Radisson Blu Marina Palace Hotel, Turku
Ranked #1 of 16 Hotels in Turku
Reviewed January 31, 2013

The service was good, but the hotel is quite standard.The view to frozen river was nice. The breakfast was simple, just finnish standard. The breakfast room is like a old school canteen, big and not attractive.I thought that the hotel will be much more modern after big renovation, but it looks very much same as several years earlier. When we visited this hotel in the end of January there were still all Christmas flowers on the tables telling that the hotel is not living on this date.

Nice Hotel. Usually I stay at Sokos Hamb. Bors. I wanted to try something else and I was satisfied. Big room, free wifi, nice view (iced river). Out of the crowed but walling distance from center and train station. Vey good if you rent a car, they have a huge park (not very cheap:17 euro/day). The breakfast is great a good start for a working day. All kind of food including frech orange juse you can squeeze yourself (plus in a 4 stars hotel where competitors serve industrial juice). The gymn is correct, the sauna too little.
I will stay again at Radisson Marina Palace

Room Tip: ask for river view

Stayed here on business January 2012. River view room is spacious, clean and well appointed.
The views of the frozen river are fantastic.
Meals in the restaurant are faultless.
Staff are all friendly.
The gym, the main reason I chose this hotel, is adequate at best. A few cardio machines , a scattering of light dumb bells and a multi station machine which will do for a light work out for two days stay but not enough for anyone serious about training.
Rooms are very hot making sleep uncomfortable.Breakfast is standard fare. Ok.

This was my second time in Radisson Blu Marina Palace in Turku in 2012. I liked again the spacious room with a river view and the reasonable room price for christmas days. The staff members I met were friendly at the reception as well as in the breakfast room. I know that I repeat myself, but this hotel is a bit dull. Yes, in spite of the great location on the river. The lobby is dark, the breakfast boring and the room walls are crying for art. I want to have thrill in my hotel... Ok, we met the Santa on our way out in the Christmas Eve.

Room Tip: Ask for the river view.

We upgraded (10 Euro) to a river view room and really loved it. Sauna was great (included in price), wifi worked well, great location, plentiful breakfast buffet. We walked just steps from the hotel to an Italian restaurant that was perfect. Easy walk from the train station. Even though there were only 6 hours of daylight in December, the hotel location on the river made it a very enjoyable 2 days here.

Good business hotel. River Aura is located near the city center.
Large clean rooms with a good desk for working.
Excellent buffet breakfast.
The only negative aspect was that when coming from dinner lounge was closed before midnight and the nightcap was not consuming. However, it was a Tuesday night.
Turku The Market Hall next to where you can buy local delicacies at home as souvenirs.

Room Tip: Take a room overlooking the river

Make sure to take a room overlooking the river; it's well worth it. Spacious environment. Central location. Good breakfast. Staff at the front desk are very helpful. This is one of the best places to stay in Turku.
