We stayed here one night. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were nice. The breakfast was good, there are different option from bacon and sausages to fruits and cereals. Also gluten free options are available, at least bread and cereals (ask bread). I liked our stay, I would go back again.

Hotel is right in the city "center" and a basic business hotel. Rooms are although quite outdated and the room rates are compared to the value. Restaurant and breakfast are good, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Overall the hotel is clean and quiet.

Valjus is an average hotel in the middle of Kajaani. My room was clean and really small, but it was a single room anyway. In front of my window there was a huge concrete pillar suppressing my view outside. There were some stairs on the corridor, so not every room is accessible with wheel chair or baby prams, for example....

The staff was friendly and the hotel is good but it is a littele old, need renovation. But it works out well and the morning breakfest was OK. They have to offer a gym 300 m from hotel for 4€ and it was big and nice.

I give 2 stars for the room and 4 for the restaurant and service, so the mean is 3 stars. The room was really boring, simple, old, some furniture thrown in and can't really call it a decor. Small windows facing Kauppakatu, where cars and moped were speeding through the night and the sound proof was minimal. The price is...

Just spent a weekend in this hotel. The room was good, clean. The staff were friendly, everything was just fine. OK, the wifi is a bit on the slow side (but my iPad gets nearly 50 MB in the mobile network) so I didn't use it much. For once the shower cubicle worked as it should, the whole bathroom floor...
