Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at Scandic Julia for one night in December. We arrived into Turku on an overnight train, they offered us an early check-in and breakfast on the day we arrived. The staff particularly Irina was amazing and very accommodating. Hotel is in a great location, also a short walk to the station.

Had reserved a family room for 3 with sofabed, as we arrived in the middle of the night I notified hotel in advance to open and make the sofabed ready. This was not done, also cleaning not the best, bread crumbs on the floor and overall feeling that this hotel is not really the normal Scandic standard. Small room to be a "Family" room, limited space for luggage and clothes, narrow beds and pokey bathroom, would not recommend this to 3 persons. Breakfast was average, only real plus is the location in city center.

Stayed at the hotel with 2 kids in July 2021.

The entrance is a bit dreary and the reception is one floor up from the ground floor via an escalator. The reception and combined restaurant area are quite ok and recently refurbished. The breakfast served in the restaurant was good, did not have any other meals at the hotel. The gym was very, very small and you can just about to do a basic workout - alone. If there is someone else you’ll probably be in each other’s way.. The customer service at the reception was polite and friendly.

The room (Family Three) was nice and also probably recently refurbished. There was just about enough space for the three of us. Bathroom with a shower was ok. The beds were poor and way too soft for an average sized adult, and even my 11-year old daughter conplained the softness. The cooling worked well and despite 27 degree celsius weather outside the room was ok in the night time. The location is good right at the centre of the city with easy access to everywhere.

All in all a decent hotel for 1-2 nights stay with relatively cost effective rates, for longer stays I’d book somewhere else.

Turku has quite a bit to see and do in Finland. We stayed at four other Scandic hotels and this one had large rooms, better priced with a good location. Staff was very friendly. Rooms not on the main street were very quiet.

Excellent place in the center of Turku city and still quiet and comfortable.
I will return many times (as I already have). The location is near the river Aura where you can find many excellent fine dining restaurants as well also more everyday dining places and cafes. They are worth trying if you want to extend your experience beyond the hotel provided bar and restaurant (which are very good also).

Wonderful flexibility. Two adults and three children were accepted in a four person room. Dogs were welcome, which was necessary when travelling with the whole family. Surpsisingly good breakfast with vegan alternatives.

Me and my goddaughters stayed one night in Scandic Julia. The first look of the hotel lobby was satisfying. It looked great. Then the welcome office agent was really nice to us and welcomed us kindly. It was about to be our first night in Scandic Julia ever and the first night in a hotel ever for the girls.

The hotel room was nice in 5th floor. It was a family room so there was a couch that could also be turn into a bed. Not some finest design but I suppose it does what it has to. We personally didn't use it as a bed but as an add-on to the bed and for the safe of the girls so they wouldn't fall during the night. There were also some extra blankets and pillows in the closet. The hotel minibar was nicely cold so the girls' jogurts stayed fresh.

The bathroom was okay but rather small. I have seen more nicer ones but it did what it needed to. No complains about it.

Then we enjoyed the kid's play area for some time. I guess older kids enjoy it more than two under 2 year olds but that is not the point.

We then ordered some evening snack from the restaurant bar. The waitress behind the bar desk was really kind and helpful and a just professional customer servant. I liked her.

The girls didn't eat much of the home made chicken nuggets we ordered, but I think that they are just used to McDonald's nuggets instead of the real stuff.

I ordered the over cooked pork portion for myself and it was delicous! Just what I needed at the time. I couldn't eat the all but it was only because I just regularly don't eat that much. Really tasty portion, thank you who ever made it.

The hotel breakfast was also good. Nothing bad to say about it.

The girls enjoyed the hotel lobby as a playground running around the stairs and they had really nice time in Scandic Julia in overall and me too of course.

Nice city center hotel near the Aurajoki River. Nice and Clean rooms, perfect breakfast. After a long day it was nice to relax in the sauna. Parking garage was rather full but we managed to find a place.

Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.

We had our family room on the street side and some of us woke up during the night hearing the street noise. We enjoyed our stay.
