“An ok hotel with an excellent location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Stayed one night in October 2013.

This hotel has an excellent location, right in the middle of Helsinki, close to almost everything. The hotel itself is a bit dated but still reasonable comfortable. The bed was good and the room had everything one might need.

I overslept the breakfast so can't comment how it was. If the rate is good I could stay in this hotel again.

reception is like a 5 stars service and you feel all hospitality and personal service and many thank´s for that! But hotelrooms need facelift ASAP.. retro is back but i think it´s too much retro for me in this hotel and it´s a sad thing because everything else is so nice there..my wish to management is that DO SOMETHING TO HOTELROOMS OUTFIT PLEASE! Location is perfect super !

I stayed at Hotel Marski in October 2013, and despite of the excellent location in the heart of city center, the experience was negative.
The rooms are very old, and should definetely be modernised!
Especially the bathroom! Not much have been changed there since I visited this hotel back in 1989!
Staff at the reception were friendly and the bar area had got a "face-lifting". So that was positive.
Breakfast was very basic, as it normally is at Scandic Hotels.
In my opinion this is not a four star
hotel :-(

I recently spent my 3rd visit this year at the Marski and again was more than happy with their hospitality. I recommend this to all European visitors to Helsinki. Excellent hygiene. Breakfasts were brilliant. The bar prices were extremely reasonable.

Typical Scandic hotel. The location is perfect for shopping, bars restaurants etc. My room was clean comfortable and well maintained. Even though I was on the street side of the hotel I could not hear any traffic. The breakfast was first class and the staff friendly and helpful.
I ate in the bistro in the evening and the food was well prepared/presented and reasonably priced for Helsinki (One of the more expensive Nordic cities)
I rounded off my evening in the bar and as I am a single malt whisky fan it was a pleasant surprise to see the large selection and to be served by someone who knew a little about the product she was serving.

It is not the first time I stayed in the Scandic Marski, and this time I stayed for 4 nights.
The hotel is in the center of Helsinki, everything is at a walking distance.
The breakfast is very good, and the bar too. The staff at the reception are very eficient and very nice.
The hotel has renovated rooms and some that are rather small and runned down.
My room was very good, good size and well decorated. The bed was very good.
The bathroom has only a shower which is suficient, however the water runs straight to the floor. As the inclination of the floor is not enough, the water spreads all over the bathroom floor. It dries out rather quickly but is not nice.
The bathroom floor is heated but has no regulation, so the batroom is rather hot. In the morning it feels like a sauna.
Anyway, the hotel is a good value for the price your are asked for, I fully recommend it.

This hotel is in a great location. The staff were friendly and the breakfast were really good.

The rooms on the other hand are in a real need of an update. If the were to redecorate the rooms like other, newer Scandic hotels, this would be one of the best choices of hotels to stay in when visiting Helsinki.
