“Walking distance to city centre, very good location.”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

Room is excellent. Big, well lit and clean. Bathroom well equipped, clean and modern. Big flat screen tv in the rooms. Breakfast is very good. Lots of food. Wide range. We enjoyed walking to the Christmas market and city centre where all the shops are. Stockmann is a good place to shop for anything you want, with a supermarket at the basement. Sokos is another good place to shop, both within walking distance from Radisson Blu.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We arrived at the hotel very late but were warmly welcomed by the helpful staff who quickly checked us into our rooms. As requested in advance we had 2 rooms - one with a king sized bed and the other arranged for the junior members of our party with 2 singles and a fold out bed. Both rooms were clean, spacious and well equipped. A highlight for some of us was the sauna, and for others the excellent breakfast which had sufficient variety and quality to please even the pickiest of pallets.

I have been here several times now, could say as a regular. First visits were "ok", but when I had to give some feed back, I have got ever since a "royal service".

now years later hotel staff have became familiar and I feel every time expected customer and feel my self welcomed customer.

the lobby bar and restaurat "Grill It" has a great value of money and the beds offers good sleeping experience.

Highly recommended!

I've stayed in many Radisson hotels - it's my personal preference when working away as you can normally rely on the brands high standards - This hotel however is an exception.

The bedroom had numerous different hairs all over, the walls had greasy fingerprints on and the bathroom stunk of sewage due to the drains in the floor. After accidentally spilling a drink on the bed and stripping to prevent liquid seeping through it I was horrified at the state mattress - more brown stains than you could imagine!

On the positive side the breakfast is good, the bar has a very nice atmosphere, the location is very good and the receptionists are friendly, efficient and accommodating (with the exception of a young male receptionist).

I'm sure the hotel could quite easily resolve most of these issues - however at the moment if you're staying here for the trusted brand I wouldn't bother!

This was my first Radisson Blu experience, and it won't be my last. I leave supremely satisfied with my stay, the breakfast, and the amenities. When I got stuck in Helsinki for an extra night, it wasn't event a question for me...it was back to the Blu Royal!

The staff is friendly and helpful, the bathrooms are great, and the bed (and bedding options) should make everyone happy. Some of the aesthetics could be updated (both safes I had were quite clunky, the doors are somewhat warehouse-y), but this don't detract from the stay in any way.

I'll be staying here again.

I stayed in the Radisson Blu Royal in Helsinki for one night in December.
The hotel is quite friendly and service good.
The room itself was clean and comfortable, although unfortunately we were given one of the inward-facing rooms, so just one window facing into the inner atrium. The downside of this is that what little daylight might get into the room, it is further limited by the fact that you need to keep the curtains closed to get any privacy as the glass elevators and windows of the corridors have a direct view into the room.
Free WiFi exists throughout the hotel.
Hotel has a sauna, but with limited opening times it was not possible to use it at a time convenient for us. A second private sauna also exists, but is prohitively expensive unless you are in a large group.
The bed was very comfortable, although I never understand why some hotels insist on having two single duvets in a room with a queen size bed.
The hotel allowed us a late checkout which was much appreciated, just one example of the overall friendly and helpful approach of the staff.
Breakfast was good quality compared with the usual standard of buffet breakfasts in large hotels, good freshly brewed coffee and some nice Finnish salmon among other things.
Overall a pleasant stay in a good central location in Helsinki.

Room Tip: Avoid an inward-facing room.
