How to find us
There is a direct bus from Helsinki airport to Turku bus station - but no trains. The bus leaves from platform 14 outside the abroad arrivals terminal 2 and then picks up people also from busstop 4 outside the domestic arrivals. Check the timetable from www.matkahuolto.fi (From: Helsinki-Vantaa, To: Turku)
From Turku airport take bus number 1 to the bus stop in front of the bus station. Then walk ahead to the next traffic lights (=50 meters), turn right and that's our Tuureporinkatu. We are located at the next crossing about 150 meters away.
From the harbour take also bus number 1 but this time to the market square. From there across the square and up the street passing by cinema is a 500 meters walk to us.
Trains leave from Helsinki city centre every hour on the hour (...1200, 1300, 1400, ...). The journey takes two hours. From the station to us is a 800 meters walk.

This cruise is so popular that it's better to make a reservation already before coming to Turku.
Hidden gems for budget travellers - like ourselves...
Dragon Palace (Chinese), Dennis (Italian with fresh pasta), Sikhar (Nepalese), Pikku Torre (a pub with good food, giant screnes with sports channels).
If you are looking for traditional Finnish food then Turku is not the correct place. What you'll find is not worth of the price asked for it.
But there is a Viking restaurant called Harald, where you'll have a unique atmosphere and wildlife food. You'll also find fish buffet in Vaakahuone next to the river. It is very good and reasonably priced!
We like you to feel like home!
