Stayed at Hotel Palo for 11 nights whilst working in Naantali and really enjoyed my time there. My room was on top floor and spacious with two comfortable single beds, flat screen TV and large wardrobe. No tea or coffee making facilities in room but there was on the landing outside the rooms along with microwave and fridge. The bathroom was also spacious with shower and included shower gel & shampoo. Jouni, the owner, could not have been more friendly and helpful and catered for all our needs. This included preparing an early breakfast at 6.00am as I had to leave the hotel at 6.30am. Breakfast was good quality with fruit juices, tea, coffee, cereals, porridge, warm bread rolls, sliced bread, croissants, and a selection of hams & cheeses. Jouni was also prepared to cook a hot breakfast of bacon, sausage & eggs but to be honest I didn't take him up on his offer as I enjoyed the standard breakfast. Wi fi wasn't any good in the room but again Jouni came to my rescue and gave me a key to the reception / breakfast room where wi fi was excellent and allowed me to email my reports etc. Jouni is arranging to improve the wi if throughout the hotel.
Hotel Palo is an old wooden building steeped in character and I have seen negative reviews relating to noisy/ creeking floor boards. Yes they do creek and the doors squeak when opened/ closed and this all adds to the character of the building. None of the noise issues reported in other reviews negatively affected my stay in any way. I would definitely stay at Hotel Palo in future when ever in the Turku region.
