Radisson Blu Marina Palace Hotel, Turku4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
7th floor room with absolutely stunning riverside view. Lights were so beautiful while snow flakes playing above the Aura River. Location is just perfect cause it's only 5 minute walk to the city centre.
Just a 13 minute walk from the train station and looking out onto the Aura river. I was given a recently renovated room, which was nicely spacious. The bathroom space was well appointed also. Only drawback the shower on/off handle - difficult to manage with wrt/soapy hands. Was a little disappointed that the amenities were not refilled for the second night- no delicious hot chocolate! The breakfast buffet was ample, with a fresh eggs counter and the best crispy bacon ever. Nice walking/jogging possibilities along the riverside right outside the hotel. I walked everywhere in Turku to see the sights, especially also the awesome new public library.
I have made business trips to Turku for almost 30 years now. Maybe just once a year but that makes dozens of trips, and hotel nights. For some reason I almost every time select this hotel. During the decades it's been owned by different companies, now a Radisson SAS. This time again, I thought afterwards what's the lure. The room was alright but nothing special in it and feels its age here and there. Though still tidy. Bed was OK. However always overall feeling has been the same - everything works and it doesn't dissapoint your expectations. Location is good by the Aura river and service friendly and efficent. Had a good sleep and with a breakfast that was of very good quality (and complimentary which is the norm in Finland), had an excellent start for my new day in Turku. The hotel has got an Old School charm of the 80's grand new business hotels, but it is still going strong.
What can I say, some of the best hospitality I've encountered anywhere. Staff were friendly, professional, accommodating, knowledgeable & went above & beyond to help me in every way. The food at the breakfast buffet was local & fresh. Can't wait to return.
One time it was a modern hotel but now rooms need to be refurbished, it is very clean, service is very good, facilities like sauna or gym are good, restaurant is very good but very pricy do let's hope radisson management decides to refurb this property
Located above lobby floor. Conference hotel style space. Friendly and welcoming service. Enough variety in buffet breakfast. Fresh ingredients and good bakings. Good and convenient place for a late weekend breakfast.
We have stayed here several times during the past 10 years. This is not the prettiest building from the outside, but inside it's comfortable and the location by the Aurajoki-river is great. The hotel is in the process of renovating all their rooms, so far rooms at the 4th floor have been renovated. Also the lobby and the breakfast room have received a 'face lift'. If you want to enjoy nice views, it's best to pay extra and chose a room with the river view. The service was friendly, both at the reseption as well as at the breakfast. The only negative thing is that the room doors don't keep all the noise from the corridor. So, if the hotel is full and you are a light sleeper, it's best to take earplugs with you.
This hotel has a very good location. It´s a walking distance to Turku city centre, just a couple of minutes. We had asked for a hotel room with a view to the river and we got it. The room was nice and big with a cozy bed. There was also a bath tub which was a bit worn out. The breakfast was very good. The breakfast area was nice and the assortment was versatile. There is also a restaurant n the hotel but we didn´t try it. We enjoyed our stay. The parking was quite expensive though, over 20 euros for under 24 hours...
The hotel is on a good location, the river side rooms very quiet and with a nice view. Somewhat outdated at parts, but renovations seemed to be ongoing in January 2017 when we visited. Nothing really to complain, also the price at the time was reasonable. Good service and nice breakfast with large selection.
Our family stayed here to discover Turku during winter time. Reception was very warm and fast and we aksed reception lady for info and got very good infromation and recommendation, what to do and what to see. Hotel is in the middle of best tourist attractions and very close to city center. Thank you! Breakfast was great.
