This summer hotel Villa Aria is perfect for attending a performance at the Savonlinna Opera Festival. It is in easy walking distance from the train and from the medieval castle (Olavinlinna) where operas take place. Rooms have small kitchen facility, high ceilings, private bathrooms, and very much natural light. It is not a modern hotel but rather recalls the more...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was large with lots of windows. The first thing my husband said when we walked in was "this place smells like a hospital". I replied funny you would say that...! If you don't know this place is an old hospital. The lady in the front desk was very friendly and helpful. She...

Ideally located for visitors to the opera festival the hotel has a wonderful view of the lake and the city. Forthcoming staff. The builiding as well as its facilities signal its past as an institution. There is no TV and there is no daily cleaning. However, the room we stayed in was equipped with refridgerator as well as a small...

Beautiful and well restored old hospital. More like hostel than hotel except the price, which was four star hotel level. Excellent and beautiful location by the lake and not far away from the market place and Olavinlinna.

This lovely old hospital has been turned into student housing with tiny kitchens in smallish rooms. The rooms are light and peaceful. Pretty much all of the rooms have stairs so families travelling with children at the age of loving climbing and everything that is prohibited, this is not for you. The breakfast is quite ok considering that this isn't...

Pros: Beautiful location and building. Cons: it was a hot summer weekend and the room was very hot. Not very good sound insulation, though the other guests did not disturb. A small 120 cm bed.

This really isn't an hotel, it's a student residence which rents out rooms during the summer. The reception is manned (by really nice receptionists) from around 2 pm - 9 pm so definitely advise them if you are going to arrive at any other time. On arrival I was given a key to my room plus another to the front...

I stayed at Villa Aria for two nights with friends and it was just what we expected for the money - which wasn't bad at all. The location was peaceful, a stone's throw off the center, so you could get a good night's sleep. Basic rooms, perhaps a bit small for three women with their luggage.. We would have liked...

As it named as "summer hotel", I won't expect too much with the price 78 euro for one night. I wan't stay during the opera and ballet festival, the room price is then lower. Breakfast is served only in opera and ballet festival. But they provided us a free breakfast card and -6 euro discount at market place (assigned restaurent)....

Stayed here one night with my wife for the Opera festival. This seems to be one of Savonlinna's student dormatorys that are turned into a so called "summer hotel" for the festivals. The room rate was something like 140 euros. Small hard beds, Ikea furniture. Breakfast with limited options. Not much else. I.e. the hotel offers very little for the...
