"Quirky, great location delicious breakfast"
The Design Hotels are always a fun stay, and this stay didn't disappoint! The location is great, it is totally walkable (even in freezing rain circumstances) to things in the promenade and city center. The breakfast is delicious and the italian restaurant at street level is great too. We stayed in the separate sky loft side, and such a treat to have heated bathroom floors. Fun place.
We stayed here for our wedding weekend. The staff was very kind and helpful. We stayed in one the loft suites and they were well designed and spacious. Will definitely stay here again! And the breakfast was also very good!
"Art Suite Katja Tukiainen"
We have been at this hotel three times before, every time in the newly renovated sky rooms. This time we booked from a flash sale an envy room for 135 euros. From the hotel's website I noticed that the art suites belong to the envy category and there is a champagne package for 95 euros extra for the Art Suite Katja Tukiainen. The package includes a bottle of rosé champagne, specialty chocolate and sweets as well as a signed card from Katja Tukiainen. I emailed the hotel for the package and we got the Tukiainen Suite. The room was quite extraordinary because of the colourful artworks on the walls. They had been done by the Finnish visual artist and painter Katja Tukiainen in the summer 2012. The room was spacious except the bathroom, which was small. The room was on the lowest 2nd floor and had a window to the small inner courtyard. There was very little natural light. Luckily we had the Tivoli lights. There was some mix-up with the champagne package and regular Moet & Chandon was waiting for us without any extras. When checking out, it was charged for the normal bar price 85 euros. Next time we would prefer the sky rooms. They are more modern and stylish. Particularly the bathrooms are so much better.
"Once a school, now a design hotel in a top location in the heart of Helsinki"
Klaus K is different from most hotels due to its design and concept. When you enter the hotel, you first pass an enotheca, (worthwhile trying!) then the elevators and only then you find the reception desk up the stairs next to the breakfast area . Breakfast itself is very very good, try the delicious salmon....The medium sized rooms with low ceiling are design also and when entering you have to pull the door, don't push.. The bathroom is small but ok. No complementary bottles of water however. Enough electrical outlets at the bedside tables and good quality linnen but the bathroom towels were pretty used , stiff.
"Beautifully decorated design hotel in the center of Helsinki"
Recently spend a night at this fantastic design hotel, which from the outside might not look special, but when getting in will surprise you. Beautifully decorated, specially the rooms are amazing and breakfast was great. Will certainly return to this hotel, when heading back to Helsinki in the near future.
