Reviewed September 29, 2012

Located in the heart of Turku, on a shopping street, near many shops and cafes, including the large department store Stockmann.
On the ground floor a decent restaurant. Breakfast is served in the restaurant hotel. Very good selection of hot and cold dishes is meatballs, eggs, rice cakes, beans, sausages. Great choice of ham, cheese, pate, herring, cucumbers, carrots, fruit, tea, coffee cocoa, baking, farmer cheese - can not stay hungry.
I had dinner in the evening at the hotel. The pasta was very decent quality. The bread and butter for free. Prices are average.
Rooms are simple but have everything you need. The bathroom has a hairdryer and shampoo in a dispenser. Turku pretty city. Take a stroll along the banks of the Aura and go to the Cathedral - not regret.

The Scandic Plaza Hotel is located at the centre of Turku, close to shopping, though not in the most pictoresque location.

The room was quite small, clean and very basic. The temperature was quite hot and there was no air conditioner, only a little fan on the window sill. Most things worked just fine, though.

The hotel had advertised offering free toiletries, but there were only two large bottles of hand soap and body wash fixed to the walls - no shampoo or conditioner. In the middle of the shower, the body wash ran out. When we tried to call to the reception for another bottle, no one answered.
The TV was very annoying and slow to use.

We checked out very early before the proper breakfast began. The staff were kind enough to provide us with a couple of sandwiches and tea/coffee in the lobby.

The staff was friendly, not overly polite though, as in some more upscale hotels.The lobby and restaurant area was comfortable and clean.

Overall, at this price, one might expect a little more amenities and service, although there was nothing horribly wrong with the hotel either.

The location of the hotel is really nice and its pretty nice from other terms as well but there is no AirCon! The only thing this hotel has is a fan in each room...

I personally cannot sleep in such hot rooms so never ever into this hotel; there are others available with proper AC in Turku as well!

Although the kitchen does not open until 17.00 Bryggman offers a selection of freshly made open sandwiches or home made tarts served with salad. Mini cakes also very tempting. Seating inside or outside on the pavement along the pedestrianised road. Watiress was very friendly and chatty.

Scandic Plaza is a typical Scandic hotel. It doesn't offer luxury at all but it doesn't have to. This easy and smart priced Scandinavian chain hotel is suitable for both business and leisure travel and a good choice for those who don't want to pay for a quirky design.
When staying in Scandic you always know what you get - for good or bad. Breakfast, for example, is always similar. The selection isn't even that wide. So: if you have gotten use to eat bacon and eggs for breakfast choose some other hotel or eat out.
Anyway, Scandic has tolerable prices. You can almost count on the fact you'll get a room for less than 100 euros.
Location of Scandic Plaza is convenient, in the middle of Turku, near the River Aura with many nice restaurants nearby.

I have spent 2 nights at this hotel for a business trip.
The room I had on the 4th floor was single room and a bit small.
The maintenance status was ok, and the bathroom was also acceptable and clean.

Personnel friendly but a bit slow check out due to one employee only during peak hour duty.

Also the personnel at the bar were cordial.

Overall a nice hotel.
Perhaps bit pricey, thus price level justified by perfect position in the town center, close to shopping spots.
