Reviewed 25 February 2011

The Hotel is in a very good location close to Helsinki city center and it is visible from the highway specially because it has lights that change colours projected on the exterior walls.
The rooms are very comfortable and the saunas are nice. The swimming pool, maybe because it was winter, had not so good smell and water quality was questionable.
Staff are very nice and there is always restaurant a bar and shop if you need to buy anything at any time of the day, mostly food and hygiene stuff.

This is a very typical Scandic hotel. The food is average and up to the usual scandic standard.
The rooms are fine if a little dated in the bathrooms. Overal, fine a couple of nights

This is a typical business hotel, near the airport/motorway/business area of Espoo. The rooms are comfortable and clean. I missed a bit of a personal touch in this very high and big building.
Breakfast was a hugh buffet on the ground floor. Personnel at the reception was nice

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights for a work conference at the hotel. The check-in process was very easy.

The main complaint that I have about this hotel is that it was very warm in June and the hotel claimed it had air conditioning, but it was so hot in the room. The windows don't open, well there is a small opening on the far right and left, but you have to leave your curtains completely open to get the air. However, with 22 hours or daylight, my room light was like high noon when I was trying to sleep. I complained about it to the front desk twice and they said the A/C was working. I told them it was not. They just shrugged and said there was nothing they could do. I asked for a fan, they said they didn't have one.

Also in my meetings in the hotel, it was very hot and everyone thought so. The hotel said that air con was on, nothing they could do. I think this is ridiculous.

The room had an A/C controller and you would turn the dial to the lowest setting the "-' and you would never hear it turn on and I never felt any air blowing from the vent. No air coming from vent = A/C not working.

The food at the restaurant was just "ok". I ordered chicken and it had a fishy taste, which indicates it was cooked on the same surface or oil as fish. I am allergic to fish. The breakfast buffet was also just a typical european style foods.

The daily housekeeping service left something to be desired. The beds were sloppily made and they did not pick up things off of the floor. For example, a water bottle cap fell on the floor near the trash can and they just left it there. I left it there for 4 days to see if they would pick it up and they did not. The shower had mold and looked dirty.

I would not stay at this hotel again.

Stayed in this hotel during a business trip to Espoo which is a city next to Helsinki, Finland. The hotel is just 25 min from Helsinki airport and by a busy motorway to Helsinki. This hotel is one of the nicer Scandics I've stayed in. There is a clean modern feel to it and my room was clean and in good condition. The room had similar airconditioning as the Helsinki Hilton Kalastajatorppa which is very hard to adjust and just too cold. There is a sauna on the top floor with a swimming pool which was nice and some gym equipment which were crap. I liked the restaurant with its mid-priced menu.
