    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.

    ... the morning the whole island is sprayed for flies and mosquitoes every day. The grand buildings of the British past sit alongside modern buildings of every shape - indeed there seems to be competition to build the most bizarre, cutting edge, building possible. I thought the 12 hour flight to Helsinki was never going to end. Two hours was the most unbroken sleep I got. After checking in to the hotel - small room but good - I wandered back ...

    ... 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 ...

We're armed with our guide book, our phones with St Petersburg apps loaded, the Navigator and of course, we can always ask when we get there. Practiced reading some Russian while we had dinner, but somehow don't think we'll have learned enough before the morning.

We bumped into Lloyd and Janine there and made arrangements to go up to Skywalkers Lounge for a cocktail before dinner. Someone had told us that the views up there were great and we should go up, but what they didn’t mention was that they were either Platinum or Elite status and the lounge is only open ...
