Hotel is located conveniently close to Vaasa railroad station and just one block away from Market Square. Hotel is in fact two separate buildings, attached to each other with underground tunnel. Hotel has been there long and you can see it. Wooden floors, which I prefer, are worn out more or less depending room. My room closet was functioning, but... More

If you travel to Vaasa by train, the station is just a couple of minutes walk away at the end of the street. We stayed in the newer (Royal) building where the rooms did have air conditioning. The staff were all very helpful. Breakfast was in the older building across the street. However, there is a pleasant underground link between... More

Quite central location, currently only one restaurant in action for evening meal, sadly not the better one!

The service was good as well as breakfast and location. Otherwise the hotel had for sure seen it's best days. Room was oldish and shabby even though clean. There was no air-condition!!! so the room was hot and it was hard to sleep. Wi-Fi did not work well! The hotel consisted of two huge buildings connected by a tunnel. My... More

Starting from the lobby, everything was clean and service was polite. Room was clean and comfortable. Hotel locates both sides of the road and there is tunnel under the road. Reception was in the "Royal"-side and Breakfastroom was in the older "classic"-side. Breakfast was very diverse and quality of those ingredients seemed great.
