I was worried after my not so well experience with other Sokos hotels in Finland, but this one has just proved me wrong. Staff was very friendly and helpful, hotel is just few hundred meters away from Savonlinna railway station, the main city's attraction Olavinlinna castle is in less than 1 km distance. Beyond the railway station there are some... More

I've stayed here a few times on a work trip. Great location, friendly staff and nice restaurant are not enough to hide the fact that the building has seen better days. The hallways etc are in serious need of some renovation. The rooms are basic and should be updated as well... had the feeling that the last time something was... More

The hotel is located near everything and the staff was very helpful. Good view of the lake. Parking was in a secure garage. I hated to leave because the bathroom in our disabled room was oneq of the best we have encountered--even the shower chair had handles to helpgettung on and off.

I have been to this hotel a couple times per year over the past 12 years on business, the staff is always friendly and accommodating. The hotel is right in the middle of town and walking distance to the restaurants, stores, and clubs. There are not many choices to stay when in town, but this hotel is always good.

I have stayed at the hotel a few times and the location by the lake is great. From the top floor bar you have a nice view. The only thing I do not like (especially in winter), is that you have to go to the breakfast room outside of the hotel. A chilly wake up at -30 degrees :) A... More
