“Cool Design Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2013

Contrary to some of the other reviews this is the biggest hotel room I have ever stayed in! Comparable to NYC. I think we stayed in Envy Plus. The room was really great, comfortable bed, amazing shower, big tv, gorgeous windows, robes, sofas, mini bar etc. Great design feel to it.

There was a great array of delights at breakfast, sweet, savory, continental, traditional. Just about whatever you wanted. We also tried the Italian restaurant inside which was delicious. Make sure you book in advance to secure a good table - we had problems with how "intimate" we were with the couples of either side and asked to move. The food and interior is lovely though but by no means cheap. The bar is also very lively at the weekend and was great fun.

We went around Christmas time so the reception area was beautifully decorated and had these cinnamon candles that smelled so good I had to go and buy one! Lots of lovely touches and well thought out design. A very cool hotel with an excellent central location. Would recommend to anyone.

We only spent 3 nights in Helskini which was not long enough to explore the exciting city, but was quite long enough for our bank balance!

Room Tip: Choose a "plus" room if you are concerned about the size of the room - ours did not disapp...

When in Helsinki I always stay at the Klaus K. Cool design, nice Italian restaurant and nice rooms. Drop the smallest rooms as they are..well small, but book a bigger room and enjoy. Great location centrally in Helsinki and with some nice restaurants and shops within short walking distance.

Room Tip: Don't book the standard rooms as they are very small.

The breakfast is fantastic! :) I would stay there just to eat a nice breakfast. It is not overwhelmingly large, but very inviting just a little bit of everything you want at a Scandinavian breakfast. The finnish barley porridge is a great classic served up in the classic Iittala Sarpaneva cast iron pot.

Th hotel is a harmonious blend of hip design and coziness.

Hotel definately has good location in the city. The wedding service which we took part a guests was just perfect.

Hotel corridors remind a narrow maze. The corridor floor is never really a flat level but rather tilted to some direction. These two things together make you feel like you are on a rocking boat or drunk even when you haven't had a drink.

Hotel rooms are quite too small and cramped for my pleasure, but it's old building carrying the past sins on her back. It is a listed building for National Board of Antiquities so major renewal overhaul would not have been acceptable.

Still good value for the money, so enjoy your stay.

The hotel is very good located in the city center. The staff at the front office is very friendly and helpful. The lobby and bar is very cosy designed and the staff is attentive. The standard rooms are very small and if you travel with a partner they are very small and you have problems to place you luggage or have to climb over them on the way to the bathroom. So better book a larger room. The design of the rooms is very innovative and well equipped. You sleep good in the bed. The breakfast was ok and also the restaurant ( Italian). In the same building are two more very nice restaurants.

Room Tip: If you travel with a partner do not book the standard room ( mini ) Take a larger room.

Cool design but I prefer rest well in a most confortable bed. No enough space at the room for laptop work. The TV was in a wrong location. Bar & Restaurant quite expensive in terms of the quality that they offer. Impossible to understand their spa policies

Stayed for 1 night in Helsinki as part of a short work trip. Klaus K is a good value design hotel in a great location. Rooms were well equipped (loved the toiletries in the bathroom) and my room was lovely and quiet. Renovations meant that breakfast was in one of the large ballrooms/meeting rooms which was a bit dark and sterile, but the food was delicious and they were about to re-open the new breakfast/reception area.

Reception staff were very helpful and friendly.

Didn't get a chance to experience the restaurants, spa or gym.

Only thing I would change is having kettles in each room as standard (you could get one on request but I arrived late and couldn't muster the energy!) and better pillows in the room (personal choice, am sure lots of people found them lovely!)
