A house with thousands of stories
Motel IsoVaIkeinenis builtin 1971. Highway 5 was brand new and tourism started to raise in Finland. Beautiful place beside lake Isovalkeinen, an easy reach and place near the city were the final reasonsto start a new motel.
The motel was first planned as an american-style road motel, where you paid your room and got your key in a separate building, where you could also buy gas. Restaurant was in its own building.
During the years IsoValkeinen had 2 new row houses for hotel rooms, a sauna by the beach and large conference facilities. Hotel has had many complete renovations. The last of them was completed in 2019. Nowadays hotel has 100 well-equipped rooms in 4 row houses, contemporary banquet and conference rooms (9 meeting rooms, 4 - 400 people), lakeside sauna with cosy cabin and versatile Restaurant Tori.
To the people of Kuopio Hotel IsoValkeinen is a part of city identity. Almost every on of them have their own experiences from tens of thousands of occasions and happenings in Hotel IsoValkeinen during the years. The locals still call us "Valkeisen Motelli" as in 1971, of which we are proud of. This active almost 50-year-old hotel is going strongly forward!
