Big difference between promises at the website and the reality. Personal poorly motivated, atmosphere sad... Sorry, but it was like that!

Attended to big conference at Aulanko once again.

Hotel is situated in beautiful surroundings and the Spa is quite OK. Unfortunately rooms are quite outdated, they are not clean and the restaurant food isn't what it should be with prices like that.

Room Tip: There are many suites if you can afford one - some of them have Saunas, Jacuzzis +++ All the suites...

This hotel is ok conference hotel, but nothing special. Definitely needs some upgrade. Breakfast was weaker than S-Group hotels. Would I stay there again? No

Aulanko is a beautiful location for a good conference hotel with excellent facilities and service. The new Spa is also very nice.

Tha Aulanko Rantasipi has a great history and lays in wonderful surroundings. It is perfect for a weekend getaway in the summer and you can enjoy a variety of sports and culture in its vicinity. It is slightly dated and would need some refurbishment, but does hit the regular mark on a Finnish chain hotel.We stayed with dogs, it was very convenient as we had our own patio with access to the park and golf course. They provide accommodation in bigger rooms (i.e. for families, up to 4 persons) however, I do not recommend that solution. The extra bed that had been placed in the room was hard, small and very uncomfortable.The spa and waterpark are great and convenient. There are many fine things with this hotel. Its surroundings are majestic and its Finnish nature as its best in summer. The dining hall is beautifully decorated. As noted earlier, it has a great history and I'd love to see this hotel be refurbished to its 1950's glory.

Room Tip: Rooms where pets are allowed have their own patios.

Had a get-together with old friends. We chose Aulanko as it would provide relaxation, nightlife and restaurants at one place. O'boy were we wrong. Whole hotel was very old, and not in a nice way idyllic etc. No, materials were worn out, and it felt like the place is barely holding it together. I booked 1st a one person room, as I was travelling alone. I changed room into 2 person room as I had company. Room they gave was the same, price just went up 35%. With friends, we wanted to have light drinks at the hotel bar, and had to wait 15mins before anyone came to serve us, at the bar. Spa was suprisingly small, but functional. Breakfast was a nightmare. There were seats for 100-150, which were all taken, and the buffee capacity readiness for 30 people. This resulted for continuous queing and missing food selections. When next time in Hämeenlinna, we will try something else.

Room Tip: If you like spending time at Spa, ask room close to spa, because walking distances are very, very, v...

First the good stuff - the hotel lies beautifully between a lake, golf course and fields and the spa is moderate size but quite nice with jacuzzi, one water slide, three saunas etc. Only the outside pool was a disappointment because of it's small size.
To fix that, we decided to go for a morning swim in the lake. Even though water was a bit muddy, this was very refreshing. We could not find stairs on either pier to climb up (not a problem - the water was so cold we literally jumped back up).
The hotel structure is like a labyrinth - without all the signs we would have not found the spa nor back to the rooms. The room was very standard and must have been restored not too long ago. Shower, minibar, twin beds, extra bed available from a chair. Bathrobe included.

There were plenty of meeting rooms, which implies it is a conference hotel. However, the restaurand did not seem ready for this. Our group of 30 had to wait for over 45 mins for pre-ordered meals. None of the waiters told us about the delay, and only let us help ourselves in the salad bar (not included in the a'la carte) when we asked for it after waiting for 40 mins.
The breakfast was ok, but not offer as much selection as some other scandinavian hotel chains.

There is really nothing that makes the hotel stand out from all others in Finland with spa. Great service could be a differentiator, but this time it did not happen.
