I stayed in this hotel for a week in Helsinki and I was really pleased with everything. The reception stuff is very friendly, rooms spacious and location is just superb on Kamppi station. You can walk to city center, Metro is across the street and there is abundance of places to eat 24h/day all around the hotel. WiFi was free... More

Stayed here twice for the past few months. It is average hotel, nothing really to complain but for the Radisson Royal I would expect more. I constantly felt that hotel is tired and in need of some refreshment. Though it's pretty good value for money anyway considering location - only a few minutes walk from city center

This hotel is average for the price. It is clean, the staff are very friendly. The bar is a typical international hotel chain bar. Free wifi is great. You can do better, you can do worse. The breakfast buffet is very good.

I would look for another hotel again as this one did definitely not impress us. They need to completely refurbish this one. We spent four nights here and ate dinner here four times. Positives: free wifi throughout, free internet access in lobby with 3 PCs and printer, excellent location as one can walk to most museums, stores, restaurants. Negatives: the... More

What really stands out in this hotel is the staff working there. All the way from reception, the cleaner you meet in the corridor, to the barman and waiters in the (quite good) restaurant you encounter a friendly smile and a feeling of really caring about your well-being. Rooms are simple, clean and well working. Beds are great and surroundings... More

This is a smart business hotel with an attached conference facility. Check in is swift and friendly - we joined the Club Carlson and received 5% off all meals in the hotel.
