Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed for 2 nights during weekend with kids and doggie. Hotel was pretty crowded, but did not have to stand queuing. Rooms were clean and our doggie was welcomed with blanket and cup - so nice. Breakfast was good continental with varities of warm bread, juices, cereal, jam, youghurt, bacon, egg, porridge and cheese. Try local black sausage with berryjam. Reception was polite and quick. Only minus is some pubs in the neighbourhood eith restless youth gathering. But no danger, not to worry. Price is worth of money, location is close to center, railway station is a block away. And Tampere and it's region and small cities, villages nearby are beautiful and worth to visit (Hämeenlinna etc). Come summertime.

Dear nappinena,

Thank you for your excellent review of your stay with us. I am happy to hear that your family enjoyed the visit and hopefully the blanket came in handy for your doggie. I agree, Tampere region has a lot to offer and beautiful scenery especially summertime. And also lots of people in the city on weekends enjoying the bright summer nights.

We look forward to having you back for a visit!

Best Regards,

Satu

Great location. Very comfortable rooms. Morning desk staff seemed overwhelmed. Was told I would get a phone call on my cell when my room would be ready... but never got it. So we got our room when we showed up again at 2.15 pm. Was offered a free bike rental that morning. Didn't get a chance to try the breakfast I had paid for with the room. My flight got rescheduled and had to leave the next day before 6 am. I was offered a packed snack: sandwich and orange juice which was a nice attention. Overall a very good hotel especially when desk staff will be able to properly handle both check outs and arrivals at the same time.
To Front Desk Supervisor: Don't be shocked when guests who arrive from long haul flights are kindly requesting to get a room earlier than the usual 2 pm check in. Put yourself in their shoes...and be kind.

Room Tip: Location is good. Not much view from any side of the hotel (unless your like the view on a train sta...

Dear fantasia112,

Thank you for reviewing your stay at our hotel. Please accept my apologies for the human mistake of not phoning you as you were promised. We understand that our guests have different arrival times and whenever possible, we do the check-in earlier.

I am sorry to hear you missed the breakfast. Hopefully you can visit us again and enjoy it then.

With Best Regards,

Satu

We stayed at the family room which easily accommodates 2 adults and 2 children. It has a balcony which is convenient for smokers and parents (who can spend some time alone). There is also a sauna and generally it is modern and clean.

The stuff is very helpful and professional. The noise outside is very well insulated and although the hotel is not in the center it is a walkable distance.

If you are interested in sarkaniemi you can buy them at the reception desk and avoid the queues at the park.

The breakfast was not a pleasant experience. Too crowded and very little space.

I stayed at the highest floor in room 708

This hotel is ideally located for travel by train as it is located directly across from the central station. The rooms are clean, well appointed and AIR CONDITIONED! The staff were very friendly and efficient and offered wonderful suggestions for nearby restaurants and attractions. The breakfast was outstanding. We would not hesitate to stay again and recommend this hotel highly. If you are seniors, be sure to ask for the rate reduction.

We visited Scandic Tampere Station hotel for the first time on hot July weekend. First thing I noticed was aircondition and it felt good! We arrived an hour early but managed to get a room. I had booked room advanced and that was good thing because I think hotel was near full. Room was clean and nice. Breakfast was good and I liked that they had local black sausage available on the table.

Room Tip: Our room was facing north and we had no traffic noise. But I think that Windows are very good to kee...

Hi Jantsa!

Great to hear that you had a nice stay with us. Thank you for your visit and writing a good review.
I agree that the air condition has been really good during these hot days of July.
Black sausage is one of our most popular breakfast products, and I promise that you´ll find it there on your next visit as well.

We look forward to welcoming you again!

Best regards,

Scandic hotels are the perfect example of modern Scandinavian design. Clean lines, wooden surfaces and light colours. This hotel was no exception. The room was roomy, clean, well air conditioned and comfy. The service was perfect.

Can't say we had any problems. We've been staying at Scandic hotels for years now, and every time the experience just seems to get better.

The hotel is right next to the train station, but there was no noise or anything. The centre was just a short walk away.

The hotel seems to be popular with families with children, so don't expect your breakfast to be quiet. But otherwise it was good, with a wide variety of choices.

The hotel was full of families with children on their summer holidays. So it felt a bit different to what I am used to. I did not feel disturbed though, as the rooms seem well soundproofed. I had an interesting view on to the train tracks but could not hear any station noise. The hotel felt very new and a bit cold but not in a disturbing way. It was like an upmarket IBIS hotel, and I mean this as a compliment.
There was free wifi everywhere, ironing equipment in the room and a good breakfast. Hotel is walking distance to the city centre and train station. It is 3 minutes walk to the Ryanair bus that takes you to the airport for 6 Euros.
The only thing I did not really like was the fact that the gym had no door and was rather small and poorly equipped.
