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.

... you know it, we have finished and we head to our room around 7.30. Everyone is tired.

On the bus at 8am. We have a lot of driving again today and the next few days as we get into more remote places.
Food here is a bit different. Lots of fish, particularly salmon (still don't like it). Pickled veggies, cheeses and meats for breakfast. They do offer scrambled eggs (yuck) that always looks the same. Bit ...
I was trying to kill time till 4pm so my entry code would work in my hotel and I could get in my room. I was still walking around with my bag.
This morning we decided to walk down to the Viking line terminal so we knew exactly where we had to go tomorrow morning and how long it would take us to walk it. Then we went to church. First we went to see the Orthodox Church, Uspenskin cathedral. It was quite spectacular from the outside and is the largest Orthodox church in Western Europe. Very ornate inside. Then we went to ...
... a UNESCO World Heritage site which is only about 15 minutes from the Market Square. Helsinki is a city on the sea and today really made me realize how many islands and waterways are part of the city and its history.
We were hoping to see the Museum of Design today and set off this morning only to first find ourselves in The Art Gallery in error! Then we followed the directions from the lovely lady at the Art Gallery caught a ...
