What is S-Card?
Joensuu is a vibrant and growing provincial centre in North Karelia, which provides tourists with various events, sights and experiences. During summer, the atmosphere of the city is coloured by the relaxed lifestyle of Karelian people, the varied services and the River Pielisjoki running through the city and the many different opportunities it provides. The hustle and bustle of the market square is also a nice addition to the city's atmosphere – this you must see for yourself.
- for any occasion
Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel is the leading conference, banquet and event location in eastern Finland. At Kimmel, you can organize small and large meetings, various trade fair events and unforgettable family feasts.

Our hotel is located in the beautiful Sirkkala-park by the River Pielisjoki. Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel is named after the fast-flowing River Pielisjoki and its glimmering foam.
