Family Hotel (Perhehotelli) Hospitz
One of the closest to the Castle
Pick this one, if you don't want to spend your time with walking to Opera or the Market square, this is just between, only some hundreds of meters from both. The rooms are small but lovely (all the rooms are different, so there are bigger ones also), there is a sauna (if you are lucky you can meet some opera star there, I met once a Big Finnish Bass :)
All rooms have TV, free wireless net, shower, toilet and hair dryer.
If you can afford take a room with balcony (145€ off peak). Check the prices from their web pages (of peak 88-145, during summer and Opera time more). Extra bed and pets are charged according to price list and there're pet friendly rooms also.
Peak time (from 5th Jul to 3rd Aug) prices on the 2013 season 130€ - 215€ and off peak as said earlier.
(Closed from 22.12.12 -> 2.5.2013)
By the way, the hotel is designed by architect Wiivi Lön, very famous here in Tampere, she designed for example our main fire station (and lot of others around Finland and Tampere). This hotel was build to NNKY (YWCA) year 1930.
Unique Quality: During opera time the dinner is served 3,5 hours before opera time and there is light night bufee after. Opera time varies, but it's normally 19:00-22:15 (7:00PM to 10:15PM).
Only cons is that there is four floors but no elevator.
There used to be possibility to have breakfast in the boat, but that seems to be history now, what a pity, but there are terace and garden restaurant during summer time.
Family run hotel with excellent location
Ah, once again I did not stay in this hotel but as I spotted it right next to a smallish beach, Olavinlinna Castle and within a walking distance of the city center... I thought that this would be my choice if I'd need one!
Unique Quality: This family run hotel is perfectly located next to a nice smallish beach, just 50 metres to the shore! It is in between Olavinlinna Castle and Central Market place. They have only 21 rooms, a summer terrace where beer, cider and other drinks are served. The house itself is a beautiful typical Finnish wooden house.
Check out their webpages as all the info is there...ah, by the way, the room prices varies, during the Opera Festival price are higher. A double room from 75 euros to 145 euros.
