Good quality hotel. Room service work great with somehow reasonable prices. Very narrow parking spots for normal cars, be carefully there avoid scratches. Good service by staff. Good breakfast. Bit overmind security officers in bar doors. Too crowded bar during weekend.

As there were no standard rooms with double beds available at check inn, we were offered a superior room with a double bed for an... More

Hotel feels quite lux; rooms are recently renovated and the lobby is chic. Free fruit and friendly staff. Clean, quiet and comfy big beds. Location right downtown with shopping just round the corner. Nice view from fift floor. Nice pool! Parking was really tight in the garage.

Service at the reception was exceptional during the late night hours as some of our group experienced difficulties. The room quality was good and the breakfast was plenty. The location in the heart of Tampere is perfect.

I recently stayed at the Ilves for five nights and was very happy with the experience. I did not use many of their facilities, so I can't say anything about the sauna, the swimming pool (which looked nice from outside) and the restaurant. My (very reasonably-sized) room was on the 18th floor and the view over the city was a... More

Nice hotel in Tampere. Small rooms with good cleaning. Crappy breakfast. Breakfast did not include croissants and the selection what to eat was poor. Hotel spa is no spa. Small sauna and small swimming pool.
