Great hotel
fantastic breakfast, ideal location
Scandic hotel is a lovely hotel, with ideal location, as it is only a walking distance from the town center. The hotel service is great and the breakfast is superb, with a selection of healthy stuff. The only thing we didn't like is that we were promoted to a better room but unfortunately a smoking room. it appears that the good rooms in this hotel belong to smokers.

Great breakfast and a convenient location!
Good breakfasts, sauna, swimming pool and easy to get around
nicely located; you can catch a finnair bus to the airport just opposite the hotel, or a tram every 5 minutes into the city centre. breakfasts were great, as were the sauna and swimming pool. i stayed there twice - the first room was facing a courtyard, so very quiet - the second was facing the street, so a bit noisy. i went away for a few days and left my luggage with them - no problem!

Good location on easy transport routes
Breakfast, sauna, swimming pool
The hotel was much older and bigger than I had anticipated (the biggest in Helsinki with 560 rooms). Room was clean and quite large. Breakfast was amazing and the sauna and swimming pool were great!

Great Location to go to airport
Just across the street, you can reach airport bus stop and tram stop nearby.
Staff without smile but helpful. Elevators are at the middle of the building with 2 wings so it will be better to stay not far from elevator. Otherwise, you have to have long walk to your room.

Average hotel, good location
Walking distance to centre, lake across the road.
As this was my first time in Finland, and just one night stay,

Good location but old
Park and tram stops just across the street
Good location, but expensive and too old. Breakfast was mediocre. The only positive about this hotel is its location. That's it.

Nice Hotel, Nice People
Very good service, nice staffs, food is good.
the elevator reading system of the room card didn't work that well. Most people would have to try at least three times before it could work.
It is a very nice hotel, close to the center of the city. People there are very friendly and professional. Services are very good. I also enjoy the food there. Only one suggestion is that if the elevator reading system of the room card could be more efficient then I guess more people would appreciate this convenience.
