One of Hotel Seurahuone's key advantage is its location. The Central Station is just across the road, tram stop just in front and the airport bus stand is 4 mins' walk. And Helsinki's main attractions and shopping areas are within walking distance. The hotel is retro/classic in style, stately and majestic settings mainly in black & gold. Breakfast is plentiful...

The hotel is located in a very good location, almost in front of the train station and walking distance to the harbor and the fancy Esplanade street. The hotel is very old but not in a bad way... it reminds you of luxury and ball rooms. The bar is nice and the breakfast is very good. The bedrooms are confortable,...

There is no shortage of hotels in Helsinki, and anything will be efficiently run, clean and triple-glazed. But there is a lot of pretty characterless stuff out there, which is why the Seurahuone is worth considering if you like a bit of style and character. The hotel was used in the early 20th century as a meeting place for musicians...

Excellent hotel bang in the middle of Helsinki's busy bits. Olde worlde charm with all mod cons. Hustle and bustle outside but quiet on the inside. Very good food and service. Good views out over the Art Deco train terminus (worth a visit in itself). Cold outside but hotel always warm. Ideal place to stay if you want to be...

The Hotel Seurahoune is ideal for anyone using the trains as it is opposite the station. Also good if you arrive by plane as the Finnair airport bus stops at the railway station and the hotel is visible when you leave the bus. An interesting old hotel with lots of character and with very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast...

Situated right in the middle of Helsinki and very close to the railway station. Large spacious rooms and very clean. Average breakfast buffet. Since my wife is in a wheelchair we asked for a wheelchair friendly room which they didn't have. As we didn't book this hotel by ourselves we had to take what they had. We got upgraded to...

This lovely old hotel may not be for everyone but if you like historic places then there is no better. It is centrally located - spitting distance from the railway station. The rooms are small and fully functional with coffee, tea and bar fridge. There isn't any A/C and we used the fan and left the window open a but...

The location of the hotel could not be more central. Like said here earlier, hotel is quite datet, but has nice old charm. My biggest complaints come from the noise, that wake me at 01 am. I stayed at the third floor. After a long working day I was exhausted, and the next day even more, since the beat from...

Nice-looking hotel with old-fashioned, but comfortable furniture - chairs in rooms and in restaurant are very good. Breakfast - also good. But - no air-condition (in summer it could be terrible, because, the windows are looking on the busiest corner of the city), no- sauna, no- gym. Only funny signs on some doors, like "Telephone" are very nice. By stying...

This hotel has succeeded in maintaining some of its old charm and combining elements that bring the hotel to the 21st century. The rooms are warm and their decor is inviting. The breakfast leaves a little to be desired for. The only issue I had with this hotel, really, was the lack of airconditioning in the guest rooms.
