We stayed here for 12 days. We had a code to enter the building, our floor and our room. Room was clean and compact. Windows didn't open so no way to get fresh air. 2 covered beds/sofas with instructions to convert in to a chair but these were beds and would not convert. Our double bed was 2 singles pushed together, The Hotel is keen on being sustainable, provides a kettle, small fridge and microwave. A few cardboard cups and wooden spoons. A few teabags, sachets of coffee and sugar but no milk. We knew the room would only be cleaned every 5 days, spare bedding and towels were left on the windowsill. The day I changed the sheets the staff came and changed it again and then again the next day. Position was fantastic as we were in the town and places of interest were no more than 10-15 mins away. Considering its position it was really quiet at night. In my opinion, it would have been more sustainable to provide crock cups/mugs and glasses. We went out and bought 2 mugs, plus some cutlery so we could use the microwave and eat. We regularly lost TV signal and WiFi was intermittent. The recycling system was quite complicated and it wasn't obvious which materials could be recycled. The main box in the entrance had 4 smaller boxes which were always full so recycling was stacked at the side. The cleaners were in the block every day but the stairways were not always cleaned. Empty vodka bottles, beer cans and even a dropped kebab spread over 3 levels . We then wondered if the hotel do not clean the lower stairs as that is not part of the hotel. All these small annoyances were overcome by its position.…
I stopped for only one night after coming from Helsinki. There is no reception, you will just get a password to enter, the day before check in; very easy. Rooms are ok, with all you need; cleaning is average but sufficient. There is no window to open , and password only to enter your room, no key. Also you can add late check out or early check in if you need ,paying online. The premises is located in the main avenue of Tampere town, easy walking everywhere, few minutes from main train station, 18 / 20 minutes by taxi from Tampere Airport which might cost around 40 €. If you need breakfast or coffee you can just cross the road and find main coffee chains or any shop.
I quite often visit Omenahotelli, but this stay was not the best, because of the location. Lots of sketchy looking people were hanging near the street on the main door, so had to use the other door for leaving and entering the hotel. Otherwise no proplems.
Room is really compact, for family, it is very small. Just enough for a very short stay. No possibility to open windows or adjust room temperature, may get claustrophobic. Get the room codes beforehand, as there is no reception.
