The building is in the center of the city, that is pretty small and you can visit it walking. Out of the hotel there are always some taxi waiting, and if you are there for business is a good plus. The breakfast is one of the best I ever had: big choice of food and high quality. The service of... More

Modern Scandic chain hotel in excellent location. Close to everything by walk, but also main bus station in the same block and main train station just 200 m from the hotel. Big garage for parking under the hotel. Rooms good Scandinavian quality and simple design. I like it. Breakfast was alright but nothing special to tell. Would actually like to... More

We stayed this time few nights with my partner and I have also used hotel several times on business trips because of it's great location in Helsinki. I must say that 4 stars is too much for this hotel. Sound proof is not very good and you can easily hear voices from streets. Summer nights in this hotel might be... More

As others have mentioned, the best bit about this hotel is its central location, near the train station - Helsinki is a very pedestrian friendly city and on a sunny day, great to walk around. The hotel itself is a bit Scandinavian brutalist in its architecture and the rooms small (by international standards) but well organised, with all the basics.... More

I stayed here one night in August. Overall experience was positive but hotel does not quite reach the excellent mark. The staff was very friendly and explained all details about breakfast, wifi etc. My room was on the fourth floor facing the inner yard (although reception promised me a room facing the other way, not quite sure what went wrong...

Small and probably the best room during our Baltic Capitals tour. BUT, no tea and coffee making facilities. This is POOR. Room service is 15 euros (£13) !!!!!! before any purchase. Our safe in the room was defective but very quickly and efficiently fixed. All the reception staff in fact were always very friendly and helpful. Free, fast wifi available... More

I have stayed over 100 nights at Scandic Simonkenttä over the last 3 years (2011-13) and still occasionally in 2014 (since less travel to Helsinki now). Simonkenttä is really nicely located hotel in down town. The whole down town is walking distance from the hotel, and 2 big malls, Forum and Kamppi accessible from hotel without even a need to...

My husband and I have just returned on Tuesday. We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. I am on a gluten free wheat free diet. I had read great reviews about the availability of such foods in Helsinki. The hotel even had gluten free food on their menu. Sunday morning arrived so we went down to breakfast, it was... More

A very modern hotel inside and out, very Finnish. Nearby, central train station, museums and Esplanaden shopping district. Our spacious room offered a wonderful view of the city, also a comfortable bed, a wardrobe, writing desk and soft chairs. A/C was surely needed in July and very comforting. Nice bathroom with all amenities. Buffet breakfast was very good with many... More

Maybe it's just a British thing, but I do like having a kettle in my hotel room so I can have a coffee whilst getting ready, but there wasn't one. Apart from that the hotel was clean and tidy and very warming to guests. The bar and mini bar was fine, as was the morning breakfast. Location wise, it's right... More
