On Monday afternoon, 13 August 2012 we boarded the large Silja Serenade Ferry at the Stockholm Port to commence a 16hour overnight cruise though the Archipelago (thousands of small islands adjacent to the Scandinavian Countries) and then to cross the Baltic sea to Helsinki in Finland. The ferry was about 230m long and 71m wide and had around 2,840 …
Very early start this morning as Ulla & Idamaria are flying to Austria to go skiing & I need to have the rental car back in Helsinki by noon. It was still dark as I left Uusikaupunki at 8am. There were signs of yesterdays severe storms with many fallen trees & some downed power lines.
I made it safely back to Helsinki & checked …
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 …
We started our tour of Zoos around the World today with a visit to Helsinki Zoo, the most Northern Zoo in the world that has animals from all the world in it. Felt sorry for the kangaroo and emu, they are not really built for Northern winters, It is set on an island and we got there via ferry. Was a lovely zoo - some very old cages but a beautiful …
We have had a very busy couple of days! :-) Our last night in Hong Kong was lovely... we went for a swim on the hotel roof and took some cool photos of the Hong Kong buildings. Got up around 5am yesterday and caught the train to the airport... so efficient, we got to check our bags in at the train station! Flight to Helsinki was long and uneventful …

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.
We stayed at the Radisson SAS Plaza on April 26-28, 2005 and couldn't
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.
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!
This hotel was booked via website and the promising price was not met by the hotel administration, so watch out!
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!
