We had a pleasant stay again. Service was great and especially enjoyed the swimming pool and sauna. Breakfast was good and had lots of variety. We were travelling with our dog and the hotel had organised him a bed and a goodie pack.

Room had everything you could want, and the eye for details in every aspect (look, feel, storage space, lighting) was second to none, making you feel very comfortable and at home in the room. Breakfast excellent, relaxed atmosphere all around.

Nice reception staff with efficient way of working. Checking in was friendly and fast. Room ok, forgot to adjust the temperature so a bit hot. Standard pillows too high for my taste. Breakfast average. Parking hall with very narrow parking slots.

The hotel looks like an 80's top of the line, now a very good 4 stars hotel. The breakfast is at "Amarillo" restaurant next to the lobby, very well served, buffet style with several choices including the famous Tampere blood sausage! We got a room on the 10th floor with an amazing view and pretty roomy for Europe's standards. There...

I know it is a bit outdated but this hotel has certain charm, maybe just because of this. The rooms are nice and functional, and at least I have always had a nice view. Their is a pool and a spa bath, and often you get them all for yourself. Breakfast is very good, wonderful omelettes made to order.

I visit the hotel quite often on business. It is very average to me. The staff is very friendly but the facilities are a bit dated. I am so bored of foor in Amarillo but breakfast works for me just fine with fresh omelettes. I would not visit in special occations.

A hotel at a central location in the city. Short distances to everywhere. Best bars and night clubs within 5min walk from the hotel. Nice shopping center just next door. Breakfast probably the best in town and restaurants really good. From the rooms higher up in the hotel you have a really nice view over the city.
