TripAdvisor traveller rating  

You’ll find the beautiful Clarion Collection Hotel Katajanokka within these red brick walls that once housed Helsinki County Prison. This elegant boutique hotel has recently undergone a full renovation to catapult it into the modern era while paying homage to its interesting history. Guests can look forward to comfortable accommodation, stylish interior design, a unique atmosphere and a good dose of Nordic luxury!

More than a hotel

Clarion Collection Hotel Katajanokka is more than just a hotel and – it’s a lifestyle! Good service and incredible attention to detail come from the heart. Our dedicated staff will happily attend to your specific needs to ensure you have a wonderful stay here at the hotel.  

Renovation of a historic building

The oldest part of Clarion Collection Hotel Katajanokka dates back to 1837 and the main building was constructed in 1888. Before finally closing in 2002, the building served as a county jail and remand prison.

Following a complete reconstruction, the hotel opened its doors to the public in 2007. Many parts are listed – the central corridor, the outer brick wall and the high wall that surrounds the park – and they serve as a reminder of the building’s long and interesting history. In 2017, the hotel underwent another renovation to create a modern boutique hotel with stylish décor and exceptional service with a truly unique atmosphere!

Fun & stylish accommodation

Former cells have been transformed into comfortable hotel rooms with functional and elegant interiors. The rooms are specifically designed to provide quiet and relaxing accommodation, and the thick brick walls, high ceilings and triple glazed windows will help ensure you have a great night’s sleep during your stay! You’ll be able to disappear from the hustle and bustle of busy city life here.

Linnankellari Restaurant

The Linnankellari Restaurant is well worth a visit if you enjoy simple and refined Nordic cuisine. The restaurant is located in the hotel’s basement and welcomes guests from early until late. During the summer months, you can enjoy freshly barbequed food in the inner courtyard. We can also arrange events and host groups of people looking for somewhere to enjoy special meal. Welcome!
