A little disappointing

Review of Hotel St George
2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Apr 2024
I went with my husband for 2 days for my birthday and we had high expectations for a 5 star hotel.
The building was beautiful and room was spacious as we booked the atelier room.
The spa was a big disappointment: the staff at the entrance did not make you feel welcome and not a lot of information was given. Also the dressing room was very dusty, hair on the shower etc. The spa area did not have any therapy spots, only a small pool of 1.2 meters so you could not do a lot.
The breakfast was ok. but nothing special.

We stayed in an ateljé room with a view to the park. The room was large, the spa was great for a Friday night sauna and cold plunge. The duvets in the room are very warm, little too warm for a Finn. Special thanks to Pauli at breakfast who was so warm and welcoming.

Room tip: Remember to book a time slot, if the spa is included in your stay. You can walk to the spa in your robe and slippers :)

Centrally located near the junction of Kamppi, the Design District & the Esplanade, & just across the street from the Vanha kirkkopuisto (Old Church Park), the Hotel St. George is a wonderful home base for exploring Helsinki.

Special shout-out to the breakfast team (both kitchen & front of house); our server Maricor was especially warm, efficient & professional - either the full breakfast or a lighter meal at the adjacent St. George Bakery makes for a great start to the day!

Our only slight reservation was that the WiFi was a bit inconsistent (seemed to kick us off a few times a day, though speeds were reasonably good at ~25-40 Mbps both up & down). Otherwise, highly recommended & we hope to be back!
