The Vaakuna is home away from home! The rooms are neat and clean. The staff is always friendly and do not hesitate to go out of their way to ensure that the guests' stay is as they expected. Being from overseas, they always offered help and advice where required. We even made a few friends (and we have always been told that it is uncommon for Finns)! The breakfasts just got better over the years. The renovation of the lounge area made a big change to the character of the hotel. I personally loved the previous "homey, down to earth" feeling, but I guess that the "new look" is far more trendy and in step with the modern times...

Room tip: King Superior, top floor, with a view of the lake

Visited here to attend company sales meeting as part of a bigger group. Very good food in the restaurant and great breakfast. Rooms were nice, but quite hot unfortunately. Upstairs sauna department was great and with a very nice view. Rooms were ready already in the morning when we arrived, which was a nice bonus. Easy to arrive both by train and by car.

This hotel is next to the lake. The 15’ walk to reach the city center offers a nice view on the lake and the city castle.
Standard rooms, good beddings, efficient WiFi and video.
As always in Finland, there’s a sauna.
The most remarkable feature of this hotel is the breakfast buffet, offering a large choice of quality products.
Good prices.

Location by the lake, not far from the railway station. Modern hotel of good quality. The room was quite small but recently renovated. Very good lunch and breakfast. The hotel is suitable for meetings and seminars.
