Even when you are booking luxury properties only, not every stay is a luxurious experience. Sometimes renovations are deeply needed. For example at the Hilton Helsinki Strand, where we stayed in January whenthe first renovation works began. Due to that, the pool and the gym were closed. Sadly, neither the room nor the breakfast were appealing, too. Check out our rating of the Hilton Helsinki Strand! When we booked the Hilton Helsinki… Read More

When I visited Helsinki in January, I decided to not only go running once, but twice. My second tour was a combined leisure and sightseeing tour through the city center.

Winter Wonderland. That’s what I experienced when running in Helsinki. As we stayed at the Hilton Kalastajatorppa, I had the pleasure to go for a run in the nature.

Losing a great view, but gaining a better location: For our second night in Helsinki, we changed from the Hilton Kalastajatorppa to the Hilton Strand, both in Helsinki. Each of them has advantages and some weaknesses, which we will point out more exactly later on. By now, here is how the room we got at the Hilton Strand Helsinki looks like.

Just arrived in Winter Wonderland! This is the stunning view from our room at the Hilton Kalastajatorppa in Helsinki, Finland. Actually, there should be parts of the sea, which are now completely frozen and covered with snow. While the world outside is painted white, we spend our first hours here in the Hilton Kalastajatorppa. A very cozy room with a great view!
