I've been here before on a business trip and this time we chose this hotel, because it was near Kauppatori(Main Market Square) harbour and Finnair Ferris Wheel where we had tickets. Scandic hotels usual keep their good standards and this time too room was clean with good air conditioning and FREE Wifi. Last time they had great breakfast, but unfortunately... More

This supposedly upscale hotel is located across from a convention center and near the Viking Lines terminal in an otherwise quiet neighborhood on a peninsula about a ten-minute walk from the harbor and Market Square or 15-to-20 minutes from downtown Helsinki. It is a large, long, 7-story hotel, apparently converted from some old warehouse. The location is relatively convenient. A... More

Stayed here for a week during a conference at the venue across the street, and I liked it. The single room was small, but adequate, and there was a nice view of the ships from my window. Others in the same hotel reported different windows and views, but mine was very nice. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom had all... More

We stayed here one night on our way back home. It was more adequate. It has free wifi, and the hotel was once a warehouse so it is interesting and unique in some ways. It is within walking distance to an outdoor market. This was nice to walk around. There are restaurants within walking distance and a very nice park.... More

The location of the hotel was nice and the staff friendly but otherwise the hotel and the hotel room were only mediocre. The hotel was clearly over-booked: you would need to queue for everything and the hotel breakfast was a disaster. The were not enough tables for breakfast guests and so it took about 20 min just to find an... More

Grand building and foyer, friendly staff, free wifi and printing access. Short walk to the city centre, a block from the harbour craft and food market. Breakfast buffet included was incredible, with an extensive buffet of cooked and continental foods served in two large well-appointed dining rooms. Rooms small but quiet and satisfactory. Would recommend to friends and for business.

By virtue of its location near the ferries, this hotel caters to groups. Desk personnel were friendly and helpful. The room, however, was very small, and the bathroom had one particularly awkward feature: the sink was at one end of the long counter, and the soap dispenser at the opposite end, meaning that you were likely to dribble soap on...

The rooms were very clean and I had a good sleep every night of the trip. I felt very safe in this hotel which is always a good feeling when... More

I stayed at the Grand Marina 3 nights for business. I usually come to Helsinki twice a year and stayed at different hotels before, never at this one. It is located close to the harbour, about 15 min walk to the shopping area. After checking reviews on tripadvisor I expected something different. We got a pretty good rate but for... More
