This is not a cheap hotel and has three stars but in the UK would be lucky to have 1. We stayed in a supposedly double room but one which was obviously constructed as a single as the head board was down a wall but our single beds were underneath a drafty window - glad it wasn't winter as the...

Definitely a bad experience and far much expensive for what it is. the water from the shower took the entire night to drain and in the morning the bathroom was still like a swimming pool. TV remote control was not working, quite bad wifi; staff not very helpful. Breakfast was also not satisfactory. Porvoo is very little so it`s not...

The hotel has a central position, 2 minutes walk from the bus station and the old town. The size of the room is correct and there is a courtesy tray. What is surprising for me, because the price is not cheap, is that the room is only cleaned once a week and you have to ask for it. There is...

This place is excellent if you don't need any extreme luxury in your stay. Simple, clean, cheap, great location. Parking place downstairs. Absolutely no complaints what so ever but it is not the most romantic place ever. Price and quality are match made in heaven here.

I firstly want to say that I think very carefully before berating or criticising a business.I am not hot headed and consider the implications before I speak.But..... This hotel was nothing short of appalling.I appreciate that the cost of living in Finland is far higher than in the UK Nevertheless this hotel was about £100 a night. It is situated...

We were attending a wedding in Porvoo and required a room. Even though rooms had been set aside for guest, the hotel had no knowledge of the rate and no no knowledge of the reservations. The WiFi did not work at first. Assistance at the desk was poor. Finally able to get the WiFi to work. Parking was another special...

The location is very good - the hotel is in the center of the town and a few minute's walk from the Old Town and the Cathedral of Porvoo. Many shops and restaurants very close. The room was functional, and the bathroom/shower was good. The hotel was apparently slightly understaffed, with only one person handling both the reception and the...

The hotel is right next to the bus station, so the location is very convenient. The beautiful old town is a small walk away. There is a restarurant/bar across the street and there are excellent restaurants within walking distance. The room had sticky floors and the bathroom hadn't been cleaned very well. Breakfast is very basic. The hotel's decor is...
