4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

When arriving at the hotel my hopes were not very high as it looks average at best from the outside. The lobby however was ok and for once the room was even better! I was told that the hotel had been refurbished and it showed in the room with the modern, clean look. Bed was very comfortable and street noise wasn't too bad. Location is ideal especially if arriving by train. City center is very close too. Breakfast was perfectly fine but nothing special. Overall a pleasant surprise with excellent value. Recommended!

It's' wonderful hotel . Very well situated , well situated very close to the center of the city! Everything is very clean! Sauna and swimming pool are great for aquaerobic as though very cute! staff is very polite and makes holiday unforgettable. I arrived very late to the hotel and before just asked via email if there are enough of parking places, they didn't answer but when I arrived I found out that they reserved parking place for me for the all time I stay here! It was very cute and nice! Free internet in the hotel. Breakfast - European with lots of different dishes. there are plenty to choose from. In general - I advise - Come and you won't regret it!

Room Tip: All almost the same

Victoria is a good solid hotel; all the necessities, no frills. Rooms, bathrooms and beds were good. Breakfast buffet was excellent, and restaurant room quite spacious. Sauna and pool were nice and in good shape. WiFi worked!

There's no frills, but that's probably exactly why Victoria is so good. Everything is clean, even the sauna/swimming pool (which has a distinct 70s design, but still feels spanking new, except the nice IKI stove in the sauna which gives off great steam). Good breakfast, nice central location and a winning price/quality ratio. To top it off, service is VERY friendly, there's a definite "old Finland" feeling to how this place functions so well. Beats any faceless international chain.

Room Tip: Ask a for an east-facing room, preferably fifth or sixth floor.

Good location in the heart of Tampere. Very friendly staff. Rooms are a bit small but they have everything you could need for few nights. Bed was very comfortable! Best bit by far was the breakfast, amazing value and it had just about everything you could think of from hot items to fruit and waffles. Also sauna and small indoor swimming pool was a nice touch.
