“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights to attend a business event so we received a very good rate for the rooms because the event also used several of the conference rooms in the hotel.
My room was on the 7th floor, I asked for a room away from the busy road outside and it was quiet facing the inside of the building so no view but it's worth it for peace and quiet to me.
The room was comfortable with 2 single beds joined and plenty of hanging space and drawers. I would have liked tea/coffee making facilities in the room but there were none.
The bathroom was very clean but also very compact.
I ate in the hotel restaurant and found the service and food quality both to be excellent. I was also pleasantly surprised that the hotel menu was very reasonably priced so don't assume because its a hotel the meals are expensive.
The only disappointing feature with the dining room was the breakfast, there was no one to allocate tables, you had to find one yourself then find cutlery. The food at breakfast was varied and good quality but supplying fruit to cut up yourself using quite a large knife was I thought a bit risky! Please ask the kitchen to provide ready prepared cut fruit.
Reception were very helpful and everyone spoken fantastic English - thank you!
The hotel is in an excellent location to explore Helsinki and only a short walk to the harbour where you can catch a variety of ferries to different destinations.

Room Tip: If you don't like road noise ask for a room facing the inside of the hotel

We spent two nights here on a brief trip to Helsinki.
The hotel is very central: ten minutes walk from the central railway station and the airport bus terminal. It is very easy to walk around the city using this hotel as your base: you can get to Helsinki Observatory (the most Southern point of the city) in about twenty minutes and many trams stop just aside the hotel.
The Scandic Marski itself is very clean and the staff are friendly and efficient. We had a deal that included breakfast which had a really good variety to choose from.
There are several saunas which are gorgeous. If there was one disappointment for us it was that the saunas weren't open in the mornings on weekdays but that is a very minor issue.
Good value, great location, lovely people.

Room Tip: 7th floor terrace, 8th floor sauna.

We stayed here two nights. The room was dated and in need of refurbishment but the staff were very helpful, the cost was reasonable, the location excellent as was the breakfast. A good place to stay in Helsinki without breaking the bank.

We arrived here not expecting much but found a very nice room, with great curtain (needed in the summer), ac that worked well, a nice shower and a wonderful breakfast.

The reception is extremely busy but they were still able to answer our many questions as well as try to help us deal with lost luggage.

We would strongly recommend as the location and breakfast are close to perfection. It is true that there is no coffee stuff in the room

Another sample of scandinavia-wide hotel network.
Rooms are good and big enough. But staying in new building makes it tricky - you have to change an elevator which is difficult if you are staying with children or lots of luggage.
As hotel is in downtown and close to railway station - be prepared for lots of visitors during breakfast. Find vacant table takes time!
Breakfast is OK but basically same meatballs/mached eggs/beans etc as in any other of scandic hotels.
Esplanade and Stockman store are just cross the street.

We stayed here for two nights and we both liked this hotel. It has everything you can expect from a good hotel, with the following things that stick out:

On the plus side:
+ Great location.
+ Computers available in the lobby with possibility to print things (for free)
+ We stayed on the first floor (as in, one floor above ground floor) on the street side. Noice isolation was very good. You could of course always here a few things, but that's normal in a city.
+ Breakfast was outstanding. Lots of choice, food quality very good.
+ Friendly helpful staff

There aren't downsides really. Only thing is that the room looks a bit outdated (old colours) and because of that the room doesn't look as clean as a modern room. But it was clean, so that's no problem at all.

Standard room in older part of the hotel was very nice and stylish. New TV. Bed is ok, but pillows are small. Bathroom is spacious made of interesting marble plates. Restaurant serves good quality food.
