Scandic Julia is situated just one block away from the market place in the middle of Turku. The standard room was quite spacious and the beds were good. The interior design is modern Scandinavian style with wooden floor and white walls. The breakfast was very good and there is enough tables in the restaurant so you don't need to queue... More

Excellent location by the bridge and friendly service but my room had a quite bleak view overlooking some rooftop and a door of the neighbouring building. The room itself was tidy and comfy. Nice breakfast except for the funny tasting Swedish coffee.

The room is comfortable and clean. The sauna is fantastic the gym is adequate. The service friendly and efficient. Would be better if you could access the gym for more times as jet lag prevents sleep. Good location in the center of town.

I have bad experiments from my earlier visits in this hotel. Rooms are nice and quiet, but once I stayed in this hotel, on the breakfast there were offered grated carrot, that was spoiled. Well, these things may happen, but actually I was a bit disappointed, how my reclamation was handled. That is what really matters to me. But in... More

Doesn't look like much from the outside or even the lobby, but our room was very nice and the breakfast was very good. Location was convenient for walking to visit the few things we had time to do in our short time in Turku.

Everything works splendidly. Outside the hotel looks a little bit old fashioned but the rooms are clean, breakfast is more than fresh and tasty. I would recommend definitely this hotel if your are staying in Turku! If one issue should be improved it would be the selection of pillows.

Stayed for 5 nights at the Scandic Julia with a nightly arrival on the first night. Service was good. Staff was friendly and all very articulate in English. Absolute downside was that the hotel did not have its own parking, so we had to use the commercial Q-Park garage. Cost for parking your car in there overnight was €20,-... Later... More
