Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

During some rainy February days in Helsinki this was the perfect hotel with its colorful cheerfully designed lobby for my family with 2 kids. We found perfect locations for dinner within walking distance of the hotel. It was only a few stops from the nearby metro and tram station to the center. The breakfast room does not have daylight, but there is plenty on offer, even for health-conscious connoisseurs. Our kids liked the play space. While the week in Finland was quite expensive overall, our stay at this hotel was qzite a bargain in comparison.

Perfect location to explore Helsinki with plenty of buses , trams and metro right outside the hotel , also the bus 615 to the airport stops there, the main railway station is merely a 10 minutes walk .You’ll find also plenty of restaurants, bars and a 24 hour supermarket in the vicinity. The main nightlife district is about 15 minutes walk away .Nevertheless the hotel is located in a quiet street with almost no traffic . My room was of a good size with plenty of room to hang my clothes , there was also a fridge .Windows cannot be opened but the ventilation system was not annoying as in other hotels and was easily adjusted .Internet worked well but you are asked to log in several times during the stay . The bed was very comfortable.The hotel staff were very welcoming and friendly

This was probably our 10th stay at this hotel. This time we booked a Superior Plus room for two nights for 135 euros per night.

As my partner is a Scandic TOP-level member, he got 2 x 15 euros restaurant vouchers and a welcome gift was waiting in the room on arrival.

Our room was very spacious. It was probably one of the biggest in this category (30-49 m²). There was a sauna as requested.

The hotel was not full and it was pleasantly calm in the breakfast on both mornings.

My husband and I were impressed with the friendly staff. We came straight from the airport for an overnight lather and arrived to the hotel before the check in time, figuring we’d leave our luggage in storage and then start sight seeing. To our surprise, our room was ready so we were able to go check in. The location of the hotel is perfect, especially if you plan on using public transportation. Our flight out was early the next morning (7:00) and the staff informed us we would be able to get breakfast before we leave. We were once again surprised when we checked out in the lobby at 4:00 that morning, because we had a nice buffet spread to choose from for our breakfast. We were extremely pleased with Scandic Paasi. It made our short time in Helsinki very sweet.

I have often stayed in Scandic Hotels, so there was nothing new in the concept. This hotel is relatively new and the rooms have some kind of circus theme with colourful details.

In general, the hotel is good but I had some issues with rooms, especially temperatures. The corner room where I stayed first was cold, less than 18 degrees. Then I changed to another room where the temperature stayed at 23 degrees despite my trying to decrease it. That was good enough and I didn't spend much time in the room anyway.

Otherwise, the room was comfortable and clean. Some time in the night there was some noise probably coming from the old pipes of the building. It seems that the cleaner changed my towels every day although I left them in the hook which was supposed to mean I continue using them.

The buffet breakfast was practical and the time was long enough to start early or late. The personnel was very helpful. I like the location near Kallio area, Hakaniemi market and the metro station.

My bathroom was not properly cleaned - the mirror was dirty and the garbage from the previous guest was not emptied. After indicating it got cleaned. It was not possible to lower the temperature below 21C and was not possible to open windows.
The breakfast is nice and as well the staff.

We have stayed many times at this hotel in Hakaniemi, a 15-minute walk from the city center. The interior decor is personally unique with three different themes: Leisure, Spectacular, and Conscious.

This time we booked a Superior Sauna room because it has a balcony. On arrival, they tried to upgrade us to a Superior Plus room because of my partner's Scandic TOP level membership. However, we wanted to keep our original booking because of the balcony.

Seven Superior Sauna rooms are located on the top 6th floor of the reception building. These rooms have leisure-themed decor. The most prominent thing is a small punching bag. The overall decor is on the dark side. The bathroom lighting could have been brighter.

We got the best Superior Sauna room #624 which has just one balcony neighbor and the other wall next to the old spectacular wing was low to ensure more panoramic views.

The weather was warm and sunny. So we spent a lot of time on the balcony. In the wintertime, I would prefer a Superior Plus room with a sauna. They have a much more spacious interior. The spectacular themed interior is also brighter.

The breakfast was pleasantly calm and well-handled as always.

The reception staff was friendly.

We have stayed many times at this hotel. Now we booked a standard room for 104 euros at a senior rate. As my partner is a Scandic TOP Level member, we were upgraded to a superior room.

Superior rooms are located in the old wing and they have the 'Spectacular' decor including the black-white circus-themed wallpaper.

We got one of the best superior rooms from the top 6th floor. Our room has probably been a previous Superior Extra room. We could find hair conditioner and body lotion from the bathroom. They are not usually included in Scandic superior rooms. Also, there were bathrobes that is always nice.

It was a complete surprise to us not to find a kettle in our room. Even most Scandic standard rooms have it.

The reception staff on our arrival was very inexperienced. They had trouble making the room keys, printing out the TOP Level restaurant voucher, and making drinks in the lobby bar. It is quite unbelievable that somebody working in the bar doesn't know how to make a gin tonic. Fortunately, they had written instructions for that.

Also, the reception staff didn't know that Juttutupa restaurant in the same building is cooperating with the hotel. You can use the restaurant voucher there and put the bill to the room bill to get Scandic points. All doors were closed to get to the restaurant from inside. On the way back, one waiter opened the doors for us and we didn't have to go through the rain back to the hotel.

The breakfast was handled well as usual and also the checkout.

A relaxing vacation in the heart of Helsinki.
We had booked a room with a private sauna and it was a great choice. We were able to take a sauna in peace and relax, which is exactly what we had come for.
The room was located on the top floor of the hotel, so there was a nice view over the rooftops of Helsinki. In addition, the sounds of the traffic could not be heard in the room at all.
Our room was spacious and well decorated, the wallpaper had the same patterns as the hotel room doors.
There were many good options for breakfast, so everyone could find something to eat and there was no need to leave the hotel hungry to continue the day.
The staff was friendly and advised everything needed.
There are limited parking spaces at the hotel, all their spaces were reserved in the parking garage, but we were able to park the car in the yard for the evening and the next morning, which was fine for us.

In March, this Scandic hotel had a point offer of -50%. So one night was just 10000 points. To get this amount of points, you need to stay four nights costing around 120 euros per night. So it was easy to achieve.

Point nights are usually for a standard room but my partner is a Scandic TOP Level member and we were upgraded to a superior room. The member price for that room would have been 202 euros.

We got the same superior room #638 as last time. It is a nice room with an excellent bathtub. However, we missed coffee-making facilities also this time.

Scandic should have the same standards at every hotel. In Helsinki, superior rooms at Grand Marina have coffee-making facilities but no bathrobes. At Paasi you have bathrobes. At Simonkenttä, Marski, Hub, and Grand Central, you will get both coffee and bathrobes.

The breakfast was excellent. The food selection is very wide. Probably the best we have seen at any Scandic hotels and we have seen them quite many.

Hello Is it bus 615 ? Is it easy to find at the airport? Also how do we know when to get off? Thanks Elaine
Yes, it’s just from the exit of terminal two, there’s public bus signs at the exit door. Once you go outside, there’s a few lanes of bus stop, cross the first road and you could find stop 615. Bus runs every half an hour from airport to city. Bus punctual. You can pay cash to driver or buy ticket from machine at stop. Takes 15 stops to Hakaniemi. Get off the bus, going straight to the corner of McDonald, turns right walk two to three minutes. Scardic Paasi in front of you

It is about 3,5 km to Lansisatama (West Harbour) from Scandic Paasi, 45 minute walk. Tram number 7 goes close by (a couple of minutes walk) the Scandic Paasi to the harbour. Search HSL (Helsinki region transportation) for more information for the timetables.
