I stayed at Sokos Hotel Valjus with my grandmother for two nights. While I was expecting an average room in an average hotel, I must say I was disappointed even with those expectations. While the staff was friendly, the rooms (as well as the hotel in general) really were quite terrible. First of all, it was very hot, which we received no warning of. However, this I think is understandable in a hotel as old as this one, especially when Finland normally doesn't have summers quite so hot. Even then, the room was what one might call the opposite of cozy, had poor air quality, an INCREDIBLY small shower cubicle, very uncomfortable pillows and comforters, and on top of all that it was also dirty (dirt stuck to your feet when walking barefoot, dirty bathroom cabinets etc.). The uncleanliness was the last straw for me, especially at a time like this (global pandemic). Breakfast was great, but unfortunately didn't make up for the uncomfortable stay (think of a boiling hot room with unpleasant bedding). This hotel definitely needs an upgrade, BADLY, and I think it looks bad in the general Sokos Hotel chain. For basically the same price you could stay at a brand new hotel in Turku, for example, which was a great deal more pleasant stay. Please do renovate this place from top to bottom. The location is great, and you could do so much better. As it stands right now, however, I wouldn't stay here another time.

This hotel gives a completely wrong impression of itself in the net. We thought we were coming to a classy place. Already in the reception we were warned of heat and lacking air conditioning. We had to walk to the room along endless corridores and even STAIRS! maybe 200 meters or so. The result? An ugly, hot street level room with fans yes but they’re circulating hot air. And this room smells MOLD!! >: ( I really didn’t understand that there still are places like this belonging to a famous hotel group! NEVER again to this town unless we can find a better place. Never again to Original Sokos Hotel Valjus >: (

I’m reviewing Valjus keeping in mind other Sokos-hotel stays. On it’s own I might give five stars, but you will expect excellent quality at S-group hotels. Nothing to complain. Parking at the front door.

Pretty standard stuff we’re talking ’bout here. Three-star chain standards expected, but I have to raise one point for Valjus. First of all, everything went as expected with reservation, parking, check-in etc. The location is as centre as possible, room was very clean, bed was comfy and no disturbance what so ever! There’s a decent local restaurant at ground floor serving hearty meals and breakfast. Price level was ok from my perspective, hence a happy customer all in all!

Standard room has very small shower. Room itself was quite spacious. Salmon toasts for dinner were very large and tasty. Breakfast was quite good. Hotel located very few minutes from the lake and very beautiful church
