“Good solution nearby downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Hotel situated in a fairly central location, with easy access. The Scandic Continental is good. Rich and varied breakfast (I did not use the restaurant, but seems to have a good menu), the rooms are comfortable and gib, as well as the bathroom. I found everything clean and in order.
The décor is classic, a little dated but in good condition. The bed was very comfortable and the room quiet, even though overlooking the street and at a low floor (excellent thermal and sound-absorbing glass windows). The price is good .... in short, I recommend it!

This hotel is about 10 minutes walk from main railway station. It seems they are renovating half of the hotel. We stayed at the old part, which was quite worn-out already. Heating was really working and a temperature was high in our room. TV was small and old (not flat screen). The breakfast was typical scandinavian variety, nothing to complain, but nothing special.

Tram and car traffic at Mannerheimintie (street) could be heard in the room (if on the facade side).

Summary: If the price is cheap and you are not looking for nothing fancy, you can stay here. Otherwise you can get much better value for money from e.g. other Scandics in Helsinki. I hope they renovate this hotel soon, there is still potential.

Room Tip: Inner yard might be quieter choice.

Welcoming, friendly, helpful staff. Clean spacious room with good facilities. Breakfast good, plenty of variety and good coffee. Stay most enjoyable in a relaxing environment. I would stay here again when visiting Helsinki.

A bit off the city center. Location is great if you're about to visit Opera, Finlandia house or Olympic stadium.
The hotel was under some kind of renevation.
My room was a bit worn but it was spacious. Good breakfast and service.
In general in scandic you know what you get.

Location is great if you want to visit Opera or Finlandia Hall. Finnair bus stop is just across the street. City centre is only 5 minutes walk away. The hotel has bikes for free and it is nice to bike around the bay. Check in and out was fast, breakfast good Finnish standard and breakfast room not crowded. My room was quiet, facing the Crowne Plaza hotel. The hotel rooms are under refurbishment, which will certainly make this hotel even nicer experience.

It's expensive!! But then everywhere and everything in Finland is! Stayed here for a month on business and it really added up, glad my company was footing the bill! To me the hotel felt a bit outdated and in need of a facelift, granted I htink my room was in one of the older parts of the hotel as one of my clloeagues ahd a much nicer ad brighter room. One annoynace I found was that there was no trays in the breakfast room, this meant having to make sevral trips up and down to the buffet to get your breakfast. breakfast was good though with plenty of choice. Stayed in the Crowne Plaza also and although expensice too, is a better standrd than the Scandic.
