Generally we liked our stay in Rantasipi Imatran Valtionhotelli thanks to SPA-complex and good weather. The hotel is very good but there were some defects which we didn’t like. + Our room was comfortable, spacious (even for 3 persons), stylish and cosy. We liked 2 big mirrors, lots of sockets, relax zone with sofa and coffee table and minibar, beautiful... More

Like stepping back in time with this hotel. The spa is not bad, hot tub is more of a warm tub, but it's pleasant. The staff are great in all aspects. We went to the restaurant for dinner, the food was really great. However, the portions were hilarious; two spoonfuls of soup can be expected with the lobster fish soup.... More

We had one overnight in this hotel, it´s not cheap, but we decided to do it now as "once a lifetime". Unfortunately nearby outside of the city there were held Party Congress and we got accommodated in new Spa wing building (1985), which looked really as a "product" of 80´s. Nothing really seriously bad, but, everything was worn out and... More

Yes, the bathroom was a little bit dated but the whole building is a gem and has real character. And the service is good too. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was a pleasant surprise to find food that good at that price on a Monday evening in March! In Finland that is achievement. I stood outside that... More

The hotel has historical value and it is built in magnificent Finnish national romantic style (art noveu/jugend). A lot of the original décor has been preserved: even if you did not stay in this hotel, you should visit it just to enjoy the architecture. The standard rooms are rather small&modest, if you can, opt for a better room and you... More

We spent here X-mas 2015. The atmosphere is unique, the location, too! The hotel was full booked, but the service with all the season's specials worked fine. There were a choice of activities to participate, and the entertainment was just right for a traditional X-mas. Food could not have been better! A wide variety of the season's typical dishes to...

We expected more from this hotel, as it's the best hotel in Imatra. First we visited it's restaurant and liked it (in old style with good dishes^ the service was ok, but there were only 3 tables occupied) and decided to move to this hotel.

There are lots of colourful stories of this stylish hotel. We enjoyed this place a lot. I heard a local proverb about the hotel: "Three stars for the place, two stars for the service and one star for food." We met, however, a very helpful and friendly personnel but the food could be better with relatively small changes. I wish... More

If you don't want modern hotel, this hotel is right for you. The castle-like hotel is furnished with antiques and gives it an original atmosphere. There is a new side building for spa-guests which is an extremely modern building. I would recommend staying in the main castle building. The spa was an ok experience. You would think that if it's...

The beautiful building looks almost as an old castle...! The location is just as beautiful too, next to the Imatra river. I stayed here one night while on a business trip. The room was nice and comfortable, but not very spacious. The dinner and breakfast was excellent, and the service overall was good. A little bit pricy for my taste,... More
