How does check-in at the automated hotel work?

All rooms have keyless entry through a smart lock. We will provide check-in instructions, access code, and room number on the check-in day.
You can watch the introduction video of Vanha Postitalo here, which also shows how check-in works.

What should I do if the door code or smart lock doesn’t work?

The most common reason for the door not opening is not pressing the # key after entering the code or not turning the door handle/knob to unlock.

Try again. Make sure you are at the correct door. If you are at the main entrance, try another entrance. There are three different entrances at the Postitalo. In case of problems, contact customer service via the website chat or by calling +358 41 7305 349.
