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...
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)...
Best Western Hotel Savonia
Not far from Puijo Hill, this offers easy access from the main road and decent value...
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...
Spa Hotel Kruunupuisto
Health and spa complex between Retretti and Punkaharju village. Excellent value for facilities on offer. Hires out bikes and boats.
Best Western Spahotel Casino
Charmingly situated on an island across a footbridge from the kauppatori, this is a good option. Nearly all rooms have a balcony; those that don’t, have their own sauna. In the ‘small’ rooms, the beds are arranged toe-to-toe...
Down from the busy part of the harbour, this unobtrusive but large hotel has an appealing, quiet lakeside location, professional service, and fine facilities that include a gym, sauna and jacuzzi, as well as a couple of bikes able to be borrowed by ...
Hotel Pension Kampus
Central, spotless 3rd-floor option with kitchen facilities in rooms. Breakfast included. Price drops a little at weekends.
Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna Mikkeli
Mikkeli’s most central hotel is just a block south of the kauppatori. It’s been designed more with the business traveller in mind, but it’s in a handy location and the rooms are attractive enough if a little short on space.
Summer Hotel Malakias
About 2km northwest of town, in a blocky complex of buildings among trees, this is another summer hotel with two-room apartments sharing a kitchen and bathroom. The décor would never be called charming, but the facilities are excellent!
This guesthouse, in Punkaharju village 2km south of the bus station, has simple but comfortable rooms; there’s a sauna and pool for an additional fee and you can also rent bikes, boats and snowmobiles...
Summer Hotel Villa Aria
By the water in a quiet but central part of town, this stylish wooden former hospital has spacious high-ceilinged rooms, and runs as a summer hotel...
Summer Hotel Tott
Run by the same people as the Seurahuone and not far from the kauppatori, this is another university residence that’ll have you envying the Finnish student. Spacious rooms feature couches, comfortable beds, minibar, and some have great views...
Summer Hotel Opera
Operating as a summer hotel, this student residence is across the bridge from the main part of town, about 1.5km east of the centre. Some of the clean, spacious rooms share a bathroom and kitchen, while others have their own facilities...
Ageing but comfortable, on the kauppatori. Popular €14 lunch buffet.
Family Hotel Hospitz
This cosy place near the castle is a Savonlinna classic, built in the 1930s and redolent of that period’s elegance, with striped wallpaper and ornate public areas...
A half-hour walk from the centre (pleasant if you cut across parkland), or a short trip on bus 18, this student accommodation offers light, no-frills rooms which are particularly good for families, in a campus with restaurant, shops and a bar...
Spa Hotel Rauhalahti
Though it feels a bit faded in parts, this still makes a great place to stay, largely because of the huge scope for activities here...
The striking modern façade of this large business hotel conceals a well-equipped interior, with large, light rooms that will satisfy rather than enchant. There's a small pool, saunas and use of a gymnasium as well as the expected facilities.
Right in the thick of things, this family-run hotel has an old-fashioned dark foyer, but the modern rooms offer plenty of natural light, space and attractive wooden floors; most have a balcony...
Original Sokos Hotel Alexandra Jyväskylä
One of two Sokos hotels in the centre of town, this is directly across from the train and bus stations and has two separate sections with excellent modern facilities and recently refurbished rooms...
Best Western Hotel Savonia
On the hills northwest of the town centre, this likeable and welcoming hotel has cheery rooms with bright Marimekko florals and very good facilities, including a pool and gym. There's a restaurant here, as well as a deli-café for lighter meals...
Within the university, and very handy for the Aalto museum, this hotel is right by the water, and the terrace of its restaurant and bar takes full advantage...
