Kalastajatorppa oozes old Finnish charm. The hotel is clearly proud of its heritage, now part of the Hilton chain but that does not get in the way of the feel of the place. The hotel has been tastefully updated. We were upgraded to a suite upon arrival, which obviously helped the overall experience. The room looked over the other wing of the hotel straight into a bay on the Baltic. Absolutely stunning view!
We also sampled the saunas available for the hotel guests, which again were very old school Finnish in a positive way.
Breakfast is nicely organised with almost cafe feel to it. Selection and service were both excellent.
If you want walking distance to Helsinki centre, Kalastajatorppa is not for you, but a tram that will take you downtown is only 3 minutes walk from the main entrance. There are also some decent restaurants around if you know where to look. Ask the hotel for directions to e.g. restaurant Solna.
Overall and excellent experience and come summer definitely the place to stay in Helsinki. As long as you are not set on having to stay downtown.
