Good business hotel central in Turku. Rooms are not so big but well equipped. Good beds, lots of power outlets also by the bed. Good typical Scandic breakfast. Gym is very small. Good and nice service

A clean room with a comfortable bed. Location is quite OK. The buffet breakfast is both sloppily presented and limited in taste. Dining room badly kept. No newspapers in English or Swedish (!) language.

Good service, nice room, tasty breakfast. Also dog-friendly which I always appreciate a lot. Sauna and gym I did not visit but maybe next time. Only defect is that building is so 70's from outside, thus interior up-to-date. Nice location near beautiful riverside Aura.

Dear Junksu, Thank you for your feedback. We are more than happy accommodate also your four legged family members! Especially during spring and summer, Aura river's surrounding is great for a walk with dog. From our central location it's easy to hop on a bus to Ruissalo and explore conservation area. Welcome back and hope to see you soon! BEst...

This hotel is designed for the locals who know how to get in - it's a disaster if you are arriving late at night with heavy luggage and a crying...

Visiting Scandic Julia in Turku was not all pleasure: the room was ok, but the heating was not. The room was cold, but the restaurant was colder. We sat there freezing for more than an hour waiting for the food. And if it had been worth waiting for! But it was not! My veal had been reheated and was dry...
