Ruissalo Spa Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel room was surprisingly nice and not too much noise. A bit tired decor, but clean and comfortable. The meeting room was another story: it was freezing cold and the after we asked the personnel to do something about it, nothing happened. The promised maintenance personnel never arrived. There was some kind of activities arranged for children outside the meeting room and there was so much noise from the screaming children in the corridor that we could not hear each other talking. Meeting room technology was not uptodate.

My in laws are staying at the spa right now and I joined them for breakfast - a pleasant experience Finnish hotel breakfasts are usually buffet style and while you won’t get a “full English” there is invariably a great selection of cereals, a range of cold cuts and salads for a continental breakfast and a few warm dishes -including eggs. What made the breakfast at Ruissalo Spa a cut above normal was firstly the lovely way the food was displayed and secondly their nice touch of offering pancakes with fresh maple syrup. Yummy. There was also fresh fruit and tasty fruit salad! The dining room is spacious with nice views, and plenty of staff around to help -clearing used dishes and replenishing the buffet as required. The coffee was a bit of a disappointment, and well below usual Finnish standards. And the juice (dispensed from a machine) wasn’t the best either (made from concentrate) a pity as the food was excellent!

A little drive from center but nice due to cozy spa and seashore nature. The rounded-shaped main pool inspired longer swimming than in normal small hotel pools where you have to turn back every 10 meters. The room was for some reason all too warm and I did not find means to adjust the temperature. Lots of elderly guests enjoying rehabilitation - better than screaming kids :) !

Ruissalo is an island and city area of Turku in Finland, though the villas and houses are mostly under historical protection. Ruissalo also has one of the largest oak tree forests in Finland with many nature trails, The Ruissalo Spa Hotel is located at the southern tip of the 7km long island and offers good sized, comfortable rooms and a friendly atmosphere. This is a perfect place to spend a long summer evening sitting on the outdoor patio with a cold drink. The spa has several saunas, 3 pools and year-round access to the sea. The hotel is a perfect place for a relaxing weekend.

This hotel is about 10 km away from the centre of Turku so a car or some form of motor transport is needed to get there. The hotel is located near the water and is surrounded by forest. The rooms are small and but are quite well equipped. The bathroom is OK, but the air-condtioing only really heats and the controller does not really control anything, Breakfast was fine, with a wide range of choices and the food was fresh and replaced as required. I would not like to stay in the hotel for a long time because of its location but it was nice for relaxing and the pools and sauna seems very popular. A good place to relax.

Situated on an island some 10 km from the city centre this hotel is quiet - middle aged and elderly guests at the time of our visit - and good for relaxation. The receptionist was very friendly both at check-in and check-out. The room was comfortable and clean with a view to the archipelago. Breakfast was good; dinner average. The spa area has a couple of pools + jacuzzi + sauna. There is also a possibility to take a dip inte sea; now in a hole in the ice. We had a relaxing, albeit short stay at the hotel.

Location is very nice in the middle of a beautiful nature and there is sea view from hotel and you can swim in the sea also at winter.Spa had many different kind of alternatives. I tried relaxing massage for legs and it was very nice indeed.

No buzy time,peaceful at spa and all over. Now view to woods/parking area, and stantard room 2person. Bath ok, heat room and noisy battery ;( Helpful staff. Breakfast okey, various and no buzy, Y can enjoy morning start.

For a complete change of routine and location we chose to stay at the Ruissalo Spa Hotel for Christmas. The location is quite and remote and ideal for some peace and quiet, quality sleep, nourishing and plentiful food and all the expected Spa Hotel facilities. For those seeking the same this has to be an ideal venue. For those who do not drive a number 8 bus - fare 3€ - from Turku City Centre (that also calls at the railway station) drops passengers within just a few steps to the front door. The reception is welcoming but the rooms are quite basic with few 'luxury' amenities. We did not have a mini-bar or security safety deposit box for example and during the period of our stay there as no room-service whatsoever. But the gym and swimming pool were well kept although there was no drinking water available within the gym. We could not fault the food but would warn guests that over indulgence in Koti-Kalja, a traditional refreshment served at lunch, dinner and buffet tables can possibly have an unwelcome gaseous effect. I should also mention the staff who were ever present to maintain the tables and keep the food flowing to the masses of guests at this festive period. They could not have had any time to celebrate their own Christmas so our appreciation goes to them for the services they performed.

Helpful people behind the front desk. Some of them speak good English. Has the amenities one may need for a short visit to the area. Not 5 star facility but adequate for the price. Away from the city centre but perfect if you are driving.
