On a normal hotel scale, very nice experience. Only big minus; way too many people at the same time having breakfast with no safety distance! At this time when corona virus is a real threat, I would hoped the staff would have kept some order and organize things better. Many people just diont care about corona, so its on the hotel's responsibility to have basic rules. The breakfast room and dining lines were all at one place, it would be better to have them all around the space so people would not line at the same place. Did't feel safe.
We chose this hotel based on our previous experiences. It is not quite perfect, but pretty good anyway and it is nicely situated close to the city centre.
The hotel is easy to arrive by yout car and there are many opportunities for parking. (This time they only had outside parking available.) We had a king superior room, which was spacious, clean and in good condition. The double bed was huge. Our only complaint is about missing shelves. If you want to empty your luggage and place your clothes on a shelf, there are hardly any.
Breakfast buffet was again in operation and the selection was quite normal and mainly OK. Our only comments concern the so-called tropical juice, which tasted like coloured water and the pine-apple pieces, which were not ripe.
The service was OK.
The hotel was comfortable and clean. We did enjoy our room and loved the area close to centrum. Free parking area was super important to us. The breakfast buffet disappointed a bit. We didn't know it would be only a half buffet because of the Covid-19.
This hotel is undergoing renovations. Two top floors are ready.
We got our Superior Sauna room from the highest 5th floor. It is the best room category at this hotel.
The new decor is stylish. Our room was very spacious with a proper sitting group. The sauna is quite small, just for two persons. The bathroom has a good rain shower. The room equipment is better than the usual Scandic. For example, there are high-quality glasses for minibar.
The breakfast was pleasantly calm because of the coronavirus pandemic. We arrived in the hotel the same Thursday when the Finnish government started its actions against the virus. The food selection was quite extensive, the typical Scandic.
Bed was perfect and also breakfast. Reception officer was professional and friendly when we need help with little things. We liked renovated room, modern and versatile. I can recommend this Hotel to anyone!
