Everything is fine at Cenrtro Hotel in Turku (Åbo), but not the temperature in my little room for 2 in 2. floor. As hot as 27 celsius is too much for many people trying to sleep. This hotel-rooms need aircondition for use in juny/july. The ceiling fan helped a little, but my wife did not allow me to use this... More

The rooms are quite clean but give you a very cheap feel. There's no air conditioning, no fridge and man I do hate those shower curtains. The breakfast was ok, but there was very little left, much of which was never replaced. There where no more parking spots at the hotel so we had to park on the steer, for... More

Small hotel with clean rooms. You can sense lack of friendly staff as you step in the hotel. The walls are not isolated, so expect to hear the peoples' voice as they pass your room. It has restricted number of free parking places. Breakfast was not fresh at all and seemed to be remained from previous days.

A family run hotel in the centre of town. Just 4 minutes to the main market square but at a peaceful location. Of course most of town is peaceful except weekends. A the personal is nice and friendly. Late chek in was no problem and booking worked well over the web.

For people who travel a lot a very good option. Absolutely worth its money. Situated in the centre of the city. The Breakfast which is included is unbelievable. I have never got such a rich and various breakfast for this price for a room included. The staff is friendly but distant - not that sincere as I used to know... More

The hotel was much lower than my expectation. The room was clean and decent, but the pillow and blanket were not good, staff weren't friendly either. The breakfast, included a lot of things but not fresh at all. Bad fruits, obviously remained from previous days or weeks, and the same with other things like cheese, etc. There was not even... More

We stayed at Centro Hotel for 2 nights. It is a 4* hotel and it gives exactly what you pay for and more. It is very central so you save money on taxis (we never used one) and it has a lot of restaurants nearby.

I was very happy. As far as I am concerned, this is a four star hotel for a very reasonable price for Finland. I paid 72 euro a night for very comfortable room and a delicious breakfast. Front desk personnel are terrific...always smiles and helpful. Toilet overran in my room and they couldn't fix it so moved all my things... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights and really enjoyed it! It's small and surprisingly modern and chic, compared to the kind of grey and sort of brutalesque entrance from the street. This is also one of the good sides of this hotel: it is located on a courtyard, so there is no "disturbance" from the city life. Once you... More

The location was excellent - very close to the center of Turku. However, the room was quite modest, clean but not appealing. Too impersonal, a bit like a boat cabin or something. Breakfast buffet was good, but very noisy because of the acoustics and the number of families with children in a room (the room has nothing absorbing the sounds... More

Centro Hotel is a modern boutique hotel right in downtown Turku - just a short walk from the market square, shops and museums. The hotel faces the inner courtyard and despite its central location, the atmosphere is tranquil. Trendy decor, modern art and a great breakfast are just a few reasons to choose Centro. ... more   less
