Kelpo hotelli; ei kiiltele uutuuttaan ja monin paikoin olisi pieni pintaremontti paikallaan, mutta puitteet muuten kunnossa. sijaitsee keskustassa, palvelu ystävällistä ja plussana ylimmän kerroksen saunaosasto uima-altaalla; perheen pienin nautti erityisesti siitä. --- Quite nive hotel; does not shine as new and needs some renevation partly, but over-all it's working fine.

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

My elderly parents and I have been traveling Scandinavia for two weeks and this was one of the best hotels and most spacious of all our stays! We had a superior room and it was handicap accessible and handicap amenities in the bathroom which my step-mom greatly appreciated. Wonderful friendly staff, quick checking in process and room was ready for... 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.

We only used the resteraunt and the food was good if not very imaginative. The staff were friendly and the service was very good and timely. It was a Monday evening and it appeared well used by the residents who were all chatting and enjoying themselves.

Location of the hotel is good in Vaasa. Central location. Hotel staff was not so friendly. Room was quite new, but interior was funny and finished with a bad taste. Perhaps the best in this hotel was pool in the upper floor and a sauna. I swam there myself and view over the city of Vaasa was beautiful late in... More

Stayed at this hotel several times when it was part of the Radisson chain. It needed some maintenance then but this week walking into the refurbished lobby for the first time I was looking forward to something different.
