    Friendly staff, nice rooms and a perfect location near "everything"!

  • Single

    Very nice staff, nice view over the city from a high floor. Good spa facilities but water in the swimming pool was too cold.

    Noise from the industrial plant which is just vis-a-vis.

  • Single

    Rooms

    The breakfast could offer better bread rolls because they were too small and hard.

  • Single
    6.2

    Nice hotel location a litlle bit old style from the 80s

    But very noisy on Saturday with the nightclub (I was located on the 8th floor and the nightclub in the basement was very noisy!)

  • Single
    7.4

    Nice hotel in the middle of the city

    Rather "agressive" behaviour of the reception desk trying to convince me to upgrade my booking and trying to convince me to have the dinner in one of the hotel restaurant.

  • Single
    8.8

    Very close to the city center. Room was pretty wide and with modern and nice furniture. My room had a very nice view over the river. Excellent breakfast. I also had a dinner at the restaurant: a little bit too fancy and expansive, but there was also a pub.

    The parking is underground but pretty expansive

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Excellent location, beautiful views from the upper floors, very friendly staff. All in all a very pleasant experience.

    Not so impressed with the food at the hotel's Tex-Mex restaurant; overpriced for the quality of fast food.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Nice athmosphere, excellent beds.

    Hmm, since hotel was quite expensice they should clean also spider net from the corner of the window :)

  • Couple
    7.4

    Good location in the city centre, walking distance to all interesting places. Excellent breakfast and lovely room decor. My room was overlooking the rapids and city centre, excellent view at night.

    Room for improvement in housekeeping since our bed could have been made better and the floor mopped properly... or maybe it was not mopped.

  • Single
    9.6

    thumbs up! I have really enjoyed my staying here. Very quiet and spacious room, excellent selection of food for breakfast, free wi-fi, professional and helpful staff, good location close to transport and city center. Pity I could not find time to try the swimming pool.

  • Couple
    8.2

    Absolutely unique service, staff very friendly. Restaurant in topclass!

  • Single
    8.8

    Good central location, good service, nice and spacious room.

  • Single
    9.6

    Sauna is nice, breakfast very generous.

    Internet access is very unpractical, the web page does not support storing of passwords - thus you have to reenter it again and again... Price differed from the one booked (extra 30eur charged when checking out - I found out too late).

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The hotel is well positioned, closed to every city spot. It is very clean and services ( restaurants, bars ) are quite good. Breakfast is excellent and very various. Check out time is very good, extended to 12 pm, thus matching to a larger number of necessities ( a lot of flights from Tampere are departing in the evening ). The staff is very professional.

  • Single

    Position was good

    Room very dirty and no way to have some hot milk for breakfast.
