Gay Helsinki Hotels

Helsinki has plenty of hotels to choose from and it's a very welcoming city for gay travellers

Is Helsinki gay friendly?

Helsinki is considered one of the most LGBTQ+-friendly cities in the world. The city has strong legal protections for LGBTQ+ individuals and a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere. Hotels like the Klaus K Hotel, Clarion Hotel Helsinki, and Clarion Hotel Aviapolis proudly collaborate with local LGBTQ+ organizations and advocates like Hannu Medina's We Speak Gay. During Helsinki Pride celebrations, the Klaus K Hotel serves as the official "Pride House" hosting various events. Company leadership also stresses the importance of visibly demonstrating a commitment to diversity, with some hotels flying rainbow flags year-round.
