“Reasonably priced city centre hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We stayed a week in Helsinki in this hotel. It was ideally located for walking to all the city centre sights - market hall, harbour food stalls, design district, ferry to Suomenlinna, Mannerheim Museum, cathedral, parliament - and numerous restaurants and coffee houses. In addition the 3T and 3B tram lines which travel through the city in the form of a figure 8 and pass many of the city's highlights stop right in front of the hotel. In addition the hotel has bicycles for free hire.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and interestingly decorated and the breakfast offered a wide variety of dishes.

Good location - walking distance to the city centre and local attractions.
We stayed for two days and have to say that room (512) was small but nice from design point of view. The best idea is do not bring with you a big suitcase because it is really not enough space for that.
Staff was hospitable and helpful. Check-in and check-out we're very fast and easy.
Breakfast is typical Scandinavian.
You can get the 20% discount for the parking just ask from the reception.
There are a nice bar and not very crowded night club in the hotel. Very lovely places :-)
Hotel looks overpriced - we have paid almost 200 EUR per night but reasonable price could be 120-140 EUR for the room like we had.

A very good hotel in the centre of Helsinki. Clean, spacious room with wooden floors, special design, cozy, good comfortable beds. Rooms a bit on the chilly side if it's cold outside. But the staff was pleased to help out with an electrical heater. The internet connection via wi-fi is crappy, though - very slow and unreliable. Only a few TV stations, sometimes with digital distortions. Additional films cost. Very helpful staff.

Dear carambellas, thank you for writing your review. I appreciate you taking the time. I am conducting a large-scale renovation of the lobby and restaurant and bar area in January 2013; I am installing all new led tv's this month (October) in all rooms, wi-fi will also be pumped up in this process. In addition to these physical things, I am also creating a new website which will be launched at the end of the year. I hope you will be interested in returning on your next trip to Helsinki. All the best, Marc Skvorc, General Manager

I stayed here for three nights in May and had a great experience. My room was spacious, comfortable and well laid-out, and was pretty quiet except for some construction on the street outside. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations and anything else i needed.

The location is great, within walking distance to several different districts, plenty of good restaurants, shopping, and just off a main boulevard. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed tw nights on a business trip. The hotel staff are not particularly friendly, yet also not rude. The bedrooms are very small and dark. Due to there not being a desk, it was difficult to work in the room. Breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of fresh foods. Hotel is very central so the location is also vrey good. Overall it was good but I will try another hotel on my next trip to Helsinki

Dear TravelBugEnnis, thank you for taking the time to write your review. I wanted to inform you and others that we have taken your comments very seriously. We have conducted a thorough rooms maintenance program this year, installing new led tv's in all rooms, changing to led lighting throughout the building in the beginning of 2013, renovating the entire lobby and bar space as well as breakfast area. I hope you will give us another try when you return to Helsinki. All the best, Marc Skvorc, General Manager

Have stayed here many times (not by choice). The rooms are absolutely TINY! You can literally brush you teeth (at the sink) while sitting in your bed kind of room...the service is inconsistent. I have had some good experiences, but also some very bad ones.
Being fair, its location is actually very good. The beds are comfortable, just very small. It is clean. The gym terrible.


Overall, its not one of the better hotels in Helsinki for the price. For what you spend here, you could stay at Hotel Glo or Crown Plaza, which are both much nicer.

Room Tip: Just stay elsewhere, but if you have to stay here DO NOT stay in one of the efficiency rooms or you...

Dear Scott M, I am so sorry that we don't meet or even exceed your expectations. I have received many compliments on the areas you pointed out. Some of our smallest rooms have proved to be the perfect fit for many of our guests. I wish you all the best on your return trips and hope we can welcome you back to Klaus K and perhaps you could try a different room type. Sincerely, Marc Skvorc, General Manager

Klaus K boasts a lot of design and indeed, it is a a-typical hotel, right in the shopping centre of the city and in the heart of the 2012 design district. As nice as that may be, the 1 person room is unacceptably tiny. When you are there for business there is no room for suitcase and no desk to work on. The room 'offers' a very narrow bed. Some rooms have a 'view' on a solid wall.
All in all it was a dissapointing experience, especially when you take the price into account.
Breakfast is nice though with lots of organic products. Value for money is not allright, it is too expensive for what it offers, design or not.

Room Tip: If you are travelling alone, don't book a single room. Spend even more money and take a double r...

Dear orangeAmsterdam, I am sorry we didn't meet your expectations with the room view and desk working space. It is true we have larger rooms and if guests would like a writing surface we can find a good solution that has worked in the past. I believe we can improve more in communicating all the things we can provide our guests and this is the challenge I have taken with my team. I hope I can welcome you back someday when your return to Helsinki. All the best, Marc Skvorc, General Manager
