We loved the Scandic Grand Central and it was perfect for our trip to Finland. It was very near the transportation center and we were able to get to and from the airport very easily. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They helped us print out forms for the trip back and helped with our missing luggage. We loved the generous and delicious breakfasts every morning. It was really fun to enjoy a Finnish breakfast and to relax in the sun room. My husband was a huge fan of the porridge and red smoothie. Our room was very comfortable and clean. However, we didn't spend much time there, as the hotel was located so conveniently to many things we wanted to do in Helsinki.
