This Sokos hotel is located in Kokkola city centre and a short walk from the railway station. The hotel staff is very helpfull and attentive, but the hotel rooms are quite old and the bathroom reminds me of a 1980 ferry ship bathroom. The hotel rooms should be renovated immediately, they are not Sokos standard (compared to other Sokos hotels... More

This is an ordinary Sokos hotel, that needs renovation. Nothing bad to say, but also nothing that makes me surely coming back. Rooms are small and renovation is needed. It seems that hotel itself has been renovated, but at least some of the rooms are rather old. Location in the middle of the Kokkola and free parking are the best... More

The hotel is quite average for most things. Rooms are basic and quite standard, friendly staff, breakfast good with a standard Nordic selection. The bar in the hotel is very nice and has good atmosphere. Location is very good, airport bus stops exactly outside the hotel door, short walk to most shops and central locations. Service was good. No complaints.

Pleasant enough hotel central for Kokkola. Only stayed one night so not possible to give a full review. I was disappointed that there were no facilities to make a cup of tea or coffee in the room. Breakfast was basic but OK. Staff were all very friendly.

This is always my first choice hotel when I stay in Kokkola. From the moment I walk through the doors I feel like I'm coming home. The check in feels very personal and welcoming, the rooms and communal areas are really nicely decorated and it is always spotless. Breakfast is great (if you like picked fish - I do) and... More

Stayed very briefly, but it was top notch. Great staff, which was very helpful and courteous in every way. The location was more than perfect, just a stone throw away from all the interesting areas of town The rooms were more that comfortable, and the breakfast was well above par! A very enjoyable experience!

One of the smallest rooms in western europe but the restaurant had an entrecote worth the price! Swift service at the front desk. The staff spoke swedish and english both at the front desk and in the restaurant

We've spent several nights in this hotel in several occassions. Location is good, price is average (by Finnish standards), some of the rooms are good, some are really bad. I'd recommend superior rooms over standard if you're light sleeper though. Superior rooms are on the quieter side of the hotel, please try to avoid the rooms facing the market square... More

Sokos hotels in Finland offer predictable experience. Hotel Kaarle fits well into the crowd, but offer some extra comfort compared to others. We visited Kokkola over weekend and stayed at Kaarle for one night. The room was very comfortable and clean and had quite good selection accessories. Service in the hotel is very friendly but also efficient. The staff greeted... More
