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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent breakfast, friendly staff, scenic area. On weekdays public transport runs next to hotel, weekends the stop is further away. Walking distance to city centre. Quiet, no noise from guests or traffic. Pool area very nice.

Hotel's Favourite
Very nice and clean hotel with own parking and small swiming pool. Good breakfast. The area around the hotel is such a bonus to the stay. It is very green. And there is a lake and a beach and nice walking/running paths. There are paddel courts (can be booked from the hotel), there are tennis courts and there is a stadion. =)

A nice hotel close to the city centre, easy to arrive by car and plenty of free parking space for guests. It must have been very modern hotel twenty years ago but nowadays it's a bit stuck in the 1990s... But don't understand me wrong. It has been renovated on the way and it was a pleasure to stay in a spacious family room. It was a pity that the room didn't really offer a lake view even though it was facing the lake as it wasn't high enough. Breakfast was average as the selection was identical to other Finnish Scandic breakfast buffets with only minor local flavor.

I stayed in this hotel for One Night. The location is very Beautiful, with the splendid view to Kallavesi. It is Close to a park and the city centre. The room was ok size, but pretty worn out. The flooring should be replaced, since it is in bad shape. The interior was directly from Scandics style manual, the same Furniture can be found in Scandic Park in Helsinki. Even the Wall to Wall carpets are the same in the hallways. The bed was comfortable and I slept well. The room was a bit Cold with the a/c on and the bedding was too warm for me. The weird thing was that when I arrived, there was a dog water Bowl in the room, even though I dont have a dog. Maybe leftovers from previous guests... The restaurant food was delicious and service was top notch. The breakfast in the morning was the standard Scandic breakfast as Always.

Close to the lake, within a walking distance from Kuopio town center, this is a nice hotel with basic Scandic rooms (ironing equipment, minibar, hairdryer, tea/coffee in the room), good breakfast and friendly and helpful staff. There's also a pool in the hotel.

Perfect location by the lake. A lot of water activities close to the hotel. Free parking, you just have to register your car digitally in the reception. Friendly receptionist. The room was nice and modern. The sofa bed was a little bit small for 2 kids aged 12+13. We had a good dinner in the restaurant, the waiter was very kind. Breakfast is Scandic standard. The hotel is overall clean and modern.

The hotel visit was pleasant. The location is excellent. We had our two little dogs with us and all went well. The hotel gave s small gift to our furry friends and it is very easy to go out with the dogs since there are nice walking paths next to the hotel and lake. The breakfast was very good and there was plenty of room in the restaurant. The room was clean but a bit outdated.

The hotel was overbooked, so part of the group was transferred to another hotel. The staff was inexperienced, which you noticed in everything. The gluten-free food eater was in for a surprise: the food was served with products containing gluten from the same plate and close to each other, and there were no separate cutlery for the food.
