The location is really good. It's close to all the main attractions and shops. You can also leave your car in the hotel parking garage free of charge ! There was no air-conditioning and the rooms are quite hot in the summertime. Our room 325 was pretty good, but cleaning was poor, he forgot change the towels and clean the... More

In the 21st century, what kind of a established chain hotel does NOT have air conditioning? The room, while being OK in other aspects, was very hot. The sun had been gazing into the room all day, and upon arrival we find out there is no AC. The personnel provided an electric fan, but how can anyone sleep peacefully in... More

Beds are quite comfy, and bathrooms ok but overall rooms are on the small side, especially for 3 people. Make sure you book a bigger room if more than 2. Breakfast is loud and chaotic- and more like a cafeteria. Centrally located, but won't be coming back.

We stayed three nights in a Superior Plus room. The room was very spacious: it had bed and sofa-bed, separated by a cupboard, making this almost a two-room apartment. Toilet (with bath and shower) was also large. The room was of good quality. It was quiet and hotel was able to arrange a nearby room for rest of our group.... More

Scandic Hotel Plaza Turku is a real find in the heart of Turku right in the middle of Yliopistonkatu Street, which is the main pedestrian area. The hotel has a typical Scandic consept:basic but clean. Although it is centrally located it is quiet, because cars aren´t allowed in the street next to it. Rooms have also a safe.Scandic service is... More

An excellent hotel in the center of Turku, nearby the Market place and at 10 minutes of the Cathedrale of Turku by walk. The staff is friendly, really helpfull and very professional. The rooms are clean, big and very well-equiped. The breakfast buffet is very good, with eggs, bacon, sausages, fruits, bread, cheese... It is open really early (6h30) and... More

Stayed here whilst on business recently. The rooms are spotlessly clean and a good size, would have preferred a double bed but the single one was comfy enough. Good TV with laptop connection, good bathroom, mini bar in room. The staff here are excellent, very welcoming. Very good food in the adjacent on street restaurant and a very good selection... More

Another boring chain hotel, I think about 80 % hotels in Finland are like this one, and you can barely see any differences between them... The room was really small and breakfast was satisfactory, but nothing really special... My stay was really short and I didn't spent too much time in the room, so it's hard to say anything more...

While walking the streets of Turku, I passed this small restaurant where they had a guitar player playing Jazz like music. Once I was in the atmosphere was great and the food was nice... Great place to wind down.
