Taking advantage of a promotion, I stayed at Marski by Scandic for three nights.

This recently renovated hotel is located in central Helsinki. Most sites, shopping, eateries etc are a walk (or metro stop) away. Staff spoken fluent English & were very helpful to this first time visitor to Finland.

My room was a decent size with generous storage space & a modern bathroom. Housekeeping for the most part did a good job, though they missed the dust on the glass surface above the minibar..Its central location meant noise was a factor during weekend celebrations - so take note.

I'd also like to commend their buffet breakfast as the best to date I've had at a hotel & would stay again just for it. That said, I would return during the off-peak season where room rates are similar to the promotional price I paid during my stay.

Room tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor facing away from the streets for maximum quiet

The only advantage this hotel has is that it is right in the middle of Helsinki downtown and some great sight seeing places are at stones throw from the place. Other than that, i found this hotel too expensive for the comfort and room experience.

Room Tips: Opt for rooms above the ground and with some natural light options. Bunker rooms are horrible and are promoted as good thing at the reception.

Hello 1972venkatjakkur,

Thank you for your review. We value your opinion and are sorry to hear our Sleep rooms weren't to your liking. We have several guests asking for these rooms and yet we fully understand that some people would rather have a window and a view. We are more than happy to assist our guests with a room change at the reception.
You are right on the location - it couldn't be any better. Nice to hear that brought more value to your visit!

Hopefully you will consider staying in Marski another time. In that case a Classic or a Spacious could be your choice - the view from the upper floors is amazing.

Best regards,
Maiju

I stayed one night at Marski by Scandic in August while visiting Finland for the weekend. Location is great, reception very small (maybe they should swap the bar location with the reception location for more space), staff very friendly. My room was located in the inner court with no nice view, but it was quiet and served the purpose very well. Decor was dark, but nice. Same for the restroom. I hate how Finnish hotel bathrooms don’t have shower doors that close in order not to spray the whole floor, but this shower floor I think was tilted and the water didn’t wet the floor too much. Towels were comfy and clean. I liked the water kettle in the room in order to make my own coffee. The breakfast was awesome! Just too busy and had to share a table with strangers. Would definitely stay here again!

Hello Tina E,

What a nice review you gave us, thank you for taking the time to write the feedback. We are happy to hear most of the visit was excellent and you found the room beautiful and functional! At our breakfast we have plenty of small tables just for the cause of relaxed eating and me-time. However, of course during some busier times you might have to share tables. Next time let's make sure to assign a view to your preference to make your stay even better! Have a lovely autumn and we look forward to seeing you in Marski again!

Best regards,
Maiju
