“Hotel in central location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is in quite central location.
The service was great.
The breakfast buffet was nice.
Free wlan was included.
The room itself wasn't great though. I had a normal room (not "business"). It was a bit worn out and appeared quite old. Cleanliness was ok though not perfect (hair in the shower walls).

In summary, ok to stay, though it wouldn't be my primary choice next week for a business trip.

Walkable distance from Central station through the mall. Staff is helpful. They brought us extra heater when we complaint that the heater in room is not warm enough. They also brought us a guide book "to room" for us when we asked about map or guide book.

Spent 3 nights visiting Helsinki staying in Raddison Blu. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable all you could ask for. Very central position especially for tourist stuff.

Only complaint would be the temperature of the room,slightly on cool side and pillows,not very supportive.

stayed here recently for business, good central location close to shops and all central areas. Received a room upgrade which was very nice and appreciated, rooms were clean and functional. Breakfast was OK but could be better, also breakfast room was dark and uninspiring.

Although slightly clinical looking from the outside this hotel offers great service and comfort. The hotel is next door to a shopping center and bus station. Taxi ride from the airport is around €50 but you could also take the bus. Interior is very modern and scandinavian. Staff speak good english, room was very clean and our bussiness class room, on the 5th floor, was very well equipped. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the food was good although the vegetarian choice is rather limited. Breakfast is also good with lots to choose from. All in all a great place to stay. We certainly found the staff very friendly and most helpfull!

Room Tip: The upgrade to bussiness class is well worth it!

Centrally located hotel provides good access to the most of the city hot spots. It's next to Kamppi station, meaning withing walking distance from the very city center. Rooms are comfortable and specious, standard Radisson set of amenities. Room was a bit cold even with a switched on heating system. Very helpful and funny bar staff helped a lot and made my stay more pleasant. The only real problem is internet connection (it is funny, but they call it high-speed - id din't find neither high nor speed). But speed of the internet and strength of the wi-fi signal is a common problem in Finland's hotels, so it might be considered not as an issue but as a standard. Otherwise good hotel for a short stay with everything you might need.

This is very good hotel for 110 - 120 Euro/night price range. Reasonably big rooms with good amenities even at basic rate (they also have business class), good (slightly dated) bathroom, central location, a lot of restaurants and shops around, decent breakfast – this is almost ideal place for business trip unless you prefer to try some design hotels (which is totally different category).
Air-conditioning and ventilation is a bit offensive, but I must admit that I’m sensitive to that stuff – also I saw hotels with MUCH worse setup you can't controll at all.
