A unique hotel where chic design, uncompromised comfort and personal service meet in a historic former prison setting – a short walk from the city.
A modern hotel with a story
Hotel Katajanokka is a privately owned lifestyle hotel, renovated with loving care into the historic premises of former Helsinki county prison. Inside the red brick walls you will find a magical world of contrasts – with serene comfort, stylish design and a hint of Nordic luxury.
The rooms at Hotel Katajanokka are carefully reconstructed from original cell blocks, with design and decor that makes no compromises on functionality and comfort. Purpose-built for privacy and peace, the metre-thick brick walls make the rooms very quiet, ensuring a good night’s sleep. All our room rates include the use of Wi-Fi, free use of our 24-hour gym and a complimentary weekend sauna.
