It’s a big year for Helsinki as Finland celebrates a century of independence in 2017. The country’s centennial will be marked with a number of cultural events and art exhibits. This summer there will also be an exciting new hotel from Kämp Collection Hotels, previously known as the Kämp Group, which operates 10 properties including the famous Hotel Kämp, a luxurious landmark dating from 1887.

Located next to the Old Church Park at Yrjönkatu 13, the highly-anticipated Hotel St. George will have 150 guestrooms designed by the Swedish agency Stylt Trampoli. On-site distractions will include a spa with a swimming pool, a restaurant, a cocktail bar and a winter garden that’s billed as the heart of the hotel—both a “living room” and event space. We also hear there will be an impressive public sauna by Avanto Architects. The building itself is a historic landmark, designed by architect Onni Tarjanne who also built the Finnish National Theatre.
