I would certainly recommend this hotel even if it is not at all fancy and the rooms are in several motel-like buildings. The view from the window in the morning makes it all. The bed is comfortable, toilet s basic, breakfast is basic, but all is clean and ok. But with the stuff you get a genuine Aki Kaurismäki feeling:-) Absolutely no smile, no service, no talk unless you ask clearly. And I am Finnish, I can only guess it is more so with other nationalities.

Viitasaari is not one of those towns I would consider as attractions. So there is not much to choose from if you want to lay your head there for the night. But do not overlook Pihkuri. The rooms are good. Service is good. Food is a little this and that but not bad at all.
It seems that there are regular users at the hotel. I could see that there are regulars in the bar and night club.

You might want to try the sauna by the lake. And there are a couple of boats to use too.

Strange hotell, buildings seemed a bit Soviet era, but the interior decoration was up to date. First room we got wasn't too clean however, and we were given another room. This room was at the end of the building, and with a cozy window in the shower, opposite a similar window in the building next to it. Strange. Comfortable beds. Good breakfast. There was a power cut during breakfast, and the receptionist didn't seem to be bothered much.

First thing that met us, was a poster informing of us of "Erotic Nights" being hosted at the hotel a few weeks later. Looked like a 70'ies soft porn show. Not too family friendly. I'd stay again though.

People claim the view is so great here, but seriously - ther was no view. Too many trees blocking the view of the lake.

I did not expect much from this hotel beforehand because it seemed old and out-of-the-way but was pleasantly surprised - it seems somebody puts an effort into keeping a certain standard in this establishment. The service was also friendly - I met two nice women, one of whom seemed to work in the evenings and one who worked in the mornings. Both checked always that everything was alright.
The hotel has several buildings - one with the restaurant and others with rooms. There's even a lakeside sauna which is heated everyday. The restaurant has some nice furniture and a beautiful view on the lake.
My room was on 'street level' which means that it was upstairs and had a balcony - those downstairs had to descent stairs down and they had a terrace on ground level. I would not have felt so safe there but all in all my stay was peaceful and pleasant. I stayed two nights and slept better than in many other hotels - it was quiet and warm in the room. It was clean and had all the essentials - even a small minibar.
The breakfast was at least as good as in many more expensive hotels - there were different cutlets, joghurt, porridge, some fresh fruit, cereal and a tasty omelette. Loose leaf tea was a nice bonus! I think this is the first hotel breakfast where I have ever seen vitamin tablets offered!!
Somebody seems to have noticed that there are different people as travelers who need a place to stay - not just sturdy men who want to eat lots of meat.. I even tried their restaurant a la carte - and got some nice vendace served with some vegetables - it was a bit greasy and some of the vegetables were a bit on the raw side - but all in all it was a pleasant experience. The price was right - 86€ per night for one person. I'd definitely stay again, even if the internet connection did not work from my room, and even if the hotel is a bit away from the centre - if you do not have your own vehicle you need a taxi to get their, if you have any luggage. In the summer this must be a lovely place.

Room Tip: I'd stay 'street-level' - it's probably more safe and quiet than downstairs.

They seem to have a lot of musical entertainment in the evenings, good bands visiting... I spent one night in a comfortable room with my dog and the breakfast was good and tasty too. The staff is frendly, always checking that everything is ok. The view over the lake is nice and I guess the sauna would be a good experience too with swim in the lake or frozen lake in the winter.
