    The room I stayed in was a bit tired and old, but was only £100 for the night, was not expecting much

    Good value for the money

    The hotel is located in the very city centre of Joensuu, close to everything. You get good value for your money. The breakfast buffet is really nice, and the restaurant in the cellar offers nice food for a decent price. The only negative thing is that my room was not made when I returned back to the hotel at 4 pm. The following day, the room was made at my return.

    Adequate

    The room was sparse but comfortable. No complimentary water in the room, which I always think is a nice touch for little expense. Comfortable bed, good shower. Little lacking in soul!

    A great place to stay

    The rooms were very comfortable and I got a good nights sleep. The staff on reception, in the restaurant, and cleaners were all professional and welcoming.My Finnish is not good at all and the receptionists, spoke good English and were a great help and very patient with any translation issues I had. The breakfast was ample, and the evening meal in the restaurant, was good. Would definitely stay here again.

    Tropiikki Joensuun keskustassa

    Erinomainen sijainti. Nuhjuinen, Scandic liimannut logonsa Cumulus logojen päälle ja that's it? Ilmanvaihto/ilmastointi rikki koko hotellissa? Huoneessa 24 astetta ja samasta asiasta valitti muitakin vieraita vastaanotolle.

    Nuhjuinen, huonot pysäköintimahdollisuudet. Aamupalahuone ahdas ja ruuhkainen. Hitellin sijainti vaikea löytää
