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.

Hotel is located bit oddly between two buildings on both sides of the street, maybe we got our room on the older side. Our room was clean and ok, old and dated but clean. Bed was big and comfy, room it self was quite small. We didn´t had any towels in room - called room service who promised towel asap... More

I arrived one hour late than planned, thanks to VR. Thanks to reception everything went well in getting the room and I barely made the late dinner in time. Food was good, and there really was enough for me even I was starving and didn't dare to take the recommended dish for hungriest people. I already had doubts how I... More

We were on the 6th floor well above the noise from the Irish bar opposite. Have stayed here before and will be again. Breakfast is good but scrambled egg is probably the worst I have tried in any hotel that I have stayed in. Waitresses cleared the buffet at 10am to the second

I stayed in this hotel for two nights. It was very conveniently located near the railway station but also in the center of Vaasa. The staff were very friendly, my standard room clean and the typical Nordic/Scandinavian breakfast buffet adequate.
