This hotel is conveniently located near the Viking Terminal. There was a good offer for a Superior room. 127 euros flexible rate including breakfast. This time I asked beforehand to get a room from the old jail wing that dates back to 1888. Last time we stayed in the newer side wing. These jail rooms have more character. There was even a window in the bathroom. The only complaint is the bread served at breakfast. The bread rolls were very dry, both inside and out. Otherwise, the food selection was good.

Dear Mikael F, Thank you for your review. I am very happy that you had a nice stay here, this time in the old cell blocks. That side of the prison is actually the newer one, built in 1888. The side you have stayed earlier has been built 1834. I am happy you liked your room. Nowadays it is ok to return. Enjoy the autumn. With kind regards, Sami Joutsenvuo Head Concierge Hotel Katajanokka, a Tribute Portfolio

Of course the history of the building is interesting. But more important is how the developers, architects and designers have made the magic and have created beautiful atmosphere. Pretty small place (100 and some rooms), warm reception and staff. Nice breakfast. Katajannokka is overall quiet and cozy neighborhood. One of the best 4* places I have been!

Old prison converted into boutique hotel, the yes if want to escape the ordinary this is the place to stay. Staff was very courteous knowing that it's my daughter's birthday they upgraded my room. They did allowed us early check in too. The property is very interesting, they have still kept 2 original cells in their actual condition to let visitors know the history. Very interesting collection of photographs too at the stairs. The restaurant really looked very cozy and nice though didn't tried their food. Tram no 4 from straight away goes on the gate of the hotel. Harbour is just on a walking distance so very nice location. Good luck to team Hotel Katanjokka 👍

Wonderful hotel that was an old prison. The renovation is very modern and sleek yet well preserved with its rich yet haunting history. The hotel staff was great, especially the head of concierge, Sami. I learned so much about the prison and Helsinki. The room was extremely comfortable, the hotel was very quiet and the location is in a cute quarter of Katajanokka. The hotel is easy to get to by public transit and Uber. There’s a restaurant on premise that serves a great hotel breakfast and a fantastic dinner. It’s a small walking distance to the middle of town. There’s also a convenient bus that runs frequently and its right outside the hotel. A walking trail with a view of the breakers and the sea is also nearby and a perfect way to get in a workout. Everything about this hotel
