This is a comfortable hotel with sufficient facilities, well situated in Vakaus. The food is fresh, very tasty and well presented. The service is very good and I found the staff to be helpful. Various may be a small industrial town but the surrounding lakes and countryside offer plenty of sight seeing opportunities. I would not hesitate to return to...

It's a former Scandinavian hotel of the old style. I had a large and nice room on 3rd floor. In general it was clean and well kept. Good breakfast in the morning and also the restaurant is good with a selection of fish/ meat/ burgers etc. Nice and friendly staff. Two things that needs to get fixed in order to...

Hotel Scandic Oscar (from 1.1.2017 Hotel Oscar) has been part of the Scandic chain which is a well-known, good reputation Finnish hotel chain. Oscar is located near the paper mill, so I imagine it is mainly for business travellers (Varkaus itself is a widely spread small town). The room for two persons was surprisingly spacious. It was clean, peaceful and...

In short time I visited hotel two times and had very pleasant staying. Stuff is very professional and can fulfill almost all of your request. Rooms can be a bit larger. Using small gym and sauna was good after work relaxing moments. Oscar's pub is very comfortable with arcade area for familiarising with your colleagues and/or business partners. Since I...

As a business traveller location is fine, factory just cross the road. Parking is free, wifi working well, hotel is clean. Everything works as should. But.... bathroom is outdated and quite small, breakfast is average. Doesn't worth the money, but you have no other choice.

Small city with very few tourist attractions, so adjust your expectations to the reality beforehand. No AC, no safe in room, no fridge, few TV channels are not working properly (unfortunately for foreigners, most of them are international ones), famous Varkaus factory is just few hundred meters away and sometimes it produces lots of smell (hardly the hotel's fault, though)....

A decent hotel at a reasonable price. We had a sauna room which was clean and adequately appointed. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice and had a good selection. A good Italian restaurant around the corner. An easy walk to the main shopping area of town.

Location is good, there ain't that much you can do in Varkaus but all those are in close proximity. Staff is friendly breakfast is typical Finnsh hotel breakfast. Rooms are simple and modest but clean and in good condition. I've stayed here many times on business as well as with kids. Parking is free and works well. Dining is not...

Stayed there for 1 night on a business trip. We arrived late, but we were still able to get a few drinks in the pub next to the lobby. Hotel is clean, although the furniture is a bit outdated (but still functional ans clean).
