Glo Art Hotel is a nice little boutique hotel situated a 5 minute walke away from Helsinki Train station. The rooms are bright, modern and functional with everything done with typical Scandinavian style. Good value with friendly staff and not overly expensive.

The hotel was used for the final two nights by a tour group I joined. I planned on staying extra nights in Helsinki and decided to stick with GLO Hotel Art after seeing the photos on the web. It looked gorgeous. However, after one night, I wished I chose another hotel. It ended up being one of the worst hotels... More

This hotel is very well located in the city centre. The hotel itself is a mixture of old and new, with an old-world lobby but very modern, hi-tech rooms — especially the beds. Our room was a mile away from the lobby, at the end of a long corridor with lifts and stairs. The WiFi was excellent (even in our... More

The hotel is unique, built in and around a historic city castle. Perfect location for sight seeing, almost everything in walking distance, and the tram just around the corner. The rooms, however, are sleek, modern, and comfortable with amazing beds, walk-in rain showers, and large LED TV. Breakfast is comprehensive, with eggs, sausage, fresh veggies, home made jams, pastries, etc... More

We recently stayed at this hotel while vacationing in Helsinki. Location, breakfast, staff were all great. Room was fresh and comfortable...but a bit stuffy. During our visit, city was experiencing very hot temps. Probably why AC in room couldn't cool it down. Still, we strongly recommend.

The place is a beautiful building and has a lot of potential of being one of Helsinki's nicest hotels. Unfortunately the service at the reception is average (3 star hotels can be better). The worst was the room, for the price asked, we checked into a room that although clean, was in poor condition. The comforter was ripped off, the... More

Set in a beautiful castle like building with a huge wooden door this hotel definitely looks the part. The rooms are the complete opposite, super modern with a well done out bathroom and great shower. The staff were very friendly and gave good advice and location was great. They also offer free umbrellas. A must in Helsinki we discovered!

Very good hotel in a very convenient city centre location. Easy to find and close to many restaurants and attractions. Room on the smaller side but was very comfortable (lovely bed!!), quiet and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent, lots of choice. Sauna was extra cost but a nice relaxing way to complete our stay.

This hotel has a lovely reception area and the staff were very helpful. It is within easy walking distance to the center and you have no need of a taxi to get around as there are plenty of nice restaurants and bars in the center. The rooms we stayed in are in the next building and were a little too... More
