“Sleek, modern and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2009

Stayed at the Klaus K for 2 days at the beginning of July before heading to a wedding further north. As we were travelling all the way to Finland, we thought it'd be a shame not to see Helsinki while we were there, but we also wanted to treat ourselves to a stay in a nice hotel. And the Klaus K certainly fit that bill. Firstly the location is excellent - right in the centre. First impressions of the hotel are that it's very stylish and modern. Upon check in we were offered free wifi and when we said we had an ipod they also offered a free docking station for the duration of our stay. A really nice touch (though I do wonder why they don't just install them permanently in the rooms). Our bedroom was on the 2nd floor and had views over the roof of the kitchen, so not picturesque, but we just pulled the think curtains over to block the view. The decor in the room was very nice indeed - very modern and classy. The bed was extremely comfortable (and I am very fussy when it comes to beds!) Downsides to the room - the TV was weird and had a blue tinge to it that we couldn't get rid of plus it was very slow to react to changing volume or channels; there was very little storage probably to keep the minimalist look, but we ended up with clothes on various chairs around the room; the bathroom was lovely but impracticle as the floor got soaked from the shower and there was no way of drying it. Despite those minor things though I still loved the room. The attention to detail in the decorating was lovely. The breakfast buffet was excellent too with plenty of choice to suit everyone... especially liked the variety of freshly cooked breads and the incredible jams. We also drank at the bar Ahjo which was very trendy and did lovely cocktails - I couldn't decide what to have and the waitress then preceded to make up a cocktail from my favourite ingredients! It's these small touches that make the Klaus K a great hotel to stay at if you're visiting Helsinki.

I have stayed at the Klaus K a few times now and am always impressed by the positiveness and professional attitude of the staff. Considering the number of people who must come through the door, they always still seem to greet you like a returning friend rather than just another punter and any request is never too much trouble for them. Some of the rooms are on the small side and there are instances where design seems to have hijacked practicality (no plugs in the wash basins?) but, like others have reported, the location is ideal for exploring central Helsinki and the breakfasts are excellent. Free wi-fi in the rooms - though, be warned, there may not be a surface to put your laptop on! It's customer service which counts the most though and when it comes to making customers feel valued and just a bit special, the Klaus K is top of the tree.

I have stayed at the Klaus K hotel at least 10 times in the last 6 months. As an invetrate business traveler the Klaus K and its team is # 1 in terms of the quality of the accommodation and attentiveness of the staff. The accommodation, bar and restaurants are distinctive, the rooms modest in size but excellently-designed, and the entire experience is combines the best of boutique and traditional hotel worlds. Lastly, the business support, including two excellent meeting rooms, is all that anyone could ask. Marc and his staff are an excellent, ever-present teams, and have my congratulations on a creating a special experience.

Really a wonderful place! It gave me the peace and relaxation I needed. Unfortunately I did not order anything from the roomservice in the evening. But the breakfast which I had in my room was great. It took me one hour to even eat half of it. And everything was delicious. I want to come back and stay forever!

Klaus K is a relaxed design hotel that takes very seriously it's business. You can't find anything better in Helsinki. Klaus K erves also Helsinki's best breakfast. Klaus K and its night club Ahjo are popular among the Helsinki art world people.
