What I really liked was the location by the Lake. Beautiful. Surrounded by nature. Nice to stay right next to the City center so all the hub is close by but still a bit on the side so the noise isnt bothering. Also easy to come there with a car. Clean Rooms. Excellent breakfast. Beautiful View. Friendly Staff. For Sure... More

We stay at this hotel when travel in Finland and farther. Calm place, excellent breakfast and good choice to spend time in Kuopio especcially in summer! Recommend to visit The Tower of Puhjo and restaurant there, also you can have a good shopping in Ikea and Matkus near Kuopio! Enjoy your stay!

Very nice rooms, newly refurnished. But remember to ask your room to be far from the elevators! I've been a few times at the hotel Scandic Kuopio and this eas the first time that my room was situated beside the elevator. Very disturbing during the two days I was there. The swimming pool was nice. Sauna and the shower are... More

More than average hotel for business and leisure. Everything works and service was friendly. Meeting services were appropriate and hotel room nicely decorated (ladylike room) I liked to 1990's style :) I had the lift near my room and thus had some quict humming in my room when ever it was used.

The service was very good and personal. I requested a room with a lake view, which was excellent. We spent quite a lot of time just on the balcony and admiring Kallavesi. The most surprising thing was the room, which was the best decorated scandic I have ever seen.Great details, instead of the normal clean box furniture. Yes, it is... More

It was very nice to come back to this hotel after 6 years and find out the hotel has been renewed and interiors of the room were very nice indeed. Pool was nice and outdooring would have been great but the weather was not that good at this time of year. Recomended hotel for anyone visiting Kuopio.
