Warm-hearted, full-service boutique hotel in Turku
Park Hotel is a unique hotel in the heart of Turku, right next to the lush Puolalanpuisto park. We are the first boutique hotel in Turku and differ – to our advantage – from the rest of the hotel offering in the city with our personal milieu and warm, cosy atmosphere. Our charming Art Nouveau house was built as early as 1902, commissioned by the English-born John Edward Eager who worked as head of the Crichton shipbuilding company. The house was privately owned until 1956 and then acquired by the Martha Organization that transformed it to become their renowned home economics school until 1982. That year the building changed owners once more, and following a complete overhaul, Park Hotel began operations in 1984.
Family business since 1991
The current timeline for Park Hotel runs from 1991, which is when the present owners, Eva and Zbigniew Dziedzic together with their son Saul Paavola, started running the Park Hotel business. After over 30 years of operation, we have developed our hotel into a hospitable and warm boutique hotel known for its first-rate service and a place where our repeat customers eagerly book a room and return year after year. We have endeavoured to make Park Hotel a place where everyone – from people travelling for business to families with children, meeting participants, and wedding partygoers – can feel welcome. We’re your home away from home.
The hotel’s foundation lies on the cheery and customer-oriented staff
Our wonderful staff, dedicated to serving our customers, forms the backbone of our hotel. They assist our guests in absolutely everything, guiding them with available sights, making reservations to restaurants, calling for taxis, arranging meeting rooms, telling them about the city, and so on. With us, you can count on having our staff cater to your needs.
Legendary parrot Jaakko
You cannot really talk about Park Hotel without mentioning Jaakko. The beloved parrot Jaakko spent almost 30 years making our hotel guests happy, entertaining and surprising them, by greeting them as they stepped in and walked to the reception. Jaakko passed away in December 2018, but the roguish feathered friend lives on in our hearts.
