... competitive about everything and anything, especially with Sweden. They don’t talk very much, unless they have something important to say. They hate and don’t understand superficial small talk (I’m with them there) so if you ask a Finnish person how they are, they’ll either roll their eyes and know you’re a foreigner or they will give you a full health report because when they do ask someone how they are, they really mean it and care about the ...
... very fortunate for us, as we could've easily said "Screw it, let's just go back to our hotel and watch TV."
Had we known how awesome this district was, we would've arrived much earlier to fully enjoy all that it offered, instead of only wandering around during the last hour of business before most of the shops were closing up. We were shocked at how fun this area was, and at how much more there was to see and do here - easily the entire day could ...
... in Kaisaniemen park which is really big park near the train station. It was a really beautiful day and there was lots of people enjoying the sunshine. The only gripe I had was that there were quite a lot of smokers, and butts all over the otherwise beautiful and well kept park.
After this we decided we would go geocaching near our hotel but ended up falling asleep in the full sunlight for about 2 hours. I woke up with some pretty damn awful dehydration which ...
... on level 2, Anchor level, below the cars and trucks!) so we had complete darkness for the first time in a while. Anyway, I'm a little disappointed that I didn't actually see any of the boat or the scenery, and missed out on breakfast, but I think sleep was more important at that stage. We arrived at Helsinki around 10ish Friday morning, disembarked, and took the tram to our hotel. We were too early to check in, a real disappointment for those of us who hadn't had ...
... We also witnessed what can only be described as the Finnish family ritual where a dozen or so people sat down to Sunday lunch in a metal cage while dangling from a cable 100 feet above a public square - those Fins are pretty hard core about outdoor dining.
We retreated from the rain by touring the Kamppi Chapel of Silence, a round orange structure with a stunningly simple and austere interior, and the main train station with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Seurahuone Helsinki
Preis-Leistung und Lage großartig
Ich war hier über Weihnachten. Es war sehr ruhig in Helsinki und viele Hotels hatten zu der Zeit auch geschlossen. Das Hotel Seurahuone war für ein 3-Sterne-Hotel eine angenehme Überraschung. Die Zimmer waren komfortabel, das Frühstück sehr gut und die Lage, im Zentrum gegenüber des Bahnhofes, exzellent. Wir hatten ein Club-Zimmer, das wirklich sehr geräumig war.
Great value and location
Stayed here over Christmas. Helsinki was very quiet and many hotels were shut for the period.
The Hotel Seurahuone was a pleasant surprise for a 3-star hotel with comfortable rooms, a very good breakfast and excellent location in the centre of town oppostie the main station.
We had a Club room which was really quite large.
A very nice hotel
The Hotel Seurahuone is a pretty posh hotel, but you can get great rates during the weekend. The location is quite convenient (right across from the train station, in the city center, which is a nice area, and close to many museums). The room decor is pretty, featuring reproductions of Gustav Klimt paintings, and the service is excellent. They even offer you a choice of pillows. The breakfast, which was included in our rate, was extensive and high-quality, and the breakfast room was lovely and quiet. The hotel has retained some of its old-fashioned charm, with gilt elevator signs that say "Lift", chandeliers, and a gorgeous bar. The central lobby is smaller than it would be in a U.S. hotel of this level, but that seems to be the standard in Helsinki. The room we had was also on the small side, but it made up for that in its general feeling of luxury.
I staid at this hotel with my husband 8 th of June 06 for 1 night and I can honestly say that it was my best experience ever in a hotel!!! Especially the staff at the hotels reception was great, professional and helpful. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. Thank you for your hospitality girls!!!!!:-)Absolutely magnificent!
Loved this hotel!
I thought this hotel was stunning and right opposite the train station. The staff were friendly, the rooms very large and the atmosphere very calming. Would definitely recommend it.
¡Adoro este hotel¡
Pensé que era hotel era sorprendente y estaba justo al lado de la estación de trenes. El personal fue muy agradable, las habitaciones muy grandes y su atmósfera muy tranquila. Os lo recomiendo.
Lleno de carácter
Cuando iba frecuentemente a Helsinki este era mi hotel favorito. Está en un antiguo edificio con detalles de Art Deco y lleno de carácter. Su personal es agradable. Me gustaba porque podías relajarte en el sofá de tu gran habitación tras un duro día de trabajo. Pide una habitación que de al frente porque el club nocturno que hay detrás ¡puede ser un tanto ruidoso!
Full of character
When I travelled frequently to Helsinki, this was my favorite hotel. It is in an old building with Art Deco like details and is full of character. Its staff is friendly. I liked it because of its really big rooms that allowed you to relax on a sofa after a hard day's work. Ask for a room at the front because the night club at the back can be noisy!!!
