Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our staycation as a family was quite a disaster. We got a room that was very noisy until 3.15 in the morning. Only our child slept (mostly) through the night. The noise came from an event inside the hotel and the reception clearly knew this upon check-in, but did not mention to us that an event next door may cause disturbance. In the morning they admitted that our room should not have been booked. But why not upon check-in? We could have just gone home instead! The room was okay but the cleaning had not been completed - surfaces had a layer of dust, armchairs were tucked in one corner, and the fridge had debris of food inside. Bathroom was clean and so were the sheets. We mentioned our child's severe food allergies when booking and again when checking in. However, ar breakfast, the staff had no knowledge of them and were reluctant to provide allergy information on food (provision of which is mandated by law, so should not be a problem!). We managed to secure toast and jam for him and he was happy, but us parents were not happy at all. Also, the new vegan options were advertised in Scandic's web page, but we found them much poorer than before in Scandic hotels. Maybe this is not an especially vegan-friendly hotel, or maybe the pandemic caused them to be thrifty. Compared to the allergy food for my son, vegan options were plentiful, but still a disappointment, as we expected much better. And of course veganism is a choice whereas food allergies are a chronic disease, so it would be much more important to take care of allergy information. The staff clearly needs training in this department. We received compensation after our reclamation, two gift cards for Scandic. Which is fine, but I would much rather just erase this experience from my memory. I don't see any reason to stay in this hotel ever again, and to be honest would not recommend it to anyone (except for maybe those who attend an event at Paasitorni and plan to stay up very late). There is another Scandic hotel around the corner - if for some reason this area is important, I would choose that.

Hotel was very pleasant and clean.The breakfast had many options (also vegan and gluten free) and was delicious. The staff was very friendly. The standard room was comfortable to sleep in: you could get the room very dark, the bed and the sheets were comfy and there was a/c in the room. The decoration of the room was a bit mixed but did not bother us when everything else was extremely pleasant.

rooms have not been cleaned for ages, a thick layer of dust on all surfaces and floor, pitch black balcony railings, very small rooms, bulky dysfunctional furniture (a chair without a table or desk? a minibar that blocks the only passage towards balcony, between the bed and the wall, etc), outdated design, unfriendly reception staff. the only great things were the location and breakfast - yet, the breakfast is served in an underground bunker with no windows, a very sad place not if you are claustrophobic! my autistic kid hated the breakfast room so much, he did not mange to eat breakfast there a single time and they would not pack it to go or even arrange eating it above the ground in the loby.

Good location and beautiful rooms with some personality. I stayed for the weekend and had a really relaxing stay. Also good breakfast. Maybe the room could have been a bit cleaner and the other elevator did not seem to be working but other than that, nothing to complain :)

Lovely little hotel in a good location. Only draw back was that they do not provide tea/coffee making facilities in room, only choice is to buy from reception area which was so unusual than other Scandinavian hotels we had stayed in. Usually tea/coffee was free in the reception area plus tea/ coffee available in room. Beds weren't very comfortable in our room plus the view of refurbished buildings was an eyesore 604. We chose a standard room as that was all available at time of booking, small but clean & adequate for our type of trip. Mini bar rather over priced.

Perfect location to explore Helsinki with plenty of buses , trams and metro right outside the hotel , also the bus 615 to the airport stops there, the main railway station is merely a 10 minutes walk .You’ll find also plenty of restaurants, bars and a 24 hour supermarket in the vicinity. The main nightlife district is about 15 minutes walk away .Nevertheless the hotel is located in a quiet street with almost no traffic . My room was of a good size with plenty of room to hang my clothes , there was also a fridge .Windows cannot be opened but the ventilation system was not annoying as in other hotels and was easily adjusted .Internet worked well but you are asked to log in several times during the stay . The bed was very comfortable.The hotel staff were very welcoming and friendly

Modern hotel with a nice breakfast. Rooms are well equipped and the fitness room as well. Thanks to the staff at the reception. You were always very helpful (booking restaurants for me or giving other advice) and friendly. Even if the hotel doesn't have a sauna itself, you can use the one in the adjacent hotel.

Great accommodation friendly personal, clean, with a very good breakfast. Big enough rooms for couples. Opposite to a beautiful park and very near to transport facilities (2 minutes max). A very beautiful building. Surely recommendable.
