“Very good!!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We stayed here for 6 nights and couldn`t be happier. Friendly staff, large room compared to other hotels we have stayed at(even though it was the cheapest room), awesome design..I loved the black and red walls and the Top Hat Lamps:) The bathroom was lovely, good to have the shower separated with a door so the floor on the rest of the bathroom didn`t get wet. Very nice to have our own balcony and be able to get some fresh air into the room. The AirCondition worked well. And the breakfast was AMAZING! I loved the pancakes and those small pastries with vanilla cream inside. The crispy bacon and scrambled eggs was to die for. There could have been a better selection of cold drinks and the apple/orange juice could have been sweeter for my taste, but all in all it was quite perfect:)
Cleaning could have been a tiny bit better. There was a coffee mug stain on the bathroom sink when we checked in and on the balcony table there was a dirty mug and wineglass from the previous guests. And better dusting in general on the not so obvious spots could be nice..(I work in the cleaning-industry myself so I might be picky;) )
And make sure to throw the bathtowels on the floor if you want new ones. The first days we got new ones even if we hung the used ones on the wall, but then one day we didn`t, so after that we just threw them on the floor and everything worked fine.
We ate in the restaurant in the backyard once and it was quite nice. My pizza was very tasty.
The free WiFi worked excellent!
All in all we were very happy about our stay and would easily recommend the hotel to others!

Third time at Paasi and our expectations were met once again. The friendliness and sense of customer service of the staff never seizes to amaze me at this place. Extra points to breakfast this time: fresh cherries, nice music and all the organic foods there, well done!

This was our second stay in this hotel this year and we loved it!

Not much to add to my previous review: room was good size with a kitchenette, the hotel is a short walk away from city centre and near to public transport links.

Service and staff were great from the moment we checked in. Erica at the reception made us feel very welcome: she showed us two rooms we could choose from, she was always smiling and happy with all the customers.

We would be very happy to stay in Hotel Paasi again!

We spent 2 nights over the long mid-summer festival (20, 21 June)
We arrived from Singapore on an early morning flight but were given a room once we reached at 8 am. The room was big with a lovely balcony. The staff were really helpful and always cheerful .
The breakfast is awesome , so much to choose from. The location is perfect too direct bus from the airport and a nice walk to Senate square.
A really good address in Helsinki .

My partner and I enjoyed our four-night stay at the Scandic Paasi over the Midsummer's Eve holiday. The hotel is stylish, modern, and comfortable, and it's located in a nice, quiet neighborhood (albeit a little sleepy and out of the way...it takes 15-20 minutes to walk to central Helsinki). The breakfast buffet was good, with plenty of tasty items to choose from; the beds were comfy; the shower/tub was great (although the glass partition didn't do a very good job of keeping the water off the floor); and the staff were consistently personable and helpful. Our only real complaint was with the housekeeping, which seemed a little haphazard. Some days were fine and others it seemed like they whizzed through our room in 30 seconds, just long enough to throw the bed cover over the wrinkled sheets. Also, the lack of a phone in the room was confounding. On a couple of occasions we wanted to call down to the front desk to ask a question, but we had to walk down there instead, which wasn't a huge deal because it was just one floor down. Still, it kind of gives the impression that the staff don't want to address guests' questions/issues, which isn't the impression they give when you interact with them face to face. But these complaints are pretty minor. Overall, the Scandic Paasi is definitely worth a try the next time you're in Helsinki.

Dear briguy2006,
It was a big pleasure to have you as our guest at Scandic Paasi. Thank you so much for sharing your story with other readers, so kind of you. How sad we are to hear that you had to walk to reception to get service. There should be a telephone in every room. We are so terribly sorry you did not have. Our mistake, please forgive us. We feel so embarrassed to read about the daily cleaning. It was not at all according our standards and values. Thank you so much for giving us a new try in the future. We are looking forward to meet you soon again. You are so warmly welcome!

This hotel was great fun, we even had a punching bag in our room. Great price for the amenities, the location and the service. Lounge, ipad lounge, designer and snack store, small bar and free bikes, there is something here for everyone. Moreover, we were steps from a water inlet, near to the park and only minutes away from either market square or Finlandia hall and the Kallio neighborhood in the north. The breakfast buffet offered several options, we had 3 breakfasts and we were able to choose something different and fun every day - several vegetarian options (organic, vegan, etc, - they have it) . The room was big and the bathrooms were a designer's heaven.

What would I do better? The free bikes are great but it will be awesome if they could get a few more.
