Hotel Seurahuone Helsinki

At the end of the 1820s, Helsinki sorely needed distinguished, stylish premises for festivities. The Town Hall had become far too small and was unable to meet the demand. A meeting held in the Helsinki Magistrate’s Office on 29 November 1827 drew attention to the town’s lack of a decent hotel and restaurant operator. This led to the decision to establish the Hotel Seurahuone, and on 29 January 1828 a Board of Directors was appointed for the new joint-stock company. The grand opening of the new hotel, designed by architect Carl Ludvig Engel, took place on 8 December 1833.

Since its founding in 1833, the Hotel Seurahuone in Helsinki has been one of Finland’s most renowned venues for dining, accommodation and receptions. Just about everything important, fun, new or memorable that occurred in Finland during this period took place in the Seurahuone. The University of Helsinki’s bicentennial festivities in July 1840 were celebrated for five days. Finland’s first opera performances (1852), popular music concerts (1882), variety acts (1892) and cinema shows (1896) were all held at the Seurahuone.

A fervent search for a new site to replace the outmoded hotel took place in 1911-1912. Help came from Uno Kurtén, director of the insurance company Kaleva and a friend of Wilhelm Noschis, who had become hotel director in 1902. Space for the new Hotel Seurahuone was reserved in the Kaleva Palace to be constructed at the corner of Kaivokatu and Heikinkatu streets. The Seurahuone became a focal point for events also in the new building designed by Armas Lindgren. In services and modern conveniences, the new Hotel Seurahuone opened in 1913 was the sensation of its day; each room featured, among others, a phone, hot water and central heating.
