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

Hotel location is good, staff is very friendly. Restaurant is typical hotels restaurant, nothing special. But superior room sizes varies and I'v seen 3 bathrooms of those, all of them needs a proper basic cleaning. It's very difficult to give feedback with photos to scandic hotels - no one answered to my questions, when I asked to whom should I... More

Overall Watch out for the other Scandic close by Tampere station. Same same but different... Keep your room key card away from your phone. Somehow the radiation from the phone resets the coding on the card and you will have to change the card at the reception. Service - Professional and generally good service. Housekeeping could be slightly better. Could... More

This hotel is located in the center of the city, right across the street from the railway station and by the main street of Tampere. The location makes this hotel a great choise for both business travellers and people who want to easily roam around the city. Our room was clean and tidy. The whole hotel is kept up nicely... More
