It looked like the best hotel in town

Posted Oct 21, 2016
Location: Walk distance to the cathedral, shopping and some museums. Like a mile walk to the mideval castle which was very interesting.
Hotel is by te river. Very nice view. There is a river walkway we enjoyed very much on a sunny day. There are restaurants near by. The room was comfortable. Breakfast buffet was just ok.

Lovely hotel, 5 minute walk from town centre

Posted Dec 21, 2015
If Turku is your location, this needs to be your hotel. It's the perfect location, close to the town centre but quiet and a lovely view of the river. The rooms are tidy and spacious. Would definitely stay here again!

Pros: Location, staff and interior design!
Cons: Although we didn't have dinner, the restaurant menu and name (grill it) didn't seem to match the hotel interior and ambience.
Location: Easy to walk to restaurants, bars, cafes, museums and galleries.
Friendly and helpful staff. We were happy after being given access to our hotel room well before check in time. Great location.

Very nice hotel on the river

Posted May 5, 2015
Stayed 3 nights, one of which was Vappu, therefore the hotel was quite busy. However, apart from the restaurant being full on the first night, you would not have noticed! The staff were very friendly, and there was enough good quality food at breakfast time (hot and cold) to feed an army. There is free bike hire, which was very handy for exploring the city. Would definitely stay there again.

A quality hotel in the centre of Turku

Posted Feb 2, 2015
Pros: Very helpful staff and a nice, comfortable room.
Cons: Breakfast quality
I stayed at the Radisson Blu Marina Palace Hotel in Turku for a few days in January; the hotel is situated near the centre of this small town. My single room was modern, spacious and attractive. It was well furnished and boasted a comfortable bed. If you like seeing yourself in the mirror, then this is the room for you; mirrors everywhere. In addition, the room had a safe and, more importantly, coffee/tea facilities. A modern ‘smart’ television was also available but surprisingly there was only a single English-speaking channel, which is disappointing for a Hotel that is liked to be recognised as International. The bathroom was also modern and comfortable with quality toiletries available; the shower was excellent but there was no bath tub. Personally, this did not bother me at all. Breakfast comprised a reasonable choice of cold and hot items. However, all items I tried were bland and the drinks, coffee and juices, very weak for my taste. There is certainly plenty of room for improvement, unless local tastes are much different to mine. The hotel was maintained at a high level of cleanliness. The staff was invariably knowledgeable, courteous and helpful.

Christmas Eve in Turku

Posted Jan 19, 2015
Pros: located on Aura River and a 5 minute walk to the Old Great Square (for the Christmas Peace in December or the Medieval Market in June)
Location: Aura River, Old Great Square, Turku Cathedral, Christmas Peace, Medieval Market
This hotel sits alongside the Aura River and has nice views of the river from the restaurant/bar and from select rooms. Our room was clean and comfortable. Staff were courteous. Be aware that on Christmas Eve, the hotel's restaurant is closed and room service is unavailable. This is a problem because you must now seek out an open restaurant somewhere in Turku. (There are a few open.) To be fair to the Radisson, most restaurants in Turku were closed so the Radisson was not alone in this.

Great location

Posted Dec 29, 2014
Location: Near centre but still quiet
Great location on the river bank...worth the bit extra for a room with a river view. Some neat features like wide choice of pillows. Breakfast was extensive...even two different kinds of porridge, though some previously frozen items needed more thawing. Hotel shows its age in not having all facilities of now top line hotel but that is reflected in the price and how they try to make up for it...long breakfast hours and late check out, christmas cakes at breakfast much appreciated
