“Pleasant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

One nice hotel with the best location, Scotmaan is right opposite, all the best facilities and value for money. If only menu options in restaurant were more . Overall a real pleasant stay. Staff is very friendly and English is known, you can rent bicycle or call a taxi . Recommend

Decent enough hotel on a main busy street in the city centre. Reasonably near to Stockmann department store and the railway station. A bit more of a walk to the harbour area but Helsinki is a compact city so a leisurely stroll will soon get you to most central places from here.

Staff pleasant enough and food more than adequate.

I stayed at the Scandic Marski, only because my regular choice in Helsinki, the Scandic Simonkentta was sold out. The hotel is conveniently located with easy access to the central station, buses and trams. The usual Scandic amenities are available - good breakfast, high speed wireless Internet and restaurant/bar.

The rooms are a bit old and worn out (seems to be a common Scandic problem) and need renewal. I was alotted a room facing the main road and the traffic noise during the day & night was terrible. The gymnasium is also very small and gets cramped if four or more people decide to exercise at the same time.

Generally a suitable choice for business travellers.

Room Tip: Request for a room away from the main road as the traffic noise is unbearable.

I spent a night in the hotel because of a business trip. WiFi worked well, breakfast was good and the location is in the center of the city. What else could you ask, if you are looking for a hotel in Helsinki?

I have been stayed there for one week. The rooms were very safety, although we went on january, the rooms were hot. The location is at the middle of the city and near to every where in Helsinki.
The crew was very helpful and polite.
The servings in breakfast was delicious.

Room Tip: I recommend a street view room. The lights seem wonderful at the evening.

On May 2, 2013 was my fourth time in “Scandic Marski” hotel in Helsinki, Finland since December 2011. Everything was excellent as usual. Nothing has been changed or worsened. Why I like it? I’m going to repeat it again.
First of all, it takes only five minutes to get the Railway Station from the hotel by walk. There you can take the trains to any other town of Finland or to Saint Petersburg and Moscow, Russia. It takes only three hours and fifty minutes to travel to Saint Petersburg, Russia by “Allegro” train. Big hypermarkets such as the “Stockman”, “Forum” and “Sokos” are situated either in front of the hotel on the other side of Mannerheim Avenue or in the next door building. The National Museum of Finland and Ferry Boat terminal are situated in the ten minutes walking distance. Taking that ferry boat you can get the Suomenlinna (Sveaborg) fortress with its museums. It will take about eighteen minutes walk to get the Military Museum at the intersection of Maurinkatu and Liisankatu Streets.
This time we got the triple room instead of twin one. It was pretty big anl all the beds were very comfortable. There were the TV set, refrigerator with mini bar, central heating and air conditioner in the room. Such useful things as the ironing machine and iron were also found in the room. Bath room was big enough and was equipped with the comfortable bathtub. Hairdryer is available in the bathroom too. Everything was quite new and clean.
Free Wi Fi is available in the Hotel and free internet connection via the desk top is available downstairs at the ground or zero floor. Parking although with the limited space but still available.
Food in the restaurant was good and plentiful. Amazingly but it is a matter of fact there were several hundreds people in the restaurant during the breakfast time but there were neither crowds nor long queues and free places at the tables were available. I believe “Marski” should be proud with its restaurant and breakfasts.
Hotel provides you the opportunities to attend free sauna and gym. All personnel were very helpful and spoke fluent English. So, everything is like during the old good times!
I’m sure I’ll stay there again!
