“I want to note goodwill and quickness of the personnel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2010

We lived in Scandic Helsinki in October two nights. The hotel was pleasant. Good, cozy number (furniture and an interior not new, but in fair condition) at us looked like in a court yard. It is better to ask at placing a kind on park and street Mannerheeiminti. The bathroom has pleased with cleanliness and good illumination. In hotel was very good breakfast. When we chose Scandic Helsinki presence of a breakfast entering into cost on two persons was important criterion. In the next hotel the breakfast cost 19 euros on the person, though the next hotel like higher level. Still Scandic Helsinki network hotel and if to be registered in the program for 2-3 weeks to you will send the voucher for 5 euros. To us at settling have given two more vouchers on 6 euros. 17 euros and plus a discount of 20 % during week-end at restaurant very much were useful to us. From 7.00 till 11 00 a sauna is free. The big plus – is the free Internet on good speed. A unique minus of hotel is that it is situated (if it is not necessary to you 5stars) far from the center. Though we needed this place.
I want to note goodwill and quickness of the personnel.

In general I liked the time that I spent in hotel Scandic Continental.
It was my first visit to this hotel, aching remained is happy.
Numbers: very decent. Purely and all in good repair.
Very good bathroom, is available the hair dryer. A unique minus -
In number there is no safe. The big plus that in hotel works Wifi.
I took with myself Notebook, taking on a reception a card with the password, sat
On the Internet free of charge unlimited quantity of time.
Meal: the breakfast was pleasant. A buffet – a choice simply huge.
Everyone is put on what he attempt. The buffet works from 7-00 till 11-00.
For a supper there is not a buffet, but meal all the same very tasty, but rather expensive.
Opposite to hotel there is a fine garden where it is possible to take a walk.
Service in hotel is very good, the personnel is benevolent and affable.

Stayed 1 night and due to my error had not booked a family room in advance. They only had 2 rooms left and both smoking... yikes! The receptionist took me to go and see them both if they were acceptable and we ended up taking one of them. Since the windows could be opened and it was a warm summer day we were fine, no bad smell at all. The best thing was a sumptuous breakfast as is the custom in Finland ♥. Also the rooftop sauna & pool area was awesome with great views over the beautiful city of Helsinki.

Though the location is good and easy to get to, the hotel itself was old and worn. The rooms were good sized especially by European standards but the furnishings were very dated. The message and wake up call service is incorporated into the TVs and was not working. The hairdryers were... well puffed rather than blew air and were very noisy. The rooms facing the street were loud as the only climate control is open window to let in cooler air. The trams pass by day and night making it difficult to sleep.

Carpeting in the hallway was stained and worn. Electrical sockets in the room need to be replaced as connectors would not stay in contact.

The included breakfast was good and the staff friendly and competent but pick the Crowne Plaza right next door for a beautiful modern stay.

I spent three days in Helsinki at the Scandic Continental, following a month in Russia. It was an ideal place to unwind, relax and reload before my final leg of a round the world trip. The room was large, clean, well equiped, the bed was heavenly, and the bathroom was spectacular. The wi-fi was password protected, free, and high speed. The free sauna and pool was a bonus. I have to say the included breakfast was the best I encountered in my trip round the world. To top the experience off, there is a Finnish Air Airport bus stop just outside the hotel. I will return to this hotel on my next visit to Helsinki.

I've been there for two nights. The hotel is little bit far from the city center but it's in a quite area. The room was clean and the bathroom spacious. There are a lot of tourist group. The breakfast is huge and the service great. Staff helpful and always available. I can suggest this hotel. The hotel has got a solarium on the last floor and a swimming pool as well. Great value hotel! Book in advance, you'll save a lot of money!

After a struggle to find a hotel open over Christmas period in Helsinki we settled at Scandic Continental.

The hotel could do with a facelift, the lobby is a bit past it, rooms tired and the general feel is a little unloved.

Despite the hotel being open the bar was closed during Christmas, which wasn't great as we were a party of six and would have liked to have somewhere to catch up and plan our activities. So instead we spent a lot of time in the tired looking lobby.

The sauna/pool also had very limited opening times so we didn't have the opportunity to test those during our stay.

We were in town to visit family so luckily didn't have to spend much time at the hotel.

On the positive side the snowy view over the Toolonlahti bay from the rooms at the front was lovely and the breakfast buffet was very good with plenty of choice.
