    Recommended city centre hotel for good price.

    nothing to complain about.

    It's been very recently renovated, everything was brand new. comfortable bed, nice and clean bathroom, friendly staff good wifi. breakfast was ok, but the scrambled eggs were horrible. looked like it was made of plastic and tasted the same. but there were other options so you can have a nice breakfast anyway.

    It is annoying how breakfast ends at sharp 10 on a weekend day, and cleaners are there rushing you along to finish up a little before 10. Same with the cleaners making noise outside the room from 10 am when the checkout time is 12.

    Clean and modern room at great price. Wifi with no pass is great, but this means of course there is a lot of non-guests using it and capacity did peak a bit.

    Staff was really friendly from the beginning. They even got us a bigger room since I was travelling with a friend. Told us everything we needed to know and more. Breakfast was available until 11am on Sundays, which was nice. We got there around 10.30 and all the food was still fresh and available. Just vitamin juice was out. Even the bread was still warm. The location is perfect, just in the city center. There are also lots of area 2 parking available few blocks away from the hotel (free from 2pm). Will come back to this one, the next time I'm coming to Vaasa.

    The friendliness of the staff!
    • Business trip
    • Solo traveller

    The friendliness of the staff! Firstly, they put me into a quiet room as requested. Secondly, when I complained the second night due to construction works which started at midnight in front of my hotel room ((the construction site did not belong to the hotel), staff offered me a different room for the night, but that room was very noisy due to a loud air conditioning. I returned to my old room, did not sleep well, but staff placed a really nice basket full of chocolate, nuts, and fruits on my desk the other day, and made sure I could sleep better the next night. That was a kind gesture which I appreciated a lot. Overall all staff members have been incredibly friendly! Big plus :-) Breakfast was good, too, and the location spot on. Will always go back when in Vaasa :-)

    -We asked for a peaceful double room by the booking. We got twin room just below a bar which had very loud cabaret untill midnight. The bar is not normally open -this weekend they had the show. Walls are thin and music from the next room was heard very clearly until 4 a.m. - Building was a bit old. Rooms very Basic. - I t was a bit unclear where are the elevators to rooms or parking. - Dusty shaving mirror

    - Location in the centre of town and shopping area. - Free parking ticket because we did not get the double bed - Lots of options at breakfast - View to the market place - Free earplugs

    There is something special and not necessarily that positive about many Finish hotels including that one. They all seem to belong to early 1990's era with no change. It is difficult to pin point what that is - but you have that feeling of being in a hostel with a high price tag...

    Good location right in the centre of town with car park right under. Good breakfast with quite a variety of choice. Friendly staff.

    Very difficult to find the reception. Finding the parking is way too complicated(closes at10 pm!!). They tried to make things a bit overengineered and we really didnt appreciate this on our holidays: unlogic and confusing lift system, entrances , you need a badge for everything. One of the badges didn t worked ( they tried to change it 2 more times-still didn t worked). Please just keep it simple.
