Huoneen taso lähentelee välttävää. Sängyt liian pehmeät, kylpyhuone kulunut, vanhat tapetit jne. Suurin miinus verhoista jotka ovat pikemminkin mummon mökkiin sopivat sisustuselementit kuin hotelliin eivätkä pimennä huonetta ollenkaan. Herätys 05.00 auringon noususta.

Worn-out rooms and impossible to sleep due to curtains which are not blocking any sun light which you get 20 hours a day during the season in Finland.

Spent three nights here in a large superior room. Very quiet room location far from elevators and restaurants. Good beds and room equipment.

Great breakfast with local specialities. Good bar and night club. Attentive service everywhere. Many conference rooms and helpful staff.

It was a nice visit. Service was good. Kimmel can be easily accessed by car. The walk to the center of Joensuu is about 15 minutes, so the location is good. Room was clean. Breakfast ended a bit too early for me.

This was my second stay at Kimmel. Last time I stayed at another wing of the hotel and the room was like going back in time to the 80s. This time I was on the 4th floor in the main building and the room was much nicer and more modern. Kimmel is an interesting hotel in that on one hand everything works but on the other you end up disappointed about something. E.g. I had thought to go for a swim in the morning but the pool was open daily 16-21. All on all, there’s nothing memorable about the place.
4 stars for the location which is right next to the train station and only a short distance from the city center.

Nice basic hotel, good location. The room was a little old-fashioned but there was a renovation going on. Everything is a bit "rysty" specially at the old side of the hotel
Nice breakfast. Parking 9,00€/ day

Room Tip: Upper floor
