Kaarle is a nice hotel in the centrum of Kokkola. There is friendly staff, the room was clean and breakfast was very good and hearty. There are two dining restaurants in the hotel. The food tasted good.

We are a family of 5 and stayed for one night, but have stayed at this hotel several times before. Basic service, no complaints except that coffee has always tasted bad. Staff is friendly and they have a little library with children's books you can borrow for a bed time story.

Hello. I am so sorry to hear that you felt so bad as our guest. Some guests unfortunately ignore that our hotel is a non smoking hotel and smoke cigarettes in the room. And the smell will be there for some days. Sorry to hear about the breakfast too. I will speak about it with our personnel. We usually get...

We visited the hotel as a conference guests. The pre-bookings and other organising before the event was very well handled. Also the reception desk was very helpful and knew all the answers to our questions. Our room was on the 2nd floor. The room is tidy, but the bathroom & shower are separate and a bit worn out. For example...

Had a late flight and took a shuttle bus from Airport to City Centre, where this Hotel is(right next to Market Place). There ain't too much competition in Kokkola, so high season price is not that cheap. Little renovation going on downstairs, on a way to their Restaurant/Breakfast Room. Room was clean, but real basic. Bed wasn't comfiest I've slept,...

This was hotel was OK but nothing more. The rooms were basic, the breakfast extremely basic, the coffee terrible, it was OK overall. The one pleasant surprise was the adjoining bar and restaurant which were both much better than expected. I had expected to have to wander the streets for dinner, but while driving into town I realised there wasn't...

Very nice room with own sauna. Best hotelsauna ever! Clean room and very good bed. Only little negative thing was quite cold floor on toilet,especially at the morning. Breakfast was very good and not too crowdy.

Stayed here overnight during a business trip in January 2017. Pleasant, clean, nice people at the reception. The rooms are on the small side, but everything you need is there. Free parking outside, and the breakfast buffé is generous and tasty.

We stayed for one night in the Presidental suite of Kaarle and it was excellent. Hotel locates next to marketsquare of Kokkola so you can enjoy downtowns opportunities with ease. Presidental suite is most suitable for couples.
