The hotel became worse. Of course, such advantages as convenient location, helpful personnel, nice features as high-speed internet, new TV sets, e-check out make the hotel competitive. I still believe that the Scandic chain is super! However, there was something that disappointed me during my stay. It was cleaning: mildew stains in the bathroom were noticeable. I was not looking...

I stayed here for 4 nights in late August 2014 with a friend on a holiday. Great central location within walking distance of most attractions, many shops, restaurants, cafes and public transport (bus station is behind the hotel inside a shopping centre and railway station is about 5 - 10 minute walk) as well as taxi rank outside the foyer....

Only had 1 night here but place is great in a central location form everywhere in town. Free Wifi. Very clean hotel with a good selection for breakfast. Rooms not very big but no need for big room when not spending time in there.

Stayed for two nights as part of a tour group. Location is perfect everything is close by. Room was excellent clean and comfortable bed. Buffet breakfast was fine and very busy, staff on the desk were helpful. Don't forget to visit the chapel of silence just beside the hotel

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
