This is a spa hotel aimed at older people....but, there are beaches close by, the bus service into Turku is good (frequent & long hours), there are activities to do too. so we enjoyed our stay. A little dated in places, but we thought it comfortable and well equipped, the spa area is nice and treatments are available.

The location of the hotel is perfect, close to the sea and beautiful Finnish nature. The beach was a bit dirty though :/ The staff is really nice and the restaurant serves good food, they have a nice pool area and access to the gym and other sporty activities. Not a wastr of time but no big deal either. Worth... More

We booked a last minute one night stay in Ruissalo to spend a relaxing and nice weekend. But did not exactly realize, that this property was mainly for older people, who are in need of physical rehabilitation. So mainly the hotelguests were around 80 years old, and sometimes it felt like we were in the middle of an Alfred Hitchcock-movie..... More

I, my friend and our two kids spent there a weekend in June 2014. We were happy with the pool area, although there were no special kids pool. there were plenty of possibilities for the kids to enjoy water. We were pretty much the youngest people on the house, but that was no problem for us - grannies were just... More

An old fashioned destination spa resort. Most of this very busy establishment, is filled with its target audience- the elderly & infirm. There are even nursing facilities right in the building. Two tiers of room categories; regular & mini-suites. Both really noisy, but far worse in the regular {small, basic} room. Zero soundproofing- I can even hear normal decibel conversations... More

Stayed over weekend. The hotel was overall unclean everywhere, also rooms not cleaned well at all. In the spa area smelled bad. Very expensive cafe and restaurant services and very poor quality. Beautiful nature though but far from city centre, only good thing was bus connection to the city centre. Not worthwhile money at all. Not recommending for tourists at... More

We stayed at this hotel when we went to Ruisrock Festival. Inside it looked like a hospital. There was no classiness , it wasn't modern, it just had a hospital feel. The reception staff looked very unhappy to be there and were quite rude. There was no air conditioning in the room, so it was very hot. The scenery outside... More

We paid quite a good price for a relaxing weekend at Ruissalo Spa Hotel. For that money we got: hospital looking corridors, waiters that eat the customers' french fries from the plate (when they think no-one can see), a bunch of over 60 year-old Finns covering from surgeries etc., breakfast table that is too healthy (you can buy your own...

The hotel is quite old. There were not a mini bar in the room, no air-conditioning. It was warm summer day, so the room was too warm. The breakfast was ok, but nothing special. The surraundings are very beautiful. We paid 150 eur/night and the hotel was quite a dissapointment compered to that. I would pay max 70eur/night.
