I stayed one night and liked this hotel. Everything is new and clean. Loved the interior. Good service at reception. they let me choose between a room with bath or shower. Free wifi. If you walk here from railway station, you have to climb stairs. I was missing something to clean my shoes with.

Dear Osopequena,

Thank you for your stay at Scandic Tampere Station and writing a good review. Nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. The tunnel on south side of the railway station has also the elevator for easier access to the street we´re located. And shoe policing device can be found on every floor, behind the glass wall opposite the elevators.

Have a great day and welcome again!

Best regards,
Mikko M

I stayed here for business for one night. The hotel is all new and very stylish. Reception staff is very friendly and courteous. Rooms are typical size for Finland but have great interior design and good amenities. Showers are excellent. Beds comfortable but pillows a bit too high for my taste. Free wifi everywhere in the hotel. Breakfast is regular Finnish standard but with good, crispy bacon and some specialties like Carelian pastries and black sausage. There is a small and functional gym with one treadmill, cross-trainer and a sauna (in the evenings, mornings only during weekend) and some other machines. As loyal customer for Scandic you get a 6 euro voucher for food or drinks at the hotel (doesn't apply for potato chips though). All in all a very good choice for stylish business travel to Tampere. In my opinion the best option in the city!

I stayed at this hotel for one night. Since I have stayed here in November, I knew what to expect. This time I was given a more spacious room, there was a extra chair and side table. I liked the room way better, this room had a shower stall instead of bath tub. Very friendly service and attentive staff. Breakfast was great as usual. Will go here again, probably soon.

Me and my wife stayed here for 2 nights - 1 weekend and that time hotel was pretty new and fresh.

Service was nice and things were working.

Rooms were clean and cozy. We had a garage for our car and its quite small, but works just fine.

Breakfast was plain and simple and the location could be better.

View was pretty good, since the hotel is quite high, but its all up to luck which floor you will get your room on.

All together just one of many others and due to location we could choose anotherone next time.

Nice clean new hotel. Not crowded the time I was there (Tuesday to Thursday). Plenty of room at restaurant and in morning at the breakfast. Food was good and personnel kind.
I choose the hotel by mistake due to their name but was not disappointed, liked the hotel in all ways.
The name is Scandic Station and I believed it was the hotel next to the railway station but that’s the other Scandic, Scandic City.

Stayed here for one night with my husband while on a mini-break to Tampere. Overall, the hotel was great and I would stay again were I to visit Tampere. The hotel overall was new and fresh, as was the room. Service was surprisingly friendly and we even had a complimentary small bottle of cava as well as some chocolates, macaroons and fruit waiting for us in our room as a surprise treat (we were celebrating my husband’s birthday). We’ve only experienced this abroad before, so it was a very nice touch.

Had breakfast in our room, which came with a hefty surcharge. Breakfast was your typical Finnish fare with breads, veggies, yogurt, cheese and ham. We added scrambled eggs and sausages for an extra charge. It did the job but wasn’t particularly exciting or noteworthy and seemed to be more about quantity than quality.

The reasons (and these aren’t huge) preventing me giving full points to the hotel are the following:
- location. It’s very convenient to the train station but other than that it’s a bit of a hike (manageable, but still a bit of a walk) into the town center, especially compared to the locations of some of the other hotels.
- room cleanliness. The hotel, and obviously also the room, are brand new and felt like it but the room hadn’t been cleaned properly. There was dust, and other things, in the corners and underneath the chair in the room. This didn’t detract significantly from the overall feel of a fresh room (and the bed linen was extremely crisp and clean), but it felt silly that this small thing prevented the room from being relatively perfect.
- Lighting in the common areas. Probably designed to look very modern and hip but I had to stay away so as not to induce a migraine attack. The neon lights (especially the hot pink) could be toned down slightly, at least during the day time.
- No free umbrellas. It was pouring down with rain but the concierge only had umbrellas for sale (!). This is probably part of the Scandic way of doing things, but felt very low-budget.

Hi Boarding_gate 123!

Thank you very much for your stay at Scandic Tampere Station and your kind review.
I´m sorry about the sloppy cleaning in your room. We will go this through with the housekeepers. It is aprox 300 meters to the Hämeenkatu (main street of Tampere), so I think we have as excellent location as the other hotels in the city center, of course it depends where you are going. The bright pink lights are part of the desing. I´m really sorry, if those made you feel uncomfortable. It´s true that we do ot have umbrellas to borrow, but maybe we can fix that for your next stay. I hope we can see you soon again. Welcome!

Kind regards,
Mikko M

I had a one night stay at this hotel in November 2013. Hotel is new and modern with excellent location in the center of Tampere.

Few remarks:
+ Location is good f.ex. for train passengers
+ Spacious noise isolated rooms and modern decor.
+ Parking hall available for car passangers
+ Tasty complimentary buffet breakfast with lots of different courses

Maybe the biggest problem during my stay there was that, the room was too warm. You couldn’t change the room temperature at all and it was quite hard to sleep. Maybe the air condition is not running in the rooms during the winter time ? Furthermore, mini bar prices were quite expensive. Also, some may like the modern decoration/interior in the room and in the bathroom but I think room was quite sterile and not very cozy.

I could stay there again but maybe next time I’ll go somewhere else. In the center area of Tampere there are many other good hotels.

Dear FinlandFinn,

Thank you for your stay at Scandic Tampere Station and your review. We truely have good location in the city center as you said. I´m sorry to hear your room was too warm. Air conditioining is on also on winter, but with the lower level. You can change the room temperature +/- 1 degree with the switch on the wall. Minibar prices are newer very low in any hotel, but how comfortable it is, to have something on just that time you want it.

Have a nice year 2014 and welcome soon again!

Best regards,
Mikko M
