When I looked those comments - meny quite negative - here and at booking.com I decided to try to explain why summer hotel Rentukka was at least ok, as a matter of fact quite nice place for me. First of all, I have been living there when studying about five years so I know exactly what to expect. OK, ok,...

First of all after reading other comments, I want to make sure that everyone understand what summer hotel mean in Finland. It is open just in summer (usually June-August), other times there is students who live there. Because it is other times home for students, it is cheap hotel. So if you want better hotel, you should not look summer...

We booked a double room with kitchen for two nights. What we got was a very worn vacant student dorm room with three single beds, three large worn towels, a small table/desk and two vinyl chairs. The kitchen had a small stove with oven and fridge. No dishes or utensils and nothing to cook in. The place smells like a...

The temperature inside the room and on the hallways was very very high. The big window could not be opened, only a very small one that made no difference at all. The bathroom had no ventilation so during showers the air got very hot and steamy. Also, the fire escape stairs were extremely dirty. On the upside, the hotel is...

Luckily shower was better and beds rather good. Elevator was broken, other was often stucked open by regular inhabitants (student village). Breakfast was Fri-Sun served too late for spectators, on Thu we noticed...

This was the cheapest accomodation I could find in Jyvaskyla...and now I understand why! first of all making a reservation for someone that is not from Finland and does not speak Finnish (no offense, but I think the majority of the population) was already an odissey...I finally decided to call instead of writing (also because they were not answering) and...

This is an underperforming budget hotel, operating only summertime. It is located in a totally uninspiring suburb, and is not within walking distance from the city centre. The hotel facilities are from the 1970s and used as student flats in the winter. ↲We paid 64 euros for a double room, which is almost the same price as in one of...
