Stayed here for the bachelorette party for the weekend. The place was chosen because of it's beauty and historical value. There is the Emperor's Hall in the building, and overall the hotel looks like a castle. The best way to have a relaxing weekend is to have a room in the spa building. This way you will have saunas, swimming... More

I stayed at this hotel during a 2-week business trip. Beautiful architecture next to a forest and river. My room was in the spa building which was accessible by an underground tunnel, although there was a nice path above ground. It was located quite close to a supermarket and a small handful of restaurants. The town was quite small but... More

The hotel building is impressive and the surroundings unique. The spa is pretty ordinary: minuscule swimming pool and an average gym. The rooms are quite nice and pretty well looked after. The personnel is friendly - as I guess they should - but not very plentiful. There is a limit after which cutting down personnel is visible in the level... More

I booked my weekend in the Castle for my wedding anniversary in June four months beforehand, to enjoy the beautiful building and great athmosphere. The early booking was because I knew Castle-side of the hotel is in high demand due its speciality. Upon arrival, we were told that our room was on the spa side of the hotel, where we... More

I spent a night at the hotel right next to impressive natural beauty Vuoksenkoski waterfall. The location is impressive and it has rich history with famous visitor like Russian imperial family and the emperor of Brazil, just to name some. The hotel is only average though. Rooms are OK for overnight stay but not a great pleasure, mine was also... More

Amidst the snow the ambience and the atmosphere was electrifying. From my visit I started to sense the Father Christmas is in the vicinity. the hotel is made up of a castle which has a command over Imatra, especially in this time of the year. the ambience gave me a good sense of Christmas especially the pine trees freckled with...

Looking like a fairy-tale castle, this one was originally built as hotel early XXth century. The interiors are charmingly old: painted walls, wide staircases, and all the rooms have got windows of various shapes, overlooking the forest and the river. The rooms facilities are mostly basic (I would like to have a bigger wardrobe although it is not that crucial... More

This hotel is certainly a special place - you can't find another close to this anywhere in Finland. So if you have to spend few nights in Imatra this is most certainly the hotel to choose. The location between the city centre and the canal (Imatrankoski) is perfect and there's enough parking space in front of the hotel. An attached... More
