As the name suggests the hotel is right in the centre of Tampere. Rooms are well-equipped and clean, and pretty spacious. The heavy duty glazing means that despite the central location (and the proximity of the railway station), the rooms are nice and quiet, at least on the upper floors. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The downsides are... More

Stayed for one night on my first visit to Tampere. The hotel is clean and the staff friendly. I have stayed before at the Rica hotels and was intereested to see if Scandic compared since Scandic has recently taken over Rica. The overall experience was very similar to the Rica, which is a plus. In addition the hotel restaurant was... More

The hotel is well-situated in the heart of the city. Most major attractions are easily accessible. Only negative point about the hotel premises is the basement parking lot, which is very tight, requiring lots of concentration during parking. We had a top floor room, which previously probably has been two small rooms, which were combined during renovation. So the room... More

This is a popular hotel and reasonable value. The staff were all helpful and friendly. We were also given a generous number of vouchers on arrival. Breakfast was good with a wide choice - but always busy. The room was clean. The pillows were not popular with my family. When I booked I realised I had made a mistake because... More

I have often stayed at this nice hotel. The service has always been very friendly. The room was very clean (superior). Only thing what I hope is that hotel would changes new pillows! One evening we had to wait food very long time. Food was anyway very good.

Nice, clean & roomy hotel with mini-bar, safe & writing desk. Bed was ok but had those stupid half size square pillows again. No openable windows with internal view of the food court. Good shower except stupid glass screen means water goes all over the bathroom floor. Hairdryer & shaving mirror. Good breakfast.

Stayed here for work - very acceptable hotel and room for the price. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Breakfast was excellent (especially if you are keen for pickled fish) and there are plenty of dining options for the evening. Location was very central and easy to get to. Staff were particularly friendly and helpful. Would stay again and recommend... More

Very Nice hotel right in the centre with access to some nice restaurants locally but a very nice food court in the hotel itself. Rooms very comfortable however rather warm as the temp is pre set to 22degrees and also a dimmer light that won't turn off - you need to pull out the card to turn off the power... More

I've stayed here a few times before, too. Scandic Tampere City is very centrally located just opposite the Tampere Railway Station, so a good base for shopping and night life, too. Rooms are spacious (at least in the newer side of the hotel where my room was this time). Some rooms have windows and view to the restaurant in the... More
