We had only one overnight stay in this hotel. It is ok nothing special but there is also nothing wrong with it. The room was recsently renovated and they were nice. The breakfast was also ok. The hotel staff was nice and polite.
Hotel is fully renovated and it's done with an excellent taste! Hotel is fresh, modern and very scandinavian. Breakfast is brilliant and the view in the park is nice and beautiful. Staff is welcoming and friendly. Why - 1 one star? The Kimmel Spa is one of the prettiest I've seen, but unfortunately very, very small. Prize is a bit high for so small spa and it was a pity to walk upstairs if yoi wanted something to drink. Eventhough, I highly recommend Sokos Hotel Kimmel.
This hotel has been completely renovated. So everything looks stylish and fresh. Joensuu railway station is located opposite the hotel. We booked the best suite which is located on the top 5th floor and has a huge wrap-around balcony with great views. You have your own sauna in the spacious bathroom but no bathtub. We had dinner at the hotel's Bistro Heili restaurant. The service was friendly and the food was tasty. Breakfast is served in a big breakfast hall. The food selection is wide but the atmosphere has a canteen-like vibe on busy mornings. The reception staff was friendly. Our stay had a quite good value for 352 euros considering the size of the suite.
The hotel is fully renovated. Everything worked perfectly, room was clean and spacious. The view is calming. The staff was friendly. Nothing to complain! We will visit again! I can recommend to all. The only small downside was that the blackout curtains did not completely cover the windows.
Very nicely renovated and modernized classic hotel in Joensuu. However, the Spa renovation is still under process, but will be finalized soon. Very friendly staff. Good location. Beautiful view over the city and the river from the upper floors. The suite (room 512) was really nice and highly recommended for couples. We will come back.
I stayed at Kimmel for two nights. You need to ask for Bathrobe and for slippers. I stayed in two different rooms, one had a bathtub and the other did not. Breakfast was nothing special, not good, not bad. There were some remarks regarding social distancing and keeping safety distance, but I feel that at least during the breakfast this could have been taken better into consideration with more measures to minimize spread and also keeping safety distance. The staff was friendly and the restaurant had good dinner food as well.
If you are here, enjou good food and nice rooms. Our dinner was okei. Service is pleasent and air con works in these rooms and parking is free and close of reception. Very near by city market place and everything. I recommed this Kimmeli
Rooms were untidy and furnished like soviet union. Some hairs were found from the bathtub, TV had 14 channels, only one in english, not even music TV. There were absolutely no comfort at room besides bed and untidy bathtub. Even pool was closed and fact wasnt informed prior stay.
the hotel is always magnificently decorated at Christmas. There are beautiful Christmas arrangements and decorations all around the hotel. They bake Finnish traditional Karelian pastries themselves.the staff make the hotel feel and are very professional
I think hotel Kimmel was excellent choise for staying two nights during my business trip in Joensuu. Everything was very tidy and clean. Breakfast was excellent. Premises were beatifully decorated creating nice atmosphere. Only wish would be to get better pillow in the room.
