The St George is certainly Helsinki's most stylish and luxurious hotel, with an unrivalled position right in the city centre, just a few minutes’ walk from Mannerheimintie and the esplanade that leads down to the harbour-side Market Square. Located in a magnificent historic building dating back to 1840s, the Hotel St George offers 148 contemporary elegant rooms and five suites. Upon checking in stop and admire Tianwu, a suspended kite installation by famed Chinese artist Ai Weiwei hanging in the reception. The light-filled atrium of the Winter Garden lounge is an ideal spot for afternoon tea. We love the St George Care Spa, which offers various treatments and for the troubled sleepers out there, an innovative sleep consultancy based on sensors they can place under their beds. The minimalistic sauna, steam room and swimming pool offer an opportunity for relaxation from sightseeing. Picnic baskets can be provided from the hotel's popular in-house bakery.
