“Simply the best hotel in Jyväskylä”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

There's no denying on this. I was there already for a fourth time. Every time it's been a different room, each of them has been very good one.
To say it straight, I've been to many hotel's with bigger rooms, more modern toilets, all kinds of nice details. But already the lobby area of this hotel is such nice, it's wine selection just great and service always friendly, that I find it well above the average.

My first real visit to Jyväskylä. We stayed three nights in one of the Yöpuu's apartments in next building. Apartment 108 is cozy, pretty normal small apartment with a little bit too small not well functioning bathroom, nice living room with double bed and okay kitchen. The apartment is okay, but nothing special. Clean and nice, but I suppose the rooms in the hotel are more special, more beautiful as well.

Breakfast - excellent. We had every night the dinner in the restaurant Pöllöwaari. Excellent food, wonderful selection of wines, great service by real professionals with good attitude. I can warmly recommend.

I said: "I just booked a room at Yöpuu in Jyväskylä!" Many replied: "oh, the most expensive hotel in town!". But I didn't find Yöpuu that expensive because we stayed in one of their apartments right next door from the boutique hotel itself. We stayed in Jyväskylä one week and the apartment was a great option. Completely renovated modern studio with white floorpanels and tastefully decorated. It even had a washing machine and an ironing board - so I felt I got more than a hotel room with less money. Only two things would have made me give the fifth star to this place; a breakfast included in the room rate and less noice from the street. Perhaps also a dishwashing machine would have been nice. Nevertheless the location of Yöpuu is really good. Room tip: ask for some other apt. than 103, it's too noisy.

Hotel Yöpuu is easily the best hotel in Jyväskylä. This small boutique hotel has a different theme in every room. Some of the rooms have stronger themes (eg. Africa) and some are more modest (standard solo rooms). You should always request a themed room instead of a standard room. The difference is huge in experience, but not that significant in price.

The service has always been friendly and the breakfast is superb (eg. organic porridge). Hotel is an excellent business hotel, but it works also for couples. The lounge and the restaurant are really good quality. The restaurant is probably the most expensive in Jyväskylä, but well worth the price.

Gym would be nice, but I guess it doesn't fit the concept very well. Overall the concept of the hotel is very polished and therefore the experience has always been great. I've visited Yöpuu probably dozens of times and have always enjoyed my stay. The same can't be said about many things.

At the last visit I stayed in Africa which is one of the classic rooms of the hotel (see the photos).

Room Tip: Always ask a strongly themed room. Africa is one of the classics.

We stayed one night, got a large room from a nearby block house, but the room was great with a sauna and balcony. Hotel has garage underneath. Restaurant is superb quality, we loved it. Service overall good.

Remarkably charming and characterful, almost idiosyncratic, small hotel. Filled with antiques and specially themed rooms. Mine had a modern “Alvar Aalto” theme while I understood others were much more traditional. The main disadvantage is the lack of a lift but this was more than made up for by the friendly staff and great atmosphere. Location is quite central.

This is the ultimate in cosiness. It's like being at someones villa. A unique place in Jyväskylä. Almost worth visiting Jyväskylä for. I've been here several times and this is the first time i'm writing a review.

Ideally located
Beautifully furnished
Suer quiet
Great staff
Excellent food! (without a doubt the best restaurant in Jyväskylä)

You have to love this place, and now that it's been redecorated it doesn't get any better.

106€/night, including a welcome drink at the bar and breakfast.
I was pleasantly upgraded to a Superior Room. Thank you

Room Tip: If you're in Finland and anywhere close to Jyväskylä, this is a must stop over.
