Hotel Katajanokka or as it is easier to type into Google, the prison hotel. This place got it’s name from (obviously)being an old prison converted to a hotel. The aesthetic is definitely present.
From my room you could view the wall surrounding the hotel. It was the most comfortable prison I could imagine.
I have to say I loved this place. The look was great and as far as nicer hotels in Helsinki it was one of the more affordable ones at about 100 Euro per night for a single room in a comfy “cell.”
The best part of this place is definitely the restaurant in the basement, it was one of the best meals I ate on the trip. So good I ordered two plates. Breakfast was also complimentary and equally delicious.
This hotels location is also very convenient. Very close to the main pier area and Uspenski Cathedral. Though Helsinki is a very walkable city I’d say don’t worry about location too terribly.
Overall, a great hotel experience and definitely the favorite spot I stayed in on that trip.
