Inconvenient that you had to bring your own cooking utensils, they take away a lot of space in your luggage. Most other youth hostel provide cooking utensils.

Positiv: 1) Freundliches Personal: eine Mitarbeiterin des Best-Western Spa-Hotel Casino ist abgestellt während der Festspielzeit des Savonlinna Opera Festival (Juli-August) 2) Die Buchung war bekannt und korrekt. 3) Küche+Kühlschrank in der kleinen Wohnung sehr gut, aber kein Wasserkocher, Geschirr und Besteck. Wir bekamen aber alles geliehen, was wir brauchten. 4) Sehr sauber, allerdings findet man die Hausmülltonne nicht. 5) Sehr sorgfältig ausgeführte Renovierung der Zimmer und Appartments

Une cuisine mais avec rien dedans: aucun intérêt. Un micro onde et une bouilloire électrique seraient utiles pour se faire un thé ou réchauffer une soupe.

Beware! The stay itself was comfortable but ruined when we checked out and they tried to charge us double the price. We have since gone back to the website and checked the prices and we were correct and they were wrong in trying to charge so much. So, nice hostel but make sure you have proof of the price with you to avoid any upset or unpleasantness.
