“Nice place to stay, but little bit expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

I stayed in for 4 nights, the hotel is situated near port and not so far from the city center. The rooms were little bit old dated. The hotel on the other hand offered very good conference rooms & excellent breakfast.

The location of the Scandic Grand Marina right at the waterfront is very charming. Still, only two tramstops away from the city centre and good shops. This is also walkable, by the way. The hotel is quite busy but the service was very good, just remember that this is Helsinki, and smiles are expensive. All attitude very professional. Breakfast was very good and the rooms nice, clean and the bed was very comfortable.

Busy hotel OK for business visit and nice location near waterfront. Clean but quite basic. Lacks the touches that the price demands. Sauna and gym OK but gym lacks good aircon and no treadmill and sauna lacks fresh drinking water and relaxation area.

we read here some complaints about having no bath. It is true, but it is also a much better solution for the ageing people like us. You don't need to "climb" to have a shower. As its rates always include free internet and free breakfast the price may seem high. They have an option for pre-payment that can offer up to 25% discount

We were on conducted tour of Scandinavia in June 2013, our experience was good , Location - Excellent, Reception - Robotic expressionless, favoring white race guests first than Asians and others, Rooms were spacious, bathrooms only showers cubicles with liquid soaps, good continental breakfast, slow checkout, overall experience was just OK, there is some problem in their room key coding system , I have to visit thrice to the reception and waited again and again in Q to get key code corrected before check in .

Room Tip: Prefer rooms with marina view , which is on the front side of hotel

A central location. Good public areas, but dark corridors and tiny rooms. No tea or coffee making facilities and small bathrooms with shower only. For the price this hotel doesn't meet the grade. Breakfasts however are great

Room Tip: Haven't found one yet!

This hotel is very drab and uninspiring. No pictures or decorations anywhere to be seen. Our room was small and without tea/coffee making facilities. En suite barely adequate with shower but no bath. Few products provided and threadbare towels. The breakfast is ok and the location is good. Service is pretty indifferent with a lot of waiting to check in.

Room Tip: Try a different hotel
