We were visiting our friends in the Taipalsaari region in July and they suggested to visit Hotel Saimaanranta for a play and swim on the beach and a meal in the restaurant. We took our kids, including a 4months old baby and enjoyed our time on the beach. After about an hour, a black car approached and out stepped a... More

Quite sympathetic place amidst the forests and lakes is located on the lakeshore of Saimaa in southern region of Finland not very far from russian border. The last one was our key reason to choose this place and it is good transit point on your way north. Despite the short stay we liked it here: pretty comfortable clean rooms, polite... More

Beautiful nature - pine trees, lake. A room in the style of a country house. Grilled sausages on the grill, all the facilities for this, just need to bring coals to take because the wood cost 10eur for a small box.

We stayed in this hotel several times 15 years ago. It was standard Finnish hotel with good location on the coast of Saima. The hotel had finnish service of standard level. Now the nature and the lake are still wonderfull but service became Russian. If you know that it means, you will understand it. In other case the explanation will... More

Since staying in tens of different hotels in tens of different countries this was my worst experience to date. Let's start from positive: - Obviously best thing was that we got our money back from the advance booking! - Location is wonderful, the nature around the hotel is very lovely. - The price would've been reasonable considering the season and...

Do not visit this "hotel" unless you want to have a touch of 70s again.. Our room smelled like someone just have smoked. Furnitures and textiles were shabby. The reception was not open like said on the hotel pages. The price of our room was a mystery until we left, although we tried to ask it. The breakfast was worst... More
