The hotel was clean, comfortable, convenient and the staff was friendly and helpful. We had a fabulous breakfast each morning, excellent lunch in the restaurant and drinks in the very cozy library bar.We would definitely return to this hotel if we found ourselves back in Helsinki (one can only wish).

Dear Chilibeans70,

Thank you so much for your positive review. Specially we love the title of your writing "Do not skip breakfast". I personally also think that the breakfast is the most important meal of the day - and from our Super Breakfast you can find almoust everything what you need.

It´s lovely to hear you liked our rooms, bars and other facilities. Som hope to meet you soon again here at Plaza!

Have a great winter time!

Kind regards,

We arrived at Helsinki Airport and caught the bus 615 (public bus which cost 4.50 EURO (They don't except credit card), it stops at many stops. If you want a shorter and more comfortable journey (room to store your luggage plus comfy chairs) to the city, you should use the airport bus, Finair which is more expensive (except credit card). We got off at the stop at Helsinki central station which was only 5-6 min walk from the Hotel

We were checked in by their friendly and helpful staff which made us feel at home.
Our room was lovely and comfortable too and we had a great night sleep which made us so looking forward to breakfast!

After breakfast which was delicious we were checked out by lovely and helpful staff at reception who fetched me a box of hand tools to fix my sunglasses for me. I was so grateful and made me even more looking forward to our trip to Rovaniemi in Lapland!

We took the NO.615 public bus outside the Helsinki Central Railway station to the Helsinki Airport. The bus was packed with commuters got on to the bus at each stop and no room for luggage so it was not comfortable. Wish we took the Finair bus!

Dear Lipsytravel,

Thank you so much for your kind review! It is always a great joy to read reviews like the one you wrote.

I hope you had time to do some shopping and sightseeing while in Helsinki. For all that the hotel really is conveniently situated because almost all the main sited are within walking distance. And to everywhere else it is easy to catch a train or bus.

I really liked your comments concerning about our staff and services, It is our passion to serve our guests as friendly as we can - our motto is: We love what we do - with the Yes I Can! -attitude.

Our whole Team Plaza wishes you a lucky year 2014!

With kind regards,

Mr. Heikki Päätalo

A modern clean hotel with all the usual facilities including sauna. The hotel is situated a few minutes walk from the city centre and bus and train stations. The staff were friendly and helpful, suggesting good places to eat etc. Breakfast was a little disorganised but after three days we had found where everything was! Nice bar and restaurant.
An enjoyable stay.

I had shows to do in Espoo and Sipoo. Helsinki was out of the way, but this place made it worth it! Very clean, spacious for Europe, and a very nice, attentive staff. Like with most hotels in Finland, their English is perfect. It's in a great location, so close to the epicenter of the city. I wish I stayed in hotels like this more often!

Located in an antique building from the beginning of the 20 century, recently renewed, combines perfectly design with vintage. It offers excellent services, the staff is very gentle, and the Breakfast is delicious.

We stayed here one night before heading to Tallinn for a few nights. We came back to Helsinki and stayed in Hotel Kamp. We really wished we had come back to this Radisson if only for the breakfast bar - it's amazing. Here's what I liked: 1) great location for walking around Helsinki, 2) top notch breakfast bar, 3) very nice staff, 4) the price was pretty good. Here's what I didn't like: 1) the room was a bit snug but acceptable.

This was my second visit to Helsinki and thoroughly enjoyed staying at this hotel. Location is fantastic for seeing the sites and exploring best parts of city center - also literally across from central train station.
The room was very comfortable - a bit small, but not an issue. Excellent bed, good bathroom, in-rrom coffee/tea, mini-bar and free wifi which worked well. Hotel has a small, but decent-equipped gym, nice saunas and the common areas were nice enough. Service was very good - front desk well-staffed and everyone was helpful and knowledgeable.
Having stayed previously at the Hilton Strand and also doing quite a bit of research on other city center options in my view this is definitely one of THE best options for Helsinki - business or pleasure if you want/need to be downtown.

Room Tip: we were on top floor (7th floor) and it was nice....recommend higher level room although it's no...
