Katajanokka is easily overlooked, as it does not advertise itself very effectively and is also off to one side of the walking routes of most tourists. Nevertheless, it has several interesting features, buildings and the ever-close harbour precinct. The north harbour area, to the side...More

Tram 4 goes here and it is definitely worth a ride around. Some super old buildings. We stayed at the prison here but I am sure you can just walk in and have a look even if you are not staying, quite fascinating.

The hotel is clean and modern. It has a history to learn from while staying. We were here in the winter, not much in the close surroundings, however, a short drive to many things. I would definitely recommend this hotel, free breakfast, and beautiful sights!

Not just a usual hotel experience - much more exciting. Top service from all the staff. The hotel has kept the old prison style while still being able to make the surroundings cosy. The rooms are small, but you would expect this from old cells....More

We really enjoyed our stay in this boutique hotel, that has been converted from an old prison. The staff were great, there is a team stop just out the front and it’s and easy walk to the waterfront and into town.
