In short time I visited hotel two times and had very pleasant staying. Stuff is very professional and can fulfill almost all of your request. Rooms can be a bit larger. Using small gym and sauna was good after work relaxing moments. Oscar's pub is very comfortable with arcade area for familiarising with your colleagues and/or business partners. Since I...

As a business traveller location is fine, factory just cross the road. Parking is free, wifi working well, hotel is clean. Everything works as should. But.... bathroom is outdated and quite small, breakfast is average. Doesn't worth the money, but you have no other choice.

Small city with very few tourist attractions, so adjust your expectations to the reality beforehand. No AC, no safe in room, no fridge, few TV channels are not working properly (unfortunately for foreigners, most of them are international ones), famous Varkaus factory is just few hundred meters away and sometimes it produces lots of smell (hardly the hotel's fault, though)....

A decent hotel at a reasonable price. We had a sauna room which was clean and adequately appointed. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice and had a good selection. A good Italian restaurant around the corner. An easy walk to the main shopping area of town.

Stayed there for 1 night on a business trip. We arrived late, but we were still able to get a few drinks in the pub next to the lobby. Hotel is clean, although the furniture is a bit outdated (but still functional ans clean).

Better than I expected. Hotel was nice surprise. In the city of Varkaus, there is nothing to see, but hotel was good. Staff of the hotel was really friendly and professional. It is possible to have a bicycle from the hotel. Room was spacious and modern. Good bed and bathroom, too. Breakfast offered selection of variety. Better than I expected.

There was a bedroom, living room, separate toilet and a bathroom with sauna. The second night we got allocated another room, the presidential suite. Whilst not renovated,...

This hotel is located very convienient for excursions into the Saimaa region and to Savonlinna. Be prepared for the view of the paper mill oppisite to the hotel: sometimes the air smells a bit foul because of the sulphur used there. But the rooms are spacious and in one part of the hotel very nice renovated, the staff is very...
