Hotel is clean with very good location and great breakfast. Room is ok. On the other hand, the front desk staff needs some customer service training. When we arrived, there was construction going on right next door (and it appears that it will be going on for a very long time to come). We inquired about when they start and...

I have to say that this hotel exterior is terrible. But luckily the rooms and the breakfast are excellent value for money and you can't beat the location. No frills here but would definately stay again.

Three of us stayed at Centro Hotel for two nights. Our room had two beds and they have made a bed on the sofa for our son. Our room was on the second floor at the corner. It was an ok room but the room needs to be freshened up for sure. By looking at other travellers photos, seems like...

There are more many more plusses than minuses to this place from my experience. The room was spotless, shower powerful, bed comfortable, room quiet and reception service both efficient and helpful. The location is both secluded and very central at the same time. There is also free parking in the courtyard. Best price quoted was from the hotel itself which...

My husband and I enjoyed our 1-night stay in this small and stylish hotel in downtown Turku. The staff person at the desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was pleasant, very clean, functional, with little touches of sleek Scandinavian design. Free parking available in the courtyard and the breakfast (included in the price) was very plentiful, with fruits,...

For a central city hotel, the Centro is pleasantly small, not dominating on the landscape. It is located in a courtyard, surrounded by larger buildings - and hence shielded from traffic noises. At the same time, it offers convenient access to the amenities of the riverfront, to the two universities, to the market square, and to the transportation terminals. The...

The stay was really excellent and the room sizes are much bigger than what the rest or Europe normally offers. The included breakfast offers a wide variety of dishes that gives you the option to vary. All dishes served were really tasty and there was plenty of everything. The staff of the hotel was more than pleasant, they were excellent....

Everything is fine at Cenrtro Hotel in Turku (Åbo), but not the temperature in my little room for 2 in 2. floor. As hot as 27 celsius is too much for many people trying to sleep. This hotel-rooms need aircondition for use in juny/july. The ceiling fan helped a little, but my wife did not allow me to use this...

The rooms are quite clean but give you a very cheap feel. There's no air conditioning, no fridge and man I do hate those shower curtains. The breakfast was ok, but there was very little left, much of which was never replaced. There where no more parking spots at the hotel so we had to park on the steer, for...
