Recommended hotels

There’s a number of other hotels in Espoo and Helsinki to suit your taste, but the one listed above has clearly the most convenient location.



We can pick you up from Helsinki airport, if you just send us your flight details.

From the airport to Hotel Radisson Blu Espoo and Otahalli by public transportation: Take the ”I” or ”P” train to Helsinki central railway station and change to Metro going towards Tapiola or Matinkylä. Get off at a station called ”Aalto University”. From there, it’s a 5-min walk to the hotel and Otahalli. Single ticket costs 4.60 eur (zones ABC) when purchased from a ticketing machine at the railway station. Note: There’s no ticket sales in most trains, so you should have a ticket before you board the train.

From the airport to downtown Helsinki: Local train lines ”P” and ”I”.

The most inexpensive way to move around is the HSL public transportation system.
