Very atmospheric place. This hotel is in the historic former prison in beautiful and quite part of Helsinki Katajanokka. Comfortable bed and pillows, our room had a bath. Tasty breakfast with a big food variety
We stayed in early October and it was too cold in our room
Hotel in a unique style and interior design.
Since this was a former prison the windows are rather small and have no view.
Wonderful Breakfast Great location. Walking distance to town, historical sites, old market and boat trips.
Not exactly in the city center
Large rooms and bathrooms, staff were friendly, tram right in front, historically interesting, and the restaurant was good.
Minor thing but they didn't restock our mini bar 2 nights in a row, and the second night just left dirty wine glasses in the room.
Hotel Katajanokka is a unique lifestyle hotel, renovated with loving care into the historic premises of former Helsinki county prison. Inside the red brick walls you will find a magic world of contrasts – with serene comfort, stylish design and a hint of Nordic luxury.
