Beautiful building, great staff GLUTEN FREE!!
This is a beautiful old building, with a lovely dining room where you eat breakfast. The staff are extremely friendly and the rooms are comfortable, with good facilities (tea making, iron/ironing board, chairs, desk, air con, good shower). Of interest to those who have to eat gluten free, or like me, just wheat free, there is a small selection of gluten free items on the buffet - a selection of breads, crackers, cookies and cereal. I found Finland in general to be good on the gluten free front - you can buy products in the supermarkets and in a lot of restaurants. The market in Tampere has a stall selling gluten free baked goods too. The funfair cafe has the best gluten free pizza ever!! The hotel has a comfotable space where you can have a drink and/or read a book. The location is good, close to the river. Tampere is easy to negoitate on foot anyway and we walked everywhere.
