This hotel is located next to the marketplace near the bus stop from the airport. Beware that these buses run only from Monday to Friday. There is a Carlson department store in the same building. The lobby and the reception can be found in the middle of the building. We had booked a Junior Suite which is the best category at this hotel. The senior rate was 154 euros. The three Junior Suites are located on floors 3-5 at the corner of building with marketplace views. There is a long walk from the lift. The suites are not very spacious but quite practical. The window in the bathroom was nice. There are a bathtub and a shower in the tub. It worked quite well, although we like them to be separately. There are some superior rooms with a sauna. I think they are located at the next corner without marketplace views. The senior rate would have been the same for them. There were some issues with cleaning. The body lotion was finished and not replenished the next day, although we left the bottle open. One bottle of prosecco from the minibar was also not replenished. We left the towels to be changed and one new towel had brown stains on it. That was probably more laundry than cleaning issue. The stains could not be seen until you opened the towel. During checkout, we mentioned these things and the receptionist was very apologetic. As compensation, she took our minibar charges 19 euros away from the bill. The breakfast was served on the 3rd floor in the Atlas Hall. It was a nice experience. Both mornings five minutes before the end of the breakfast, the lady in charge gave a small speech with the Savo dialect. It gave a happy start to the day.

We had an ex tempore one night stay at Lapland Hotels Kuopio, and I highly recommend it. The staff is very nice, spacious rooms, excellent bath and lobby bar, good breakfast. Nice theme decoration, not too overboard to my taste. Worth noting, the hotel has the BEST BEDS ever - wide, comfortable, excellent! The hotel is located very close to centre, easy to walk everywhere. Only minus is the parking - but when in city centre, a fee is to expected (only 10 euro, though). I highly recommend this hotel when staying in Kuopio.

This hotel is absolutely awesome! The location is perfect - A few minutes walk from market and the lake Kallavesi as well. The best thing is friendly and "lupsakka" service ("lupsakka" is a Finnish word that do not have an official translation but it is something you can find only in Pohjois-Savo and it means like cozy service and attitude). The rooms are stylish, clean and practical. The breakfast is delicious, including some local specialities (like "kalakukko"). Don't miss lately renovated sauna and gym (and lobby bar)!

We called Jahtihovi late on Christmas Day to make a booking for the same evening. Staff was very friendly and came especially to receive us, as reception was already closed for the day. We got a nice, clean family room. Beds were extremely comfortable. We parked our car into a warm garage. Breakfast was delicious. I can highly recommend Jahtihovi!

As most of the Scandic chain hotels - this one is totally in line with the standards: relatively fresh and clean, practical with the touch of elegance. Close to the lake shore and promenade. A bit overpriced in summer, I guess... however everything was as expected and definitely would recommend to consider this option to stay a day or two in Kuopio. You can even bring your helicopter here - it was amazing to see the private helicopter taking off in the front of the hotel :))

We stayed at the Rauhalahti Spa Hotel for 4 nights in August 2018. It cost €495 for a double room. It is NOT a 4 star hotel. On check-in, the staff were very friendly and our room was ready right away. The hotel itself is quite old and badly in need of a refurbishment. The room was small, with two low, twin beds with separate linen on each bed. There were two decorative cushions and a blanket over the end of the bed. These were quite old and the fabric reminded me of an old curtain!! The bathroom was small with a shower with a shower curtain and one sink. Bathrobes are provided. If you want to go to the pool, you need to bring your towel from your room with you. However we did this one morning, used our towels to dry off while we were at the pool, and when we came back, the room had been tended to by housekeeping, but they had not replaced our towels. Another thing to note about the room is that the curtains did not pull the whole way across the windows....in a country which has really long hours of daylight during the summer, this is a bit of a problem!!! The swimming pool area is OK. There are a few pools here, a few children's ones, a slide, one big heated pool which goes outdoors and then another pool more suitable for swimming lengths in. There are some jacuzzi sections in the heated pool, but no separate jacuzzi tub. The saunas are segregated and are part of the changing rooms, and swimsuits are not allowed! However I believe this is the norm in Finland. Breakfast was not great. There was a very poor selection, considering it is supposed to be a 4-star hotel. We found sound to be an issue in the bedroom. I found it difficult to sleep (also due to the bed which was not comfortable!) but in the mornnings, especially, we could hear quite clearly, everyone who passed by our door. On the Sunday morning we were awoken by a baby screaming in another room!! It would not be so bad to hear what happens right outside your door, but you should not be able to hear sounds from other rooms!! Also there is a nightclub in the hotel and we could hear the noise from there in our room on the nights it was open. The number 7 bus runs from right outside the hotel and it's about 20 mins to the centre of Kuopio which is quite handy. There is also a holiday park as part of Rauhalahti, and you can rent cabins, or camp there. I think this might be better value than staying in the hotel. In general, the hotel is OK but it was not worth €495 and it is certainly not a 4-star hotel. It desperately needs to be refurbished.

We needed a nice place to stay one night and this was really good choice. Sawo House is close to highway and very easy to drive but like others has said the traffic noise does not bother. The check in was really nice as the host showed us to our room and he also suggested the new hotel restaurant. It had opened just a week ago and it is nice and there is also big terrace. We were thinking something small to eat, but when we saw their gourmet burgers we decided to try and it was freshly made and tasty. On the terrace there was live music. Our room was just perfect for us and we slept very well. The room was nice design and beautiful, the bathroom was big and there was good selection of necessary toiletries. In the morning we had a good breakfast with nice selection. I liked the bread and well made oatmeal (kaurapuuro). I think the best part of Sawo House is the personnel, they all friendly and easy to talk to.

This was the third time we have stayed at this hotel and we are looking forward to staying here again. The staff are very polite and helpful.We stayed in a room with a balcony overlooking the lake. The spa facilities were great, with various swimming pools, saunas and steam rooms. The location of the hotel is ideal, with the centre of Kuopio being a 10 minute drive away, but also Kuopio airport is only 10 minutes away which is great if you have an early morning flight to Helsinki, as we did. If we were being really picky, the breakfast would be better if there was slightly more choice, but overall we thought the stay was great value for money.
