A TA friend suggested last year that I join the Radisson’s Club Carlson and I can’t thank her enough for the tip. Applying the reward points from our stay at another Radisson property, we were able to reduce the hotel rate at the Radisson Blu Plaza. There are other useful benefits too, like an automatic room upgrade for 20 €.
We took the Finn Air airport shuttle bus to the bus terminal next to the Central Railway Station and walked a few minutes across the plaza to our hotel. Although we arrived before 3 pm, we were able to check in immediately and begin our sightseeing day in Helsinki.
The hotel is a pleasant walk to the Esplanade and the ferry boat piers. It’s also easy to take the metro or trams to the Hakaniemi Market Hall. For dinner, we walked a few minutes to the main street near the bus terminal and hopped on a tram to Ravintola Kuu. During White Nights, going for a walk after dinner feels like taking an afternoon stroll!
Our room was a superior one on a higher floor. Spacious, with a sofa and writing table. Quiet and well-soundproofed, we slept like hibernating bears.
Breakfast at the hotel is a cornucopia of delights. Served buffet style in the main restaurant, there is something for everyone, ranging from made-to-order omelettes to Karelian pastries. There’s even a special non-buffet breakfast at 5-7 am, for people with early departures.
