In city called Hyvinkää, which is situated about sixty kilometers from Helsinki, is opening a newly renovated hotel, Sveitsi. The hotel is named after the area it is located in, which is the Finnish translation from Switzerland. We decide to go “test sleep” it and went to one of Finnish Switzerland’s.
The actual idea for the visit came after we saw a good deal in https://offerilla.com/tuote/spahotel-sveitsi/. Renovation of the hotel is not fully done yet, so it explains the cheaper price. But it wasn’t a bad experience at all.
So what we discovered about Sveitsi:
The Hotel is situated in the outskirts of Hyvinkää. It’s a good place for those who enjoy different types of outdoor activities. Straight from the main doors you can see the first nature path, which leads you on a four kilometer esker trail. Along this path is also numerous other trails that you can follow, see the map for more info.
This hotel is perfectly suited for families with children as there is a cinema, indoor activity park and a rope park located right next to it. Also in the vicinity there is a ski center for downhill and cross country skiing
At first it seemed that the hotel had its own pool, at least it’s what you imagine when thinking of Finnish Spa hotels but In reality it was a public pool, which was connected to the hotel by a corridor. There also is a big outdoor pool, which is open during summer time. If you attentively look hotel info you will understand it. Connected with the pool area was also gym and fitness facilities that seemed to have all the equipment that you would need.
Let’s get back to hotel itself.
We stayed in standard double room. As the hotel has been renovated the room was in excellent condition. Room had enough space for 2 people and it had kettle with complimentary tea and a minibar/fridge. What we found very handy was the wall-mounted USB charger ports. But what we didn’t understand is that why they haven’t equipped the bathroom with “the best Finnish innovation” – the small toilet shower.
The breakfast was very good and had a lot of choices from cold foods to warm eg. porridge, muesli, different type of eggs, cheeses and meats.
We also had dinner in Tila restaurant. Price range was normal for a Finnish restaurant and the quality was good. Atmosphere in there was good and the music was at least to Tom’s liking 🙂
Overall our stay was satisfactory with quality service and generality of our weekend in Hotel Sveitsi. But we’d still let them finish the renovation before considering it as a full holiday weekend, as parts of the hotel are still not in use (for eg. their own gym and spa). The actual opening of the hotel will be 27 – 28.10.
