I've stayed in Seurahuone for several times during the years. The building is old and that's what I love about the place. The service is impeccably polite and warm. Over the years the breakfast has gone down a little bit, but I still enjoy having breakfast in that mighty old hall. The location is very convenient. Overall a nice hotel... More

I don't know if I just had bad luck with my stay in this famous hotel, but I was looking forward to my first stay in this perfectly located landmark in Helsinki. I always try to keep expectations low, but this time they were quite high due to having heard so many good things in advance. The location is perfect,... More

Dear VidarNilsen Thank you for giving us a honest review. We regret that the property constructions did disturb you - it has been a real challenge this year. The breakfast is something we honestly are proud of, in your case we, for some reason, fell short. The reason must be investigated and solved, I guarantee we will do better. This... More

The location for a hotel could not be more central. Service is very nice starting immediately when you enter the building. Rooms are beautiful and not of the usual hotel standard, but just a bit more. The only minus is the renovation that is ongoing.

Stayed at hotel Seurahuone for one night only. The room was was very spacious, grand, with all conveniences and a great bed. Unfortunately there was some refurbishment work ongoing on the outside of the building, which meant I was woken up by a lot of noise at the crack of dawn.

best location possible in the city centre, close to restaurants, malls & train station. Building is old style (you can see it's not so new anymore), but rooms are specious enough. Other things to consider: - no A/C & most windows giving on the street which can be noisy - small bathrooms - you can hardly move - acceptable food... More

This hotel is just so convenient, across the road from the Central Station and the Airport Bus. The scaffolding on the outside was a bit of a downer, as was the workers' elevator directly outside our window, which ground its way up and down from 06:00. Having said that, the welcome and helpful advice from the reception staff was first... More

The hotel has an aristocratic flair and takes you back in time with its interior architecture. The rooms are stylish, as well as dining room. Note the lamps and the tiles on the floor. Food superb, with English and Continental breakfast. Highly recommendable.
