Stayed for one night. The hotel had its time some 10-20 years ago. It's still okay but a bit outdated, both facilities and staff. Breakfast was good in typical Scandic style. Location a bit aside and nothing is open in the surrounding at evenings.

We stayed at the Scandic Grand Marina as part of our tour group to the 2016 World Junior Hockey Championship so the place was busy. The Scandic is within walking distance to all Helsinki's main attractions, market place, tram system and ferry terminal. We were always on foot and found the Scandic very central to all the sights we wanted... More

The hotel is close to the Viking line terminal, and the rate was attractive at the high price level of Finland. The choice of breakfast was sufficient, with also some yogurt and milk products designed for lactose free. A small portion of sea view was available at room. The room was a bit small, especially when I compared to the... More

I would recommend to stay in this hotel. The quality is very good, but Scandic standards. Good parking area and cost for parking on very good level for Helsinki. Close to center and seaside. Not noisy compare to center area.

Hotel building is nice and lobby too. Standard room was bit better than I expected when I saw the picture, but comparing to Scandic Park and Paasi, it was outdated. But we had a really fantastic night there so must say it was positive experience. Breakfast was good as it always is Scandic hotels in Helsinki.

Stayed as part of a group tour to world Ringette championships (and also world junior hockey). The hotel managed to handle several large tour groups at once and we had a large number of teens who were there with equipment. Hotel was reasonably clean but not spotless. The washroom soap was mounted on the far wall from the sink which... More

Typical chain hotel with nothing personal in decoration. The hotel needs some refurbishment, it has have its hay days in the past. Room was clean. The lobby ok. The staff could have been more friendly. The breakfast was 'processed food' buffet with beacons and scrambler egg - not personal at all. Location ok. The price of the room was quite... More
