Description

A vantage point to see the city and the world.

Solo Sokos Hotel Torni Tampere offers an all-new hotel experience. The hotel is located in the heart of Tampere next to the railway station. Opened in the autumn of 2014, the hotel pays homage to the eventful history and various legends of the city of Tampere. Reaching a height of 88 metres, the modern hotel tower combined with the old locomotive depots provide the best possible environment to experience the enticing story of Tampere and its phenomena, from local rock icons to sports heroes. The hotel's congress centre offers a unique setting for successful events and meetings.

The hotel's three restaurants and first-class breakfast provide delicious experiences for hotel guests and citizens of Tampere. Located at the top of the tower on the 25th floor, Moro Sky Bar, and particularly its roof terrace, have already become popular meeting places and spots to look out over Tampere and the world.
