I decided to try out this former county prison as I was taking the Viking boat to Tallinn in the morning and the terminal is within a short walking distance. Booked a junior suite with a sauna. It was by no means even a junior suite but at max a deluxe room. I understand that they need to work with the hardware they have but they should not misclassify rooms as suites. The neighborhood is good and within short walking distance from the city center. May return when I don't need a suite.

今はMarriott系のTribute Portfolioブランドになっているようです。 フロントもレストランもスタッフの方々がみんな明るくて、テキパキと優しく案内してくれました。 特に豪華な設備も食事もないですが、必要なものは揃っており、快適に過ごせました。 市街地からは離れていますが、タクシーとトラムで移動すれば特に問題なく、静かに過ごすにはいいと思います。 ウスペンスキー寺院まではお散歩できる距離です。 Staff are friendly & prompt response. No such luxury facility or restaurant but well cleaned & everything is enough to stay comfortable & quiet. It’s located bit far from the central station but easy to access with taxis & trams. Good distance for walking to Uspenski Cathedral.

Great hotel, easy check-in, super comfy beds! Convenient location not in the middle of the noise, so a great place if you're looking for something a bit out of the way but still within walking distance from great attractions! Old prison turned hotel, so a bit creepy but very on brand for Scandinavian humor. :) Cute place.

I stayed here for a week while visiting my daughter, who was studying in Helsinki for a semester. Hotel was exceptional. The rooms were very large. Because you are staying in the actual old prison cells, the hotel is dead quiet. Restaurant was far above average. Location is very accessible by Tram 4 right out the hotel front door. You do not need a car or taxi to get around. Just download the Helsinki Transit app. There is so much character in this place. Wow!

Dear mikecF3745XX, you had a long sentence! Due to the history, the walls here are pretty thick, so I am happy you liked the quietness. It's great to share your greetings with my staff. It seems you enjoyed Helsinki overall. Welcome back! With kind regards, Sami Joutsenvuo Chief Concierge Hotel Katajanokka

I stayed at Hotel Katajanokka for two nights. I had arrived on the Viking Line ship that arrived at 10:10 and was happy they were able to accommodate me early that day. Very friendly and helpful staff. They sell the Helsinki card which allowed me to start my sightseeing faster too! The room was very spacious and comfortable for a twin room by European standards. The closet was big, the bed was comfortable, and there were plenty of lighting options. The sides of the tub are a bit high but I bet it would be awesome to soak in! Breakfast was good with many options and in a nice setting. The location is very convenient to the Viking Line terminal, less than ten minutes walking. It’s about ten minutes walking to the city or you can take the #4 tram which conveniently has a stop
