Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Katrina2 Getting to Holiday Inn Tampere
Overall, the Holiday Inn Tampere was a comfortable and clean place to stay while on a business trip. The only problem I encountered was getting information on how to get to and from the airport from the hotel.
I emailed the hotel prior to arrival and was told I could take a bus from the airport to the Tampere City Center. I looked at the airport bus website but it was unclear from the small photo on the site where the bus would stop in relation to the hotel (to someone unfamiliar with Tampere). The hotel is about 1.5km away from the bus stop (so it's quite a walk with a suitcase.)
To return to the airport from the hotel, I was told that a taxi to the bus stop would cost about 10 Euro. However, the taxi for that one mile trip turned out to be 20 Euro so all in all, it wouldn't have been that much more to simply take the taxi all the way to the airport.
Here is how you can get from airport to hotel and back:
Airport to hotel by taxi: 40 Euro;
Airport to hotel by bus: 4.70 Euro (bus stop is 1.5km away from hotel);
Hotel to bus stop by taxi: Appx 20 Euro

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nordic_explorer Excellent front desk staff
Front desk staff are professional, capable and very good at their jobs. I had a relaxing and restful stay and was able to park my car securely and easily. WiFi access was good and hotel staff provided excellent bar and meal service. Breakfast was excellent and staff in restaurant were attentive and efficient. I have stayed in many hotels and I feel that this is a friendly and restful hotel were I always feel like their only customer. Such is the front desk staff attentiveness to my stay and any questions I have. I have not stayed in a better hotel for a long time and will be adding more stays at this hotel this year, even if I have to come to town for a holiday and not work. Well worth staying here if you are after a rest in a nice town which is a short walk from hotel. Cant say enough good things about this hotel. It is great!
