THE PAST AND THE FUTURE

The hotel building, Valtimontalo, was completed well over one hundred years ago, and it has witnessed a lot in its time. Before Valtimontalo was built, Porvoo’s first inn, Astenius Inn, operated on the spot. Guests included Finland’s national poet, J. L. Runeberg, when he visited Porvoo for the first time. Valtimontalo features an additional point of interest: its lanterns portray the face of Väinämöinen, a hero in Finnish Karelian folklore and the main character in the Finnish national epic Kalevala by Elias Lönnrot, a Finnish physician, philologist, and collector of traditional Finnish oral poetry.

The history of Valtimontalo and the city of Porvoo’s culture, tourism, and Finnish traditions have inspired and motivated us. We hope that when you stay with us, you will sense the history of Valtimontalo and the city as expressed by the RUNO Hotel Porvoo.

WELL-PLANNED AND DESIGNED, LIKE A POEM

DESIGN

Comfort and aesthetics increase well-being. That’s why we created a hotel where comfort and aesthetics come first, even in the smallest details.

The RUNO Hotel, an art nouveau building completed in 1912 next to the Porvoo Old Town’s gate, has been restored, preserving its original style. The interior’s modern rustic style highlights the temporal layers of recent history: the hotel combines Finnish and Nordic design with high-quality natural materials and a harmonious color palette.

In addition to a lounge, restaurant, and bar that are open to all, you are welcome to use a unique sauna and spa section in the attic as well as the modern meeting room facilities. The ambience in all of the 56 rooms is calming and relaxing. Each room is a unique experience worth a visit.

ART

Art makes for originality and creates stories, and RUNO is intended to promote these features, too. As a representative of Finnish culture, RUNO provides a stage for Finnish art.

RUNO Biannual Exhibition 

In the spring of 2022, RUNO Hotel Porvoo opened a new art exhibition concept – RUNO Biannual Exhibition. The concept consists of two large group exhibitions per year. The group show ‘Longing’ (which is the second exhibition this year) includes works by artists Valtteri Kivelä, Henna Nuutinen, Irina Pått, Riku Riippa, Jenni Rope and Sini Villi. All artists working in different techniques, their works seem to strech towards each other in a silent desire.

The RUNO Biannual exhibitions are developed and curated by visual artist Fanny Tavastila. The group show continues until April 2023. Warmly welcome!
