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

The hotel is normal, maybe average. The weather was very warm, so the room was hot in the night. The room were we stayed is opposite the entrance of the hotel, second floor but quiet. The staff was polite and friendly excluding the staff in the restaurant during dining. Maybe they were too busy.

Stayed here for a recent wedding - when we arrived (12:30am) we were told that they only had smoking rooms left - we protested that as an asthma sufferer this wasnt going to be a good nights sleep - the staff placed us in a triple bed room - which really should have been the first option as no one...

The rooms are the size of clown cars. The bathroom and floors were NEVER cleaned during our 7 day stay. The hotel refused to turn on the air conditioning when the temperature outside was 87 degrees F with humidity. Therefore, we had to keep the windows open all night to the city sounds. People parties outside all night long. Buses,... More
