Very close to the bus (and train) station. Very clean, good size of the room. Minibar a bit noisy. Modern. Fair breakfast. Only bad thing is: quite limited time to do check in and check out. Will use again, location is extremely handy. Thank you

The beds are great, AC annoying, windows could not open, breakfast OK, service rrally great, internet access so-so. But, it has great price and great location so one might consider it worth it for a short visit - at least compared to the price of the bigger hotels!

A nice small hotel. A very clean room and had everything what is needed for a short stay. I got really great service every time I had to contact the staff. Everybody was nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

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
