Everything was nice and clean. Lots of customers but still not crowded. Enjoyable breakfast. Quiet rooms.. Very good for the price. Easy to arrive with Your own car. Conviently located. Spa area wooden floors are a bit slippery when wet, so better use shoes or socks

My recent 4 night stay in Valo exceeded my expectations ! Regardless of the current local Covid restrictions, the amenities (eg roof top Spa), were made available for fullest possible enjoyment. All the staff I dealt with made me feel at home (Sini and Mikael at the front desk and Julia in reservations and I forgot a few names ... Sorry !) Nothing was too much to ask and all my requests were accommodated (within a reason). Strong Wi-fi signal throughout the property. Calm and bright lobby has some great spots to "make a nest" and concentrate (they have plenty of other work space options avail too - just inquire). The clean room is compact but Very Well thought out. More than enough outlets for all your must haves ! Valo is not in the Center City but transportation, public and private alike, takes one there in just a few minutes (HEL airport is 17mins away). Valo is already a destination by itself (Spa). Buffet Breakfast was ample with plenty of healthy options and the area is kept spotless. The restaurant menu is short but one can find from it just the Right thing to eat (I had an Excellent Burger) . 7 star Value, 3 star price - You can't go wrong when choosing the Light = VALO in finnish. I will be back !

Good hotel to sleep and work. Quiets rooms and big TV in hotel rooms. Easy to gome hotel via public Transporter. Breakfast was decent and no hurry to eat ewen when breakfast time IS gone... Then not The hotel "business", but If you hawe some problems whit cops/and other similar "institutions" then The hotel believe police 100% Even that you dont hawe any criminal records. Living in 4-years now some "terrorist" accusions because someone talk something and tax-payer pays all those police actions and harasment. In my opinion, that IS stupid and peoples hawe to right to know how The things are for real, and not how The cops/police say they are. If you are same situation than me, then this hotel IS like others hotels whos believe cops/police 100-0 😢. This country has way too high trust in justice departments and all that kinda "accosiers".

We had a very nice stay in this hotel! Our room was great, excellent for working also. Sauna, pool area and the gym had a great view and they were super clean. We had a lovely dinner in the restaurant downstairs, food was very good and the staff was helpful and recommended great choices. Breakfast was also excellent and they had plenty of options to choose from. Staff at the breakfast, reception and all around were very helpful, kind and courteous. Parking garage was very spacious and easy to drive in and out. We had a great stay!

We stayed here for one night in September, sometime after the hotel had first opened. Everything was brand new, from the lobby to the hallways, all the way to the rooms themselves. We first had a room with a view to the street. Everything seemed to be in order, but as I laid down to the bed, I saw that the contractor for the hotel had not bothered to install ventilation covers, and small wood particles from the ventilation area flowed freely to the room. We were offered a different room. This room also had no ventilation covers, but the amount of wood particles was lower, so we choose to stay there. Other than this, the rooms were in great condition, with comfy bed and enough space to get around. We also tried out the Wellness area, which is located at the top floor. It was a pleasant surprise and we stayed for few hours. In the morning we had the breakfast, which was good and sufficient for the day ahead. With fixed ventilation covers, this would have been a great stay, so by the time you read this, all could be well. In September, though, just an OK stay.

Hi JoonasHM! Thank you for your review. On behalf of the whole Valo team, I would like to extend my apologies to you, for that is not what you would hope to experience during your hotel stay. I'm glad you still managed to find good in our rooms and enjoyed the wellness-area as well as the filling breakfast. A lot has changed since the opening days, and I would like to invite you to visit and to be amazed by the enhanced Valo Hotel & Work again in the near future. The ventilation covers as well as the air-conditioning are no longer an issue and are working wonders now. I wish you all the best during the holiday season and a Happy New Year! With Warm Regards, Roope / Reception Valo Hotel & Work
