We stayed a couple of nights here recently. It is very conveniently located right in the centre of the city. You have the big shopping centre opposite, the market square, lots of pubs and restaurants, the riverside and buses all close by. It is very big, but also very popular so it may not be easy to get a room.... More

Stayed in the hotel on business, I was a bit worried when I had seen ear plugs on the bed side table, apparently they have a music nights, lucky for me this night was not one of them, but be warned it could be noisy, rooms are a bit tired and could do with updating.

This hotel is conveniently located by the market square. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The hotel swimming pool, like most in Finland was very very cold, and only open for very restricted hours. The staff were obliging, but claimed that the pot of tea was both earl grey and ordinary(builders) tea! Good choice for breakfast.

Hotel is situated in the center of the city, next to a marketplace. Train station is 1 km away. From marketplace is all the bus stops to ferries and airport. Rooms are little outdated, but quite spacious. Nice addition is that hotel guest can have free access to the nearby gym Lumo, which is open 24 hours. Breakfast and all... More

This is a smaller version of Sokos Hotel Hamburger Börs which is located opposite of it. This 3 star hotel is located in the heart of Turkru, opposite the very busy market square and close to the Cathedral. I checked in at the Sokos Hotel Hamburger Börs but was referred to across the street for my room! It was a... More

Annex building across the street of the Hamburger Börs hotel. Very tired looking rooms, uncomfortable, too soft beds, non existent sound isolation, noisy corridors, old bed linen/ pillows are not on your wish list after a long working. I cannot believe that in a modern, wealthy country like Finland we have this kind of establishment: shady, unclean and lack of... More

This is the "affordable alternative" of the famous and more fancy Hamburger Bors hotel at the other side of the street, in the very heart of Turku. Clean but very basic modernly furnished rooms, no service, not even a tea bag in the room available unless you order well in advance and pay for it separately. We had booked a... More

The hotel is unmanned and you check in at the Sokos across the street. Access to floors is via your key card but employees from the Sokos department store also use the same entrance so people are always going in and out. For this reason it seemed a little less safe and next time I would probably stay in the... More

This hotel is in the very centre of Turku. It is not manned, and you check in at its sister hotel Sokos Hamburger Börs just across the street. The rooms are ok - it was clean, the bathroom & shower was ok, the bed was comfortable, but don't expect to stay in your room too much, as it's pretty boring.... More
