I've been waiting for a hotel that deserves five stars, and this is it: Nordic hospitality at its very best. The hotel is a few steps away from the railroad station, so it is a perfect location whether traveling on train or airport transportation. The rooms are beautifully decorated, modern, and have state-of the-art equipment. The hotel has an amazing complementary breakfast buffet that caters for lactose-free and gluten free diets as well. I didn't have time to use the gym, but the sauna was top-notch and clean, just excellent. [For Finns only: upeat, pehmeät löylyt]. My only complaint is that they don't have allergy-free rooms, rather, they change the non-allergenic bedding on arrival. For people seriously allergic and asthmatic, this might cause problems, as it did for me. They did comply, though, and changed my bedding for a second time. The service was professional and friendly in a Nordic kind of way. I will stay here again in an instant and will be happy to recommend it to anybody.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 7th floor and had no noise problems whatsoever.

We were arriving by train and sought Trip Advisor for best options. The good reviews it has received are endorsed by us. Location was as reported just across the bus plaza from the train station an easy walk even pulling cases. Our checkin was fast and easy given we were a little early, reception staff was great, helpful with good advice.
The first thing as you approach your room is the unusual down lights in the hallways (seems a bit on the dark side) but then the room numbers are large numbers lit from the floor at your door (quite a novelty) but they also serve a purpose - turn the switch inside and it goes red for do not disturb or green for clean my room. The room is quite roomy given this is an older building - but totally refurbished. The wooden panelling behind the bed and across the ceiling is effective decoration but hides lighting which is a plus given a lot of hotel rooms don't have a central light. The bed was very comfy, the 4 pillows provided were the soft down type - the doona's cosy. "He" gets hot so asked for a lighter doona which was delivered very quickly. There was just one chair though so one person had to sit on the bed when you took a break in your room. Good cupboard space, tea and coffee facility, iron and board and lots of plugs to charge up our various "toys".
The bathroom had been re-tiled on floor and walls so everything was very clean and modern. There was a shower with good pressure over the bath.
Breakfast provided good choices with staff very efficient and friendly.
There are many popular cafes nearby - we didn't eat in house but did note a good casual cafe in the reception area.
Wifi was available free but was a bit inconsistent having to log back in many times during our 3 day stay.
We took a bus from the other side of the railway station to the airport - just a 10 minute walk from the hotel to the bus and 25 minutes to terminal 2.
Would highly recommend Radisson Blu Plaza for you stay in Helsinki.

this hotel for me has a great location situated just off the plaza with the bus and rail and tram stations a very short walk, its also fairly central for all the attractions and shopping, the rooms are in good order, well decorated and have a modern contemporary feel with all the modern things you would expect, wifi, fridge, lcd tv etc, the staff are amazingly helpfull and efficient whilst being welcoming, the price of my room compared to other well located hotels was very competitive, breakfast buffet was plentiful, a good trip and a great hotel.

Room Tip: business room if you can stretch to it

great hotel, great team behind the counter to the concierge and the breakfast team. nobody throws attitude, nobody acts snobbish, my pre-concieved outlook towards finnish people has changed by staying at the plaza raddisson. very positive and very cooperating team. excellent arty rooms especially the way they display room no and the do not disturb setting (very very cool), ipad breakfast (took me a minute to figure how it works). great location from the station. cant be a better hotel in helsinki in my opinion ! great show guys. keep it up.

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.
