice for a hotel. I spent one night there on a business trip in April. Very friendly service; I had accidentally ripped my coat tag and I immediately got an emergency sewing kit from the reception so I was able to repair the damage. Also excellent breakfast, hot milk and several kinds of proper brewed tea.

I stayed here for 1 night on a business trip to Jyväskylä. Price / quality ratio was a bit off for my taste since the hotel was not spectacular for the price. Parking cost extra and was hard to find. Breakfast was very limited. WiFi was very slow in the rooms had to use my 4G instead.

Hotel is in the center of the town. Some rooms might be noisy because they locate close to busy street. Reception was giving very good and friendly service. Standard rooms are medium size. Shower area was too small. Breakfast is tasty. Parking area is not enough big for this hotel.

I was staying over one night in this hotel, plus supervising a meeting there. The meeting room we got, was little bit old-fashioned, but still I could say that absolutely worth of the price. And the stuff organised everything very well being helpful. The room I had was spacious, but little bit shabby. But I absolutely loved the bed that... More

I stayed here for two very comfortable nights. The room was spacious and clean and very comfortable. I didn't get a chance to us the sauna but the breakfast was VERY good. Hotel staff were extremely helpful. The location was very convenient. Even though I had a room facing thetrain station it was very quiet.
