Our host and Guide Markku was amazing from Helsinki Airport to Salo. We had a quick meal at the ABC along the Highway. Everything was exciting and the hotel personnel fantastic

The hotel is in the centre of the town close to the shopping area, bus stand etc. The person at the front desk was superb in his welcome. Extremely helpful. The rooms are cozy and nice. The highlight is the restaurant at the back. The food was very good and service excellent. A nice experience
