    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.

    ... upstairs on the 2nd floor with long, wooden tables. The feeling was very medieval and three musicians serenaded us with background music. They kept switching instruments—they each must have played 4 or 5 different ones. There were drums, bagpipes, fiddle, organ grinder, lyre, mandolin, and some sort of flute. Dishes of Turnips infused with ginger, minced elk & wild boar, and lentils were passed around. It was so delicious and wholesome. Everyone was so ...

    Today was a short call in Helsinki. We took a hop on hop off tour of the city and visited the Temppeliaukio Church, built into the rocks and covered with a spun copper done. We also visited the Sibelius park, a monument to the composer if many Finish sings including the national anthem, Finlandia. We rode the bus back to the ship for lunch and stayed aboard a we departed at 3 for Stockholm, Sweden, our last port of call. Tonight will be the 2nd formal night and the returning guest ...

    ... hostel with no issues, although I did get some strange stares for wearing short denim shorts and a top with a scarf. So far though, I am loving Helsinki. It's 2AM but bright as can be. It's amazing. Transport works at 2AM. Wow. In fact, there were so many people on the bus it just felt so safe.

    Day one of adventures at Helsinki shall commence tomorrow. I can barely wait.

    ... Next stop was Senate Square with the Helsinki Cathedral and a monument dedicated to Russian Alexander II who was known in Finland as the "good tsar". We wandered down to the open air Market Square. There were lots of fruit and veges, plus lots of sterling silver jewellery and furs (I resisted both), and other crafts and souvenirs.

    Dinner was three appetisers - ...

    ... era town hall with lots of steps up and down. The boat was waiting and at 10am we departed to Helsinki. It only took 1 and a half hours and it was fairly calm all the way. When we arrived there was a market of souvenirs and food that we looked through. We then found the City Museum which was small but interesting in a beautiful building. A quick visit to the information centre gave us some better orientation of the city and location ...
