Best Western Premier Hotel Katajanokka
Our hotel, Hotel Katajanokka, was an old prison dating back to 1837. It served as a prison up until 2002 and then converted to a hotel in 2007. Our room was the equivalent of two prison cells and was very quiet, as it should be with those thick walls! At breakfast they served us on plates like the prisoners would have eaten off of. All of the workers and maids wore striped black and white shirts. Hokey, yet it was fun. One cell was kept in its original state so you really could see what it was like.
