The positives were the friendly staff and proximity to the streetcar stop. The negatives: the room was SMALL, as in I had to put my suitcase on the bed to open it all the way. It wouldn't have been as bad if the room was clean. It wasn't. There were what looked like burn marks or tar on the bed... More

Hello! I'm sad to hear you would not recommed our hotel, but thank you for giving us important feedback. Our single rooms are very small, twin and superior rooms are bigger and that's why I would recommend booking those. I'm sorry our breakfast didn't have enough options and that there were negligences in your room. We'll try our best to... More

Cumulus Kallio is in the very hipster-friendly Kallio neighborhood, quite a ways from city center. There are many tram stops nearby, however, there are not a lot of attractions, points of interests, or even nice restaurants in this area. There are quite a few hipster-filled bars, though. We had no reservation, but saw ads online for rooms in the €100... More

Hello! Thank you for the detailed review of our hotel and giving insight to our possible future customers. It's true, the second floor rooms are more modern as they were recently renovated. And no, we aren't located at the city centre so there isn't really any sightseeing in here, but a 15 minute tram ride takes you to the centre... More

Nice location and good value for the money. The room and beds were comfortable and everything worked just fine. The breakfast was actually quite nice with a good variety of things available and a very attentive staff. The location is very near one of the tram stops that serves multiple lines. With an eight euro pass you can go anywhere... More

The hotel is not exceptional, but it's good enough for a couple of nights. The location is quite good, but I was with a car, so it really doesn't matter. i have seen that there are stops for public transportation just in front of the hotel, across the road. The breakfast is quite expensive.

There is direct tram line to city center. The tram stop is conveniently at front of hotel. Ask the room highest floor on the street / Brahe field side. From there it is excellent view to the park and Kallio. Well kept, clear budget/middle range hotel. Limited restaurant services: only breakfast. Hotel is warm also wintertime.

The hotel was nice, clean and close to many things (trams, food places and parks). The staff were friendly and willing to help, which was great.
