4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at the Glo Art in one of the standard rooms for 3 nights and found it to be very comfortable. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the city centre, although Helsinki is a relatively small city and we could easily walk to most everywhere we wanted to go. The breakfast was quite nice, good choice of... More

Stayed here over 2 nights in a Comfort M room with a sleeping couch. The first room that we got was very warm with no other heat regulation than opening the window. After asking about this in the reception, we got offered a new room with AC by the helpful staff. Both of the rooms were spacious though and of... More

first I'd like to report customs in Helsinki were pretty tough, not on me, but there were very long lines at midnight! I took a cab from the airport, and the drive was about 25 minutes and cost 40 euro, it was so amazing to drive into the city that late and see activity and no Snow!!! Once I arrived... More

The twin room we had was modern, clean, comfortable and a decent size. There wasn't much amenities offered and we had some problems with the TV as the signals kept dropping out. Breakfast was not bad. The hotel is located in the design district so lots of design shops nearby. It's not right in the city centre but we found... More

Their marketing leans on historic castle-like facade which - I suppose - is 100 years old and real. This looks nice and promising. However the castle-like athmosphere ends in the reception, as the rooms are situated in the next door block of flats building. Rooms are standard and average no-thrills-business-hotel style and quality. Certainly no luxury. Certainly no personality as... More

We just spent 3 nights over Christmas at the hotel and absolutely loved it. Despite being quite big, the hotel lobby and facilities feel more like a boutique hotel than a large chain hotel. The staff is nice and helpful, the food at the restaurant, including breakfast, is amazing (I would give it 3 Michelin stars). The location, to me,... More

The location of this hotel is its best feature. It is within walking distance of central Helsinki, several galleries and shops and many bars and restaurants (including Nepalese, Chinese, Thai, Italian and one serving food from Lappland). The lobby looks bigger on the website photos than in real life, but it still is impressive (the building is a former polytechnic... More

The reception area is magic, great architecture. Rooms are well decorated and beds are very comfortable, they dont really have the character of the rest of the building and the wardrobe has enough space for two coats only. Breakfast is everything you could wish for, and there are goods restaurants, nearby. Would recommend Passio Keittio Baari for dinner only a... More

I stayed with a friend for 3 nights in GLO Hotel Art. The room was small but had a fantastic shower. Beds are good but rather narrow, location is great, all interesting places in walking distance - if you like walking! A markethall is down the road and a fleamarkets is next to it. The breakfast buffet is simply gorgoeous,... More

I was excited about the Art Nouveau castle front of this hotel and it was indeed a wonderful entry on a snowy winter night. The staff was very friendly and we had a good welcome. However, we were soon encouraged to upgrade (for a fee) to a bigger room as the one we had booked was apparently very small. :/... More
