Review of Katajanokka Hotel Helsinki Gay-friendly – Escape the Ordinary. Under this motto, hotel guests can discover a unique accommodation in a former Finnish prison on Helsinki’s island Katajanokka in a privately owned, gay-friendly lifestyle hotel. It was an interesting and exciting experience to stay in a modern and spacious hotel room in Helsinki which was in a building that was built to be the living and sleeping space for prisoners who had to serve their prison terms since the early 19th century. After all, the oldest parts of the prison date back to 1837. But the history as a county jail and pre-detention center Katajanokka with its remarkable red brick buildings ended in 2002. After a long and extensive restoration and renovation, Katajanokka transformed into a luxurious Finnish accommodation that re-opened in 2007. We were invited to test the extraordinary hotel in a prison setting paired with a luxurious and chic design and the famous kitchen of The Linnankellari restaurant with its diverse menu including meat and vegan options. Our mission was to find out what you can expect from this gay-friendly hotel in Helsinki. Enjoy our hotel review “Katajanokka Hotel Helsinki Gay-friendly” of the former Finnish prison and see the 4-star hotel in Helsinki through a couple of men‘s eyes.
