“Good visit, do not worry the location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We traveled with 2 teenagers, and booked a family room. This was good solution because we got 2 rooms with a connecting door. Rooms were clean, modern and quiet. Even air conditioning was working well (which is not self-evident in Finland). Breakfast was standard but in a good manner. Hotel staff was polite and helpful. The hotel is located in university hospital area that might sound a bit weird, but it was not a problem for us. This is a normal hotel, not part of the hospital.
With car it takes 5 to 10 minutes to get to Tampere center or to Särkänniemi amusement park.

The Norlandia Care hotel is located on the outskirts of Tampere.There is an excellent bus service, which is just a short walk from the hotel, and the majority of buses go into the city centre. The bus costs 2.60 euro. The hotel is a little unusual as it is part of a hospital however I found it very comfortable and the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Breakfast was basic but more than sufficient. Dinner is available in the hotel and there is a good value dinner buffet (15 euro) available in the early evening. I found the room comfortable and quiet. I would recommend this hotel if you are visiting Tampere. Just a tip if you are arriving at Tampere airport, you will need to take a taxi into the city, which costs in the region of 50 euro.

Traveled in business, and for that this hotel was excellent. The location is not optimal for someone discovering Tampere as a city, unless wanting to take a cab to the city center or having your own car. Easy to get parking for your car. Breakfast was good, rooms spacious and clean.

Norlandia Care hotel Tambere is directly connected to the local hospital. You feel a bit strange when you exit the elevator and one side leads to your room and the other to some clinic. Sometimes you share the hotel restaurant with patients of the hospital which is not very enjoyable. In the other side the rooms are very comfortable very clean, the breakfast is OK , although the restaurant space is rather small. The hotel is 10 min drive from downtown but driving there is quite easy and straight forward. During the weekend parking is free either wise you need to pay which is unexpected for a location far away from the city center.

This hotel lies a bit on the outskirts of Tampere, so you would actually need a car between the city and the hotel. Still, the hotel does provide only a small number of parking spaces, I was just lucky to get one. The building is some kind of rehab centre and the hotel is integrated in the top floors and works just like a usual hotel. The staff is friendly but keeps a professional distance.

The rooms are not too large, the bathroom is suitable for disabled people. The light in the bathroom is activated by movement, but lasts far too long: some 30 minutes after the last movement detected. Of course there is a sauna nicely situated on the top floor, which can be used at no further cost.

Everything is clean, well maintained. The breakfast offers a medium choice, which is okay, but could be better.

The hotel is definitely worth of recommending!
New, clean and quiet. We came by car so I can't commend anything about the public transportation but I think the connections are good as the hotel is just next to the Tampere university hospital. The staff is very friendly and rooms are extremely clean. I especially liked the room that had a high ceiling which gives you a feeling of space although the rooms otherwise were not too big (but either too small, average I would say). A big plus for the cleanliness and for the new rooms (not worn out at all). The breakfast is good, maybe a bit crowded place with families but can't complain. Enough to eat although nothing too fancy but very good breakfast in general. We parked the car next to the hotel for free, I think you got a coupon or something that you can park for free. No problems with the car either. Definitely I recommend!

I booked this hotel thinking what have I done by staying in a hospital complex. Even though it is connected to the hospital, it was separate once you are there. It was less than a year old, and the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in with decoration in Nordic modern decor. It even came with a buffet breakfast. Not a lot of choices but plenty to eat and again very clean. Because we stayed on a Friday night there was plenty of free parking. The hotel was not very busy and if you overlook this hotel because of the connection with the hospital you are missing a fantastic hotel, The worst part was trying to find it even with mapquest. Once in the hospital complex, it was in the back. It is worth the trouble.

Room Tip: It won't matter which room you get, they all seemed to be the same.
