“In the heart of Helsinki”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

I stayed here in July 2013. The location was superb, the room was big and well equipped. Loved the bathroom, it was beautiful and clean. However the air conditioner was a little cold and humid, not good for my throat.

Breakfast was quite nice, not just the usual greasy 'hotel-stuff'. The lobby was quite small. The corridors were beautifully furnished and I felt safe here. However the staff weren't very friendly, there were some celebrities staying there at the same time, so that may be why they treated us 'nobodies' like air.

I think it was a bit pricey for Helsinki, but well, location costs.

Spent a night in the deluxe king size room and the whole experience from check-in till check out was superb. The decor was excellent, the room luxurious, the sound proofing and privacy without par. Breakfast was tasty, and full of variety. Definitely my choice every time I need to stay in helsinki.

We loved this hotel. It was truly a 5 star. The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. The rooms were very spacious and well furnished. It was conveniently located to the main sites, marina and an easy walk to the train station. We would not hesitate to stay here again when we return to this charming city.

I just completed a 4-night stay in Helsinki, and I stayed at Hotel Kamp. I loved it. The hotel property itself is quite good. The hotel has old-school grand charm, the rooms are good and big, the bathrooms are fantastic, the WiFi is reliable and speedy, the gym is fantastic, and the bar is an amazing place to get a drink or two and hang out. (The bar is very pricey, but my experience suggested that lots of restaurants and bars in Helsinki are expensive. At the Hotel Kamp bar, you at least get very high quality for your euro.) Standing alone, these attributes would probably lead me to give Hotel Kamp a 4 or 4.5 rating. What puts them up at 5 stars, however, was the staff. The staff at the front desk was incredibly helpful. They always had time for me, they were friendly and polite, they gave me countless reliable opinions on restaurants and sights to see, and they came through for me when I was in a crunch. In particular, I had a last-minute surprise when I was packing for the airport and my departure. When I got on-line to do my check-in, I learned that there was a Finnair strike, and that my flight was cancelled. It was also impossible to get through to Finnair. The Hotel Kamp helped me through this pretty seamlessly. They were able to give me an extra night at a very fair rate, and they gave great advice about how to handle the Finnair situation. I loved my stay at Hotel Kamp. One other thing: make sure to go the cafe Fazer across the street. Go more than once!

I stayed here for a business trip and thought the room and service was excellent. I arrived late in the evening found the staff to be very welcoming. The room itself was very comfortable with all the usual bells and whistles. The hotel bar has a nice selection of drinks and the atmosphere is very relaxing. I stayed for breakfast the next day and choice of items were great. It'd definitely stay here again in the future/

This hotel is gorgeous - everything is well thought of and services are excellent. The hotel breathes the heritage of the time when an old bank was still located in this building, especially the stairs and bar area. The location is perfect, next to shops, bars, restaurants and clubs. There are rooms in the new and the old part of the hotel. A colleague of mine who has been here before got an upgrade to a room/suite in the old part: it's really nice. Another one stayed in the Mannerheim suite, it's one of the best places he ever spend a night. The new part is good too but less impressive: still spacious rooms, marble bathroom with music and a rubber duck in the hot tub, small desk/office area and good climate control. Breakfast is splendid, especially the fish. Next door (if it's rains they let you walk inside) is a perfect teppanyaki restaurant. Only thing that is annoying is that the climate in the hotel is on elderly temperature (I would not be surprised if it is set on 25oC), EVEN in the gym! It's ok for the spa area, but it's ridiculous when you want to work out. Asked both days if they can turn the heating down: it's not possible, according to the lovely ladies there. Too bad, otherwise this hotel would get five stars in this review. Note: If you want to stay Kämp location, but you don't like its classy style and classy price tag, try the GLO Hotel next door. I heard it is good too, with a more lounge atmosphere - I'd probably consider this if I would visit Helsinky privately.

I stayed here for one night while on a business trip.

I was quite stunned by the facilities at this hotel and for the first time felt that finally a European hotel was living up to the benchmarkes set by their Asia peers. The lobby by itself is small and cozy. The front desk and the concierge are very helpful and courtious with some great recommendations for dinner places, trips etc,

The rooms are simply excellent. The room size is BIG. Very well equipped with all the latest facilities and amenities. Its very stylishly done up. The barthrooms are HUGE, with a seperate tub and shower area. I was very tempted to try out the tub as they had some interesting amenities and toileteries for luxury. The room is very well lit and has so much of free space to move around. The sleep quality is fantastic, very luxurious.

The location of the hotel is bang in centre of the city, just a short walk away from all the attractions, offices and the harbour.

The breakfast at the hotel is interesting and well laid out. It has a nice sitiing place just facing the street that makes it very beautiful.

all in all, this is a great place to stay. Its amazing to doscover such as place in Europe.
