“Very small room”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Stayed here April 26 and 27th wirth my wife for a romantic getaway. The hotel room had many good features, opening window,comfortable beds, coffee-tea making equipment,great location, some free outdoor parking, free wi-fi, quick lifts, muti-lingual friendly staff. We stayed in a superior room which included bathrobes and slippers and clothes pressing stuff, but the room was so small I find it hard to believe it could be classified as "superior". Our room was 463 in the old section. Typical of Sokos city hotels in the town centre with reception accessed by tunnel or having to go outside to get there. Generally very good except for a tiny room.

Room Tip: Don't accept room 463 if you book superior unless all rooms are the same size.

I've stayed at this hotel for several business trips. Their refurbished rooms come in different color themes. I've experienced green, blue and red of which green is my favorite. These rooms are not big but they are very comfortable and stylish. Great bed and great shower! My rooms have always been ultra clean.

Breakfast is typical 'Sokos Hotel' but it is quite good. You'll not be hungry after having it.

Service is always polite and friendly. Finns can do that really =)

Room Tip: Refurbished rooms are a little more expensive but worth it. Try a green room. Red is also nice.

Sokos Hotel Puijonsarvi is well located hotel in Kuopio, following Sokos hotels quality. The actual hotel is divided in two buildings across the street. Rooms are fine, not really spacious but OK. Breakfast in Puijonsarvi is as good as usually in Sokos hotels, so I was happy with it. There's free outside parking and garage for a fee. Naturally like in almost all hotels in Finland, good level of wifi service is available. I visited the hotel in winter, but I expect the area to be much more astounding in summer.

There are couple of restaurants on the first floor of "second" hotel building, and you can easily walk to reach other services Kuopio has to offer.

I stayed for two nights at this hotel for a business trip. The reception staff were kind and very helpful. The rooms are basic but have a minibar and ensure. Both rooms I stayed In on two separate nights were warm comfortable and practical. It's not luxurious but very functional. Great selection for breakfast. I would return here again. The hotel has a nice bar on the ground floor.

Stayed one night after Tahko MTB race. The hotel is quite ok, we were able to have private sauna session, no one else was there. Staff was great when allowing us to bring our MTB bikes inside to hotel. They arranged a room for them, so we didn't need to leave bikes to car roofs. Risk for stealing them was too high. Breakfast is what Sokos hotel breakfast is, no surprises so it was at least ok. Surely getting back there after the same race again.

I had a business trip in Kuopio so spent the night here. I've stayed here before and experiences have been mixed. This time it was not mixed, it was poor. My room was too cold (no way to adjust the temperature), TV was very old and there was no way To adjust the picture to fit the screen (image was too small so I missed part of the subtitles). I got WLAN user name and password from reception, too bad that my room was located so that WLAN was hardly visible. Couldn't use it. I mean why do they even bother to give this particular room to their customers? I know hotel was fully booked but I am a company traveller and have bonus card for this hotel chain...

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms in the old building, and in there, try to avoid rooms that are located far away f...

I spend one night at Sokos Hotel Puijonsarvi in Kuopio.

The hotel is very centrally located, about 25 minutes from the Kuopio airport, right next to Snellmann-park.

The facility has a small bar next to lobby, larger restaurant for hotel guests across the street (with a tunnel connection for those of you who do not want to go out during the winter), a night club and large conference and meeting facilities.

My room was on the 4th floor and a very standard, very typical, aka "hotel death room", they all look the same with most Sokos hotels in Finland. You really cant tell the difference in which city you are in.

The breakfast was decent, but the restaurant was extremely crowded by hotel guests at 0800 am.

Staff at the hotel were kind, attentive and helpful. No thrills but no disappointments either.
