Klaus K is located at the top of Helsinki's Esplanade and the crossroads of the city center main streets Mannerheimintie and Erottaja, near the shopping area, the cruise ship harbour and the train station, and less than 20km away from the international airport.
Stayed here a few times over the past year and I've never had a bad experience at Klaus K. The rooms are a bit on the small side. The breakfast is hands down the best I've had in any hotel (in this price range) in Helsinki. Looking for a safe bet and value for money' This is it.
"Our favorite in Helsinki"
We arrived to Helsinki for one day. There was no need to stop at the hotel. The train came early and we decided to have breakfast in our favorite hotel. Despite the fact that we were not guests of the hotel, they greeted us cordially, breakfast was as always wonderful.
"Nice boutique hotel"
I stayed here for 4 nights while in Helsinki. The location is very close to restaurants and shopping + tourist spots like Senate Square. The room I had was a queen bed. Room size was good for European sized rooms. The breakfast is nice, full with eggs breads fruits etc. The gym equipment was older but still offered a nice variety of weights, machines, & cardio. I'd stay here again.
The SKY SUITES were spacious and a terrific price for the accommodations. The private elevator was a nice touch. The only drawback was that the space between a wall unit and the opposite wall was narrow making entry with luggage into the main part of the room difficult. The breakfast buffet with hot eggs and cereal was spectacular (buy it on the room rate). English speaking staff. Public transportation is just outside the front door. Hotel is located near a lot of the principal sightseeing venues.
"I wanted to love this hotel but sometimes being a design boutique hotel does not always make sense"
Our room was fabulous because we got upgraded to a Sky Suites Loft Room. The room was large in size and the high ceilings made it very spacious. We were scheduled to stay here 8 nights. My friend had made 2 separate reservations as he was leaving after the first 4 nights and the rates varied for the number of people in the room. We were informed that I would have to change rooms after the first 4 nights (and I get it we were upgraded but the hassle of changing rooms was not something I was interested in doing). With a design hotel, you do sometimes get things that do not make any sense. The bed was on an elevated area up a series of steps. Not sure why but OK. The desk did not have a proper chair so difficult if you are doing business work (again I think a design thing). Ultimately after the first four nights I left and transferred to a different hotel. The main reason was I was going to have to change rooms anyways and I really did not enjoy their breakfast. If you enjoy hotel breakfasts then I would say the breakfast here is beautifully curated but is misleading as two sides are identical and the only hot items are scrambled eggs, sausage, and barley oatmeal. That's it. Coffee is brew coffee but espresso, cappucino, etc.....that's extra. Want a fried egg instead of scrambled....that's extra.... You also have to enter the lobby with a set of stairs to go up (there is an elevator nearby but when you first arrive it is not visibly obvious.) There are wonderful restaurants on the same block as the hotel, we ate at 3 of them. Toscanini, Boulevard Social and Gaijin. All were excellent. Tram is right across the street and it is walking distance from the train station if you don't mind a 10 minute walk.
