Klaus K Joins the Avantgarde Line of Epoque Hotels
May 03, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsMiami Beach, FL - Epoque Hotels is proud to announce its partnership with renowned Finnish boutique hotel Klaus K. Epoque Hotels has dubbed Klaus K an Avantgarde Superior Hotel, the Avantgarde Line being the newly launched collection of hip, innovative hotels in the group.
A depiction of a national epic, the Kalevala, is astoundingly translated in the Klaus K hotel. Modelled on complementary disparities of the ancient story, which tells of a mother goddess birthing eggs bearing variant worldly elements, including the sun and moon, this hotel in Helsinki has received many praises in the country’s hospitality circuit and has gained a world famous reputation.
Located at the centre of the city’s main streets, Erottaja and Mannerheimintie, and atop the Helsinki's Esplanadi, it allows for the fashionable traveller to cross the street for excellent shopping. The Klaus K is also less than 20 kilometres away from Helsinki International Airport. The Kalevala aspects are apparent upon arrival with the egg shaped reception desk brilliantly lit by a bright nest-like structure. The all-white modern seating area surrounding the desk is suggestive of the seven eggs in the story.
Each room in the hotel, including two suites, have custom made beds with suede headboards, and mattresses lined with comfort to assure pleasant dreams. The rooms have an ambiance that breathes warmth and seduction, and are rightly classified in six categories: Passion, Mystical, Desire, Envy, Envy Plus, and Envy Suite.
Named one the of the top 60 coolest hotels in the world, in the May 2006 issue of the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler Magazine, this 137 room hotel truly does embrace the “cool” title, and does so with an air of folklore and epicurean elegance. As a prided hotspot in the capital of Finland, the club hopper, taste connoisseur, and trendy alike can also be found at Klaus K’s eateries and champagne bars—Filmitähti, Toscanini, Ilmatar—or Ahjo night club.
