Stayed here for one night whilst travelling through Tampere. Stayed in the piano-suite which was basically one large room. The sauna was nice although the bathroom design was nothing spectacular.
Also, the breakfast buffet was ok, but nothing extraordinary. For the price that we paid (EUR160) I would have expected something a bit more.
However, if you are looking for somewhere different to stay the Hotel Urku is a good option, and fairly close to Tampere if you have your own car.
A secret tip for Tampere: the Restaurant Hella & Huone does excellent menus. A real treat!
