“Good Hotel in Mariehamn”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013

In the context of a small Finnish resort town, Hotel Cikada is a good hotel. It is very close to the water, near the ferry terminal, but also walking distance from the center of town. It has a nice outdoor deck and pool. Our room looked out on the harbour and the museum ship Pommern.

The hotel itself reminded me of a cross between Ibis and an American Motel 8. Our room had wooden furniture, twin beads, very simple bathrooms, soap/shampoo dispensers rather than little bottles lined up on the sink. It was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the staff very friendly and accommodating. We had to cancel our third night and they refunded the prepaid cost.

Breakfast was minimal but adequate: Juices, coffee, cereal, eggs, sausage, sliced cheese, breads. The breakfast area, long tables reminiscent of a camp settng, becomes a restaurant and bar in the evening. There are a few steps to the entrance, but a ramp that was not assembled yet when we were ther in mid April. Free, fast wi. This is a pretty reasonably priced choice in a fairly pricy little town.

This rather dull but functional and cheap hotel offers OK rooms and breakfast without charm and lack of more than the most necessary comfort. The location is also OK. Advantages are the outdoor and indoor swimming pools. I would say that you may find it OK for one or two nights if your demands are modest but hardly more.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the pool and restaurant area and avoid the rear of the hotel where rooms had...

Fairly clean rooms, a nice view from the balcony and a very short walking distance to both the ferry and the museo ship Pommern. Everything's from the 70's, but the prices are also very reasonable. The breakfast was just enough, not too grand, and we had to ask for the rolls twice to have some, but all in all for a one night's stay it was alright. I enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere and found the staff friendly and helpful. Not a three-star hotel, but easily a three-star hostel.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 days last summer with my family. The rooms were simple and the furniture and decoration was old and cheap. The hotel had a nice pool which made or stay great. Nice patio area to have a beer or two if it is warm. The location was good, very close to the ferry and a walking distance to the center of the city.
For me this Cicada is more like the motels in the USA than a hotel. If you are fine with that, this is a good choce.

Stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. My room had twin beds and a balcony. The furniture, as well as, the bed linen and covers wer dated but the room was clean. The hotel lacks air conditioning so it can be quite hot in the summer.

The hotel has an outside pool and terrace. Also, the location of the hotel is ok. The breakfast buffet has a very limited selection.

If you're looking for a basic and inexpensive hotel, this is the one for you.

Room Tip: Noisy rooms on the courtyard side of hotel

Åland is a very nice place to visit, and the people are friendly. Try to choose another place to stay though. The Cikada is run by a person who lacks even the smallest hint of a service-mind. We showed up for breakfast Sunday morning, at 7 o´clodk in order to make the ferry home. "No breakfast if you haven´t ordered in advance, it is served at 8 on Sundays." the manager informed us. He claimed to have informed us three days earlier which wasn´t the case. I suggested we could agree that we disagreed on the information-part, but expected some kind of solution. The answer from the manager sums it up - "There is nothing to be had for you!". Not a good start for a long day, and not the best way to end our one, and definitely only stay at Cikada.

This hotel is one of the cheapest hotels in Mariehamn - due to this Hotel Cikada is good value for money. I stayed in a double room (twin beds) and had a balcony. The room was dated but was clean and functional. The location is good if you are catching the ferry. It is just a few minutes walk down the same road. Nice view from my room over looking the front. When i stayed there was buliding work going on across the road so at 7am i was woken by digger noise, but if you are leaving early it wouldn't make much of a difference.
Breakfast was help yourself - it was ok but i just had toast as there wasn't much choice
