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.

Stayed at Sparre with my two boys (10 and 8 yrs) in their Superior room which was very spacious and nice looking. TV set was also good as we watched Finland beat Ireland 1-0 :) After the game we went to large and tidy sauna, and in the morning had very versatile and well-prepared breakfast.

Staff was helpful and nice, so overall very pleasant stay and really good value for money.

A bathroom can be build without floor heating, but then the floor material has to be water proof. Unfortunately rhis is nor the case ( at least in the room we were) the floor was tiled and as water seeps through the seams as it does sooner or later anyway and mold will start to grow under the tiles. A strong smel mild greets you in the bathroom. Pity, since otherwise the hotel was quite nice except for some street noise in the rooms on the street side and and well situated..

Staff is really helpful. When you arrive Sundays after desk closingtime, they will arrange codes and an envelope for you. Any question will be answered in no time. There is a possibility to park your car underground, they will tell you where that is. €10 a night. Location is perfect, When you cross the main Street you're in the old town of Porvoo. Breakfast is very nice. Rooms are clean and the beds are really fine.

My husband came to Porvoo on business for a few days so we decided to come with him and stay at Hotel Sparre. We were really pleased with how welcoming the hotel was. We booked two rooms and they made sure we had adjoining rooms without us even having to request it. The breakfast was very tasty and because my husband was at work and the children were tired we requested a late check out till 2pm which worked perfectly. The rooms are very comfortable and the beds are cosy. The location is great and the old town area is just up the road. All in all we had an excellent stay.

Small and nice little hotel in very good location in the middle of city. The staff was very friendly and breakfast quite simple. Rooms were small but clean. Parking place in the cellar was good but entrance hard to find.

Definitely a bad experience and far much expensive for what it is. the water from the shower took the entire night to drain and in the morning the bathroom was still like a swimming pool. TV remote control was not working, quite bad wifi; staff not very helpful. Breakfast was also not satisfactory. Porvoo is very little so it`s not complicated to be close to the center! would not recommend a stay here.

Stayed for 3 nights. Our room was facing a busy street, I woke up constantly to the sounds of the traffic. If you book a room from Sparre definitely ask for a room facing the inner yard. Only then you can get some sleep.

Breakfast was ok. It would be nice if the breakfast time could be longer, 06:30-09:00 was too early for me. On holiday I personally do not like waking up so that I don't miss the breakfast.

The room had a small tv, double bed, toilet with a shower. Very basic and perhaps a little outdated.

This hotel definitely needs a renovation. New windows & doors with better soundproofing are necessary.

The staff is friendly, no complaints of it. The location is also great, all the shops and the old quarter are near.

Hotel is very old, furniture spotty, room had weird smell. And you must reserve parking to get the parking spot for your car. Seemed that one person (very kind) was doing everything checking in, billing, breakfast serving and cleaning dishes.

A hotel in dire need of a serious overhaul. Breakfast is not very good, bed is wiggly, part of shower wall is missing, sofa is really uncomfortable and free wifi is a disaster... Staff is pleasant, though. That's the only thing saving this hotel from a 1/5.
