Strandnas Hotel
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Mariehamn
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Clean modern rooms with lots of space. Good service and breakfast. The surroundings are quiet as the hotel is a little bit off the center of Mariehamn. Most of the hotels in Mariehamn are quite old and some even a bit dodgy, so it was nice to find that this hotel wasn't. There is an Italian ice cream place just next to the hotel and the best supermarket in Åland, Sparhallen, is close-by.

I liked the service-minded staff, perfectly clean rooms and quiet surroundings.
Otherwise there was no special charm but it was absolutely very good mid-range hotel for overningt stay.
Good location if you have a car, free parking.
A little limited breakfast-choice. Hard-boiled eggs, porridge, bread, cheese, ham, cereals. But you don´t need to starve anyway.

There are a lot of positives about this place and only a couple of niggles. I personally found this to be an excellent place to stay. On the positive side, Strandnäs is spotlessly clean, the rooms are large, the beds comfortable and the welcome at reception is very friendly and professional - the lady who welcomed us spoke fluent Finnish, English and Swedish. The hotel is functional, practical and there is good access for those with limited mobility. We found the rooms good value for money at 80 euros. Apart from the beds there is also a seating area and the bathroom was spotless. The hotel is 2km from the town centre but this is no problem at all if you have a car and parking is free. What the hotel lacks is any individual "charm". It is practical rather than cosy but it does what it does really well. I would not go there for a romantic break, but would definitely recommend it for any other kind of stay. Breakfast is included with the room price. The breakfast room was bright and airy but the food itself was moderate - two cereals, porridge, bread, cheese and other toppings and orange juice. Other than that though I was very satisfied by the price, the accommodation and the service and have no hesitation in recommending this place to other travellers.

Nothing fancy, but good basics. Clean room, comfy bed, average breakfast, location is ok if you have a car. Good option when you have a budget.
Service was ok, other than all items seemed to run out on breakfast, 3-4 people tried to bring more plates, forks, tomatoes, bread, milk, boiled eggs and so on.
At reception the service was friendly, but when asking about the sights, there were not so many tips which places would be nice to visit.

Room Tip: take a room from second floor, or you will be in the street-level having your curtains on all the ti...

I stayed a couple of nights in March 2012 and rented a car. I guess if you visit Aland it's best to either rent a car or a bike, otherwise you'll see close to nothing. Anyone who complaints about this hotel being too far from the centre of Mariehamn probably doesn't have a car or bike. And central Mariehamn is crap anyway.
But this hotel is not: it offers airy and clean rooms, with heating, tv, bathroom and good beds. Friendly services and good breakfast. As I was travelling solo, it's always more expensive for a room per person, but I just payed over €50, which is a very good deal.
Overall, pleaseantly surprised with this hotel.

This hotel was very clean, reasonably priced and included a good breakfast. It's not in the center of town (Mariehamn), about 2 km north of town, but if that's not important, this is a great choice. It's an easy bike ride or walk down the bike path into town. Additionally, there is a great ice cream and dessert place next door, which made the stay here even better. The staff at the hotel is exceptional and very accomodating. We are planning a return trip.

This nice hotel is situated 2 kilometers from the downtown of Mariehamn. The distance is not too much for a frisk walk, and you also get the peace and quiet that you wouldn't get in the heart of the town.

The service is friendly and helpful, you will get service at least in Swedish and Finnish. I don't know about the English service as I didn't need to use English there. However, their webpages are only in Swedish.

The hotel is very clean and rooms are comfortable. There is even one room suited for people with limited mobility. It's located on the 2nd floor and you can access it with an elevator.

The hotel price includes breakfast but there are no other restaurant services within the hotel. However, just next door is an Italian ice-cream bar that also serves snacks such as baguettes so that helps a bit.

We stayed for three nights and the price (77e / night for a double room during the summer season) was very reasonable. The price is a bit lower during winter months.

Free parking in front of the hotel is also a big plus!
