The room was newly renovated and nice. Clean. Stayed at the 6th floor with my window to the river and I could not hear anything from the street. Very silent. The personnel was very nice and there were more personnel in the morning at check out so it went quick and smoothly. Will stay at this hotel next time too!

Friendly staff, very helpful after my flight was cancelled - ensured I didn't have to change rooms. Excellent location and in-building parking brilliant for convenience. Nice modern rooms. Central location in Turku ensured I had access to good food and shops on the doorstep.

I thought that especially the breakfast was great, one could choose among fruit, porridge, tasty bread, warm meat dishes and typical Finish breakfast. The rooms are very quiet and clean. the staff is very welcoming. The location is excellent, right in the city center.

The hotel is located close to main shopping and restaurant areas in the centre. Rooms were normal Scandic standard, i.e pretty ok. The breakfast was not very impressive with quite limited choices in terms of healthy food. The people in the reception were friendly

We stayed a night waiting for the ferry next day, with kids.

The good sides: nice location, recently renovated in a snug & modern way, friendly staff at the reception, clean and peaceful, decent sauna. The bad sides (and here are the reasons why only three stars): We had a family room for four people, which was probably the smallest family room we've ever had. For one night, it was manageable, but...

We took a family weekend in Turku and choose to stay in Scandic Julia because of they had real familyrooms.
