Hotel is pretty near to the highway so we decided to make our stop here. We'd to wait a little while for the lady in the reception to emerge from her hide. She obviously wasn't thrilled to have few asking about discount room reservation. Service on reception, even on my standards, was cold and excessively slow. Room for three, which... More

Quite a large but comfortable stay with pleasant and peaceful rooms and offering fairly standard food. I was traveling with a group on a birding tour and was quite happy with my stay for three nights although I have to say it would not be a hotel I would pick if I was staying alone. An average hotel and an... More

We were unfortunate to arrive in Kuusomo on the day the Finns celebrate Midsummer - so everything in this small town was closed. At check in, we were also told the restaurant and bar in the hotel would close at 7pm. So our stay here became basically an overnight motel experience and I'm just glad we are moving on. As... More

Dear Moira670, That is so true that our town is a little bit quiet during Midsummer, although I heard on the news that it is becoming more common in Finland to spend also this holiday in cities as well. I am sorry on your behalf that your stay was unfortunate with this lack of services. Our hotel is situated in... More

Large modern hotel with lake behind. Thge room was fine and clean with a nice en-suite and was ideal for a couple of nights. The staff were very friendly and the buffet style dinner and breakfast were reasonable but not special. Kuusamo is in a lovely area and this was ideal for a short visit.
