A nice hotel in good location but don't be fooled by the gothic building. Once past reception you are ANNEXED via a corridor to another totally different building. What is it with this trend ? More and more hotels seem to annex you to another building. How long before you step on a conveyer belt to another part of the... More

I stayed here in August on two separate occasions and was therefore able to experience two different rooms. The first on the ground floor was larger and more comfortable, while the other on the 3rd floor was a "smart" double that felt extremely cramped. The staff did warn me it was "compact". But the worst aspect of both rooms was... More

Large hotel but feels friendly and intimate. Inbetween ferry port and city centre and close to Helsinki's art and design district. Interesting nordic arts and craft architecture in the public areas and modern quality in the private rooms. We arrived in the late afternoon and disappointingly as the hotel was full we were given a small room which was only... More

I was told that the standard rooms are too small, but i had the comfort room and it was nice. The breakfast is delicious with reasonably good choice of food, very good coffee. Water bottle in the room costs 3 eur but one bottle was provided complimentary. There is approx 30 min walk to the centre. Check out 1pm upon... More

Having checked out a lot of hotels for a short trip to Helsinki we decided to stay in the glo art which looked lovely which in fairness it is, the reception area looks great if not a little dark. The staff are great can't fault them at all helpful, polite and always had the answer to my questions. They even... More

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.
