Imagine my surprise when I checked in to learn it is a restored prison - A restoration really well done. My room was comfortable and well appointed. Loved the heated floors in the bathroom. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Very good quality hotel in old prison. We travelled with a dog and in the room there was presents for it and a bowl. Nice design of common area and inside the room. Tasty food in restaurant (with nice interior as well). Very nice staff.

A thoughtful experience. Confortable, practical, cosy and very gentle service. Furthermore you walk around these enormous corridors and think how it must have been when it was a prison. The gym is small but functional and the original cells kept are worth a visit

Dear Giuliotoscani, Thank you for your review. As mentioned before, I am happy the gym was still enjoyable despite the small size, as during the prison time it was outside :D More than that I am happy that the service here was good, it is something I am glad to share with my staff! I hope to see you hear again at some point. Happy 2020! With kind regards, Sami Joutsenvuo Chief Concierge Hotel Katajanokka

We stayed on a one night stop over on our way to Lapland for our honeymoon. The staff was courteous and very helpful. We enjoyed walking around and learning about the prison. The rooms are unique and a little small but they work for what we needed.

A former prison converted into a wonderful hotel. It was my first experience of this kind. The rooms are cosy. Windows cannot be opened but A/C works perfect. Disabled people may face challenges with the shower. Breakfast was not included in the room rate and came with an extra EUR 20. However, the breakfast buffet was excellent.

Dear cafeaulait69, Thank you for your review. I am happy you liked this extraordinary experience here inside of these thick walls. The windows actually can be opened, but for safety reasons by the staff only. We are happy to help with opening the windows. We also have rooms for disabled, where there are i.e. easy access to the shower. I hope you enjoyed Helsinki overall. Happy New Year! With kind regards, Sami Joutsenvuo Chief Concierge Hotel Katajanokka
