“Central location, relaxed climate, superb service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Spent one night in this hotel during the weekend. Hotel quite full but plenty of room for all to fit in.

Room was in business class with view to the inner courtyard. Hi-tech room allowed us to play tunes from our laptop.

Club lounge located on the second floor looking downstairs towards the main restaurant. Lounge included complimentary drinks (soft, wine, beer, spirits) as well as some small snacks. Atmosphere there was very relaxed and service very personalised.

Breakfast was standard Radisson quality (meaning very good and lots to choose from).

Room Tip: Upgrade to Business room to get the access to the lounge. In-room breakfast is then also included.

Good location from which to walk to all the sites, shopping, bus and train station.
Service is exceptional, staff were friendly and helpful.
The hotel is well equipped from a technology perspective, good wifi, plenty of power points including a handy point in the room safe.
The breakfast buffet was excellent as was the restaurant. Good selection of food including Traditional Finnish cuisine at prices similar to outside. There is a Nepalese restaurant and a Mexican restaurant across the road.
Hotel design is funky and the beds are very comfortable.

Dear SweetpeaOlive,

Thank you for your very nice feedback.

It´s at all times wonderful to hear so good feedback of our service and staff. Thank you and I´ll thank our staff...

During renovation last year we made several improvements thinking of modern-day guests and their needs. And according your feedback we have succeeded in that.

So until the next time.

Have used the Radisson Plaza as my "home" when staying in Helsinki for the last 6 years.
The hotel itself is a rebuilt headoffice, combining some of the classic charm and modern design.
The hotel is quite busy, both as traditional business traveller's hotel, and as a tourist hotel for groups.
The Restaurant offers a simple but good menu, to the Italian style side. The bar is often busy both as a dropin after work place and as the place you relax with papers - a book and a glass of wine or beer.
The location is excellent in the dead center of town- close to the main station and just 5 minutes walk away from the "Esplanade"

Room Tip: ASk for an upgrade.....

Was at this place before. 5 minutes walking from the train station - great when you arrive/depart Helsinki by train. Walking distance to shopping and all major attractions. Staff is very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast is simple but with enough choices and very good quality. My only concern this time was a room on the second floor. It was of unusual design and attached to the exercise room - noisy if you want to get to bed early.

This was a really nice hotel in central helsinki, within easy walk of bus and rail station. Great service and the room was very clean with good facilities.Communal sauna was empty and clean, so worth a visit. The draw here is the brilliant breakfast, just about everything available, great buffet. Lots of bread, fruit, yoghurts and pastries and a nice cooked selection. I would visit again if just for the breakfast.Easy wifi, great shower and close to everything. Staff were nice and recommended good eats locally.

Room Tip: rooms in the new wing are lovely

Stayed here during a short visit to Helsinki.

We chose the hotel mainly because of it's central location, but also based on previous reviews. We do not regret it! The staff was very friendly and helpful, and both check-in and check-out was quick and easy, like it should be.

The room was clean, comfortable and modern - power outlets everywhere. I was kind of surprised when we went down for breakfast the first day - I did not expect such a big selection! Even though a lot of people ate breakfast at the same time, it never felt crowded due to the big space available.

The central location made getting around in Helsinki quite easy, walking distance to both train station, bus stops and tram stops.
