Excellent location, near the river and the cathedral. Nice rooms, quite and good service. Sauna and gum are convenient, gym a little bite small but acceptable. Many restaurants around. We will come back !

Room Tip: We were in the 535 on the corner with view to the cathedral and hill.

We were on two occasions in this hotel (start and end of our roundtrip). The successformula of the hotel is familyrooms. We were with 4 in a room for 110 euros/night. Our kids are 8 and 10 and in their case their bunkbed was somewhat small. So more suitable for smaller kids.
A lot of choice for breakfast (with a dressed up figure called Stigge for the children walking around). Excellent sauna, which is free in the morning and in the evening. We had an issue with the airco on our second visit, but had it dealt with correctly by the hotelmanager.
The staff is really great with clear and open communication. We only did not understand why the breakfastcrew kept trowing the crumbs on the floor.
Hotel looks like it has been renovated recently and it is well done. Great value.

This hotel typical Scandic quality. There is nothing wrong in the rooms or cleanness in anyway. Location is perfect - close to city center and market place.

Sauna is really nice and it is free every morning and evening for guests.

Gym was small, but relatively well equipped.

Breakfast is 9 points out of 10.

I overnight one night in a double room with my colleagues. Although the entrance was not promising the atmosphere on the main hall and rooms was stylish and Scandinavian. Room was spacious, bathroom huge and all well renovated

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.
