“Clean and quiet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

I stayed in a single room that was was clean and comfortable but small. The bathroom was tiny in that the shower and toilet were separated by a shower curtain.

The hotel is about 3 km from the ferry terminal and 2 km from the town center. As I did not have a car and public transportation was not available, I walked to the town center via the pedestrian path. A taxi cost about 10 euro for the 2 km into town.

Wi-Fi is expensive. 6 Euro for two hours. I was able to find a hotspot in the city center so I can't comment on the connection.

This was the 2nd time I stayed at the Strandnas Hotel in Mariehamn. I have been very pleased both times. The hotel is spotless and the rooms are quite large. There is a refrigerator and microwave on lower level.
The couple that run the reception are about as kind and service oriented as anyone could possibly be. Several times they guessed what I was going to ask before I could get the words out of my mouth.
Breakfast is adequate and there is a coffee maker in the dinning room area that one can use 24 hours a day.
The Strandnas is by far the best deal in town because it is a really good hotel at about half the price of other hotels in town.
Only drawback i can think of is that it is about 3 kilometers from the city center whereas other hotels are right in the center of town.
However, there is a FREE bus service that leaves and returns numerous times during the day to a bus station about 200 meters from the front door of the hotel.

Will not think twice when I come back to Aland. Will definitely stay here again.
Nothing fancy but very adequate and the price is right

Keep up the great work, Strandnas

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.
