While staying at the Valio Jäätelöfabriikki Sweet Suite, named after Valio’s ice cream brand, you can enjoy all the sweet treats you want thanks to a freezer in the room. You can sample Valio’s four new flavours  – a rich chocolate, tart and sweet lemon curd, passion fruit-coconut and apple-oat pie. The room features 1930s vintage furnishings and Nordic design by interior designers Anna Pirkola and Kirsikka Simberg.

It offers guests pretty pink decor, luxurious sheets and they can soak in a bubble bath in its pastel bathroom. There is also a swing in the room, which is a pretty unusual hotel room feature. Helsinki is a natural choice for an ice cream-themed suite, as Finns consume the most ice cream in Europe per capita.

The suite is available for reservation from March to September and sleeps two people. “Valio Jäätelöfabriikki aims to make you happy,” says Valio’s ice cream business manager, Tea Ijäs. “To many, ice cream is a break from the daily grind. We wanted to create a small, surprising experience around delicious ice cream. This luxurious hotel suite and our beloved ice creams are a match made in heaven.”
