Located close to Turku city square but in quiet sorroundings. Professional staff and excellent breakfast selection. Early check-in and late check-out was no problem. The rooms are quite small and have limited view but comfortable enough for a business trip a night or two.

Conveniently located in the city center yet nicely shielded from the traffic noise, this quiet hotel offers all you need for a pleasant stay in Turku. The concert hall and the university are within walking distance, as are a number of good restaurants. If you enjoy running (like I do), a lovely pathway along the river is just two blocks... More

A pleasant, quiet place to stay. Stylishly simple interiors, very comfortable beds, fantastic breakfast and simple dinner buffet (much appreciated the night I arrived tired and jet-lagged). This isn't a hotel for people who want to hang out in the hotel--but why would you want to do that! The staff were all friendly, pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable about the city.

I was a little bit disappointed. The location is great in the city center. The room was clean and renewed but the piccolo room is really small. The breakfast was not so good as I expected. The dishes was not really fresh, the cake was frozen.

Hotel is clean with very good location and great breakfast. Room is ok. On the other hand, the front desk staff needs some customer service training. When we arrived, there was construction going on right next door (and it appears that it will be going on for a very long time to come). We inquired about when they start and... More

I have to say that this hotel exterior is terrible. But luckily the rooms and the breakfast are excellent value for money and you can't beat the location. No frills here but would definately stay again.

Three of us stayed at Centro Hotel for two nights. Our room had two beds and they have made a bed on the sofa for our son. Our room was on the second floor at the corner. It was an ok room but the room needs to be freshened up for sure. By looking at other travellers photos, seems like... More

There are more many more plusses than minuses to this place from my experience. The room was spotless, shower powerful, bed comfortable, room quiet and reception service both efficient and helpful. The location is both secluded and very central at the same time. There is also free parking in the courtyard. Best price quoted was from the hotel itself which... More

My husband and I enjoyed our 1-night stay in this small and stylish hotel in downtown Turku. The staff person at the desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was pleasant, very clean, functional, with little touches of sleek Scandinavian design. Free parking available in the courtyard and the breakfast (included in the price) was very plentiful, with fruits,... More

For a central city hotel, the Centro is pleasantly small, not dominating on the landscape. It is located in a courtyard, surrounded by larger buildings - and hence shielded from traffic noises. At the same time, it offers convenient access to the amenities of the riverfront, to the two universities, to the market square, and to the transportation terminals. The... More
