I have wanted to visit Helsinki ever since the night that I watched Lordi romp home as winners of the Eurovision song contest. Scandinavia embraces heavy metal and that's something that I can relate to! Not that I knew I would be visiting Helsinki. My OH booked the trip as a birthday present and just told me to keep the dates free and pack for …
... first couch surfing experiences so that was exciting. She seemed like a lovely, friendly and easy to talk to person (with perfect english of course) and we went back to her apartment which she shared with two also very lovely finnish girls. Here we stayed and chatted for a while, listening to her flatmates practice violin and also listening to their bands music (Suvi, her flatmates and other friends have a band with some ...
... and not going to lie, kind of creepy. Like Nadia and I were walking down the street with only one or two people within eye shot of us on the same street... its just so empty and small here! Plus everyone is the same clone of blonde hair. Super Stepford here. haha The city is very cute though, and we managed to find dinner at an AMAZING italian joint. Nadia and I nearly died we are so full - so delicious. We also happened to stumble upon a random festival near the train ...
... we would go into it on our way back to the hotel but we were too tired later and didn't want to stop and my daughter doesn't much like cathedrals yet. Not at an age yet to appreciate the beauty without the religion. I didn't like them at her age either.
We've decided to go to the sea fortress by ferry first but when we get to the market square, there are tons of booths with some good looking veggies ...
We're actually in Stockholm, checked into our very nice hotel overlooking the harbor or whatever it is. We’re in Old Town (totally shocking, I know) which is on an island. We arrived this morning from Finland on an overnight ferry.
We had a good time in Finland. On the afternoon we arrived we parked ourselves at a corner cafe and watched the action. It was freezing outside, far colder than we had anticipated, but fortunately we were under a heater ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Helsinki
One of the Best
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
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.
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 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.
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.
I highly recommend this beautiful hotel. Modern and cozy at the same time. And the price was not bad.
Would stay there again..
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
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.
