The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. The rooms were a bit run down. The cleanliness of the rooms could be improved. The shower really didn't have any pressure. I wouldn't reccomend.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to mention how my stay at this hotel has been extremely pleasant mainly due to the level of service provided by these three ladies. All the processes at the hotel sailed smoothly due to the professional conduct of both Hanna and Maarit. And breakfast time at the hotel was extremely pleasant due to the services provided to me and my family by Sanni who is a part time worker there.

From 3 star Hotel we didn't expect anything special, everything was fine, friendly stuff, it's open 24/7...but I was surprised about cleaning, I found hair in the bathroom,so my complaint goes to only cleaning. Breakfast was awesome, tasty food with different choices and main thing it's budget-friendly hotel, for couple of days to stay there it's ok

We (me, wife and 4yr old) stayed here 4 nights, yeah it's basic as others have said, but the rooms were clean and tidied daily, the breakfast wasn't rotated daily as someone mentioned but I didn't expect it to be so that was fine, was nice as well, and I was able to have something different all three days as there was enough choice. The staff were all friendly and helpful, by the way scandic polar the lass working the Sunday night shift at 3.30am was great! Incredibly friendly helpful and just a lovely lass! The reason I booked here other than availability and affordability was location, and fair play it's absolutely brilliantly located! Also has a small gym in the basement which is bare but ok, all in all we really enjoyed our stay, very child friendly and welcoming
