“Gorgeous hotel with excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Spent a night at Paasi with kids over 1st of May (vappu) celebrations. We requated a room with a bath tub as the kids love it. At arrival we were greeted with exceptional friendliness by the staff. Nothing like we've ever experienced in a chain hotel in Finland. The room was spectacular and the location superb. Big thumbs up for the service and the staff in this hotel, will definitely recommend to anyone and visit again!

Dear Saaruli, team of Scandic Paasi sends you and your family their best and cheerful regards and wish to see you soon again as our guest. Wonderful to hear that your cute kids enjoyed bath tub, it offers a lot of joy. Thank you for sharing pictures of your stay. Room category was "family superior plus" and it offers more space and also little kitchenette, which might be often valuable when travelling with small children. We hope to see you again in summer time, when Korkeasaari Zoo and Linnanmäki amusement park are open. From the other side of street you can take a ferry to Korkeasaari Zoo and tram 3B goes directly to Linnanmäki, both in 10 minutes. So warmly welcome!

Stayed with my wife at Scandic Paasi first time last weekend. We heard before that this quite new (opened autumn 2012) hotel is very good, but it was even better than we expected. We had a superior room with stylish interior design and a bathroom with the tub and a "rain shower". The staff was very friendly and helpful. A strong recommendation from us.

We stayed 3 nights in the hotel Scandic Paasi. The hotel is very well situated, nearby public transport, shops and restaurants, not far from the center of Helsinki. Very friendly staff, good breakfast.
We had a Comfort-room: quiet sleep, good bed, excellent shower in the bathroom and a separate toilet.
The general lightning was rather weak despite of the numerous spots, the room was darkish because of the choice of colour on the sealing (dark brown) and the walls (brown / dark red). Maybe this could be a plus-point during the summer when the nights are bright in Finland?
According to the hotel information all the rooms are not the same; they have different themes on the decoration. For our next visit we would prefer a less dark room.
We were missing a wardrobe with shelves. The room has a balcony but no ashtray. The hotel is a non smoking hotel but smokers have tendency to smoke on the balcony. We noticed that the roof in front of our balcony was full of cigarette stubs. Now there was snow to cover them but what happens when there is no snow? It could be easier if not necessary to put an ashtray on the balcony.

Dear Anne H,
We appriciate a lot you taking the time to share your experience. You are right, we have rooms with different interior design and lightning. For your next visit we warmly recommend you to experience for example room with "spectacular style" in 1920's part. Thank you so much for telling smoking details. We have balconys equipped for smokers on the sixth floor (highest floor at the hotel), and realized with your help that we need to reconsider this area. Thank you. We hope to have you as our guest soon again!

When you often stay at hotels, it is hard to get surprised, but hotel Scandic Paasi did just that by its interesting interior design and modern features. Hotel is located centrally but in a very quit place. One of the best features was the connection to a very popular excellent restaurant with truly great food. Breakfast offers a good variety. Got impressed by the juice and water tap which you control by tapping on an iPad. Nice place.

We booked a superior room as a treat. In addition to the room being bigger all films were included and you get a 5 euro voucher to buy something from their little shop. The hotel is decorated in a quirky design. Our room was very nice, clean and the beds was really comfortable. The staff are very friendly, which makes you feel like you can approach them if something was wrong. We did have problems the first night due to a faulty air conditioning making a racket. The next day we were given a new room with a bath, which was better than the room we had with a shower. Helsinki is still quite cold, so being able to soak in a hot bath is lovely. Breakfast was really good with organic porridge, fresh fruit, natural yogurt, bread, jams, warm boiled eggs and all the cooked stuff if that is your thing. They also had a variety of foods that were low lactose and gluten free. What was really nice was when the breakfast server went round the room letting people know that they were going to clear everything away and made sure that we all had what we wanted. The reception is a nice area to have a nightcap and there are three iPads to surf on, but only one seemed to be working. Of course there was free wifi too. The hotel is two stops on the metro from Central station and due to its location opposite a park it is very quiet. I have no hesitations in recommending this hotel.

Dear Yorkie1977,
Thank you so much for your recommendation. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed Scandic's superior extra room with it's supplementary benefits. We agree, bath in a room during this time of the year in Helsinki is just lovely. We are happy to offer bathtubs as a treat in 54 rooms in six different room categories. Your nice description of Paasi's breakfast motivated our breakfast team even more. Thank you. We believe that breakfast has great impact on the good start of a new day and therefore we cherish it's details every morning. Hope to see you as our guest soon again!

We've stayed here just for 1 night in a room with balcony and sauna. The hotel is located on quiet square not so far from Central Railroad station (and airport bus stop). Good choice of beer in the lobby bar - but it takes some time for us to find entrance to the restaurant. Breakfast was, as always, excellent (yes, another iPad to choose juice). And only one problem - speed bag is going out of the platform just after two kicks - but I have my pocket screwdriver to fix it on my own :) so far, one of two of my preferred hotels in Helsinki.

Dear Stanislav M,
To be one of your preferred hotels in Helsinki - thank you, that sentence means so much to us.
We will have a serious talk with our speed ball in a room, it should not act like that :). We are so sorry about it. And for your next visit we have add more signages to make finding entrance and getting around to two restaurants more easy for you. That is our development area at the moment. Thank you for your nice review. We are looking forward to be able to welcome you soon again to Scandic Paasi!
