We stayed for one night in Centro. The hotel is located very centrally, just one block from the city square. The room was quite small and cosy, as well as clean and quiet, with basic amenities. The service was friendly as well, we asked for a later checkout and got it without any hassles. It's not a very unique or... More

We stayed here for the one night we spent in Turku (which is definitely not enough time to spend in this beautiful and interesting city). This hotel is a great place for one or two nights. Its location is ideal for visiting most if not all the tourist sights in the city. Nearly everything is close. The castle is perhaps... More

We stayed two nights in this hotel. Location is ideal for navigating the city, and the hotel is mostly quiet as it is situated in a courtyard (which means not very inspiring views- a parking lot). The room was comfortable, adequate. Good bed, nice size bedroom (although tiny, cramped water closet bathroom). We were given a room in a corner,... More

Nice, average hotel with a good location and service. Breakfast was many-sided and plentiful, but we longed for some of the basic things, such as bacon. The room was very clean, cozy and there was enough space for two people. Bathroom wasn't spacious, but that didn't bother us too much. I would recommend this hotel, if you're looking for qualified...

Centro is a fairly small family owned hotel just one block away from the Turku main square. The hotel wants to give an "art hotel" look and feel which works fairly ok but not perfectly. Rooms are a bit small but clean and confy. Special mention goes to the breakfast serving which is rich and filled with fresh ingredients from... More

we stayed 5 days in Turku. The hotel was in a good location for visiting the city. The rooms are pretty small and old fashioned, although online it was presented as a modern hotel. The room was clean and had everything you need. Breakfast is not very tasty, but this is a problem we had in other Finnish hotels too.... More

This is a nice hotel off the main streets and behind the shops, therefore, nice and quiet. The location is very close to the centre of town without being too close. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was little to choose from for breakfast, but what was there, was good.

This hotel is conveniently located a few minutes' walk from the river and Turku's famous cathedral as well as the market square. The immediate surrounding streets have little to offer. It is best described as a modern, functional budget hotel which offers clean rooms and a good buffet breakfast. The decor is quite stylish. However, the bathrooms are very small... More

The hotel is very central, it is quiet, private parking, and the breakfast they serve is just great, for quality and for variety. The down side is that the room and the bathroom are quite small, plus it is rather expensive (but probably not for Finnish standards).
