Yes this hotel is just 20 minutes away from the city centre and 5 minutes away from the market near the port. Yes it is very clean and well kept. But it is also very 'basic' too; the rooms are simple: a bed, a chair, a tv, a coffeemaker, a fridge and a desk. I may sound a bit harsh... More

I had the misfortune of booking this hotel through an expedia secret deal, so I had no choice! The hotel building is an ex warehouse so is massive but quantity doesn't match quality. 1) there is an underlying smell of sewage, I was on floor 2 and smelt it all night. 2) the bed positioning was ridiculous, with a table...

A one of a kind Pond Hockey trip to discover the ice hockey culture in Finland brought my group "Hockeytutorial" and I to Helsinki. I decided to book our 3 day trip accommodation at the Scandic Grand Marina hotel after having read the great reviews on Tripadvisor. Safe to say they were accurate! The hotel was immaculate and well decorated,... More

We have visited this hotel often during holidays because of its location next to harbour. It can be used as a base camp when travelling Estonia or Stockholm by ferry. Hotel itself is getting little old and it definitely requires face lifting. However, rooms are rather spacious and relatively well equipped. Hotel also has very good fitness room. During our... More

Scandic says it's a "seaside" hotel!!! It's actually a dockside hotel! However, don't be put off, as this is one of the best of the group! Only 10mins into the city! Parking prices a bit steep, but you are paying for a view of the ferries!

We booked a triple room last minute. It was clean and very comfortable although a little on the small side. There was excellent wifi signal. The restaurant was one of the more reasonably priced places to eat in the area and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was one of the best Ive ever had and kept... More

Stayed at this hotel just for one night in March 2014. It is an easy stroll into the city centre, lovely buildings and monuments on route. We arrived at the train station and walked round to this hotel with cases, we did stop and look at buildings and the love bridge, it took about 20-25 minutes not walking very fast.... More

I stopped here for 1 night over weekend. Great central location just in a 5-minute walk from the City Hall and the President's Palace with a great view. Historical building with a large parking outside. Rooms are cosy, but clean, soundproof, with free Wi-Fi and included breakfast. On the 2nd floor I had no problems with Wi-Fi mentioned by other...

I was there in Feb on my way back home after a Baltic trip. I choose this one mainly because it is very close to ferry terminal (I arrived from Tallinn by Viking line). Location is quite good, very close to Uspenski Cathedral, while Helsinki Cathedral, pier (to Suomenlinna) are well within walking distance. Tram stop is not far away... More

I was able to get a great rate and I can say I was extremely pleased with this hotel. The hotel is conveniently located one block from the Number 4 light rail line which you can catch near the central railway station, right across the street from a cruise ship terminal and a mere fifteen minute walk to downtown.
