Rooms in this hotel are clean and comfortable but little bit old. Restaurant in the hotel is delicious and the bar is serving nice drinks. The best hotel to stay in Kouvola in my opinion. Sauna and Jacuzzi are clean.

It's really hard to miss Sokos Hotel Vaakuna on the rim of Kouvola as it's big - and pink. The exterior is somewhat dated but luckily the interior has been renovated from time to time. The first surprise was that parking space costs 8 euros (6 with a member card) so remember to count that on top of your hotel...

The hotel is clean and confortable. Personnel is really kind and available. Rooms are spacious, silent and well equipped. Very good wifi connection. Big parking just in front of the hotel (8€ per day). The hotel also has a gym: small but with nice fitness Technogym equipment. On the ground floor there is the Fransmanni restaurant. Excellent choice!

Nice, good standard hotel. Comfy bed, basic rooms, friendly service, good breakfast. Stayed for one night during visit to Kouvola. Short walking distance from train station; doable even with small suitcase. Lively bar downstairs to grab a drink. No thrills hotel, but perfectly good for short stay.
