I have stayed several times in this hotel, during the visits to my former home town. The "Grand Hotel Hamburger Börs" opened in the first years of the 20th century and still stands by the Market Square. It has gone through many rebuildings and renovations during the century of its existence, but still has one art nouveau period wing left... More

Well situated next to the market place, quite large hotel built for pretty long time, but acceptable. However, don't go for a budget room: not even a bedside lamp in the room! Your only way of managing to go for sleeping is to grope in the dark to reach your bed. Awful... According to the frontdesk, it's not a standard... More

Börs has been there for a long time, as far as I know, and it feels like that as well. Its a large hotel with a very central location and standard rooms. Service was a bit crowded in the reception at each of the times I used it. Sauna-cabinet was great and by far the largest I have been to.

One night was ok. I have always hated the idea that the most part of the hunred yesr old been old hotel has been demolished and thia 70's building has been built. I cannot help but i I like only the old part of this hotel. New part is dull. Service is good and breakfast good.

Notions are already there in the lobby that this hotel has not been renovated in years.Accurate and friendly service from Front Desk. So it was the rooms, a mixture of a DDR experience or an Italian design and vintage Hotel. Very sparsely decorated room, temperature and preset uncomfortable warm 22 C. The windows did not open and gave a prison... More

Only stayed for a couple of nights in March on business so didn't get a chance to explore all of the hotel. There are a number of bars in the hotel, the main one which is great and has lovely views of the square or I also ate in the pub style one. Rooms are a good size, perhaps a... More

Hamburger Börs is one of the oldest hotels in Finland and it has a remakable history. Having been in two other historical Sokos hotels, Torni in Helsinki and Grand Hotel Tammer in Tampere, I waited for Oslo times charm and luxury - disapoinment was huge! The decor was mixture of tastless, warn out furniture from the 80's, no glamour or... More

A decent hotel in the centre of Turku. Rooms are a good size and comfortable. Reception staff are friendly and helpful, however the line to check in on a weekday evening can take upto 30 mins. Good bars and pub/restaurants in the hotel. In the winter season avoid rooms looking onto the main square, the snow ploughs and trucks like... More

I tend to stay at this hotel when visiting Turku simply out of habit. I've probably stayed there a dozen times in the past 5 years. The location is good, prices are affordable, swimming pool and saunas on the 7th floor, okay breakfast (though not great by any means), clean and quiet. Poker at the "casino" downstairs, a nightclub, couple... More

This hotel is really well located on the square, and malls within 5 minutes walk! Nightclubs, bars and restaurants around and in the hotel. If you look for a funny restaurant, I would recommend you the Harald Turku which is in a walking distance from the hotel.
