Checked into our room at Scandic Atlas Hotel right on the main square in Kuopio. Our driver had already delivered our bags and picked up our keys. Very large room with twin beds pushed together. Only one luggage rack so I had to put my bag on a chair. Nice size desk with lamp and sufficient outlets. Small wall mounted TV. Bathroom was large with a walk-in shower. There was no door on the shower so water ran out of the shower. Soaps and lotions in dispensers. We had a group dinner in the evening. The dining room was very noisy and hard to hear other people at your table. Service was a little slow. Salad delivered first followed by beef served over mashed potatoes with carrots. Dessert was a mousse dish. Dinner was filling and very tasty. Also had breakfast the following morning.
Rooms were a bit dusty. Some of the furniyures were worn out. Could not sit properly on a sofa. Toom temp over 23 degrees and the system is not cooling. Got another toom and same issue. Staff do not seem to care. Just complaining that my shift just started. Room was very expensive towards what you got. Breakfast was limited.
We spent a night here in Atlas. Perfect location near the market. Cozy, interior and tidy rooms. Breakfast was abundant and versatile and the best scrambled eggs I've ever eaten. The staff was helpful and friendly.
Very nice hotel in the heart of Kuopio. Nice, cozy interior, comfortable and clean room, good and friendly service, with excellent location! And finally, good breakfast. There is all you need when visiting Kuopio. I'd suggest!
On our trip to Ruka and Kuusamo we spent a night here in Scandic Atlas. Tha parking was situated nicely underground, so we did not need to walk in the cold rain and the car was warm and safe as well. The hotel itself was nice and peaceful, although many other travellers used it as a stopping point as well.
The location is great. You can't get more central. Besides that is was nothing special. Room was Basic, however big, but we got a view to the department store. At around 3.30am we woke up to a smell of something burning. Front desk told me it happens and is nothing to worry about. Wish we would have known this before booking. Breakfast was Basic with a little for everyone.
Our suite wasn't ready until 15:30. There are only three junior suites at the hotel. I wonder why their cleaning is not prioritized. At 12:45 all others got their standard rooms. The receptionist gave us a small candy bag. I am not sure if it was compensation for the delay or a TOP level welcome gift for my partner. No other gifts could not be seen. The air conditioning was just in the living room, not cooling the bedroom. So we had a hot night with poor sleep. This historic hotel has an excellent location next to the marketplace. The suites are corner rooms with great views. The hotel was fully booked. The breakfast in the beautiful Atlas hall was busy.
Room was good and does not look out dated. Shower corner was awful small. Breakfast good, also service. Location is excellent in city center. There is huge parking hall underground. I would go again if I visit in Kuopio.
The location is great! The hotel is situated in the heart of Kuopio right next to market square and public transportation. Very friendly staff at the check-in and breakfast buffet. Breakfast was very good too! Our standard room was basic but very comfortable and clean with all necessities, and a huge plus was the view over the city center. We had a very enjoyable stay!
Close to everything in the city! You get to leave car under the markerplace and get a discount at the hotel for the stay 14€/day. Hotel is clean and room is good size. Big bathroom with shower. Breakfast room is small and can get crowded at times, but everything was delicious.
