The pictures from the website give feel of light and neatness. In reality there is less of both. The foreign colleague I booked to this hotel claimed there was mold in the bathroom. I was ashamed. It is a pity, because the hotel has potential, for example it is very well situated. They should call help from Gordon or Sukula!

Merikotka is situated in a beautiful, old building. Location is nice, next to the harbor but a short walk to the town center. Reception in the afternoon was in the downstairs pub and staff there was nice. A single room was... well, single room from the 90's. Bearable for one night, but nothing special to mention of. No wi-fi in...

As a budget option this cannot be beaten. I have stayed here several times. The room is fine with a decent en suite and TV channels. It's clean and comfortable. Breakfast is copious but not particularly varied as one would expect in this price range. I love the position of the hotel right on a harbour and have had great...

Hotel Merikotka is situated in a convenient place near the harbour. New naval museum Vellamo is only few hundred meter away (worth visiting). Also the center of the town is at walking distance. There was no problem to find parking place. Hotel is in the second floor of an old (1910) building, and reception is either there, or at the...

It looks nice from the outside but is a disappointment inside. Airless, musty, tiny room and even tinier bathroom. Beds were narrow but otherwise ok. Breakfast was very plain. It cost only a couple of euros more to stay in Seurahovi in Porvoo (see review) and difference of standard and quality was more like 50 euros.

I stayed here last summer. I didn't know it was listed. You won't find gastronomy or 5 star accommodation, but the rooms are clean, decent-sized, very clean and have everything you need. Breakfast is what you normally find in a Finnish hotel in this price range, different breads and ryvita, a selection or meats, cheeses, boiled eggs, jams, honey -...
