The Hotel Rantasipi
Scandic Patria hotel
Rantasipi Imatran Valtionhotelli
With an exterior magical enough to inspire a Disney film, the Rantasipi Imatran Valtionhotelli in Imatra is the ultimate spa hotel. Just as impressive on the inside, the hotel offers a large range of spa activities and treatments, along with relaxing pools, Jacuzzis and saunas. The rooms are charming and cosy, and the surrounding town offers activities that range from exciting to relaxing, for you to experience at your leisure.

The winner of a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice award in 2015, Hotel Kämp is a seriously stylish and impressive place to stay. The hotel, which describes itself as ‘the most luxurious hotel in Helsinki’, offers spacious rooms and an impressive spa, along with a range of dining experiences and great surroundings. If this isn’t enough to convince you of the luxury and glamour of Hotel Kämp, then the fact that the hotel has accommodated royals and heads of state might just do the trick.

Hotel Haven offers another great option in Helsinki. Its 77 individual rooms make it compact and quiet, allowing you to escape the hustle and bustle of the surrounding city. Its glamour should not be underestimated, however. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the bar is stylish and the gym is well equipped. Hotel Haven’s central location and many services mean this is a hotel that will meet all of your holiday needs.
Hotel Haven, Unioninkatu 17, 00130 Helsinki, +358 (0)9 681930
Opened in 2010, Hotel Fabian is a stunning boutique hotel and the height of luxury and modernity. Its unique architecture has made the hotel world-famous and is one of the many reasons it is so highly recommended on websites such as TripAdvisor. The hotel’s central location is also an undeniable pull as it is only a short walk away from the Market Square, the beautiful gardens of the Esplanadi and the famous Museum of Finnish Architecture. We recommend picking a loft-style room for an extra-special stay.

Rated as one of the best hotels in Lappeenranta, the Scandic Patria hotel is perfectly located within walking distance of the city centre and Lake Saimaa. Nature lovers will appreciate the hotel’s beautiful natural surroundings and spa-goers are also well catered to, with facilities such as a sauna on site. We suggest hiring a bike to visit the museums and sights around the city and, if time permits, taking a day trip to Russia.
