“excellent place to stay”
Reviewed February 27, 2011

I have stayed in this hotel for few nights. The hotel has a high standard. It is located in the city, almost in the centre, very close to hot spots. Rooms are quiet, cozy and very clean. Beds are comfortable. Food is delicious. The stuff is reliable and helpful if needed. Price adequate to the standard and location of the hotel. I have stayed there with my family but the hotel is excellent for business purpose, conferences, meetings etc. I haven't found anything against this hotel. I fully recommend it.

We went to Helsinki for a weekend break in february - which turned out to be a really cold choice - literally! Helsinki in winter is much colder than we expected. But that is probably why we got a bargain price at hotels.com, so we enjoyed our weeked anyhow. Very happy then that we booked a nice hotel though!

The Blue Royal is just what you expect from a Radisson-hotel; good size rooms, great service, central location and up to date interior. We very much liked our stay! The breakfast is a must-do, as the buffee is about the best we've tried. Also we recommend having dinner at the in-house restaurant Grill It!. Michelin-recommended, and absolutely worth a try. Only downfall I can think of abou this hotel was the fire-alarm going off late at night, and very little info was given about the incident.. But alls well that ends well - and altogheter we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

Pros: I stayed for one night only but could have gladly stayed longer. Nice room and a nice bathroom, very good location in Helsinki.

I spend three nights in a premium room in Radisson Blu Royal at Helsinki. I have to say that rooms and breakfast etc are reasonable, but the service was really upsetting. We had troubles with the reception staff and they did not want to grant my colleague the meal vouchers we were entitled. They kept claiming we don't get those from weedend nights but only weekdays, becouse you don't work on weekends...! (it's a business traveller's loyalty program)I wonder in what world are they living at. Then we had problems with towels not being changed as well as very rude staff saying one thing on the phone and another when you go down. Basically they had us running up and down to fetch things and not getting them.

Cultural differences could not have been the case, since we're Finns. Location is nice, but becouse of the disturbing personnel and customer service, I would not recommend this hotel.

This hotel was a great choice... very comfortable, and well located to central Helsinki. The hotel feels (particularly from the outside) a bit dated/seventies, but it is very modern inside. Our room was enormous, the bathroom was large, the bed was super comfortable and the room was incredibly quiet. We had great service from the front desk... although we ate in the hotel restaurant a few nights, they also gave us some recommendations for some great local restaurants (including a fantastic Thai restaurant). The breakfast was great, with a large, fresh selection.!! We were very happy staying here!!

We have stayed at Radisson Royal with a friend for a couple of nights during one of the December weekends.

The hotel is situated right nearby the central railway station, but at the same time in the very silent and nice looking street called Mikonkatu. It takes about 3-5 minutes to get to the bus which heads to the airport (btw, the travel time is about 30-40 minutes, taxi is much quicker) and 5-7 minutes to get to the Central Entrance to the Railway Station. Thus, the location is abolutely fantastic, cause shopping areas (Stockmann, Kamp, Kamppi), main attractions and the historic part of the city itself are all situated around the hotel.

There is a couple of ok restaurants in the neighbouring building, we have tried Mexican Maya. You may have a lunch there, but Mexican Cantina West on Kasarmikatu is much better.

The hotel itself is quite big, thus check-in and check-out may take quite some time. Even if the line is big, only two or three guys are working at the reception desk.

Breakfast is ok, as everywhere. There are some saunas at the hotel, working in the mornings and in the evenings.

The rooms are nice, the floor in the bathroom is heated,but still the hotel itelf is a bit old and may be renovated in the nearest years.
