Good B&B hotel

Pros: Location very central. Comfortable sleep
Cons: Provide a bar and light meals and fix that master switch problem
Location: Very close to central station and museums.
We stayed two nights B&B. Comfortable room but no drawers for clothes so you have to live out of your suitcase. Power sockets by the bed, good. Bedside tables small, not enough for a lady's needs. And we discovered the master switch at the bed not just turned off all the lights like a toggle, it disabled all switches. So when I went to the bathroom during the night I could not turn on its light. What a stupid design decision. I had to use the master switch to turn back on all the lights, and then go around them all individually turning them off which did not suit my wife trying to sleep. Kettle and tea/coffee/milk sachets in the room. Excellent breakfast choice and helpful staff at breakfast. A strange hotel - very much a B&B place. No lunch service, no bar when we arrived. We were too tired to wander around looking for places to eat - tried nearest one but only a cafe, and queues. Normally it's only very cheap hotels that cannot offer a guest any lunch or drink when they arrive. So we waited until the Màs restaurant (Spanish food) below the hotel opened. Most expensive lunch we've ever had at 120 for lunch for two with only one drink, we took two hours over it, but to be fair the quality was good. They advertise a Más rooftop bar with views but when I tried it it was closed - it's only open Tue to Sat they say. So, probably suits business travellers with an overnight, not so much holiday visitors.

Satisfying stay as always

Pros: Rooms, cleanliness, staff, everything
Cons: Nothing comes to mind. Perfect stay.
Location: Location is very central, next to Kamppi shopping centre and close to central Helsinki railway station. Easy access anywhere.
I stay at Scandic Simonkenttä almost everytime I go to Helsinki for business travel. Overall excellent quality for the price and I really cannot think of anything to improve. Highly recommended.

nice hotel

Hotel is right beside shopping centre, less than 5 min walk from train station easy to find, close to bars & restaurants yet only 10-15 walk to harbour for the market, tram stop @ front door to get anywhere (with a change or two) in Helsinki breakfast .... saved by mustard herring otherwise ... ok Aussie bar is very close & reasonable price for beer, downside not a lot could moan about no tea/coffee in room, but you can buy it in foyer, is free with brekkie tho.

Great Hotel!

Friendly staff, phone charger outlet next to the bed, mall accessable via the Hotel lift. The best breakfast buffet that I have ever seen! (Loads of fresh fruit!)

Sijainti ei keskustahotellille voisi olla parempi - mutta silti rauhallinen. Henkikökunta erittäin ystävällistä ja auttavaista.

Hyvä, tilava huone. Hyvä sänky. Liikenteen melu ei häirinnyt.

Huone pölyinen, lattia roskainen samoin matto jo tullessa eivätkä puhdistuneet lauantaina vaikka siivooja oli käynyt huoneessa......sängyssä oli myös jo valmiiksi tullessamme pitkiä mustia hiuksia. Käytävän jääpalakoneet eivät toimineet. Varhainen aamiainen tosi surkea ja kaikkea piti pyytää, kun oli koko ajan loppunut.
