The hotel is basic, like an Ibis, and lacks charm but fortunately the receptionist I had made up for it. She is friendly and helpful and kind. I was here on a bike tour and she remember me 4 days later and let me check in earlier than normal time seeing how I was sweaty and tired. The location is... More

Very nice staff, serviceminded. The only thing is that you have to check in before 18.00, when they close the reception. Breakfast OK, but the breakfast room was rather small. The staff told me at what time to come, as they had a big group coming later in the morning. Price reasonable. The rooms are rather special, in a nice... More

Hotel Helmi is a very basic hotel with reasonable prices. Our room was clean and had everything we needed for a short stay. The breakfast is basic but sufficient. There was some kind of humming air-conditioning in the room, but according to the room manual the cooling function is in use in summer only, and soon it was too hot... More

The hotel is just steps from the bus station and also the railway station is very near. There is a large parking place next to the hotel (about 12 € for 24 hours) so arriving with your own car is no problem either. Also a bit more expensive parking in a garage is near (P-Puutori). We expected some traffic noises... More

This was booked through booking.com weeks ahead; after a stay in our Finnish relative's summer cottage an hours bus ride on from Turku. It is a good basic quality hotel, no frills and flourishs, so don't expect them, but very good value for money. Its selling point is its closeness to bus/coach station and bus to Turku airport goes from... More

Perhaps the greatest asset of the hotel is its location, just across from the Turku long distance Coach Station. As a matter of fact, the coach station could literally be an extension of the hotel parking lot (no street to cross). The bus to the airport (number 1) can be availed from across the street (side of the hotel) in... More

The hotel is more far away than I expected and not close to town centre, even though it is still within walking distance. The room was ok in the beginning, except some hairs in toilet ground. The major problem is that the cleaning afterwards was superficial and even no later. Except replacing the towels, nothing was cleaned up in the... More

We stayed two nights in a bedroom for 3 in this hotel. The price was very competitive and the room was clean and spacious (normally, this type of rooms can be a bit crowded). Also, the hotel has been recently refurbished and it looked very well. It is closed to the city centre.

This is a perfectly fine hotel for the price. Nothing amazing perhaps but nothing wrong either. Clean and good shower. Bed seemed fine. Secure and quiet, with free internet. While the room wasn't beautiful it was well serviced and big enough. The breakfast was good for the price - loads of choice and a nice cafe to eat in. The... More

We had two rooms here this summer and wonderful service. The hotel is very newly remodeled and in a great location. Close to the highway and the bus station. A short bus ride from the cruise ship terminals. Our 'host' at the front desk was delightful - she helped us with all kinds of arrangements in town, plus directions, bus... More
