I stayed here for a conference. The hotel is well appointed and the rooms are fresh and clean. There were a number of touring parties staying and so breakfast was hectic. There were plenty of seats however. I didn't use the restaurant for dinner but the city centre is a short walk away and there are restaurants there. The hotel bar did seem to close quite early on Sunday night. Overall a pleasant experience!

This slightly quirky ex-warehouse on the docks is fun! Close to the centre, it offered good rooms (we asked for a harbour view and got it. Breakfast was good and at the end of a bus tour of 15 days we enjoyed a well-presented dinner.

The reception staff were the best we encountered in nine countries of our trip, even if Finland lost their world ice-hockey game to the US.

Happy to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view

Scandic Grand Marina hotel is situated nearby the habour in a former storehouse built over 100 years ago. You can easily walk to the Helsinki city center. The rooms are clean and quiet. In the morning you can enjoy a very good breakfest. Have been here many times and I will return.

The only bright side of my stay was the proximity to the city center. The difficulties I experienced;
No late check-outs allowed, limited choices for breakfast, very very slow room service even though you pay 10 euros on top of what you order as the room service surcharge, overall cleanliness is not up to par ,etc., etc.,... (the quality of the rooms will remind you of your college dorm days!..)

- Looong queus when checking in, took forever.
- No soap in room, mini bar locked.
- No answer when calling the front desk, of course no direct number to house keeping. When mini bar is finally opened, it' s empty. Why is it locked?
- Room has two odd-shaped windows: one is heavily covered with darkening curtains, other one has one broken roman blind. Result: sun shining in the room all night. No sleep
- Cleaning of room is bad
- Closet is narrow with three hangers. Four more hangs on the wall.
+ Big spacious room (although desolate)
+ Good bed
+ Good location
