“Nightmare”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Nice location, good service, but the music from the night club made our 3rd floor room tremble and impossible to sleep until closing time at 3 am.
The only warning was a pair of ear plus given from the
front desk when checkng-in. Can only recommend the hotel if you plan to party until early morning.

Stayed July 2014, traveled with family

Best all year round open hotel in the city. Quality in rooms and in service meets Original Sokos Hotel standards, sauna and breakfast exceed the standards. Very well located in the heart of the city with lake view.

As always, my review is very subjective. And in this case the subjectivity rises, not only from the hotel itself, but also from the rainy and dark gray November evening when I arrived to the small town of Savonlinna. The location of the hotel is very good - in the town centre with an easy access to all the services of the town. My room was a boring twin, but with a lake view. The design is from the 80's or 90's, and it would need an immediate upgrade. The bed was even worse than my own at home... The lobby design was a horrible mixture of different styles from ulta modern white sofas to rustic tables made of wine barrels. Service in the hotel was friendly, breakfast tasteless where the quantity replaced the quality. The room price was very high compared to the quality received. I try to avoid this hotel until it gets a proper facelift or total renovation.

Thank You for visiting us in November! Sorry to hear you found your visit a bit depressing as you titeled your traveler tip. Most of the rooms in our hotel have been renovated in a couple of years time, but some rooms are still waiting to be renovated, next in spring 2014 and the rest in a couple of years time. At the moment there are rooms of different design, but they will be upgraded and the beds renewed with every renovation.
The lobby is also beeing renovated lately and the new Opera Lounch has been opened last week. Wish the decoration is more convenient now.
Happy to hear that the service in our hotel is friendly, we are looking forward to welcoming you here soon again!

I stayed two nights at the hotel in the middle of november 2013. The personnel was very friendly and helpful with great patience. The room was nice and clean. The odd part was that the breakfast was served in the restaurant nearby, so you had to go outside to get breakfast every morning (just some ten meters, but anyhow)!

I have stayed earlier during the opera festival in Casino hotel which is by lake side. It was nice to go to swim from the room - there was also wellness center. Now we were too late when booking this hotel so we booked Sokos Hotel Seurahuone, The room was a bit smaller than that one in Casino. Breakfast was also a bit "smaller in choices". But the plus was the nice 10 to 15 minutes walk to opera - no waiting for taxi or buss as earlier. After opera we enjoyed the scenere and "muikku" fish plate with some wine on the top floor restaurant. The stull understood jokes. You can find also many coffees and other restaurants nearby. The room was quit and clean but without airconditioner. Fortunately it was possible to open the windows, so we slept well. Next morning we went to the market place - Marimekko was also close to this hotel. So I will recommend Sokos Hotel Seurahuone to people going to the opera festival. You can find also a inside car parking (extra 15 euro).

Room Tip: Maybe higher floors are quiter

We stayed here while visiting the opera festival. The castle is within walking distance.

Our room was on the fifth floor, in the part that is not directly accessible by elevator from the lobby (you have to take the stairs from the fourth floor). The room was large enough for two and comfortably furnished. The bathroom was quite large, not sure if that's the case for all the rooms since ours did seem to be of an unusual shape.

Breakfast was served in a restaurant next door to the hotel. The hot food was the usual depressing processed eggs and mini sausages, but everything else was good and plentiful. On a weekday morning before 8 am there was plenty of space, but I'm sure they get busier in the weekends.

Nothing to complain about, would stay again.

Stayed in a standard twin room with a view to the market place. Room was too hot, no air-conditioning and because of sunny side too warm. When arrving and departing receptieon personnel was nice. Room furniture not from this world. Too tiny shower, water came under the shower doors to the whole floor - slippery! HAd dinner with business friend, food was quite ok, tenderloin steaks - sauce was very salty but meat ok, though orderes medium and got well done. Service at restaurant was relly poor - waitress (young girl) was very hard to catch to order more wine (we did not as she never came) and dessert. Breakfast was average, awful¨scrambled eggs like it almost always is the case in Finland, I don't knwo from what stuff it is made in Finland but it tastes not like it should. No bacon. So overall hotelö was disappointment - only good things location and nice personnel at reception.

Room Tip: Don't know if there is a good one.
