3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I had read quite a few reviews of this hotel prior to my visit in March. Some good, some not so good. I was eager to see for myself and make up my own mind!! My work colleagues and I visited this hotel and stayed 5 nights. The trip was for work and we had to travel by train to Jarvenpaa each morning. This hotel firstly has the perfect location for the train station, it is literally across the road!! We found this most convenient. The hotel is old style and as other visitors commented it could do with an upgrade and a little more attention to housekeeping regarding dusting in particular. However I found the decor very pleasant and I liked the old world style and chandeliers throughout. The breakfast room and bar area are most beautiful, with many original features intact. Breakfast was very good. There was a wide selection of foods available. Hot and cold buffet and a good selection of hot and cold beverages. The hotel does not have a sauna but guests can use the sauna in the holiday inn across the road. It was very nice. There is also excellent WiFi available. Seurahuone staff are all well trained and very professional and pleasant. Overall I would recommend Seurahuone. The location of this hotel is the major selling point. Visitors for holiday trips are in the centre for all tourist activities and there are excellent shopping opportunities and restaurants on your doorstep. Thank you for making my visit to Helsinki memorable🌸

The location is very central. The staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is good average. The rooms are small. Overall a good place and I surely would stay there again. The heater are hard to regulate.

You need to bring your own blackout curtains to the hotel. My bedroom window had a missing blackout curtain and outside there was floodlights directed at my window. I went to the reception and they gave me scissors and duct-tape witch I used on the other curtains in order to split them and cover the window with the missing curtains. (Look at the added photos) :-) Otherwise, the room was nice except the paint on a few walls had come of do to some mold. The hotel was not entirely bad. The location in central Helsinki is excellent. Also the bar and restaurant were excellent. Enjoyed everything at the breakfast except the scrambled eggs that had the strangest taste I ever experienced when eating scrambled eggs.

the location of the hotel is very central to the train station and other aminities. However the room was small and quiet cramped. We went there with our 1 year old and would surely say that its not child friendly hotel. Breakfast was good with a good spread of option.

The hotel is directly in the centre, next to central station. It has a classy old fashioned style and could provide everything for a high class, but the owner should invest some money into the hotel: The floor and some furnitures were damaged. Some parts should be exchanged. I got an electric shock at the juice machine. The breakfast doesn't have a big variety and the rooms could be cleaner. So overall, the hotel is ok, but nothing more.

Stayed here on business for one night. I chose the hotel on the basis of price and location, on these points it was good. Check in was quick and friendly. The receptionist spoke excellent English. My room was clean and well presented, but a little tired, like the whole hotel. The one disappointing thing about the room was a complete lack of facilities to make a hot drink. Breakfast was the usual hot and cold buffet. There was a good selection of bread and crackers together with the bacon, sausages and scrambled eggs, which had an unusual consistency. I learnt that the hotel has thin walls as my neighbours came in late and talked loudly. In the end, I called reception who came up and dealt with them. Clearly not the best hotel but perfectly adequate. I'd stay again for business.

20-30 years ago this was probably a classy hotel and a beautiful place, but they forgot to keep up with the times. Generally worn down and scruffy. Got a room on the 3rd floor with the ugliest carpet I have seen and a bed with a top mattress to small for the bed. At breakfast bacon and scrambled eggs were cold so a low 2 out 6 on the bacon scale. The location I great and price was good so if they renovate this could be the top choice in Helsinki. Now it is a bit sad

This is a vintage hotel, built in the 1800's, located on the Central Railway Station Square, with a grand staircase, nice bar, and one restaurant which doubles for buffet breakfast. The rooms are comfortably appointed, with a duvet covered bed, desk, TV, armoire, and kettle. The soaring ceilings, nonetheless, did not mean any discomfort in heating. Similarly well appointed bathroom, with shower and heated towel racks. Improvements are possible. The carpet runner on the staircase is well-worn. The maid staff was inconsistent. However, the front desk was efficient, competent, attentive and helpful. Would be happy to stay again.

I am currently sitting in my room in this hotel which describes itself as a quaint Historic Hotel. Well that's a real joke, as it's just a shabby, run down hotel which needs a lot of maintenance. Paint is coming off the walls everywhere. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the standard rooms which, for the price, is rediculous. You can't adjust the heat in the room. I'm currently sitting by a light which flickers non stop. The one single pillow is so thin you can't even get a decent night's sleep. The carpets throughout the hotel are worn. Its only redeeming feature is that it is close to the railway station and city centre.

This is a must stay hotel for those who wants to have easy traveling day.Situated in centre of city was the big plus point for me to stay there.breakfast was good,restaurant had grand big lights very attractive.i had a good one day stay there.overall my stay was fruitful.Only problem I had was with the room environment.I stayed in 4th floor in room 421 Checked in 2nd of Jan 2018.Room looked tidy but it was dirty at-least for me.toilet bathtub had plenty of small human hairs.Inside mini fridge there was sticky thing which got stuck to my food.Yuck.which shows housekeeping not done properly. Overall my stay was good and easy.
