In general our stay here was fine. The staff was very helpful, even researching a bus stop near our somewhat obscure destination. The location is right on the pedestrian street in the middle of the city within walking distance of most sites in the city. It was very hot when we were there so we did miss air conditioning. Our...

Staying just one night, which happened to be one of the hottest this summer... There was no AC in the room but an electric fan that helped a bit. This is not typical weather for Finland so I'm not judging too hard on it... Breakfast was the great Scandic standard I expected and service at the reception was friendly. The... More

(Just fan) - Housekeeper just took away our second card to run the electricity. So when we came back the laptop wasn't charged. - The... More

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
