My preference for Tampere business hotel. Nice salmon and pickled herring addition to British full breskfast selection. Upper floor sauna club is best facility in city. Close to train station and bus routes. City shopping is short walk.

Only 10. Min walk from station but that means 20 mins walk from central shops etc. Minor complaint, however. Breakfast busy at 8am but very quiet 20 mins later. Smallish but comfortable room. Would stay again

Decent hotel rooms, though a bit tight for space as usual in Scandanavia. Breakast is pretty good - good selection of fruit and cereal - with a reasonable fry-up - and the standard Scandanavian fish and vegetables.
Close to town centre and train station. And has quite good restaurants close by.

Not a lot to do though - no gym. Has a sauna....only been the once.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the backside. The road is quite noisy on the front.

I'd start off by staying the front desk is where a lot of people decide if they like a hotel or not, The staff treated me and my colleagues with such care and attention that I wondered can they possibly treat everyone like this? After receiving my room card and free wifi code I handed over my priority club card and it was like another level of service occurred as if that was possible, we where handed some vouchers for the mini bar (which I forgot to use) but you get the picture, we also told them we would be leaving early prior to breakfast and was told they'll have something for us which happens from time to time (bread and tea). Anyway the room was quite cozy, bed comfortable and pillow option just like a Holiday Inn is supposed to have, leaving the hotel the next morning I was shocked to see a FULL breakfast spead waiting for us..... It was 4:30am Keep it up!

i stayed at the holiday inn tampere in september 2012 for a conference at the university of tampere, it turned out to be the perfect choice as it was only a few hundred meters to the university. all the main amenities for a business traveler was there, free wi-fi, business desk, comfortable room, coffee/tea facilities. dinner at the hotel was also more than satisfactory- no need to get out to look for decent food, the railway station was just behind the hotel making transportation in and out of tampere very easy. breakfast was ok. the bed had four different pillow options which was an interesting touch.

I stayed in this hotel for one night because of a business trip. My single room in second floor faced inner yard so no street noise at all. The bed was very comfortable with different pillow options, the room had everything I needed for a decend stay. The breakfast was better than an average hotel breakfast, and the service in the reception was fast during both check-in and check-out. Some minor negative things that I noticed were a bad tv-signal in my room - basically there was no functioning tv because of the bad signal (not an issue for me because I had no time to watch tv but certainly a problem for many) and the service during evening dinner (not very warm, and also slow and the waitress made mistakes in the bill - the food was great). Without these two issues I would have given rating 5.

To keep things in perspective, this is a business hotel and it is not fancy, but value for money, we were very comfortable here. Enjoyed having a private sauna in our (executive) room and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast buffet has nice variety and seating in the atrium is cheerful and pleasant. Staff were very friendly and responsive to all our needs. Would recommend and stay here again. Walkable from the train station.
