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.

I stayed here for one night to work at an event.
Staff was friendly but the front desk was understaffed and long lines occurrd at the check-in.
Breaksfast was organised in shifts.
My room was in the annex, so I had to walk downstairs and througj a tunnel.
My room was ice cold and the AC heating refused the remote control. The room was clean but the walls were thin. The curtains are not lightproof, bring a sleeping mask, for the streetlamps are on all night.
The bathroom was very basic, rather Holiday Inn or Ibis Budget style, far from the regular Scandic standards. The shower was moody...and not very warm.
Breaksfast was oustanding wven for Scandic standards. With plenty of vegan and gluten-free choices, even cake was provdided.
The station is in walking distance, so is the City Center and bars and clubs.
All in all it was ok, but next time I'll try to get better value at a different hotel, for I prefer a waem room, if it's -15*C outside.

Really good breakfast and location. Breakfast could be until 11am. Now only until 10am. We were on holiday, so it would be nice to sleep longer. Room nice, but the floor needs to be upgraded. Staff very friendly and helpful. We didn’t want to pay for the parking, so we took our car to Yrjönkatu, there was 4h free parking :)

Upon arrival, I was asked if I needed a quiet room. Although the hotel is very much in the city centre, the room really was quiet and I slept very well. A nice no-nonsense choice for a hotel, great location especially for those travelling by train. Bring your own slippers as there are no carpets on the wooden floors.

Excellent breakfast and 5th floor rooms had comfy and wide beds and recently renovated bathrooms. The staff were really helpful. The amount of Scandic Friends points required for a reward night is very low which is a nice bonus!

This hotel is a former Cumulus Hotel in two buildings on both sides of the street. There is a tunnel connecting the buildings.

Before a two-night stay here, we stayed one night in the nearby Scandic Station. The public spaces at this Scandic City are much better. The reception, the gym, and the Moe's Bar are located in one building. The other building has the pool with saunas, the breakfast room, and the Bord restaurant.

The rooms are a little bit outdated, although they have the newer Cumulus decor with light green curtains and no blue walls.

We booked the only Superior Sauna room which is the best room category at this hotel. It is a very spacious room. Actually, it could be called a suite because it has separate living and bedrooms. There are two bathrooms, one with a big dressing room. The sauna is spacious, for 5-6 persons. The only thing which we didn't like was the sofa. It was uncomfortable, worn and should be replaced.

The breakfast was pleasantly calm because of the coronavirus pandemic. The food selection was good.

Our stay had excellent value for 124 euros per night.

Booked Scandic Jyväskylä City for an overnight stay, having travelled from Hämeenlinna.

What more can I say, the hotel was excellent, great reception, comfortable and well equipped rooms, had a perfect nights sleep, for a nightcap the bar was great with a wide selection of drinks, breakfast was amazing, with something for everyone!

As a city hotel parking is a small problem, but we paid the Euro 12,00 for parking, which was OK, but space is limited, although there is the parking house for a little more cost.

Overall a great experience, the hotel is a credit to the Scandic group.

Good place to stay on work trip. Good and tidy rooms, quiet to sleep. Good and peaceful breakfast room if you go early enough. Location is perfect and lots of parking room for your car. Both hotel and parking places are quite easy to find. I recommend. Of course rooms are a bit old but the bed was great and that is what matters to me when I am on a work trip.

We had a Superior Plus room with Sauna. The room was spacious, the furniture in the living room relatively old. Though, we felt comfortable. Sauna und showers were new and surprisingly big.

The hotel is located well. Close to the inner city, the railway station and the lake.

Service personal was very friendly.

Breakfast was delicious and offered many alternatives.

The restaurant has a nice charm, waitress was very kind, food was delicious.

Clean room situated in the center of Jyväskylä.
The room was quite enough for good sleep, although the hotel was full.
Warm garage for the car - easy to continue driving on the snowy roads after the visit.
Friendly, helpful people at the reception.

Hotel was pretty good. Rooms are clean and nice but would need small update i guess. But nothing huge just small signs of wear here and there. We were still very happy with the room. The service at the lobby was very kind and this place had awesome breakfast. 5/5. We checked the gym and it had all the basic things you can imagine to do a good workout.

Parking lot was good also.
