“just ok for business”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

I visited this hotel at the end of November
I felt the hotel is ok especially for quick visits for business. The check-in is quick and efficient. My room was rather small and with a very tiny bathroom. And the bathroom despite what I thought was marble it looked a bit tired and old. I appreciated the facilities in the room for a hot cup but that is kind of standards in the Nordics to be fair.
I could not use the sauna unfortunately as I arrived late and had to leave early.
Breakfast was great!

Stayed only one night. Room was ok; clean, little bit outdated decour, good bed - no complaints there. But the breakfast... I was waiting for a good breakfast with large selection of fresh fuits and breads and cold cuts, cheeses etc. But no. Terrible queue, no clean drinking glasses, no cutlery, no fresh fuits what so ever and all in all just a poor breakfast. So disappointed.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

After having a bad experience at the Best Western Katajanokka, we switched to the Radisson Blue Royal. We were much happier here. The rooms were clean and more spacious. The hotel was also centrally located near the railway station. The staff was pleasant. All in all, we had a good stay!

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of November with friends. Twin room was spacious, bathroom floor was heated. All very clean. Buffet breakfast had lots of choice. There are single-sex saunas in the basement, but they're only open for a couple of hours a day strangely. We walked all over Helsinki - never needed to use public transport - and we were happy with the location here.

Room is excellent. Big, well lit and clean. Bathroom well equipped, clean and modern. Big flat screen tv in the rooms. Breakfast is very good. Lots of food. Wide range. We enjoyed walking to the Christmas market and city centre where all the shops are. Stockmann is a good place to shop for anything you want, with a supermarket at the basement. Sokos is another good place to shop, both within walking distance from Radisson Blu.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We arrived at the hotel very late but were warmly welcomed by the helpful staff who quickly checked us into our rooms. As requested in advance we had 2 rooms - one with a king sized bed and the other arranged for the junior members of our party with 2 singles and a fold out bed. Both rooms were clean, spacious and well equipped. A highlight for some of us was the sauna, and for others the excellent breakfast which had sufficient variety and quality to please even the pickiest of pallets.
