“Great service and good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

Spent a couple of days here as part of our honeymoon.
The hotel location is good, within walking distance from most of the helsinki attractions and the main port. A few good supermarkets nearby.
The hotel looks nice from the outside and the lobby has a nice design which lets in a lot of light (it was very sunny the days we were there).
The reception staff were very helpful and courteous. When we told them we were there as part of our honeymoon we were upgraded to a room on a high floor with free movies. The staff answered all our enquiries in a polite and thorough manner, and when they didnt know the answer they asked others and got back to us.
The room was nice, with good amneties and a nice decor, average size, the view from the window wasnt too special, just a street-view.
Breakfast was fine, nothing special, but good variety.
All in all a good hotel with a reasonable price-tag for what is an expensive city.

Arrived at 11pm and was upgraded to business room so good start. Room was clean & large, all furnishings were modern although bathroom slightly dated but not bad at all. The room had all of the amenities you would expect and was well furnished.

Hotel itself we found to be in a good location, right in the centre of town. Terrace bar is nice touch although alcohol super expensive (7 euro for a beer) but to be expected in scandinavia.

Breakfast loads of it and buffet style. Does get really busy though so get in early. I would absolutely stay here again no doubt. We got a really good rate on Lastminute.com

Room Tip: We got a really good rate on Lastminute.com

We stayed for 3 nights and were given a beautiful spacious room with a good view. The bed was very comfortable and the room had everything we needed, including kettle, tea and coffee, iron, free wifi. The staff were all very friendly and the maid put the fresh milk we had bought in the mini bar for us while we were out. As many other guests have remarked, the breakfasts were particularly good with plenty of choice. The room in which the buffet was laid out did get very crowded but the next door restaurant and bar were also available to take your breakfast into and these were always peaceful with plenty of room.
The location was brilliant and we will definitely go back there. Compared with London hotel prices we could not believe how cheap it was for a 4 star city centre hotel.

Room Tip: rooms on floor 7 with views over Kampii have wall to wall windows

We stayed fore 3 nights before and after a trip to St Petersburg. The staff very willingly stored our cases while we did this. The room was very comfortable and had all we needed including free wifi. Superb buffet breakfast included, and lovely dinner meals also.
The staff were fluent in English and VERY helpful.
Radisson also honoured their lowest rate guarantee when I found a cheaper rate for the room after booking with them directly on the internet and gave a 25% reduction...well done. It was handy (10 minute walk) from the train station and airport shuttle bus stop on the city.
We enjoyed the lovely summer weather in Helsinki, and the excellent service of the staff at the Royal....thank you

Hotel is old, runned down with odd smells.
Reception refused to book a taxi for me.
Restaurant for breakfast much too small and over crowded. Beds ok but with noisy aircon.
I will not go there anymore.

I stayed at the hotel Radisson Blu Royal Helsinki 3 nights and I was very happy. Hotel is very clean and the city center near the train station. (10 min. walk). The hotel is near many shopping opportunities. Staff are nice. Check in and check out quickly and without waiting. Breakfast is great. Highly recommended hotel !
