    • Group of friends
      10.0

      I liked the polite staff, the wonderful breakfast, the location of the hotel so close to the centre, the feeling that we stayed in a former prison, the fully equipped room, the value/money relationship

      I think that the wireless internet should cover somehow the rooms but you can always have an ethernet cable.

    • Family with children

      The location is perfect, the tram stop right in front is a huge plus, and the history of the old jail is really neat!

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      The location was good, staff was nice and helpful, the room was quiet which was surprising as it was in the 1st floor. The breakfast was great. Being an old prison, the hotel had a nice feel into it, not just your usual boring hotel.

      There was nothing I didn't like about this hotel.

      interesting interior, excellent staff, good location

    • Couple

      Location: a short walk to the Kauppatori and the Esplanadis. A tram stops right at the gate. A very quiet place. Rooms: clean, quiet, spacious (standard queen size), all facilities in order. Staff: lovely and helpful. Price: look for low-season discounts. You may find a bargain for 4-stars quality.

    • Family with children
      10.0

      The hotel was excellent and very family friendly. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast superb, rooms lovely and location good with south harbour nearby and tram #4 conveniently outside. Highly recommended.

    • Couple
      9.6

      The hotel is on the edge of the city, literally 5 minutes walk to the Esplionade which is the main cool street of Helsinki. However, the tram which runs every ten minutes stops outside, so you can even miss the 5 minute walk if feeling lazy. Great bar 2 minutes from the hotel called Poseidon. The hotel itself is immaculate with great rooms and a great breakfast. Friendly helpful staff, in a converted jail which shouldn't work as a hotel, but does with bells on!

      very good hotel, all the following disadvantages for breakfast / room / Wi-Fi bullshit, everything is fine

      expensive parking & mini-bar

      My boyfriend and I spent Easter at Katajanokka and we absolutely loved it! Such a novelty staying in a converted prison and we loved how they kept it authentic but luxurious. The breakfast was lovely and location a nice easy walk into town but very quiet near the hotel which was great.

    • Older travelers

      Unique character of the hotel, good breakfast, spacious room, good price

      Bath was a bit small; occasionally bad smell from sewage in bathroom

      Very impressive hotel. He will amaze you. But you'll find peace, comfort and quietness. Very nice bathrooms. Wonderful breakfast place and what is served to him. Delicate crispy croissants...

    • Couple

      Very interesting decision to make hotel in the prison. Great idea. Great bathroom, comfortable bed, tea, coffee and chocolate in the room. Good breakfast, you could take cappuccino or latte.

      There are no free WiFi in the hotel. Parking space is too small and cost additional money. Approx. 20 eur/day

    • Couple
      7.0

      The hotel was unique - a converted prison. Very clean and a nice design. Great breakfast too and well equipped gym. Not too far from town but I wouldn't want to be any further. Nice quiet rooms and friendly staff. I went with three others and we all enjoyed it there.

      The sauna is really disappointing - 20 euros to use it during the week and restricted hours at weekends.
