Original Sokos Hotel Valjus
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Kajaani
Reviewed February 15, 2013

About one year after first visit to this hotel, I found it better this time. This time rooms were better and also restaurant was serving as normal.

Good thing about this hotel, is it's location, in center of this small town.
Poor thing was the street noise.

Room Tip: Rooms by the main street are noisy

All average hotel. In july or august rooms might be a bit hot - no AC... Town center location so most likely you will hear city noise from the streets (evenless we had a room opposite side to the nearby street and top floor). Good food found in hotel restaurant, seems to be a popular lunch restaurant among the locals also.

Room was 4 th floor an was like a sauna. Only a table fan try to help cooling down. Room was ok, bathroom was out of date.
Hotel is in the main street, but was not noisy even by open window all night long.

The hotel is located in the middle of the small city centre of Kajaani.
The staff was friendly and helpful and delivered the service required.
My room (superior) was quite ok in size and had a decent bathroom.
But.. 5 light bulbs in my room was out and the room was "tired" in appearance.
The hallway/stair smelled a bitt sewer.
Ok. restarurant that offered pub-like food. Ok. breakfast.
Would I stay there again - yes after refurbishment.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room

Usually S-hotels in Finland are good value for money, but this on I can not recommend. Worn out rooms, rooms are scattwred aroun in several buildings, breakfast is good in theory only (good ingredients, but even scrabled eggs were overcooked). The only good thing is the location in the centre of the town.

Having spent multiple nights in Scandic Kajanus, Sokos Seurahuone and Sokos Valjus, I have to say that this hotel (Valjus) is the place I'd least recommend to anyone.

Dark (which makes it feel dirty) and labyrinth-like. Hard to find your room, since its so far from the reception. Loud drunken people walking back-forth on corridors looking for the sauna/smoking place/their rooms.

The only plus in this hotel is that it serves breakfast at the Torrero restaurant (otherwise not a recommended spot either).

Room Tip: If you can, ask for a room far away from the sauna. 1) you might just find the room, 2) you migh...
