Sorry to be negative but this I´d like to share. Cumulus Pinja welcomes you with a strange smell in the room. Like there was a person that hash´t washed himself in ages. The room was very small. Hotel garage is very small and I even got a scratch in my car during the stay. Not too much to brag about.

On the other hand the restaurant offered very tasty meals.

Well anyway I would´t recommend this hotel to a person I care about. Sorry.

Hotel was really central which is always a big plus, but thankfully the city centre is pretty compact anyway so there was probably not much in it between this hotel and the next in town. The lobby and the communal areas were homely, eighties inspired sauna chic (they describe this as "art nouveau" in the brochure). Rooms themselves were compact, but had all the services you would expect nice decor and nice wooden flooring (with underfloor heating). In terms of a hotel there was nothing to detract - generally it was a tidy place that makes a good stop for a few nights out. Unfortunately there were a couple of minor points that didn't bother me, but might get on a few nerves - - the heating seemed to be connected to the outside temperature meaning the indoor temperature remained at least 50 degrees C warmer than outside, not bad when it' was -25, but when it got to -1 you began to feel like a basting turkey, a real sauna experience! The beds weren't made during our stay, not a biggie on a three nighter, but if you're there longer it might get a bit messy.

All in all, the place was good, Tampere was a good weekend away, definitely somewhere to recommend if you're a bit relaxed and not expecting uber 5* luxury

I stayed at the Cumulus Pinja in May 2007. On the hotel's website, they stated that the hotel had been renovated during 2006. I thought this meant that both rooms AND bathrooms had been fixed up.

The room I stayed in (very near the elevator, which was somewhat disturbing) was clean and neat, but the bathroom was "left in the 80's". The bathroom was ok; it was clean but could use some fixing up.

One thing I found very strange was that one could use a computer in the lobby for free, but if one wants to have access to the internet at one's room, then one have to pay.

I can recommend the Cumulus Pinja to travellers that do not expect too much, the best word to describe the hotel would be 'average'.

Worst hotel I have ever been in. There was (yes, really!) some human waste marks in toilet walls. Rude receptionist claimed that the room is clean and refused to do anything else. I went to another hotel.

Huoneen vessan seinissä ihmispaskatahroja. Respa kieltäytyy huoneen vaihtamisesta tai siivouksen järjestämisestä. Ei koskaaan mihinkään Cumulukseen.

The Cumulus Pinja is not a five-star hotel, but I'm giving it a perfect score because it had everything I needed and after a five night stay there, it almost felt like home to me.
If you're ever in Tampere, this is a great place to stay. The hotel is just a couple of blocks from the main street of Tampere. It's not fancy, but it's comfortable, affordable (for Scandinavia), and very clean. My room was so clean that when I spilled some water on the floor and wiped it up with a white towel, there was not a speck of dirt on the towel. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The staff are laid-back and helpful, and they speak English (like pretty much everyone else I met in Finland). You can use the internet on the computer in the lobby for free anytime of the day or night. For some reason they never charged me for a ten-minute phone call I made to the US. I'm sure this was a fluke, but it just enhanced my overall satisfaction with this hotel!
I loved the all-you-can-eat breakfast that was included in the price of the room. Like the rest of the hotel, the breakfast wasn't fancy, but it was very satisfying. There was porridge, eggs, meat (anything from bacon to meatballs to blood sausage), fruit, salad, bread, cheese, cereal, and more.
The wake-up call system is kind of weird. There is no alarm clock. You set an alarm through the TV in your room, and at the chosen time the TV comes on and you're startled out of a sound sleep by loud Finnish talking coming out of the TV. The alarm set-up program is entirely in Finnish, and therefore pretty much impossible for foreigners to understand. Somehow I figured it out and was able to set it myself, but if you call and ask the front desk for a wakeup call, they'll magically program the TV for you from the lobby.
Not planning to visit Tampere anytime soon? Too bad for you. I'm hoping I get to go back someday.

Right, so this hotel isn't for everyone. You step back in time to the 1920's but I loved it. Modern necessities worked great, fast internet, good breakfast, comfortable bed. The shower was powerful, but it did not hold a steady temperature. It was good value as well and service was really friendly. If you don't mind the old decor, it's a great hotel. I knocked off one point for the inconsistent shower temperature.

We stayed two nights in December 2012 during our leisure trip to Tampere.

The hotel is located in an old rambling house. The hotel is advertised to be Art Nouveau style. Maybe, maybe. Some furniture are maybe ArtNouveau style, but in any case the advertising is overkilling.

Again, you can see the Hotel operator, the Restel-group, using their strategy to delay refurbishment: "Let the hotel create earnings as long it does."

The room we stayed was bit old, and it was easy to feel that it had a bright future in the past. The breakfast was typical Cumulus breakfast, with a local speciality - black sausage. In addition we have to stay that the cheeses were cut already on earlier night, like tomatos. They were dry. Like the rolls. Not prepared in the morning.

We would not had booked this hotel with their list price, it is that expensive. But we had a special price and decided to use it. Next time we will use some other hotel in Tampere, like Cumulus Rautatientori, which was opened last summer.

The staff saved what could be saved. They were really friendly and allowed us to use the sauna shortly after the official sauna hours. Very kind !

I decided to change the hotel in my annual visit to Tampere to see my father's cousins. I have stayed this far in Scandic by the railway station but decided to check something new. Cumulus Hotel Pinja is also a chain hotel, an average three star house yoiu can find everywhere in Finland.

I stayed in a superior room that is in the annex, not in the old part of the building. The room was spacious but missed any charm you would expect from a hotel with a art deco past. The lobby is small and lacks also the art deco atmosphare.

The location is good, the service friendly and the breakfast ok.

But as put in the title, somehow very, very boring. It could be anywhere, it could have been built anytime, and it could be a member of any Finnish hotel chain. Bity!

By the way, the telephone rates are extremly high. It is 80 cents a unit. I had left my mobile home, and tried to reach my wife. I dialed here mobile number at the room phone, but couldn't reach her: The number was not in use. When I finally got a normal signal, it went to another phone. Then I had to contact the directory enquiries, first to check the number, and finally to connect to my wife's mobile. The first call to the directory enquieries lasted 54 seconds, and cost 28 euros!!! A bit unreasonable and unjust. I had a friendly talk with the hotel manager this morning, but with no special results.

I had my birthday in Pinja´s Olympiahall and me as well as my invited guests were over all satisfied to the place as well it´s food. But even though we had a suite to stay overnight, it was not so good. An old house, yes, but still you have to keep the maintenance level better. Mold in the shower room is not a thing to ignore.

Half of Pinja is a art deco jewel and the other half just an ordinary, quite boring hotel. I stayed in the boring half. Everything went well but nothing special. Breakfast was ok, service was ok. The room was very peaceful which is of course the main thing for a nice overnight.
