“Nice budget hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Ok location, clean rooms, surprisingly good breakfast buffet but no evening restaurant. Feels more like a hostel than hotel..

If you thinkin arrive after 18 mention that when make resevation, because reception are normally open only till 18.00.
Hotel does not have restourant and lobby bar are close when receptionist leave.
At evening, there are free sauna and pool.

Hotel Kauppi is located about 4 km from the center of Tampere, so it's only for those driving. This is a no frills place. THe reception closes at 6 pm, but they leave you a code if you arrive later. It worked fine. Rooms were spacous, equipped with TV, coffee maker, large fridge, and a microwave. Rooms were clean but in need of some renovation. Certainly worth the pay, though - I paid 79 euro for a single room in the weekday.

Wireless internet connection was available free.

Public sauna would have been freely available in the evening, but didn't try it.

Considering the modest overall impression, the breakfast buffet was great, and contained niceties that you don't see in the identical breakfast buffets of big Finnish chains (e.g. Sokoshotels, Cumulus, Scandic).

Pluses: price-quality ratio, friendly serive, and especially breakfast
Minuses: noise from the hallway.

The hotels is clean, although very outdated. But we only needed a place to sleep, so it did not bother us. The room had a refridgerator, coffee machine, iron, hair dryer... It is not in the centre, good for people traveling by car. The breakfast was much better than I expected! People here have complained about noise, but we did not hear any, or it did not bother us. The hotel was very good for the money!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2006

We stayed there 3 nights.
The room are very clean
Sauna and swimming pool open in the afternoon (6pm-9pm) Monday to Friday
Breakfast is good

The only minus is the distance to the center : 20 minutes by foot. If you have your own car no problem as they have free parking in front of the hotel.

They take great care of their customers. We arrived in the late afternoon 11pm and they had someone waiting for us even if their official opening time was finishing at 10pm.
(The normal arrival time in Finland is 5 pm)
