Very good location and breakfast is good enough! Staffs are friendly and helpful. Clean sauna is also comfortable to use, but be careful to bring swimwear if you want to try Jacuzzi pool next to sauna, which is mixed. One more good thing was rental bicycle, which is offered by free of charge. I liked it and used it whole... More

The location of this hotel is excellent. It's close to the train station and the shopping area. It's also close to the local bus stops. Our room was small but comfortable. The window opened so the temperature was pleasant. The only problem was that the shower drained all over the bathroom floor. The daily breakfast was delicious with many choices.... More

Hotel location in the center is excellent. Railway and buss stations are very close. Distance to shopping street is only 200 meters. Economy room is very small, Only one chair. Bath room is the minimum but working. Hotel has two restaurants. Breakfast was tasty up to my taste. Scrambled egg was terrible. No taste at all.

Air condition is very noisy and apparently can't be turned off. No sleep in this hotel. Also note that this is located at crossroads of two quite busy streets so there is also traffic noise added to the air condition noise if you're unlucky enough to get a room from street side.Otherwise decent place. Room was clean but bit shoddy,... More

The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. My room was very comfortable and had everything I could possibly need in it, and the breakfast was incredible, so much choice including a whole section for people on a gluten free diet. As I had booked in person at the last minute (with no paper work to confirm... More

This hotel is only a short walk from the railway station, and very central. Friendly staff and great breakfast. Check out is 12 noon, but they were flexible when I asked if I could stay until my 13:15 train left. Good restaurant on ground floor (Fransmanni). Only drawback: the karaoke bar across the street will keep you entertained throughout the... More

A typical Finnish hotel. Friendly staff, all the amenities are available including sauna. Adequate breakfast included. In the rooms you may encounter very worn out surfaces and you could hope for a better cleaning of the "should-be-white" tile seams in the bathroom. But hey - for a night or two, this is an ok choice.

Have stayed in various Sokos hotels in Jyvaskyla and multiple times in Alexandra. This is a nice hotel, could be a bit slow if there are lot of guests at the reception and you are waiting to get checked in or even ask a question. Rooms are good with spacious and comfy and clean. Minibar is loaded. Staff are very... More

Excellent location near the train station and extremly helpful staff. However the room was shabby and worn down. Table was lacking paint and floor had several scratch marks on it. Toilet and shower was clean and in good condition. Breakfast was good and plentiful, could have wished for more bread options.

As is often the Sokos hotels are very poor at efficiently managing the reception if a few people arrive at the same time. As an organisation they need to have better systems as it gives a bad first impression. The staff are always pleasant and helpful and have a dual function as concierge. This is a good chain of hotels... More
