It’s Time to Write a New Chapter in the History of Helsinki Hotels
Hotel St. George to open first weeks of 2018.
Just over one year ago, Kämp Collection Hotels unveiled its tenth hotel venture. Now, following a meticulous restoration, Hotel St. George will open its doors during the first weeks of 2018 at Yrjönkatu 13, directly across from the beautiful Old Church Park in the heart of Helsinki.
While the oldest sections of Hotel St. George date back to the 1840s, the most iconic – designed by architect Onni Tarjanne – was completed in 1890. Tarjanne is best known for designing the Finnish National Theatre in 1902. Throughout the years, the building at Yrjönkatu 13 has hosted the Finnish Literature Society, the printing house for the first Finnish newspaper, Suometar, and the Helsinki Finnish Club, among others. Stories from its past have played a crucial role in the interior design of the hotel. When the hotel is completed, such stories will also serve as inspiration for the themes of future events.

Ai Weiwei (b. 1957) is widely regarded as one of the most renowned contemporary artists alive today. Known for his social commentary, Ai Weiwei uses a variety of mediums and materials in his conceptual art, experimenting with sculpture, photography, documentary, video and architecture.
Hotel St. George will be spoiled with art. In the Winter Garden, sculptor Pekka Jylhä’s six-meter-long brass bird finds a permanent nest under the glass roof of the Winter Garden. The interplay between light and the bird’s sculptural form creates a striking spatial ambiance. Jylhä has a unique way of mixing scale, material and light. He creates works that observe poetically the large and small details of life while always leaving room for the viewer’s own discoveries and interpretation.
Take a break from routine and refresh yourself with art! Hotel St. George has teamed up with museums in the greater Helsinki area to provide its customers with unique experiences of culture and art.
