This is a nice hotel in the centre of town. It has a good selection of restaurants, which are not bad for a hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with simple contemporary styling. Decent views from the upper floors

I loved the reception staff, they were welcoming and tried to accommodate us as fast as possible. We were early and only one couple got their room, but it didn't take too long to get the second one too. The room itself was clean and well-furnished, I loved the high view to the city (we were on the 10th floor).... More

When visiting Tampere, we always stay in Ilves. Great location middle of Tampere, welcoming atmosphere and clean rooms are best of it.

Stuff it usually helpful and friendly, and breakfast is super. The... More

I stayed in one of the basic rooms the hotel has. It was nice and modern, nothing to complain about. Breakfast was a nice sum of everything you need to get your day started. Overally nice hotel within a walking distance to every key points in Tampere.
