I will not recommend the untidy and expensive rooms of Vuorilinna to anybody. The price per room (140 €/night) suggests there's a lot to expect, but the "hotel" offers no amenities. The rooms were barely cleaned up. There was a bag full of rubbish left on the balcony and the floor was not even vacuumed. The breakfast was very simple.... More

Very nicely situated on an island with other hotels and a theatre but only a few minutes walk from the railway station and town centre. Not strictly a hotel as the rooms are used by students and the nearby hotel takes charge of running them as a commercial venture during the summer. Checked in via the main hotel reception, the...

Pretty much everything is said here in TripAdvisor already. It's a student dormitory building which is turned into a summer hotel every summer. The rooms are small and simple but have stoves and fridges. The beds are actually pretty bad. Casino hotel is serving as the reception and the staff there is really friendly. They also serve decent breakfast. Considering... More

This is not a hotel: it's a student flat let out at hotel prices in the summer, when accommodation is at a premium in Savonlinna. If one is aware of this, the accommodation is perfectly reasonable - basic but functional. My en-suite flat was spacious and clean, with two single beds, a desk, cupboards and shelving, a fully-functional kitchen with... More

Stayed during the Savonlinna Opera Festival for 136 euros. This is expensive for the quality of the accommodation, but considering the festival in town, slightly understandable. A basic room with kitchenette and fairly old linens, but a large room nonetheless with a large bathroom. Breakfast at the adjacent Best Western Casino complex was good, albeit busy. Parking was an issue... More

Location is okay, closeby railway station. But basically evertthing in Savonlinna is closeby. Room was spacious but without any feeling. More like a student room with kitchen without kitchenware.
