    Good

    Location was quite good, basically on main stret of Tampere. Railway station is across the street, but I couldn't hear any voice from there.

    Couple things - from my piont of view hotel shpold have free parking facilities, especiall at that price. I paked car on street next to hotel to find out where the hotel parking is and got ticket per 50Eur. Other thing - suddenly the fire alarm started to work at about 4 am. Speaker worked the room for about 15min. And then when it was deleted after about 20min, when I had to sleep already placed another notice, the anxiety lifted. Needless to say, that no explanation or compensation from the hotel party was not given. Understand me correctly, if you arrive at the hotel around 1:30 am and 7am to be at work, then it needs something a little sleep. Next time I would choose another accommodation.

    Superb

    The room was comfortable and large. We had a view of the station which was great. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were great (the best I have ever slept on!). The location was very convenient. The staff were friendly.

    Whilst convenient the location around the hotel is a little run down and seedy. The staff in the Piazza were very helpful, but the actual 'Piazza' is rather odd and didn't match the theme of the hotel.

    The location, which is very central.

    The receptionist didn't pay attention to us, when we checked in. We didn't get informed about where our room was located or where and when the breakfast would be served. I had to tell him my name twice, although I had just given him our reservation information on paper. I also had to ask him twice whether we could check out later than 12 o'clock the next day, because he didn't seem to be listening. Instead he was focusing on arguing with previous customers about a payment. The curtains and the bedspread were stained. I expected some quality for the price, so I was very disappointed on the outcome.

    The hotel was very comfortable when traveling with young children. We got an upgrade of room because the reservation system allowed us to book standard room even thought there is not enough room in standard room when traveling with two young kids.

    Superb

    Great location. Clean room and hotel. Very good breakfast!

    Kettle and tea in the room would be nice addition! Also few spare pillows would be nice since pillows in Finland are uselessly flat!
