A modern and comfortable hotel with a friendly front desk staff. The hotel is located on the bank of the River Aura, within walking distance of the train station and the most of the major museums. We had a room with a river view, which we found well worth the extra 10 or 20 euros. We loved the "Super Breakfast" buffet which was included in the price of our room, and had a wonderful dinner at the hotel restaurant.

I think there should be a minibar in every room ( so did we but it was totally empty). Foam beds were just perfect, and generally the room was good and clean. A little hassling during the check-out, but it didn't matter, receptionist fix everything smoothly. Parking fee for hotel guest was something that I didn't understand 20€/night. Surrounding area is very great on the riverside.

Room Tip: take a superior room w riverview

Stayed 1 night on business. Got a free upgrade on arrival to a superior room with great view over river. Memory foam beds are comfortable - much better than standard chain hotel fare. Good location on the river in Turku - short walk to main part of town and 20 minutes taxi to airport.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for a room with a river view

The hotel was really full when I was staying in Turku for business. Only room I got was a standard room with a quite bad view. It was ok, but nothing special.

The gym was surprisingly bad (old equipment) and the sauna was just terribly small and too hot. Especially the gym and sauna were surprisingly bad since the hotel is otherwise really nice and the service is really good. The breakfast was really good and wifi worked well - so a lot of good things also.

What great service... I arrived at least 2 hours before my luggage, the staff charged my phone and sorted my case as soon as it arrived. Great room, comfy bed and the opportunity to sit outside whilst having a bar snack was welcome after a difficult days travel.

Nothing was any trouble and when I checked out the next morning they remembered by name and situation without any prompts.

Thanks for a great stay

What can I say, it's Radisson. Everything was great, especially the riverside view from my window.
Unfortunately I've staid for only two nights and due to the tight schedule I was unable to properly take advantage of all this hotel has to offer.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with riverside view.

I really liked both the hotel and the location last time so it was natural for me to chose the same hotel again on my second trip to Turku. Nothing to complain about in this hotel except that the gym could have been a bit larger. :)

Room Tip: Same tip as usual; choose a room higher up in the building (less noise) and some distance away from...
