Hotel lobby, rooms and restaurants are well maintained. Rooms are small but clean and have everything you need. Personnel is very friendly and helpful. Hotel is well located in the town center and has free parking places in front of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was good.

Weekends are very noisy bc of the club on 1st floor. Rooms are nice, pool area and gym are very good. ------- Ensimmäisen kerroksen baarista kuuluu äänet vähän liiankin hyvin huoneisiin. Kuntosali todella hyvä!

During the evening I noticed that the temperature in room is rather high (24 °C) but expected it to go down when AC starts. At the evening temperature exceeded 26 °C (outside temp. 0 °C) and I heard that sauna is located below my room and thereby the...

One night stay for a business trip. Good location close to meeting place. Friendly staff, excellent service. Room was average, clean but little outdated. No noise related issues. Lots of free parking space.

Basic hotel of the Sokos chain. Clean, reception service ok, good location in the city center, free parking. Family room was a bit small, but worked for us. Bathroom had a problem with the bidet that was really impossible to use, the tap and the toilet seat were at the opposite ends of the room. Who designs these things? The...

Kaarle is a nice hotel in the centrum of Kokkola. There is friendly staff, the room was clean and breakfast was very good and hearty. There are two dining restaurants in the hotel. The food tasted good.

We are a family of 5 and stayed for one night, but have stayed at this hotel several times before. Basic service, no complaints except that coffee has always tasted bad. Staff is friendly and they have a little library with children's books you can borrow for a bed time story.

Hello. I am so sorry to hear that you felt so bad as our guest. Some guests unfortunately ignore that our hotel is a non smoking hotel and smoke cigarettes in the room. And the smell will be there for some days. Sorry to hear about the breakfast too. I will speak about it with our personnel. We usually get...

We visited the hotel as a conference guests. The pre-bookings and other organising before the event was very well handled. Also the reception desk was very helpful and knew all the answers to our questions. Our room was on the 2nd floor. The room is tidy, but the bathroom & shower are separate and a bit worn out. For example...

Had a late flight and took a shuttle bus from Airport to City Centre, where this Hotel is(right next to Market Place). There ain't too much competition in Kokkola, so high season price is not that cheap. Little renovation going on downstairs, on a way to their Restaurant/Breakfast Room. Room was clean, but real basic. Bed wasn't comfiest I've slept,...
