Scandic has managed to create a brand which is a consistent one: Normally you get a standard Scandic-experience with certain level of service, including friendly reception and all the other things like free Wi-Fi and nice breakfast. This time we were bit disappointed. Read further on,and you will see why.

This hotel is quite new, taken to service 2012 and the building is really what you expect. Also the service was good as normally. But when you pay fairly high price even during weekend, you expect to get a clean room, like we expected. When entering the room, everything seemed to be in place, but we found that there was a lot of dust on the floor next to walls. See the picture we took and attached.

Overall, excluding this surprise, everything was quite OK. A bit pricey, since you have to pay extreme price for the carage if you have a car.

Room Tip: To get a quit room, Ask for a room facing to inner yard. Although you see the trains there, they do not create alot of noise

Nice, new and clean hotel.
Great breakfast.
Dinner and parking arrangements need some work.

Dinner is half self-catering, works, but a bit unclear how to behave to suit hotels ideas of service.
Chevre salad would need some after work to transform it from ice cold salad with warm piece of chevre to enjoyable dish.

Parking cave is rather small.
If hotels own parking place is near do NOT take the next Hämppi-parking place, because it's shameless expensive. You should drive to Tullintori (or something like that) named parkinh place which has contract with Scandic. Unfortunately this is not tols nowhere and specially not there where it should be told, at the hotels parking door, when it is full and You begin to think where to go next with Your car.

Otherwise great location, very good breakfast, very clean rooms.
For gourmet dinner or lunch Restaurant C can be recommended (practically opposite to train station)

In Finland weather turned to be quite hot +30 which is too hot for many people. In hotels, expecially older ones is no air conditioning which makes hotel stay sometimes very unpleasant.
Scandic Station has very good location and because it's a new hotel; this is no problem
- rooms are cool.
If you looking for moderate price and enjoy skandinavian styled hotels; this might be your choice.
No surprises, and you know what you get for breakfast.
Train station is near but it does not matter, if windows are shut.

Room Tip: From upper floors you get superior rooms and better wiew to city centre.

Thank you for your stay with us and your good review. You are absolutely right, our rooms are cool, even in the middle of summer because of the good air conditioning. Did you know, by the way, that you can have breakfast on our terracce on sunny summer mornings?
We look forward to see you soon again!

Once more I had to shift in a week from the portuguese warm weather to the cold of the Finish Spring... The Scandic Tamapere Station is a good Hotel, and the nrestaurant has improved quite a lot...no do not take me wrong... it was a decent restaurant before... it is a excelent restaurant in price quality terms. I ddoubt you find better in these parameters in Tampere Hotels....
Congratulations to the Chef.

Room Tip: No SPA or Swimming pool, but a basic gim and finish sauna... watch out for the locals if you do not like very wet saunas... meaning lots of water on the stove... for the rest a good hotrl fos business trips even if not close to the city highlights....

I don't like finnish hotels usually. They tend to bee very generic, licht and simplistic scandinavian decor with little variance. The srandard of rooms tends to be so-so. Most finnish hotels I've stayed in I'd barely give 3 stars, mostly 2.

Scandic Tampere station is a positive exception. Have now visited twice, latest checked out this morning. The general appearance is fresh with a touch of quality. Of course it's brand new but the decorations and furnishing are tasteful and have a bit more color than usually. The reception staff has been great both times. Attentive, smiling, ever so helpful. Their small gym is very well equipped for its size, despite its size you can get a decent workout. The Freemotion has been an excellent choise.

Last night I stayed in the room with own sauna. Loved it! The sauna was good, got good "löylyt" and the own balcony to cool off made my day.

Also tried bistro Julienne this time for dinner. Caesar salad was good altough a tad pricey. House pinot grigio was good. Staff in the restaurant was wonderful.

All in all, great hotel, and what makes it really stand out in the finnish "hotel population" is the staff. In Finland I'm used to decent but that's it -type of service. In Scandic Station the service has clearly been made a priority. Well done! When in Tampere, this is the hotel I will stay in.
