The hotel has an old feel to it but the charm is not there. The lack of ac in the room will affect the sleep especially in summer. Breakfast is ok but nothing special like most Radisson hotels are known for.
We stayed in a superior double room equipped with a private sauna. The room was very nice and there was a great view across the city. A coffee machine was a nice surprise. The pillows were a bit too soft to our taste and there could have been some more electric sockets in the room. The hotel staff is very friendly and relaxed, we felt ourselves really welcomed. The building is filled with history and renovated with a good taste. The breakfast was very good and it was served in a beautiful hall. The location is perfect, close to the centre. So, it is hard to find any reason not to choose this lovely hotel when staying in Tampere.
Only here for a short stay but lovely helpful staff and a beautiful place to stay. The staff will happily lock your luggage away safely if you arrive before check in. The hotel looks good from the outside but the inside is amazing. Beautiful dark wood everywhere reminds you of yesteryear. We were lucky and had one of the rooms with a balcony and a beautiful view of the river. When we come back next will stay longer and definitely in this hotel.
During our stay new covid regulations came into force. We returned from a very busy day to be confronted with a polite security guard asking to see our covid passports. On scanning the UK document it was not recognised even though we had 2 vaccinations plus booster. It also didn't recognise image on mobile phone. We were unable to join our colleagues for dinner that night and were confined to our room. However after a days work the following day we went directly to a restaurant with our colleagues and our documents were recognised by their scanners as they were at other subsequent venues and at the airport. I suggest that a hotel group with such a reputation falls short of its responsibility to its clients if the staff do not have access to up to date equipment as in this case. We spent a very unpleasant evening as we were worried that we might not be allowed to board our plane if our certificates were unrecognisable. Thankfully that did not happen but a very stressful time was unnecassarily placed on us because of this. As to the hotel our room was extremely warm at night as the radiator was unable to be turned down lower than 14 degrees. We propped open the window with the iron. Also sockets for the kettle were not able to be used near the hospitality tray.…
Private trip to sightsee Tampere Location of hotel is great, 10 min walking from train station. There is a bistrot downstairs and sadly no other dedicated bar. Although there are a bunch of sofas and couches in the entrance area.
Tammer is radiating history and well-renoved respecting history. Lobby and breakfast room are beautiful. Rooms are bit small but combine well old and new. Old-style toilets with high toilet tanks and bathtubs underline this. Rooms have good selection of amneties (iron, ironing board). Hotel did not seem to have a gym. Minus for a business hotel. Sauna was closed due to covid. There was a restaurants down-stairs. Not too many reasons to linger at hotel, but as it is very central, this was not a problem. Fabriikki and Finlayson renovated factory areas are just next-door. Parking is limited. There are city 6-8 parking places in the front of entrance, 18€ day. You can either pay at the reception or through apps. There are parking garages close-by but it means you have to drag luggage all the way to hotel. Breakfast was good. Ambiance of breakfast hall is a major plus. Reception was swift and polite. But all in all self-service hotel. All in all, you pay much for historical ambiance (often lacking in Finnish hotels) and central location.…
Hotel Tammer is a classic, built in 1929 and restored with care. The location is perfect by the river Tammerkoski, in the heart of Tampere. Next to many museums and walking distance from the main railway station. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, some services were restricted. I didn’t even go to breakfast, which was a bit pricey and not included in the room charge. Hotel’s interior is full of stylish details and worth of a little indoor expedition. Outdoor terrace is also nice (in summertime), a perfect place to have a drink before exploring the nightlife of Tampere.
I was disappointed to find out that standards had deteriorated at this hotel. Sauna closed, no newspapers, no candy or lobby coffee service. But the worst was breakfast. Room number was checked without greetings, coffee was not served to the table and it ran out as well. Not sure why it is called ”Super breakfast” as freshly pressed orange juice and omelettes cost extra. There is also almost no parking outside the hotel. Overall not acceptble as the room prices are quite high.
The hotel was very central, 10 min from the train station, we arrived at 11.45am at the hotel to drop the bags and go visiting, but we were given a room straight away which was great. We were even given the choice of whether we wanted a view on the park or on the other side (we took the park :-) ) Staff was very welcoming, and helpful. The room was very nice, loads of space, the bathroom was beautiful, a certain charm! Breakfast is brilliant, lots of choices at the buffet, I could try more of the Finnish breads which I loved (espacially the sesame one!). We were able to use the private sauna for 30 euro (for a couple) for 2 hours which we had not planned but was great! Fantastic stay in Tampere! Kiitos!
Very friendly and helpful staff. A decent gluten free selection. However, the bread did not taste fresh. The bistro was beautiful and staff could not be more helpful. Hotel is slightly rundown but clean. The bed was very comfortable. The room was bright and airy.
