Recently stayed at the Kamp hotel early Sept for 3 nights. It is strategically located on the scenic Esplanaadi minutes away from market sq and the harbour. It is right in the Kamp gallery shopping arcade and next to the main shopping area in Helsinki. The Main railway station /bus terminal is within 5-10 min walk, a pleasant walk away. If you're arriving by air, both the Finnair bus (EUR6.20) or Bus # 615 (EUR4) will end at the station. They both take about 35 min. You couldn't ask for a better location for all the convenience. As a SPG gold, I got upgraded to the upper floor (8th) facing the inner courtyard. So, not much of a view. Nevertheless, the room was very well laid out and the decor was elegant for a SPG luxury collection. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom came with a shower and a separate bathtub. The spa and gym was just down the hallway from the room on the 8th floor. The opening hours is too limiting for one to be able to utilize the sauna after 10 pm. I do agree with the other reviews, the check-in process was just average and nothing to consider memorable or welcoming. But again, I don't speak finnish so other comments about them not speaking finnish doesn't concern me. I didn't have breakfast there so I can't comment on that. The entrance is on the side street off Esplanadi and not on the maid road. The largest dept store in Scandinavia, Stockmann is a mere 2-3 blocks away. Stockmann basement is a great place to stock up on food and snacks. Other breakfast option can be found along Esplanadi and across the entrance at the popular Karl Fazer Cafe. You will also find other delicious desserts and chocolates. I would consider staying here again, just for the location and the decent hotel.
