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.

Hotel was just like from movie Shining. Worn and smelly hallways, deco was maybe origina 80'sl, very dark and no natural light only dim yellow lights. Old worn furnitures. - family room contained weird loft bed that did not have side stoppers all round for stopping people falling out. I can't put kids there! See pic - burger restaurant served drinks with small flies. Really! All we got icecreams for that. Somehow they got inside the drink dispenser they said. - rooms did not have air conditioners. Room was hot even it rained all days and it was only +10c - windows were super dirty. It has to be several years since those were cleaned last time -spa was ok but worn out and dressing room were joint for man and women. + beds were good and room good.except bathroom. + friendly and helpfull staff We paid 508e for 3 nights. I woud pay only 90e/night from this max.

Hotel is old fashioned. There is no airconditioning and no blackout curtains in the window. Pillows were awful. There was dirt under our bed so the room was not properly cleaned. Pool area was okay but definetly needs renovation. Breakfast was okay. Good and friendly service at the desk.

The best days of the hotel and the spa were probably somewhere in the 80’s, but we stayed in one of the new studio apartments and apart of being somewhat small there was nothing to complain about it. There’s even air conditioning available. The breakfast was not the greatest but it was okay. The biggest disappointment was the dinner buffet. The was always two meat ond one fish option but no vegetarian option (maybe you can request it). The food was always very bland tasting like school meals or such so I can not recommend the dinner option. The location of the hotel is quite nice and peaceful.

We stayed in a modern cabin in the grounds while visiting relatives. It was very simple but well equipped. We had an excellent break. We did not really use the hotel except for coffee and soup which was good. We will stay again and would recommend this place for a relaxing holiday. We were blessed with a beautiful snow covered stay. Great fun.

The hotel, rooms and spa are a bit dated and would need renovating, but still okay. The surroundings are beautiful and the air is fresh and clean. The staff is very friendly, food at the restaurant was good - try fried vendace! Breakfast was average.

We went to see Ville Valo & The Agents here and the venue was intimate and welcoming. Staff were lovely , the bar drinks were very expensive but that's standard for Finland! It was very easy to find even by walking 20 minutes from our air bnb.

Our congress of 200 guests was held here. Everything went fine: the staff was friendly and helpful, the auditorium and other premises used were of good standard, the rooms were nice, clean and silent and the food served plentiful, fresh and tasty. In the evening time the bar service was efficient and friendly. I guess there is a good atmosphere among the staff in this hotel. Nice experience!

We stayed at the Rauhalahti Spa Hotel for 4 nights in August 2018. It cost €495 for a double room. It is NOT a 4 star hotel. On check-in, the staff were very friendly and our room was ready right away. The hotel itself is quite old and badly in need of a refurbishment. The room was small, with two low, twin beds with separate linen on each bed. There were two decorative cushions and a blanket over the end of the bed. These were quite old and the fabric reminded me of an old curtain!! The bathroom was small with a shower with a shower curtain and one sink. Bathrobes are provided. If you want to go to the pool, you need to bring your towel from your room with you. However we did this one morning, used our towels to dry off while we were at the pool, and when we came back, the room had been tended to by housekeeping, but they had not replaced our towels. Another thing to note about the room is that the curtains did not pull the whole way across the windows....in a country which has really long hours of daylight during the summer, this is a bit of a problem!!! The swimming pool area is OK. There are a few pools here, a few children's ones, a slide, one big heated pool which goes outdoors and then another pool more suitable for swimming lengths in. There are some jacuzzi sections in the heated pool, but no separate jacuzzi tub. The saunas are segregated and are part of the changing rooms, and swimsuits are not allowed! However I believe this is the norm in Finland. Breakfast was not great. There was a very poor selection, considering it is supposed to be a 4-star hotel. We found sound to be an issue in the bedroom. I found it difficult to sleep (also due to the bed which was not comfortable!) but in the mornnings, especially, we could hear quite clearly, everyone who passed by our door. On the Sunday morning we were awoken by a baby screaming in another room!! It would not be so bad to hear what happens right outside your door, but you should not be able to hear sounds from other rooms!! Also there is a nightclub in the hotel and we could hear the noise from there in our room on the nights it was open. The number 7 bus runs from right outside the hotel and it's about 20 mins to the centre of Kuopio which is quite handy. There is also a holiday park as part of Rauhalahti, and you can rent cabins, or camp there. I think this might be better value than staying in the hotel. In general, the hotel is OK but it was not worth €495 and it is certainly not a 4-star hotel. It desperately needs to be refurbished.

Close to Kuopio center yet quiet location with lots of nature nearby. Smallish but nice spa with access to outdoor pool. Unisex dressing room may confuse, but there are small changing cubicles for the shy ones. Friendly staff, good amenities for outdoor activities including a smoke sauna nearby.

I’m staying for business so not really for me, but looking at it as a family hotel it is very nice, almost like a hotel resort I would say. Live band, lots of things for the kids to do, spa and other relaxing things to do and hire. I would bring the family here! 👍
