Stayed at the Scandic Kuoppio in December 2014. Found check in fast with pleasant service. Hotel exterior is a little old fashioned but inside hotel newly refurbished and welcoming. Enjoyed drinks in bar area from friendly and attentive staff. Breakfast here is excellent with lots of choices and organic, gluten, lactose free options. Plenty of fresh fruit to start your day so don't miss out on this.

My room over looked the beautiful lake and was spacious with large chaise lounge, plenty of wardrobe space and comfortable bed. Recently renovated in modern typically scandi style. Bathroom small but modern and clean with excellent walk in shower with glass surround. As with most hotels in area no tea or coffee making facilities being British I missed this so bring a travel kettle if that's what you like. Rooms warm and cosy which was needed in the middle of the Finnish winter time.

Hotel situated slightly out of town centre and takes around 15 mins to walk to main town square. Although you do pass many bar shops and restaurants on the way, so places close by to eat. Whilst here we walked to the famous tower which at a steady pace takes around an hour and half and by the lake and neighbouring islands.

Good hotel so as central as most but would return if in area.
