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.

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.

When you arrive to the desk you'll see beautiful lobby and bar/restaurant. BUT when you take a elevator up to the third floor and step in to your room... :| The rooms are small and carpet needs serious cleaning. Tv is very small. Badroom is just ok. Needs update as well. Beds are ok and room is quiet. So you... More

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

Dear Mika L, Thank you for your feedback. I am truly sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your room - the signage and the level of cleaning to be specific. There is signage in place helping our guests to find their way to their room, but some rooms may in deed seem to be located quite far away... 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
