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

The stay was really excellent and the room sizes are much bigger than what the rest or Europe normally offers. The included breakfast offers a wide variety of dishes that gives you the option to vary. All dishes served were really tasty and there was plenty of everything. The staff of the hotel was more than pleasant, they were excellent.... More

Family room a not a family room, only ok for 2 people. It had 2 single beds and a small corner sofa meant to sleep 2, it was so small, my 8 and 11 year old couldn't fit, plus it was very uncomfortable. The shower was very mouldy, the worst I have seen in a hotel. The fan was so... More

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
