All the way from booking by phone til arriving to the hotel the customer service was excellent. The price per night (83€) was reasonable especially because the room included an own sauna. I do a lot business and leisure travelling with the family, and will for sure recommend this hotel for everybody who respects good breakfast, easy arriving and very... More

Nice location! Very nice breakfast! BUT After seeing room 3037 in this hotel I now realize what the new Sokos Hotels brand "Original" means - hmmm. Also: have not experienced a hotel room without a window to outside before. Stockholm ferries have this kind of tiny inside windows in their cabins, but a hotel room is a bit different, to... More

Nice, clean hotel. Clean, comfort and quiet rooms. Very comfortable bed. Clean bathroom. Central location, only few hundred meters from railway station and from main shopping street. Great breakfast. Two restaurants and a pub downstairs. Would stay again.

Two places to eat at downstairs, one is more of a pub and served pub grub (eg everything fried) and the other was more traditional, well I say traditional but it seemed to serve French food which nevertheless was tasty and a good variety of vegetarian food. Not sure about the location of this hotel as it was my first... More

Well sized rooms even for the basic rooms. Very clean. Comfy bed. Great breakfast. Centrally located. Some people have obviously had problems with air conditioning, we stayed in noveber so it was not an issue then. Would visit again if need be.

Three night stay here and really enjoyed the breakfast buffet. Ate in the on site gastropub one night, and though they misunderstood the dish i was ordering the dish that arrived was fine and as i can't even attempt more than 'Hello' and 'Thank you' in Finnish I wasn't too upset that the order was wrong. The room was clean... More

I visited Jyvaskyla on business for a few days in late October '13. The hotel was cosy, I liked the decoration of the restaurant, as well as the smiling faces of the staff. The breakfast was very modest, but the dinner at the hotel was excellent!!! Very good price, very good value for your money!

Sokos hotel, which rooms must be updated. Room very small and no air conditioning. Room wasn't so clean, dust here and there. Also bathroom wasn't so clean. Mirror frames and behind the mirror full of dust. Big round window between the bathroom and the room. Room was beside the elevator, so you can hear elevator going up and down. When... More

Service was good, location excellent. Breakfast was a bit over average. However, the room was so worn out and had some problems that average is the best that can be given as a total score for he hotel.
