Scandic Patria Lappeenranta Reviews
A REALLY nice hotel in a small city. Nov 27, 2010
It is located 3km away from the airport (LPP) and the day we arrived, we decided to save money on transportation and walked all the way to the hotel.
The service was good and very friendly staffs there. Any questions and they'll be able to answer and provide the information.
- Excellent service
- Every day make-up room
- Big bathroom
- Classy interior with a nice TV
- Heater without timer
- Toiletries provided (soap/shampoo and hand soap)
- Breakfast buffet included!
- The room and bathroom are clean
- Big room
- Free WiFi provided
- Free parking nearby
- Two single bed joined together to make a double sized bed. There's no double sized bed (Queen/King) at all in this hotel.
- No electric kettle (but that's OK)
- You got to pay to park in the hotel.
Big and spacious and has a heater that will switch off once the room has reached its optimal temperature. A nice comfortable couch to watch TV or read a book/papers. A new slick television screwed onto the wall (psst...it is LG). There's a big table with a mini bar (fridge) underneath. There's an old-movable closet with no doors but curtains instead. That was fine, didn't matter much to us. There's a balcony too but we didn't open it because it was cold and wet. A view of a residential building across the road and from afar the habour. There's a door that leads to the room next door, thus it is good for those big families staying there. The bed was a sad thing, they didn't have double sized bed (Queen/King) in this hotel, thus two single beds were joined together as one. Just to make sure that none of us would fall inbetween the gap, my guy came up with the idea of tying the bed legs together. You can do so too!
Looked old but it was spacious and clean. First time I'd come across a long bathroom sink top, whereby you could put many things on and a second shelf below. You could find a hairdryer there too. The shower area is slightly long but it is enough even if you're big. Shampoo/soap is provided. There's the hand soap dispenser too.
Wide spread from salad counter, warm side where there were Finnish rice cakes, meatballs, mini sausages, soft-boiled eggs and hard-boiled eggs, scrambled eggs and much more. There's oatmeal and cereals, different types of preserves and fruits. There was yoghurt and also different juices, milk and warm chocolate. Also tea and coffee. This is a breakfast to really enjoy and fill your tummy.
Friendly staffs, we requested for an umbrella and they lend it to us. We needed hot water and we just had to go to the restaurant to ask for one. They were gladly to lend us a flask of hot water (we needed it for cup noodles). Also, we needed to book a taxi to drive us to the airport on our last day. She was nice enough to call the taxi service centre and told us that, actually it would cost extra to book it earlier. Instead she suggested we could book it just before we leave because the taxi arrives fast. She was right, we did that on our last day. We were glad that we needn't have to miss out on breakfast and also to walk in the rain and cold to the airport. Taxi cost 13 euro from the hotel to the airport.
Even though the trip was cold, wet and kind of boring but the stay in the hotel AND renting a McDonald's advertising car were the saviour for this trip. It was a cosy and a true qualified hotel to stay in. Definitely worth the recommendation.
**Just an extra information, we booked it via Expedia and used a coupon that could be found on Google. It usually cost 143 Euro per night so with that coupon, we paid only US$264.60 (191 Euro at that time) for 3 nights.
