Scandic Forssa
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Forssa
Reviewed August 16, 2012

This hotel is nice and quiet in sowntown Forssa.
The great advantage after 20 years travelling to Finland is the free underground parking in this hotel. In the winter you do not have to scrape your car-windows and can start in the warm car.

I spent 2 nights in the Scandic Forssa and first impressions were fine, nice lounge area showing London 2012 Olympics, nice reception and bar but the room was not really up to much. Curtain were falling of tracks, trouser press did not work, toilet smelt of stale water but very positive feature was size and quality of the shower, best so far on my travels

All in all, an ok hotel with some modernisation needed.

We stayed at the Scandic in Forssa for one night in July.

The hotel lobby and facade were renovated and nice, but the rooms, corridors and breakfast room were badly outdated. It could clearly be seen that the hotel has served as a popular party venue as the carpets were dirty and stained and the breakfast room still had some lights and decorations from a night club.

The room we stayed in was large, but not very convenient. There was an old leather couch which was very uncomfortable to sit in and there was a very strong smell of detergent coming from the bathroom. At night we were woken by the sounds of people returning from the night clubs to their rooms.

The garage was also inconvenient. We left the car on the low floor and had to take two different elevators and walk a long corridor to reach the hotel.

On the whole the hotel did not live up to the expectations we had for a Scandic hotel. Next time we visit Forssa we will probably go to Rantasipi which, even though outdated and located outside of the centre, provides a more "balanced" experience.

We were in the hotel at the end of November. Weather was terrible outside but it didn't spoil our stay in hotel. I think we liked most about the hotelservice, especially staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok, not bad not excellent. No air condition,so it is probably hot in summertime.

Stayed at Scandic Hotel Forssa (Pumpulienkeli) with my wife and small child for one night:

Hotel used to be quite a good one but now there is a lot to improve:

1) Hotel is unfortunately outdated and needs really renovation.
2) You can't run a hotel and restaurant with just two people on duty! This meant that there is not enough time for cleaning, filling the breakfast buffet and so on.
3) Breakfast doesn't fullfill Scandic standards - variety is almost OK but quality is not.
4) Beds need to be replaced
5) Gym was very small and there were litter

Having said this thee are still some positive things to say:

1) You can have good bargains for this hotel
2) People working there are really trying their best and it's not their fault that there are too few of them.
3) Sauna and shared Jacuzzi are quite OK
4) You can park your car for free (in a heated parking hall).
5) It was very quiet during the night :-)

We'd like to spend few days not far from Helsinki for reasonable price. Forssa is well located - abt. 100 km from Helsinki, Tampere and Turku. The price - ok, it is Scandic - it means, quality 'll be good, breakfast - excellent. It was so. As addition - free indoor parking, sauna with whirpool and smoked salmon for breakfast buffet. The view to the city-park and lake. Forssa - town is very nice - it's good place for relax - water-park is nearby. And - please, don't forget the lunch in hotel - it's over all expectations. One thing is missing - minibar in the room (hope - it's temporary)

Spent a night with 3 friends of mine in September 2011 in the hotel.

Service was really great, for example sauna was warmed up for us with after the regular hours which was perfect kick start for our evening.

Breakfast was good Scandic standard however furnitures in the room (we had family room) need some urgent attention!
