Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel is new and the rooms are clean, fresh and comfortable. I’m not sure if it’s part of the brand, but the interior design of the hotel (rooms, public areas) is quite bland and not very interesting. The bed was comfortable but I found the pillows too thick - I would’ve preferred to have a couple of different pillows to choose from as I usually prefer flatter pillows. I couldn’t find any instructions in the room on how to turn off the air con. I tried pressing the buttons on a device attached to the wall but it did nothing. The air con was a bit too efficient and I felt a bit chilly, and the air con was making a bit too much noise for me to sleep comfortably. The breakfast was nice and there was something for everyone. The breakfast area was small but I had breakfast around 7.30 so it wasn’t very crowded. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall a nice hotel but nothing more than that. I have to say I expected something more - more personality, more style.

In Finland, the hotel industry is basically a duopoly offering two star standards at four star prices. Thus, an international chain hotel is a very welcome addition to the market. The Courtyard claims three stars, but deserves at least half a star more. While prices are on par with the duopoly, quality is a lot better. I paid 120 € / night without breakfast, which is decent. The hotel felt pleasant and modern, materials and fabrics were of high quality and staff were friendly. I checked in at 1 pm and was welcomed by a friendly receptionist who had a room ready for me. The room was of good size and in good condition. A fresh fitted carpet, a comfortable double bed with a socket by the bed for charging your phone, a desk, a closet (with a safe and an empty minibar), a large mirror on the wall, a luggage rack. There was even a small coffee table and a chair. The room would nicely fulfill four star criteria. The A/C was efficient, but I didn’t learn how to turn it off for the night. Wifi was free and fast. The standard room here is probably better than at any other hotel in Tampere. No water bottles are provided, but tap water is potable and tastes good. Overlapping curtains kept the room dark in the morning. The bathroom did not feel cramped. It came with a walk-in shower with terrible water pressure from a shower head that provided an awfully narrow stream of water. Not the right place to save money! Unfortunately, there are no bathtubs at this hotel. Sadly, single-use toiletries have been replaced by wall-mounted containers, which are a convenient way for the hotel to save money, but which I don't find hygienic enough. Body lotion was not provided anymore, only shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. There were still small bars of soap available. The toilet paper was of high quality, which shows their attention to detail. Breakfast is available in the lobby restaurant from 7 to 10 (until 11:30 on Sundays) and costs 20 € for hotel guests. I did not have breakfast this time, but the breakfast room did not feel crowded. The restaurant also offers a limited menu of comfort food from 4pm onwards Mon-Sat. The hotel is located next to Tampere Hall, a bit far from the city centre. Keskustori is at least 15 minutes away on foot, Stockmann about 10 minutes. The nearest tram stop is a five-minute walk from the hotel.

Courtyard Tampere is a nice mid-range hotel. Breakfast is quite good, typical Courtyard, rooms are nice. However, they are not very good recognizing Marriott loyalty. In fact, during two stays, Titanium level was recognized only by granting top floor room (not corner room or better).

Dear Flayerbalo, thank you for your feedback! Providing the highest level of hospitality is our pride and we are happy to see you enjoyed your stay with us. Great to hear the location was convenient for you. The corridor between our hotel and Tampere Hall is convenient whenever you need to visit events of Tampere Hall. Our breakfast room is rather small, but fortunately we have already started planning the renovation in order to serve our customers better in the future. We do hope to see you again if travels bring you back to the area. It would be an honor to us! Sincerely, Stina Front Desk Associate

Very nice hotel. Friendly staff. My room on the 10th floor was very spacious. Coffee and tea available as well a small fridge. Breakfast was also very good altough the breakfast room is quite small so it can get a bit busy sometimes. The location is also perfect if you attend an event in the Nokia Arena.

An American hotel with little cultural adaptation. Too a small breakfast room, no sauna, wall to wall carpets, compulsory use of id at the reception, english used first on the signs, no menu in the local languages in the elevator. Breakfast was luckily of european standards but had to paid separately. Tips were not expected so the employees are paid according the national standards?

Dear Turo, thank you for leaving us important feedback! We are part of the international Courtyard by Marriott -brand. The idea behind the brand is that every hotel has the same facilities and désign in every destination. Due this reason, many of our info is only in English and we do not have sauna here. Luckily, Tampere is the sauna capital of Finland since we have the most public saunas in Finland! There is no tipping culture in Finland, because employees are paid according to the law. However, if you wish, you can leave a tip as an extra thank you for a job well done. We do hope to see you again in the near future as our guest. It would be an honour to us!

The facilities were fine for the brief visit on business and the breakfast was perfect. The room was clean and well provisioned with good coffee and free bottle of water. Comfy room and quiet although the parking was extra which I guess is to be expected.

Nice hotel in a good location. We got an upgrade so we had a great view of Tampere from the 9th floor. The room was clean, functioning and comfortable. Breakfast was good but quite crowded, we had to stay in line for a while to get food. I think it would be a good idea to arrange the buffet so that there would be two lines for getting food instead of one right now. This could be easily done by rearranging the furniture a bit.

Vantaa, Finland105 contributions112 helpful votes
Nice new hotel in a fair location. Clean and things in order. BUT be aware that this Finnish hotel has a fully American policy for bookings with breakfast. In other words you have to be extra-extra careful when selecting the room/rate in order to get it inclusive with breakfast when dealing with their own marriot.com website. FYI: It is the standard custom and assumption that each and every booking in a Finnish hotel DOES include the breakfast in the room rate (unless otherwise stated), and for that reason I did not pay too much attention to it when booking, hence fully my mistake. But I am a tad disappointed since outside Finland I would understand this policy, but not in Finland. The girls at reception did show me how to click around on some sub-tab on the website for "special packages" to find the rate with breakfast, not intuitive. Definitely a non-standard thing, and something one misses very easily if not a frequent user of this hotel chain. Adding the service upon check-in would have been 20e extra per person which is definitely not a good deal for a standard 3* hotel buffet breakfast. And strangely enough, having ~4 thousand Marriot points was not enough to pay for them either (and a combo of points+cash was apparently not possible at all?). Well, now I know better, and will stay in some other chain the next time around.
