“Good value for the money”
Reviewed July 12, 2011

Our family has stayed in this hotel several times during the past years. Kemi isn't a big town and there isn't so much choice for hotels, but we've been always happy with this hotel.
The location of this hotel is fantastic: you can go jogging or walking to the sea shore, which starts right across the street. The rooms follow Finnish hotel standards, which means that they are clean and comfortable. We are a family of three and the extra bed fits to the room, but then it gets a bit crowded.
I haven't used wifi in the room, because there is a computer with internet connection in the lobby and you can use it without extra charge.
Breakfast is nothing fancy but still has everything you need. Reception has always worked efficiently and friendly. The car park is located adjacent to the hotel and is free,
We have always asked for a quiet room and we have never had any disturbance from the streets or restaurants.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cumulus Kemi Hotel. The room was very comfortable and warm and breakfast was great, but one member of staff was exceptional. She spent ages helping us to find times of buses and trains for the next leg of our journey, when we were abandoned by our tour company. She spoke excellent English too. We really felt welcome at this hotel. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Just wish I had taken the staff member's name to thank her personally.

Kemi does not boast many 'normal' hotels - it is much more famous for the seasonal Snow Castle - but the Cumulus offers a warm, comfortable and welcoming base in the centre of this small town.

Rooms follow the Finnish style - pleasantly but basically furnished, warm, well insulated, comfortable and with shower rather than bath. A good buffet breakfast was included in the price. Rooms also have free broadband access.

The restaurant is one of the best on offer in Kemi, certainly in terms of menu choice. Food was tasty and plentiful, and the service good. The restaurant is let down by its decor which seems to have cobbled together a variety of styles and lighting, and could do with a complete upgrade, but it is not bad enough to put you off your food.

The Cumulus is well located, about 5 minutes from the Snow Castle and sea. There is not a great deal to do in Kemi outside the winter activities for which it is rightly famous, but the Cumulus will provide a good base for a night or two.

Prices were good, and we obtained a discount by contacting the hotel directly rather than using its website.

We stayed here in conjunction with the Sampo Ice Breaker cruise. The hotel staff is very helpful with making your travel arrangements to/from the ship and to/from the airport/train/bus. The restaurant has delicious local food for reasonable prices (we ate there both nights of our stay and we generally hate eating in hotels). Rooms are comfortable albeit spartan, with good beds and linens and super clean, spacious bathrooms. I would definitely recommend a stay here if you are doing the Ice Breaker. The staff provides 5-star concierge service, while being friendly and speaking excellent English.

Stayed April 2007
