All the staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The room was well equipped with a well stocked mini bar and iron/ironing board. Decor was fresh and felt fairly new, although the room was generally very clean I was surprised to find a good layer of dust on a number of surfaces and fittings. The room had good views, with the hotel well located for central Tampere.
Breakfast was very good, with a wide selection and all of a high quality. There are a selection of restaurants within the hotel, although I only managed to try one, Armadillos is a TexMex style restaurant, the food was very good although service was extremely slow - over 2 hours for 2 courses, even though it was very quiet.
There is a very good and popular nightclub in the basement which is free entry for hotel guests.
A big disappointment was the restricted opening times for the swimming pool, it closed at 11am each day not reopening until the evening. I was travelling with friends who had young children, they were disappointed to only get one session in the pool due to it been closed for most of the day. I have not experienced this in any hotel before.
Overall a good hotel, with great staff in a good location. I will definitely stay again next time I visit Tampere.
