I was not an hotel guest but I was tired of my trip in the Helsinki rainy centre and I tried to have luck asking a massage in the spa.I was lucky! the massage with a Miss L., a serious and professional therapist with golden hands was faboulos! The classic (sport) massage of 55 minutes was "only" (considering Helsinki prices and the luxurious hotel compound) 84 euro! the best thing was the complimentary use of the thermal brand new spa inside, componing of classic finnish sauna, steam grotto, hamman (big with impressive decor), holistic shower and relaxation area. the international touch was the mixed guest access (quite uncommon in Finland) that I found pleasant because I don't liked naked people around me (better mixed but covered that naked of the same sex) but this is a personal opinion.
definitely go, it was not busy at all, and after that 2 hours I feel a real diva!!

I had the destinct displeasure of staying in this 5 star hotel on 16 and 17th August 2011 & had all of my preccription medication stolen from my wash bag in the bathroom of my room. I must warn fellow travelers to beware of prescription medication thefts in this hotel, as having spoken to several others on our trip I discovered that they had antibiotics stolen as well. The reception staff were going to look into it and provide me with details of their investigations into the electronic key card activation to my room. It is now the 30th August & I have not had the reply!
Fellow travellers lock your prescription medication in your safe when staying at this hotel.

We recently spent two nights at the Hotel Kamp on a last-minute weekend getaway. Its location is outstanding - a stone's throw from the vast majority of places of interest, to include the train station. The staff at the hotel was friendly and helpful and our room was large, bright, and well-appointed. The business center is tiny, with only two computers, and there are no time limits placed on users when others are waiting. This can be trying when a thoughtless guest camps out for an extended period. The bar was closed when we were there and we did not make use of the spa facilities. The breakfast at the hotel is outrageously priced, so we walked down to the market and had suitable, filling meals for a fraction the cost.

I was very disappointed with this hotel and the spa. I thought I would be staying in a real 5 star european hotel. This was clearly not that case. While the location is great. The hotel is tired (i.e., stains on carpeting, no alarm clocks in the rooms, old beds, etc.) and the staff (with the exception of Benny -- who was nice and helpful), was not very pleasant (mostly the front desk women). I would never stay here again and would not recommend it to anyone. The hotel next door seemed to be a better choice. SPG you should be ashamed of yourself for marketing this hotel as 5 star. Also, spend some time training staff on basic customer service skills. What a total let down....

Room Tip: Request an early arrival room!

Extremely comfortable and well-located. Standard rooms were large, well furnished and quiet. Service was top-notch and staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. This was by far the best hotel we stayed in during our tour of Scandinavia.

Only a few minor complaints. The gym was closed for several hours in the middle of the day and the shower stall was rather cramped and small.

Kamp is centrally located and very elegant.
It is a places for celebrities in Helsinki (e.g. Rolling Stones stayed there) and it is cozy also for normal people.

I've stayed at Kamp now on four separate business trips. The hotel is in one of the best locations in Helsinki - easily walkable to nearly all sights, nightlife, and good restaurants. Also it is very convenient to the central station, metro, ferries to Suomenllina, and boats to Talinn/Stockholm.

The rooms here are very nice, and are large by European standards. The bathrooms are especially large and well done. The beds are comfortable and there's plenty of storage space. On the occasions where I've had special requests (firmer pillows, etc.) the hotel has been very accommodating. One minor complaint is the television - the channels change very slowly and take a second or two of skipping before they become watchable.

The service is usually good; when there have been questions on my bill, etc., they have always been resolved promptly. One area of major complaint is the room service offering and food offering in general. The room service menu is quite poor, very expensive, and does not very well describe the dishes, so what you end up getting is a bit of a surprise. Overall, I find the food options at the hotel very disappointing. However, the gym facility is very nice as is the spa.

Kamp is a Helsinki institution and in general it's a great hotel. I'd appreciate a bit more attention to the detail and an improved offering for meals and room service.
