“Standard Scandic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

This hotell is in the absolute center of Helsinki with only few meters walk to the best known sites. Scandic is in my mind a chain where you know what you get - not more, not less and it works for me. The rooms are big enough and the beds are fine. Breakfast is a plus, but the breakfast place tend to be a bit overcrowded. Friendly staff makes you feel welcome. trainingcenter available and so is a sauna (it's Finland).

Stayed here one night on my way to north. The location is perfect and rooms are pretty ok. Met a friend in Helsinki and returned to hotel around mid night to get some sleep before catching the red eye flight. But no sleep that night! Up to 4 am the night club located next door shopping center kept me awake; reminded me about the student time budget hotels above disco. But that was 30 years ago. After the music stopped, the people in front of the night club kept me awake for the next hour. They finally got tired and went home. But then the street cleaners started their shift. And then it was time to leave to the airport. As a zombie. Lesson to be learned: If you build a hotel in the middle of the town, build it with sound isolated windows same way as the airport hotels do. On my way back, I stayed in Hilton airport. Window towards runway. And I slept like a baby. Technology is there, Scandic!

Room Tip: In case you want to sleep, get the room that is not towards Kamppi shopping center. Others cannot be...

Location of this hotel is excellent,walking distance to City Centre,Raliway Station and Bust/Tram stops...shops at near vicinity too....Hotel`s breakfast is sumptous and wonderful with too many options to choose from, staff is helpful and practical,Complimentary Wi-fi works just fine with terrific speed. They also have smoking rooms if you ask for it. Overall a pretty comfortable and modern hotel to spend time in a wonderful city that Helsinki is...highly recommended.

The rooms were clean and in ok-condition and the bathroom good. The location of this hotel is excellent, near shops, bars and the railway station. The breakfast was also really good. :)

The only thing I would change was the pillows - worst ever.

Very good, efficient reception staff. Room was upgraded to a superior with queen bed, still smallish with single mattresses, but okay- main problem was with pillows, very thin with a hard neck roll, needed at least 2 pillows! Good wifi.

Breakfast was fine, nothing made to order, but a decent selection and a very nice location.

Great location just up from the central station.

Arrived on a snowy afternoon of February. The lobby is simple. Front desk people are efficient and pratical. Do not expect anything more. Rooms are relatively small like most European hotels but practical. The hotel has used woods extensively in the rooms. Beds and pillows are comfortable. Nothing fancy in the bathroom. Only a small space for shower. However, not enough room to keep clothes. Breakfast spread was great, difficult for weight watchers like me check. Seen people loading their plates in ounces of butter. The best part of the hotel is access to major attractions. The conventions center, Finlandiahall is at a walking distance. Wi Fi was complimentary.

Room Tip: I liked the room facing the city on West side
