The Helsinki Central railway station, built in 1919 by Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen reopened in April as the Scandic Grand Central hotel.

Considered an example of Finnish art nouveau, the property was restored by Soini & Horto Architects, and additions were created by Futudesign; the interior design was carried out by Puroplan.

The hotel features 491 guestrooms, 373 in the original building and 118 in a new extension. Amenities include the Brasserie Grand and Bar G, a glassed-in courtyard terrace and a grand ballroom that can accommodate up to 500.
