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.

This hotel is right opposite the railway station in this student town in the Lakes area of Finland. The rooms are quite big, no coffee making facilities, but good wifi (get a ticket from the reception). The restuarant was excellent, some really very good food indeed, imaginative use of local produce served up very well.The pub, with a very good... More

Located next to railway and bus stations but also having shopping centers close by hotel Alexandra is an easy spot to stay a day or two. The hotel had a nice children playroom and spacious restaurant, where the breakfast was served. The buffet type breakfast was ok too. The staff were friendly and helpful enough. The hotel didn't have free... More

The hotel is convenient to the railway station, shopping, conference center, and tourist attractions--accessible within an easy walk of under 20 minutes or less. For longer excursions, the hotel has bikes to lend. My spouse and I had an economy room--all that was available on a last-minute notice. But for "economy," the room exceeded our expectations-fairly roomy with two beds,... More

Hotel is close to the railway and busstation and if you enjoy shopping it has really a good location. There is sauna and jacuzzi. Because it is quite a big hotel was the breakfastroom quite oocupied. But anyhow a nice experience - you get what you expected.

Clean and comfortable hotel with great location - the railway station is just across the street and everything else is very near as well. The service was excellent and I enjoyed the breakfast. The interior design was a bit dated though the room had a bit more fresher look than the corridor.

Despite Jyväskylä being a charming, nice and beautiful place ... I cannot really say the same for this hotel. Old fashioned, small rooms (slept on 3rd floor) with no airconditioning. Arrived last Monday when 30°C and temperature close to 40°C in the rooms. Service and breakfast is OK, but when comparing to the new SOKOS Pavilionki across the railway bridge... More

Dear V_Dupont_BE, Thank you very much for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you did not feel comfortable with your room. It is true that some of our rooms do not have individual cooling system and the decor may seem old fashioned. However, keeping that in mind, we try to ensure the cleanliness of the rooms and premises... More

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
