This hotel is tuned up. There has been renovation in lobby and all so in rooms. Sauna Torni has beautiful view over the lake. Rooms are modern and just renovated. Food was quite good, I had tasted breakfast, lunch and dinner, All these was quite good,

Stayed one night while attending a meeting close by. The room was big and clean, nothing to complain about. There are some basic issues why I would not choose this hotel again: the rooms have no phones, you will have to go to the front desk if you want to ask something. No business center or a computer for guest... More

Very basic hotel. Ok for one night when you stay on business, but do not expect anything more than a bed and a bathroom. The room I stayed was really basic with 2 individual beds and a shower bathroom. Service was ok and breakfast standard continental. Restaurant/disco was under renovation but it did not bother me at all. The hotel... More

A rather typical Finnish middle-of-the-road hotel, does not surprise you positively but doesn’t do that negatively either. Review based on a one night stay in November (background of spending 80+ nights per year in different hotels around the globe). Location: Very close to the railway station, some distance from the city center. Apart from the station there’s nothing much of... More

I got nice room with great view to the lake. Quality of the food both dinner and breakfast is on lower side of my scale. Typical rather poor sokos hotel quality (hotel... More

The hotel was very clinical. The room looked more like a cheap chain hotel rooms than comfortable hotel rooms. This Sokos hotel chain has more comfortable looking rooms, but not in Hämeenlinna. The price of the room was 100 – 130 € (depending from where you book it). The room did not have mini-bar / fridge or an electric kettle.... More

Nice location on the lake and the lake view from the sauna area make the difference. Convenient partially roofed parking area behind the building make access easy. Breakfast offering follows typical Finnish standard,

Stayed one night here in this standard Sokos chain hotel. Hotel is close to railway station and only short walk to the town centre. I asked for the room with a lake view, and got it. Beautiful view, big and cosy room. I chose this hotel, because they provide bikes for rent for customers. It was so nice to cycle... More

A bit worn out. Nothing special, but the price. I guess its the lack of alternatives that keeps this place going. Maybe its ok for someone traveling for business for a day or two, but for anything even closely resembling a romantic get-away I would think again.

This hotel is probably one of the best i have visited. Everytime the staff is very friendly and makes me feel at home. Also the staff doesn't change that much so I remember them. More than once i have been able to talk to the manager or someone higher and they have wanted to know how they can improve this... More
