“Modern, quiet, perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

This hotel is in a great location. We arrived from Russia by train so it was within walking distance from the main railway station. There is a Metro station and trams nearby and the Airport Bus leaves from the plaza next to the train station. (Bus is a 30 minute service costing 5Euros - bargain). Location is within walking distance to Market Square and several tourist destinations. We stayed for 4 nights in an Executive room which was quiet and very clean. We enjoyed the coffee machine, large bed with 'bed menu', and excellent WiFi. However, for an Executive room the bathroom (& bath) are small. I asked for a second luggage rack and a different pillow and they were provided the same day. The modern decor is stunning, especially the interesting light fittings. The breakfast buffet was extensive and very good - best scrambled eggs ever! We appreciated the comfy Executive Lounge and their tasty snack offerings in the evenings when we were tired after being out all day. All staff we spoke to were polite, helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Book and Executive Room if you can

Excellent hotel in an excellent location. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The lighting on the different floors made it difficult to find my way around originally, but this lighting was also good for telling people that your room needs to be cleaned. In the rooms the design and furniture was excellent. The hotel gym was very basic and they could do with some heavier dumbbells, getting rid of their multi gym and putting some air in the exercise balls. The breakfast was a meal I didn't want to end!

Room Tip: Ask that your room not be beside the maid's station - they start cleaning early and make a lot o...

Der lucas oce ,

Thank you for the accurate review.
I am glad to read you liked the service of our staff and our super central location.
The hotel Plaza's positition certainly represents an added value for our guests ; indeed all the majority capital 's spots are reacheble walking.
I will forward your suggestion for the GYM to the hotel manager too , it' s important to ensure that all the tools are in good condition .

Again many thanks for sharing your experience with other Trip advisor users.

Have a great Summer time !

Kind regards ,

Shared a room with other 2 friends; room and bathroom had a good space, were clean and the wifi internet worked fine. Great breakfast and staff, and the hotel is very close to a subway station and in a walking-distance from the main train station and some famous attractions!

Looking forward to accommodate you and your friends when ever you got the chance to come back to Finland! Have great summer time and of course enjoy the FIFA World Cup!

Located next to the plaza, with a central railway station across. Newly built or renovated. Book an executive room, and gives you extra space and services for a small premium.

Plentiful breakfast, quiet room. Almost perfect.

Could be on expensive side if you book with a short notice, so plan ahead, if you could.

Dear Kostiantyn,

Thank you so much for your kind review, our hotel was fully renovated at 2012 - originally opened in 1999. In now days our hotel is the first class modern luxury hotel with combine of history and design. There is lot of design items from Finnish and international designers such as Alvar Aalto, Eero Aarnio and Georg Jensen.

TIP: Book next time the Executive Suite to get even bigger room with the special view to facing with Finnish National Gallery.

Greetings to your family and have nice summer time!

The rooms were ok, nothing too fancy. Modern style hotel with decent rooms that have a small bathroom. I had the economy room which are not usually very big. I know the hotel has bigger rooms with Sauna etc. Overall, ok hotel, clean rooms and quite average for the high price. However, the breakfast buffet was very good.

We stayed in a Business room, which was in the newer wing, extremely modern and with a very nice bed. The view was for the courtyard so nothing fancy (this hotel probably doesn't have any spectacular views anyway), but the location is very central in Helsinki yet still quiet at least on the wing we stayed on. The breakfast in the Executive lounge was very good. Room service was fast even at 2 a.m.

Dear Juho H ,

Thank you very much for your wonderful review.

I am happy you fall in love with the Magic Dreams bed of Finnish Radisson Blu Hotels.
You are totally right we are in the middle of everything and all the most important capital spots are walking reachable.
To reserve the Business Class room is the best choice you can make , for only few euros more you can have much more benefits as free movie cinema package and the exclusive use of our VIP lounge.
I will forward you positive feedback to our night staff too for the room service efficiency.

I am very thankful for sharing your experience at Plaza Hotel with other Trip Advisor users.

Have a great Summer time ,

Roberto B.

Beautiful rooms with own private sauna. In busy period rooms are very expensive. We paid almost 400 euros per night. And due to overbooking we had to share one room. Because we had to share the room we were given an acceptable discount on number of nights we had to pay.

Dear Mariacaamrs V,

Thank you very much for taking time write about your experience and sharing it here at TripAdvisor.com. Last week was one of busiest weeks here in Helsinki, when the whole city is fully booked the room prices can be a little bit higher than usually (compere the airline pricing.)

It is so nice to read that you enjoyed our rooms, you got our Executive Business room with the own sauna - I personally highly recommend those for our international travelers to get your own private sauna experience - from some of those rooms the in room TV at bathroom is located opposite the sauna - so you can even watch the football game at the same time!

Looking forward to see you soon back at Plaza!

Have great summer time!

Kind regards,
