“Good location, small room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Arrived late from airport, the room is really small. Hotel seems to converted from historic building. For short stay is all right, would expect at least 50%~100% more space to be comparable to other chain hotel room space, e.g. Radisson Blue in Helsinki are.
Also quite a lot of stuff which make room even smaller. E.g. a tray of local products for customer to purchasing.

We have several different types/sizes of rooms to select from. I hope to welcome you back. I am certain we can find the right fit for you. Please contact me so I can handle your reservation personally. All the best, Marc Skvorc, General Manager

Great location, upscale trendy hotel and room, but after staying here 5 nights, the room is really getting on my nerves. Lack of counter space near the bed, in the bathroom, the strange layout of the room, the tiny non-existent closet, claustrophic entry way, and no bathtub, all add to an experience that's subpar for such a pricey hotel. Perhaps there are better rooms than the one I got (room 606) and I am willing to try this place again, but for this stay, it's 3 stars.

Dear fudy, I am sorry you felt dissappointed. I will be very upfront, I understand that a long term stay like 5 days will be challenging in our smallest of rooms. I appreciate the fact that you said you would return. Please contact me directly so I may handle your reservation personally. I promise your next stay will be more comfortable. All the best, Marc Skvorc, General Manager

Excellent location in the centre of town so you can walk to most of the attractions. Rooms are small but well appointed. Each floor has a theme that carries through to the room. I had a Mini Cooper themed room. The public areas are excellent, quiet and comfortable and the breakfast was a great mix of local and international dishes. I would stay here again.

Recently remodeled very nicely with all the amenities. Rooms are compact, comfortable and well-appointed.
The breakfast was a mix of fresh local foods with many of them organic.
The staff was a pleasure to work with during the stay.
Public transport is right outside the door with many shops and sights within easy walking distance.
If there were room, I would ask for a bigger work desk in the room but that is the only quibble.

I have recently returned from a business trip where we stayed at the Klaus K for one night, and I have to say that, despite working in travel and having seen many, many 5 star (and less) hotels, I was still EXTREMELY impressed by the Klaus K.

I read the reviews and was under the impression that the rooms would be tiny with no room to swing a cat. I had a standard double room and had enough room to swing a few cats in it if I needed to. Very comfortable bed. Beautifully decorated, very modern and you can tell that a lot of time has been spent on attention to detail and a lot of money has been spent on the refurb. The hotel oozes quality throughout.

The toiletries in the bathroom were very high quality, and I like the fact that they were not in individual bottles. This meant that they are more environmentally friendly and you can use as much or as little as you want with a lot less wastage. The bathroom itself had a brilliant waterfall shower and was designed as a wet room, though rooms with bath tubs are also available.

The decor of the hotel was stunning throughout, very modern boutique. Staff were very pleasant and friendly. Great healthy breakfast.

A voucher for a complimentary drink in the bar was also available in the room. I took advantage and enjoyed a large glass of beautiful white wine.

I haven't considered Helsinki as a weekend break before, but my stay at the Klaus K has made me want to return to be able to share this fabulous hotel with my husband.

Oh and fantastic location too!!

Room Tip: If you prefer to have a bath tub, request this when making the booking.

Stayed here on business but it would be equally good for pleasure. Went for an upgraded room which only cost an additional €15 but was well worth it for the space. The room and the hotel are very well put together and make for a relaxing stay. Breakfast was all that I ate in the hotel but was very good and the staff were attentive and helpful. The hotel is in a great location for exploring Helsinki. It is easy to access the established tourist areas and some of the upcoming streets where there are some very individual shops and restaurants. It is a particularly good city to visit if you are interested in design and the Klaus K is an excellent base for that. My only (small) gripe would be the lift which had confusing controls – if too many people inserted their cards to select their floor it seem to become confused and lost all selections. But I reported this and the staff showed genuine concern at my comments so this may well have been fixed by now.

Room Tip: Worth paying a bit extra to upgrade to a better room.
