This was hotel was OK but nothing more. The rooms were basic, the breakfast extremely basic, the coffee terrible, it was OK overall. The one pleasant surprise was the adjoining bar and restaurant which were both much better than expected. I had expected to have to wander the streets for dinner, but while driving into town I realised there wasn't...

Kaarle is value for money in Kokkola. Nothing fancy but everything is fine. Great location, good train, flight connections, Food is OK, drinks are close, gym is so very nice! In Kokkola there isn't anything better!

Stayed here overnight during a business trip in January 2017. Pleasant, clean, nice people at the reception. The rooms are on the small side, but everything you need is there. Free parking outside, and the breakfast buffé is generous and tasty.

We stayed for one night in the Presidental suite of Kaarle and it was excellent. Hotel locates next to marketsquare of Kokkola so you can enjoy downtowns opportunities with ease. Presidental suite is most suitable for couples.

Located in the city center, clean rooms, generous breakfast, but there are two minuses, at least for me. These are: small size of the rooms (it is just for midgets) and it was very cold in the shower. .

When you've been to one Orignal Sokos hotel, you know what you get. Practicality and well maintained hotel, but just dont expect anything spectacular. My room at Kaarle was tidy, spacious enough, although the bathroom is tiny (shower cabinet is larger than the rest of the bath). I spent 2 nights, managed to find a spot at parking without troubles,...

Best hotel in town and in central location. This time however parking was full as usual but also very slippery because of ice. Also checking in took long time, two ladies didn't hurry... Over all good stay, I will come back again.

Statyed for one night in this standard basic hotel. Nice service in reception, basic good quality rooms, restaurant and breakfast. Typical chain hotel, ok, but nothing special. Room was surprisingly prizy, not sure why, maybe there is not so many hotels in Kokkola :)
