Klaus K Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We were happy with Klaus K and thought we got a good rate. I emailed ahead and they gave us the room requested, away from elevator, high floor etc. I was less impressed with the room they use off the lobby for breakfast I much preferred the weekend set up where we had breakfast in their restaurant. The same food but a more atmospheric environment.
Very lovely, clean hotel. Room was small but cozy and the breakfast was wonderful. Would highly recommend!
Bed was comfortable, on the softer side. Bathroom clean as a whistle. Room was quiet. Breakfast was excellent, with a variety of smoked fish, meats, cheeses (including blue), various other goodies. One of the better breakfasts I have found in Europe. Service was very good. Mainly lacking a sauna, which many hotels have in Helsinki.
Klaus K is a cool, contemporary hotel with very helpful staff and were friendly upon arrival. The lobby was very clean as well as the breakfast area. Our room was very clean and if you like unique and contemporary rooms, you will love Klaus K. The bed was very comfortable and the bathtub/shower was quite large. We were only in Helsinki for 2 days so we mainly did sight-seeing and walked as much of the city as possible. We highly suggest taking time to visit the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress. The night before our departure we wanted to print our boarding passes, but we having some difficulty and the front desk staff was extremely helpful. A major bonus is that the hotel does have a computer with a printer that you can print your boarding pass if necessary. Also, we had an opportunity to eat at the hotel restaurant and it was delicious.
We needed an overnighter between plane connections and figured downtown trumped staying near the airport. It might have except due to it's being Sunday and a national holiday and summer vacation for apparently everybody, the downtown was essentially closed for the duration - no restaurants outside the hotels, or shops, or anything open, and the streets were nearly deserted. What we saw of Helsinki was pretty, exceptionally clean...and exceptionally expensive, especially for what food there was. The hotel itself provided very friendly and helpful staff (although they couldn't figure out their own wi-fi system and we couldn't get online anywhere around Helsinki), but the silly design elements of the hotel were more artsy than comfortable - weird closet, screwy lighting scheme, no workspace or bedside stand. Hard place to relax.
