Hotel Jämsän Gasthaus

Flexible services

Hotel Jämsän Gasthaus is like a time travel to an old-time inn. The retro-inspired interior emphasizes the character of the old unique building.

The hotel has three floors and 28 rooms that can accommodate a total of 60 guests. The rooms are for 1-4 people.  Seven of the rooms are larger family apartments. The hotel is pet friendly.

You can choose whether you also want breakfast in connection with the hotel room. The price of breakfast is 9 euros / person, children under 10 years old for free. Breakfast is served on weekday mornings normally from 6 am to 9 pm, and on weekends from 9 am to 10 am. Any changes to breakfast times will be announced at reception.

Our kitchen also enables catering services for groups, families, or other groups by order.

There is always something going on in Jämsä

Jämsä is full of events all year round. In the winter, people are drawn to Himos with its ski slopes and weekend events, and in the summer the region is filled with festival guests. Located on the shores of Lake Päijänne in Central Finland, the city is also known for the magnificent and diverse nature of its region.

From the point of view of tourists, Jämsän Gasthaus is ideally located near the center of Jämsä, next to the train station. Downtown services are within walking distance.

The cross-country ski trail (Joenvarsi) starting from the center of Jämsä starts only 500 meters from the hotel, on the other side of the Jämsänjoki. You can ski all the way to Himos and further along the slope.

The first hotel in the area

Jämsä Gasthaus was built in 1952 for the extensive accommodation needs of Finland's first Olympic Games. During the Helsinki Olympics, the hotel also accommodated Olympic athletes, as the hotel was located along the route of the Olympic flame.

At least a gas station and a small bakery have once operated in connection with the hotel. Inn and hotel operations have been running continuously since 1955.
