HOTEL KUUSAMO – A HOLIDAY OASIS BY THE ARCTIC CIRCLE
This was how the Original Sokos Hotel Kuusamo advertised itself over 40 years ago. The design for Hotel Kuusamo aimed to embody both its exact location and Kuusamo as a whole. According to legend, Lake Toranki (on whose shores the hotel is located) got its name from forest Sami people who had lived there in Lappish huts in ancient times. The façade is therefore dominated by a large hut that houses the hotel restaurant, Hotku. Local red-hearted pine has been used in the hotel's interior, and the dance floor in the hotel restaurant is made of Lapland marble. The stone used in the hotel's exterior walls comes from a Kuusamo whetstone quarry in Laajusvaara, close to the Russian border.
The warm-hearted and friendly Original Sokos Hotel Kuusamo has been built on Kuusamo traditions.
Just for you.

Location and transportation
Participated in a seminary during a weekend. I this place in the very relaxing and nice Kuusamo was a perfect choice. The hotel is easy to find, close to the main street to central city. It is big so space for even bigger events possible to arrange. The rooms are extremely clean and well equipped, still in the room I did stay in unfortunately had not a very nice view outside. Seemed to be in a direction more to the backyard. Because the building itself is only few floors high, there is quite long corridors to walk, of course depending how close to the reception desk it is located.
The breakfast is a normal Finnish hotel breakfast, which is good and full of choices for everyone. We had lunch also during the two days stay and could say it tasted as good homemade food with a large salad buffet. I liked the hotel so can warmly recommend it for you as well.
Stayed here for 4 nights as part of a small group doing wildlife photography in the region. Rooms are quite basically furnished, but they are clean, comfortable and have multi channel TV and free, fast wifi and, importantly, hot and plentiful en-suite showers. Breakfast buffet and evening meals were wholesome, tasty and also plentiful. The staff are welcoming and helpful and the reception staff especially attentive. For what we were doing this was an ideal place to stay.
