Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Helsinki

Reviewed October 28, 2012

The facilities at this hotel were superb! The restaurant and bar were great, the breakfast buffet offered more variety and quantity than any other hotel I used in Scandinavia. The desk staff was helpful when I asked them questions. Probably my only complain was that my room's bathroom wasn't replenished with soaps and shampoos very often. Other than that, the bed was great, very comfortable, and the room a decent size for a "single" in Europe. The hotel is within a two minute walk of the Metro station and a ten minute was from the central train station. An airport shuttle bus departs frequently from the said train station.

Stayed: February 2012, traveled as a couple

I arrived late in the evening and was pleased to experience a very fast check-in including an upgrade to an even better room, which proved to be quite big with a nice bathroom and an extremely comfy bed. The latter resulted in a very good night's sleep indeed! Breakfast buffet was good with a wide variety of choices. Support in access to the business center and check-out was expedient, too.

Room Tip: Go high and ask for an upgrade.

Location of this hotel is much better than you might think. Just few minutes walk to the Kamppi metro station and Kamppi shopping center, close to Tavastia rock club and Tennispalatsi movie theaters.

My room was very spacious and clean. Bed was really comfy and I had nice view over the snowy rooftops of Helsinki. Bathroom was big, clean and had make up mirror, which is always nice.

Bed was a bit high and the shower was in a bath tub. So, I would think that for a person with problems with climbing this might be a problem.

Breakfast was good but breakfast room was a bit too crowded.

Stayed here in September 2012.Easy walking distance to the harbour and sights.
Bedroom smaller than expected and windows don't open.Breakfast room very crowded on our first morning but less crowded 2nd morning.
Staff basically friendly but one concierge could do with a personality makeover.Don't expect help with your luggage.
Ate in the restaurant one evening.Didnt book but staff very helpful and made a table available for us.

Dear Guest
Thank you for you feedback. Most of our standard rooms
are 26 square meters, so they are quite large I wouid say.
There are few smaller rooms aswell, usually for single use
Next time you are coming to Helsinki I am sure we can find
nice large room for you

Best regars

Nice hotel in a convenient location. It's approx 5-10mins walk to the train station, where the finnair aiport bus drops the passengers. Decent breakfast buffet spread as well . A very short walk to the city center as well.

Stayed here for five nights on a long weekend. Clean rooms with very comfortable beds. Good breakfast included in our price, a little bit crowded in the breakfast room. Friendly staff both in reception and in the restaurant. A short walk to the city if you do not want to take the tram.

We arrived to Helsinki around 03:45 a.m, after some non-sense at the Russian border, which took us like 2:30 hours to solve. Our cruise would leave at 16:00 so we needed some shelter.
No rooms available at Sokos Presidentti (I've stayed 3-4 times there), or hotels in the vicinity so wandering the streets we saw Radisson Blu Royal. We took our chance and, first thing we saw when the doors opened was the warm smile of the guys at the reception.
Is there any free room available?-Yes, there are? For how many nights??-the typical question. But it was very calming their answer when i said: Just one night, please!! so we stayed and I should say that the room was good. Really comfy, spacious, clean, 5*!!
Breakfast was not bad, though my modest opinion is that breakfast at Sokos Presidentti are somehow better.. still no complains.
Within walking-distance from the Central Station, as well as the night attractions of the city.
