“Nice location ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

The hotel got a nice location, good rooms and helpful staff, at least if you think about the price. The room we got was big, had a bathtub and everything a hotel room should have. Only thing that I hoped would be better was the breakfast.

Stayed here couple of nights. We compared different hotels around centrum of Helsinki and this was our choose. Not the Cheapest but definitely worth of money. Check in was fast and we got late check out free of charge! Plus sides are the location, many major shopping centers near by ( Kamppi, Forum, Stockmann) and if you wanna go bit further there are big bus station about 400m from the hotel, Helsinki´s major railway station about 1-1,5 km. Another plus side was awesome breakfast! Lots of chooses for everyones taste, i won't leave here with empty stomach! I was so impressed by this Radisson that I booked also Radisson hotel for my next trip!

Room Tip: You may ask room with a view to the centrum, if it is away from centrum the window look may not be g...

A very cheery welcome from reception set a tone that continued throughout the stay. Very clean, well designed and spacious room. Good healthy breakfast choice though a little busy. No gym in hotel, but access to a well eqipped gym just 50m from front door; access to gym is Euro 5 if you get token from hotel reception. Aa delight to have stayed here.

as well as the summer terrace and the breakfast. The room were spacy but somewhat worn out. We had to chance the room twice due to the rooms being inadequatly cleaned, meshy or untidy. The third room was opposite to the lift and quite noisy and the good nights sleep was short and interrupted by the dig dong sounds of the lift. Also the hot water was a bit difficult to get, there some problems with the thermostst we assumed. Air condition did not work in all the rooms we tried.

Room Tip: Ask for a better stay, even five times or more

This hotel is in an excellent location for public transportation and walking to all major sites. However, the rooms are very basic and despite repeated requests to have the air conditioning fixed, after three nights it still was not adequately working. Buffet breakfast included with the room was very good.

Dear seattletraveler1110,

Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us in Helsinki and that you appreciate our location and breakfast.
Indeed our location is great. Metro Station and tram stop is just a few steps away from hotel main door. From the hotel we have great public transportation connection to for example to West harbour (Tallinn Ferrys) and to Olympic terminal ( overnight ferrys to Stockholm).

We regret to hear about your disappointment with the air conditioning. This summer in Finland we have a record-breaking heat wave, maybe that is one reason for that the air conditioning was not adequately efficient.
Your comments will be forwarded to our Maintenance department and we will update our air conditioning system for the future.

Thank you for review and for your stay and look forward to welcoming you back soon!
With best regards
Joni Väisänen

Spent 4 days here and we were very satisfied with our choice of hotel. On arrival the reception staff were very helpful and we were told we had been upgraded to the top floor. The room was very clean, all the facilities were good and in good condition. Breakfast was excellent, the staff extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel was in a very convenient location for us and we walked everywhere around the city. Originally we were planning on buying a Helsinki Travel Card but we found that it was much more convenient for us to walk and we saw much more of the city that way. When we arrived we must have mentioned to the reception staff that one of the reasons we were visiting Helsinki was to celebrate my wife's birthday, on the day, much to our surprise and pleasure we found a bottle of bubbly a flower and 2 glasses, compliments of the hotel, a very nice gesture. We ate in the hotel on our last night, the food was very good and not all that expensive. All in all, very good Helsinki stay.

I have stayed in this hotel on 2 occasions and I like it very much for a variety of reasons. The first being there is a nice spot to pull your car almost to the front desk, which makes it very easy to unload your luggage and get it to your room without worrying about the car for 5 minutes (this can be a challenge on many hotels in many big cities in Europe). Secondly, the staff is super friendly and were very accommodating a couple minor requests we had. The room was big, and clean, and already air conditioned when we got in from a long day of travel, that was nice. The restaurant is delicious, and the breakfast the next morning (included in your room rate) should not be missed. Tons of choices, fresh, meats, cheeses, breads, desserts, donuts, rolls, croissants, juices, coffees, you name it - they had it...I will stay here every time I come back to Helsinki for sure
