This is a very nice hotel near the train station. The hotel is in a fairly good condition and has all the amenities you can hope for. The city centre is just a step away but the location is not too noisy..

I have stayed in other Radisson Blu hotels in Helsinki that was not so good -- this one is something different. Nicely situated in the city centre, walking distance to shops and restaurants.
The interior of the hotel is refurbished in an old fashion way that is very delightful.

The rooms in the "old" part is very nice, not large but comfortable. Beds are excellent with a very good sleeping quality. I stayed at the 7th floor so I heard no street noises.

One complaint was the poor quality of the TV broadcasting with a lot of digital drop outs creating problems with both sound and picture.

Wifi-lan good, you are able to work with several devices at the same time without any extra charges (smartphone, pad and laptop).

Breakfast buffet was good and served in a very nice milieu as well but as earlier mentioned in a review they can't handle the scrambled eggs and bacon....

Room Tip: There are two styles in the hotel. I stayed in the classic/old part that now has beautiful refurbis...

I have stayed in a lot of hotels in 2012 (news years resolution is to rate them more often) and this is very near the top.

Staff were helpful (returning a dropped phone) and lovely to be with. Room was clean, stylish and above all a good temperature to sleep in and the room service food was outstanding. I would defintely recommend staying here.

Stayed at Plaza for three nights recently. What can I say...It is a very nice and a VERY stylish hotel. Plenty of interior elements are an original Finnish design which is really cool. The room is equipped with everything you might need. Excellent sleep quality (Blu Dreams concept is something very special: you can choose different kind of pillows, duvets, and other cool things absolutely free of charge, even a massage!). Smiley and cheerful housekeeping staff.
Breakfast is very good. Loved small shots of "energy" (blackberry, pineapple-carrot, etc. juice shots). The only thing that left a bit mixed feeling is a bread selection: does not taste amazingly fresh, especially the croissants, but surely it is my subjective opinion.
The personnel is very friendly and helpful. Especially would like to thank Heikki, lounge and guest relations manager for doing a great job!
Will definitely come back again!

I would highly recommend the Radisson blu Helsinki hotel, were very satisfied with the service and location. The best breakfast I have ever had in a hotel ain a nice decorated breakfast room. Every morning I was looking forward to going there and wished breakfast time was never finished. Our room was in the older section therefore a bit small but so quiet and a comfortable bed and had very nice sleep.

Stayed: December 2012, traveled as a couple

My family of 4 adults stayed one night at the Radison Blu Plaza hotel in Helsinki on Dec. 21. We were all impressed by the level of service at the reception desk. They were welcoming, helpful, and always pleasant.

Our rooms were comfortable and well equipped. The bed was very comfortable and the room had a sofa as well. I appreciated the water kettle with coffee and tea and the heated bathroom floor. The room temperature was comfortable, and the bedding was especially cozy. The room-number lighting in the hallway was unique, but even more so for us first-time visitors to Finland was figuring out how to turn on the room lights in the dark. We had a good laugh at ourselves and eventually got the room key in the right slot so the lights came on.

The hotel is in a great location. We walked to a nice restaurant that was recommended by the hotel. The next morning, after our best breakfast in Finland, we walked to the Christmas Market. The receptionist held our luggage and called a taxi for us. When we returned from the market, the cab was there an we were off to Levi.

Taxi fare for 3-4 adults from the airport was around 45 Euros.

Room Tip: You need to insert your room key into a slot above the light switches to provide power to the lights...
