“Very good location”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

good location for touring Helsinki - adjacent to the main train station;
Tram lines all around.
Helpful concierge & staff.
breakfast buffet has a very good assortment of choices, plus has a custom omelette bar.
Many restaurants located nearby.
Within walking distance of many tourist sites, including the design district.

Room Tip: select a higher floor room

Dear LJC309,

So kind of you to share such a lovely feedback of Plaza Hotel. Thank you kindly!

Plaza is in the middle of Helsinki, so as you mentioned it´t very easy to reach all sights, and take public transportation if needed.

Your feedback of our services is highly appreciated. We just started concierge service to give best available service to all our guests.

Hope to see you soon again!
Warm Regards,
Mr. Petri Uronen
Hotel Manager

A very central hotel located downtown Helsinki with all the typical Radisson things. Internet is fast and free. Breakfast buffet is good. Outdoor bar is classy but service is fair. A clean but aging property.
Complimentary sauna in the basement.

We do offer the free WiFi, saunas, gym and lot of other things such as bicycles and foot massage machines as an complimentary to our guests.

Very modern and spacious rooms.
Reception and staff very polite and helpful. I got 4 pages printed totally free of charge! The rates are very good including wifi, which does not work at all. I notified the reception that their wifi does not work this morning and it still doesn't. I took the room rate not including the breakfast, but will try their breakfast for 25€ tomorrow morning. I rate them very good! The wifi connection probably is a temporarily technical glitch.

A modern, beautifully kept hotel in a very convenient location five minutes to the railway station,trams,buses and City Tour buses. Very welcoming and efficient staff who will help with any queries about Helsinki. Ask for Arjam in the bar area for advice where to go as he has a wealth of useful tips one of which was the Museum of Contemporary Art. A spectacular building with clever modern exhibits not to be missed.
Very comfortable, quiet rooms with plenty of space incorporating large bed, sofa, writing area and marble bathroom. The breakfast choices are vast catering for every diet and taste located in a comfy traditional area. We could not have had a better stay.

Room Tip: We had a side room which was very quiet.

Family of 6 traveling with 4 kids under 9. We always get 2 rooms and usually get standard. This time I booked one standard and one business suit. Totally worth it! I believe the Plaza is the only Radisson blu (in Helsinki) with saunas IN the business rooms.

Location was great. Walked everywhere but the port to take the ferry back to Estonia.

Breakfast was great. Omelets were delicious. European breakfast. With juice, coffee, milk and yogurt. Everything was good.

Standard room- fine. Same size bed as business room. (Beds were amazingly comfy!) Had a wide couch that we made a bed for one kid. Shower/tub in the bathroom.

Business room- more then 2x the size of the standard. Had a shower and sauna. And "mood lighting". With this room we had access to the lounge. Games and cool chairs to sit and play games in. Hot drinks and fruit and candy are out during the day. You can also have breakfast there if you choose. But it's all the same stuff as down stairs.

Both rooms had a nespresso(sp?) coffee maker. And the best beds ever, if I didn't already say that.

I only gave 4 dots because:
~for the price - I think a crib should be complimentary. Not 20€ a night.

~The walls were a bit thin. I could hear my kids WALKING down the hall. But we must have been the only people because they are the only ones I heard.

~I really don't like the shampoo and conditioners, etc. I keep trying it hoping I will like it, but it just leaves my hair flat and blah.

We didn't check out the gym or sauna because HELLO?! We had a sauna in our Business room! So I can't rate that.

Totally would stay here again if we ever go back!

Rooms in the hotel seem to be rather recently renovated and they have done a great job. Breakfast is ok and offered in a nice old open space that I believe used to be an old bank.

From the airport you can take city bus 615 that stops at the railway station (final stop). Once you come out of the bus you should be able to see the hotel about 100m away from the station.

Location is ok, just a short walk to all restaurants and Helsinki sights.

Hi mikaramram!

Thank you so much for your kind review. We renovated all our rooms, restaurants, bars and public areas at 2012. The breakfast restaurant is located on our historical part of the hotel. That part was started to built day before the Finnish independence day 5th of December 1917, and it served 70 years as an SOK (Suomen Osuuskauppojen Keskuskunta) Headquarters. That breakfast hall was as an exhibition hall were all the stuff was displayed, those lamps on the ceiling are telling this story.

We truly wish you have a chance to come back one day - ask our historical tour them and you will get known all the history about our lovely hotel.

Have a great summer time and take care!

I wanted one night in a good hotel to recupirate after 3 nights of camping and the Radison Blu Plaza did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the beds comfortable and the room was clean and cozy, and though the bathroom was on the smaller side, it had a great shower. The location couldn't be better.
