The star of events in Eastern Finland

You are warmly welcome to Joensuu and to the shore of river Pielisjoki! We offer you fully renovated spaces, hospitable service, delicious food and the buzz of the Karelian lifestyle, located near nature experiences. You can spot an otter couple dive into the river when having breakfast, take a walk by the river or enjoy dinner made by our masters of the kitchen.

We organize celebrations and parties for up to a 1000 people or serve coffee for a small group in one of our glass cube meeting rooms.

Lots of local. A bit of luxury. Taking care of you with a big heart. Welcome to enjoy the sparkle of the renewed Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel!
