“Careful about the square footages”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My wife and I booked the standard double room. Based on the square footage for the "smart double room" on the hotel web site, I expected a sleeping area about the size of our master bedroom at home. However, the square footage includes EVERYTHING, including the bathroom. The double bed was very comfortable but to access the side of the bed away from the doorway required a sideways shuffling around the bed, or climbing over the other person. There is nowhere to sit except on the bed. Book a larger style of room if you want a chair. There is an OK reading room off the lobby with English language newspapers, a great breakfast, and complimentary WiFi. Very quiet nights, and effective curtains, so we slept great even during the white nights. Very convenient to the bus station.

Room Tip: The square footages on the hotel web site include the bathroom and entryway.

I got my room for less than 100 euro which I think is a fabulous price for this hotel. the room was large, comfortable,and well appointed. my rate didn't include breakfast which was fine. the market building is undergoing renovations and has relocated right down the street from the hotel. 4€ for breakfast there, surrounded by Finns. my favorite part about the hotel was the 5€ day bike rental. you got the bike til midnight and they we comfortable, have a lock, and come with a helmet if you wish. reserve early as its first come first served.

I booked this hotel for my solo trip to Helsinki. I booked the smart room and it was small. It's enough for one person but I can imagine how crowded and uncomfortable it would be if two person were to share the room. Other than that, the location of the hotel is awesome. Just around 15 minutes walk from the train station and around 10 minutes walk from the Central Bus Station. The stay was a cosy one although one thing I would prefer is that the bathroom should be bigger. Other than that, clean and cosy. I would go back here again if I ever visit Helsinki again.

Room Tip: Get the normal rooms if you want more space. Solo travelers can opt for the Smart rooms.

The Glo Hotel Art is situated 250m down a side street from the main area of the centre of Helsinki, close to all different kinds of attractions and well positioned to be able to visit most of the city on foot. Its " art " style design is very good, staff friendly and you will be very pleased with this hotel as a base for the time you spend in Helsinki.

Room Tip: Rooms in the new block are more modern than the old block but either type has its encanto. All rooms...

In a quiet location but close enough to everything.
Minus points-
We had a ground floor room overlooking carpark so felt we had no privacy even though there were nets at windows.
Room was hot even though it says there is air conditioning (no controls in room).
Cleaning of the room could've been better.

Plus points-
Good breakfast with plenty of choice.
Decent wifi plus computer and printer for guest use.
Nice quiet location.
Excellent sleep menu with things like pillow spray, choice of pillows and earplugs.
Reception and breakfast room staff all excellent.
Very good bathroom.

All in all a good hotel certainly worth staying in.

The staff here are super helpful. The hotel is located in the art district. It is very easy to get to where you want to go. Smart rooms are small but you can upgrade to a larger room for about 15 euros.
We will stay here again.
