This hotel is a good choice f.ex. for them who would like to have cheaper accommodation near capital area of Finland. Location of this hotel is in the centre of the Jarvenpaa city and next to railway. There are good train connections to Helsinki, travel takes approx. 40 minutes.

This hotel is nowadays part of the Scandic hotel chain. I had a one night accommodation there in the end of July 2012. My room was quite well decorated. They had also refurbished hotel rooms (except bathroom). But after renovations and nice decoration you could still see that the hotel is quite old. The room was clean and spacious and included all the basic facilities (own bathroom, shower, free wi-fi etc.). There was also an empty mini bar. That was good place to keep your own supplies. And a lot of TV channels.

Maybe there was also air condition in the room, because room was not hot despite of sunny and warm day outside. Anyway, you couldn’t change the room temperature by yourself. If you are travelling by car there is a parking hall next to the hotel building (parking was included in the room rate). The personnel in the reception and in the breakfast restaurant were very friendly and service oriented. I had quite nice short stay there.

This is quiet a big hotel . Good for a few night . Room cleaning very poor . I've been living in this hotel for more than one year and honestly speaking they didn't treat me like a trusty customer . In overbooking situation they make me pay the extra fee with no regrets .

Personel at the desk is generally speaking friendly or at list professional .

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms are quieter

The Scandic wasn't outstanding but it certainly did the job. It is a modern, comfortable hotel with excellent facilities and friendly, helpful staff. We were just passing through for one night and for our purposes it was excellently placed just north of Helsinki. We had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and both were good.

The room was quite spacious, airy and bright. The bathroom had not been refurbished (like the rest of the room) and was very worn. We were three persons in the room, but only got two sets of towels. Not a big deal, but still. The walls are quite thin, so if you are unlucky, you might not get much sleep. The breakfast was ok… with quite a large selection. The restaurant had seen better days and the dishes were scuffed.

The hotel is right next to the Järvenpää railway station (the trains could not be heard inside the hotel) and offers free parking, so a pretty good location, if you are visiting the nearby area.

All in all, the stay was ok. However, for the price they are asking, I would probably choose another hotel next time.

We were looking for a dinner venue quite late on Thursday evening, around 20:30 that is very late in Finnish terms but finally we ended up to Scandic Restaurant. The food was excellent that was a surprise for us as often the hotel restaurants in Finland are not so good. We ate Finnish white fish called "kuha" with asparagus that was delicious. Even the wine they suggested and served by glass Alsace, French white wine, was fruity and refreshing. The only problem we found was the fact that there was a large group of people who were having drinks as we woke in and who sat down while we were expecting the menu. We noticed that the big group was being served before us that we felt was not fair.

We did not stay in the hotel so I cannot say anything about the rooms.

We had a group which was staying in the hotel, and we also had rented an auditorium - then we asked that would it be posiible to get a little more air-conditioning, but they said that the system couldn't be changed for just one room only, but not like in many other places, they arranged so that we could get a more space in our auditorium - a very good and innovative, friendly service! The whole hotel is also in other ways a good example for Scandic-quality, and the location nearby but still outside Helsinki next to lake Tuusula is absolutely great!
