Housed in a meticulously restored landmark building that faces Old Church Park, Hotel St. George offers a new take on the hotel concept in the heart of Helsinki. Inspiration abounds in a boldly curated art collection that includes Tianwu, a sculpture of a giant white dragon by internationally celebrated Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. The central Winter Garden recalls the 18th century’s great interior gardens. The Andrea restaurant is run by a duo of Finnish and Turkish chefs, both superstars in their respective culinary scenes. Our full-service luxury hotel also offers a holistic, contemporary spa experience.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
Mirkku Kullberg, the Finnish-born Design Hotels™ Original and creative director behind Hotel St. George, has been a key figure in the fashion industry for more than two decades. As the former CEO of the iconic Finnish design firm Artek and the former head of Vitra Home at Vitra International AG, Kullberg is no stranger to blurring the lines between art, design, media, and technology, as exemplified by Hotel St. George. Her business experience has also led her to spend time on the boards of such companies as Pohjola Bank, Saga Furs, and KSF Media.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
The landmark building that houses the hotel was built in the mid- to late 1800s. Much of the structure was originally designed by renowned Finnish architect Onni Tarjanne, best known for designing the Finnish National Theatre in 1902. While previous tenants have included the Finnish Literature Society and the first Finnish newspaper’s printing house, the building now impresses visitors with such architectural highlights as a winter garden in the courtyard, which is sheltered by a glass roof.
