I have read some negatives comments about this hotel, but I think it is rather good. I had a nice single room with laminate flooring and a huge shower cabin. The breakfast was good and the lady behind the desk was friendly and helpful. The reception is closed at the evenings, so you need a number code to get in.

We visited Kouvola for two days and stayed at Sommelo for the nights. The hotel is very basic hotel. Room was clean even though the bath was outdated and it should be renovated. Sleep quality was good and there was no noises to be heard. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was ok.

Windows can not be opened, only a small part, but it is very small it is not enough. The room had a smell as if where used to smoke. We have seen in a hotel, two saunas but they both were only for men or only for women. Maybe they have a sauna for family or company, as well, but...

My friends booked this hotel blind without checking TA first. Having stopped there and since read the reviews I think it gets a bad press but does ask for it.

This is supposedly a hotel but is the first we have used where the reception is closed from midday on Sunday, instructions how to get in are on the door and are in poor English. Basically you have to walk right round the hotel block to find the bar whose owner is the guardian of the hotel although he doesnt...

Reason: The cheapest hotel on this region on Holidays. Location: In the center of small town. Easy to get, but road missing some signs of direction if you are doing without Navigation. Room: We had a calm room, with river view. The floor was with carpet and we have some allergic to this carpet. Sleep quality was good. Hotel has...

The Hotel Sommelo appears to have been built in the 1970s, and apparently has remained unchanged since then. The reception, foyer and restaurant are dark, gloomy and unwelcoming and the bedroom corridors, plain white brick walls without a hint of other decoration, are almost prison-like in their bleakness. Despite there being over 250 rooms, the reception closes at 9:00pm and...
