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 room was not clean. There was hair covering the hower drain. The made bed had sand in it. I skeptisch in my sleeping bag to be safe. If nor for the clenliness this would be an amazing hotel. Great views, right next to the City Center. The deck and breakfast is great. So are late night BYOB on the deck.

Don't ever go this place. Personnel was inappropriate and they even don't try to be flexible. Breakfast wasn't enough for the sports club. So it's better pay little bit more and go hotels where personnel want to be custome services.

To start with, Tripadvisor information is not updated, the ship is situated in Kuopio nowadays. Such a nice experience, so much better than to stay in a chain hotel lacking personality. The hotel is very nice, not luxurious, but nicely situated and providing good accomodation with a splendid view over Kallavesi (we chose the suite). We even had a private deck where it was great to enjoy some bubbly. Breakfast was good, and a special mention has to go to the extremely friendly personnel, they made us feel very welcome. No doubt we will be staying here again the next time we are in Kuopio.

The Hotel is on the lake and has a very easy access with codes being sent to your mobile. The room is spacious and clean, with wc and shower and with a wonderful view over the lake. It is worth to pay some extra to have the view and the natural light. The space above is for the breakfast and has a lounge that surely is very busy in summertime with a wonderful view over the lake. The staff on the breakfast were very kind and the breakfast was good. Very practical and silent hotel. However it is easy to understand that any sound comes through the thin walls if there would be any party or shoutings nearby. Also recommended the Boca Retaurant just in front of the Hotel. We had a lamb meal and was delicious.

WORST EXPERIENCE. The room cannot fit three adult. Only one small window which is the "lake view". Completely self service no hotel staff. Airless room with extremely limited space No way to put your luggage in side and walk around in the room. There is absolutely no space. You can find a place so much better than this with the same price.Worst customer service and management. If you do want this to ruin your trip,DO NOT STAY HERE.

Good value of money. Wuoksi was clean and nice place to spent time. Well soundproof is not so good but that is small problem! Room was small but there was everything what you need, 2 beds, toilet, shower. Breakfast was nice there was also everything what need. If you don't look luxury this is value for money hotel for you. Also place is nice and near everything.

If you are on a trip to Kuopio, use the ship Wouksi as accomodation. Of course it is directly in the harbour close to the central city with good restaurants. The rooms are very small but also clean and well designed. The breakfest is included and typical for northern countries. The support on site is minimal, you got a message prior you arrival with the code for front door and room door. Everything is absolutely acceptable.

Since we had payed for the hotel beforehand, no actual check-in was needed. We received key-codes via text message to enter the hotel and our rooms on the morning of our booking. The rooms themselves were basic, but contained everything needed. The atmosphere on the boat was lovely and relaxed. There is a large terrace with patio furniture that all guests are free to use. There was a feeling of old friends hanging out as we all chatted and got to know each other. Silence starts at 11pm, at which point the terrace quieted down as we all went our separate ways. Breakfast was basic and self serve; there were yogurts, eggs and an eggcooker, all the ingredients to make sandwiches, a coffee machine and assorted juices. Again a very relaxed and family-style atmosphere. Definitely a pleasant and different experience!

Rooms OK. Service all but non-existant. Met there by someone to give us entry code and room key then left to our own devices. Breakfast was basic but adequate. For us its location was good for that one place we wanted to see in Iisalmi. Two days before our arrival our booking was cancelled due to our debit card being blocked because of fraudulant use of our debit card elsewhere. Thought nothing of it because booking.com indicated that payment was OK on the day of our arrival. Had to book again (via booking.com). Cost was more than the cancelled booking. Not impressed. I hasten to add I understand booking.com has no control over the policies of hotels listed on their website.
