.. you can find Scandic Hotel Simonkenttä. It's near of railway station. Bus terminal is next to it. Also the big shopping centres like Forum and Kamppi. If you like to go out dinner, coffee or cultural happenings it's near to everything. For example Tennispalatsi (cinema) you can almost see from the window.

Close enough to everything a tourist needs. Our room faces the Kamppi square and a good view of the Kamppi Chapel of Silence. Rather small room. The smallest shower space ever met in hotels. Breakfast is great in variety and quality. The luggage storage service is probably below standard. They told you to put your luggage into a room the receptionists control but seems to me that they will open the door to any one who ask. You do not have a tag to claim the bags. Just ask and they will open the door of the luggage room.

Visited Helsinki November 8. to 11. and stay at Scandic Simonkentta for the second time. From the airport with Finnair Bus to railway station and less than 5 minutes walk you are at the hotel. The bus is 30 minutes and leaves from stand 10 will cost you about 6-7 EUROs. This is about 1/5 of a taxi and takes almost the same time.
The hotel has very nice rooms, fine bar and restaurant. Breakfast is excellent and you can sit with a nice view to the big place beside the hotel. Service is very good.
Big shopping centers as neighbors and many restaurants around. Everything is very close.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view to the big place.

We were at the Marski 6 years ago in Helsinki and this time the Simonkentta had the better pay in advance deal. Super close to the train station and a million other things in the center of town including that nice outdoor market with all sorts of food. Good breakfast if a bit of a zoo. Decent lounge, pleasant check in, clean rooms, decent TV (if a bit weird to figure out the channels), happy with this choice.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights in Oct 2013.
Excellent location for visiting the city, just at a walking distance from the main touristic points. There is a street market in the plaza just behind the hotel, with artisan foods from many different countries. A variety of stores and restaurants in the vicinity.
Quiet room, well equipped with lots of power outlets, an iron machine with board (very rare in European hotels), nice bathroom. Internet worked well.
Excellent breakfast buffet. Excellent taxi service, that you can arrange the night before your departure.
Courteous and well trained front desk clerks.

Have just had my 3rd visit. Simply love the location, which is right at the center of everything. Everything fully lives up to my expecations in the hotel. One particular thing to highlight could be the Wifi connections. I am a seasoned traveller, and I have had many negative experiences with complicated setups. Not at this hotel though, you simply connect and you may surf. No need to re-enter passwords, room number, last name or anything. Breakfast was nice, lots of variety. I will definitely love to come back again.

The room we had was quite basic, but very nice. A bit small though.
It was in the 1st floor, facing the road, but we weren't interrupted by the noise.
The hotel is in a good overall condition.
We were in the hotel's sauna and gym, which were both very nice, quiet and in a good condition.
The breakfast was REALLY great, with a very diversified menu and high quality food.
The location of it is really good, as there's a tram stop just outside the hotel's door. The central station is also just a few minutes walk, and there's a shopping mall, restaurant and bars just around the corner.
We were very satisfied with this hotel, especially considering the low price (in comparison with Helsinki...). We would definitely stay there again.
