Having stayed at Scandi hotels in the past (The Palace in Copenhagen) when visiting Helsinki for the first time, we decided to try one of their hotels. Very impressed. The desk staff are very knowledgable, not only of the hotels facilities but of the city in general. The twin room is very clean and well presented and very centrally situated.... More

The hotel is centrally located just 5 minutes from the main railway station. From Scandic I would expect a bit better design and some renovation for the price paid. Hotel is a typical northern european hotel with the design made in 70-80s. Room facilities are well maintained, air in the room was kind of centrally desodorated, so i had some... More

This hotel is great. Super location in amongst the shops and restaurants, easy to reach from the airport, close to the city sites, small park closeby. I enjoyed the free WiFi and free breakfast very much. Varied dishes (blueberry soup, different fish/baby meatballs), pleasant bar area but here's why this hotel gets customer service right... and why, as a busy... More

Really a good hotel in center of Helsinki. Clean, good staff. Great breakfast with a good selection of food. Really recommended and are going to stay there next time in Helsinki. A little bit of traffic noise in the rooms heading to the Main Street.

When living in hotels 150 nights every year, there will always be some hotels, you like to return to. And SCANDIC SIMONKENTTÄ is definite one of them. The hotel is located in the central area of Helsinki; close to everything and perfect for both business and pleasure visits. Nice reception area, combined with a bar and a very nice sitting... More

The location of the hotel is amazing. You can walk in every direction directly from there and public transport just in front of the hotel. The hotel has been built some years ago, the lobby and restaurant had been renewed, the standard room we had, was a bit older. The room was well kept and clean. The bathroom is spacious.... More

Scandic Simonkentta is located a few minutes' walk from Helsinki's main train station and adjacent to the main bus station. It is about 10 minutes' walk to Market Square and Helsinki Cathedral, and about 10 minutes' walk to the National Museum (in the other direction). The rooms are clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable. The breakfast provided is wonderful, especially the... More

This hotel is convenient for those who need easy (and undercover) access to the Kampi bus and metro station - two of the elevators connect directly. Also it is close to the main railway station and the stop for the bus from the airport. In the room it is possible to connect a computer to the TV via HDMI or... More
