Great access to city center

Right around the corner from the main railway station and city center of Helsinki. This hotel is great. Except the two twin beds coming together to make a queen size bed. The beds kept coming apart and would not stick together..

excellent value and location

This hotel was an excellent choice for our family, with the train station and plenty of shopping all within a block or two. The heated bathroom floor was a big hit! Helsinki is so close to Estonia that we took a day-cruise there and back on the Viking Line. Very reasonable price and well worth it.

Average hotel, nothing special

I stayed here for six days. The room I got was a standard, which was a bit small. The bed was a full size, but the pillows were hard, small and uncomfortable. The window blinds did a very poor job of blocking out the light so being able to sleep in darkness was not possible. The overall comfort of the room was not up to par for a 4-star hotel. I paid 140 euros per night. Perhaps staying at another hotel would have given me a little bit more comfort.

Location - Location - Location

It was the third time we stayed at Marski, and we do it because it is a good hotel in the absolute center of Helsinki. Great restaurants and good shopping within walking distance, and good public transportation around the city. Try Bellevue for a good meal, and Stockmann across the street for shopping. We will go to Marski next time again..

Great location near central train station

Stayed 3 nights in this central Helsinki hotel for the Flow Festival 2012. It was situated near the central train station and near the Finnair Airport Bus drop off site. The breakfast spread was pretty big and included both warm (eggs etc) and cold items (fresh yogurt). Getting to the rooms was a bit different, as there are two sections of the hotel, we were in the second section. We had to take the elevator in the lobby to the 3rd floor. Then walk along a walkway to the latter part of the hotel. Not a big deal though. Bottom line is that the hotel is central to all of Helsinki and a great place to stay.

Satisfactory hotel in Great Location

The hotel facility is somewhat dated. Good by regular European standards. The beds are small. We had a deluxe room which was large by European standards, but small by American experience. Very nice Breakfast Buffet and free internet.

When Location is Important

Great location across the street from Helsinki's largest department store (Stockmann's). Great area for shopping and dining. Close proximity to Esplanade Park for nice walks in the evening and when heading toward the harbor area. Hotel room faced atrium, which kept things quiet, but view wasn't any good. Actually it didn't seem like much privacy with the windows facing other rooms and hallways....felt claustrophobic! Breakfast was plentiful with large selection. No pool and sauna area was small without an attendant. Other than location, nothing really stood out about this hotel to make it special in any way.

If you crave a Tex-Mex fix, Iguana restaurant next door to the hotel gets pretty darn close to the real thing.

9 Summer Nights at Hotel Marski

The hotel's central location accross the street from Helsinki's best department store Stockmann was unbeatable. We enjoyed it very much. The organic breakfast with a variety of foods was great. I had concerns about street noise before our trip and my worst fears materialized during our stay. Our room was in the new wing on the second floor by Yrjonkatu that is a street parallel to the main street Mannerheimintie. There was a lot of street noise making it difficult to sleep. The hotel was full so it was not possible to change a room. It was great to have a private sauna off the bathroom. It appears that the member's of Scandic's freaquent quest program were getting the best service and rooms. I will join it if I stay in this hotel again.
