After arriving at the train station in Tampere, only a few minutes walk are required to reach Sokos Hotel Villa. From the outside (and from the inside) it is immediately clear: This is no villa. Actually, this is an old warehouse, transformed into a business hotel. No strings attached. Clean, efficient, straightforward. No mess. Friendly and professional staff, decent buffet breakfast - but not much else. For a few nights this is a good choice, well located and modern. But why does Sokos not provide a kettle and tea/coffee in the rooms? Why are rooms in the 6th floor so cramped? Why do all sorts of bread at breakfast taste the same? Maybe it is the business philosophy of Sokos that guest have to adapt to Sokos, not the other way round.
