The hotel is very conveniently located with respect to Helsinki attractions and to restaurants and shopping, many of which are within walking distance. It is also easily reached from the docks. The tram stops right outside. The rooms are small but nicely furnished and the included breakfast had a wide selection. We also used their sauna one night. Docking them... More

I have been many times in this hotel. Always good and fast service in and out. Good breakfast and little gym to do some fitness. I always took superior class room and those were always good. Location is great in downtown of Helsinki. This hotel is super easy to reach by bus- or train you don’t need a car. If... More

A good hotel that is clean, spacious and with a good complimentary breakfast. I particularly like the curved shower screen that they incorporated into their bathroom. But it would be good for small bathrooms. This allows some space of the shower cabinet to be released to the other space within the bathroom. But for hotels when the bathroom size is... More

Scandic Hotels are a chain based in the Nordic countries of Europe (the name is a giveaway;). I had never been to a Scandic establishment before and so had no expectations. This might be partly why I found the whole experience so refreshing. First up the concept is very, well, Scandinavian. Their approach is one of ecological sustainability, down to... More

Location , service and cleanness are excellent. I will come next Helsinki trip To this hotel without hesitation. The deposition of baggage for 5 days make me facile tour. The response is very fast such as request to electric pot.

I arrived at 5 pm to Simonkentta and the check-in in service was ok. When I got to my room it was poorly cleaned with dust and rubbish on the floor and surfaces. I got the room changed but the next one was the same. :) I guess this hotel does not have a quality program in the field of... More

This hotel is located right at the heart of the city next to Kamppi (shopping center as well as bus and metro station). Rooms are clean and nice with friendly staff. The children's activity corner seems to have gone down a bit since I was last here two years ago. Good buffet breakfast. Good hotel at the heart of the... More

The hotel is perfectly located near Mannerheimvägen, Alexandersgatan and all shopping, restaurants and attractions in Downtown Helsinki. Nice and immaculate rooms. You would, however expect a large Helsinki hotell to have front office staff with good knowledge of Swedish.
