Hotel Pajarinhovi is situated next to Kitee Zoo, by Lake Pyhäjärvi in Puhos. Its aqua centre has 3 giant water slides and Scandinavia’s biggest children’s swimming pool. The simple rooms at Pajarinhovi Hotel are housed in 5 detached timber frame buildings. All have a private bathroom with a shower and toilet. Wi-Fi internet access is free. The 130 m² children’s pool has 6 special kiddie slides. Other guests can enjoy their own 25-metre pool with water massage jets and hot tubs. A lakeside sauna is open during summer. Hotel staff speak Finnish, English and Russian and can help book canoeing trips, lake cruises and snowmobile safaris. The neighbouring Pajarinhovi Pavillion is a large entertainment centre offering music and dancing. The famously narrow Punkaharju Ridge is 45 minutes’ drive from Pajarinhovi, while the Russian border at Niirala is a 1-hour journey.
The place in the middle of the nature.
We liked the place - the lake, zoo, - the location is wonderful. If we knew, we would rather stayed in the cottage. The cottage is the same price, -110 eur, but it includes kitchen and sauna, instead of breakfast and tv in the hotel room. The cottage is not available from booking.com, but you can email them directly.
The breakfast seemed quite modest, comparing to the other hotels in Scandinavia.
The nature around hotel is wonderful , the cuisine of the restaurant is excellent, zoo is charming.
