Superb service, nice and cozy rooms. Everything works as it should, and maybe little more. Hotel is at the centre, and everything is near. Very nice city! We got room with balcony to the street and it was a little suprise. At warm weather it was nice to watch city from the balcony.

Quite recently renovated: clean with pristine floor,walls etc. And for once a proper ceiling light. You actually see in the room! Smart tv. Watered down disappointing breakfast coffee and juices. Too cheap for even a basic level SOKOS-hotel. On the plus side local produce available. Very good traditional Carelian pies. Good location.

This was my second time within a year at the Vaakuna Joensuu hotel. The hotel is centrally located, the staff is wonderful and you will find all the basic services in the hotel. Wifi is easy, showers and toilet clean, beds comfy enough. The hotel is also very quiet. Breakfast is also very nice. The main question: Would I stay in this hotel? Absolutely.
