Original Sokos Hotel Hamburger Bors
Ranked #6 of 16 Hotels in Turku
Reviewed July 26, 2013

The location is good, because the hotel is located close to the market (Kauppatori) and a couple of blocks from the river.
In summer, rooms (we were in a superior room 5th floor) were very hot and the central ventilation was not very effective. The room was quiet and fairly clean. The breakfast staff were very polite and nice

Location could not be more central, many sights are within walking distance. All the city buses stop in the market place in front of the hotel.
Hotel is huge and the rooms are situated in several buildings connected by long corridors so expect to walk a lot inside the building. One part of the hotel is in another building on the other side of the road. Rooms facing the market place and in lower floors have some street noise but windows insulated the sounds rather well.
Our twin room was spacious enough with a small desk and an easy chair. TV was old with bad reception and the remote control did not work. Would have complained but reception desk had always such long queues that we did not bother. Free wifi worked well.
Bathroom was big enough but there were not enough shelves or hooks to place our stuff. There was not a full-length mirror but there was a proper hairdryer and ironing board.
Breakfast buffet was good but nothing special. It was always really busy but well-managed.
Overall an OK stay but probably will not return as there are more comfortable hotels in Turku.

There are more than 1 Sokos hotel in Turku, this review is about the Hamburguer Bors.
The room was big, clean and very comfortable, staff are really nice and helpful, the location is excellent, there is a swimming pool and sauna. The only bad thing is that you have to wait to be seated for breakfast, and it might take some time, but that's a minor thing, the hotel is great.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are quieter, there are some with a balcony.

Ok hotel. Central location. Standard room ok, funny smell in toilet (room 340), remote control broke. Some noice from the street during the night. Not good value for the money, there are better hotels in Turku same or almost the same price. Hotel is ok if you value location.

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.
