    Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Helsinki

    A truly wonderful hotel.


    Helsinki was a surprise--I had expected to find a place worth no more than a day at best (after reading several guidebooks), but I could have stayed longer. The downtown area is a real pleasure to wander, the food was superlative and there was plenty to do in the area. The Radisson SAS Plaza is very well-located a short block from the railway station, and three blocks from the Esplanade, and is one block from the tram line. The building has been renovated into a very modern hotel, with really nice rooms with all the amenities. The breakfast buffet was better than most I found at Radisson hotels in Scandinavia, and the price for the room was outstanding. Would definitely come back.

    OK for one night!


    I stayed at SAS Radisson Plaza for one night in Helsinki for one night in June 2005. The staff is very friendly and helpful, a lot of Japanese tourists stay here, room was ok, nothing fancy, great buffet breakfast in the morning.

    Highly recommended


    We stayed 2 nights at this hotel in July.

    It was excellent, straightforward, modern (opened 1999?) and fantastic value for money. We paid GBP 60 per night, including breakfast. Location could not be better: 2 mins walk from the railway station (and hence the airport bus) to a quiet side-road (but close enough to the main square to feel safe which is saying something since this is probably the safest city we've visited), and pretty much central and within walking distance to everything that matters in downtown Helsinki (10 - 15 mins to the market square.)

    Very pleasant and helpful staff on reception. Our non-smoking and smartly decorated room was spotless and was well equipped with with a brightly-lit bathroom, step in shower, heated bathroom floor tiles, hairdrier, iron, trouser press, air-con, and very comfortable bed (with duvets!!). We would have liked to have been able to open the windows during the warm night but I guess that's why there's air con. Breakfast was standard fare for large city hotels.

    By no means the poshest hotel in Helsinki, the SAS Plaza wins on price, location and standards. Highly recommended.

    A Perfect Hotel in a Perfect Location


    We stayed at the Radisson SAS Plaza on April 26-28, 2005 and couldn't

    have been happier. It is just across Railway Square from the central

    train station and down a quiet side street. The location is absolutely

    perfect for seeing the sights of Helsinki or (obviously) for business, since

    there were many American business people staying here during our visit.

    The rooms are elegant and surprisingly large and the bathrooms are

    gorgeous, with heated floors and marble around the sink. The lobby is cozy and personable, with quick coffee service for those who do not have time for the wonderful breakfast. The breakfast rooms are beautiful, with wooden carvings and chandeliers. The bar was excellent, with deep upholstered chairs and good soft lighting. I could not think of a better place

    to stay in Helsinki. And for a true four-star hotel, it is a pretty good value as well.

    Great location


    This hotel is very centrally located (by the railway station), but in spite of its central location, it's very quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful, my room was clean and quiet and breakfast is abundant and very good (as in most hotels in the Nordic countries). I know where I'll be staying when I return to Helsinki!

    You can't do any better . . .


    Great hotel, great location, great staff, great breakfast. Our experience was everything you could hope for in a nice hotel. We stayed for 5 days and enjoyed everything. It was not that cheap, but you get quality for the price. There is a cute local cafe right next door that kept us warm a few nights (we travelled over Christmas). Beautiful park right outside. The staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful - they suggested several excursions. We recommend the day trip to Tallin, it was a beautiful city.

    Great hotel


    I stayed there over a weekend in the spring. Weekend rates were very good, location is perfect, breakfast is excellent and staff were very helpful. Definitely recommended!

    Not clean hotel


    This hotel was booked via website and the promising price was not met by the hotel administration, so watch out!

    The manager of the hotel was nice. When we entered our room, which was discribed as scandinavian by the other review, we were amazed by the dust in all room, and the whole look was not clean, and shabby. However, the manager replied to my concerns and made a free upgrade to business class. Even this business class suite I asked to clean first, though.

    It seems they have broblems with cleaning ladies that do not do job properly and did not check the reserved accomodations prior guests arrival.

    As for breakfast, was not so good as I used to eat at home or other US hotels. Just a lot of people around.

    Watch out their coffee, not very good.

    The location is perfect, I would use the same location but may be the different hotel.

    Good luck

    Simply the best


    excellent hotel .. really perfect .. great location .. quiet ... free sauna .. great breakfast buffet and excellent staff ... will return always

    This hotel has it all!


    This is a great hotel; it really has it all.

    A great central location, near the train station and National Theatre.

    Rooms are large with various themes. Ours was 'Scandinavian', with birch wood furniture, wooden flooring and lots of glass. Bathroom had a bath and shower.

    The breakfasts are huge, with a choice of whatever you can imagine!

    The hotel staff were all friendly and polite, and couldn't do enough to help.

    All this plus a free sauna!

    After Oxford we had a 3 night stay in Coventry with a school friend of Leith's. It was nice for Leith to meet up again and for us to meet her husband. They immediately said there was a lot to see and after lunch drove us to the Cathedral and its environs.

    After a night ferry ride into Helsinki we arrived at 9.55am. We departed the ferry and headed for the bus. Our tour guide was ready and waiting to give us a guided tour of the city.

    Helsinki is nice but does not stand out in the mind like Stockholm that was simply stunning.

    We were taken around the sights of the city including the …

    Helsinki, Finland

    ... You can see many examples of Finnish homes there along with bridges and walking trails. That afternoon we had an early dinner in a Victorian style restaurant in the center near the Harbor, a place famous for the poets and writers who used to gather there. That night we went to a local Pub to sample some Finnish Beer. We said our goodbyes to Larissa as our flight to Berlin would leave early the next morning.

    All in all ...
