Price was very affordable for being a Radisson Blu, usually when I stay at Radisson it´s in big cities and the price would go up. Free WiFi which is good, speed was ok. However, the fitness center costs money... Breakfast was of good variety but hotels´ need to learn to make a proper scrambled eggs when they are kept warm.

There aren't a lot of options in town, but this one seems to be the fave. A quick cab ride from Vaasa's tiny airport. Reception is a little on the brusque side, but efficient. I have stayed here before and have been in both the main building (reception) and across the street. This time I was across the street in... More

The Radisson Blu in Vaasa is one of the best hotels in the city. It has very nice rooms, and the service is very good. The breakfast is also quite good. The hotel is located next to the railway and bus stations, and is only one block from the city center. All-in-all a great hotel!

So, I stayed in Vaasa for two weeks between January and February. Obviously I stayed at this hotel and I think it was overall a great experience and a great hotel, so I recommend it. As everything, it had good and bad things, so I'll try to expose them to you so you can make your own judgement. 1.) Attention... More
