“Great location - close to ferries, bus, & city center, clean, good food”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

We enjoyed our stay, but it was not a good value - quite expensive, even for Finnish prices, in my opinion. Room was nice, great location (walk to bus, walk to ferry, walk to eat), next to City Center. They are doing construction on the street out front, but it isn't bad and the noise was not a problem. Fantastic buffet breakfast, like all Finnish hotels - wonderful food. Stayed here twice a few days apart, before and after our Saima cruise to St. Petersburg - nice side trip. Free WiFi, helpful staff (details about bus, etc.), let us check out late so we could enjoy Lappeenranta, which is a very pretty town with a nice harbor with fortress overlooking it - hike up there!!

Room Tip: back side away from street during construction

Functional Nordic hotel with a good breakfast and clean rooms. Free wifi and an excellent location for restaurants or walking to the old fortress or shopping. Nothing much more to say really!

Easy to find, free parking. Our room was apparently a "superior" room but felt very standard compared to other Finnish hotels although the balcony was nice to have. Everything was clean and in good order. Breakfast was good rather than excellent. The staff whilst not unfriendly were rather lacking in customer care! The hotel is in a great spot, less than 5 mins walk to the harbour with sightseeing vessels and the amazing sandcastle display. Linnoitus is also only a short stroll away. We'd stay here again but wouldn't go out of our way to do so.

Stayed one night in Patria from Sun 17 to Mon 18 June. Last time stayed in this hotel was more than 2 years ago and the hotel had been totally renovated since then.

The hotel is clean and ok renovated. Personnel ok, especially in the breakfast on Monday morning.

As we had drived for more than 3 hours we would have wanted to have dinner at the hotel restaurant BUT the restaurant was closed on Sunday. The weather was not good, it was raining but we had to walk to another restaurant nearby. It was a disappointment that the restaurant was closed on Sundays but perhaps it does not have enough persons so that it would be competitive to be open. We did not want to eat some snack only, we had to eat properly.

Breakfast was varied and good, nothing to complaine (but not any luxury which you do not even think you get in a place like this).

Seemed to be off-season , not many persons staying in the hotel at the same time.

Situation is fine in the middled of everything in Lappeenranta.

Overall, a good place to stay for a short time in a small Finnish city.

This is a basic hotel, but a good one. Our room (superior) was spacious, it had wooden floor, big tv and all the basic equipments I expect from a bit pricy hotel.

Breakfast is great with really good bacon. Sauna area was nice, they had different times for men and women. Gym had new and sufficent equipments.

Because they were fully booked for the weekend I also stayed in nother main hotel of Lappeenranta, hotel Lappee. I have to say Patria was better in every aspect, exept that hotel Lappee had a pool.

I stayed in Patria for 1 night in Feb 2012 for business with many colleagues. The hotel is centrally located very near the harbour and shopping facilities, restaurants and bars. Overall this hotel is average compared to international hotel standards. In local scale this hotel is good, and one of the two main choises in Lappeenranta. Room was clean, not very big but ok for solo traveler. Some lorry noise did carry in from the near by bigger road, so please remember to ask for quiet room if you are a light sleeper. Breakfast was standard with expected normal quality.Hotel bar did close a bit too early leaving many customers standing to very small bar next to reception and main entrance. That was a bit weird behaviour and was not really according good service standards and attitude. This was maybe the main single reason for overall "average" rating in my review.

Room Tip: Avoid noise from the near by road
