“Excellent Location, Great Food”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

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.

Klaus K is a great hotel on multiple levels. The rooms are well appointed, and even the single rooms are very comfortable and modern. The location is great - less than 10 minute walk to the train/bus station and on a very charming street near to plenty of shopping and restaurants. It was easy to walk all over Helsinki from the hotel. Furthermore, the breakfast and service were both excellent.

Very convenient. Great Italian Restaurant on property with friendly staff. Food was excellent. Breakfast was a great plus as well. The room was just okay. Tried too hard to be trendy and ended up looking dark and ugly. Bed was not comfortable. It could definitely use a tea kettle service in the room. Bathroom was bizarre. Every time you used the shower the entire bathroom floor was soaking wet. Thank goodness for plentiful towels to clean it up. But really, a very poorly designed shower. Room was just way too dark .no closet space at all. They really could have done more with the available space in the room.

Dear Glamint, I am very sorry that you appear to have been very unsatisfied with your room. Did you have time to express this to our reception team to see if something could be done? Normally, we can. In any case, I have taken your comments seriously and we will review rooms that appear to be dark and see where and how we could add additional light. Two years ago, I added extra cupboards to the rooms to provide guests with more space to store things. I will also take this into consideration when we evaluate the lighting. I am sorry to read that you felt we were trying to be trending since we have actually avoided that and strive to be more timeless and sustainable with our decisions. I hope I can welcome you back to Klaus K again in the future. Please let me know if I can handle your reservation personally. All the best, Marc Skvorc, General Manager

As a European currently residing in the US, i've become accustomed to really large (sometimes excessively so) hotel rooms. Often in Europe where space is more limited we don't have this luxury and that is certainly the case at the Klaus K.

The picture in this review says it all - the shower head is almost overhanging the toilet which makes for some messy showers as there's no separation between the shower and everything else in the bathroom. I have to say though I was by myself so it didn't bother me so much but if more than one person was in the room it could get a little daunting.

Size aside, this hotel is fantastic - the staff are super helpful and all speak English really well. The decor is modern yet still has a homely air about it. The breakfast includes a lot of traditional Finnish cuisine but there's also a restaurant on the ground floor which was always packed when I stayed but i've never actually eaten there. There is also a gym but like the rooms, it's pretty small.

Size aside, it's a fantastic hotel but it is expensive - but hey, you pay for what you get.

Dear whereisnext, I appreciate your constructive and complimentary comments. You raise a good point about this room and I will personally take another look at it with my architects to see if we can change the bathroom configuration. I appreciate your positive comments about our team, the breakfast and our Toscanini restaurant. In addition, I am happy to hear you used the gym. I would be happy to show you our larger rooms since we have rooms in many categories available up to 55 square meters. Thank you for your review in Trip Advisor and I look forward to welcoming you back to Klaus K and perhaps try a different room. All the best, Marc Skvorc, General Manager

This hotel is very convenient and centrally located. The room had plenty of space (maybe other reviewers with space issues had different themed room - I was in the Envy Plus). Lots of nice touches in the rooms - local snacks, comfy decor, great shampoo and products, blackout shades (it was barely dark outside), etc. Best of all, the staff was very helpful, accommodating, and genuinely seemed to be happy to be there and helping guests. The food was delicious, especially the Tuscan restaurant on site. The decor of the hotel was interesting, with more than meets the eye - there seemed to be a story behind many of the elements that tied them together. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Helsinki.
