Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel is the leading conference, banquet and event location in eastern Finland. At Kimmel, you can organize small and large meetings, various trade fair events and unforgettable family feasts. At restaurant Fransmanni, you can also enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and good food as well as our hotel's sumptuous breakfast, and dance the night away accompanied by star performers. Our hotel is located in the beautiful Sirkkala-park by the River Pielisjoki. Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel is named after the fast-flowing River Pielisjoki and its glimmering foam. We take advantage of the beautiful Sirkkala-park scenery every year by organizing the Osuuskaupparock, which attracts increasing numbers of rock enthusiasts. We are also located only a few minutes' walk from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Our staff is happy to tell you about what is going on around the town and give you advice on what to see during your trip. Bus and train stations are located right across the street from our hotel. It is also easy to reach us by plane, since the airport shuttle bus will get from Joensuu Airport to the hotel in a blink of an eye. Our hotel is a full-service provider: food, drink, good night's sleep, relaxation and evening fun. Welcome to visit us at Kimmel!

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.
