Best Western Hotel Seaport3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Fulfill normal requirements. Location exceptional. Mainly peaceful environment. Car parking in front or long term parking 100 m away. Reception officers are friendly and the service works in every way. Breakfast is varied and I have sometimes arrived to Turku skipping the breakfast on boat and come to have breakfast at the Best Western. In the evening both al'a Carte and bar operate well.
Had a stay in this hotel for a business trip arranged by my company. Very nice, old looking building, and perfectly remade for hotel purposes. The personnel on the reception was very friendly and polite. The room was very clean and big enough. Although the renovation was not quite fresh but it was quite comfortable. The only thing I didn’t like is the wooden floor (so better to have some slippers with you - they don’t provide). The minibar in the room has a good choice of different wines. But watch out for the prices, it’s Finland! Breakfast was basic, good and tasty, like in good 3 stars or in bad four stars :) There’s of course sauna there but I didn’t visit it. The bus no. 1 stops right outside the hotel and goes straight to the airport passing center of the town. By walk to the center it’s about 25 minutes. So that was a good choice for short business trip in Turku.
You see some periodical rush hours depending on the schedules of the ships leaving and arriving to Turku harbor. Not too cozy as a bar but it's conveniently close to them sailing bars. Haven't spent a night here as it is not actually the point of my trips. Should be good enough if you are not living in Southern Finland where you get by the train leaving just 100 m from the door OR not going to the cruise ship.
Pros: - Good location: just a few minutes walk from Turku Castle and about 20min walk, by the river, to downtown. - Great breakfast with traditional meatballs, finnish rice porridge, rice toasts... Quality & variety of food, both warm and cold. - Playing area for kids & amusement zone for adults (snooker, slot machines...). - The building is an old fish market. - Free private parking. - Kettle & Free coffee/tea. Cons: - A bit noisy. - Cleaning is poor, a lot of dust. - No elevator so you'll have to carry your luggage upstairs. - Rooms are tiny and low ceilings, so if you're tall you may suffer one or two encounters with the ceiling. - Bathroom has to be updated asap. In general this hotel is a good option: not expensive and, although it can improve much, it gives good quality/service.
This is right next to the Silja Ferry dock, if you get there early, this is a handy place to sip a pint, have a meal or if you are like me, get out of the rain! The food was pretty good (I had crayfish on a toasted piece of bread, As a cajun food enthusiast, it was good, the mudbugs were pretty big (already peeled) and tasty, not very spicy though.
We had a nice stay here and the room was quiet and with good space. The floor in the bathroom was wet when we arrived. When we wanted to send postcards the staff was very welcoming and helped us. The breakfast was tasty and good.
Right next to the harbor hotel! Clean rooms, good breakfast and big parking area. Bus left just near to hotel so you can drive city center easy. The hotel is not cheap so you can also go on an evening boat and be in the morning in Stockholm.
I stayed there on 12 May 2017. I chose this hotel mainly for its location, which is next to the Viking Line Terminal and the Line No.1 bus stop to the Market Square. It's also a 5-minute walk to the Turku Castle, which is the best museum I visited in Finland. The area outside the hotel was generally quiet, except when a cruise arrived at the cruise terminal. I dunno if there is lift in the hotel, but the staff just told me to use the main staircase. I found it rather inconvenient since I carried a suitcase. My room was on the 2nd floor with small windows overseeing the Viking Cruise Terminal. There is a lobby with sofas and a snooker bench in front of the corridor to the rooms. I could hear people talking loudly there when I was inside my room. The keys were punched cards. I've never used this kind of keys before. The room was very basic. All the furnishings needed renovation. It gave me an impression of those simple guesthouses of the communist countries in the 1970s. The breakfast was simple with not much choices while the breakfast area was also quite crowded at about 8-9 am. I would recommend this hotel for its location if you arrive late in the evening by Viking Line's cruise.
Hotel is Turku harbour so its easy for peoples who wanna go ferries or arrivals evening Turku with boat. Hotel is not City trip hotel coz is away city center ab 2km and one of only ones where is still smoking rooms
I can only echo the views of the previous reviewers. Very quiet hotel,helpful reception staff. We ate at the hotel in the evening - lovely chicken salad and my partner had meatballs. Both very well cooked/prepared.Breakfast was tasty and able to be eaten at a leisurely pace as the ferry terminal was no more than one minute away on foot.
