“Good clean hotel close to the railway station and the city centre.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Typically for a Scandic hotel, it's well located and has a clean and elegant style with well appointed rooms and free good wifi throughout the building, a good breakfast (Scandic standard) and good prices for a business hotel. Not forgetting the sauna!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This hotel is in front of the railway station (but quiet and peaceful), in the city center, location is really convenient. The people at reception are nice and helpful.
Rooms are not large, but standard size, with comfortable beds, very clean.
Restaurant offers very good food for dinner for reasonable price, and breakfast buffet is huge, with fresh good food.
Parking places are available near the hotel.
Room prices are normal prices for Finland (approx 100 euros per night, depending on the season).

Recently renovated rooms and location in the immediate centre of Tampere made this the hotel of my family's choice. The service was very friendly. Breakfast was nice. The breakfast is standard Finnish hotel breakfast.

Have been staying at the Scandic Tampere for years. This is a good choice for the first timer in Tampere, as well as the experienced traveler to TRE.

The rooms are consistent with Scandic recipe for a good nights sleep. The breakfast buffet is up to snuff with standards for a Finnish breakfast buffet.

The sauna is always a great way to end the business day and plan your evening out on the town.

The restaurant and bar breaks the mold for 'never eat where you sleep'. However, there a plenty of other restaurant and bar choices just a short walk away.

All in all, this is a great Scandic franchise facility and excellent location across from the train station.

Rooms are standard scandic standard, with the difference to older hotels, that it s still relatively new. Breakfast is grap, like in all finnsh family hotels or Scandic/Sokos Hotels. You' ll eat, but you are not enjoying it.

Typical Scandic experience when making and altering the reservation with special requests and checking in/out at reception: Scandic has clearly invested in customer service, attitude of the employees, and making a difference with a refreshing, pragmatic, modern, Scandinavian service with a smile. Good job at reception with all our requests! The rooms were clean, modern, plain. TVs will be changed to flat-screen soon (smart sign next to TV!). Some mistakes have been done in the renovation of some of the bathrooms - water from the shower flooded the whole bathroom floor of our bathroom as apparently a sealing was missing or leaking. My parents ate at the hotel restaurant, which was a disaster: after waiting for 45 minutes for a pizza for a late night snack, it finally came but raw in the center... Apologies were fine but it should have been free of charge. For pizza, we certainly recommend Pizza Napolitana instead, not far away by foot.

We stayed at this hotel from 31.7-2.8. We booked superior-rooms for us and for my friend.

Rooms were at second floor, views to railwaystation.

+ excellent location
+ good breakfast

- old small tv - couldn't see it from bed or from anywhere
- no conditioner, no free waterbottles, only soap in superior
- all chairs were stained and dirty, yack!
- atmospehere is rooms are ugly green hospital style :)

Don't go there, take new scandic station hotel, or ilves hotel. Maybe suites are still good?
