Stayed here in order to do two gigs on the same weekend - Rammstein at Rock the Beach and Nightwish at Tuska. I didn't realise in advance, but this hotel is where the bands stay for Tuska and also where the event is managed from. Hence met a ton of really cool musicians. Hotel is also excellent, well placed with very courteous staff.

This is a great hotel. It is centrally located, has fluffy duvets, a TV in the washroom and an amazing breakfast buffet. The buffet has everything from brie, to karelian pasties to eggs to bacon and a juice machine run by an ipad! If you are looking for a quiet hotel that looks after their guests, look no further. It is only a 10 minute walk to Stockmann!

Room Tip: I would go for the executive suite. It has a comfy couch and a king sized bed.

This hotel was beautiful and clean and the service was very good. Breakfast buffet was incredible. Lots of fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, fish, pancakes and more. I couldn't believe that such a nice buffet came with the price of the room.

This was our second stay here and had a great night again!
Check in was smooth and easy but not very friendly, very much like the check out also. Reception was pretty busy during our check in/out though.
As CC Gold I was upgraded to business room on top floor (no view though), room has suberb, firm king bed, 46 inch (?) 3D tv with 3d glasses, tv in bathroom, nespresso maker.. As we had baby with us, I had requested a baby bed beforehand which was promply arranged. I had also requested an early check in ja asked also for a late check out, both were provided!
We sipped some coffee in nicely furbished Plaza Lounge, breakfast we had downstairs with "other people" :)
Breakfast is absolutetly fantastic!! Made to order eggs and omeletts etc..
The breakfast is my second favorite thing here after the bathroom tv!
Only downer with the property is the poor parking, hotels garage was full so we had to take our car pretty far away, which is always nogood with the baby..

Room Tip: Business room with bathroom tv!

A TA friend suggested last year that I join the Radisson’s Club Carlson and I can’t thank her enough for the tip. Applying the reward points from our stay at another Radisson property, we were able to reduce the hotel rate at the Radisson Blu Plaza. There are other useful benefits too, like an automatic room upgrade for 20 €.

We took the Finn Air airport shuttle bus to the bus terminal next to the Central Railway Station and walked a few minutes across the plaza to our hotel. Although we arrived before 3 pm, we were able to check in immediately and begin our sightseeing day in Helsinki.

The hotel is a pleasant walk to the Esplanade and the ferry boat piers. It’s also easy to take the metro or trams to the Hakaniemi Market Hall. For dinner, we walked a few minutes to the main street near the bus terminal and hopped on a tram to Ravintola Kuu. During White Nights, going for a walk after dinner feels like taking an afternoon stroll!

Our room was a superior one on a higher floor. Spacious, with a sofa and writing table. Quiet and well-soundproofed, we slept like hibernating bears.

Breakfast at the hotel is a cornucopia of delights. Served buffet style in the main restaurant, there is something for everyone, ranging from made-to-order omelettes to Karelian pastries. There’s even a special non-buffet breakfast at 5-7 am, for people with early departures.

The hotel i located in the centre of Helsinki just across the street from the railway station. Public transportation to the airport can be found on both sides of the railway station.

The hotel has all the facilities you need, but it is quite expensive. I was there on a business trip. Else I would probably tried to look for a cheaper hotel.

The fitness room was quite small and not very well equipped. The brakfast was great.

There are several options for shopping, eating and nightlife in the area.

Average hotel. Very friendly helpful staff, but the restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday and they turn the air conditioning off at night so you are sweating in the morning. Located next to train station and close to market square and shopping.
