To get up close and personal with Olavinlinna Castle, this lakeside spot is the place to be: its impressive form looms just opposite. Offering five snug little nests in an outbuilding, this is one of Finland’s most charming hotels...
Hotel Villa Maija
Built in 1888, this is the best villa accommodation. Faultlessly restored rooms are so gosh-darned cosy and packed with character that it’s difficult to prise yourself away...
There’s something pleasing about this warm and welcoming place a block off the main drag and cheerfully tucked between the convivial ambience of its own restaurant and bar...
Among Finland’s most enchanting boutique hotels, this exquisite spot has lavishly decorated rooms, all individually designed in markedly different styles (the Africa room is really something to behold)...
One of the best hotels on the islands, this high-class spot caters well to business visitors, though water views from the balconies are tempting for anyone...
OK, this Viking-themed place isn’t going to be for everyone and the fact that it’s owned by a bikie club might dissuade some, but if you grab it by the horns it’s a whole mess of party-flavoured fun...
Bright, modern and optimistic, this inviting hotel sits in a group of renovated brick buildings, once a hospital. It’s close to town but the parkside location by the bubbling-bright stream makes it feel rural...

Four kilometres from the centre, by Kalevalakylä, this striking building of wood and concrete is a great place to stay. The pretty rooms in pastel colours mostly have tantalising lake views with sounds of the lapping water...
Academica Summer Hostel
Finnish students live well, so in summer take advantage of this residence, a superclean spot packed with features (pool and sauna) and cheery staff. The modern rooms are great, and all come with bar fridges and their own bathrooms...
Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna Vaasa
This property has well-appointed, spacious rooms with clever Scandinavian design. It’s right in the middle of the action, and the excellent rooftop bar and attached restaurants make it a good place for a metro minibreak...
Best Western Hotel Savonia
Not far from Puijo Hill, this offers easy access from the main road and decent value...
The other hotel in town is the small family-run Seurahuone, within the web of Hamina’s old town...
Hotelli Ravintola Alma
This well-appointed boutique spot has traditional wood decor and generously spaced (if rather dark) rooms with plenty of luxuries. It’s popular with visiting business folk who enjoy the restaurant and terrace area for a post-deal tipple...
Sokos Hotel Seurahuone
Towering over the kauppatori, this friendly hotel offers a bit of everything; its rooms have views, big flatscreen TVs, sofas, sober but recently renovated decor, and decent little bathrooms...
Hotel Green Star
This recently built low-energy hotel keeps environmental guilt at bay, with water heating rather than air-con blaring away and small communal areas to reduce heating...
The Spahotel Keurusselkä is a family holiday complex with a lake beach, swimming pools, Jacuzzi and activities...
Hotel Vanha Rauma
Once a warehouse in the old fish market, this is now the Old Town’s only hotel. Its 20 rooms embrace modern Scandinavian design with lino flooring, leatherette chairs, flatscreen TVs and views onto the park or courtyard...
Tradition Hotel Kultahovi Inari
Just off the main road towards Lemmenjoki, this cosy family-run place overlooks the rapids and has spruce rooms, some with a great river view...
