    Conveniently located at the heart of Turku.

    The room was very cold in the night. There is no real investment in the interior design, the rooms are very 90s and minimalistic.

    Conveniently located at the heart of Turku. Possibility to use well-equipped Motivus gym nearby a plus (although on extra cost) also taking into consideration the rather modest gym at the hotel.

    There were no international channels on TV, just Finnish. The floor of the room was a bit cold but it was in the middle of winter so that might not be a permanent situation. The bathroom was warmer, though.

    Great location, good service. The interiors refer to the hotel's glorious history but still have a modern touch to them. Lovely photographs of the hotel and Turku in good old days when the place was not spoiled by new construction : ). Excellent breakfast with delicious options for vegetarians and vegans.

    One small minus that was given for staff is that information about free prolonging of check out with one hour was forgotten and we got cleaning stuff running into our room, and reception calling us about check out. It could have gone better if they had that information somewhere.

    Breakfast was amazing. Love the space, love the food, love the technology. View from sauna and swimming pool was super. Thou on a day we were there men had amazingly big sauna with view, while women had a small one without it. Sauna has some shaving and shampoo stuff - big plus for a woman at least. All in all location is perfect also
