    Nice

    Beautiful location, friendly reception staff, breakfast, large room.

    Room was dated, and too hot. No air conditioning in the room. Internet connection was very slow.

    Convenience, quiet and comfortable. The restaurant for dinner was very good, but the breakfast was only a 2 out of 10.

    Location on the lake and near the centre. The room was nice and clean.

    The breakfast room was very uncosy and the service poor. The shower didn't work properly.

    Good overall hotel. Staff were courteous, rooms were clean and up-to-date, location and parking were good. I would stay here again.

    Strange that the pool and sauna were only open from 18:00-21:00. 2 meters of steps up from the parking lot to lobby are a pain with luggage. Breakfast was decent, but not overly special.

    The room was not clean, in particular the toilet and towels. We changed the room for that reason but also the second room was not very good.

    Lakeview was excellent. Scandic breakfasts appear to be uniformly good after staying at one in Tampere.

    Nice

    We took a double room with lake view which was spacious and offered very relaxing view of the lake Kallavesi. The room was spacious and had a big wall-to-wal window which made the view great but served as heat collector as well. We spent two days there. These days were really hot (24 degr Celcius) considering Kuopio's weather standards. The room at this side have all an eastern orientation, so every morning the sun rays hit directly the big glass panels of the windows and cause room temperature to rise noticeably. So what ? you may ask, we switch on air- condition and no problem. The problem is that the rooms have not air- condition, so the final result is a greenhouse effect in the room which makes stay in the room practically unbearable from 8.30 pm until late afternoon. I consider the absence of air-condition absoloutely unacceptable for a hotel of such a category and price. The breakfast was rich in variety but most food I tried there were tasteless and seemed at least neutral. Surely, the main issue was the high temperature problem in the rooms. If you visit Kuopio during summer days, stay away from this hotel. Some previous reviewers had warned about this but I (unfortunately) didn't take them into account. So, you have been warned...

    Good location near the lake, only a 5 minutes walk from the harbour. Free wifi everywhere in the hotel, free printing in the lobby

    Average rooms, average service.

    I liked absolutely nothing about this hotel.

    This hotel is so outdated, the rooms are tacky, the lobby is tacky, the restaurant is depressing and the food is actually really bad. I recommend to avoid this hotel.
