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.

Staff are so friendly and helpful, and location is handy for train station, buses and bars, restaurants etc. Room was comfortable, but minor annoyances at not having plug socket for phone charger that was near to bedside table. Good buffet breakfast, and an excellent steak dinner in onsite restaurant.

Because of the train connections we arrived early at 11.30am and we were able to check in early which was very appreciated. We got a room in the second floor and right next to the main pedestrian street, some noises could be heard. The view was of a hooded building under renovation but we didn’t mind as we only stayed for one night and preferred to have an early check in rather than to wait until the official check in time for a better room. We also didn’t spend much time in the room.

The location of the hotel is perfect, right in the middle of the city center and within walking distance to everywhere. The staff was friendly. The interior is outdated and worn out like in all Scandic hotels I have visited. I would recommend a renovation when there is a chance. The breakfast room(s) is too small and it was very crowded. You could not really enjoy the breakfast. The breakfast itself was okay, nothing special.

As Scandic friends member we got a -20% discount and the room price was still 150e for one night!! For this price you expect more than just a good location. Also last time when we stayed in another Scandic hotel, members were offered a complimentary non-alcoholic drink. It would be a good idea for Scandic plaza Turku to also remember the members somehow, it’s the little things that matter and make the experience memorable.

Scandic Plaza is your average, clean, safe hotel with very nice staff and good breakfast. It has one special benefit: parking. Parking hall Aimo Kivikukkaro is right next to the hotel and it's only 11 euros / 24h, if you are a Scandic club member (joining is free). You can drive in and out freely, very convenient! Just remember there are several Aimo-parkings nearby (I drove to the wrong one first). Turn from Humalistonkatu to Yliopistonkatu, it's an ending road.

More of an hostel rather than a hotel. It is a shame that the hotel which is in such a central location in Turku is so rundown. The room itself was very dowdy and textiles were not clean, they were stained by previous guests. The room was extremely small and the bed was not big enough for two adults. The breakfast buffet was below average. Receptionists forced us to join a Scandic Rewards loyalty program and were unable to tell the benefits of the loyalty program when asked. We chose the hotel for the price, but would suggest opting for more contemporary hotels in the area such as Wiklund or newly renovated Seurahuone.

The interior of the hotel is bit outdated and worn as said in many reviews. It didn"t bother us as we just stayd there one night sleeping 😆

Breakfast was ok (quite standard stuff), staff was friendly and the covid situation felt safe.

The location is good in the middle of the city. About 100eur for two persons and car parking was not too bad price.

Only finding the parking was bit hard, almost accidentally found it, just had to back up few meters (hard to notice quite small signs when driving in unfamiliar city).

In total, ok stay, 3,5 points 😁

Nice, clean comfortable hotel at good location. Nice friendly staff, and good brekafast. Due to Midsummer the bar was unfortunately mostly closed, and we had to go elsewhere. Room was nicely airconditioned, and beds good, but closets were a bit inadequate, as so often at hotels. If you're staying more than one night it's annoying. The thing I dislike is that you cannot leave any device in chargers If you're not at room, because the electricity won't work.

The room felt like it was last decorated in the 1980's; no relation to the 1920's period of the architecture. I had a superior double room, but it was slightly shabby. The cafe in the lobby was closed all my stay. The giggly arrogant man at the reception had no idea of customer service or occasion. A professional friend in the hotel business said that the Scandic chain has such dominance in the Turku market that they've turned arrogant and don't value customers. I agree and will never return.

The weather was so nice that we decided to stay one night in Turku after our Stockholm cruise. This hotel is centrally located on the main pedestrian street.

On arrival at 8:45 in the morning, we changed our booking from superior to standard because standard rooms were already available, superior not. Also, we changed the booking from money to Scandic points. In June, there is a 50% point offer at this hotel. One night is just 12500 points.

We got our room on the 5th floor. The room was quite okay for a standard room. Some renovation is needed. What we missed most was an electric kettle to make coffee. Instead, we found a trouser press in the wardrobe. Who uses them anymore?

We had a pleasant dinner at the hotel restaurant Bryggman's. It has a nice summer terrace.

Although the hotel was fully booked during our stay, it was quite easy to find a table at the breakfast. The worst rush hour was over before 10:30 on Sunday morning. The food selection was good. The bread was fresh and still warm.

Avoid to stay at Scandic Plaza unless you like run down and dirty rooms. Dust all over, behind the desk, in the bathrrom etc. The hair and dust in the bathroom had been there for several weeks. I've worked in the industry for years and I know when I see that the cleaning staff isn't given the proper time to clean. And the management dosen't care. Overprized and absolutely nothing positive to say about the hotel. The staff seemed nervous and unprofessional. I will never stay at a Scandic hotel in Finland again if this is the standard for a well known brand.
