Arrived in the middle of the night from Helsinki that the hotel were informed but been told that the room was NOT ready until check-in time the next day!!! Eventually they provided a twin room that was so small that my wife and I had to give way to each other to pass through. We found that the price EUR144.00... More

The location of the hotel is excellent. It is at the center of the city next to the train station. Service was good and breakfast versatile. Rooms adequite and staff friendly. Only thing not working was the car parking. The hotel advertises a car parking option. We paid the car park for the whole stay (5 days). We used our... More

I can very much recommend this hotel, which is luxurious and friendly and has a great location in the heart of the charming and bustling Finnish city of Jyvaskyla. The hotel is only about a three-minute walk from Jyvaskyla railway station, which is across the road from the hotel. I stayed there with a friend in separate rooms for four... More

In typically Finnish fashion everything about the hotel works perfectly. The room is a model of modern Nordic design and extremely comfortable, only slight peeve is the fact the window does not open The location is central and just a hop to the station and all sights and shopping etc. Highly recommended!

This hotel is a safe choice. Everything works: rooms are clean and well-equipped, service is friendly and professional, breakfast is abundant and tasty (except the coffee). In addition, the hotel is well situated in the city center just in front of the railway/bus station. On the other hand, there is no personal character in this hotel, thus, it leaves no... More

Our stay was perfectly comfortable, and I would likely stay there again if I was in Jyvaskyla for the convenient location. The staff was friendly, breakfast was good, room was a good size (king size bed, couch, desk). The room was not that clean upon arrival- a bit dusty, and there was an empty bottle of champagne hiding behind a... More

Standard Sokos-hotel with great access to the city, railway station with large parking facilities. Friendly staff. During our stay lift broke down and during the morning only stairs were available, in the evening the neighboring Sokos-restaurant (same building) had spare lift in use.

The location of this hotel is excellent. It's close to the train station and the shopping area. It's also close to the local bus stops. Our room was small but comfortable. The window opened so the temperature was pleasant. The only problem was that the shower drained all over the bathroom floor. The daily breakfast was delicious with many choices.... More
