Stayed at Lappee in August 2016 for three nights. Bed was super comfortable. Failed to take a picture of marvelous feather lampshade... Breakfast just perfect and loved the access to shopping centre. Great hotel.

We stayed one night. Our room was really new, e.g. air condition was working properly! Friendly staff, clean room, good location. Breakfast was excellent: bacon and eggs, fresh salad etc. Extra point for local products: tasty juice and bread. Nice sauna and pool. Shopping center really near (in the same building). Only minus: it was a long way to walk...

I was hosting a meeting in this hotel. I have absolutely no complains at all. Just the opposite. Even though the space for meetings is little bit old fashioned, the audio is good, and I was just amazed how ambitious was the hotels meeting host worker. She was very helpful all the time and doing her work very conscientious. I...

We got good service at the reception. Our room was new, just made. There is a supervised parking hall 8€/day for the hotel guests. Breakfast was large and delicious. There was a good sauna (separate saunas for women and for men) and a swimming pool. There is also a little gym but there wasn't anyone there in Saturday evening.

I stayed here for two nights on a business trip. Here are my thoughts: The property - built in the early 80's and renovated a couple times afterwards. I have heard the style of the hotel referred to as "soviet architecture". Not pleasing to the eye, but it gets the job done. Location - next to a shopping mall in...

Dear "WutangIs4TheChildren", thank you for sharing your opinion in Tripadvisor. I am sorry that we can't ful fill your expectations and disappoint you in too many issues. Some of these things you mentioned can be fixed but some unfortunately not. I am truly sorry that we have made you face e.g. broken furnitures. That kind of things are not acceptable....

This hotel has new rooms at the top of a shopping center, where you can go over a bridge from the main building. The rooms are small, clean and simple, but nice anyway. The staff is very friendly and polite. The breakfast room is situated quite far, so you have to walk through the shopping center to reach your morning...

Nice hotel in the heart of Lappeenranta. The hotel is connected to the shopping mall Iso Kristiina. The gym is sufficient. There's a swimming pool and sauna. Recommend the superior room not so much the standard. Breakfast was a okay, however, stay away from the industrial scrambled eggs.

I have always liked this hotel. Great rooms, clean, quiet, good bed and pillows. Excellent free Wi-Fi. Located within a mall so you can take a lift down next to the shops and restaurants. The mall seems a bit quiet though. Breakfast is great and service too.

In principle this was a good hotel with excellent service. A small clean room and a narrow shower. There was not a bedside table beside another bed. You have to leave your phone etc. on the floor. Everything went quite well, although I wonder if it was was a nice experience to the visitor. If the hotel is fully booked,...

This is a centrally located normal business hotel, with a decent breakfast and facilities. The shopping centre in the same building was really good. You can literally go shopping without even putting your coat on. And an extra star comes because of the "Rakuuna" horses and riders that came to greet us to the hotel. Cute!

“Hotelli on osittain uudistettu, joten huoneet uudeltä puolelta voivat olla modernimpia, ehkä myös hiljaisempia.”
