“Comfy beds, excellent service and nice rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It is the second time I stay at this hotel and I love the quality of the beds. The rooms have been really good, however second time the bathroom had a sulfur smell to it. The service of the staff is excellent. I enjoyed both the breakfast and the food in the restaurant. The portier was really sweet and service minded.

I have stayed here over 3 months from January to December 2014 and it's a good business hotel. Rooms are generally clean (it really depends on the house cleaner). The bathtub is deep and provides a relaxing soak at the end of a long day. The bed is comfortable. The breakfast spread is good with options for cold cuts, cereal, fruits, as well as an omelette bar. Concierge is friendly. Staff is polite.

The location is central, close to the train station. And a short walk to downtown.

The decor is minimalist Nordic with Finnish design elements throughout.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the quiet side (inner courtyard), you'll see other rooms but you will not hear t...

We stayed for a long weekend. The staff were very helpful and friendly, despite a mix up with our rooms which was quickly rectified. The breakfast is a superb buffet of excellent food, served in the lovely dining area. The rooms are sufficiently modern, spacious and on the higher floors are very quiet. We initially had a room on the 2nd floor opposite a nightclub which sent thumping bass through the whole room, luckily we were only in that room for about 10 minutes before moving to a room higher up on the 4th floor. This room was very quiet. There is also very little noise from the corridors and neighbouring rooms. The location is very hard to beat. It's just 2 minutes from the main railway station and bus depot, about 5 minutes to Senate Square and the harbour, 2 minutes to Aleksanterinkatu, and a short tram ride to Temppeliaukion kirkko and Sibelius Park. I would happily stay here again, but I would certainly make sure my room was nowhere near the night club located opposite the south side of the building.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the Aussie Bar club located to the south (Vilhonkatu 6). The noise of the t...

I had a satisfactory stay here. It's a comfortable hotel very close to the city centre. The staff I would call polite, but not really friendly. I have stayed in more modern and better Radisson hotels I have to say. This one had a bit of a dated 'allure'. But in all in all almost everything was relatively okay. Good breakfast. The only really negative was that we (3 30-something friends) were promised three equal beds. But we got one double and one really small children's camping bed. My friend tried the camping bed one night, but had severe back pain from it. When we complained about this at reception, they did not seem to care very much. After minutes of discussing this, we finally got them to put a normal mattress on the floor in our room (we came up with that idea ourselves as noone seemed to care enough to propose a solution). It was a good quality mattress, but because it as put on the floor, it all felt like camping/glamping. Not really what I would expect in a Radisson Hotel. ;-(

This is a great hotel to stay at. The location is centrally located right next to the train station within walking distance of anywhere you'd want to go. The staff is friendly, rooms are clean and WiFi is included.

Location, location, location. The hotel is near the central train station and the airport bus (Finnair bus, and public bus 615). It is also within walking distance of most major attractions.

My room on 7th floor was very spacious, clean and modern. Bed of comfy. Bathroom is clean. Water is strong and hot.

Service was good. I have no problem at all. Check-in was speedy. Free wifi was great.

I didn't try the sauna, restaurant, or exercise room. Since I had a morning flight, I did not have the free breakfast but I did pick up a grab-n-go breakfast from the lobby.

We spent a great time in Helsinki for my birthday including a marvelous hotel, making our stay perfect. Actually our expectations from the hotel were well exceeded, starting from the welcoming, the atmosphere, the facilities and services, everything was just great.
