I like the hotel because of its nice location, close to the harbor and the city center, which can be reached in less than 10 minutes by food.
The rooms are modern and clean.
WLAN is sufficiently fast.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
Nice location near town centrum. Good transport options. Also easy to walk to city center. Basic rooms. Great pillow:-)We had good sleep, breakfast. Restaurant was very nice. Good view to the harbor.
We booked to stay here for a family get together- my son from Moscow, and the rest of the family from England and Scotland.
So many good features to mention!! Delighted that the hotel were happy to let our son (who arrived in Helsinki much earlier than the rest of us) have access to our room even though dad was to pay the bill!
Our room was lovely. We booked a room with space for us all (4 of us) and with our own sauna. It was a lovely room - really comfortable beds, table/chairs, kitchen area, fabulous own sauna. All rooms have structural support pillars in them which was a nice, unusual feature. Our room had a wall of very tiny square, unopen-able windows which let minimal light in (except in sunshine) - but this was the nature of the original warehouse building so happy to accept this! Lighting was very Scandinavian - light exactly where it was needed, with available lamps to plug in for additional light. We loved the way the building had been reconstructed to enhance its original features and liked the way this was explained in posters around the hotel. Our room was really quiet too. No sound at all from other rooms or even the corridor.
We arrived late and were concerned that we would not find anywhere to eat when we arrived. We need not have worried. The hotel has its own sandwich bar in the foyer where one can buy sandwiches, salads, drinks, chocolate, etc.
Breakfast was superb. Very busy, but there were a lot of guests here. Supplies of just about all you could wish for were available for breakfast. Staff were working flat out to keep everything stocked up!
Reception staff, indeed all the staff we met, were very helpful and friendly.
This is an excellent hotel and we would certainly consider coming again if we have another opportunity to visit Helsinki. Thank you Scandic Grand Marina for a very comfortable and happy stay!
