We stayed in this hotel on a two-night weekend break. The hotel has a warm garage, which is quite spacious and easy to drive in and out, all of which are nice attributes in cold wintertime. Although, getting from the garage to the reception involves three elevators and several corridors and turns because the hotel is situated in two buildings...

3 days visit in Kuopio and in the hotel Puijonsarvi. Peaceful hotel, between the railway station and the market place. Good breakfast but in the weekend difficult to find sitting place for breakfast. In the breakfast there are many different newspapers to read. Excellent food in the restaurant in the evening. Good service. The price for the room is little...

Good service, ok rooms, saunas and gyms available. Rooms would need a face lift. Great beds, not too soft. There is also a lot parking space which is not overpriced. Basic breakfast, nothing too fancy.

Our room was newly renovated in shades of pink & white and it was very stylish and clean. The hotel is surprisingly big, and our room was in another building, yet connected to the main building through a tunnel. This hotel met our expectations, and the room decoration even exceeded them. There is a spacious parking behind the hotel with...

Sokos Hotel Puijonsarvi is one of my favourites of Sokos Hotels in Finland. The main reason is, that the hotel is renewed and the staff is quite often able to upgrade room type for frequent visitors. Also the location is great. The Hotel has gone through renovations and the new rooms are very modern and fresh. I recommend always to...

I will definitely come back here to stay the next time I visit. The hotel is has two main buildings which is separated by a street. It isn't a big deal even if you will need to walk around a bit to get to your room. Service is good and the hotel restaurants serve up very decent food indeed. For...

I enjoy to stay in this hotel. Good location if you want to walk to the harbor or shops. Easy to go for jogging as well. I really like the breakfast room staff. They are so nice and friendly. They always smile and say good morning. Good feeling for the whole day.

Neat and tidy in good location. No onsite restaurant or bistro. Need to go up the street to a bistro for breakfast even though included in price. The lake is just down the street and the centre and church about 10 mins walk
