Lonely Planet review

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 spa complex is good (available to non-guests for €12), and the rooms are spacious, with low beds and decent in-room facilities. In the same complex is the cheaper Hostelli Rauhalahti , with simple Nordic rooms and full use of the hotel’s facilities, as well as Apartment Hotel Rauhalahti which has excellent modern pads with all the trimmings, including (for not much extra dough) a sauna. There are some excellent family packages offered on their website. It’s 5km south of town; take bus 7, or it’s €20 in a cab.

Our independent authors have visited Spa Hotel Rauhalahti and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Kuopio.
