I liked this hotel. Stayed there only for one night. It is in the Shopping Centre Rewell Centre. The room was new, clean and nice, comfy bed, very good breakfast (better than in the chain' hotel in Turku where I stayed last week). The only thing that I can complain about is the fact that Windows are too thin and...

Hi, thank's for your kind words. We are very sorry to hear that the noise from the street woke you up. Because of the fact that the hotel is in the middle of the city, i'ts impossible to avoid all sounds from outside. We hope to see you again someday! BR, Henriette

The hotel is excellently situated and very comfy. Breakfast is quite decent and there is a very convenient sauna for ladies. The best part is the personnel at reception and at the bar. Kindest, most resolutive and efficient personnel.

The room had a nice size. A big chair to sit in and a little desk. Everything was clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast area...

It was a pleasant stay. The only thing that was harmful, was the noise and active life of the pidgeons(? )during the night.So my sleep was badly disturbed and I got very tired. And a bit angry. The staff, they were all very friendly.

I have spent there 2 weeks while on my business travel. Hotel has spacious rooms - bed was comfortable, there was enough light and electric pocket in the room. The only thing missing was some kettle and cups to make tea/coffe in the room. I have asked at the reception for this, but none seemed to understand what I want...

There should be some coffee or tea arrangement (Kettle) in the room. Bed mattress was quite hard. Lighting was perfect as compared to other Sokos hotels in different locations. Location of the hotel is perfect :)

This hotel is situated at the very city center and its clean, well-kept and has decent beds. So it has quite a bit going for itself. It´s an as much a standard hotel as any, and that is what makes it very forgettable. Breakfast was OK, the hotel bar is decent and the attached restaurant in really good. We had...
