... off at a busy shopping area near the train station. We looked for the Angry Birds museum but couldn't find it. The creators of Angry Birds come from Finland. We noticed lots of Angry Birds merchandise. We then went to the main market square which consisted of lots of stalls selling food and souvenirs. We had lunch and Kieran had reindeer meatballs. It came with vegetables, potatoes and only 2 meatballs! There was an interesting Russian-inspired Cathedral in which there ...
... Singapore. We ended up in the middle & to the rear of the plane. This is where the seats Chang from four to three & the seat was very uncomfortable for Rell. I ended up swapping seats so she could get dome sleep. Everything was uneventful. Watch plenty of moved & got little sleep. Short stop over in Singapore then back to ...

After leaving my bag at Heddi and Pentti's place, Pentti dropped Heddi and I off into downtown Helsinki to meet up with another friend Johanna, who I had also first met back in 1996. Heddi had chosen a traditional Finnish restaurant which served an assortment of diverse dishes such as fillet of house, perch terrine and spruce sprout sorbet. I settled on the herring salad and potato crepe.

When we got back to the center of town we just decided to head early to the port, since at that point we felt like we basically checked off Helsinki. Another ~6 miles in the city and we'd seen just about all the attractions listed in TripAdvisor! And our ferry was named, appropriately, Finlandia. ...

So when the bus driver started calling out street stop names at about 12:30pm I didn't really bat an eyelid. It was only when I was one of two people left on the bus and the driver came back to ask us if we were both heading for Raislo that I knew I'd screwed it up. The other guy did some translating for me and it turns out that ...

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.
