Helsinki is justifiably proud of its international achievement as the 2012 World Design Capital and for those who find pleasure and solace in the immersion of contemporary art and the cutting-edge vibes of urban life; this Nordic city is a must, where every corner is heating up with refurbished attractions.
Created in true Helsinki style to represent the colourful history of the Siltasaari district, the four-star Scandic Paasi is adjacent to a striking granite architectural gem, within easy reach of the city centre and close to a quaint Baltic inlet. Known for its excellent service and location, this hotel sits right next to the districts of Hakaniemi and trendy Kallio, as is the peaceful Eläintarhanlahti shoreline.
There are many tram lines and bus routes that pass through the nearby Helsinki Market Square. The botanical gardens are just across the bay and the magnificent Senate Square is a 15-minute walk away. Hakaniemi Harbour, with boat access to Korkeasaari Zoo, is a 2-minute walk from the hotel.
Guests can surf the internet with free Wi-Fi, plus use of bicycles and Nordic walking sticks. A fitness centre and library with board games and magazines are available to guests. With a number of interesting restaurants, you are spoilt for choice and the sea pavilion, which opened in 2015, is a unique panorama restaurant floating on the sea, open year-round.
This is a very unique way to enjoy a city break in the “Pearl of the Baltic”!
