“Middle of the city”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Stayed a night on a weekend trip to a party in Turku. We arriwed with another couple and the receptionist was very kind. As he did not find the standard rooms next to each other he upgraded us to two junior suites instead. So we got truly good value for our money.

Both the suites (282, 283) in the old jugend building had plenty of room. There was nice siting room with a couch, TV, and beautiful old fireplace. The bed in the sleeping room is comfortable with selection of pillow choises. There was no noise so I slept like a log. There is a kettle to cook some tea or coffee.

The breakfast room at 10 am on Sunday morning was very growded. The selection is good with both warm and cold dishes. The plates were filled promptly so no problem with the food. Only minor detail is missing bunnies or croissants. But I really wish we would have came earlier as then it might have been less crowded.

Hotel is located along the market square of the city so it is very doable to walk to most of the sights.

I was on a business trip and had a standard singleroom. The room was moderate, not maybe even that. Very basic furniture, some how little bit messy. So the pics you can find from the internet according to this hotel and the rooms are way too flattering.I didn't like the idea of having a room separate from the main building. It didn't bring anything extra. The sound of the traffic from the street was too loud and some guest came to their on room at the same floor as my room at the night time, and they were very noisy. It was a night between Thu-Fri! Air conditioner of the room had to be turned down because of the loud sound it was causing. The only good thing I can say of this experience is that the hotel hotel co-operates with a gym very close to the hotel, so a guest is allowed to use the services of that. That is a good thing for a sporty lady as me.

Very nice hotel right in the center next to the market square.
The hotel has several buildings.
We had a room on the top floor with a small window overlooking the city.
On the floor carpet. Big comfortable bed. There is a seating area with armchairs and a coffee table. The room had a TV, safe, iron and ironing board, tea set with tea and coffee.
In the bathroom - a hairdryer and a shower gel.
Breakfast is included in the room price. Very large selection of hot and cold dishes, juices, tea, coffee, cocoa, water.
All very tasty and high quality.
The hotel has a small pool and a sauna. There is a terrace overlooking the market square. The pool and sauna free of charge.
From the hotel in the morning there is a shuttle to the park in Naanantali. Tickets for the shuttle and to the park can be purchased at the reception. Recommend (cost is lower than in the park)
The hotel has a great bar with outdoor terrace, which is popular among local residents. There is a good restaurant.

This was the second time we stayed at this hotel. The location is great--right in the heart of Turku across from the central market square. There is limited on-site parking (not free) and great free wifi (not something Hilton hotels offer). The hotel bar and restaurant offer good food and service. The breakfast buffet is more than usual, but crowded. Take their recommendation and arrive more than an hour before it closes. As prices go, this was an ok value.

The room was small, but comfortable. The breakfast was quite good. I only wished that I could have slept! I had a room several floors up from the bar area, facing the Market area. It was so noisy! On Friday and Saturday nights, the noise finally ended around 4 a.m. I might be willing to stay there again, but never in the same location of the hotel.

If you plan to check out early in the morning, plan to wait awhile. It was ~15 minutes before anyone came to the front desk to help.

Also, do not have they book a cab for you. The cab ride itself was ~15 euros more than on the way from the airport!

I have been here few times, this time a good deal with an agency on trivago. the place is nice, centraly located, the restaurant is average but very confortable. rooms are cosy and nice althought I have the feeling if you do not reserve directly with them, they do not give you the best room. Breakfast is very rich in a big all. Recetption works.

Decent hotel in the middle of the city. Rooms are from the nineties, so they're not very modern, but everything is clean and in good condition.
The hotel also has 5 or 6 restaurants and a night club (only on weekends)
Price is reasonable, and the breakfast is really good.

Room Tip: The ones by the square are a bit noisy during weekends
