I was pleasantly surprised by the roominess and setup of my room. The bathroom was especially spacious and had a towel heater that actually worked! The breakfast buffet was good, not as huge a selection as some others, but in such a small town, great!
The desk person on duty Sunday afternoon when I arrived stayed a few minutes late to make sure I got my key. I hadn't realized until the morning that reception closed at 4, so I called and they asked if I could be there by then. Of course they would have made arrangements to leave a key, but I was grateful the lady waited for me. The price was a good value, too, half of what I had paid in cities.
I stayed in this hotel in June 2014 with two of my friends. We arrived by motorcycles very late in the evening and they were kind enough to offer us a room although reception was already closed. Hotel is newly refurbished and was spotless and very nice. Deal was that breakfast was not included in a price and that was okay. I would gladly stay there again.
We had one day trip to Alajärvi. We booked the hotel via internet. After that we had some special needs: we needed a very quiet room. When contacting the hotel the person representing the hotel was very friendly and able to help us.
The hotel has been totally renovated two tears ago including everything: rooms, restaurant and by adding bowling alley. We booked a three person room which was spacey enough and clean having good bathroom facilities.
Our room rate included breakfers which has plenty of variety.
The location of the hotel is very central for visiting Alajärvi. It si very suitable for families and business travellers. we can recommend the hotel.
