    They should renovate some rooms a bit.

    A superb breakfast! And it’s until noon on sundays. Their restaurant Pöllöwaari is great for brekkie as well as for dinner. We had seasonal tasting menus there for dinner. Also wine selection is awesome. The best in Jyväskylä.

    No elevator (although the staff will help with luggage). Located on a busy street, although the windows muffle the sound well. Only a problem if you want to have the window open to get some fresh air.

    A very nicely renovated older building in the center of Jyväskylä. Extraordinarily friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Unusually good breakfast buffet.

    There was a hair dryer in the bathroom, but no outlet there. Also, Wi-Fi was promised in all the rooms, but my smartphone could not detect any signal the whole time I was there. Finally, it's not a good touch to make slippers a payable item on the minibar menu, especially when they don't fit someone with a 45 shoe size like me.

    The bed was indeed extra comfy, and breakfast was quite tasty. The welcome drink was a nice touch, and a good way to relax after hoofing round Jyväskylä, as I had been doing since ten in the morning.
