scandic Hotel Simonkenttä is located next to central bus station in Helsinki. It is also next to shopping centres so it is really convenient location. Hotel is standard quality what you expect from nordics.

I decided to take my wife to Helsinki on the Finnish independence day and to Simonkenttä.
Reception was busy and the receptionist did not take any interest to the que. Service was ok but at best an average performance in Helsinki. Rooms are small and old but still functional. Breakfest is superior compared to Sokos Hotels in down town Helsinki.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a room in the quart yard and from high levels (4 and up).

First: location is exellent - close to the trainstation. Easy check in and also online check out. The room felt a bit old. As mentioned by others there is a sligt improvement potential when it comes to cleaning. The bathroom tiles are a bit stained and the ventilation vent in the bathroom roof was visibly filled with old dust.

Breakfast ok, but just that. Slightly boring with a very limited selection of fruits and vegetables.

The breakfast was ok. The hotelroom a bit worn out, and the noise from the street below and the corridors with the doors slamming all night long abrupted the good night sleep consistently. The Scandic group in Helsinki has seemingly some serius issues in cleaning and keeping their property: this room too was not well kept, filthy would be the word. It's a shame because the building is new and the location is one of the best in Helsinki

Room Tip: Upstairs might be more quiet

Simonkenttä is at the middle of Helsinki. There is only few steps walk to the center of the Helsinki city. Rooms are nice and clean. A very good choice to spend a short city holiday nearby everything.

Situated in walking distance from airport busses, railway station and city centre this hotel is great for exploring the city. The hotel itself is okay with standard Scandic facilities. Easy check in and out, bonus cheque concept, smiling staff and rich breakfast buffet. At the time I was there the central heating was out of order. The reception, lobby, and my room was very cold. It didn't change while I was there. Cleanliness was average. There are many other nice hotels in this area.
