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.

Hotel's Favourite
4.0 of 5 bubbles
Superbly situated on tram, subway, and bus lines and only a five minutes walk to the central railway station. All tourist sites are within easy walk. Breakfast spread is large; buffet style. Lot of sitting places and the large glass windows overlook the street. You can eat up enough to avoid a lunch! Spa hours are separate for men and women. Wi-fi is reliable and no password is needed. Rooms are small but bathroom was smaller still. Will stay again for location and breakfast.

Excelent location - just 3-4 minutes walking distance from central railway station, tram stop in front of the hotel door.
Breakfast was ok, rather rich offer, however coffe was too sour for me.
But unfortunately can not recomend this hotel because of terrible condition of premises and equipment. Everything in the room was so dilapidated and even broken. The hotel does not correspond to the level of four stars at all! At least what we understand with four stars in Latvia.

While the Scandic hotels usually provide a certain quality, this hotel surprised me with their out-of-date bathroom and quite a poor breakfast. The standard room does not have any mini bar nor coffe/tea amenities.

The best feature is their location especially to those who come or go to the railwaystation, or planning to visit the National Theatre. Also the very heart of the city is at the walking distance.

We stayed one night at Scandic Kaisaniemi and enjoyed the comfort of a huge family room with a double bed plus three sofa beds. It was not necessarily luxurious but had all the bells and whistles you expect of a Scandic hotel, and frankly, all you need. The kids loved it and also went all-in for the buffet breakfast. The location could not be better at the very heart of Helsinki. We left the hotel well rested and happy!

This place really underperformed. I thought it was safe to book any Scandic but this was just very worn and outdated. Room was ugly and not at all cozy. Bathroom looked like something that had not been renovated from the 90´s. Plastic furniture made it feel like an old train cabin.

The room was somewhat clean but the common areas did not feel fresh and clean at all.

On top of that, I had some very loud sounds from the room next door in the middle of the night. Also lots of noises from the street (however that I would have expected from a hotel so central so not a big problem).

Breakfast was ok, not more than that. The breakfast room felt like a cantina in a school and was not at all pleasant to sit in.

I have statyed at several hotel in the area and you do not have to pay much extra to get something much nicer. I really wish I would have spent that 50€ extra for a better experience.

Scandic should really consider renovating this place. It does not live up to the expected Scandic standard.

Probably the worse hotel stay I ever had
this is nothing like other Scandic hotels, curtains have holes, rooms are very noisy. I could hear water noise all the night, personnel was mostly rude. Location was good but that was the only plus.

I was making brief stop before heading to meeting and was taking short shover... or so I think. Hot water runs out just when I get myself all over shampoo! So need to wash out in hand wash stall what did give hot water... expect that got clogged! So quite irritadet and already running late run down and told this to reception. "We change your room" was only solution but since I was already late and all my staff was in old one I told and 'cause I come back at night and was taking morning flight I dont wanna take my sleeping time to re-packing and moving. No sorryes, no any kind of refund... cold shover, handstall full of water and really noisy air condition with cold air. Never again this one! Couple our bad sleep and cranky travel to airport was all I get!

Quite basic hotel on great location. Normally Scandic has treated me nicely but this time they dumbed us into room for two + 1 extra bed ... although we paid for "Superior 4 person room" ... I have stayed on this hotel multiple times and it offers normally good value for money. This review criticizes this last stay - normally I would have given 3 or 4 stars out of 5.

I thought this was a great location near senate square and near the shopping/food and train station/ It really cant get to much better of a location, the only negative is this had to be the smallest shower area I have ever had(pic attached). The staff was nice and helpful. The breakfast i suggest going early its a big room but it sure does fill up fast. I thought the breakfast for was average at best but ity was free so thats a plus. Would I stay here again hard to say with such a small shower area but other than that I enjoyed this hotel location and such. I really dont want to be negative about this place.

Hi, Usually the decoration and layout of the rooms are not the same in the hotel as the bathroom as well. My bathroom hadn't glass walled, maybe in other room they can offer it. If it is available in the hotel, you can request it :) Enjoy your trip!!!
