The tallest hotel of Tampere is of course the “Tower”, officially Solo Sokos Hotel Torni Tampere. It’s actually the highest hotel in the whole country! The hotel is situated right next to Tampere railway station and it combines modern architecture with historical locomotive garages that have been turned into innovative meeting and party rooms. It’s all a celebration of local history and culture so even if you’re not staying overnight, pop in to Moro Sky Bar for a drink and a magnificent view over the city!
Original Sokos Hotel Ilves is an attractive landmark in the heart of the city. Ilves has 19 floors and it has been built in 1986. The first tower hotel of Tampere has been modernized to suit today’s requirements and it offers luxurious comfort and true Tampere experiences with warm-spirited service.
For more than a touch of high-class you should make your way to Radisson Blu Grand Hotel Tammer. This “Grand Hotel” has been in business since 1929 and overlooks the Tammerkoski rapids in the city centre. Tammer is all about history of Tampere and Finland, and the building holds many stories of important people and events. The distinguished environment with all its glorious details makes this hotel a unique place for a party as well. If staying overnight, try sleeping in Field Marshal Mannerheim’s former suite!
You can even get a feeling of Lapland in Tampere in the aptly named Lapland Hotel. It has a convenient location on the opposite side of Tampere Hall, only a ten minutes walking distance to the city centre. But the best part of the hotel is its cozy interior and the highly praised restaurant Dabbal that serves flavours of Lapland. Dabbal is worth visiting even if you aren’t staying at the hotel.
