    Centrally located in the shopping district and only a couple minutes' walk to the main square. The Aura River is also close by. The room was clean and the hotel itself is well-maintained.

    Overgrowded breakfast and trough service

    The hotel had a great location, right at the downtown, but the service was poor: a person in the reception didn't bother to smile and I felt like she being too busy to answer my questions. I tried to ask about saunas and gym and she was just telling that I find the info in the booklet at the room and hurried me to continue from her desk. I felt like being on her way when she was here to serve some more important customers. The most horrible experience ever was the breakfast: I went there with the kids 1,5 hours before closing, to avoid the rush. But the lines were horrible, there was no empty table left, we had to wait the meal like in some lousy gas station, the people just standing with their plates as there was no place to sit. When we finally found a table it wasn't in the restaurant area but in the lobby. The people were standing back and forth all the time. Almost all the food from the breakfast table was gone before we got there and every object we had to wait quite a long time. I didn't feel like spending a peaceful holiday morning with a nice breakfast. Instead my kids got sad as not having the same things the people next to us were eating, I got mad as had to wait over 20min to have a cop of coffee and I really felt like the hotel breakfast was over booked considering its premises. Expecially in these corona times it really felt unsecure and stupid; and not even nice and peaceful what should be the main point in hotel breakfasts.

    Great location and friendly hotel

    The location of the hotel was amazing. Close to the major shopping, the city square, the river and the nightlife. The hotel service was very helpful, polite, willing to help and curious to foreigners. The room faced a tree lined street which gave it a nice calm feel. The bed was very comfortable and the restaurant food was good. The bathrooms could be modernized and the restaurant service was a bit confusing. The breakfast selection was typical Finnish style but some other Finnish restaurants offered a few more options. Overall, it was a good stay and recommended for visiting Turku.

    Convenient location.

    The hotel was very conveniently located, and the staff at reception were very welcoming and friendly. That said, the hotel was very basic and the rest of the staff (at breakfast, housekeeping did not look happy). It was very easy to get around Turku, from the hotel.

    A relaxing experience

    The stay was good, but not very special. Breakfast ordinary. The location in the center of the city with a lot of shops and cafes and art museums was great. The room and corridor were quiet, no disturbances. The curtains for the night could have been better, shutting out the light completely.

    Nice hotel

    Nice hotel. Friendly staff, all spoke English. Hotel is in town centre, close to all amenities. Only down side of hotel and it is only a small thing is that there wasn't any tea and coffee making facilities in the room. I would stay there again.
