“Chic AND Cheerful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2008

Having just returned from a long weekend at the Klaus K hotel in Helsinki, I can vouch (as a seasoned traveller) that this place is in a class of its own. As soon as you walk into the ever so stylish reception, to be greeted with a big grin from the staff, you know this is a special place. Exceptional rooms (Envy Suite) decked out in modern, yet homey Scandinavian style, the entire hotel has managed to combine original design, with an inviting and unpretentious atmosphere. There was a nice mix of guests and both nights we ate inside the hotel (there are three small restaurants) and had phenomenal dinners, Finnish food the first night and Italian the second. Not forgetting to mention the freshest breakfasts and best selection of breads I've ever tasted! We wiled away Saturday afternoon in the hotel sauna (fired up specially for the two of us!) and spent the rest of the weekend wandering the pretty streets, admiring art nouveau architecture, fabulous cafes, taking in museums, a boat trip, ice skating and spending money in some of the funkiest interiors shops we'd ever seen (Ittalla/Marimekko etc). All this recommended by the ultra helpful Klaus K staff, armed with a never ending 'things to do' list and eager to share their enthusiasm for their city. For a city break, this hotel is hard to beat! We'll be going back.

Had a couple from Germany visiting Finland and we wanted to show them a fun side of Helsinki. Booked two rooms at Klaus K for a Friday night in December. We had a normal size room which was very cool. They had a much bigger room which was just awesome. The hotel reminded me a little bit of Hudson in New York.
Started our afternoon at the Toscanini restaurant and enjoyed a Tuscan style Xmas lunch there. The food was great as well as the service. We had dinner somewhere else but we returned to Ahjo bar around 1 a.m. Luckily we were guests at the hotel because the line to get in was about an hour. Danced the night away and had a hard time waking up the next morning. The bed was very comfortable. Luckily breakfast was served until 11:30 a.m.

I am a regular visitor to Klaus K on my business trips to Helsinki. A nice design hotel with an excellent location in the very center of the city. The staff is very helpful and you get service with a smile. The breakfast is fairly limited but of very good quality (the freshly baked bread is a highlight, particularly if you are an early bird). The standard rooms are pretty small so you might want to request something a bit larger if you intend to spend a bit more time indoors.

Eventhough we live in Helsinki, our family takes occasional minibreak in Klaus K. We spend the day shopping around downtown and usually have dinner at the either of the hotels restaurants and stay overnight.

The amtosphere is alway welcoming and the staff makes you feel like valued customer.

Rooms (specially the bed) are very nice, even in the smalest category.

Klaus K is a perfect getaway even for us, who live in Helsinki. Stayed there with wife after a friend's wedding party and loved it all the way. Great service, nice rooms and one of the best breakfast buffet's in Helsinki.

This is our third visit to the Klaus K and without a doubt the best.
A very polite young gentleman came scurrying out of the hotel in the cold November evening weather the moment our taxi pulled up outside the door and helped us with our luggage.

Very friendly and super efficient lady at reception dealt with checking us in.There was a problem with the reservation but she took control in a very calm manner and sorted this out for us.

The hotel seems to have raised its standards since our last visit the rooms are cleaned to a very high standard ( this was our only main issue on our last visit ).

The breakfast remains superb and is a lavish affair of fruit breads fish meats and plenty more.

Superb location.Recommended.

  • Liked — The staff and their superb service and politeness
  • Disliked — Being picky here but the small bathroom

We were staying at Envy Plus -room with my wife. I had been there a really long ago when the hotel was ordinary chain hotel Klaus Kurki. The change has been tremendous.

Everything is renovated and the staff is all new. The best part of the hotel is its restaurants and especially the breakfast.

There are different sizes of rooms, be aware that smallest rooms are really tiny. Envy plus room is roomy, there's nice decor and comfy bed. The hotel has it's own entertainment system, so there's movies and music to choose. Movies are bit expensive but the music selection was free. A nive way to check out new albums.

Our room was on the street side at it caused a little noise. There goes three tram lines at Bulevardi, which are convenient ways to explore the city, but it also causes noise. Tram goes from dawn 'til midnight. There's also a taxi stop next the hotel main door and especially at fri and sat nigths there's a drunken crowds time to time when nearby restaurants are getting closed.

Klaus K is excellent hotel. I suggest, that while booking, check out the size of the room and not book the smaller ones. I also suggest that you book your room on the other side of the building than street side.
