Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel
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 or a run by the river or enjoy dinner made by our masters of the kitchen and at the end of the day fall asleep in the arms of our comfy beds!
Finely done in the hands of people from North Karelia
Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel has gotten a new spark. We opened the walls towards nature. We brought strong colours and earthy materials to the rooms. We built new suites with their own balconies, a massive ballroom, a proper sauna department, new Bistro Heili and a night club Las Palmas for the night lovers.
The renewed Kimmel was made together with local electricians, carpenters, beer brewers, Karelian pie bakers and craftsmen. Enjoy their works of art!
The star of events in Eastern Finland
Samba carnivals, entertaining concerts or gigs and parties. Former President Kekkonen eating pork chops, singer Danny in his wolf fur coat. Biathlon contestants, festival guests and fans of the rock'n'roll. Kimmel has always been the place for events and event guests. Now it's even better. We organise 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!
