Hotelli Seurahuone Helsinki

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is at best a 3 star hotel - but the location is great and within walking distance of everything that you want to see and do on a 2 or 3 day break. The hotel is tired and shabby - worn carpets, terrible interiors, no home comforts not even a bar of soap in the bathroom or a telephone in the bedroom to call down to reception. I'd recommend paying a little extra and staying somewhere else if you like a little luxury/comfort.

Small hotel room which has certainly seen better days. Struggling to find space to open 2 suitcases simultaneously. A double bed but with only a single duvet! Clearly not all rooms have been refurbished as ours still has a dodgy carpet. Glad we are only here for 1 night. There are much better hotels in Helsinki. Not recommended.

It's a balancing act. If you want somewhere central which offers a decent breakfast - this hotel is great. We had a club room on the 4th floor and paid £500 for 3 nights. We were kept awake by Nextdoor chatting, the nightclub can be heard until 4am, the room can be stuffy as no a/c - but there is an opening window. There is minimal staff to help you in reception - the left luggage is self service! - which is not great for security. There is also a sewer smell on the ground floor. This would have been a fantastic hotel 100 years ago - now it's just a hotel that's showing its age.

"Excellent location ! Right in front of the train station! Employees very nice. There's a locker room locked. " No room air conditioner! Also in Finland can be warm, was in a small fan cabinet! Elevator without an inner door - with children it's dangerous !!! I asked for a view - I received a room with a window to a back yard with kitchen chimneys - opening a window and there was smoke in the room !!!

Really average hotel. Room was quite outdated, our room was towards street so couldn't sleep much. Also no A/C in the room, at least could open the window, but as having a room into the street couldn't keep in open during night. Basic breakfast. Location is good and service at front desk very good. So next time I'll choose some other hotel.

Our room was clean and comfortable- but I would agree that the hotel is pretty tired. It was next to nightclubs - but we didn't hear anything in the night. We also didn't hear the lift - but we were a fair distance away. Good central location and good buffet breakfast.

Very conveniently located opposite the central station and close to the harbour and shopping. The building is old- elevators with no doors, elevators not connecting to certain floor levels, poor internet, very small left-luggage room etc.

My wife and I recently stayed at this Hotel for the second time. The second time was as good as the first. While it was minus 16 degrees when we arrived, the hotel and it's staff and the level of hospitality made up for the weather. The location of this hotel makes it a perfect place to stay in Helsinki. All the major tourist activities are either in walking distance or a tram ride, the trams leave from the terminal at the front of the Hotel. Our room was beautiful with a view over the Plaza and Railway Terminal and Bus Terminal where the airport buses arrive and depart from. Breakfast was very enjoyable. We will certainly stay here again on our next trip to Helsinki.

Beware: it is next to two night clubs and vomit and human pee are on the sidewalks next to the hotel Beware: it is a tired hotel in need of refurbishment. A long time ago it was elegant. Beware: the room rate/night they advertise is not what you get for the whole stay. We went to their Restel website (so to pay them the 20% commission that platforms usually take). They advertised E149 per night. But of the four nights, only one was at E149. The others were higher. They provided NO BREAKDOWN of costs on the internet site. Only by asking for the bill at check out did we discover this. We wanted to be nice to them, but they were misleading on their website. We were stupid. At 57 years old, I hate feeling stupid. Good luck if you stay there. beware beware beware

We enjoyed the our stay in this Classic Hotel, the room was spacious and clean close to super markets, transportation and attractions. We enjoyed the classic elevator (wait to you see it) the breakfast buffet was also very good. I however have an issue with the shower as it does not keep the water within the drain and you will spend time drying the floor using towels that could be used the next day.
