Great old hotel.

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: Staff and atmosphere
Location: Centrally located - a short walk to the market and many major sites
The staff were great - friendly and helpful. Location is excellent, right beside the railway station and across the road from the Finnair bus. This older hotel had a lot of charm. I just wish it would have had air conditioning.

GOOD CLASSIC HOTEL

Posted Jul 12, 2014
Pros: Staff, room size, bathtub, location, beautiful staircase, breakfasts. Room fridge with room for beer and wine.
Cons: Nil.
Location: Central, Everything is close by.
The Seurahuone Hotel is an older classic hotel that has been refurbished. It is located very close to the helsinki Rialway Station, close to evrything. Rooms were a good size, the hotel is beautiful and the breakfasts were very good. A nice feature - the hotel has bathtubs and shower. The front street can be noisy but the double windows kept the noise out. Staff were great.

Great location

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: Location, large rooms, beautiful old world hotel.
Location: within the city centre
building works being carried out outside with scaffolding on the footpath, but this did not detract from the hotel. So easy to get too after getting off the Finnair Bus from the airport. Walking distance to all major attractions, including the harbour. Would stay here again.

Old hotel - tiniest bathroom, massive construction

Posted Jun 30, 2014
This is a very old hotel - in the classic style - high ceilings, classic design, but the smallest bathroom ever - and it floods when you take a shower. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone except one who absolutely loves the classic old building designs that are common to Helsinki and St. Petersburg. The hotel has massive renovations going on on the outside facade - so you can hear drilling from early morning on.

Location location

Posted May 12, 2014
The hotel itself is looking a little tired, the bed was very comfortable but room is noisey as the hotel is next door to two night clubs, no TV unless you pay a 12.50 euro charge which I thought was a cheek, a mini bar which was empty ? Not even water. However, excellent locatation in the heart of Helsinki, have stayed in better hotels for the same price in Helsinki but wouldn't bother me to stay here again..

Very few facilities, but good location

Posted Apr 10, 2014
Pros: Location. Period, location.
Cons: Restaurant and bar should be open every night, it is a hotel. There should be a shop where you could buy a toothbrush, gum etc.
Location: Right across the street from the main rail road station and the metro station. Next to street cars, by Sokos Dpt store, close to Stockmann Dpt store.
Rooms very warm, no temperatur control: we left window open all the time. No shop of any kind. Both restaurant and bar closed on Mondays! Breakfast was included and it was ok. Front desk staff mostly ok, bar tender was excellent. Had room service once and the restaurant food was very good.
