Scandic Grand Marina Hotel Shuttles
HEL airport hotel transfers
Located in Helsinki’s eastern neighborhood of Katajanokka, the Scandic Grand Marina is a gorgeous harborside stay designed for guests looking to enjoy the city’s urban pulse without getting caught in the mix of it. 4-star rooms are housed within a historic red brick building, with many suites including same-room seating areas, atrium lighting and select duplex layouts for families, not to mention upgradable suites that add private in-room saunas. There are many on-site luxuries available throughout the hotel that include a posh bar & restaurant scene complimented by 24-hour room service as well as a therapeutic gym & sauna. Public transportation is available through the nearby Kauppiaankatu Light Rail Station a couple blocks north, while those looking to attend nearby events at the Wanha Satama Event Venue should reserve a private ride, choosing between the placidity of small sedans and spacious chartered buses. Meet-and-greet services such as stretched limousines and taxis are a great commitment-free alternative, whether it means bypassing traffic downtown or catching a flight to Helsinki Airport.
Surrounded by upscale seafood restaurants and landmark attractions, the idyllic stay is not only made popular for its on-site amenities but astounding scenery. Instant entertainment is available through the dinner theater of Kaksi Kanaa across the street, while other charms are located a bit further north along the same stretch of road, including the Russian-designed Finnish Orthodox Uspenski Cathedral, which rests atop a hill looking out at both the sea and downtown Helsinki, as well as the Tove Janssonin Park’s greenery that wraps around the towering church. Get an even wider glimpse of the region by walking over to the famous SkyWheel Helsinki afterward, a great way to take in dusk over the city from giant gondolas offering panoramic views. Also close to the ferris wheel includes the incredibly scenic Allas Sea Pool, which provides a vibrant urban swimming basin especially beautiful on warm summer nights.
