The moment we entered the hotel we were made to feel welcome from the friendly smile from the hotel reception staff! We had booked the 'superior plus' room and now had a choice of room with a bathtub or a sauna. Sauna it was! The check-in was quick and we were told about the breakfast times and the restaurants in the hotel.
The room was on the fifth floor overlooking the Paasi Square. The room was very spacious. There was a sofa, armchair and a dining table for 4 people. The kitchenette was equipped with coffee/tea making facilities (only with coffee creamer though), a fridge and a microwave oven. The bed was king size and it was very comfortable. The dim lighting in the toilet was great if you needed to go in the middle of the night: you didn't need to switch on the bright main light on...
The sauna was a good size, and nice and hot! I think the first time we had set the temperature too high as the 'löyly', the steam was burning hot. Or maybe we poured too much water on the stones at once! But anyway it was very relaxing to have it in your room.
The breakfast was the usual good standard Scandic breakfast with nice and varied choice of food and drinks. The orange juice (from the iPad operated juice machine!) was tasting like a freshly squeezed juice.
The hotel is very near to tram and bus stops, and the metro station. It's only a quick walk from the main shopping areas of central Helsinki too.
We loved the hotel and the service, the reasonable prices. The fast and free wi-fi is great. We will be back in the summer!
