While visiting Helsinki we usually stay at Grand Marina. The hotel is located at Katajanokka, near Kauppatori, and is in easy walking distance from the main streets. The location is one of the main reasons for our staying here, but also the friendly service and nice atmosphere are a big plus. The rooms are very quiet and big enough, could... More

We stayed here in sept 2014 for 2 nights. Close to down town and to the ferry docks. Excellent breakfast. And very secure parking. 15 euro for outside and 25 for underground. They also have 2 sets of washer/dryers. Big rooms and clean. Enjoy our stay here.

Very disappointing from many perspectives. First experience on walking in the door was a huge line up of people checking in and only two people on reception. This lack of service continued throughout our 6 night stay whenever we needed to see reception. There is no assistance with luggage at all, you struggle yourself. We booked an Superior Plus Room,...

Had to come in day early and chose to stay here. Big hotel type of feel- they have close to 500 rooms. well run, huge breakfast included. Condition seemed good- and I am fairly picky. Only issue is it is about 5-10 minute walk into the city center( it is on water area- very close to market). As long as... More

I booked a superior room & when I checked in I got a room with an extremely small window & the furniture was worn out. On complaining & threatening to move out I was upgraded to a superior plus room, but even though the room was bigger with more windows, the furniture is still run down, it needs a very... More

Just in front of the ferry dock (Viking from Tallinn) and a block from the tram, the hotel is walking distance from city center, the market and many restaurants. Very large and quite full - it was a little busy at reception. Excellent breakfast buffet.

This was my third visit to Helsinki and my favorite hotel of the 3. Not only does it overlook the water, but the neighborhood is lovely and quiet.. Sevice is good and the room is a decent size as is the bathroom. The window is not very big and there is not alot of storage room, but since we were... More

Big hotel with very drab decor - what were they thinking? This hotel is the definition of beige! The hallways are unbelievably and unrelieveadly drab beige. Lifts were dirty. Restaurant and rooms were clean. Food fair to good. A major plus for long haul travelers is that unusually for Europe this hotel has a guest laundry. The downside is that... More
