When you arrive, Sawohouse may not look like a traditional hotel. The buildings are surrounding a nice courtyard and there is also a large summer terrace. Staff is really friendly and takes time to pay attention to their guests. The room was quite simple but very clean and peaceful. It also had an own entrance. The breakfast was tasty and generous. Location is good, especially if you are on the move by car (free safe parking), but also a bus stop can be found just around the corner. A really nice hotel experience at a reasonable price!
This is a really nice, warm and charming small hotel, with unique rooms . I spent there two nights in same week, on two separate trips. Staff was prepared to accomodate my unfortunate late arrival . Sorrounding area is really beautifull, surrounded by lots of greenery, nearby lake, and it is just few minutes from the main highway to Kuopio. This would be nice hotel to bring your spouse or loved one for a nice weekend getaway. Plenty of parking space, and Kuopio city is just few minutes away.
We needed a nice place to stay one night and this was really good choice. Sawo House is close to highway and very easy to drive but like others has said the traffic noise does not bother. The check in was really nice as the host showed us to our room and he also suggested the new hotel restaurant. It had opened just a week ago and it is nice and there is also big terrace. We were thinking something small to eat, but when we saw their gourmet burgers we decided to try and it was freshly made and tasty. On the terrace there was live music. Our room was just perfect for us and we slept very well. The room was nice design and beautiful, the bathroom was big and there was good selection of necessary toiletries. In the morning we had a good breakfast with nice selection. I liked the bread and well made oatmeal (kaurapuuro). I think the best part of Sawo House is the personnel, they all friendly and easy to talk to.…
I spent here 1n on a biz trip, after some meetings in Kuopio. Very big parking space, the hotel is located few km from the city centre. Very cosy single room, although a bit small. So was the bathroom. Very nice reception area as well as breakfast. Warm and friendly service. A more than correct option in the area, good value for money.
We stayed in a family room with two cosy bedrooms, very comfortable and clean. A kitchen and small living room combined, everything brand new and well functioning. The place itself is very easy to reach and nicely surrounded in nature. Felt like at home. We arrived very late, keep in mind the reception is open till 9pm, unfortunately we were not aware, but they called us and very kindly offered a way to settle us. Building, yard, terrace, restaurant and breakfast place is so charming and cozy. Staff very friendly and flexible. Would love to stay longer and enjoy this place.
