“Hotel Kamp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

A very well maintained and beautiful hotel. Perfect location, facing the downtown park and near attractions and shopping. A very helpful, friendly staff. Linens fresh and pressed, ample fluffy towels. The restaurant had local specialties which were unusual for us, service a bit slow on the Saturday night we were there, better the next night. I would definitely look forward to staying there again

Sometimes you want to give quality time to yourself and to your loved one, or friends or person important to you. Kämp is place to stay. In case you are international traveller, you can compare this to quality of service in Chedi hotels. No mistakes and extremely nice stuff. Excellent room, beds and amenities. Price wise also worth when you look their deals and remembering Finland IS expensive. Consider to pay little extra compared to other Helsinki down town hotels and you get royal treatment instead staying in motel style self service hotel.

This is a fine hotel. We were scheduled for just one night, but extended it to two because we enjoyed the hotel and its location. Expensive, yes, but a very pleasant stay. Our room was spacious and bath, shower facility accommodating. The restaurant served quality food at both dinner and breakfast. Again, very expensive eating. The front desk staff were friendly and very helpful. Like other European hotels, we didn't experience bell help with luggage until we were in the front door. By then it is a bit late to be offering help. We would highly recommend this hotel to any who wouldn't mind the more expensive venue.

We were recommended to use the hotel by friends who have a home in Finland. Our friends were meant to have joined us but had to pull out at the last minute The hotel upgraded us and included breakfast in our prices to compensate us for having bought through lastminute.com The front desk were friendly. The bar was friendly and the restaurant served us nice food with warm friendly service I will be happy to use this hotel again. Not cheap but convenient city centre location

Classy hotel in the best location of Helsinki. Service is very nice.
However stayed in this hotel several times ( also in other hotels ) and housekeeping was very poor.
We were not sure if room were cleaned at all. We gave feedback twice during our stay and hotel did offer complimentary wine but we would have prefer had clean room. Dirty towels were not removed from the room and they were laying around the chairs, as well nothing was organized ( hotel staff told us they can't touch any personal items of the guests ). Anyway, good stay but very poor house keeping. Also internet is with charge which I find unreasonable with this level hotel.

We stayed here 4 nights as a base inHelsinki. Excellent location which allowed us to pop in and cool off during a terrible heat wave. Staff were very helpful in suggestions for restaurants and attractions. Our room was very comfortable and we had a great stay. Highly recommend.

Located on the Esplanade in Helsinki you cannot be in a more central location you're literally moments from all the highlights of the city. This is truely a five star hotel and the attention to detail from the embroidered logo on the sheets through to marble bathrooms is exquisite.
We had a suite which meant we overlooked the Esplanade itself.
The suite was huge and the bathroom was finished beautifully in marble with both a bath and a shower. We had some problems with the shower flooding the bathroom on a few occasions but suspect this was a small fault with the seals.
The service levels were a little disappointing as the staff seemed somewhat aloof. When we arrived in a taxi no one met us until we were in the lobby despite clearly need assistance with our luggage.
As many of the other reviews mentioned the lack of free wifi is a little disappointing in a five start hotel when in fact there is free wifi in many parts of the city.
The hotel is expensive but not out of line with other hotels in Helsinki and if you book in advance there seemed to be significant savings.
