Hotel Torni

Hotel Torni (Hotel Tower) is a historical hotel located in Helsinki, Finland and part of the Sokos Hotel hotel chain. When opened in 1931, it became the tallest building in Finland, a position it maintained until the completion of the new Fortum (then Neste) headquarters in neighboring Espoo in 1976, and it remained the tallest building in Helsinki until 1987. The interior of the building was completely renovated in 2005.

History

The hotel served the needs of air defense during the Second World War. Immediately after the cessation of the war, Hotelli Torni served as the headquarters of the Allied Control Commission monitoring Finnish compliance with the obligations of the Moscow Armistice.

Restaurants

In Hotel Torni there are several restaurants including "Ravintola Torni" (dining), "Ateljee Bar" (top of the tower with view over downtown Helsinki, known espescially for the toilets which have scenic glass walls to the outside), "American Bar" (American style restaurant) and "O'Malley's" (Irish bar).
