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.

Clean hotel with a friendly, nature atmosphere, even the hotel room key was wood!😊 the rooms where simple, the TV small, and the breakfast was not the best quality but overall the stay was pleasant and the price was good. Great choice for business in the north of Finland.

if you want to sleep in an armchair that has been turned into a "bed", choose this hotel!! The spare bed can't even be called a bed, a person of normal height can't fit completely in it and the part under the pillow betrays you when you sleep! The toilets are shocking, just like a ship's toilet.

Very clean, perfectly located hotel. Literally couple of min to the central plaza and stores. Self checking allows you to arrive any time which is very convenient when you driving and depend on trafic in some areas.

The hotel's decent and I reckon it is considered cheap for Finnish standards. Rooms are clean (even though doors and bathroom would need maintenance), breakfast is decent and varied, location is in the city centre. So the hotel is a good option for travellers who wish mainly to have a decent place to sleep. This said, I have the feeling this green rhetoric is just a means of reducing waged staff to the minimum. Basically staff is available just until the afternoon, then everything is based on self-management and contactless. Wouldn't mind to have more human contact though.

Joensuu was not our destination but a place to stop for the night on our self drive route. We had been paying an average of $200 USD a night at Finland hotels. What a pleasure to come across Greenstar hotel! About $100 with a nice room and free parking. Front desk staff was very nice and she recommended a great restaurant walking distance from the hotel. There was construction going on in the street so we asked for a quiet room in the back which was in reality very quiet. Highly recommend.

Very nice experience overall, nothing to complain and everything worked out well. Stayed for one night, and took breakfast from the bakery next door. Nice extra was that you could get free coffee and tea from downstairs, also takeaway! 😍 And good location 👏🏼

The hotel is otherwise good: spacious room, friendly staff, good location, but the room is so hot that it is impossible to stay in the room during the day and we could only sleep couple of hours keeping the window open all night and two fans on. Receptionist was friendly to give us a bigger fan and an electric freezer bag to cool some drinks. The fridge in the room is a joke, that doesn't keep anything cool. Just uses power and warms up the room for nothing. I am sorry to be negative as I would like to enjoy this hotel but this made our two days of the holiday more stressfull than relaxing. Advice to the hotel: It is time to update the rooms with airconditioners. It must be awful also for the house keeping to clean rooms.

There's no air conditioning and no way to properly ventilate the rooms, and it was impossible to sleep. In the winter its probably better, but I would never come here again during the summer. The service was friendly and the breakfast was ok.

I visited a Greenstar the very first time in Joensuu. It obviously is a budget hotel concept. Breakfast not included in room price. The room was extremely hot. There was a water boiler in the room but no tea or coffee provided. The drain was noisy which I found peculiar for Finnish standard. I heard loudly when the neighbor used the shower. Otherwise friendly staff and good location in city center. Next time I’ll go to Sokos Hotel.

Good choice in the center city. Eco-style hotel. Good breakfast buffet (for an extra charge). Clean and tidy rooms. Rooms may be hot in the hot weather if they are facing south. No air conditioning. There was an electric kettle and a small refrigerator in the room. Parking for an extra charge.
