“Peaceful location with 70's style decor and terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

If you are looking for a hotel with forest and lake view but still about 3 kilometers from Tampere city center, this is a good option.

There is a beach, observation tower and summer theater of Pyynikki by walking distance.

Then reasons why I won't visit there anymore:
1) Harsh personnel, never experienced such an service attitude in Finland before.
2) Interior design is from 70's, renovation ongoing (July 14)
3) Processed food in the restaurant, It was not bad but not an experience either. Not worth to pay restaurant prices there. (Breakfast was ok though).

Room Tip: prefer a one with lake view and far from elevators.

This place - perfect for relaxing. Decent hotel, around nature, polite staff, clean rooms. Go to town on foot - far. But there is parking for cars.
There is a pool at the hotel - a bit coolish for us. Little old interior.
But Comfortable hotel located on nature background - I recommend it to everybody.

The hotel's location is great, but only if on trekking holiday - otherwise you're in the middle of anything. No services nearby and the very only place to dine is the hotel's hall-like restaurant, where some unkind waitresses serve factory made food.
We've never got such unfriendly service in any reception as we got here. The lady receptionist was more interest about her computer than us. And when we tried to checked out, it took a quarter, because the trainee couldn't split the bill and his supervisor wasn't willing to help him although we were the only clients at the desk. The facilities are OK, but the spirit from the services is missing. We can not honestly recommend this hotel to anyone

Room Tip: Try to get a top-floor room. The air conditioner doesn't cool you room enough, but at least you...

We had a standard room for a family of four. Sufficient but little extra space. The location is a bit on the outskirts but then again there is no noise from outside and the surroundings are fabulous. For a chain hotel I found the dinner better than you'd expect, the breakfast just very standard.

My wife agreed and unanimously we gave the votes of the Brussels jury: despite the pleasant staff and the nice nearby lake this hotel is easily the worst we have stayed in in a long time. And why? For one reason only: the windows in the room could't be opened - they were sealed. And the airco is not cold enough and only circulated warm air. On one side of the hotel (we were in room 336) the sun was so strong that it was unbearable to spend any time in the room (outside temperature 38C degrees). We woke up in drenched sleeping clothes every morning. That's how warm it was every night. The rooms are incredibly old-fashioned. The hotel feels and looks like a budget congress hotel and has an institutional feel to it - also in its design. It looks and feels tired. We had a conference, so we didn't make to much fuss as we were in the meeting rooms all day. Thankfully the staff were nice and helpful - especially in the bar and restaurant. The bar is drab and there is no outside seating area, apart from a unimaginative smokers area near the car park. Oh yes, part of the hotel is being renovated. Not soon enough. That means we didn't have to set the alarm as the drills started every morning promptly at 07.30.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room not on the sunny side with a really good airco

Avoid this hotel if you are looking for a place to sleep. All windows have been sealed and cannot be opened. And the air-conditioning does not work so you cannot breathe in the rooms. The result is a very unfortunate indoor climate that competely ruined my sleep. I was told by the reception that all the window handles had been taken off because they were from the late 1970'ies and out of order. The hotel should get the windows fixed before renting out rooms.to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room where you can open the windows - otherwise stay away.

We had a small meeting at the hotel. The meeting rooms were well equipped and clean. The hotel was pleasant and the breakfast was OK. Rooms were nice and clean but not brand new. The hotel is within (a bit longer) walking distance from the center of Tampere.
