This was the bast nights sleep that I've had since arriving in Finland. Since it never really gets dark here, I've had trouble sleeping but, this room was nice and dark and very quiet. The staff was helpful and friendly to this American girl! Breakfast was excellent, as well. Very nice facility!

The trip that I had was extremely nice so I try to be objective... Anyhow, the hotel was quite clean as they usually are in Finland, the breakfast was excellent and the staff was friendly. The situation of the hotel is great; it's next to the market place and the shopping facilities. The Aura-river is also nearby. The bus to... More

A bit older hotel but still nice and clean. Could get rid of the carpets though, laminate flooring is better for the rooms. Some rooms have quite nice bath tub. Some have motion sensor showers which is one of the most moronic ideas ever. Good breakfast. Easy access, close to the city center.

Free parking in weekend evenings(sat-sun) near the hotel and nearby plenty of restaurant to choose from. We desided Sergios along the river just a couple... More

This hotel is very conveniently located in the city centre just a few minutes walk from the market square and various other amenities. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. They put in an extra bed for my son to sleep in. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful. The staff in the restaurant, however, were not very... More

The lobby is tiny and the furnishings in my room showed considerable wear, but the room itself was very pleasant: large and comfortable, with the largest bathroom I've ever had in a Scandinavian hotel. The breakfast buffet was quite nice and the location to the Market Square and other Turku amenities was convenient. Didn't knock my socks off but I... More

I have stayed at least 20 times at this hotel but unfortunately the service level has gone down. In my profile I have asked for a room with working possibilities because I often work in the evenings on my computer. Recently I have never got this kind of room although I have booked my stay long in advance. The front... More

It is not a 5 star hotel, but very cozy and comfortable. My room 430 was huge and had a big renovated bathroom. Front desk staff is friendly and accomodating. I will stay in this hotel in my future visits to Turku

I liked it there and if back to Turku again, I would choose the same plae to stay. Some people complain that the hotel is worn out and needs to... More

Hotel is old and the last renovation was done more than few years ago. Our rooms in 6th floor were comfortable and the view towards the Aura river (westwards) was good. The location is quiet even in Saturday evening. On the other room the ladies discussion from next room was easily passing to the room. (partly because there was no... More
