This hotel is a historical hotel, a castle like building. Unfortunately the hotel is little bit worn inside. The rooms could need renovation, especially the bathroom. At first I got single room. It was so small that I asked for another room. This new one was big. The hotel stuff was very helpful. I had a dinner in the restaurant.... More

Good location, good breakfast, ok gym, nice surroundings etc. however, the rooms (in the "nee part" are starting to feel a bit old and need to be refurbish quite soon. The door in the shower was water damaged, some stains etc. however, the hotel is not expensive and I definitely thinks it's worth the money

Had the opportunity to stay on the Castle side of the property and thoroughly enjoyed it. My room was decent size with a double bed. It was clean and comfortable. It shows a little wear and tear, but that blends in with a building built some 100 years ago. Staff is very friendly. Buffet breakfast is good.

I would have given more points, if our room had been on the original side of the hotel. But unfortunately, we were given a room on the new(ish) building which was nice, but nothing special. It was just a hotel room with no special character or amenities. Decent beds, rather large room but just a little dirty. Curtains were stained... More

This place is full of history. Gladly it is still filling it's original purpose. Rooms are tidy and cozy and just a bit oldfashioned. Spend at least a night in the old part of hotel (Linna) if visiting Imatra or surroundings

It certainly looks a fantasy hotel with the River Vuoksi running past, today, the inside looks a little tired! Our room was quite comfortable with an entry passage which was quite large leading to a lounge area with settee, TV and mini bar. There was also a door leading to a small balcony with room for only two chairs. Double... More

The hotel seems to be having some sort of crisis of management and there's a lack of attention to detail that makes what could be a great hotel somewhere I will never go back to and would not recommend. For example, we stayed two nights this July and while our room was madeup between nights no one bothered to make... More

I spent one night in this hotel, one part is a castle with a beautiful garden and trees all around. Good restaurant, sauna and gym available. Clean and quiet rooms. Wifi also available.Great parking available. International breakfast. In the wintertime it would be very suggestive.

What a wonderful castle-like building at the Vuoksi rapids - allows you to expect luxury, when you enter the hotel. However, one of the best suites was somewhat a disappointment. Hot summer day and no air conditioning, not able to open the windows, as they were obviously painted shut (hotel maid could not open them either). The extra bed in... More

The hotel is very good but there were some defects which we didn’t like. + Our room was comfortable, spacious (even for 3 persons), stylish and cosy.
