The Room we had was comfortable and and had all the necessities needed. Shampoos bodylotion etc. all ecological.
What reduced our review one point was the poor and rather distastful breakfast.
The hotell is situated directly in the centre. The noisy traffic outside could not be heard at all.
The receptionists were all very helpful. However not selling stamps is unpractical.

Stayed: August 2012

Scandic Marski Hotel is located in Central Helsinki about 10 mins walk from the main train and bus station, The main shopping area is very close and the department store Stockman is just accross the street. I was in the hotel for 4 weeks on buisness so I guess I know what the hotel is really like, Got to say it is all good, the staff are very friendly and spaeak excellent english, did have a problem in room 608 as there was no Air con working but they quickly found me another room, as other review writers commented the rooms are quite large and fully equipped with mini bar and free Wi fi everywhere... the bar is good and not over priced for a city centre hotel, the breakfast buffet is excellent and has both a warm and cold buffet, you can even get boiled eggs with a choice of cooked for 4 or 7 min! the lunch time buffet is also excellent value and under €10, The evening menu is continental with steaks, burgers and of course fish, my overall impression of the hotel is good but as other revewers commented the rooms are looikng a little tried.

The hotel has a great location, just a few minutes' walk from the central train station. A couple of tram lines stop in front of the building. The staff is friendly and speaks excellent English. The room had hardwood floors, not carpets, as is typical in Europe. I heard virtually no sounds from other rooms. The bathroom floor was heated. The room safe was not large enough for a small laptop. The room included a minibar. The free wifi was great. I was "upgraded" to a room that had a bigger selection of TV channels, but there weren't as many as in other hotels. For English news there was BBC World and DW, which focuses mostly on Germany. The Finnish channels sometimes have American shows in English; there were also Swedish and French channels. The breakfast buffet was extensive, including scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, cold cuts, breads, fruit, etc.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the main street (Mannerheimintie) are probably quieter.

Good sized room; comfortable bed. Free wifi. Good breakfast buffet. Helpful staff. Difficult to find fault with this place.

Good location at one end of the esplanade.

Easy access to the new conference centre (Messeskus). It takes five minutes to walk to central station, then 5 minutes on one of the frequent commuter trains, and another 5 minute walk from there. There is a tram stop near the hotel. That takes about 20 minutes, so there's no difference.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the interior may be quieter.

Stayed 3 nights in this central Helsinki hotel for the Flow Festival 2012. It was situated near the central train station and near the Finnair Airport Bus drop off site. The breakfast spread was pretty big and included both warm (eggs etc) and cold items (fresh yogurt). Getting to the rooms was a bit different, as there are two sections of the hotel, we were in the second section. We had to take the elevator in the lobby to the 3rd floor. Then walk along a walkway to the latter part of the hotel. Not a big deal though. Bottom line is that the hotel is central to all of Helsinki and a great place to stay.

This hotel is situated at a prime location in city where almost everything for a tourist is within walking distance! I stayed here only for a day to catch an early morning flight.

Interior and overall hotel is ageing out and needs a makeover...!

But great location, very helping staff and spacious rooms. Has Free wi-fi and good speed too.

I chose Marski for it's central location - the hotel itself is fine, we stayed in a superior room which was spacious and stylish, with a nice big bathroom. The drains smelled slightly which was a shame and the room was hot so had to have the windows open but as the room was not facing the main road it was not noisy at all.

The breakfast needs to be mentioned though - what a palaver. The food was ok but having to fight other guests to get anywhere near it was stressful and was not a nice experience. The front desk service was always friendly and helpful.
