      About Your Stay
      Klaus K

      Located in the late 19th-century Rake building, the hotel Klaus K is inspired by Finland's national epic, the Kalevala, with each of the 137 playful guestrooms boasting a theme that illustrates the Kalevala's primary emotional elements: desire, passion, mysticism, and envy. Yet at the same time, this Helsinki hotel aspires to go even further, to "take the hotel out of the hotel," creating an ultra-designed lifestyle experience where contrasts abound, such as the Renaissance-inspired Rake Sali ballroom. This inspiration is expressed on an intimate—indeed, fun-loving—human scale throughout the space. The hotel also has strikingly unique restaurants. For example Toscanini serves delicious dishes originating from Tuscany and exemplifies the level of high-minded detail that goes into the Klaus K—its interior is inspired by the Finnish national painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela, who spent time in Florence while studying the technique to paint frescos.

      Originally the Klaus Kurki hotel, a Helsinki landmark for many years, the rechristened Klaus K has been transformed into a welcoming and storied world of brick and Nordic majesty, thanks to the vision of renowned Finnish architects SARC Group. The lead architects of the project, Antti-Matti Siikala and Sarlotta Narjos, have created some of Finland’s foremost modern architectural projects including the Sanoma Talo and the city’s groundbreaking Kone Building. But for Klaus K they went further, creating a high-minded canvas of contrast and wonder, a place where each room unfolds itself like the eagerly-turned pages of a national epic.

      What designer wouldn’t love the charge that comes from being asked to create rooms that represent desire, passion, mysticism, or envy? The folks at Stylt Trampoli certainly rose to the challenge at Klaus K with walls that sparkle, floors that beguile, and spaces that invoke grand emotions.

      Mia Cederberg-Skvorc & Marc Skvorc

      American-born hotelier Marc Skvorc and his Finnish wife Mia are living their dream in Helsinki with the Klaus K. The hotel embraces both style and story and has become one of the crowning jewels of the Design District Helsinki. Formerly a German girls school, the building belonged to Mia’s family before the Skvorcs transformed it into Helsinki's first design hotel. In addition to his exploits as a leading hotelier, Marc Skvorc is also involved with several collaborative outreach projects that work to revive the hospitality and arts sectors of Finland’s capital.
