Helsinki, a city with great applied design, was made comfortable during a ridiculous end of March snowstorm, by staying at this hotel which was cozy, intimate and modestly priced. Near Lappish, Nepalese, Thai restaurants and walking distance from virtually everything worth seeing in the center of the city (and that includes the central railway station), the Glo is good for...

Good location (5-10 minute walk to Esplanadi), excellent rooms with some state of the art design elements. If you like to goto a hotel which is not identical with hundreds of others all over the world - this is your choice

The hotel staff are so friendly here, the rooms are really comfy and the rooms are big (on the older side) the new rooms are really nice and very modern but a bit clostrophobic, as there is no window to open, but the rooms do have really good air con, but if your use to having the window open like...

I've stayed here a few times before and still think they manage to better them selves (while I was not unhappy the previous times). Like the rooms, the location and the supportive staff, nothing to complain about. I'd fully recommend the hotel for both business and pleasure.

Stayed here for 3 nights with some friends. Hotel was centrally located, hotel was very clean and breakfast was good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were fairly small and a little warm. All in all I would happily stay there again. Helsinki itself was a little disappointing although that was not helped by the grey weather during the... More

We stayed for 3 nights in early February 2015 over a weekend. Initial room was a standard and far too small. Felt claustrophobic though loved the electonic bed adjustment. We upgraded to a much more spacious and comfortable room for an extra 15 euros a night which was pretty good. Breakfast was excellent in the basement of a several hundred... More

We really enjoyed our stay in the Glo Art hotel. Firstly, the location is fantastic- 5 minutes from anything you would like to visit in central Helsinki. Perfect for shopping, restaurants, museums etc. Secondly, the hotel itself is beautiful, from the almost out of place exterior, to the cosy, comfortable interior. The reception area, bar and library areas are pleasant... More

Location is really great if you want to stay in the older areas of Helsinki instead of right in the middle of town with the noise of all the trains, buses etc. However location still really close to city center, only about 1 km. It's in the middle of the most hip/fashionable part of Helsinki, so lots of design shops,... More

Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, wonderful breakfast, convenient location etc etc etc. But one of the things I really like in this hotel is the study room. Just amazing to get you a homely feeling in the middle of the cold winter.
