Helsinki great place to visit the hotel is nice and very clean and comforting. Breakfast is good and well presented. A bit far from the center 25 mins walk but in -18c is uncomfortable but would be great in better temperature. The staff are helpful too. The hotel is pet friendly so do be warned that should dogs located on the same floor it could be noisy and I pleasant as I experienced.

Would not book again due to this but should you be an animal lover I guess you can put up with it.

Great location, excellent staff and customer service, let down by the 'tiredness' of the rooms. Nothing wrong, exactly, just old and worn - very 1990s - and needing a refresh to 21st century standards. Otherwise great value for money and perfect for a city break.

Room Tip: Rooms on the South side (front) look out on Stockmann, the top end of the Esplanadi and the Svenski...

Well, in February of 2014 I stayed my sixth or seventh time in “Scandic Marski” hotel in Helsinki, Finland since December 2011. That hotel already became something like my second home. 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 standard double room. 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 but with time without bathtub, instead there was shower cabin. 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.
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!

Stayed 1 night at this hotel. Main attraction is the hotel is quite central, handy for station & Finnair city bus offering transit to/from airport for €6.30. Breakfast (included) was very nice including various types of herrings. Gym was small but usable including various machines. Room was rather small and over warm - I had to open the vents. Perhaps this was due to unseasonably mild winter weather.

Whatever this hotel is in the center of the city, near the shops and the train station, rooms are very quiet. Wide and clean rooms with TV and minibar. The breakfast is a complete buffet with a large choice of bread and meals. I did not tested the restaurant

This Scandic hotel is situated right in the middle of city centre with a lot of restaurants in the neighborhood .
It's just across the street from Stockmanns and Svenska Teatern.
Breakfast was very good.

Room Tip: Could be a good advise to ask for a room with a view inside the garden to avoid the traffic noise .

Have spent several nights in this hotel either because of work or leisure or with family and now must say something negative. I booked the room from their website as always.
The room was quite big with big windows to street but that extra bed (couch) was terrible! Never ever had anything like that. Kids couldn't sleep on it barely their mother.
When you used shower or bath the sewer didn't work and all the water came on the floor.
Our room was in another building, not in main building and it took a few minute walk from the elevator EVEN I had asked a room near lifts. Of course it's understandable if they're full booked..
Otherwise the 1 night stay was ok and the breakfast was good as always. The location of this hotel is the best of all but it's getting older and older all the time and unfortunately it shows in the rooms.
Lately I've stayed in other hotels.. Maybe some day in this one again!
