“Simply great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Excellent base to discover Jyväskylä and its surroundings. A nice hotel just by the train/bus station and very central to get around the city. The standard room was spacious and clean as well as the bathroom. Bed was comfortable and very big giving a good rest after a busy day. Breakfast buffet is excellent with a great selection of cold and hot dishes and there is a restaurant and bar downstairs as well. In Scandic shop you can buy some snacks and drinks any time during your stay and there was a minibar in the room as well. There is also a possibility to go to sauna and a carage to park.
Staff extremely friendly and made us feel Super welcome during the whole stay! Scandic Jyväskylä is definitely great value for money and I'd warmly recommend this hotel to everyone who values comfort and friendliness in a central location.

Stayed here consecutive weeks in two different standard rooms. Both were exceptionally nice for a Scandic and as good as new. Outside parking was free. The sauna and pool are really nice. The breakfast restaurant is separate from the evening restaurant.Well, the reception area could be nicer and the gym a bit bigger. After a week you get tired of the same breakfasts.But these are minor gripes. For a normal Nordic chain hotel, this gets five stars for sure.

Stayed here on business for one night. The hotel is less than 100 metres from the train station making travel very easy and inexpensive. The staff were excellent. The room was large and well maintained. There are two restaurants on sight a good quality resturant with excellent selections available and a lower cost pub bar food style resturant. Both were tried and found to be acceptable. Breakfast is simple and straight forward with a varied selection of hot and cold dishes.
All in all I will definitely stay here again!

Scandic has been my hotel in Jyväskylä since opening early -90. Good location, rooms are large and reception friendly. In the winter time it is nice that they have the warm carage there to park.
You can see that the hotel has been built with the high quality materials, but now you can easily notice that the best days are behind. Everything is still working.

This place is OK but they have taken the wrong turn that many other Scandic Hotels have by charging a fee for late check-out. As of 2013, Scandic allowed hotels to choose for themselves whether or not to charge for early check-in and late check-out. Many hotels still do not charge for these services but, unfortunately, this one does. Otherwise, we liked the swimming pool and sauna. One other suggestion: they could add better bread choices to the breakfast buffet. They had no whole grain breads to choose from. Overall, the breakfast was a little below par.

We stayed overnight last weekend whilst in town for Shrek the musical. The location of this hotel is perfect - easy to get to with plenty of parking available. The hotel itself was very nice - we had a superior extra room which was big with a lovely large bed. The bathrooms are a bit dated but very clean with a good hairdryer and nice toiletries. The breakfast room was in the open foyer and made a nice place for a quiet breakfast. The breakfast itself was very good and plentiful. The service in the hotel was great - we had asked for an early check-in but as they had been fully booked the previous night, only one of the rooms was ready when we arrived. We'd been in the room for 10 mins when reception desk called to inform us that the other room was now ready. All in all, a good stay - the only negative thing I can say is that you are better off asking for a room at the back of the hotel, facing the parking lot, rather than the main road at the front of the hotel - it's a busy road and can be quite noisy.

Scandic has seen the best days and you can feel the atmosphere immediately when you step in. It is a basic business hotel with all basic services. Rooms are a bit old fashioned and tired but will do the job though. Service is always really nice and helpful.
