“Nice hotel centrally located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

Stayed here on a business trip. The hotel seemed very quiet and peaceful, at least partially because there was not that many patrons when I stayed. My superior room on the 7th floor was spacious, modern and clean with flat screen and wired internet connection (wi-fi available only in the public areas on the first floor). Bed was very good and I slept like a baby, which I usually don't do at hotels. Breakfast was above Finnish average but nothing to write home about. Recommended if you stay in Kotka.

Room Tip: Rooms in the new part are nice and quiet

I stay here when going to Hamina. It is the default choice - there is not much else. It is clean and decent if unexciting. As noted elsewhere the new part has the better rooms but the older ones are OK too.
There is a traditional restaurant and a tex mex restaurant on site.
Service usually OK too.

Room Tip: Ask for new part and off the road

The location of is central in this country town. I walked from the bus station on arrival.

Room was very clean and modern, recently refurbished. Not very large but functional. The room was quiet and I slept well although I prefer a larger bed (there were two single beds) .

Breakfast was good and staff friendly.

There is a restaurant in the hotel. I arrived very tired and was happy that just across the street there was also a pizza take-out restaurant.

I was on a business trip to Kotka. I happen to Stay at this hotel.
Sweet - The hotel location is very good. Its location is next to the Park area. A little walk will lead you to the Famous Maritime Centre Vellamo.
Sour - The hotel staff's way of welcoming was not good.
Bitter - There was no proper information and guidelines of the places of interest near the hotel.
Its a very good city for travelling during summer.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms which have the park view. Its huge windows gives you a nice panaromic view of the City...

I was in Kotka to visit family and friends, but unfortunately there are not a lot of hotel choices there. That being said the Seurahuone is a reasonable place to stay. It is convienent being only a short walk from the Bus station and right in the center of town. The staff is courteous; however, the rooms are a bit small. On the flip side they are quite modern and clean.

Seurahone has a restaurant on premises and a couple bars / clubs which can be a fun heading into and during the weekend. It is a quick walk from the hotel to the waterfront which is a lovely area. During the summer months you will find concerts, line dancing and other events along the harbor and a beautiful park area. Kotka itself has the potential to become a quaint and lively summer city.

There is old part and a new part in this hotel. Old part is little worn. I recommend to ask for the rooms that are located in the new part of this hotel.
Good breakfast, hospital staff.
Good and clean sauna with a beautiful view over the city.
