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.

Kolin Keidas is a very different style of accommodation! Great location in the national park - it’s literally on the trails - and ten minutes walk to the main road, where there’s a couple of food places, a pub, a supermarket etc…. We stayed in the old building which has four rooms for use in summer. Two up and two down. The room was basic. One single bed and a bunk bed. A small dressing table, lamp, fan/heater and a plug socket. That’s it. Our room was up a very steep flight of stairs. This would definitely be an issue for some less mobile people. It was the only room with a window, which was great, except there was no blind or curtain, and it was midsummer! We had to cover the window as best we could with a sheet. The kitchen in the main building was ok for making simple food, but the fridge was packed, so not a place to arrive with lots of groceries. Breakfast was included in the rate. It was great. Perfect before a day’s hiking. The sauna was awesome. As other people have said, it really is the stand out feature of the property. We had a 45 minute session to ourselves. Drawbacks: The mosquitoes, flies and other biting insects were a total pain. They really affected our enjoyment unfortunately. Wifi is poor - it only works in the main building, so of limited use to us. The bathroom situation isn’t good - there are two compost toilets in a separate block for everyone to use. This is ok, but that’s all there is. No bathroom or shower. There are bowls of water in the sauna for washing but it didn’t seem appropriate to be using soap in there, and this was only in the evening. Nowhere to wash in the morning. And nowhere to brush teeth. I asked the owner and she told me to use the kitchen sink. This really didn’t feel right when others were using it! Our stay would have been enhanced by some clearer instructions. Because of the property’s eco credentials, there’s nowhere to wash clothes. For more than an overnight stay, these things would definitely become a problem. With a bit of thought and not very much work, these obstacles could be overcome then it really would be a great place to stay for more than a night. But for an overnight stay, it was fantastic!

Ok place to sleep one night, but I don’t really get the top rating. The “traditional 19th century cottage” means a storage building with no windows! Really, we slept in a room with no windows and a door that is approximately 135 cm high. No bathrooms, only shared outdoor toilets and a sauna you have to pay extra to use. No regular butter for bread at breakfast, only “herb butter” and tomato spread. The staff was nice, but the accommodation isn’t that great.

I would highly recommend this place! The atmosphere is lovely and the surrounding farmhouse feel is nice. Food and breakfast is super, all ecological and own grown. The location to near by nature sight's is also perfect, just couple minutes walk everywhere. The sauna is also wonderful, and the animals (sheep and chicken). Will stay again!

I spend two nights in Kolin Keidas and it was lovely farm like experience! They have lambs, chickens and a dog and traditional finnish sauna and outhouse. Breakfast was very good and organic. Locations is great: the path for hiking trails start from the corner of their yard. Staff is very friendly and nice!

My bosses daughter worked here last year in the Cafe Mandala and on the little farm and so my boss recommended me that gem in koli nationalpark. When we arrived there the sun was shining and we felt completely relaxed from one second to the other. Marianne showed us around and then we went for short hike to the three "summits" Ukko-koli, akka-koli and paha-koli. We had a wonderful view from up there. Back "home" we were looking forward to the delicious homemade dinner and the real finnish sauna. As there are no showers for guests, you take it in the sauna after relaxing and sweating. Strange at the beginning but very interesting and good in the end. The breakfast the next morning was great. Fine assortment of fresh tea, freshly baked bread rolls, eggs, porridge, red berries soup, smoothie and much more. all fresh and ecological. We are sad that we only could stay for just one night. But it was worth every second. If you have any kind of question about the area or where to go next, Marianne and Joona were very helpful and took their time.
