Dating as long back as 1887 when the property was first built, 179- key Hotel Kämp personifies its rich history through its architecture, furniture, art and craft.
With a turnover of 23 million euros, this 179-key Hotel Kämp is operated by the Kämp Collection Hotels. The property was originally built in 1887 at the seaport. However, by 1960s it was renovated in keeping with its old-world charm to include what was relevant with time. Further by 1999, it claimed its prowess once again with the new management and forged ahead to become an iconic property in the new era. Tuomas Liewendahl, General Manager, Hotel Kämp states, “The hotel has played a major role in the development of not only Helsinki but also the country. Over the years, the hotel has become a landmark which preserves its initial buildings with its rich craftsmanship, furnishings and works of art surrounding the beautifully carved walls from top to bottom.”
The 179 luxurious rooms include 15 suites which are exemplary with its own design concept going back in time. “We are a member of The Leading Hotels of the World and are one of the grand hotels dating back to the 1880s where you will notice the largest suites are on a lower floor. Hence, our presidential suite is on level four with a separate entrance to ensure absolute privacy. The ceilings in each room become higher as we tread on different floors. As we are part of an equity company with a keen interest in art, you will notice many great artworks throughout the property. We underwent a major refurbishment last year and now are fully operational,” explained Liewendahl.
Boasting of 11 state-of-theart meeting rooms which can cater to different events for corporate and leisure visitors, Hotel Kämp plays a key role in securing the MiCE business in the city due to its rich history and Finnish hospitality.
