A small hotel of some 10 rooms, located in the beautiful former home of a paper mill owner. A gem of functionalistic architecture of the 1930s. A big minus was the lack of bathrooms and toilets - something you would not expect from a hotel placed in a unique house like this. It seems that the the plumbing was close to its original form, including one bathroom + toilet to be shared by a pair of two rooms. Except for the 4 smallest rooms “economy”, that shared one toilet in foyer, and a legend of a bathroom somewhere in the premises. However, that bathroom did not exist in the main building, and there were. no instructions how to find it in the room. Luckily, our party had booked several rooms, so we were able to share one bathroom. Nevertheless, this hotel was worth visiting for 1 night, but a longer period without a bath room would have been problematic. The rooms are spacious, well furnished and with nice views - one side to the lake and the other to the park. Also the breakfast was good, and the service most kind.…
When arriving, it took us some time to realize that you had to check in at the cafeteria. We took lunch there as well and it was an average buffet by Finnish standards. Quite ok, but nothing special. Our spacious, well furnished room shared a bathroom with the next room. There was a bath tub, but as a courtesy to the adjoining room we went bathing in the very nice sauna (included) by the lake instead. In the evening we used the kitchen downstairs to heat some pizza in the microwave. The breakfast next morning was the weakest part of our stay. Limited choices, but the worst thing was the presentation and that the food was not replenished in a timely manner. If it was not for the breakfast, we would have given this place a 4.
Lovely place and location. Very nice and friendly employes. A l carte food was very tasty but breakfast was a big dissapointment cold boiled eggs, a very narrow range of bread, no marmelade for croissants small things but many enough to give the impression of not meeting up to the level of the overall expectation.
We stayed at the hotel during our trip to see the Serlachius art museums. Although the hotel reception was closed, and breakfast was at Mäntän Klubi, rather than on site, the overall experience was excellent. Beautiful, clean room with stunning views toward the lake. We were able to get assistance by phone when needed. Customer service was friendly. We did a morning dip to the lake in the morning, which was nice. All in all, a great experience, especially considering the reasonable price.
This is a unique hotel in a beautiful 1940’s villa that has plenty of history. The rooms are true to the old style, which is fantastic. However, this also means that you may need to share a bathroom – like in an old-fashioned hotel. Please note that the economy rooms are not nearly as nice, but you ofcourse get to enjoy the atmosphere of the villa otherwise. The villa is architecturally really beautiful and it has a big, green garden right to the water’s edge. There’s a jetty where you can sit and admire the view and a possibility to have a sauna by the lakeside. The breakfast is served at a room with an amazing window to the lake. The breakfast is simple but adequate, also true to the old style: no frills. The hotel has a nice bistro menu and they offer a good lunch, too.
