Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel is located in the very center of Iisalmi, but they offer you free parking on their courtyard. The hotel has very nice furnishing and especially the main hall of the hotel is very unique, nothing you usually see in Finnish chain hotels. Our superior room was spacious and easily enough for a small family with two small kids.

Breakfast was excellent with fresh baking, fresh berries and so. I really appreciate nice breakfast and in this hotel you have one! Dinner options were nice, too, with a selection for kids included. Staff was genuinely friendly... And all this with very reasonable price, so this hotel is of great value!

Hotel Golden Dome is situated in the city center of Iisalmi, only a couple of hundred meters from the railway station. This unique hotel is a stunning combination of Karelian and Orthodox culture. Especially the breakfast room and the restaurant are amazing. They are full of interesting wall paintings and stained glass. Service was very kind.

The breakfast buffet is better than usual. It included a good selection of fruits and other fresh choices, too. There are also some local specialties available. I especially loved salmon paste and fresh Karelian rice pastries. I have to admit that pancakes or crepes were very delicious, too. Gluten free diet and other special diets are also available. The dinner restaurant is also extremely good.

Rooms are quite ordinary. There was heatwave outside and our room was quite hot. Besides central air-conditioning, there was a portable cooling air-conditioner in the room but it wasn't very natty or useful. We also missed blackout curtains. Daily housekeeping was done only on request on a previous day and not at all on Sundays.

I think it was hard to decide if I give the rating 4 or 5 to this hotel. It is so unique and the breakfast buffet is so good that the hotel would deserve the rating 5. However, due to minor grievances I give the rating 4. Actually 4½ would be the correct rating.

This hotel was very nice. Not a chain hotel so it had unique twist. Customer service was excellent. Rooms are quite new and clean but very small. There also is not much soundproofing so hope you do not get noisy people next door. Location was great. It is middle of the town but it is very small and quiet town so really no traffic noise or parking problems. Breakfast was very good and had some really tasty homemade bakings included. Also tried the restaurant in the evening and it was great too with very orignal decoration in the dining hall. Despite what some other review say here, the hotel had an elevator.

We stayed at this lovely and quiet hotel for four days. It is best situated for people who travel by train as it is near the railway station. The staff was very friendly and helped us with all of our questions. The breakfast was tasty and nicely displayed. We also had two evening meals in the hotel which were varied and fresh. The only downside was the limited offer of vegetarian meals, but then this is somehow what we experienced all over in Finland. The day of our departure we were even given the opportunity to make ourselves a sandwich for the trip ahead and take whatever we wanted from the buffet. This was a generous gesture and was very much appreciated. Thank you for a lovely stay in Iisalmi which we liked a lot!

Meeting place for karelian and ortodox culture in Iisalmi. Extraordinary. Delicious food, local twist, friendly personnel. Paintings on the wall tell stories from bible but meantime you can enjoy your diner with well chosen wines beside the courgeous glasspainting. Place to see.

A great place to stay in the town centre, walking distance everywhere. Also free parking just outside. Being a former Orthodox culture centre, the hotel is unique in terms of interior design with stained glass windows and frescos on the dining room walls.
We stayed for one night in a room on the second floor. The room was quite small for two persons, but it was clean and the beds were good. There is no AC, but we could open the window for fresh air. The rooms on this floor are the original size, we were told. Other parts of the hotel have been refurbished.
Hotel staff are very attentive and nice. You can see that they like their job!
Breakfast was excellent, fresh food, brewed tea and delicious Carelian pasties!
Will definitely stay there again, if we ever come back to Iisalmi. Maybe in another type of room, though. 😀

Visited Iisalmi for work. I stayed at the Golden Dome Hotel for almost 2 weeks and couldn’t fault it. This stay is winter time. Room was perfect temperature. I could open a window if needed. Bed comfortable. Shower hot. Breakfast as part of room rate was really good with plenty of variety. Restaurant quality food each night. I tried quite a few different restaurants with work colleagues and the Golden Dome restaurant was equal to anything. Friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance to everything yet in a quiet location. Interesting building as it’s a converted church I think. Amazing paintwork on walls of main hall and led light windows. Clean. Well maintained. If I return again for work there will be no question as to where I’d stay. Thanks staff of Golden Dome…great job.

A surprising mysterious boutique-hotel in the ’middle of nowhere’ in Iisalmi, Estern Finland. The decor is Italian marbour mixed with Russian Orthodox Church. Look at the pics! We had a room with a sauna and that was luxyry. Good service, Very nice rooms and a central, yet quiet, location. I strongly recommend staying a night at this hotel if you are in the neighbourhood.

This property is really a unique hotel. It is a walking distance from the railway station, provides really good rooms, excellent dining with excellent meals, newly-renovated sauna ja an unique restaurant room.
Just perfect for a business person visiting Iisalmi.
