“Nice hotel right at the harbour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

We came to Lappeenranta for a gathering in the afternoon and more private evening with some close friends afterwards. So we stayed one day only and booked the standard twin for us with two other couples.We picked up this hotel for several reasons;

1. Location, conveniently short walk from the harbour because we had the plan to close the night in one of the boat restaurants along the harbour bridge.
2. Safe and reasonable parking in the basement.
3. Good marks from the recent reviews.
4. Reasonable room rate including breakfast.

It appeared to be the right choice. Location was especially appreciated by the whole group. The service at reception was efficient and good. Lobby and reception were small but offered nice service and drinks from the small bar counter and lucky enough, the times we booked in and out were not too busy. Breakfast served from the morning until 10 am. was also nice and had a wide selection of good varieties of food and fruits. The room was kind of small but what else could we expect from standard twin? It was very clean as the bathroom as well. Positive was that the bed was good and we had balcony facing to the park nearby. At the departure our group shared the opinion that hotel was very good for the price and met well the expectations.

Room Tip: It is worthwhile to use the parking in the basement (take the lift to/from the reception) when comin...

Basic Scandic hotel, but that is not a negative thing. Good central location, right next to fortress, market place, restaurants etc. Reasonable pricing, friendly front desk, clean room with nice little balcony. Bathroom little outdated, but still clean and functional. Breakfast ended already 9.30 and that was a little disappointment, because when you are on holiday, it would've been nice to sleep little later.

Room Tip: In some rooms they have sauna

Good price and only stayed for one night so cant really complain. Quiet and clean with a good central location. Breakfast average and very busy, lobby and reception small and uninspiring. Room dated with a very unappealing but clean bathroom and room was basic with a small wardrobe. Would happily stay again for one night on business but not longer.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. It's our third time staying at this hotel and each time we've been very pleased with it. The staff are very friendly and helpful both in person and via email, the rooms are clean and nicely kept, and the location is ideal. Our room had a sauna in it which could have gotten hotter but perhaps it did not do so because of some sort of safety concerns. Although our room was right beside the elevator, we never heard it so the insulation betwen rooms must be very good. We found the breakfast to be quite good and were also very pleased with the one dinner that we ate at the restaurant. The hotel offers underground secure parking for a fee of 10 Euros per night. All in all, we cannot think of any reason why we would not stay there the next time we're in town.

Stayed here for three days but if you wish to stay longer it is the right place for it. Welcoming and responsive staff give you all necessary information. Clean and well-maintained area, good sound protection including carpet in the corridors. Very apt location for city tour, sightseeings, shoping and relaxation. Quite decent breakfast, perhaps choice of meals could be a bit more various, but for abstemious people that's great. Will definitly come back again if there is special deals or actions.

Room Tip: I think all room is good and quiet.

Stayed here for a business trip for a week. The hotel has excellent facilities, the breakfast has ample quality and tastes delicious, and the rooms with balcony, etc. are very nice. If traveling to Lappeenranta again, I would likely return to this facility. The bar is very small - basically a counter in the lobby and there is limited area to stand or sit if, If you want to enjoy a drink, the best option is to leave the hotel and walk to the nearby establishments.
