“Good for a night - great location”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Great location in middle of city center near lots of shops, sights and restaurants. Standard is not really up to price. Hair and left schampoo bottle cap in bathroom, dirty desk and so on. Breakfast is fairly ok. Will stay at another hotel in the price range next time.

The location of this hotel is just perfecto !
Just beside the Kampii Shopping centre, that also serves as a bus and tram hub, this hotel has everything going for it.
The service is excellent and also serves a decent breakfast. The dinner comes with a dinner-coupon - a very interesting concept which I never found in any other hotel across the world. You need to be a member of their Scandic hotel circle. The more you stay, the more your dinner voucher value goes up - starts with 6 Euros.
The staff is courteous indeed and also eager to help you out.

Reception staff extremely friendly and helpful. Arranged for cab to airport at 5:15 am that was right on time! Breakfast was good food and fresh fruit every day. Rooms are clean (although daily maid service is superficial). My one complaint is the light pollution from the Kampi square. Huge advertizing billboard is lit all night long. If your room is on the square side of the hotel, you never have total darkness in your room. Next time, I will ask for a room facing the street side.
Walking distance from train station and to water transports. Free wi-fi appreciated.

Spent three nights on a business trip. Service at reception was fast and polity. I had nothing to complain, perhaps the gym room could have been bigger and with more devices. The room was very quiet even the hotel is in the center of the city.

Reviewed 8 April 2014

This modern hotel is located above the Kampi metro and bus station, and only a couple of minutes walk from the train station and its' adjacent bus terminal, making it a perfect central location for visiting Helsinki whether by foot or public transportation.
Check-in and check-out at front desk were efficient enough, and staff made sure I got the room type I requested. Room was clean and decently sized (as per European standards), with all needed amenities, including free WIFI throughout the hotel. Curtains however are not totally blind, which makes it difficult to sleep if you are sensitive to light.
Food at restaurant was excellent, both at breakfast and dinner.
The only reason why I am not rating this hotel as "Excellent" is because of the outrageous 15 euro charge for room service!!!

This hotel location is great to do business, sightseeing and shopping in Helsinki.

Breakfast is ok, nothing fancy but you can find something to your desire either from the cold or hot choices.

Be aware of the parking schedule, it may be tricky on weekends if you need your car before 7:00 AM

We spend two night when visiting Don Carlos at Helsinki Opera House. As usually great service, cleaning very good, quiet and very central. Recommended. We also appreciate the big variety in the breakfast and the front desk effectivness
