Hotel Katajanokka, Helsinki
great hotel in old prison, very nicely done. about a 15 minute walk from the main tourist area. clean rooms and friendly staff. i would stay there again and recommend it.
kurt, us2 night trip
Hotel Katajanokka, Helsinki
Outstanding and unique
We chose it for its history but we would return for the quality of service, the outstanding location (easy walk to major tourist sites without being in an area that felt tourist; convenient tram to everywhere else) the comfort and size of the room, the breakfast, etc.
Vicki, us3 night trip
Hotel Katajanokka, Helsinki
Had a great time, really big breakfast buffet with lots of choices, very accomodating service, beautifully renovated building with lots of history. Close to viking lines cruises, and tram/metro right outside the building, 4min trip in to city center. Definitely recommend this hotel!!

Great Place to Stay in Helsinki
The former prison makes a wonderful hotel. The only problem I had was getting the temperature right in my room.
John E, us1 night trip
Hotel Katajanokka, Helsinki
Highly recommended!
It's a hotel that is quite unique which was once a prison. We enjoyed our stay, it was clean, spacious, and beautiful.
