Lonely Planet review
Though it feels faded in parts, this spa hotel 6km south of town still makes a great place to stay, largely because of the huge scope for activities. The pool complex is good (available to nonguests for €12.50), and the modernised rooms are spacious and attractive. Excellent family packages are offered on its website. Take bus 7/9, or it’s €25 in a cab.
In the same complex is Hostelli Rauhalahti , with simple Nordic rooms sharing kitchens and with full use of the hotel’s facilities, plus Apartment Hotel Rauhalahti which has excellent modern pads with all the trimmings, including (for very little extra) a sauna.
Our independent authors have visited Spa Hotel Rauhalahti and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Kuopio.
