    What’s it like these days?
    The online reviews available are a bit all over the place and there doesn’t seem much on here (last mention was back in 2007)
    Cheers

    Finland hasn't changed much. Still cold in winter. Lots of lakes and pine trees. Moose and reindeer.

    You may do better if you look for Kareela.

    Same as it’s always been, maybe a bit more rundown, but a relaxed vibe...

    Was a case of there or nothing, hopefully armed with low expectations we will still have a good time (it’s only a bed after all) Should we plan on dinner elsewhere?

    Dinner elsewhere unless you’re after quantity over quality... however, everyoone deserves to be exposed to a pseudo-Austrian Karelian meal at least once... a legendary talking point amongst Falls regulars, not exactly the restaurant version of Fawlty Towers, but analogous.

    They’ve got a pool table....
