The hotel is nice located only couple of hundred mtrs away from pedestrian street Rotuaari. Family deluxe rooma was spacious and with Scandic you have no problems having 3 kids in same room. Cleanliness was also good. Only the writing desk chair ( also in our later used family standard room) was not ok, it was rusty. Personnel at the... More

Stayed for a couple of nights. Modern hotel, clean & functional. The bed was good as was the room in general. My room was quiet and the ac not intrusive. The blackout blinds worked really well, essential in the summer here. Breakfast was ok, reasonable spread. It's handy for the town centre, just a few minutes walk. Staff were all... More

The room was spacious, bathroom likewise, with all the necessary amenities, the beds were comfortable, the sofa and armchair inviting. The air condition was perfect: across the width of the... More

Nice hotel with large family rooms which were fairly modern accommodating us five (parents, two kids & dog) effortlessly. The things that brought the review down from a four was the abysmal view that we had staring at the opposite building wall and the fact that the restaurant was closed on a Sunday.

Nice, spacious rooms. I was there only for one night with an early flight the next day and they were kind enough to pack some breakfast. No complementary bottled water offered though......there's a mini bar available

The hotel itself is fairly decent and the reception personnel are usually very friendly as I have traveled here quite frequently for the last few years now so I know most of them by now. It feels like there have been some changes in the restaurant though. It used to be the highlight of the visit to have a casual... More

Hello! An evening meal in a restaurant should be also a social event, that can't be denied. I'm a little bit confused about your comments on how our service seems to have changed into wrong direction. I'm sorry if we gave you the impression of not being interested in our guests because that is not the way we work. We... More
