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.

All that you need for a standard stay. Location great for visiting centre. Parking easy in close by garage. Service good with nice attitude even for the smallest guests. Standard room fits for 2+2. Room was a bit run down with minor issues with cleaning. All in all, ok and could stay again and can recommend for basic accommodation.

The hotel is located right opposite the railway station and two blocks away from precinct where all the shops and restaurants are located. There's a limited space to park your car but they have a great deal with Asema Parking with discount to hotel guests.
