Scandic Tampere City has an ubeatable location as it's situated just outside the Tampere railway station. The hotel is the reliable Scandic-quality, but the rooms are a bit outdated and the restaurant surely needs renovation. I would recommend a stay in the Scandic Tampere Station instead. Service is ok, and the breakfast buffet sumptuous, as always in Scandic.

I have been frequent visitor for this hotel for years and consider it an average Scandic. For many reasons it has been one of the key choices when coming to Tampere.

Main shopping street is around the corner,...

Reception was very efficient and friendly. The rooms are basic and though we were in a superior room the cleaning was anything but ... First morning the bed was made haphazardly the cups not changed. The following night the dirty cups were not changed had new ones brought up but one was dirty with a coffee/tea ring on the inside!...

The hotel is well located by the railway station, close to the biggest department store in town. The room was clean and basic, but nothing special. Good, tasty breakfast with a lot of choices (several breads and cold cuts, local black sausage, falafel with tsatsiki, eggs).
