Solo Sokos Hotel Paviljonki is a modern and stylish hotel in the heart of Jyväskylä city. Here the modernity does not only limit to decor, it also means present-day solutions in energy efficiency. Motion detectors and automation in room temperatures keep our energy consumption on a minimum level. Environmental friendliness is a matter of heart for our staff and we are passionate on finding new ways to make our hotel's everyday life a bit greener.
In addition to Green Key environmental program, we are also a proud member of Visit Finland's Sustainable Travel Finland program designed for tourism companies and destinations in Finland. Both of these valued programs require constant and consistent environmental work. Here's some examples of our green acts:
- We donate our old pillows and blankets to charity and for two years in a row we have selected Karaja's animal shelter. You can't believe how much the cat residents have enjoyed our fluffy pillows!
- In co-operation with Finland's World Vision we have donated our used work uniform pieces to a youth employment project in Kenya
- We are listed in ResQ application to sell leftover food from our breakfast buffet and restaurant Trattoria Aukio
Our restaurant Trattoria Aukio uses season's best ingredients to pamper the taste buds of our guests. Especially during autumm you can really taste the freshness when forest mushrooms handpicked by our outdoorsy chefs take over the menu! Our luxurious breakfast buffet consists delicacies produced by local farms and businesses. The all-time favorite of our guests is the delicious strawberry-rhubarb juice made by Ylä-Porkkala farm at Jämsä and the mouthwatering chocolate cake baked by local Miriam's bakery.
Our hotel is located in Central Finland's beautiful lake scenery; right next to the Lake Jyväsjärvi. The lake is surrounded by Rantaraitti, a recreational route that offers a great possibility for biking and jogging while enjoying the lake view. Our guests are welcome to borrow our snappy green city bikes for exploring the area.
Calming forest therapy is also available nearby, since there are four amazing national parks just a short drive away. In addition, not to mention the numerous nature trails that can be found from the close proximity of the hotel, such as Tourujoki nature trail and Harju area.
