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.

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.

I stayed in this hotel for One Night. The Room was small and the bathroom was very small. The toilet Seat was not attached to the floor which was bad. The location is Good within a shopping centre and in the city centre. I thought that the hotel breakfast was Good, but quite sparse compared with many other hotels. Everything was Good and I enjoyed it.

Hello Arne T, I am very sorry that your visit with us did not go well. We should have noticed the toilet ourself. JFYI: We have 2 different sized rooms. If you will visit us in the future, just ask for "a bigger double" at the reception. Have a good springtime! BR Katja, hotel manager

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.

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.

A standard room w all you can expect. During a heatwave a well-fuctioning aircon felt even luxurious. Brekky had the usual options, but even though v busy everything was tidy, fresh & well-maintained. During high season, the room price was a bit steep.

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.

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.

We went looking for reliable Scandinavian standards, and that we found. Very friendly staff. Plentiful a breakfast. Coffee and tea very bad, undrinkable even. I doubt the thermos and/or the coffeemaker were ever properly cleaned.
