Historical Traveler Reviews Klaus K Hotel Helsinki
Great hotel with good prices
Klaus K is a wonderful hotel. It's only one year old after its make over. Centrally located if you like to walk and with a tram stop just at the door if you are not a sport people.
Design is everywhere from the all-white desk to the carpet in the aisles. We stayed in an envy-plus room, really big room with a large sitting room and one bedroom. Two flat-tvs and one DVD player. Bed very comfortable and really king size. And bathroom was superb with heated floor,it was cool to walk around barefoot.
Besides hotel has three good restaurants that close late. Breakfast is good but we missed some hot dishes.
Rates quite good for the quality.
I hope the pictures will give you a fair idea what I mean.
And I will come back for sure in my visits to Finland.
Very nice design hotel
Hotel Klausk K is a new design hotel located in the center of Helsinki, just perfect for shopping and sightseeing. The hotel is very modern and beautiful, but obviously designed with also guest comfort in mind. Service is top notch in the hotel and also in the restaurants. One waiter from the downstairs Italian restaurant offered to carry my luggage when I arrived since there was no porter downstairs then and one waitress in Filmitähti restaurant went searching for batteries for our camera when our batteries run out of power. Now that's the kind of service you rarely get in Finland. Fantastic!
Our room, Desire, was big, comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. Especially the bed was fantastic and I loved the rainshower in the bathroom. The toiletries were also very nice, better than usual. Even though the hotel is so centrally located, there was hardly any bothering noise from outside, mainly just a quiet hum of traffic. The room had a flat screen tv, a dvd-player, a minibar and you could also listen to tv or dvd in the bathroom by simply pushing a button...
My only complaint would be the breakfast. To be fair, there is plenty to choose from, because there is bread, cereals, yoghurt, fruits, cold cuts, pastries and juices etc., but no warm dishes at all. Not even boiled eggs. I don't usually eat anything else than cereals for breakfast at home, but its always nice to indulge yourself when on holiday and especially my boyfriend missed his usual hotel breakfast of bacon and eggs. They do have these "breakfast plates" you can order, but at 16 EUR, I don't think they would be worth the money.
But in spite of the breakfast, I would definitely stay here again. I have found my new favourite hotel in Helsinki.
Hätte nicht besser sein können
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in diesem "Design"-Hotel, das am schönen Bulevardi und in der Nähe des Designviertels von Helsinki liegt, sehr genossen. Man kommt überall schnell hin - Straßenbahn vor der Tür und zu Fuß ist man in 10 Minuten am Bahnhof. Das Foyer sagt alles über das Hotel - smart, hip und pulsierend und einer eierförmigen Rezeption. Wir hatten eine "Envy"-Zimmer im 5.Stock zur Straße hin, dass sehr individuell in braunen, goldenen und blauen Farben eingerichtet war. Das L-förmige Zimmer war groß und hatte eine Sitzecke und das Bett war superkomfortabel. Das Zimmer war gut ausgestattet mit interessanter Beleuchtung, einem Barkühlschrank, Flachbildfernseher und einem Tisch. Und es sah gut aus. Das Badezimmer war makellos, hell und schön, obwohl es unmöglich war, den Boden trocken zu halten, da die Dusche mit in der Badewanne war. Das Frühstücksbüfett war hervorragend mit einer großen Auswahl an Brötchen, hausgemachter Marmelade und vielen Sorten Fisch, Wurst und sogar einer Früchtesuppe. Das Personal war hervorragend - jung, enthusiastisch und hilfsbereit. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt um einen Tag verlängert als wir feststellten, dass das Hotel einen großen Teil an unserer wunderbaren Zeit in Helsinki ausmachte. Ich würde nur noch nach Helsinki reisen wenn ich wieder in diesem Hotel unterkommen dürfte.
Ultracool, gute Lage
Verbrachte während einer Geschäftsreise eine Woche im Klaus K. Sehr cooles Zimmer (funky, stilvoll, tolles Bett mit großen weicher Decke, LCD-Fernseher, Wireless Lan usw.). Es gibt dort auch eine trendige Bar wo auch die Einheimischen und alle internationalen Gäste, die meisten schienen Geschäfte mit Nokia zu machen, einkehren und eine gutes italienisches Restaurant mit sehr hübschen Kellnerinnen. Kann es nur empfehlen.
A perfect stay in Helsinki
Klaus K met all our hopes. The location is great, central but quiet. Service was very friendly. Room was comfortable (envy plus) with street view at only 130E (including a generous and healthy breakfast) which must be a bargain for the quality and compared to other Helsinki great hotels such as the Kamp which starts around 300E. Three restaurants offer different themes for every taste including a pretty good selection of wine, spirits, coctails and beers. Then there is the design which is very beautiful - our favorite was the white bar. We didn´t try the spa but the brochure was tempting to say the least. A definite choice for another stay in Helsinki.
Perfect for a quick visit, not so good for a long stay
The Klaus K is a modern design hotel with an amazingly friendly and helpful staff. The lobby has several sitting areas all with its own hyper designed theme. Sometimes its a bit over done but each is lovely so after a while you don't notice. I stayed in the Envy Suite with my boyfriend while in Helsinki for a conference. It's a spacious room with a comfortable king-size bed and a small sitting area, suitable for working. While the styling and decor was modern and egdy, the renovation seems to still be "in progress". The so called "closet" is a 12 inch bar behind a curtain and there was no dresser, no set of drawers, not even a hook to hang a coat or towel on! After a few days our room looked like our suitcases had exploded because there was no place to put anything away. I hope they work on that in the future.
There are several restaurants in the hotel including a really good italian restaurant on the ground floor. We didn't eat at the more formal Finnish restaurant that shares the hotel lobby but it also serves the breakfast buffet, included in our room rate, which was filled with fresh and healthy traditional Finnish options. The more casual pizza/burger place called Filmatatti is just average. A trendy club downstairs always seemed lively. The hotel is centrally located and a great comfortable place to escape after a day of sight-seeing.
Ultra cool, good location
Stayed at the Klaus K last week on business, very cool room (funky styline, great bed with big fluffy white duvets, LCD widescreen, wifi etc.)
They also have a trendy bar which locals go to as well as all the international travellers, most of whom seem to be over on business with Nokia, and a good Italian restaurant with v. pretty waitresses!
Couldn't be better
We loved our experience in this "design" hotel located in the smart Bulevardi and adjacent to the design district of Helsinki. Convenient to everything - trams outside the front door and a 10 minute walk to the railway station. The foyer says it all - smart, hip and vibrant with a reception desk shaped like an egg.
We had an "Envy" room on the 5th floor facing the street and individually decorated in shades of brown, gold and blue. The L shaped room with sitting area was large and the the bed was extremely comfortable. The room was well appointed with interesting lighting, bar fridge, plasma screen and table. It worked well. The bathroom was spotless, bright and attractive although it was impossible to keep the floor dry when having a shower which was situated over the bath.
The breakfast buffet was outstanding with a variety of freshly baked breads, home made preserves and different selections of fish, meats and even a fruit soup.
I found all the staff outstanding - young, enthusiastic and helpful. We extended our 3 day stay to 4 and recognised that this hotel played a big part in our enjoyable stay in Helsinki.
I wouldn't come to Helsinki unless I could stay here again!
Great alternative in Helsinki
We stayed for 3 nights in one of the "Mythical" rooms on the second floor. The room was fairly small (approx. 20 square metres), as so often in boutique hotels, but the furnishings were of a very high standard. Design-wise the room had a slight retro and masculine feel to it (brown, grey and orange(!!) dominated the walls). The bed was very comfortable, but could have been slightly larger, though the size of the room does of course limit the potential size of the bed. The bathroom was very clean and modern, but the open-style shower means that the bathroom floor gets wet each time you have a shower. Also, there was no bath in the room which would have been nice following a days sightseeing.
A note for business visitors: there is no proper desk in the room if that is required for work.
The public spaces of the hotel are very impressive and beautifully designed. The Ilmatar restaurant serves a great breakfast and the Ahjo bar/club appears very trendy and welcoming. We did not have an opportunity to make use of the spa facilities, but the bath room products were from the "Helsinki dayspa" and are to be recommended.
The Klaus K is excellently located within walking distance of great shopping, restaurants and many sights. All in all, I would recommend staying at the Klaus K hotel if you are looking for a high-design experience in Helsinki. I would definitely stay at the hotel again, but would consider staying at one of the larger "Desire" or "Envy" rooms next time.
A true design hotel
I may sound a patriotic Finn now, but if you are into design like me and my husband, this newly renovated hotel is a must: very stylish and unique in Helsinki, even in the world, I'd say. The rooms are spacious and designed to give you something extra compared with typical hotel rooms: from bed linens to flat-TV to toilet utilities every item has this little extra touch of Finnish design. Our room with windows facing inside the block was extremely quiet, but the view was a bit dull (walls of the neighbouring building). And that's almost the only negative thing to say.
The staff was very friendly and they even had "a girl piccolo" who led us to the room - very rare in 4-star Finnish hotels. Because we arrived at 10 a.m. we of course thought we'd just leave our luggage and come back after 2 p.m. to check-in, but surprisingly they said it was ok to check in at that time of the morning already.
They have a couple of quality restaurants in the hotel, and a tiny night club, too, but we only had our superb breakfast there. It included e.g. fresh coffee or tea, croissants and marmalade but also a selection of Finnish cheeses, warm buns, oven-baked barley porridge with jam and milk (delicious!), yoghurt and muesli served in a glass, fruit etc. Sorry, no eggs and bacon ;-)
Unfortunately there´s no sauna (!), but Helsinki Day Spa situated next to the hotel offers that and much more.
The location on Bulevardi street is great, only 400 mteters from the main railway station but on the so-called "sophisticated area" of Helsinki. Lots of shops, museums and even the sea is in the walking distance.
If you are still undecided whether to choose Klaus K or a five-star Hotel Kämp: in Finland do as the Finns do!
