Was it the luck I had a pretty clean, neat and cosy double room, or was it the warmth and unostentatious care of the staff that made my stay in Merikotka warm and convenient in that "Finnishly" cold beginning of May. Neither I expected much nor I missed a thing in the hotel: all was in, all was comfortable, cosy and clean. Good and clean bathroom, shampoo and shower gel available on the house; magically soothing and ergonomic bed with the pillow that must have been charmed to bring you to sleep immediately you put your head on it :)... The breakfasts were simple and tasty, the guests could use the microwave, toaster, kettle and dishes at their convenience; the room was cleaned daily. The young couple who ruled the hotel helped a lot at unexpectedly speedy change of my trip plans: I had full money back for one night off the hotel, was given plenty of time to wait inside for my bus after the check - out time had expiried, and they printed my flight tickets. The bar downstairs was fine and the "sea view" to the harbour was sooo calming :). The convenient paths to the town center to be mentioned and nice promenades across the harbour were so thought - conditioning too.

Location is ideal, just next to city center and free parking on the street. The room for two was spacious and clean, but somewhat outdated. The building and neighbourhood is perhaps the pretties in Kotka. The breakfast was very very basic, nothing wrong, but I would recommend to skip it and search a nice cafe from the city instead.

Came here because the Sokos was full. The room was clean but pretty basic and the beds not so comfortable. Breakfast at €10 was pretty sparse and I would not bother to be honest. Location was okay, about 5 min walk to the mall and supermarket. But would choose the Sokos any day.

The pictures from the website give feel of light and neatness. In reality there is less of both. The foreign colleague I booked to this hotel claimed there was mold in the bathroom. I was ashamed. It is a pity, because the hotel has potential, for example it is very well situated. They should call help from Gordon or Sukula!

Merikotka is situated in a beautiful, old building. Location is nice, next to the harbor but a short walk to the town center. Reception in the afternoon was in the downstairs pub and staff there was nice. A single room was... well, single room from the 90's. Bearable for one night, but nothing special to mention of. No wi-fi in the rooms, also the Sonera network had only 2G... so no netsurfing. At breakfast were only cold cutlets, bread, boiled eggs and cereal. Very basic. If you need only to sleep and don't expect anything fancy, this might be a good place for you. Free parking on the street.
