“Very nice accomodation at 7 km from Jyvaskyla”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

The hotel is a good one. 2 swimming pools, different kind of saunas, 2 restaurants (a fast food and a normal one) bowling lanes and a disco are in the hotel.
All rooms are nice a standard is pretty good.
Food is OK....could become boring on the long run because of the low variety.
great location if you go during the World Rally Event.
Jyvaskyla is at 10 minutes drive....with taxi, around 15€.
Staff is nice.
Close to the woods for some relaxing walks.
breaksfast above average

Spa Hotel Rantasipi Laajavuori is located in very beautiful surroundings quite near to the city center of Jyväskylä (Jyvaskyla).

We had a Superior room. There is a wonderful view from all Superior rooms. These rooms are very spacious even for a family of four. We had very good extra beds for two children and the room was big enough. You can control air conditioning yourself.

Hotel Laajavuori is the first hotel in Rantasipi hotel chain. The furnishings of our room had been retained as close to their original version as possible. So our room had the style of 1970's.

There is a very good panorama spa department with indoor swimming pools in the hotel. There are also massaging showers, a whirlpool (a jacuzzi) and a children's pool there. Saunas are also very good. There are a forest style sauna, a cottage sauna and a city sauna with a TV for men. There a a rose sauna and a crystal sauna for women. Besides, there is a steam room (mixed for men and women). All these are included in a room price. There is a beautiful view from the spa department to Lake Tuomiojärvi and forests.

There is also a very good gym in the hotel (included in a room price) and possibilities for mini golf. There are also both indoor and outdoor playgrounds for children. Laajavuori ski resort is situated almost next to the hotel.

Room Tip: Book a Superior room and you will get an amazing scenery from your room.

I stayed in standard room on the third floor. Doors of the rooms are bright yellow. The room was quite big and it´s been renovated some time ago. Tv is old-fashioned style. Wi-fi was working nicely. Bathroom is renovated also but it would still need some update to this millenium.
Bed was quite soft and pillows were just awful. The sleeping quality is not so good, it can be really noisy during the nights. You can easily hear the noise from the next room or from the corridor.

Food is quite average on this hotel. I didn´t try the spa at all.

Its a large complex. I've visited in September but I guess its a ski resort as well.

Rooms are spacious and clean but I must say not very comfortabe. Nice lake view from your window. Breakfast was quite nice and rich. The spa was a bit outdated. With an investment the hotel easily may be a popular spa attraction spot.

This is a good hotel very large, with several services.
Our room was very spacious, clean and with a fantastic view of the woods and the lake. Very nice spa with two pools and several saunas. Inside the hotel there is also a restaurant, a pub and a bowling alley. The staff is friendly and competent. The location is great, just outside the center and near the ski slopes and ski jumps.

I have been a couple of times at Rantasipi while on business trips.
It is a fair hotel, in the middle of a pine forest and close to sky slopes as well as to nordic sky circuits.
Rooms are quite big, clean and well kept.
Service and reception people proved to be professional and kind.
The restaurant is nothing really exciting, however there is buffet where you can have dinner at a fair (Finnish) price.
Access to wi-fi internet was free, but I am not sure if it was part of the agreement with my company or if it is free for all guests.

Booked a family room via telephone yet was charged for extra bed? Spa area pretty unkept, mostly senior citizens and veterans. Lovely location and possibilities of winter sports. Need improvements on customer services. I would rate it average.
