This place is full of history. Gladly it is still filling it's original purpose. Rooms are tidy and cozy and just a bit oldfashioned. Spend at least a night in the old part of hotel (Linna) if visiting Imatra or surroundings

It certainly looks a fantasy hotel with the River Vuoksi running past, today, the inside looks a little tired! Our room was quite comfortable with an entry passage which was quite large leading to a lounge area with settee, TV and mini bar. There was also a door leading to a small balcony with room for only two chairs. Double... More

The hotel seems to be having some sort of crisis of management and there's a lack of attention to detail that makes what could be a great hotel somewhere I will never go back to and would not recommend. For example, we stayed two nights this July and while our room was madeup between nights no one bothered to make... More

I spent one night in this hotel, one part is a castle with a beautiful garden and trees all around. Good restaurant, sauna and gym available. Clean and quiet rooms. Wifi also available.Great parking available. International breakfast. In the wintertime it would be very suggestive. Unfortunately the rapids nearby were not working when I arrived, I think the show works... More

What a wonderful castle-like building at the Vuoksi rapids - allows you to expect luxury, when you enter the hotel. However, one of the best suites was somewhat a disappointment. Hot summer day and no air conditioning, not able to open the windows, as they were obviously painted shut (hotel maid could not open them either). The extra bed in... More

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
