The Hotel where it all started …

When we opened our very first hotel in 2008, environmental issues and climate change weren’t such hot topics yet. Therefore, our GreenStar Hotel Joensuu had the honour of being the first in many aspects: the first North Karelian hotel to obtain the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and the first hotel in Joensuu to provide charging points for electric cars. GreenStar Hotel Joensuu is also the first city hotel in the world participating in the UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB).

North Karelian hospitality and warmth, and the closeness of nature form the very heart of the GreenStar Hotel chain. And naturally the feeling is vividly present in Joensuu, the capital city of North Karelia.

One of the specialities of GreenStar Hotel Joensuu is our partner restaurant Breakfast & Lunch, serving a fresh breakfast daily consisting mainly of organic and locally produced ingredients.
