Good hotel, great location right in centre about 5 minutes walk to central station, rooms are decent size, only downside, walls are very thin so you can hear pretty much everything going on around. In all though good place to stay for few nights.

This was my 4th visit to Lahti in 3 years, but my 1st as a fully independent traveller - not relying on friends. I wanted to attend the winter sports weekend - ski jumping and cross country ski-ing - so a hotel in the town centre was a must have. I was not disappointed with my choice. I was delighted to find that many of the winter sports teams had also chosen this hotel as their base for the weekend, so this made the experience all the more enjoyable. Staff speak English very well, so this made conversation very easy.....as my Finnish is almost non existant.
As I had made arrangements to meet many of my Lahti friends throughout the weekend, I didn't make use of the hotel facilities as much as I could have done. On the 1 occasion which I used the restaurant during an evening, the snack which I had ordered (which filled the whole plate) was well cooked and served in very good time - fortunate as I had a tight schedule. I could not fault the quality of the food or the service of the staff.
Lahti town centre is a few minutes walk from the hotel. There are many fast food chains, restaurants, pubs and clubs to choose from if you want to socialise.
The weather - as expected - was predominantly overcast, cloudy and snowy at times, but that is to be expected in March. 1 highlight of my visit was walking across the ice in the marina area, which was still frozen.
A thoroughly enjoyable visit, and I hope to return in 2017 for the Nordic World Championships.

Good centrally located with easy access to all amenities. Large group from overseas staying in Lahti for a wedding and the hotel was very helpful in arranging transport and late checkout. Easy access to hairdressers etc. without having to go outside.

We stayed here for three nights to coincide with a visit to our family who live nearby. The hotel is beautifully located on the coast within a 10 minute drive of Porvoo (and 40 minutes from the Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport). The hotel was busier during the week with a lot of business customers and at the weekend this changed to tourists (particularly bikers when we were there). Our room was air-conditioned and very comfortable with a sea view. The breakfast was buffet style, with a range of beautiful freshly baked bread. The breakfast room become quite busy and felt a little cramped at busy periods, so an early breakfast is advisable. The swimming pool/spa complex is very good, again get there early! Breakfast and pool opening times were later on the Sunday, which made everything much busier as people wanted to get on with their day.

Dec 2011 - A nice clean hotel, free wifi in all the rooms, staff were extremely polite and helpful at all times and spoke good English. Breakfasts were good, a buffet with a wide selection of foods, all well prepared and presented. About one minutes walk from Jarvenpaa station with direct trains into Helsinki (Journey times 20 minutes, €12 return ticket). Rooms were nicely furnished in a modern style and clean. No complaints at all about this hotel. I would happily stay there again.
