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... More

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...

The atmosphere of this hotel was pleasant and the staff attentive. The lobby and the room was ok, but the corridors to the rooms gave the atmosphere of the prison. It was really nice that the hotel room had a mini-bar / fridge. There were not any electric kettle in the room, so there wasn't possible to make tee during... More

Usually Sokos hotels offer value for money. Valjus has a good location, decent restaurant downstairs and fairly clean rooms. So basics are in order but big big minus for overpriced room (standard room 128 €) with very old fashioned style and towels with holes in them. Also breakfast was a disappointment: very little to choose from and almost everything -... More
