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.

I stayed in this hotel for one night, room 343.

Prior to my arrival, I had asked for a room without a feather lamp, as I am allergic to those and from a previous visit I knew they have those. At the reception, I was assured that my message had been received and the room had been hand-picked to be good for persons with allergies. Indeed, I was very happy with the room, there was nothing to cause me allergy and cleaning had also been done very well. The hotel room was large enough even for two and there was enough storage space. There was also enough space in the toilet/bathroom for me and the shower functioned well. The water did not run all over the bathroom but was always contained in the shower area. The view was to a street below which was nice as snow had just arrived and everything outside was covered in it. There was no air conditioning, but the room temperature was good and it was possible to adjust the temperature and fan speed.

I also found the breakfast to be excellent. There were local varieties on offer, particularly breads, which was nice. Otherwise the selection was also extensive with different kinds of yoghurt, vegetables, and berries, for example.

The receptionists were very polite and helpful. The location was handy in the city center, 10-15 minutes walk to the railway station. Despite being in the center, the room was rather quiet. I could not hear anything from outside the hotel, although there was minor noise from another room closeby, I think, from moving furniture. However, I was not bothered by this noise, it was very minor. I cannot comment on parking spaces as I did not have a car in Lappeenranta then.

If ever back at Lappeenranta, I would definitely consider this hotel again.

After staying two nights at the Scandic Patria, this hotel was a fresh breeze starting from the modern lobby.

This hotel has two wings, old and new. The hotel is attached to the new and modern IsoKristiina mall. There are only two room floors but the floors are huge with a labyrinth of hallways.

Our Superior Queen room was ready at 15:00 after a third check-in attempt. I wonder why hotels cannot automatize the check-in process and send an SMS when the room is ready. At least, when there are not many rooms in the category which has been booked. At the first attempt, we were already told that our room has a sauna. So we were assigned a particular room.

The sauna was a pleasant surprise because it was not mentioned in the room description. Superior Queen rooms are theme rooms and have different names according to the theme. Our room was named as a cottage.

The room had fresh decor but was sparsely furnished. Especially the storage for clothes was very limited. You really got the feeling that you are staying in a summer cottage.

The sauna was three times bigger than we had at Scandic. The bathroom floor was slippery because of the wrong type of tiling. The bed was firm and very comfortable.

The breakfast was served at the Saga Event venue. It had a good selection of food.

Friendly and cosy service again in hotel Lappee. My golden retriever chose her bed immediately as we got in the room. Extra cost for dog 15 € for which she got towel, water bowl and snacks. Hotel parking is in the same building and lifts take you directly to your floor.

We drove to this hotel in the evening and found a free parking spot just a minute’s drive away,But as we had a lot of luggage to carry, we decided to drive to the hotel entrance which was through their paid car park - one so tight, it was impossible to exit or enter the car without banging against the neighbouring car doors. We asked the lady at the reception if we can park outside but she informed us the only other options were to drive to the neighbouring mall’s paid parking or park 15 mins away. The latter option we knew was not true as we had just pulled up in a free spot outside. Nevertheless, we were too tired from our drive and decided to leave the car overnight at the hotels’s car park, hoping to find it scratch free next morning.

Anyways, the receptionist then went on to check us in and “very helpfully” mentioned that breakfast was until 11:30am next morning. Both of us were pleasantly surprised and confirmed with her it was indeed available until 11:30am. Next morning , we went down for breakfast at 10:30am to be informed that the restaurant stops serving breakfast at 10am. We went to the reception to confirm this and they advised the same. There were 4 people that morning at the reception and only the lad remembered to apologise for the error. As we turned to leave, the 3 ladies started giggling and burst into full blown laughter even before we were out of earshot. I had to turn back and check if this was really happening and they were indeed laughing at us, and they were.

At checkout, one of them asked us if we enjoyed our stay, apart from the breakfast incident. I did ask if the hotel was full since we were given the room furthest away from the lift (we couldn’t help but notice the distance with our 2 huge check-in bags and handbags), to which she responded there are rooms farther away on the next floor. I said I suppose those rooms are allotted when the hotel’s running on full capacity and left.

To summarise why I considered the stay a bad experience, 1) wrong information was given about car park 2) unnecessary and incorrect information was given about breakfast (we normally get to breakfast at 9am) which makes me wonder if this was out of pure malice 3) unprofessional staff at the front desk generally who need to be given a refresher on customer service.

We are thankful that we drove around Finland after this mishap to experience excellent customer service at all other hotels, otherwise we’d have left the country with a level of bitterness.

I stayed in this hotel for one night, room 3010. I have stayed there a few times before and it has always been very good for me.

Prior to my arrival, I had asked for a room without a feather lamp, as I am allergic to those and from a previous visit I knew they have those. Already before my arrival I got confirmation that this request has been taken into account and the room was very good for me. There was nothing to cause me allergy and cleaning had also been done well. The hotel room was large enough and there was enough storage space as well. There was also enough space in the toilet/bathroom for me and the shower functioned well. I also found the breakfast to be excellent, as usual: local varieties and extensive selection. Service was good and the location is convenient in the city center. The room was peacefully quiet during the night.

If ever back at Lappeenranta, I will definitely consider this hotel again.

We got a room from the old side. Not yet renovated. For the price of 140€/night you would expect a bit more quality. The beds are very soft and the pillows worn out. Parking had to be paid separately, which
One would expect to be included in the room price.

The rooms and the hotel are clean and modern, in good shape because they are new and maintained. The rooms are quiet and the location is nicely central to Lappeenranta. The mall below has two grocery stores, a pharmacy, several restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream and other stuff, so you don't need to go outside for anything. The aesthetics are pleasant and tasteful, the staff was helpful. The only issue I have is that the hotel's upgrade fell prey to a trend I've seen in many, if not most of the upgrades happening in recent years in hotels and other businesses; the lighting systems they install are all computerised and wireless, and as such the only lights you can go to and just turn them on or off are the reading lights by the bed. The rest are clusters of lights that you choose. Selecting one of those gives you a package of lighting. So in the room I was in, you can either be in a pitch black room with just a reading light on, or everything is all lit up. Turning just the overhead light off only and having a light or two on in a corner so the room is lit but chill isn't possible. The designers probably like doing this because the room can be reconfigured without digging the wires out of the walls. .In the room I had, t means that the big overhead light is right in my eye line if I'm in bed reading, unless the room is pitch black. And if you leave a dimmed light on in the bathroom dimmed and the door at a crack so you can see your way to it in the night, it turns itself off after a bit. Fortunately I typically keep a small flashlight with me, so I can feel around for it and use to get to the bathroom without waking my wife with every light in the room blazing , but I shouldn't have to bring a flashlight with me to a hotel to use the toilet. I could go on, but I've had to ask for older and shabbier rooms in some hotels like this one that haven't been 'upgraded' so I don't have to deal with this nonsense. All the Sokos hotels seem to be doing this, so unfortunately I'll be avoiding an otherwise decent hotel chain.
And little do hotel operators know: this hotel has 250 some rooms; my smallish room has 10 switches in it each ,with batteries. At some point a couple of years down the road they are going to be hiring electricians to replace 2500 little lithium batteries.

Dear Sir James, thank You for your throughout review :). It was nice to read it. I am sorry that the lightning solution did not serve You well. There are three different kind of settings in the lightning system: all on, all off or dim mod lightning. Plus the reading lights by the bed. All systems have its pros and cons. We do our best to choose the solutions that would serve well our customers but for example, also sustainability aspect. (I am happy to tell you that there are no batteries inside the lightning switch at he rooms - it would really be a disaster if there was...) Hopefully we will meet again! Best regards Katja, hotel manager

Due to covid-19 we were not able to travel abroad and we decided to stay three nights in Lappeenranta. Our stay was just perfect. Rooms were spacious and clean and breakfast was a lot to choose from. Venn winebar downstair is really nice also. The location in the mall was great. For families the sauna and pool are fantastic. In the middle of the week there was only few people and we really enjoyed the sauna experience. The only negative was that every night there were the same drunk men and one of them jumped to the pool naked. Disgusting. Obviously he could not read the signs of jumping and using the swimsuits. I think these heroes are staying at this hotel while working somewhere in Lappeenranta during the weekdays.
Staff of the hotel was nice and helpful. I have nothing to complain and I will definitely stay again.

It was our first family trip to Lappeenranta.
All stuff of the hotel is kind and always answers on any question (about s-card, to book taxy and etc.)
We liked breakfast and the location of the hotel, because it is located in the center of the city.
We will recommend your hotel to our friends.

Hotel was fully booked because of heavy music event but everything went well. Rooms were quite basic but clean and you couldn't here a sound outside although there was a busy street under you window. Breakfast was also ok, so all in all would stay again.
