Loved this hotel
Excellent hotel and brilliant location for visiting the city. Breakfast superb. Room was a good size and exceptionally clean and in excellent condition. Only disappointment was that there was no kettle in room.

Grand charm in a great location
This hotel is located next door to the railway station. Soundproofing was great and we didn't hear any of the trains. Staff was very helpful with holding our luggage before and after our trip. The lobby had a lovely fireplace and comfortable couches. Our room was quiet and spacious. The bed offered great support, with lots of comfy pillows. The bathroom was well stocked and had a nice rainfall shower head. We would stay here again.

10/10 Exceptional

Incredibly helpful staff makes the Scandic Grand Central the perfect hotel for a short stay in Helsinki. We asked on check-in, whether we could grab some things for breakfast early the next morning to allow us to catch an early ferry to Tallinn. The very helpful staff member immediately suggested that we could collect a bagged breakfast to help us on our way. Big (for Europe) rooms and excellent room service made this a wonderful stay.

2/10 Poor

This hotel was horrendous. My wife had to book another hotel for me for the last night. 20 minute check in whilst staff just chatted together is unacceptable. Being woken very early in the morning by noise was frustrating. A view of a wall from my window. Where’s was the English news? Or even American? Breakfast felt like Disneyland - no one to clean tables. The location was great for my work but that’s it. Normally Scandic are exceptional, alas not this one. I would not recommend this hotel. Breakfast was nice though - always good to end on a good note.
