The hotel has a central position, 2 minutes walk from the bus station and the old town. The size of the room is correct and there is a courtesy tray. What is surprising for me, because the price is not cheap, is that the room is only cleaned once a week and you have to ask for it. There is... More

This place is excellent if you don't need any extreme luxury in your stay. Simple, clean, cheap, great location. Parking place downstairs. Absolutely no complaints what so ever but it is not the most romantic place ever. Price and quality are match made in heaven here.

I firstly want to say that I think very carefully before berating or criticising a business.I am not hot headed and consider the implications before I speak.But..... This hotel was nothing short of appalling.I appreciate that the cost of living in Finland is far higher than in the UK Nevertheless this hotel was about £100 a night. It is situated... More

We were attending a wedding in Porvoo and required a room. Even though rooms had been set aside for guest, the hotel had no knowledge of the rate and no no knowledge of the reservations. The WiFi did not work at first. Assistance at the desk was poor. Finally able to get the WiFi to work. Parking was another special... More

The location is very good - the hotel is in the center of the town and a few minute's walk from the Old Town and the Cathedral of Porvoo. Many shops and restaurants very close. The room was functional, and the bathroom/shower was good. The hotel was apparently slightly understaffed, with only one person handling both the reception and the... More

The hotel is right next to the bus station, so the location is very convenient. The beautiful old town is a small walk away. There is a restarurant/bar across the street and there are excellent restaurants within walking distance. The room had sticky floors and the bathroom hadn't been cleaned very well. Breakfast is very basic. The hotel's decor is... More

It was a pleasant weekend stay at a nice small hotel in Porvoo. The room was clean and bright and everything worth every penny. The hotel location is 10 mins of lazy walk to the old town. Staff very friendly and helpful. If to pick at, the room was 'pretty cool' at night - around 22 C, late October, with... More

Only one night on a business trip, with minimal use of facilities. The room was spacious and had everything required. Comfy bed and not too hot. The bathroom was a little tired, but the shower was terrific. I don't like the current fad with soap/shower dispensers stuck to the wall; just too institutional. Front desk staff were friendly and informative.... More

Rooms look to have been redecorated recently and our room was very nice, good bathroom, comfy double bed. 2 mins walk from the old town and bus station and en route from the ferry stop to the old town. No complaints at all, and Porvoo is definitely worth an overnight stay. Eat or drink at Johans which was very welcoming.
