“Average stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Hotel itself is nice spacious 1970s construction in nice location. It's renovated rather recently and is clean and nice. Small details like broken toilet cover was a bit strange when the price of the room was rather high.

View from 4th floor room facing street was really sad. Mostly visible was a lower sections roof and wall of some utility wing.

Funny detail I haven't run across before was a five minute concert of cooling snapping plastic parts of the lamps after turning them off.

Room Tip: Higher than 4th floor if facing street.

I stayed there one night during July 2013. The hotel is old, sometimes you can see that. Lobby and other public areas look nice, 70's style.
Reception was quite friendly even though we arrived early. Had to wait the room for an hour.
Room was clean, not very big. Bed was too soft for my taste, but still ok. Bathroom had a bit of a flaw, after showering the water stayed in the middle of the bathroom floor, so in order to do other things there have to wipe the floor first.
View, or lack of it was a bit of a disappointing (4th floor), only thing you could see was the roof of the other wing.
Breakfast was rather good. Easy to find different things.
Garage was little bit challenging to enter with a family car. Tight corners and small parking places.
Over all pretty nice place to stay. River is close, walking distance to the market square. Might stay here again.

Room Tip: Higher floors, river view might be good.

We enjoyed our stay in Turku and this hotel helped us with all our travel problems. The rooms were a little smaller than I have become used to but they were clean and very well appointed. The river was a nice touch we were not expecting and watching it was a nice treat. The breakfast was all you could wish. Staff was great and the parking fees were over the top I thought.

Room Tip: Try to find something else to do with your car.

We arrived at 7am off the Silja Line but check-in wasn't until 2pm. They allowed us to stay in a different room for an extra cost. The room was very clean and well put together. We had a nice view of the river. Breakfast was pretty good. They even accommodated me as best they could when I asked for some ice. Good location as well.

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
