Mediocre hotel with the buffet from hell ! Apr 10, 2010
Hotel Kieppi was part of our package deal with the organised trip. The hotel itself is quite reasonable for it's price. The rooms are okay, the bathroom is a bit cramped though. The receptionists were friendly and very helpful. Only major complaint about the hotel would be that one day we didn't receive any clean towels and another day no replenishment of complimentary coffee and tea in the room. The hotel has an Internet corner, which was out of order for part of the week. They do have a free WIFI network though, but it's not advertised anywhere. Still, nothing extremely positive or negative here.

Now, about the restaurant, that's a whole different story. We'd booked full board at Kieppi and I can tell you that in all my years of travelling I haven't had food this terrible anywhere in the world. The breakfast buffet is okay, a bit limited in choice perhaps but since it's included in the standard room price it's reasonable. Now lunch and dinner ... that´s where the real disaster starts. Seemingly the restaurant is currently owned by other people than the hotel and it clearly shows. They are much more interested in people ordering from the menu than those having full board arrangements at the hotel. The menu and food in the ´a la carte´ restaurant looked nice and the tables are nicely set with folded napkins, plates, glasses, the works ... But if you are one of the full board guests you get the ultra cheap treatment. No set tables. Pick up your stuff at the buffet yourself. And the buffet itself is utterly dreadful. The same dull DIY salad three times a day, seven days a week. And basically just one main course to choice from. If you don´t like it, or can´t eat is because of one of the ingredients ... tough luck ! And if you´re not allergic to the food you might as well decide not to take it since it looks far from tasty. The soup looks like a cheap rush job and the fruit dessert comes straight from a can. If you decide to have bread instead there´s no fillings during lunch, so you end up eating dry bread with butter. This is without a doubt the worst buffet I have EVER seen. It clearly shows a total lack of pride and willingness of the owners and staff to present good food to ALL guests.

To sum it up, compare prices of hotels in Saariselkä. If the Kieppi looks reasonably cheap you might want to try it. But whatever you do, please do NOT book full board here.
