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 …
... waned when the singing began... I guess cabaret would be the appropriate term. It was a woman singing songs in what I think was Russian. They weren't happy sounding songs, but then Russia isn't known for exporting joy by the shipload. She could sing very well, don't get me wrong, but it wasn't my sort of scene. I turned around to see a lone elderly couple dancing and while I salute their efforts, it made for an embarrassing spectacle in a large room filled to the brim ...
... for the most part. The Helsinki Cathedral focused more on the latter rather than the former.
Hoki noticed on a poster that there was going to be a short (half-hour) organ recital that was going to be held in a little over an hour. We decided that we needed to attend as organ music in a big stone European church/cathedral is a true wonder for the ears. During the recital, the cathedral would be closed to sightseeing, so we quickly made plans to go set down ...
... One thing we found hilarious that I feel I should share, was the fact that the seagals here aren't the normal quacking hot chip chasers that we are use to in Circular Quay, these birds are addicted to ice cream and 3 times the size. We watched innocent victims admire their purchase only to be left seconds later holding only an empty cone trying to piece together what had ...

So instead of napping, we walked around much of central Helsinki, toured one beautiful Russian Orthodox church, did some people watching and found a yummy falafel dinner. Now we are really and truly ready to crash. More to ...

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.
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.
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.
