“Trendy and fresh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

One of the nicest hotels I've been to in Finland. Staff welcoming and friendly, hotel stylish and fresh and the breakfast very good. Stayed in a Envy King room, spacious and comfartable. Location also very central in Helsinki. Booked directly through the hotels own web site.

I enjoyed my stay at the Klaus K Hotel. My friend and I were traveling and had arranged a transfer from the airport to the hotel. We were greeted on time by a professional gentleman in a suit holding a sign with my name. It was a private large van for the 2 of us. The trip was about 35 minutes, and cost was about $30. They also provided a transfer back to the airport for the same and we were able to bill to our room and pay credit card, so we did not have to worry about having their currency upon arrival.

The hotel is in the center of town close to a number of parks, green areas with ice cream stands, coffee cafes, and restaurants.

In 10 minutes you can be to the water front with larges churches, a large ferris wheel, and get a view of the harbor and boats.

The hotel front desk staff was super friendly and were very organized for our check-in. It was a very simple process. The front desk young ladies helped us with anything – answering questions on restaurants, where to go, and what to see.

The hotel has a very nice Italian restaurant attached to the hotel. There were a number of Helsinki dining there and seemed very popular.

We used the hotels bikes and rode and explored town. They had two bikes for use.

The hotel is modern and the lobby has a very nice open setting with really amazing fun innovative interior design. Our room has 2 beds on the 2nd floor. The elevator to the rooms is small and a bit tight.

The room had nice colors and we had a good view looking out onto the street. I did not notice really any noise and slept well. Although the beds were small, the sheets were nice, the mattress was very comfortable, not too stiff or hard. I expect small beds from a hotel in Europe, so was not surprised. The room and bathroom sparkling clean. It had new carpet and the room had a fresh smell. There was a flat screen TV, on the wall right opposite of the beds perfectly located.

They had one of the best breakfasts. There are two breakfast options. One was near the hotel reception with fresh meats, eggs, orange juice, bread, brownies, toast and many other options. Also you can have breakfast in the Italian restaurant. There you can order an omelets, and also has Italian meats, toast, jams.

I really like this hotel and would stay there again. I liked how clean and modern it was. The service and staff was excellent. I travel all over the world and this really is a nice change from most hotels in Europe and would recommend it to friends.

OK. Well of course that's not true. However we have been travelling to the fantastic city of Helsinki for various reasons for many years now and have never known the weather to be so consistently good.
So, what can Klaus K really guarantee?

Fantastic location for starters. Situated on Bulevardi right in the centre of the city. A gentle stroll gets you just about anywhere be it the shops, harbour or bus and railway stations.

The rooms (do vary in size - just ask when booking) are kept well cleaned and have everything you need for a comfortable stay.

The staff on the front desk are always friendly, accommodating and happy to help.

The hotel offers not one but two brilliant choices for breakfast. The first being a Nordic selection of fish, cheeses, meats , yoghurts , cereals and delicious breads.
The second choice is served in the Toscanini restaurant (and on the terrace if the weather is good) and offers a selection of Italian cold meats , cheeses and delicious breads. Gorgonzola for breakfast - whatever next ?!.Yummy all the same.

As regards price we find it just right given the standard and location.

Looking forward to a return visit soon. Definitely in December maybe sooner.

Recommended.

Room Tip: Some other reviewers have mentioned noise coming from the trams outside. That is true and inevitable...

Thank you Bob1998 for you review.
It's really nice that you visited Helsinki during the exceptional heat period. Unfortunately Klaus K can not take any credit for that :)
See you in December!

They have always known how to live with details in Klaus K, but now they have taken everything to the new level. New Sky Lofts as they call them are really spacious, cool and well planned. I'm also proud to tell that this hotel is officially the first gay friendly hotel in Helsinki and got inspired by Kalevala, Finnish national epic. What does this inspiration mean? You can find it in many details there. And if you don't them know ask from their staff - probably you will get the friendliest service in Finland. Simply WOW!!

It is a European 5 star hotel. Everything to Your need and a nice rich breakfast. Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are clean but some of the rooms have a poor view though. Quite pricy but located in the city center.

Room Tip: Ask about the view!

I am a Finn who has lived my whole life in London. I stayed in the Klaus K in July with my mum, when visiting family. I could not get a room in my first choice: the GLO hotel. To be honest, I was quite disappointed. The two single beds were very narrow. We looked over a boring and dark courtyard. The TV was at an odd angle which meant you couldn't watch it from bed. To watch it you would have had to sit in a single armchair. I told reception that this is very odd for a hotel room and asked why they hadn't put the TV on a swinging arm, so you could change the angle. I don't think that a lot of my English or American friends would have found this acceptable. There was no bath. I told the reception that I found the bathroom very small. They said that all rooms had similar sized bathrooms. We went to breakfast at 9.00am. Maybe a bit late, but selection was very limited and they had run out of a lot of food. I'm not going to say it was 'poor' but for over 200 euros a night I wouldn't go again. The one thing it has going for it is the location, but so do a lot of hotels in Helsinki.

Room Tip: Ask for a room where you can see the TV from bed.

I stayed there for a few days and the service was excellent. I orderderd some fruits and wine to room upon arrival and it was wonderful.
Needed my clothes (sporting) washed - no problem.
Breakfast was great and if I will arrive again to Helsinki - this will be my hotel.
This trip was made before repairs of hotel so you can only imagine how good it is now.
