Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I booked this hotel blind from the net for my mother, but I took the trouble to have a look before she arrived and I liked what I saw. Located amidst trees on a hill overlooking the centre of the town, I really liked the location - quiet and peaceful with a room with a terrace overlooking a garden with apple trees. A smal inside pool and common sauna were available. The staff were friendly and willing to accommodate in guests in small foibles like milk in the cold drinks cabinet where guests could make coffe for themselves out of hours.
My mother, coming from an English village, thoroughly enjoyed herself here, noting particularly that the peace and quiet was so restful and the service was excellent. She had a wonderful time and was sorry to have return home.

Greatly enjoyed my stay at Hotel Fjalar! It's tucked away back in a quiet neighborhood and has a beautiful feel to it. The rooms were very nice and clean and the breakfast each morning is quite delicious. My experiences with the staff were always warm and welcoming and they did all they could to accommodate any needs during the stay.

A cozy and very pretty small hotel in a residential area, within walking distance (aprox 1,5km) from town centre. Friendly service, nice, clean and quiet room, and calm atmosphere allaround. Excellent breakfast with abundant selection. Perfect for couples vacation, or for families that value serenity and beautiful surroundings over playrooms.

We had a pleasure to stay in Fjalar in superior room, which was perfect for our needs. (2adults+1child) Room was super cozy and modern and the we slept so well, beds 10+👌🏼!
We also used the sauna&pool. It was so relaxing and what a great sauna bath!
I prefer this instead if big Hotels as you feel like home. Well the staff is so welcoming that you are like part of the family.
And what a history hidden to this place!!
I highly recommend this place when booking a place to stay while in Salo.❤️

Stayed only for one night but could have imagine staying for a full week there. Service, breakfast and rooms 5/5. Free parking and a swimming pool with a possibility to have sauna. Located in quiet suburban area, but a walking distance to city center. Nice change for big hotel chains. This one has personality.

Family run establishment made us feel right at home. Hotel is comfortable with everything you would expect, but welcoming nature of staff is what made our stay so memorable. We came from South Africa to a sporting event in Salo, and they made us feel at home.
