“Very nice hotel, very central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

If location matters this hotel is then a rather no-brain choice. It's a few steps away from the main train station, in the very center of Helsinki, and from there you can easily walk to everywhere in downtown. No shortage of restaurant and bars around it - the contrary, actually.

Rooms are very nicely decorated, the colour scheme and look is nice and modern.

Internet was a bit ... sluggish. In my room the signal was not too strong, and it was rather slow. My colleague could not get connected from his room. So, that was a bit unfortunate.

Another small downside, as already noted, there can be long queues at check in, and as there is no concierge, if you need them to suggest a restaurant, or book anything for you, it can get a bit uncomfortable.

Overall, though, I would recommend.

Good hotel in excellent location nearby city center attractions. The only negative experience was line in front desk in arrival and departure. No Concierge service, So if you want to ask simple advise you still need to get attention in the very same front desk.
Something in their beds makes me sweaty. Same in other Radissons in Scandinavia.

This is one of those hotels that make you think, I wish this were my home was like this. Beautiful room, super comfortable bed with many cushions. Even the sofa was exceptional. Many power outlets, all over the room, which is always appreciated, especially the ones at either side of the bed. I counted at least 2 3-pin outlets. Ginormous TV can be hooked up with your laptop, phone, etc via a variety of ports, and you can get the right cables from reception. Fast wireless internet.

I usually stay in the Plaza, so this was a first time. Good and friendly service with great breakfast. Location central, but a little pricy for what you get. Will probably stay at the Plaza next time around...

Great base to explore the hustle and bustle of the centre of Helsinki , comfortable, über stylish rooms, bars and restaurant. Faultless, apart from exchange rate not being in our favour. Definitely recommended.

Great hotel. Clean, modern, quiet. One of the largest flat screen tvs I've ever seen in a hotel room. Breakfast was amazing. So much variety and great quality. Location was very convenient. Steps from the train station. Easy bus to the airport and about a 10 minute walk from the harbor. Would definitely recommend.

My little son and I only stayed at this hotel a night, but the impressions are the best.The design and comfort are beyond all praises. And those old photos of past times in the corridors are really touchig.The location is in the very centre, but in a quiet street at the same time. Very close to the railway station, and we travelled by train. Breakfast is various and delicious.The staff at the reception are very friendly and helpful. Our staying was extended till 18.00 pm absolutely free of charge. We couldn't see any faults. When we come back to Helsinki, we'll choose the same.
