“Peaceful, but central location”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Jahtihovi has several good things:
+ peaceful surroundings, but close enough to the center
+ room was very clean
+ beds were pleasant, even if separate
+ breakfast was good, nothing particular, but worked well
We had very bright room and big windows, but this was likely due to corner location and I guess other rooms might not have such big windows.
Hotel seemed to have two kind of rooms, ours was from the more modern side. It seemed they were renovating the original side currently (spring 2012)
Oh, and parking was also free (warm garage would have been something like 7€ / night)

Reviewed 30 July 2011

Stayed 2 nights, in what looks like the new wing of the hotel. The hotel is now in the Finlandia group. The room was very new, clean, with modern furniture. Internet included. We booked a room with a small kitchen and a private sauna attached to the bathroom which we really liked. A small luxury but not really that expensive. The hotel offers free parking in the backyard or in a garage indoors but since everybody travels by car if you arrive late you may find that the parking spaces are full. They will however try their best to accommodate your car. Also a good thing is that for a small fee they will take care of your laundry. Just leave the bunch of clothes with the reception staff and they will use their washing machines and return them to you the following day. As we are traveling for extended periods this service was very much appreciated. The breakfast was good with reasonable selection. Only the breakfast room looks a bit dark in the old part of the building. You can also have meals there but since we had a small kitchen we had our meals in the room or in nearby restaurants. We had a pleasant quiet stay and would recommend it for its central location and comfort.

Room Tip: Stay in the new wing in a room with hyour private sauna

I stayed for one night in the second floor.

The hotel (or guesthouse) is really nothing special, the rooms are a bit worn out and the services are nothing extra. I tried the sauna - it was not a too good experience compared to average Finnish saunas. Breakfast room is next to the front door - not at all a quiet place.

Pros: nice and quiet location near the beautiful harbor. Easy to go jogging.

This is our second time here. We are a family of 8 that had 3 rooms. Our stay was in July 2008. www.jahtihovi.com

My husband and I stayed here before and liked the hotel, the location and if you are not there on a weekend, it is the cheapest restaurant to eat in in town, almost. This time it was the weekend so we had to look elsewhere.

Rooms are simple but clean and very serviceable. No refrig. Hot water and water pressure was fine. We did have a problem with one room. I had asked for a family room for 4 people and ended up with a double room with 2 cots squeezed in. Very crowded. I went and spoke to the front desk very nicely and they were very helpful. They were full that weekend but they did offer us an apartment for the same price. However since it was up by the main square, about a 10 minute walk, we declined it. I greatly appreciated that even tho we didn't take advantage of it.

They do have a public computer down in their little lobby which is free to use. They also have a little lounge area where you can sit and have a beer from the bar etc. They have a small diningroom where breakfast/dinner is served. Breakfast is included and again a Finnish breakfast with more than enough hot and cold food to eat. They also have a sauna. Will also do your laundry for 3 euros/load BUT no dryers so they have to dry on racks. Therefore, you need to be there for at least 2 nights to take advantage of this. Also, they don't do wash on weekends. But there are laundromats in town as well.

There is no elevator.

The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful at all times.

It was about a pleasant 10 minute walk to the main square and about the same to the waterfront where we took a cruise of the islands for 90 minutes. It was a pleasant cruise but again the weather wasn't cooperating.

The last time we were there it was in June. That is when Kuopio hosts the International Dance Festival. That is something to be a part of. People dance all over the town. On the streets, on the stage in the main square etc. We enjoyed it sooo much. This time in July they had their big International Wine Festival. Agentinian wines(great wines). We did not partake as to get in was very expensive then you still had to pay. Music, wine, food etc. From the sounds of it it was a big hit!

My husband and I like this little town also. You can walk everywhere. The old section of town is a nice place to walk to also. Also go to the Pujio Tower as well.

We totally enjoyed our stay and when we travel to Finland again, we will stay there again.
