The room I had was small, dingy and not very inviting. The bathroom shower flooded the floor no matter how hard you tried to control water overflow and a squeegee was provided to sweep up the water. I am on holidays and not prepared to clean bathroom after use!! A few of the reception people were shyly friendly but others...

Definitely recommended if you need a place to stay and you don't care about high end luxury. The bed are comfy enough, the hotel is right on top of a tram station. The breakfast is better than most I've had in Europe. Bathrooms are clean.

A good value basic hotel. I booked a twin superior. Room big enough, bathroom spacious and clean. Beds very comfortable, with cosy duvets and plumped up pillows. i found vented heating a bit drying.

This hotel was booked for me as the company was a sponsor of the event I was attending. What can I say. It's right next to the ice rink. The #3 tram to the city centre stops just outside. It has an Irish Pub, & as I was there for St Patrick's night, it was a bonus. It's also next...

In town on business, chose this place because of central location. The place and rooms look a bit dated but are in a good condition. Very functional, don't expect too much space or amenities (but yes, they have a TV!) Can recommend this .

This hotel provides a comfortable bed in a fairly clean but very small room. It is quiet, served by teams and buses, but has no catering other than breakfast. And no bar. The room I was in (727) was more like a ships cabin than a hotel room. But I got a very good night sleep with no disturbance so...

The positives were the friendly staff and proximity to the streetcar stop. The negatives: the room was SMALL, as in I had to put my suitcase on the bed to open it all the way. It wouldn't have been as bad if the room was clean. It wasn't. There were what looked like burn marks or tar on the bed...

Hello! I'm sad to hear you would not recommed our hotel, but thank you for giving us important feedback. Our single rooms are very small, twin and superior rooms are bigger and that's why I would recommend booking those. I'm sorry our breakfast didn't have enough options and that there were negligences in your room. We'll try our best to...

Cumulus Kallio is in the very hipster-friendly Kallio neighborhood, quite a ways from city center. There are many tram stops nearby, however, there are not a lot of attractions, points of interests, or even nice restaurants in this area. There are quite a few hipster-filled bars, though. We had no reservation, but saw ads online for rooms in the €100...

Hello! Thank you for the detailed review of our hotel and giving insight to our possible future customers. It's true, the second floor rooms are more modern as they were recently renovated. And no, we aren't located at the city centre so there isn't really any sightseeing in here, but a 15 minute tram ride takes you to the centre...
