Historic Helsinki hotel overlooking central station

The Hotelli Seurahuone Helsinki is over 180 years old and still sparkles with its attention to detail.  Family and pet friendly, with on-site gourmet French dining, this independent property is a treasured local landmark.  What's more, the hotel is as a central hub for exploring the wonders of Helsinki.

Within a 15 minute walk, guests can see the Helsinki Cathedral, a massive columned church with green domes atop high towers.  Check out Market Square for shopping, or Suomenlinna Fortress, a massive complex with many museums.  Travelers can also rent bicycles near the hotel and go wherever their heart desires.

Enjoy Le Havre, an elegant brasserie

Do you enjoy dining on traditional French coastal cuisine with its fresh fish and seafood under beautiful chandeliers? Visit the on-site restaurant, Le Havre in the Hotelli Seurahuone Helsinki which serves breakfast and dinner.  For other dining options, there is room service during select hours, and a hot/cold breakfast buffet every morning.

Wind down in the evening with a drink at Bar Socis, which has a beautiful, ornate glass dome roof and a famed antique fountain. There are also free refreshments at reception all hours, day and night.  The 24 hour front desk is ready to help with tour and ticket assistance when it's time to schedule a family outing. The laundry facilities in the hotel are another great benefit for guests with young children. 

Higher standards for lower rates in Finland

Sophisticated and, yet, casual, the 118 guest rooms at the Hotelli Seurahuone Helsinki are richly furnished with gold-colored fabrics and dark wood, a step above the typical carpeted hotel fare.  Rooms come with free Wi-Fi and minibars, so you can stay connected or just relax with a drink and watch satellite TV.  Be sure to book a club room if the minibar is a must-have.  Rooms have quality down comforters and each guest can select their pillows from one of five choices on the pillow menu.

The bottom line

Less expensive and higher-rated than the nearby Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna Helsinki, the Hotelli Seurahuone Helsinki provides 4 star Finland luxury for only three-star prices.  This is a great way to visit Finland by staying at a memorable landmark hotel in the heart of Helsinki, without spending your entire travel budget.  Whether you are a business or leisure traveler, you will enjoy the hotel’s accommodations and convenient location.  Keep in mind that this hotel is not built on any waterfront.

Expert Reviews
Michelin Guide
Early 20C hotel - one of the oldest in Finland - where a sympathetic renovation has retained a pleasant period feel.
Built in 1913, this Viennese-style town-house hotel across from the train station has a loyal clientele won over by its ageless charm and cosmopolitan interiors.
