“Helsinki business trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Hotel in great location, sumptuous comfort and excellent sauna. Staff were first rank, so business stay was unstressful and enjoyable. Close by train station, but far enough distant to be untroubled while being only a 5 minute walk from the trains and airport bus.

Radisson blu plaza is right at the main railway station, so it gives you access to every transportation means in the country. the rooms are big and confortable, with nice big LED tv and excellent beds for a good night's sleep. they are kept very clean. the stuff is very polite and helpful. the breakfast is of great quality and the restaurant is very good and well-priced for Finnish standards. I did not try the sauna, which is included in the price. A bit overpriced for my finances, but still it is a hotel I would use again if I go to Helsinki. Good work by Pia at the Hub Bar!

Dear Stavrospgr,

Thank you for your kind and wonderful review. It really makes us all happy to read reviews like yours. It is good to know we are meeting our goals and our guests feel happy and comfortable at our hotel.

Did you know that you can also connect your own laptop or music player to our TV so you can make sure you get to see your favourite programs and listen to your own music while away from home.
It's also nice to hear you had time to enjoy our Super Breakfast buffet.

I hope we will see you soon again. And next time make some time to give a try to the sauna as well.
I will also tell your greetings to Pia.

With best regards,

A really good modern clean hotel. Boasts 140 different choices of breakfast, it's probably true there seemed a big choice. The beds were the most comfortable I have slept in around the world. Just a good safe clean bet to stay at. Reasonably priced, 5 day stay well worth it.

Dear DodgieEam,

Thank you very much for your super kind review, it is always a great pleasure to read reviews like yours. Especially we loved the comment of your writing "The beds were the most comfortable I have slept in around the world". I personally also think that the breakfast is the most important meal of the day - and from our Super Breakfast you can find almoust everything what you need - and of course our local specialities.

I wish you a pleasant spring time and hopefully to see you soon back at Plaza!

With kind regards,

Mr. Heikki Päätalo

Hotel has great location (just beside railway station) so you can shop till you drop and still manage to walk back. Kiasma, Parliament house etc. are located nearby as well. Staff was great, room was as nice as expected. I'll definitely stay there again if I have the chance. And I recommend this hotel gladly to everyone. My visit was for two nights and mostly business so I couldn't enjoy this hotel as much as I wanted to. Maybe next time I'll have some time to relax other than just sleep.

We stayed here with the family for a long weekend. The location and rooms are ok, as one would expect from the hotel with this name. Restaurant service was one of the worst I saw in a while: during breakfast they run out of either pancakes, or plates, or juice etc...., for dinner we had to pick up menus ourselves, and they took order in about 20 minutes. The staff seemed to be quite friendly, but there were too few of them. In a business where you know your occupancy upfront, how one can go so wrong with staffing? 5 star hotel??

This hotel is very clean and very kindness, but high cost. If you come to Heltinki, you should stay in this hotel. Safty and beautifl room. Free wifi conect is very fast, but slow time and fast time in it. The hotel is near the stasion and city, if you visit sightseeing, this hotel is very confortable.
