This was our second stay in this hotel this year and we loved it!

Not much to add to my previous review: room was good size with a kitchenette, the hotel is a short walk away from city centre and near to public transport links.

Service and staff were great from the moment we checked in. Erica at the reception made us feel very welcome: she showed us two rooms we could choose from, she was always smiling and happy with all the customers.

We would be very happy to stay in Hotel Paasi again!

We spent 2 nights over the long mid-summer festival (20, 21 June)
We arrived from Singapore on an early morning flight but were given a room once we reached at 8 am. The room was big with a lovely balcony. The staff were really helpful and always cheerful .
The breakfast is awesome , so much to choose from. The location is perfect too direct bus from the airport and a nice walk to Senate square.
A really good address in Helsinki .

My partner and I enjoyed our four-night stay at the Scandic Paasi over the Midsummer's Eve holiday. The hotel is stylish, modern, and comfortable, and it's located in a nice, quiet neighborhood (albeit a little sleepy and out of the way...it takes 15-20 minutes to walk to central Helsinki). The breakfast buffet was good, with plenty of tasty items to choose from; the beds were comfy; the shower/tub was great (although the glass partition didn't do a very good job of keeping the water off the floor); and the staff were consistently personable and helpful. Our only real complaint was with the housekeeping, which seemed a little haphazard. Some days were fine and others it seemed like they whizzed through our room in 30 seconds, just long enough to throw the bed cover over the wrinkled sheets. Also, the lack of a phone in the room was confounding. On a couple of occasions we wanted to call down to the front desk to ask a question, but we had to walk down there instead, which wasn't a huge deal because it was just one floor down. Still, it kind of gives the impression that the staff don't want to address guests' questions/issues, which isn't the impression they give when you interact with them face to face. But these complaints are pretty minor. Overall, the Scandic Paasi is definitely worth a try the next time you're in Helsinki.

Dear briguy2006,
It was a big pleasure to have you as our guest at Scandic Paasi. Thank you so much for sharing your story with other readers, so kind of you. How sad we are to hear that you had to walk to reception to get service. There should be a telephone in every room. We are so terribly sorry you did not have. Our mistake, please forgive us. We feel so embarrassed to read about the daily cleaning. It was not at all according our standards and values. Thank you so much for giving us a new try in the future. We are looking forward to meet you soon again. You are so warmly welcome!

This hotel was great fun, we even had a punching bag in our room. Great price for the amenities, the location and the service. Lounge, ipad lounge, designer and snack store, small bar and free bikes, there is something here for everyone. Moreover, we were steps from a water inlet, near to the park and only minutes away from either market square or Finlandia hall and the Kallio neighborhood in the north. The breakfast buffet offered several options, we had 3 breakfasts and we were able to choose something different and fun every day - several vegetarian options (organic, vegan, etc, - they have it) . The room was big and the bathrooms were a designer's heaven.

What would I do better? The free bikes are great but it will be awesome if they could get a few more.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Were only in Helsinki for 2 nights, 1 full day. Greeted by friendly and knowledgable woman at the desk who checked us in, answered some questions, and lent us bicycles (free to guests). We were told we'd been upgraded and ended up in a room on the top floor with somewhat of a view. The WC and shower rooms each had heated floors, which was awesome. enough space. Bed fine, a bit firm. Decor is modern and artsy, but nothing about this place is pretentious, which I really appreciated.

Location is fine, but we are young and mobile on foot or on bike.

Breakfast was pretty good, too. On our second morning there we had to leave for the airport before breakfast even opened and they packed meals for us on the way out. Great hotel experience.

Honestly don't know where to start, as we were simply amazed by this hotel. The staff was very friendly and the location is good, even though not right in the city centre. You are close to the water, around 30 min by taxi from Helsinki airport and can either walk to the city centre (10-15 min) or take the metro / tram, which is literally 1 min walk from the hotel.

We booked two rooms to cater for the family and the rooms had very different styles, but both were good size to move around and feel comfortable. One even had a balcony facing the inside yard. What we especially liked were the bathrooms, which appeared to be rather new.

The breakfast was amazing for the price we paid. The choice was enormous and you could not eat everything that was on offer. With my wife been celiac, we could not remember when we ever had a choice of gluten free food at any breakfast buffet comparable to the Scandic Paasi.

All in all, the value for money is really excellent, the rooms are good size and very different but nice designs, the breakfast is just perfect, plus you get free WiFi in the rooms and the hotel. Finally, the iPad station in the lobby area made my kids especially happy as they could just sit there and play, while we enjoyed the free hot beverages.
