A fantastic hotel just over the road from the main rail station and everything is in walking distance. The staff are really friendly and nothing is to much trouble and the bar staff are amazing and make the most delicious cocktails.

The Hotel is very conveniently located. Everything is reachable in walking distance from hotel either it be taxi stand,Subway or Bus Stops. Also there are good number of eating joints and shopping malls nearby. Coming back to the Hotel itself, it is pretty old as I understand and you can feel it from the interiors of the hotel.

This hotel is right opposite the main station in Helsinki so if you have a one night stopover, you just catch the train or airport bus and walk across the square and you are there. Older style hotel, large rooms and bathrooms have underfloor heating which is great in November. Breakfast is basic but adequate, friendly check in staff. There... More

This historical hotel is located in a jugend building in the heart of Helsinki . The location couldn't be more central - everything is near from the train station to shops, restaurants and museums.

The Seurahuone is an elegant hotel with fascinating 1920s/1930s-style interiors, making it a very cool building to wander around in. I took several pictures of the interiors – most hotels these days have bland and generic interiors, making the Seurahuone refreshingly different. It's all a bit worn down, though, and tells the tale of former glory days gone by…you should... More

My husband and I like travelling by train, so look for a hotel nearby to train stations.

IN need of some tender loving care, another lift, new carpets, but the room we stayed in was fine, big enough, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fine. Location opposite the railway station and M & S > Walkable to the market hall and the sea. Staff were helpful.

We stayed here as part of a group tour. We liked this hotel because of its location and its rather old-worldly feel. I really liked the restaurant where the breakfast was served.
