Very close to the marina, so if you alson travel to Tallinn, for example, like we did, the location is perfect. Only 10 min walk to city center. Tallinn, is very nice to visit as well!

If you take this hotel, you should check where is the harbor in advance. If you find the harbor, you can find the hotel easily.

        Surprised positively”
        This is one of the first times ever I stayed in hotel in Helsinki. Didn't expect too much but was positively surprised. Staff were super helpful, room nice (although a bit cold; we got heater from reception and issue was solved). Breakfast was excellent. Gym had nice amount of equipment. During second night sound isolation between the rooms was leaking as room next door was a private sauna suite and there seemed to be a party. View to the sea was pretty given the time of the year. Location is reasonably handy with market square in short walking distance.

        Breakfast problems”
        I have stayed at Grand Marina several times over the years, but the appeal starts fading away with the poor breakfast arrangements. First of all, the breakfast is not really that great and important items (such as gravlax (salmon)) are missing. But the biggest problem is that they don't seem to cope with the number of clients and the limited capacity of the breakfast room. It is difficult to find a free table (sometimes I had to go away and come back later) and the queues really make the experience unpleasant. They constantly run out of items (at least the most popular ones) - they fill up, but not immediately - and when the refill comes, there is a queue again. But all in all, it is still decent value for money, and there are positives as well. For example: my room was very cold, and when I mentioned that, in no time there was an extra heater in my room.

        Pleasant stay in busy hotel”
        Hotel is just off the busy harbour area and close to tram stop(4/5)Easy to access main railway & onwards to airport.. Rooms are clean and bed comfortable. Breakfast busy but plenty of choice .reception staff friendly & helpful. When we arrived late 1015pm it was bustling with kids & adults(not what a weary traveller wanted). We thought the food menu was pricey (maybe Helsinki is pricey). Overall a good place for a stopover in Helsinki .

        Hotel near the Ferry”
        Breakfast buffet, proximity to public transportation, and easy check out
        The hotel was nice. It is a little bit of travel time from the Central Rail Station but is very close to the ferry terminals. The breakfast was good but very very crowded. I didnt like that the bed was two twins side by side, they kept sliding apart when I tried to sleep. The staff was friendly for the most part.

        Close to city, close to Viking line ferries, quiet
        This is a very big hotel with lots of guests yet it is quiet and provides all that makes a stay pleasant. Is a nice walk along the wharf area into town and to the waterfront where you can catch boat tours, go to restaurants and browse the open markets. Was 200m from the Viking line ferry terminal which made my ongoing travel to Sweden very easy. Overall a great place to stay in downtown Helsinki.

        A female receptionist was very rude when I asked for help because my room card was inactive. There is no kettle in the room then I could not have hot water. I asked for picking me up at the airport but no response. I booked one single bed room but there was two single beds then they took space.

        Good value”
        staff, cleanliness, location
        After I made my reservations, I had doubts about the location and distance from the train station. However on arrival, it was an easy 20 minute walk at most. Just head southeast from the station, on any street, and when you come to the esplanade turn left and follow the road. Actually quite easy. Or take #4 tram. Staff was attentive and good. Hotel is clean and well maintained. Because lots of tours stay here breakfast gets chaotic, and once locating a table, it was hard to keep it when I would want a refill. For a single traveler, this is a serious inconvenience. There are a number of OK restaurants in the area. The highly rated ones usually are closed for holiday during the summer though. A ferry trip to Tallinn is a good day's expedition. Take a 7:30 ferry over and plan for the 4:30 return unless you go overnight. Beware that there are at least 3 ferry terminals so be sure you know which one you need. Although it looked problematic, the west terminal was an easy 2 tram trip from the hotel. Tallinn is pretty, with excellent food and very reasonably priced compared to anywhere in Scandinavia.

        really lovely place to stay? it is situated very close to the ferry terminals. this is especially true for the viking line. however we had to travel by taxi to get to the tallink ferry terminal as it was in another bay of the harbour. it was still nice to be somewhere close enough to walk to shops and sights. central station is just a 10min walk, but be awhere that the streets are cobbled and would be rough on luggage wheels.

        One of the best I've stayed in in Helsinki”
        Room size was superb. Washing machine and dryer available. Good sauna. Good gym. Hairdressers on site and a shop. Quieter than some. Wireless Internet free in rooms as is ironing and a trouser press.
        No drink making facilities in the room - bit of a surprise for a 4 star. Bar was extremely expensive so never used it once.
        It would be my first choice to stay there if coming back to Helsinki but outside the hotel in the local area there is not much. The local bar and local shop are both noticeably extremely expensive - it seems to me to be everything on that island is. However, it is well connected to the main land and tram 4 serves it well. There is only a short walk to the promanade and a market is available some days.

        Very Scandanavian”
        I was a return guest to the Scandic Grand Marina becuase it is a nice hotel in a very convenient location and a very helpful staff, especially if you are baffled by the Finnish language as I am.
        The rooms are very nice but a bit spartan for the hotel's level of rating. However, that is very Scandanavian
        The hotel is located a block from the waterfront and close to many of the historical and religious sites that tourists usually take in. There are excellent shopping and a wide variety of restuarants very close also. There are always taxi's in front of the hotel and the public transit is close and direct to such places as the main railway and bus stations. A large and excellent breakfast has been included in each of my stays and I believe it is standard.

        Location
        We stayed a total of 5 nights at this hotel (4 on arrival in Finland and 1 before departure). It is a very large hotel and very busy as it caters for both conference clientele as well as the full range of tourists - groups, families and couples like us. Hotel is located close to the harbour so very convenient for return from Tallinn by ferry as well as the various ferry trips we took. Breakfast was always busy but there was plenty of food and good variety. The second room we had was better than the first, on front side of hotel so lighter. Rooms are quite basic but comfortable.
