  • Best Western Premier Hotel Katajanokka

    Although I haven't managed to visit this unique property yet (so am only giving it 3 stars for that reason), I can't wait to visit. This hotel became a Best Western in 2007, but it's real claim to fame is that it was once the Helsinki County Jail. Each of the 106 rooms (including three junior suites) was created from two or three prison cells.

    Not exactly the most promising brand, but the owners have done a really good job with this- reconditioning an old jail. You stay in old cells, and there's plenty of jail stuff around. Right next to the tram for easy access to center.

    This former prison is one of the most interesting places to stay in Helsinki.
