“good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Centrally located, the four-star Scandic Continental Hotel is surrounded with plenty of city's attractions, business destinations and cultural spots.
Among numerous hotel's services, guests are offered free Wi-Fi and an indoor swimming pool.
The restaurant Lastu at Scandic Continental hotel treats to contemporary cuisine, beverages and desserts.
Helsinki Central Railway Station is situated within 1km from the hotel.
Unique Quality: There's a sauna and a swimming pool up on the 9th floor. I would've liiked a swim after a long day, but it cost 17 €/person so I decided not to go. I was a bit disappointed at that. It would've been free of charge in the morning from 7 till 12.

One of the older hotels in Helsinki, yet good and clean. The room was also very quiet and the sauna & swimming pool at the top floor was nice.

I have been in this hotel before and I find it an best choice for Helsinki city trips because of location, comfort and its value for money. Very warm welcome from the man at reception, free access to computer and able to print material (all in the lobby). Very good location, good elevators and nice porridge for breakfast. But this time the room was a bit less comfortable because of its strange shape, so there was less space the we were expecting. Otherwise
everything was great as usual.

Det här hotellet är stort och verkar ha hur många rum som helst.
Lyxigt rum för billig peng :-) Badrummet är nåt extra.

Svensk information saknas till stor del. Det ger minus.
Däremot har man beaktat sina rysktalande gäster.

Scandic Continental is a big hotel about 10-15min walk from Helsinki city (Sokos, Forum, Stockmann quarters). You can also take the tram (ratikka), is just a few stops to the centre. The hotel is very near the Finlandia house and the Opera House.
The room we had was a little bit out of date. I don't like the old carpets, prefer wooden floors easy to keep clean. I heard that some part of the hotel has been refurnished.
The breakfast vas very good, but nothing extra ordinary, usual good Scandic standard.
On the top flor they have a swimmingpool with a nice view over the city, but it would be in need of an make over that one too.
If you are going to Helsinki for buisness or an Opera visit the hotel is a good choise, but if you are just up to shopping and having fun, I would prefer a hotel near the big shoppingcentres.

Room Tip: Tell the staff that you want a room in the refurnished part of the hotel.

Stayed one night at on August 27, 2011.The hotel was basic and the room we stayed (family room) consists of one queen bed and one sofa bed. The queen bed was fine, the sofa bed - lets just say I did not have a good night sleep, the mattress was very thin. The room was also dark, old and outdated.

There is free wireless internet and the location of the hotel was excellent. There is a park across the street. The hop on hop off bus has a stop right next to the hotel. The airport bus has a stop across the street. We walked to the center city and it was about 20 mins of a very easy walk.

The breakfast buffet was good and plentiful.

Also, we had a late flight out of Helsinki, so we put our luggage in the storage room after checking out. The part of that hotel actually smelled like a sewer. If you are expecting nothing nicer or better than basic you can take this hotel but if you are expecting four star value, please think again
