“5 Day Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

As always, the Scandics are clean and reception staff is freindly and helpful. The workout area is small, but there was no one there excet, me, so was fine. The hotel is central to shopping and the rail station and parking under the hotel was easy and reasonably priced. There are several nice restuarants nearby, as well as the one in the hotel. You can really never go wrong with Scandic. Even if you stay for one night, once in your life, join the Scandic club because you get immediate benefits.

Room Tip: There was no view side of the hotel and all rooms appeared the same. join the Scandic club and you m...

No complains at all really, reception staff was very helpful and friendly, good breakfast, nice clean room, free WiFi in the rooms no problems here as well.
Great situation of the hotel, right in the city centre, basically everything in a walking distance.
Maybe a bit pricey, but we booked just a few days before the trip, it's of course better to book as early as possible to get best prices.
Nonetheless I totally recommend it!

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!

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.
