The renovations of hotel Kimmel are almost finished
The renovations of Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel have progressed quickly. Our first 130 new standard rooms exuding the modern-day Karelian luxury are finished on the 30th of July 2021.
Suites with a view and Superior rooms
Our new superior room and suites offering everyday luxury with strong colours and earthy materials are finished in September.
Bistro Heili is a relaxed meeting place
Our new Bistro Heili replacing restaurant Fransmanni offers good food with a mastery touch. The new restaurant opens in September. The new bright restaurant is a good place to enjoy a drink or dinner. The menu consists of delicious but easy bistro food with a seasonally changing menu including local flavours.
Number one event venue in Eastern Finland
There will be a total of 13 new meeting and event spaces in Kimmel. The smallest ones are sympathetic glass cubes located right next to Bistro Heili. The old suite is transformed into a more relaxed creative meeting space with a sauna.
The actual meeting wing has eight meeting spaces which can be divided into smaller spaces or into a one big space for up to 600 people. The main event and occasion space is the stylish Sirkkala hall with river views. Kimmel can fit up to a 1000 people when combining all the new spaces.
Your event can last until the early hours in our night club Las Palmas offering a relaxed atmosphere.
"New Kimmel is stunning and stylish North Karelian event house with versatile services. We warmly welcome people from Joensuu and the neighbouring areas to come and eat in our new restaurant, to have a meeting or to spend a staycation weekend", General Manager Kaija-Riitta Uusitalo recommends.
