Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reception was friendly. Location ideal. Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast offered a huge variety of cold and hot options, including fruit. The bidet sprayer was awkwardly placed, but it's a plus they had one at all.

I don't want to be overly dramatic here, but I travel a lot and this is one of the worst value for money ratios I have experienced so far. The rooms were fine for a 2 or 3 star hotel, but I paid premium for both, room, breakfast and parking. Room was small, the TV probably 10+years old, the beds worn out and the room provided zero care products. The toilet seat was broken and the installed role of toilet paper 95% out. It felt cheap - and if I pay premium I don't wanna feel cheap. Bathroom was clean, but we has weird black lint all over the floor in the bedroom. I am not posh - I don't care - but for that price - unacceptable. The breakfast was exceptionally good and it even had loads of gluten-free, vegan and vegetatian options - of which I am none - but I appreciated the effort. The staff was great - the women at the reception were welcoming and helpful. I really enjoyed their effort, particulally in Finland, where people are usually very reserved.

Dear Daniel, Thank you very much for your stay and feedback. I´m very sorry, that you felt overpaying for your room. It is true that in city center located hotels prices are higher than normally on high demand season. Care products soap, shampoo and shower gel as well as enough toilet paper should be delivered to room before guest arrives. My deepest apologies that it was not so when you arrived! We are also glad to hear that you got good breakfast and helpful service at the reception. Hopefully we get a new chance to give you better room and service in the future. Kind regards, Kirsi / Shift leader Front office

The location was excellent, near all the cafeterias and restaurants. The hotel was very well sound proofed despite many families with children, who we noticed until breakfast. At breakfast there were all you can imagine.

Julia was good as we expected. Nothing spectacular, but everything just the way they should be. Clean and spacious room, good (and typical) Finnish hotel breakfast, frindly service and a good location.

Hotel has good rooms, and cleaning is excellent. What is best, is the friendlyness of staff. Also the children are extremely well observed at the hotel: always something extra things for kids to do, and a really good playroom in the restaurant, so that parents can enjoy their meal at ease!

Friendly staff. Room bit small, but nice and very clean. Children were specially welcome. Nice to have parking at the same bulding. Breakfast was very good and special diets were well taken in to a count.

I had a good experience when spending one night here. The room was spacious and clean, and it even had a sauna in the bathroom. Unfortunately I arrived late in the evening and wasn’t able to use it. Didn’t experience any of the facilities outside the room but can say that breakfast was good and gave a fresh impression. There are many Scandic hotels in the same area and I honestly don’t know which the best one is, but this was good at least.

The hotel is conveniently located near the main square of Turku and just a few minutes from the river. Rooms are spacious and modern although cleaning could be a tad better. Good wifi connection and the breakfast was also more than adequate. In case of late arrival they have a mini market in the reception that could help.

The bed were not that comfortable that I was expecting, therefore the quality of sleep were not the best. Which resulted in that I were tired all the time during my stay in Åbo. I wish that they would change beds to something more comfortable, otherwise good hotel.
