“great located hotel with very friendly staff”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Very nice hotel with welcoming furniture and colors. Fine large family. Very good service from reception - the friendly staff really made ​​a difference. Centrally located and with good possibility of parking in the garage. Breakfast buffet was great and varied - a bit cramped between tables - which caused some trouble when many people ate the same time.

I think, that Scandic Plaza was better Scandic in Turku and I wasn't expect so much from this stay. Julia was suprising good hotel near city center. It was nice renovated and my two dotters liked also this stay. Check in take 30 minutes, which was unbeliavable. Parking was 15 euros for a day.

Julia has gone through a total change and is now a modern hotel. It's located in the city center and is a very good choice when visiting Turku.
Friendly staff in the reception and both check-in and check-out were effective. Parkingplaces indoors with à pricetag of 15 €.
I can recommend a stay at this hotel.

Nice & comfortable room, excellent breakfast, very good price. What else can you expect? Maybe à shower screen in the bathroom.

Room Tip: Don't go to thé rooms on the higher floors, you may have to wait a while for the lift!

As said on previous reviews this hotel is recently renovated. It is very neat and clean though the ultra-modern style is not just my thing but that´s just me. The pad of the bed could have been less slippy but the sleep quality was overall very good.
Excellent service with a personal touch. All the facilities are easily accessible. Breakfast is just superb! Lots of choice and the quality of food is first class.
Highly recommended if you wish to stay in the very center of Turku with very good value for your money!
