Spent a weekend in this nicely renovated hotel in a Supreme room. The room is spacious and comfortable, only minus is the Ikea stylish sofa which doesn't belong to this beautiful and old hotel. Excellent service at the reception and restaurant but still I think it's overpriced. Anyway nice hotel.

This is a retro style and really cool hotel. It seems that they kept all the old style stuff when they modernized the hotel. The standard room I had was not that large, but enough for one person, one night. Only small thing was that there was an fountain on the small square outside my room... No real problems but... More

Although part of a hotel chain (Sokos) this is really unique. Old time, beautifully renovated, friendly service, perfect place in the middle of Tampere. The breakfast room takes your breath away. But...book well in advance.

The interior design of this place is great. But the room I had was very simple, and I was not very impressed. I kind of hoped that some of the quirky design from the reception and the hallways would be repeated in the room but it wasn't. Location is great, service very good, breakfast was delicious. But I guess since... More

Dear lizade, thank you for staying at Solo Sokos Hotel Tammer. I'm sorry to hear you were a bit disappointed for your room. We have 87 rooms at our hotel and every one of them is different.

We stayed one night in this beautiful, historical hotel, and felt very welcome at the reception. We were impressed by the atmosphere of the hotel, and had high expectations for the room. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed. We had reserved a bit better room, since our stay was so short. The Gagarin Suite, however, looked very scruffy. The colours were... More

We visited Tampere and stayed in Solo Sokos Hotel Tammer, which has been renovated lately. The hotel is full of "old time spirit". After all it is the third oldest hotel in Finland having long history. The room of superior level was nice but still lacking air conditioning, which could be usable in Finland this summer. So we needed to... More
