We reserved a deluxe room with the fantastic "Love Kämp" promotion for 259€/couple that included rose petal baths each day, a welcoming bottle of champagne, and fantastic room service full breakfast every morning. Great concierge service never tired of obtaining for us a restaurant reservation when most were already booked or closed on Sunday or Monday. They even brought a book to the room containing a section on each of the new "foodie" spots. Air conditioned. Windows do open. Bed and pillows very comfortable. Fantastic large bathroom with hand spray at bath, shower, and toilet. Downside: extremely expensive internet service, although they did comp ours due to having to wait for our room to become available. Great location right on the Esplanade. Do recommend and would return.

This is a nice hotel well located in the centre for business meetings, the rooms are nice and spacious. The hotel staff we friendly and helpful, it’s a little bit expensive but most definitely the nicest Hotel in Helsinki.

I had a breakfast meeting the following day and was a little disappointed with the service.

As a frequent traveler, I used spg points for the Hotel Kamp, so a great deal . I did check out prices, and it was a bit pricey in comparison ( 30 Euros for breakfast), but the rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The historic Hotel Kamp is in an EXCELLENT location, beautiful rooms, lovely spa and fitness center and very helpful staff.

The hotel is centrally located and in that respect, it is great if you are in town for multiple meetings. But a warning about their restaurant. It seems they tend to forget that you ordered. This has happened to me twice now (once about a year ago, the second time just today). You sit there for 30 minutes like an idiot and then when you ask them about it they faint surprise that the food has not been served, when in fact I suspect they simply forgot to file the order. Whatever the case for the tardiness, this is very frustrating, especially when you arrive late in the evening and hope to catch a quick bite before bed.

Passing thru Helsinki and stayed at the Hotel Kamp. My travel agent recommended this hotel as being well located and having nice rooms. I felt that the rooms were not small and that they were more like an American Hotel in size than the typical European Hotel. The group that I was traveling with were all very happy with the accommodations. All of us travel all over the world and stay in the nicest hotels. This is not a 5 star property but one that could achieve that status with improvements to reception and concierge services. I would have no apprehensions of staying here again.

Have stayed here many times. Very consistent service & quality. The rooms are all very comfortable with good bedding and pillows. The bathrooms are very elegant. The location is excellent as you can walk right out on to the esplanade. Great gym with all Cybex equipment.

Room Tip: Chose a room facing the Esplanade. The usual rules apply, higher up is better.

In terms of location it is hard to beat the Kamp - just seconds from the narrow Esplanade park that runs up from the central port, ferries, central market and on each side of the Esplandi (pohjoisesplanadi - North Esplanade and etaläesplanadi - South Esplanade) there are the luxury shops and a nice bar in the middle of the park. Helsinki is a very nice city and this hotel is right in the centre of the nicest part. Room was a good size, backing onto the inside of a city block and so quiet, well fitted decorated, and a good size bathroom with both shower and separate bath - no cheating on space. Breakfast was a buffet and good, but not an outstanding selection, but at Euro 29 per person, quite expensive for a buffet.
The one major gripe that I might seem to be on a small point but it is over internet access. In a country that is home to a major mobile manufacturer and a pretty technologically advanced society one would expect access to Wi-Fi etc as standard. Now on parts of the metro system ( which is only a small system) I got free access to a Wi-Fi called metro which I assume was a transport sponsored network; free Wi-Fi access at the airport, a reasonable number of businesses around Helsinki offer free Wi-Fi access including a small coffee kiosk, not much larger than a phone booth, we came across on the foreshore when stopping for a rest and a coffee. Given all this the hotel charge for Wi-Fi at Euro 7 per hour or Euro 19 per day just seemed inexplicable. Now you might say that given the room cost for a hotel like this what am I worried about an extra Euro 19 for Wi-Fi (but this is per day), or that if there is free Wi-Fi nearby what is the big deal - fair point to a degree but equally given a hotel of this standard and room cost to be asked to pay Euro 19 per day for what is a simple and becoming universal service just left me with a sour taste in my mouth - a matter of principle. I would have expected this basic modern service to just be standard.
In summary, great location, nice hotel, but I left with the feeling that no opportunity to relieve me of every Euro cent possible had been missed and that took the edge off the stay a bit. Pity really, because the other things the hotel has going for it are good.
