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.

Helsinki, Finland

We booked this hotel for Midsummer Eve to spend most of our time in the Vallila allotment garden at our friends' cottage.

This hotel with good tram connections has the authentic and rugged spirit of the bohemian Kallio district.

We booked the best room category that is a Junior Suite. The previous time we stayed at this hotel, this room was called a Superior Family Four room.

We got our room from the top 8th floor with great views. The noises of the heavy tram traffic didn't disturb us.

The suite has a small living room. Somebody had probably broken the living room television because it had been removed. The bathroom with a shower is very small but you can find a separate toilet next to the living room. The bed was good.

The breakfast is the most modest Scandic breakfast you can find in Helsinki. Luckily, the hotel was quite empty because the breakfast room is small.

Our stay had a quite good value for 109 euros. My partner got his Scandic TOP level welcome gift and a 15 euros voucher for the lobby shop or the room's minibar.

Having stayed last week at an amazing Scandic in Copenhagen, this was really a disappointment, the single rooms are really really small and they feel a bit old. Not even a bed side table next to the bed fitted.
The bar was nice and the hotel staff was very nice.

Hi, Thank you for your review. We apologize your stay didn't quite exceed your expectations. Unfortunately the single rooms are small, but they were all renovated last year. Despite the disappointment, we hope you give us a second chance in a Standard Twin room another time as they are bigger in size and space. We wish you a nice weekend and hope to see you again!

I arrived early and they let me check in which was great. Room was really clean and had everything I needed including a fridge. Bed was comfortable and a good shower too. The reception staff were always really pleasant and spoke amazing English. The breakfast was a good spread and was tasty! Would certainly stay again…

Given that accommodation in Helsinki comes at a price, the Scandic Kallio represents decent value for money for a city break in this intriguing city. With a stop for four tram lines outside the hotel, it is easily accessible on arrival from the ferry port and railway station, and other parts of the city. Staff on reception were friendly, welcoming and efficient. Our room provided a comfortable bed with all necessary furnishings even if the bathroom and shower facilities were limited for space. The highlight was the excellent buffet breakfast which provided a wide range of cooked and cold items to suit all tastes. Within walking range of the hotel are a variety of bars and restaurants, with the Asian style establishments providing the best value.

This was already the fourth time I stayed at this hotel, but this was most probably the last one. The room offered was really undersized with hardly anywhere to hang your clothes, the tablet serving as a phone serving as the only connection to the reception was broken, the TV set was stuck and there were no instructions how to turn down the temperature in the overheated room. Only after presenting myself personally at the reception things were slowly sorted out. Still the noise from the shooting range located in the same building is something you have to be prepared to stand while staying at this hotel. However, the shooting seems to stop around 21:00.

Hotels in Scandic chain are always nice. This is no exception. Th city centre is 20 minutes ride by tram (the stop is just in the front of the hotel). Breakfast was fantastic and staff are extremely kind and helpful. Rooms are big with TV, fridge, bathroom (floor heated). Nice to have the sauna always at your disposal.

I stayed in Scandic Kallio for 8 nights at the beginning of June. The hotel has a bar open Monday to Saturday. Normal closing is 11pm, and 1am Saturday. On two of the weekday nights the bar staff told me to leave the bar as they were closing at 10:30. On Saturday night, I was told it was closing at 11:30, an hour and a half early. I told staff I was not ready to leave. Four non-guests came in about 10 minutes later so the bar stayed open. I complained about this to the manager on Monday morning. The only compensation I was offered was a free drink in the hotel bar! I declined this both because it was inadequate and I did not intend to visit that bar again.

I arrived early from Singapore but check in was 3 pm. I was too tired to go out so I rested in the lounge area. I was dozing off. The Manager, Nina, and receptionist, Jan, were very caring and helpful. Nina was concerned when she saw me and ask, "Are you ok?" When she learnt about my early arrival, she woke me up and told me my room was ready (earlier than expected).
I was given a better room on the top floor. Room was small but cosy and comfortable. I also like the sauna facility. Breakfast was superb in any Skandic hotels.
Thank you Nina and Jan.

We had a room in second floor without a window. Room was small and worn out, one lamp does not work and the bed creaked when you turned your side, also the room smelled damp. Breakfast was good and the breakfast room was fresh.
