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.

Just across from the railway station, you can't get much more central than this. The room was comfy, everything clean, and breakfast really great. You maybe get some traffic noise, being so close to the station, and I think the prices are a tiny bit inflated in Tampere in general, but overall a very good stay.

Hotel is located in the city center next to railway station. Hotel is quite basic, but I really liked the room and that everything was kept well cleaned. Also the room interior was quite modern i think. My room was in second floor, facing to quiet street. In the same floor I was staying there was separate saunas for men and women with spacious dressing rooms and lockers. Hotel breakfast was delicious, very fresh ingredients and also lots of vegan options. A few local specialities also, like blood sausage if you crave for something different for your mornings. Breakfast was served in a spacious restaurant area so it was easy to maintain safety distances to others. Because of the hotel location, it was easy to visit different attractions around the city by foot. Hotel staff was very friendly even when there was a huge line at check-in. I really enjoyed my stay here, would definitely come back!

I stayed in Tampere for a week in October 2019 for the WOMEX music conference.

I chose Scandic as a trusted chain and was not disappointed. The room had plenty space to work at the desk, and came with an ironing board tucked away in a hidden cupboard next to the fridge.

Breakfast was great, and the small refreshments stand next to reception a nice addition. The hotel was ideally placed for walking to the conference centre, and surrounding venues and bars.

The bathroom was a nice surprise, as there were two huge bath towels even though there was only one guest. Many hotels skip the second towel if the room has just one occupant. The breakfast buffet was nice, if nothing out of the ordinary, but what really stood out to me was the personnel. From the lady manning the reception when I arrived an hour before midnight, to the cleaners, the staff at the breakfast buffet, everyone was friendly, greeting all guests with a smile and a friendly word. The location of the hotel is excellent for someone arriving late by train, but what makes it my choice at all times is the fact that they seem to employ people who really understand how to make guests feel welcome without being overbearing.

This hotel is centrally located opposite the railway station. So it was very quick access from the train to the hotel.

We stayed two nights in the only suite for a senior rate of 219 euros per night. The suite is located on the top 7th floor. The absolute highlights are the balcony and the sauna with a view. The bathroom has a big bathtub and a separate shower.

The room was quite functional. However, the minibar was not cold enough. It helped when we kept the closet door open. The door should be totally removed. Also, the steps to the toilet and to the bathroom were quite dangerous at first until you got used to them.

The breakfast was great, definitely on the best side of Scandic breakfasts. The buffet is well organized and it is easy to see what is where. On the second morning, the breakfast was busy but not chaotic.

The reception staff was very friendly.

Our family of three stayed at Scandic Tampere City for two nights over a weekend. We had booked a superior room and asked for one with a king size bed (as the toddler sleeps between us) and a bathtub, and the reception had already confirmed by email that our wish was granted. In addition, in my Scandic Friends profile I have opted for the "far away from the elevators", as especially when travelling with a small kid it would be nice to have a room from a quieter location.

The room we got was practically in the lift lobby and had twin beds placed next to each other, so I went back to the reception to ask if there was a chance to switch to a room with a king bed instead. The receptionist was very kind and understanding, and gave us another room which wasn't much further away from the elevators, but otherwise filled our wishes. Apparently this room time was not available further away from the elevators, but luckily this time we did not suffer from loud passersby. Our room was spacious, comfy and clean and we found everything we needed there, but unfortunately the tiny mold spots in the bathroom were a bit disturbing.

The breakfast was of the average level of Finnish hotels, so multiple options to choose from and all the traditional meatballs, sausages, scrambled eggs, carelian pies, cold cuts etc. were offered, not to mention the Tampere specialty, Finnish black pudding. Coffee was very good, and I appreciated the opportunity to use the ceramic mugs for take away coffee to the room, good initiative! Just outside the breakfast room there was a small kids corner, but frankly this should have been inside the restaurant for it to serve its purpose better, i.e. keep the kids entertained while the parents enjoy their breakfast a bit longer.

Scandic Tampere City is very centrally located, which is definitely a big plus. The hotel garage was full upon our arrival so we used the nearby Finnpark instead. Although from there one had to cross the road to reach the hotel instead of just taking an elevator, we found this option convenient. It might be more challenging to a person travelling with a lot of luggage and/or to someone travelling with kids without the help of other adults, so maybe the hotel could consider reserving some of the spots to families with children to make it easier and more attractive to them.

Hello, thank you for staying with us and this extensive review! First of all, my apologies for the mistake with your room in the beginning and I am very happy to hear that this was fixed right away. Of course, it should have been right from the start. Our king beds with bathtubs are located right next to the elevator, so unfortunately this wish could not be fulfilled. We are happy to hear that the breakfast was to your liking and also the location served you well. We will also consider the playground's location once we are renewing the premises! We hope to see you again with us here and wish you happy spring time! Kind regards, Tiina Reception

Nice and clean hotel with very good location right across the street from railway station and next to main street. Rooms were quiet and beds had white, clean sheets (we had 2 seperate beds that could be pushed together). Staff was very helpful and polite. Breakfast was amazing and had everything you might want. My trip was a couples trip. :)

This hotel is located very close to the railway station, so this hotel is easily accessible by public transport. Also the city center is almost next to the corner. Although this hotel is located in the city center, the traffic noise does not annoy at all. Hotel's staff is very friendly.

This was our 2nd stay in a few weeks, again we got a nice room, this time 514, a corner room with good daylight coming in from both side. Not as big as room 761 we had last time, but very clean and walk-in shower, always a bonus. Due to Corona no buffet breakfast, but the "carry out" breakfast for very good. The staff is outstanding, so friendly and helpful, they made us so welcome. Only thing what you could "fix", put "Breakfast tea" bags into the rooms, British people prefer drink "real tea", not with some funny flavours, you are not the only Finnish hotel not to offer plain tea, thiswhy we always have our our tea bags with us...

After the recent refurbishment this is definitely one of my favourite places to stay in Tampere. The Superior Family room that we got for the weekend (thank you for the upgrade :) was really nicely furnished and felt more like a suite. The breakfast was great as usual and being allocated a timeslot for breakfast on Sunday (to avoid the breakfast area getting crowded) worked really well.
