Check in to a Scandinavian style and design at this history-inspired hotel in the center of the Finnish capital of Helsinki. The hotel takes its name (and design cues) from the Finnish national epic poem and saga The Kalevala, written by Elias Lönnrot in 1835. Starting with the country's mythological creation story, where the world emerged from seven eggs, the egg shape is repeated throughout the hotel and is most prominently featured in the gleaming white check-in desk with a halo of antler-like artwork crowning it from above and a Sky Suite with an egg-shaped bed. Firmly grounded in Finnish heritage and style, guests of Klaus K Hotel can:
- Stay in a Sky Suite with your own private balcony overlooking the boulevards of Helsinki
- Enjoy traditional Tuscan cuisine and Italian wines at Restaurant Toscanini
- End your evening with a nightcap and live music at Klaus K Bar & Lounge
- Work out at the hotel's spacious and state-of-the-art fitness center
- Experience Green Key certified environmentally conscious hospitality
In keeping with the spirit of open-mindedness that Finland has maintained through the centuries, Klaus K Hotel is proudly inclusive and caters the LGBTQ community in a variety of ways, including special packages and membership in the We Speak Gay business community — a group of businesses dedicated to expanding inclusivity and service to LGBTQ people in Finland.

Across Klaus K Hotel's 171 rooms, the common theme — from the Passion Mini Rooms designed for solo travelers to the Sky Suites designed for luxury and space — is sumptuous Scandinavian style with natural wood accents and a color palette taken from the works of famed Finnish artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela that tell the visual story of The Kalevala.
From the single Passion Mini Rooms to double rooms, king-sized rooms, and even two-story Sky Loft rooms, Klaus K Hotel has an accommodation fit for everyone. Couples will love the larger suites on the upper floors, which feature balconies with stunning views of Helsinki. Business travelers looking for a quick overnighter will be please by the Mystical Single Room, with its interior-facing rooms that offer a quieter experience than those facing the street. Art-loving guests can opt one of the hotel's art rooms, inspired by and dedicated to Finnish artist and designers who have made their mark on the country's culture. In addition to these dedicated art rooms, there's also the Sweet Suite — the world's first hotel room devoted to everyone's favorite treat, ice cream.
All rooms feature Malin+Goetz bathroom amenities, luxury mattresses, and beautiful furnishings.
For travelers who love to plan, you can pre-order room amenities so that they'll be ready and waiting for you in your room upon arrival. Choose from cheese or fruit plates, sweets and desserts, and sparking, red, and white wines.
Whether it's an authentic Finnish breakfast buffet or an upscale rotating brunch menu complete with coffee, tea, juice, and Champagne, or a hearty bowl of authentic Italian pasta, Klaus K Hotel's food and beverage venues give you a taste of Finland and Tuscany, all in one trip.
Restaurant Toscanini – The hotel's full-service restaurants offers you a taste of Tuscany while in Scandinavia. Savor dishes such as calamari fritti with lemon aioli, risotto al Chianti, and pappardelle pasta with lamb ragout. After dinner, select a spot at the restaurant's outdoor seating area and enjoy a glass of wine and an evening of people watching to the sounds of the city's quaint tram system clicking along charming cobblestone streets.
Klaus K Bar & Lounge – In keeping with the Italian theme, Klaus K Bar & Lounge serves guests glasses of the finest Italian wines, along with cocktails, and Italian-style bar snacks such as charcuterie and vegetable antipasta, all to the beats of live DJs.
While at Klaus K Hotel, avail yourself of the property's thoroughly appointed fitness center, have a delicious dinner at Restaurant Toscanini, and sip a glass of wine at the hotel bar. For guests staying in Sky Suites, the hotel's rooftop Sky Lounge is also a great spot to have your morning coffee or afternoon aperitif.
Once you step outside the hotel, you'll find yourself in the beating heart of Helsinki. Shops, restaurants, and historic sites abound and are all easily accessible by foot, tram, or bus.
