Very good 8,0
An excellent location gives a smiley face. The hotel was also peaceful and very clean. The breakfast buffet was modest.

Good but not the best.
Nice clean Hotel, although age is starting to show up at the premises. Poll and sauna at hotel. Room was clean and quiet, but with 2 kids there was not a lot of room. The hotel is little off the city centre, about 20 minutes walk away. Rentable scooters at hotel. 4.90 euro / 30 minutes. A little expensive considering the age of the hotel but good stay. Breakfast was a rich buffee table.

Peaceful place by the lake
Lovely room with a lake view. Nice surroundings for walks by the lake and 10min walk to city center. Good breakfast but we did miss having fresh fish in the breakfast table. Friendly staff.

Clean and warm
Nice, clean hotel with very friendly staff, close to the city and not far from Kuopio University, food was good and staff speak very good English.The hotel has a small indoor pool, sauna and a Jacuzzi. There is a small gym as well but I didn`t use it. Good running areas near by close to the lake, then continues into a green area.

Quiet location by nice lake
Decent hotel about 20 minutes walking distance from the city center. The hotel has a path in the back alongside a nice lake also seen from breakfast room. Breakfast is good. Hotel room was fair size. No-frills bathroom has everything you need. Staff is pleasant. Gym is decent.
