“Nice Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

My room faces the woods. I had a perfect privacy and enjoyed nice view. There was no negative thing that I can remark. At the same time, there was no big positive. Bath tub is not equipped with standard rooms, so if we need it, we need to upgrade. For me, bath tub is a must..

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comments here on TripAdvisor!

We are happy to hear that there was no major negative remark of your stay but I am of course sorry to hear that the room you stayed in did not have a bath tub as you would have wished. Some of our standard guest rooms do have bath tubs as well as a shower and our staff in the reception are happy to arrange a room like this as long as there is one available.

Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will come back for another visit soon!

Yours sincerely,

Daniela Öhman

Great to have a view over the inlet/lake from my room. The hotel is set in spacious grounds and would be well worth exploring (if only time allowed). Not to difficult to get into downtown Helsinki and convenient for Espoo for meetings with client

We visited Helsinki in may and we were very lucky with the wether, sun was shining an just some rain showers nowandthen.We stayed at Hilton Helsinki Kalasjatorppa, it is a five star hotel
about 4 km from the downtown.
The hotel is situated at the sea and the whole property is very nice with garden and nice flowers .
You can rent a private sauna for example in the evening before the dinner. Enjoy the heath in the sauna and sit outside and enjoy some cold drinks and look at the sea that is just in front of you.
The restaurants in the hotel are really nice and the food was good also the breakfast was good.

You can take the tram for example to the downtown, it takes some 10-15 minutes.
The national opera and the Finlandia hall and the new Music Hall is situated on the way to city.

Almost every evening there are conserts in these,classic or modern, what you want.
If you like icehockey so the hall is just 3 km from the hotel. I really recommend.

Other than struggling to pronounce the name of the hotel location to the taxi driver, the stay here was seamless. The sea view rooms are spacious, clean, great bed and an amazing view. The service was exquisite, but for me the highlight was their restaurant food. The pasta was fresh with plenty of vegetables and the fish of the day was very well prepared.
All in all, great stay and would love to come here again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your great review!

It was very rewarding to hear that you had a great stay with us and that the service was "exquisite". The name, Kalastajatorppa, translates to Fisherman's cottage, which is is what was located in this area in the beginning of the 20th century. So true to it's name we are glad you enjoyed the fish, as well as the pasta, in our restaurant and I will make sure our chefs receive your great feedback.

Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again!

Kind regards,

Daniela Öhman

Beautiful location on the water for the summer. Stayed for two night on a business trip. The property looks to have been built around the 60's and retains that character. It's aged very well. Rooms are comfortable, staff is efficient and friendly. It's close to very nice residential neighborhood, about a 15 minute taxi ride to town. Beautiful area for my morning run. Would definitely stay again. Tough decision between this setting and some of the more elegant properties downtown.

Room Tip: My room in the building addition I suspect was newer and was closer to the water. Recommended.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your great review about your stay with us!

I was pleased to hear that you enjoyed the surroundings, the rooms and the character of the hotel. The area around the hotel is indeed ideal for jogging, glad you were able to have this experience. The hotel is built in stages with the Seaside Wing being built in the late 60's and the main building in the mid-70s, both buildings have since then been refurbished to a more modern look.

Thank you for staying with us and we do hope you will consider us for your next stay as well!

Best regards,

Daniela Öhman

Got a large room with a great view. Receptionists were nice. Breakfast OK. Executive lounge had pretty good food and drinks, but hours are limited. Hotel is situated 10-15 minutes walking from down town - ok for most, but there are hotels closer to the hot spots.

It is some way out of town but that's not a problem as the tram stop to the city centre is close to the hotel and fares are very reasonable. It is about a 20 minute journey and passes many of the sights of Helsinki.
The suite we had facing the seaside was fabulous and very spacious, but like most things in Helsinki it doesn't come cheap.
There is so much to see and do and the open air museum which gives a real insight into Finnish history is only a short walk away.
Other interesting sights were the Olympic stadium and the Fineteresting. Art Gallery, Ateneum.
A boat cruise around the harbour was also very informative.
All our food was delicious but very expensive by English standards.
The Hotel restaurant was OK but avoid the room service option.
Breakfast was exceptionally good.
We tried a few restaurants in the city including La Famiglia which was great value and Savotta which was fun with Bear salami and Reindeer meat.
We also went to 2 concerts in superb surroundings.
Generally a great 5 day break and we were surprised how few English people appeared to be around, as it has many attractions appealing to English tastes.
The hotel is absolutely great and the staff were very keen to please.
I definitely suggest you give it a try.
