Scandic Grand Marina Helsinki, Finland

Scandic Grand Marina Helsinki

Location

The principal regions of Helsinki’s center, such as the Market Square, small island ferry quays and beefy springs, the Helsinki Skywheel, the Uspensky Orthodox Cathedral, Senate Square and shopping malls are located within walking distance, though routine trams by a nearby stop simplicity the brief trip. Quirky art nouveau details abound from the surrounding residential area.

Style & personality

Of those 462 rooms, no two are equal. The rugged red brick façade, altered in the original layout by honored ancient 20th-century architect Lars Sonck, and vibrant art nouveau interior themes, together with its absolute size, differentiate the resort from a number of its more vibrant, more contemporary Scandi cousins. The resort was started following transformation in 1992 and has a significant conference center in a different old warehouse on the shore.

Service & amenities

An onsite hair salon, laundry room, fitness center, saunas, bike loan, a store open 24 hours, along with friendly desk personnel at a spacious reception area, well decorated with Finnish wildlife photographs, give the resort a self indulgent feel. Helsinki cards for vacationers and neighborhood maps are available for your seminar visitors, families and sports clubs typically in home in the Grand Marina.
