“Great location, good room”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We stayed at the hotel for one night. The room was pretty basic.

First we thought that we couldn't have the breakfast due to our early check-out but it turned out that because of a request from a big group the breakfast was served earlier than usually. I'd wish better info in the lift or somewhere about the breakfast.

The location of the hotel is perfect - we walked from the train station and took the bus from the market square (Kauppatori) to the harbour.

We were given a room for smokers without informing about it. When asking another room, we got one in a cheaper nearby hotel. However, we got it at cheaper price when requesting.

Room was ok, except curtains, that didn't work properly to make room dark. We waited for a breakfast quite long, since starting time was wrong in some papers.

We stayed 2 nights at Sokos Hotel City Börs, it's right opposite to the main building Sokos Hotel Hamburger Börs. Reception, sauna and pools + breakfast are at the main building, but at summertime it was not a problem to cross the street many times a day. City Börs is perfect for families; there was a big refrigerator in the room and microwave oven in the hallway, just outside our room. Especially travelling with small children, easy to have some snacks in the fridge! The room was a family room, there was plenty of space for 2 twin beds + 2 extra beds.
During the summer season they have a separate breakfast room for families, great! And it is located right next to the kid's playground. Sauna and swimming pools also nice. And for adults; you can use the fitness center next door for free!:)

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights.

Location - The hotel is conveniently located right infront of Market Square. Walking distance to most shops; bus station and good restaurants.

Room - It is "OK" but could be better.

Breakfast - The choices are limited. Whatever offered will be sufficient to keep your stomach full for the day.

Pricing - Comparable to those of competitors. Obviously if you have a corporate rate, it is much reasonable.

Room service - Inconsistent. There were days I can still find long hair in the room (I have short hair).

Amenities - No frill provided in the room. Bring your own room slipper to be comfortable. It was awkward to walk in the room without a room slipper given. During rainy days, umbrella were not offered as you are expected to have one on your own.

Wi-fi - It is complimentary from the hotel but you are forced to key in the password. The issue is, the hotel issue a unique password which last you for 24 hours. Hence, you need to repeat to key in the password all over again every 24 hours. This is quite troublesome.

Room Tip: Room facing the Market Square is lovely, however, do bear with the sound of bus should you open the...

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel and next time I will choose a different one. My Room was pretty spacious and clean but located in a far-away located wing from the main entrance so it it a "travel" each time to get there. The "French" restaurant in the hotel has a nice design but the service was very disapointing. There were literally 7-8 people in that restaurant but when I ordered a dessert I was told I could have wait long for it as they are very busy (!!). Also, next day I was leaving very early, before 6, I did not get any breakfast box with food. I could eat last day food in a small restaurant place but only if I woke up half an hour earlier which is a lot at the morning. I know that others hotels offer breakfast box for early leavers. Not this one.

I've stayed 3d last week for business, first impression was like an old end seventies hotel. But the nice big rooms (which were refreshed) made it a pleasant stay.

Well located downtown Turku, very nice and pleasant hotel staff but very basic if you know this is part of the Radisson hotel group.
