Reviewed June 14, 2012

We stayed for 3 nights in the beginning of June. Location is very quiet and far away from the central city -for us it was a perfect choise, because of some party nearby. Some booking sites says it is a 5 star hotel, but it is not. It is a good 4 star hotel. No piccolo service available without asking.

We had to change the first room on the 8th on to the 7th floor because even it was a non-smoking room it was stinky. I don't know whether it was an old smoking room or if the previous guest didn't mind... The 7th floor is actually the 2nd floor in the main building; they start counting from the first floor in the sea wing, so actually the street level where the reception is, already is the 6th floor :)

Room was spacious with wooden floor, free Wifi and a flat screen tv. Beds were just fine, at least hardness was good for my back. Bathroom was newly renovated I suppose, but something went wrong because water was flooding on the bathroom floor after showering in the shower cabin. They should place a sweeper in the bathroom to dry the floor! Bathroom was also very hot and temperature was not adjustable.

Breakfast was not included but excellent, though expensive. We also had dinner in the restaurant and got some excellent food. Some people have written it is very expensive, but comparing the quality, taste and friendly service I consider it as a good experience.

All in all I can recommend Kalastajatorppa if you don't mind the distance from the city. I have been there sveral times and still going back! Instead of busy city life enjoy beautiful nature, sea and good jogging possibilities. Also the famous Seurasaari is within a walking distance and well worth of visiting! Take children with you to feed domestic squirrels!

Room Tip: Ask room in the main building if you want a balkony, sea wing if you want a stunning sea wiev

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review here on TripAdvisor!

We are very happy to hear that you have stayed with us before and feel also wish to come back. Thank you for pointing out the five stars that some booking sites mention, we are in fact a four star hotel and unfortunately some sites take it upon themselves to have their own star rating for hotels. We also appreciate your comments about the bathroom and your suggestion about a sweeper, yours feedback has been forwarded to the appropriate department.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed breakfast at our hotel, we do offer rates both inclusive and exclusive of breakfast in order to cater for everyone's needs.

The location of the hotel is indeed great if you wish to enjoy your stay close to nature in more quiet surroundings by the sea.

Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to your next visit with us!

Kind regards,

Daniela Öhman

Stayed here for a couple of nights in April. Had a one bed suite which was spacious with two great bathrooms (as we've come to expect from Hiltons). It's definitely a business hotel, so a touch impersonal but we loved the quiet location next to water. It's only a short walk to the tram that takes you straight into the city. Breakfast was excellent with great variety, and dinner was really good too - focussing on local cuisine.

Rooms clean and up to date

Cons:
Far from downtown
Food in restaurant is not varied or very good, and is VERY expensive
Staff is rude and incompetent (couldn't even handle booking a taxi)

My first visit to Kalastajatorppa, and suppousingly not the last one. Nice service, great food on the conference center, and good breakfast. Nice view from the room to the surrounding nature, saw some rabbits from the window. :)

For a few months, I've come here fairly regularly - the Hilton Kalastajatorppa is my first choice. It is conveniently located close to major Pfizer, IBM and Nokia locations; not far from Espoo, where a number of other international companies are located.
The friendly staff make me feel at home away from home, and the setting right on the waterfront is beautiful. There is a good running track to and around the Island Seurasaari.
It is a quiet neighbourhood, with not many restaurants, but Solna is a very good place to go to. Tram line 4 runs right to the city centre at convenient intervals and takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Now, with about 20 hours of light, the rooms have good blind-out curtains.
The one item I would critizise is that WiFi internet access is not included, which seems a bit out-of-date.

Room Tip: almost no traffic around the hotel anywhere - only "Standard Rooms" do not have any sea vi...
