“Good location, helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

I have been here twice for one week business trip. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I really love the breakfast! Wide variety and I like that there is also food that is special for the area (eg. grain sausage and very good barley porridge). Rooms are ok, especially the bigger ones. Gym is open 24 hours. Hotel has two restaurants and there are also lots of other restaurants near the hotel. The location is right at the center of the city and only short walk away from the river.

I didn´t expect so much from the hotel but ended up having a very nice one night stay in one of the newly renovated standard rooms. The room was clean, nicely decorated and bright. Bed was comfortable to sleep in, and it was quiet during the night.

Best thing about my stay was the breakfast. One of the best ones I´ve ever had in a hotel! So much selection and variety, and high quality food.

I visited this hotel for one night as business trip. It was suitable for this purpose. Staff was helpful, some of them little bit shy and introvert. Room was ok for the prize, I stayed there only for sleeping. Downstairs there were Amarillo Restaurant which serves mexican/texmex/grill food and it was ok too. Breakfast was really good and tasty and high quality.

I would not come here with children, but with spouse I could. I give big plus for the gym - It was free for hotel customers and I had my privacy training there at 6.30 a.m.

The hotel is quite old and it has a very strange layout. To one floor you get with some elevators, where you have to move to other elevator to get on floor etc. Room was small and taveling with three year old meaning an extra bed made the room even more smaller. Didn't like the hotel, perhaps not getting back if not necessary. The Sauna was the best part of the hotel.

Room Tip: Location is excellent

There is no 'wow' in the architecture of this hotel building or rooms. Rooms are clean but some of them are worn and needs renovation. Personal in the reception is friendly and flexible. But the best part of this hotel is their food restaurant (Satakunta) and the breakfast (also served there). The breakfast that surely is within top ten in the hotels of Finland has a lot of choices and quality is fresh and tasty !

Very standard Sokos hotel next to the city center and shopping. Nice staff in the reception organised all special requirements for our group very quickly. Rooms were clean, but you can see those have been heavily used -> renovation recommended. We had beers in the hotel restaurant Amarillo and the service was quick also. Nice atmosphere. Breakfast typical finnish full breakfast, a lot of choices. Car park available either behind of the hotel (free of charge) or next door in the parking hall with 12eur/6eur.

Pretty good location with a few restaurants around. Hotel is OK and the breakfast was actually really good with plenty of options. Easy parking. Works well for a couple of nights. Ok value for money but nothing spectacular.
