In my room windows were in bad condition. My window was actually open : When I told about this in reception I was first given window key and asked to close it ! ok : I hardly succeeded to close the window but It was still partly open because frame was so twisted. Finaly I got new room but the window frame was almost in same condition but at least closed.Hotel should change the windows because of wind and noise coming from busy highway.

Room was clean and decent. bed was good. Breakfast was decent.
There seems to be free gym, sauna and even swimming pool.
Despite of old windows I would choose this hotel again : it is basic and little bit worned but room and breakfast are actually quite decent.

First, I got a room that was not cleaned at all. The staff apologized. I just got a new room.
I am somewhat allergic to dust. Because my eyes and my throat was reacted in some way during my stay, In the morning I checked the bathroom air exchange valve, it had accumulated dust on the surface as well as the channel. When they have been cleaned?

This ceramic tile box contains smallish flavorless rooms with non opening windows and a tasteless restaurant. Everything is as average as possible,
Basically there is nothing wrong nor badly, but the spirit is missing.
Personnel is helpful and most friendly, though we didn't find us as Scandic members. Where do you need a profile if it is not followed.
Breakfast is well served and fresh.

The hotel restaurant was actually a positive surprise. Eventhough the service was a bit slow, the taste and quality of the food was good. Service was also friendly. TV picture quality in the room was actually very good compared to normal hotel room TVs which tend to be utter garbage. You could also fit a bottle of sparkling wine in the fridge.

The overall look and feel in the hotel is wornout and oldfashioned. Furniture and carpets are quite hideous and rooms are relatively plain. Our room was also quite cold despite turning up the heater to maximum level. Beds & pillows were uncomfortable and there was a lot of noise early in the Saturday morning from the road next to the hotel.

I stayed in the hotel with my wife in a junior suite (with a sauna). A junior suite is essentially two normal rooms combined, still having two bathrooms and two outside doors. The room was clean and quiet, but had overall very cold and odd feeling to it. Furniture was simplistic and didn’t seem to fit the room too well, minibar had very little options. Walls had old close-up photographs of people doing winter sports. Building itself has some kind of a soviet times feeling to it.

Restaurants opening times are bad, but luckily city center is close enough and there are plenty of good food options there. Lobby bar is less of a bar or a lobby, more of a reception with on-the-side sales counter. Breakfast was average, service was good overall.

The room wasn’t expensive, so I’d guess the hotel and the room matched or were only little below the expectation. But if you are looking for a nice hotel experience or to stay on the prime spot on the city, look elsewhere.

I stayed in Scandic Lahti last winter and I have to say I was disappointed with it. Price was kind of high and quality wasn't that high even though breakfast was excellent and suite had a nice sauna. Pool area was ok but pool could have been a bit bigger in my opinion. And the water was pretty cold.

So, the hotel itself was ok but the customer service was something I was really disappointed with. There was this one receptionist who was very rude to me and other customers. There were some nice people working in the hotel but this one really made me feel bad. I also sent an e-mail to the hotel but I had to wait for the answer for over a month. That sucks!! The other major bummer was the "bar". Actually there was no such a thing. "The bar" consisted of two small tables and maybe ten bottles. It was located in the hall next to the reception and I didn't feel very comfortable drinking there.

I recommend this hotel to you who don't care about good and friendly service.

This is a typical Scandic hotel, which is a little bit old fashioned and worn out. The layout and furniture are like from the "old good times", some 30 years ago. The location is good: next to the train station. The service and staff are very good. I can recommend this hotel for business overnight.
