“Quite a catch”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Scandic Hotel Plaza Turku is a real find in the heart of Turku right in the middle of Yliopistonkatu Street, which is the main pedestrian area. The hotel has a typical Scandic consept:basic but clean. Although it is centrally located it is quiet, because cars aren´t allowed in the street next to it. Rooms have also a safe.Scandic service is friendly and helpful, Not all Scandic restaurants are my favourites, but Bryggman´s restaurant and deli in the groundfloor is a rea delight. It´s furnishing is simple but the kitchen doesn´t fail you. And it´s handy to use the 6€ discount bill they give you at check in. Don´t forget to order the free Scandic membership card in advance, At the weekends they give you 20% discount in the Bryggman´s. This hotel gives good value for your money if you aren´t keen on luxury.

Room Tip: We always ask for rooms upstairs(there is only 5 floors) and facing the pedestrian street,

An excellent hotel in the center of Turku, nearby the Market place and at 10 minutes of the Cathedrale of Turku by walk. The staff is friendly, really helpfull and very professional. The rooms are clean, big and very well-equiped. The breakfast buffet is very good, with eggs, bacon, sausages, fruits, bread, cheese... It is open really early (6h30) and is closed at 09h30 am.
There is also a restaurant at the hotel. The food is simple but of quality. The choice is quite broad (meat, fish, pasta...). A good choice to stay and enjoy in Turku.

Stayed here whilst on business recently.

The rooms are spotlessly clean and a good size, would have preferred a double bed but the single one was comfy enough. Good TV with laptop connection, good bathroom, mini bar in room.

The staff here are excellent, very welcoming. Very good food in the adjacent on street restaurant and a very good selection for breakfast in a spotless and well tidied breakfast room.

Good central location, car park next, quiet and relaxing.

I've read some of the other reviews and if this only warrants an average then some of the other hotels in Finland must be amazing!

Another boring chain hotel, I think about 80 % hotels in Finland are like this one, and you can barely see any differences between them... The room was really small and breakfast was satisfactory, but nothing really special... My stay was really short and I didn't spent too much time in the room, so it's hard to say anything more about this place. The staff at the reception was fast and the location is very central. A good choice for a short business trips, but for holidays I would appreciate something more homey...

Have stayed in this hotel a few times now.... In town centre area of Turku but very quiet in rooms... Very well appointed in this modern hotel.... very good breakfast selection and breakfasting staff keep the tables spotlessly clean as people leave after eating in this busy area... Lots of fresh items catering for all tastes... Restaurant has a varied menu and can be very busy at times... Popular place to eat out...

Room Tip: Third floor was good for me

While walking the streets of Turku, I passed this small restaurant where they had a guitar player playing Jazz like music. Once I was in the atmosphere was great and the food was nice... Great place to wind down.

Very nice service at the hotel. I was granted to use the hotels facilities (gym and sauna) several hours after check out which was excellent since I had a late flight out of Turku.

Hotel is also centrally located in Turku which is a plus.
