Located in the main lobby, our reception is the heart of our hotel and we try to serve our guests in every way; printed tickets, room reservations, public transportation timetables, luggage storage, a button sewn on, a borrowed hair dryer or even a sticking plaster.

Cards and stamps, detergent and other items are also sold at reception. There are also maps, brochures about Turku and information about local events.

We are very grateful for your feedback. We hope that your experience at Linnasmäki is a complete success, but sometimes a problem comes up and we ask that you contact reception as soon as possible so we can resolve it.


There is plenty of free parking space available on our alight and camera monitored parking area. There’s also space for two buses.

We have a few power points for heating up the car during cooler weather. Ask more from our reception!

There are also 10 EV charging stations (type 2, 22 kW). Charging stations work with RFID-tags, which are available at our reception. Charging is paid. Please ask the rates from our reception.


For a small fee, the sauna and swimming pool at Linnasmäki are available for our guests. There are two saunas, a small and large one, with a 12-metre pool in between them (1.3 metres deep and about 25°C). A bathing suit must always be worn in the pool.

In the summer and during other busy periods separate sauna times for men and women are posted on the sauna doors and at reception. At other times sauna reservations can be made at reception.


We offer our guests free Wi-Fi, which works in all our buildings and rooms. Signal strength may vary depending on the location of the room, but is generally very good in the lobby.
