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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This hotel is a former Cumulus hotel and it shows in the outdated decor. However, Cumulus rooms are usually very practical. So was our Superior Family Four room which is the biggest room type at this hotel. The breakfast is served in the former Martina restaurant located underground. This place would also need a complete make-over. However, the breakfast buffet was in immaculate condition, although the breakfast time was near its end. One man was effectively replenishing the buffet. The reception staff was very friendly. Our stay in a Superior Family Four room had an excellent value for the senior rate of 124 euros. My partner got also as a Scandic TOP Level member a small welcome gift and a 15-euro voucher for the bar or room minibar.

Parking places very limited, even thought Joensuu is not a big city. There is a parking hall in the hotel, but they have only 5 parking places there and they must be booked in advance. Why only 5 places, cause hall is much bigger? Outside they have 16 places, but they were all full. Then you have to park some 400 meters away, in some market's parking hall. Breakfast ok, but due to lack of personnel, it does not work very well. All tables full of dirty dishes, cause they don't have time to clean them. Orange juice ran out. Then coffee and then even coffee sugar ran out. This poor waitress tried to do her best, but I think she was alone. And last, hotel receptionist was quite rude, when I gave her some complaints. She would need an attitude chance or a new job. For 140 €/ night, you would expect some level of service. (Remember, this is Joensuu, not Manhattan). I spend +150 nights yearly in hotels around the Europe, but this hotel I won't come back. Next two night I'll stay at the competitors place

Response from Scandic Joensuu, General Manager at Scandic Joensuu
Responded 3 weeks ago
Hi Risto! Thank you for your feedback. I am really sorry that your stay at our hotel was not successful. We have 18 parking spaces of our own and 5 in the garage, because there are also other companies in our property that need parking spaces. The reception staff will be happy to advise on nearby parking options. I'm also sorry about the breakfast, sometimes during rush hours some products might run out temporarily. We will review your feedback with the staff in order to avoid similar situations in the future. Have a great day! Kindly regards, Tiia Shift Leader Front Office Scandic Joensuu

Nice small Scandic near Joensuu market square. Practical and peaceful location near city attractions and quite near University area. Good breakfast and friendly service. Air condition is quite powerful. I recommend especially for short trips.

I only had a chance to spend 1 night in this hotel, and I did not get a chance to go out in the city, but the hotel was nice, clean, and in a good location. The breakfast was great, and the restaurant setting was really cool. Definitely recommend this hotel.

We had a double room with queen size bed. The bed was only 140cm wide and made for one person. We asked for another room and were told that all double beds are that size and tehy did not have twin rooms with separate available. The bed was very unconfortable and we decided to change hotel after one night (even though we had planned to stay longer). We found a nice hotel near by for the rest of our stay for almost half of the price we paid for this.

I was here for work and study. Staff were totally professionals and friendly, always there for me! Annoyingly comfortable bed that nearly locked me from doing my school projects and also almost prevented me from working. Luckily breakfast lured me from the bed every morning - and it was depressingly good that I missed it the rest of the day. Fortunately corridors and doors were wide enough for rolling out. Much of my dismay also the location is nearly perfect, so it was nearly impossible to stuck in work and worry. Only reason I managed to worry about anything at all was (apparent) lack of restaurant in building - though, sadly, many and variety were found nearby. (***Please note the humour here***) For you, who does not want to enjoy life, this is not your place. For the rest, just the place. +: Staff, location, room, breakfast -: Apparently no restaurant in site, no decent possibility to eat late at night (potato chips, candy and peanuts are none such).

It´s like coming home when arriving Svandic Joensuu; the staff has nice attitude and are ready to serve. Location of this hotel is excellent. On aina mukavaa tulla tänne, aivan kuin tulisi kotiin. henkilökunnan ystävällinen asenne ei koskaan säröile, ja sijainti on mitä parhain, kun on asiaa Joensuun keskustaan.

Room: We stayed one night in "Superior Family Four" -room. Air-conditioning didn't work (Staff comment: "Too hot summer for the building's air-conditioning capacity"), so the room temperature was +28C. Hotel offered small fan as replacement. There was some small leakage in room's air-conditioning pipes (bucket on the floor) and therefore other room was reorganised (beds moved, sofa moved) causing half of that room was unusable. Without these inconveniences room would have been good standard level hotel room. Breakfast: Basic but Good. Location: Good location in city center. Quite limited parking spaces.

Very basic and dull hotel. The room was clean but uninspiring, as was the service. Fortunately the bed was pretty good and the breakfast okay. The location is pretty good, though: everything is within walking distance.

I stayed on a Scandic (or should I say Cumulus) Joensuu one night. Customer service was friendly and staff were very kind. Negative side, there was a loud renovation going on through out the building. Room was bit dusty and bedlinens felt dirty with dark body hairs in them.
