“Traditional”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Nice choice if you have car and will have beautiful view over lake outside city center. Big rooms, big window, free wi-fi connection, bat that it´s. Old Finnish traditional congress hotel, poor soundproofing, hue of old but not so good times. Friendly staff, standard hotel breakfast.

Unfortunately, I couldn't sleep in this room because of the noise of the air condition. Although I asked at the reception to cut it off, they promised, but couldn't manage it due to the general conditions.
Also in the breakfast room there was so much noise because of the small children. I would prefer a separate room for people who have to use your hotel during business stays in Tampere.

Outside Tampere centrum, in the middle of the small natural park, on the lakeside. So place is nice but as hotel is a bit outdated it might not be the best choice for tourists. On your way someplace else it is fine to stay one night. Price is somewhat 20-40 euros cheaper that the other Scandic hotels in Tampere. Food in restaurant was over my expectations and breakfast buffet is "scandinavian", huge plus. Rooms is ok or nice but e.g. my bathroom was a bit "dirty looking" althought well cleaned.

The hotel is old and need a big renovation. We spent two nights (weekend) in August 2012 during our visit in Tampere in a very big 'Family superior plus' suite - two separate rooms, one bathroom and a toilet, a plenty of room for two adults and kids and one big dog. A staff was very warmful and polite, they make us feel cozy and wanted guests. Room was clean, a cleaning works fine. A decoration and colours were out of this time, from 80's or 90's, maybe. A breakfast was nice, but not exceptional, with a local specialty 'black sausage and lingonberry jelly' - if you want try this, try it in Tampere!! A swimming pool and saunas were also old, but worked fine for us. A gym was well-equipmented, clean and new. The hotel is situated near by a lake and surroundings are peaceful and 'nature' - ideal for dog-owners. At the same time, it is, of course, a little bit long way from the centrum of the Tampere city - in summer there is a 'city-train' for a little, non-guided sight-seeing tour and transportation to the downtown, leaving at the front-door of the hotel. A restaurant offers decent food for a dinner, but, again, the interior decoration of the restaurant is poor, like a school canteen better than a hotel restaurant. Kids playrooms and toys were dirty, videogames were good and worked fine.

Classic tip for a short work after lunch: You should visit the Pyynikki tower for a nice cup of coffee/soda and excellent doughnut!

Room Tip: Choose 'superior' room if possible, bigger and better than average rooms.

With the many other Scandic and other hotels in Tampere, I just cannot recommend staying here. It's location is out of the downtown area, and although in a great setting, it isn't convenient and driving is required (or a reasonably long walk) to get downtown.
The other problem is the hotel itself. It reminded me of my college dormitory in the 1970s - concrete walls in the hallway and only a strip of carpet on the floor. My room was in desperate need of updating and had numerous stains and marks on the wall, door and furniture. The wooden parts of the desk were splintered as well as the bottom of the bathroom door. Those problems of course made me wonder what I could not see that was in poor condition. It was just warm enough to be disappointed that there was no air conditioning and somewhat angry that the windows do not open.
On the positive side - I did see a sign that said the hotel was under construction and my colleague could hear construction at 8:00 am sharp. You should check to make sure construction is completed - but even then downtown is more convenient for business. Parking is free; the breakfast was okay; the internet worked.

Room Tip: If you have to stay there NOW, ask to see if you can get a room already renovated.

When we came, staff welcomed us warmly and kindly. Room was nice and spacious. We, two adults and two children had enough space. Swimmingpoll was great. Breakfast was superb.
The hotel is located Pyynikki and offers great views of Pyhäjärvi.

We spent one night at this hotel on our way from Umea to Helsinki. It may be hard to find without a GPS, but our room was one of the best we encountered in 25 days in Scandinavia. Large, LOTS of light, large bathroom with full countertop, magnifying mirror, shoe brush, fridge, enormous closet, two mirrors, separate desk with old fashioned TV, smaller table with easy chair, etc. The view over the lake was lovely. In spite of the many families with many small children and dogs, the room was very quiet. Wifi was fine. There is no charge for parking in the open lots around the hotel, although nearly all the spaces were taken by the time we arrived.
We had dinner there and chose the "half" buffet of the cold salads and breads. Breakfast was Norwegian substantial. This is clearly a hotel catering to businesses (they have a connected conference center) as well as families. The lobby sported a children's room, a separate room with two PCs and a printer, a piano, some type of video monitor where a child was playing a game, etc.
We prepaid and had an excellent value, especially considering Scandinavian prices!

Room Tip: If you can get a reasonable price, spring for a room with a lake view.
