This place offers privacy and silence. Hotel is located just across the Ähtäri Zoo, beside a pine forest. When i visited there with my family, atmosphere was peaceful and comfortable. Hotel had a small spa. Childrens nursing room was modest. Easiest choice to get there is a rental car or take a local bus. Notice: some of the rooms are... More

The architecture of the hotel is really interesting and cool with all the rock walls and a cave-like feeling. The rooms were good, especially the ones that are renovated. The facilities are fine, but the wi-fi doesn't work in the rooms which is a bit of a minus. Restaurant of the hotel serves basic food with some local foods. Location... More

They only keep the hotel, they have done any repairs or changes to modernise the hotel or surroundings. The only good thing is the nearby zoo. In the restaurant the staff was quite unvilling to arrange bigger table for our group, so we had to ask them to move a small table to get enough place for all. The best... More

If you are visiting Ähtäri Zoo then this hotel has the best location, it's right across the street from the zoo. Otherwise this hotel is quite far from anything. Our room was on the old side of the hotel (furthest corner from the reception), and it was really vintage with brown furry carpets and worn out wallpapers. Our room also... More

The hotel has neat features, such as rock walls and great balconies. The restaurant food is absolutely the best. The rooms are old and just OK, but since the hotel is directly across from the zoo, I can forgive this. The Wi-Fi did not work, which is a must no days. The views are fantastic of the lake and there... More

First of all this is not Scandic hotel. Hotel arcitecture is very intresting and nice. There is not any kind of A/C or fan in the rooms. Nice view from the balcony to the lake. Hotel need some renovation... Because the hotel is near Ähtäri animalpark there is mostly families with parasites, so, not so romantic getaway...

The hotel itself is interesting with rocky walls. Rooms are average, but the restaurant is excellent. The service is always first class, waitress are extremely friendly, great with kids and food is very good. Swimming pool is ok, kids just love it.

We chose this hotel because it's right next to the zoo. This is in fact the only good thing about the hotel. The rooms were awful, I don't think they've ever been renovated. We took the "superior room" for 135 euros, but it was far from superior. The food (dinner, breakfast) was decent. I would recommend taking some nearby B&B... More

Whatever time of year you take a break in Ähtäri, you will go away with fantastic memories. The location is wonderful for snowmobiling, walking, enjoying nature, driving small 4x4, cross country skiing, fishing, hiring bicycles and, of course,visiting the native animals of Finland at the wildlife park. Scandic Mesikämmen is a great spa hotel serving excellent nordic cuisine. You will... More
