The hotel was a big establishment which (together with the fact that it is part of a large hotel chain in Finland) lowered our expectations. The scale did not bring anything bad with it though - except for that perhaps the breakfast could have been a bit less "lively". Having criticized the atmosphere of the breakfast, I must admit that the food was good with plenty of local specialties and products. The room was comfortable and nice enough. The only negative remark is that the cleaning of the bath room could have been a bit better - it looked at first like that the tiles on the floor were a bit worn, but in fact there was just some "concentrated" dirt that the daily cleaning had not been able to dispose of (it had clearly been accumulating over a longer period of time) . The location at the very center of Kokkola was just perfect and they have also plenty of parking spaces (free of charge). Perhaps the very best thing was the easygoing friendliness of the staff!:…
Located on the main square in Kokkola. Check-in and welcome was polite and friendly. The room is fairly standard, no frills. Nevertheless, no minibar (fridge) and could also add night table / stand for storing e.g. mobile phone for the night. The gym area is average size. However, the gym equipment works on “air pressure” and are pretty awkward to use. Would recommend changing gym equipment for standard weight-based equipment. The saunas located in the hotel are excellent. So was the breakfast which had an extensive assortment of food and tasty selections. The staff was also very friendly!
Polite and helpful staff, breakfast with varied selections. Unique decorated room, very warm room with put working air condition. Room temperature through the night over 26. Movable fan was no help. Suffering
We have visited Kaarle after our review visit in 2016 a couple of times - so there is not much new to comment - the biggest visible change were perhaps hand sanitizer bottles here and there. Our superior twin room was spacious, clean and offered everything normal, which you could wish for. Breakfast was quite normal. Service was good and gents´s sauna department was nice. The hotel itself is situated close to the centre and offers numerous free parking places in the yard. One important factor for our visit was that, compared to the quality of the room and provided services, the price was quite acceptable.
The hotel rooms seem strange. One cannot charge a phone on the night stand if all the lights are not on. The furniture does not offer a cozy chair, but there is a 4m long makeup table. Also, there is Chromecast in the rooms, but it cannot connect to the WiFi. The rooms are clean, but quite narrow. Unlike the hotel advertises, the rooms do not have air conditioning. There is a very noisy vent in the room, but it does not blow any air. The room temperature stays at hot 24 degrees even if it's 7 degrees outside. As the result, we spent two nights there without sleep. The breakfast is a typical standard hotel breakfast with quite small offering. The staff is friendly but sadly not able to fix any of the problems.
This was a kind of wired trip, not so much people stay at the hotel, restaurant was closed, city was empty and so on. But this really was needed to get out on the road. Hotel room was suite and it was good, and it did delivered this little special feeling you expect from suite. Very cool dark sauna, Jacuzzi in big bathroom. Toilet in separate space. Living area with sofa big flat TV, gas fire place and Hästens double bed and i did expected more vow effect from 6000€ bed! Never the less it was totally worth spending some extra euros. Staff really welcoming, everything was fine, i might return there some day!
Warmly recommended as a well placed, well maintained, well fitted hotel, in the center of Kokkola . Good restaurant and good service . The rooms design is specific for northern Europe but functional and neat. without excesses, everything is in good condition and clean, so you do not feel you are away and willing to go back home asap because you hate returning to the hotel in the evening . Staff is very kind and smiling all the time, in both hotel and restaurant . Breakfast is really very good and a good choice of meals for lunch and dinner . One of the best mexican food I eat , served with good beer and good local gin .
The hotel met all my needs for the short business trip. It was very clean, tidy with excellent amenities but most of all, very friendly and attentive. I will definitely be using again as well as recommending to my friends and colleagues.
Room was new nice and clean. Also breakfast was good selection with pretty good taste. Front desk was friendly but unable to do anything to problems. Problems were very slow and poor connection WiFi and shower where with no water pressure. So if want to work with computer or take shower prepare enough time.
Quite nicely renovated hotel and good location in middle of the city. The breakfast is outstanding with many options for different diets, local products (from fish to yoghurt) and great service. Would recommend the hotel to everyone!
