We just loved this hotel, really unusual, more of an experience than a hotel stay.
We were met by a very competent receptionist who was also very friendly, (as were all the receptionists we met during our stay). There was a minor problem at the start of our stay but mistakes happen and I believe in judging a hotel on how they rectify a mistake. In this case the mistake was rectified to our complete satisfation.
We loved our room, well furnished, ultra clean, with a really comfortable bed and a big bathroom with a double shower. We had good WIFI reception in our room, room 214.
Breakfast was in the main restaurant and there was lots to choose from, including freshly made homemade breads. All served buffet style so you could help yourself to as much or as little as you wanted.
All of the public parts of the hotel were well furnished and all of the staff we met were helpfull and friendly, as was the lady manager who always seemed to be available when her staff needed her help.
The hotel grounds were nice and the outside terrace bar was really enjoyable in good weather, the pub inside was nice, too. Although we don't have kids it was nice to see that the hotel catered to children by providing a games room for them. (see photo). There was also a small well-equipped gym.
Another plus for us was the tram stop right outside the hotel entrance. The tram went right into the centre and the station was only 100 yds from on of the stops so that saved us taxi fares. The cathedral, the market square and the ferry terminal for Suomenlinna island are all along this route.
One of the main motives we loved Helsinki was the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Hotel Katajanokka. We would never dream of staying anywhere else if we return to Helsinki and we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others. A thank you to all the staff who made our stay a great experience.
