I've stayed twice at the Klaus K, both times for a full week on business (it takes me three days to feel human again after jet-lag.) On my first visit I had a very large room; had no idea why reviewers would possibly complain about room size. My second visit I had a much smaller room; the building renovations have resulted in room layouts that are very different; there may not be two identical rooms in the hotel! But that is a large part of the Klaus K’s charm; you are not staying in a cookie-cutter hotel but in a beautifully renovated building in the center of town. The location could not be better, there is a tram stop right outside the front door, and the main railway station is in walking distance. The folks at the front desk are very helpful and I learned to get all around the city on their excellent tram system. They also steered me to excellent local restaurants in the evenings. The Klaus K breakfast buffet will keep you going until dinner (Americans quickly discover that food is expensive in Helsinki) and if the weather is bad the Italian restaurant is a great choice and you don’t even have to step outside. Although there are many great restaurants in Helsinki, it is nice to have an excellent one right on the premises! I wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else on my next trip; even if they put me in a closet, the location, service and food make the Klaus K my first and only choice.
