    Lovely, modern hotel in a great location in Helsinki. It was convenient to lots of restaurants and shops.
    We only spent one night here. I wish that we'd had more time. The room was comfortable and nice.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Kamp Helsinki

    Loved the Kamp!

    from

    We had spent a week with a friend in another part of Finland and were repeatedly told, "Ooooh, the Kamp is NICE!" She wasn't kidding. It was the most amazing place I've ever stayed. The room was huge. The bathroom was fabulous, it was gigantic with a deep soaking tub and a separate shower with a massaging head. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a wonderful location, close to sights and great shopping.

    All of the buildup to our stay made we worry that the Kamp would be stuffy and intimidating, but its not at all. We had a fabulous, relaxed, enjoyable stay. Would love to go back some day.

    And the Baked Alaska at the Brasserie is wonderful!

    Great Experience, except for service in the bar

    from

    Over all our stay was a great experience. The hotel is located in the middle of city center. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. The room was tastefully furnished and the marble bathroom was very nice and exceptionally large. The breakfast buffet was very good and the staff was excellent. The only think that kept our stay from being perfect was the service in the bar area. I would be willing to over look this except that it happened on more than one occasion - three consecutive evenings, as a matter of fact. We walked out the first evening. On the following two evenings we waited over 15 minutes before we were ever acknowledged and it was over 30 minutes by the time we were served our drinks. I find this is inexcusable for a hotel of this caliber. Also, don't expect to see the mirror room which is so frequently pictured and associated with the hotel, as it if kept under lock and key. It is a nice hotel, though, and we will stay there again on our next trip.

    Scandinavia's Best!

    from

    This is got to be one of the best hotel's in Scandinavia. Every detail of this hotel is 5 star without being stuffy or obnoxious. Staff is wonderful. Rooms are a bit small. Hotel is also in a great location, in the center of downtown Helsinki, few minutes walk to the food market, department stores and shops and restaurants.

    A fantastic experience

    from

    After being recommended the Kämp through friends, we decided to have a weekend break in Helsinki in the end of June 2004. The Hotel is an institution in Helsinki and we immediately understood why. The interior is amazing, even though we were very surprised when we found out that the last "version" of the hotel only had existed for a few years. The five stars is awarded to the fabulous room, the smiling staff, the amazing breakfast, and the best location in town. The one thing I missed was a better view from the room; the inside of a mall isn't my favourite landscape.

    Outstanding! Reason Enough to Visit Helsinki

    from

    Hotel Kamp is a triumph of taste and service. This was our second trip in a year, and we returned because we so enjoyed the first. Having everything go perfectly was essential since we were hosts for another couple. Every detail was positive. I cannot find a nit to pick. We suggest a summer visit because of the hotel's unmatched location beside the Esplanade (and also because of the attractive rates then). We're fortunate enough to have had considerable experience (as leisure and not business travelers), and we are confident in recommending Hotel Kamp as one of the best hotels in the world.

    A Memorable Event

    from

    While still living in Finland, I had my wedding reception in the Mirror Room and stayed at the hotel for two nights afterwards.For event planning, I'd give the hotel five stars. The staff is extremely helpful and willing to make sure your expectations are met. Your personal planner takes care of all the details and works out all the planning kinks. The chefs are very flexible and willing to work with you to create the perfect menu (even if it includes creating new drinks and changing their cake plan).

    During the event, there is always someone there to make sure you don't have anything to worry about. The waiters were courteous and always on hand.

    For my stay, I'd give the hotel four stars. The amenities are very pleasing and I enjoyed the way the rooms were decorated (though they are a bit on a the small size, which is common in Helsinki). The service is good but you must ask for it. Make sure to have breakfast in your room, and plan on eating a light lunch afterwards. The food I received was the equivalent of about three breakfasts.

    The location is perfect if you plan on exploring the city and is close to the railway station and central bus station.

    Great Hotel

    from

    Probably one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in. Beautifully appointed rooms, large comfortable beds, marble bathroom with separate shower and bath.

    We booked B&B, which meant we could have breakfast served in the room - so much nicer than having to get up and go down to the inevitable buffet.

    Also it's right in the centre of town and within easy walking distance of everything.

    I would definitely stay here again.

    Recommend the kamp

    from

    Excellent hotel - good rooms great breakfast (especially the fish) and braodband in the room - hat more can you ask for!

    Service wanting

    from

    No stranger to luxury hotels, I was impressed by the physical ammenities of Hotel Kamp. The beds are extremely comfortable.

    Surprising, though, was the shoddy service once in my room. My luggage, that arrived late at the airport, was never brought to my room until I phoned the desk many hours after its expected arrival. A fax arrived for me, and again I wasn't contacted. The promise of robes and slippers in the room was broken and the spa facilities (sauna) were expensive add-ons. Returning late one evening, I was approached by a gruff man who demanded my room key before being allowed entry to the lobby! This is an over-rated money pit that is best passed by.

    The real deal

    from

    Starwood Luxury Collection hotels do not always make the grade (eg see my Pulitzer review). The Kamp is the real thing, however. Converted in 1999 with no expense spared, this is a beautiful mix of English country house / London club style in a great location. Rooms are a decent size with luxurious fittings and wonderful bathrooms. Beautiful public areas and a good value brasserie (plus an expensive restaurant - the best in Finland, apparently.) No pool and guests have to pay for the gym and spa but it looked worth it when I had a peep. I paid just Euro 150 which included breakfast - if you can get this rate at a weekend then you have no excuse for staying anywhere else in Helsinki.

    After a brief tour of old Tallinn, we boarded the ferry to travel to Finland. Our bus went downstairs and we were in the business class lounge on the ferry. Jane and I stitched as we crossed the Baltic Sea. Then we got back on the bus in Finland. Liisa gave us a tour from the bus. She was very funny. Everyone has saunas according to our guide. We …

    Tuesday morning was similar to Monday. Slept in a bit, went for breakfast in the hotel, got ready and headed out for more exploring. We walked about 20 minutes to see the Rock Church, an amazing church built (surprise!) into rock. It was quite beautiful and peaceful; I might actually consider going to church every week if I had that cool …

    On March 29, Brad and I continued our Nordic adventures with a weekend away in Helsinki, Finnland.

    First impressions were like being in a parallel universe – across the world, we got into the cab only to hear Norah Jones on the radio and drove into the city through what looked like the highways near Banff, but flat! And I felt very …

    I have spent the last two days full on going to mini seminars and visiting facilities. It has been a great experience to be able to have access to the aged care system in Finland and to find out so much about the way that they manage aged care. Chris got the Helsinki card and I think he has travelled on every tram line in the city. He had also …
