“5* Stands out among corporate hotels - very stylish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

First rate 5* corporate hotel that has a boutique feel to it. Beds extremely comfortable, 42" flat screen 3D TV (though movies are extra) with great sound system - you can plug in your own devices - plus electronic lighting system & TV in the bathroom. Mini-expresso machine in the room, & usual extras (ironing board, hair dyer, regular kettle with tea/coffee).
Great staff on the bar, good range of beers including some limited Finnish.
Only had breakfast but that was outstanding - extensive range to choose from.
Located in town centre near the station so plenty to see/do if you have time.
Only gripe was kitchen shuts early around 8pm on Sunday & Monday.
I give it top marks for the cost i- t's what I usually pay for a corporate hotel but is streets ahead.

Very fun decor; room numbers are projected on the floor! Great breakfast; full and included. Good-sized room and showers. GREAT BED, obviously has been renovated recently. It's very close to the heart of Helsinki with good shopping around the corner. Nicer than the Radisson Blu Royal, where I had to move to be with my conference group -- that one is older.

The hotel is comfortable and the food is good. Good example of Radisson quality. Location is perfect for walking anywhere (you may have to wait a bit to get a taxi, but they always come). Most of the staff were pleasant and very helpful. The airline destroyed my suitcase and I had to buy a replacement (Stockmann's Dept store is minutes away) and the hotel disposed of my old 29" case without a problem. Very good support.

Stayed business class for 3 nights with my two daughters, room was fine, a little on the small side for 3 people. Staff and facilities were excellent. Plaza Lounge made our stay extra special. Everything we needed was in walking distance and will definitely be returning to this hotel.

Dear Tereasa1 ,

Thank you for your review.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Plaza hotel .
It's always the best choice you can make to book one of our Business class rooms. As you personally tested you can have much more benefits as Free Cinema package & the VIP lounge.
For your next booking with us , I suggest to reserve one of our Executive Business class a little larger and with Sauna included in the room .

Thank you very much for sharing your experience at Plaza hotel with other Trip Advisor users and let' s hope to see you again here.

Have a great Summer time !

Kind regards ,

Roberto B.

I came and stayed here over 20 times on business over the last 5 years -- so much so that the staff recognized me. And even though I had received a Club Carlson Gold Card for my frequent stays at this and other Radissons, this hotel would refuse to upgrade my room (a privilege given by the gold card). This was the only Radisson which refused the upgrade -- while the other ones in Helsinki, Stockholm, Tallinn and elsewhere would do it.

Other than that, the hotel is a pretty bog standard Radisson. The rooms are fine, the breakfasts are very good. The location is convenient, next to the train station and about 5 minutes' walk to Pohjolaesplenade. My only other complaint would be that the line to checkout in the morning can get a big long, so if you are traveling on business and have meetings to get to, you should try to get down to the lobby about 10-15 minutes early to do the checkout to make sure you don't get held up.

Room Tip: They are all pretty much the same, if you choose a non smoking room with a queen sized bed.

Dear Doug R ,

Thank you very much for your review.

I am happy you enjoyed our hotel's facilities and the quality of the breakfast.
As Club Carlson Gold member you are entitled to receive the best room in the category booked ( in your case it was standard ) . As complimentary Upgrade it doesn't necessarily mean the better room category ( for example Business Class rooms ) but it means also rooms located on the high floor , street view etc.
At the moment only the Club Carlson Concierge members have the benefits ( upon avalaibility ) to be upgrated automatically to the next room category .
In any case , we always recognize all our Club Carlson golden members arranging some refreshment into the room or a complimentary drink ( glass of wine , beer or water ) for their stay.

Thank you again for sharing your experience at Plaza Hotel with other Trip Advisor users.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions concerning our loyalty program.

Excellent location, next to railway station, walking distance to bus central and many restaurants and shops. Staff is smily, attentive and helpful. Renovated rooms, not spacious but well equipped. Classic Radisson breakfast with rich variety of food. Hotel perfectly suits for short business trips, but should be especially good for romantic weekends.

- Good rooms and facilities, reasonably up to date
- Very, very friendly hotel staff
- Good on-site restaurant with great service during the day, but seemingly only reasonable at night.
- The location is so perfect, one can simply walk to all the best locations in Helsinki.

Room Tip: I cannot offer any special advice upon room selection - sorry.
