This hotel used to be Sokos hotel, when we visited there. It was very stylish. Room was nice and in the bathroom there was some old style, but it was stylish anyway. Nice big breakfast area. Good selection of food. Staff was friendly. Limited car parking place.

This hotel is located absolutely perfectly near the city centre at a walking distance to all major places of interest in the City of Tampere. If you are interested in architecture this is a showpiece construction made in the Art Deco style, both interior and exterior design. It isn’t as extravagant as the masterpieces in New York (Empire State building/Chrysler... More

This hotel really brings you back in time. The hotel is renovated old hotel that has been here since 1929. The lobby is beautiful and you can feel coming back in time.

This iconic hotel has always been the 'posh one' to stay in. The wonderful Art Deco building and the bygone glamour have set the Grand Hotel apart from the rest. Radisson has recently taken the hotel over and will, no doubt, mould it to their business model. While the rooms and public areas still look the part, the breakfast does... More

Thank you for comments. I am sad to hear that you didn't like Grand Tammer. Although we belong to Radisson Blu brand, we have tried to highlight the personality of Grand Tammer and tried to bring it back to the roots, yet not in a historical way. We like to present what a Grand Hotel could be today. We have... More
