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!

Location is great and staff were friendly. Fastest elevator I have ever ridden in. The doors barely close before you arrive at your floor. 5 floors in as many seconds? Wow.
The room was recently renovated but the new wall tapestries were pealing off the walls and there were small red stains on the carpet and bedsheets. The breakfast was not as good as in other Scandic...

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.

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.

Advertised car park but it cost nearly thirty euros to park my car in hotel as park overnight. Felt ripped off as car park was one of the reasons for choosing this hotel

Beautiful hotel to stay, good...
Location is ok, not far from city walking street, and easy to take airport bus. The room is beautifully decorated. Unfortunately, we left very early, so did not try breakfast.
We check in early, so there is an additional charge of a couple hundreds. If that is a common rule for every hotel, we can accept it. But some hotels allow us to check in if they have a room ...

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.

Everything, its the kind of place that is modern, stylish and comfortable all in one. Very well priced, great breakfast and friendly staff. Honestly I have never been to a better big hotel ...
The only thing i could say is the plates were not heated and your hot breakfast goes cold very quickly. I feel shamed to say that though cause the whole stay was perfect.
