We were visiting our friends in the Taipalsaari region in July and they suggested to visit Hotel Saimaanranta for a play and swim on the beach and a meal in the restaurant. We took our kids, including a 4months old baby and enjoyed our time on the beach. After about an hour, a black car approached and out stepped a very angry lady, shouting with a Russian accent that this was a private beach and if we did not leave she would call the police. We could not believe how rude she was and it took quite a while to explain my British husband what was going on. The kids were most upset. There was no sign saying it was a private beach or no other warnings. We swiftly packed our bags and drove off. No need to treat people like that, keep away from this place, would not recommend it to anyone. Top class customer service (NOT) !!

Quite sympathetic place amidst the forests and lakes is located on the lakeshore of Saimaa in southern region of Finland not very far from russian border. The last one was our key reason to choose this place and it is good transit point on your way north. Despite the short stay we liked it here: pretty comfortable clean rooms, polite staff, excellent nature and air, good dinner with a view over the lake. Definetely can recommend it for the same reason we got here can't say anything about long-term stay here though.

Beautiful nature - pine trees, lake. A room in the style of a country house. Grilled sausages on the grill, all the facilities for this, just need to bring coals to take because the wood cost 10eur for a small box.

We stayed in this hotel several times 15 years ago. It was standard Finnish hotel with good location on the coast of Saima. The hotel had finnish service of standard level. Now the nature and the lake are still wonderfull but service became Russian. If you know that it means, you will understand it. In other case the explanation will demand too much time. Short example: bar, restaraunt was closed all time and hotel service included only accomodation. As positive example I can draw attention that the quality of the building was still good. Concerning of cleanness of the room hadn't objection also .

Since staying in tens of different hotels in tens of different countries this was my worst experience to date. Let's start from positive: - Obviously best thing was that we got our money back from the advance booking! - Location is wonderful, the nature around the hotel is very lovely. - The price would've been reasonable considering the season and location. - There were rooms available. And the negative: - The room offered was smelling dusty and moldy. The same smell were weaker around the inside corridors of the hotel. When commented with the smell we were told by the receptionist that it's a 30 year old hotel and every room smells like that. We didn't believe and checked another one and she was right: It smelled as bad. - Everything looked worn out and not been taken care for ages. - The hotel inside is like a gloomy and dark sanatorium where people who lost all hope for their lives are wondering with regretting ever putting their feet there. - I have never seen a receptionist with such a bad attitude and disregard to the place she's working. (Actually I have never met anyone in service industry like her.) Maybe breathing too long that putrid air has affected her or she has just lost all hope. I wouldn't recommend the hotel to anyone who cares for their health except maybe a masochist who would just adore the receptionist.

Do not visit this "hotel" unless you want to have a touch of 70s again.. Our room smelled like someone just have smoked. Furnitures and textiles were shabby. The reception was not open like said on the hotel pages. The price of our room was a mystery until we left, although we tried to ask it. The breakfast was worst ever. And we were definitely the only Finns there. We had to pay 100 euros for one night. The hotel is situated in a very beautiful area, but everything else is so no-no, unfortunately!
