    Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Helsinki

    One of the Best

    from

    This is everything a hotel should be: clean, friendly and knowledgeable staff, fantastic breakfast, great accommodations. The location is a little far from the center of town (close to the bus station, though), but it's worth the walk. We got to Helsinki fairly early in the day and we waited just a few minutes while a room was prepared for us. I've stayed in more hotels than I could possibly count, including four-star hotels in major U.S. cities, and this one ranks at the top. Check out the wonderful Indian restaurant right across the street.

    4 of us stayed in March for long weekend as part of Birthday Celebration. (Many Happy returns Nancy)...Lovely high spec rooms with unbeleivably comfy beds...don't lie down you probably won't want to get up. Very curtious and helpful staff.

    Good quality buffet breakfast included in price €100 per night for the room considered a bargain.

    Just a short walk into city centre. Ideal location in a lovely City

    Highly recommended

    Fantastic time!

    from

    I really enjoyed my stay at the Radisson SAS Royal. The room was fantastic with a great bathtub. It was just what I needed after a long work day. I wish that they had internet access for free, but that was the only downside.

    I never met the maids, my room was always ready for me when I got in at night. They even took the care to fold my pjs and lay them on the bed. Very nice touch:)

    I can't say enough good things about the SAS. It is near the Forum (for shopping) and Stockman's Department Store. It is also pretty near to the train station without being right near it and the noise! The subway is right across the street (small) and the bus stop is right in front.

    The front desk is courteous and speaks English very well.

    Breakfast buffet was always terrrific and they changed up during the two weeks that I was there. Some days they had a lovely smoked salon waiting there and the ladies were always a pleasant way to start the morning.

    Fantastic!

    We recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on a leisure trip to Helsinki. The hotel is centrally located within a comfortable walking distance to the major sites/shopping in Helsinki.

    The room was tastefully appointed and very Scandinavian in character - light coloured wooden floor, modern furniture, clean lines etc. The beds seemed quite high compared to a domestic bed, but were very comfortable.

    As is typical in most good European hotels the breakfast buffet certainly did not disappoint.

    One feature I liked about this hotel was the requirement to use the room card to activate the lift. This is a good form of added security to prevent non-hotel guests from accessing floors with rooms.

    I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again on future visits to Helsinki.

    Excellent Hotel

    from

    Excellent Hotel in centre of Helsinki. Tastefully decorated, very good service & really good amenities. Stayed in a 'business class' room & was very pleased with all the extras (free use of gym, pay channels free, high speed internet access, chocolates etc).

    Only concern was the cost. It was very expensive in comparison with other Hotels I have stayed in in the Helsinki area.

    First class!!

    from

    Just returned from 2 nights at the Radisson SAS Royal, Helsinki and wanted to praise the excellent service offered by all the staff. The food was excellent-we enjoyed the variety of the breakfast (complimentary). We also sampled the main restaurant where the food was well priced, beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked!

    The room was very comfortable and quiet with a lovely bathroom. A free sauna is available twice a day, but the best part of this stay was the knowledgeable and helpful staff-nothing was too much trouble and we would definitely recommend this hotel. The location is also excellent-just 10mins walk into the main city area and opposite Kammpi metro station!!

    Great hotel at great price.

    from

    I highly recommend this beautiful hotel. Modern and cozy at the same time. And the price was not bad.

    Would stay there again..

    from

    I went to Helsinki to attend a conference this May and I stayed in a business room in this hotel for 4 days. I payed 140Euro per night with breakefast. The room was very comfortable, with huge well-equipped bathroom and a good bed. Also the breakefast was generous. The location : about 5-7 minutes of walk from the main shopping area. I had a room facing the back and it was absolutely quiet. I was very satisfied and would defenitely recommend it.

    Good Weekend Value

    from

    Excellent value if staying at the weekend. Special rates available on the Radisson SAS hotel web site. Weekend rates include a full buffet breakfast and a late check out. Hotel is well situated as major shops/trains/business all within walking distance. Very comfortable rooms with smashing bathrooms. No tea/coffee facilities in the rooms though. No swimming pool but small fitness centre and hotel sauna (very hot - just the way the Finns like it!)

    Mostly used by businesssmen during the week, this hotel offers at excellent location at a great price for weekend visits Fri/Sat/Sun.

We were entertained by a secondary school choir who dressed in a variety of National Dress. They sang so beautifully. They also had a ensemble, jazz band and two duets of singers. Music is such a valued art form here. They are very proud of the 150 years of Jean Sibelius (1865-1957) who was a ...

    Left BKK early this morning, and YAY, I was given a free upgrade to business class. Seats are so much more comfy, and the leg room..... Made the 10 hour trip so much more bearable. We had an easy transfer via bus & taxi to our hotel, and settled in. On Saturday we walked to Kauppatori market square, via a flea market just around the corner. This is the main quay area. We caught the hop-on hop-off bus which took us first of ...

    ... in the square. Then on to the dry dock observation deck. Soumenlinna's dry dock is one of the oldest operational dry docks in the world. In the 1760s, ships for the Swedish coastal fleet were built here, under the supervision of naval architect F.H. af Chapman. These days, the dry dock is used for renovating old wooden ships. We walked through Piper Park and saw some ducklings! Then up to look over the "beach" and Russian sand walls. Here the tour ended ...

Our 5 dogs were so fast, we had to keep braking to stop them running up our leaders bum, even up hills. I hope our photos do it justice, we has the best outfits to keep us warm and dry, which is lucky because as soon as Steph and I swapped to give her a drive, it snowed like crazy. So instead of ...
