Klaus K is the coolest hotel in Helsinki

A hotel in the making. I made a real back stage tour with Marc Skvorc, the GM of Klaus K, the Bobcat was busy opening the atrium.

The result is here. Stark contrast now a really interesting piece of architecture.

Finland got its first design hotel on Tuesday when the Klaus K hotel opened their doors to the public. Out of sure coincidence I was on a business trip and heard about the opening of the hotel. I have followed the re-make of Klaus Kurki to Klaus K as the manager is the former general manager of the very famous design hotel W at Union Square in New York. Marc has a great attention to detail and as a foreigner in Finland he can appriciate the beauty in Finnish design Finns often take for granted. My experience at the hotel was very good. The bed which Marc had raved about was very comfortable. I would have liked a down duvet like in Westin hotels Heavenly Beds. I was intrigued with the bathtub structure as they had moved the bathtub out of the wall with half a tile. This caused the water to flow down on the floor. There was drainedge but I am sceptical that this solution will work in the longrun. The service was great and friendly, unfortunately I arrived late and directly had a conference call so I had no chance to test the bar. Maybe next time. So if you want a cool experience in Helsinki check in at Klaus K. Congratulations to the team. You have worked hard to make this reality, I wish you all success, see you again.

At a later stage I hope to sample the food at the restuarants at Klaus K, but that will be another story...
