“What a New Year´s Eve!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

We spent the New Year´s Eve at Scandic Paasi with my husband 31.12.13-1.1.14 and truly enjoyed our stay. This place is not a typical scandinavian style hotel with the harmonic brown, grey and white -decoration. Paasi is a story-hotel with strong colors and circus-theme. We had a Superior plus room with the spectacular-theme which means there was a nice luxury-flavor with king size -bed, sofas and small kitchen in the corner. I think this 40-49 m2 size room was just like a suite. And still the price was very reasonable for a New Year´s Eve (192 €). Also the breakfast was very tastefull and the staff friendly. I could come back any time.

This is a very nice, relatively new hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff, great location close to the center city and to all transportation modes. (Hakaniemi, which is a stop on the airport bus, the metro, and many bus and tram lines, is a block away.) Outstanding buffet breakfast. The hotel is very much a modern design hotel, and I was afraid it would be the kind of place where the design is over the top and gets in the way. But it wasn’t; it was very functional and comfortable. I would absolutely choose this hotel again.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and I can say that it was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in my life. Not only its wonderful location but also its helpful staff are its advantages. When you get to the hotel, you are given a voucher per day to spend it at the restaurants or the hotel bar and shop. Amazing help if you have things to do around!

My girl and I spent three wonderful nights in this great hotel and this made our holiday special. We had a large elegant and very comfortable room with a balcony and private sauna all to ourselves. The welcome was awesome and the staff unbelievably friendly. The interior design is great especially the in the reception. The highest point of my stay was the delightful breakfast buffet, which came with lots of delicious pieces to choices from. Located slightly away from the noisy city center we had a lovely quite stay devoid of noise destruction. I recommend this hotel as I am looking forward to my next visit.

Overall the hotel service and staff did a good job, but the hotel decor was to odd, black leather decorations a boxing bouncing ball in the hotel room and red hart shaped bed pillows.

I do not recommend this hotel for business travelers, but couples and families might find it okay.

Dear rophome,
How very unfortunate that our interior design did not attract you in a positive way. You experienced theme called "leisure". As a story-hotel we have three different interier design themes at Scandic Paasi for our guests to choose from. Each theme is telling stories with it's decor about the area where we are located, it's colorful personalities from the past, and historically important achievements or happenings during the past 150 years. For your next visit we would like to recommend you a theme called "conscious" in our 2010's building. We believe you might experience that decor more familiar and interesting for you. We hope so very much to get a second chance, and to be able to welcome you again to Scandic Paasi!

We spent in the hotel two wonderful nights, and the hotel became our favorite in Helsinki. We got not very large room at the top floor, but it had a balcony and private sauna. Hotel is very clean and quiet, breakfast was just great, nothing to complain about. Location is a bit far from the center but the hotel worth 15 min walk or 3 min ride. Surely we'll come back again.

I liked this hotel, I stayed with a friend one night in a double room. Great central location. Nice welcoming staff. The interior design is cool with a circus theme in the reception but not so special in the rooms. The best part was the breakfast buffet, a lot of good stuff to choose from including finnish specialties. Clean quiet room.
