“Central location, nice service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

I've stayed in this hotel several times both on business trips and during holidays.
Jyväshovi is a very basic hotel - the location being its best feature. The hotel is situated right at the centre of Jyväskylä and can be easily reached also by car (there are plenty of parking spaces in a parking house). The service was very friendly and we managed to get a room from the 6th floor which was nice on Saturday evening while there is a dancing restaurant on the 2nd floor. Our room was clean and commodious. The breakfast was diverse. So all in all, again, I was quite pleased with my stay and will come back again.

I liked the room and the services. Good breakfast with lot of vegetables and fruits. The Hotel is in center of Jyväskylä so it is easy to walk around. No long distances to shopping centres. Because of the rain I did not went to see the view from Laajavuori. Next time.

Room Tip: My room was on sixth floor and very quiet. I did not use the fitness centre this time and no childre...

We stayed one night in Jyväskylä on our way to Kuopio. The room was okay .It was on the third floor and it was Friday evening and the dancing restaurant was on the second floor. The noise from the restaurant came to our room but not the band noise but the noise when band finished and they started to play records and then it was hard to sleep. The bathroom was in need of good cleaning, especially tiles and floor. Breakfast was good although the space was a bit mixed.

The staff was very friendly and also our room got upgraded from standard to superior when checking in (though I'd imagine this is quite common). The person checking us in also indicated that our room in 4th floor shouldn't get that much noise from the 2nd floor dance bar and if there was any problems then just let them know. I think only the bands soundcheck in the early evening and some bass noises during the night were heard but not anything really disturbing. I'd expect the 3rd floor rooms have much more noise and the rooms closer to the staircase as it is such an open space. Also our corridor was very quiet without any disturbance heard from other visitors. The breakfast was okay and not too crowded and the location of the hotel is perfect for city visit. Only minus from our part would be the difficulties to actually finding the hotel and the parking slot where we parked..

All in all, I'd stay another weekend in this hotel if I need to visit Jyväskylä again.

Room Tip: I'd advice to take a room above the 4th floor during the weekends because of the dancing restaur...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Good location in the very city centre, and a short walk to all the main points of interest as well as to the main campus of the university. Friendly and professional staff.

The size of the rooms varies, our room was one of the spacious ones with a large bathroom. A little bit worn furniture, but overall spotlessly clean in every aspect. Bed was comfortable and couple of different pillows were available.

Breakfast buffet with a good selection of different delicasies from local producers.

Our room was with courtyard wiew and therefore quite noisy during late evening live music sessions at the hotel bar. So there was not actually any possibility to sleep untill the show was over.

Jyväshovi is nicely situated hotel, in the very center of Jyväskylä. But it is nor for the location that we visit it frequently. The friendly staff makes us feel wellcome. Our needs are taken care of. Even if we have to leave too early to enjoy their tast breakfast they'll provide us something to take us on our way. Warmly recommended!
