The Scandic Paasi is well located for those that want to be within a sensible distance of the action in Helsinki, but at the same time want to ensure a peaceful stay in the city. Situated in Hakaniemi, just off the main drag, the Paasi is close to transport links including trams, the metro line and a number of buses... More

What more do you need than friendly efficient staff who cannot help you enough. Great comfortable rooms with everything you need already included such as iron and board. Brilliant large selection at breakfast with big comfortable room. Very reasonable room rates. This will be my hotel of choice whilst visiting helsinki.

We spent the New Year´s Eve at Scandic Paasi with my husband 31.12.13-1.1.14 and truly enjoyed our stay. This place is not a typical scandinavian style hotel with the harmonic brown, grey and white -decoration. Paasi is a story-hotel with strong colors and circus-theme. We had a Superior plus room with the spectacular-theme which means there was a nice luxury-flavor... More

This is a very nice, relatively new hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff, great location close to the center city and to all transportation modes. (Hakaniemi, which is a stop on the airport bus, the metro, and many bus and tram lines, is a block away.) Outstanding buffet breakfast. The hotel is very much a modern design hotel, and I... More

Overall the hotel service and staff did a good job, but the hotel decor was to odd, black leather decorations a boxing bouncing ball in the hotel room and red hart shaped bed pillows. I do not recommend this hotel for business travelers, but couples and families might find it okay.

As a story-hotel we have three different interier design themes at Scandic Paasi for our guests to choose from.
