“Love this hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Stayed for a night at the Glo Art hotel. The reception is a bit dark but the staff are really friendly and accommodating. They kept the kitchen open for me as I arrived late. The room was small but perfectly formed. I loved the adjustable bed. Great shower and comfortable all around. Will definitely stay there again.

If you are travelling with someone who you don’t mind see showering, and whose toilet noises do not bother you, then the standard rooms here might be worth a consideration. Despite their miniature size, the design influenced rooms are brand new and have cool lighting, and the hotel itself is within 10 minutes walk from the city center. No need to get the breakfast offer though (they WILL try to sell it to you nevertheless), as it’s average at best.

Helsinki is expensive... so that would probably be the theme of any review I wrote, no matter what hotel I stayed. We stayed here for 1 night only, and I had no complaints, really. Hotel room was modern and clean. We had a clogged drain, but the staff came and fixed it right away. Other than that it was an uneventful stay. Seemed like an ok location, although it was west of most of the main attractions.

Not sure if I would stay here again, I think I would find something cheaper, even if it wasn't as nice.

This Helsinki hotel is quite new, but we found that the rooms were too small for us. Not enough space for 2 luggages. If you have heavy stuff and arrive to the central station as many others, it is a challenge to walk up the hill approx. 20 mins to reach the hotel. Be sure you connected free internet option otherwise you could be charged 10 euros for the same but "more speed" (really?=) Staff is nice, it is Europe!

The hotel is pretty unique looking and the room was small but nice; Very modern type of room; the Breakfast was pretty good and the people were nice. The location was a few blocks away from the main street. Kind of a self-service type of hotel--not a lot of assistance from people for bags, etc., and no room service. Was real warm in the room too and needed the housekeeper to open the windows. A decent place all in all.

Stayed here for 3 nights with business.

One of the better hotels that I have stayed in in Helsinki and would have got 5 out of 5 for not the constant 'extras' like better wifi / bottle of water in room / bacon at breakfast.

Having said that as long as you are savvy then no issues what so ever. Breakfast apart from the bacon was good and varied - proper orange juice which for me is always a test of how good a hotel is.

Good location within walking distance to some excellent cheap restaurants and cafes, and about 10 mins from the main Station - get the Finnair bus from the airport for only €6.30 and walk.

This hotel looked amazing from the outside. One of the best looking hotels I have ever seen. The staff spoke great English and were helpful. Unfortunately we took a taxi to the hotel from the airport and it cost so so much. We wouldn't do that again. It's in a pretty good location although a bit closer would have been nice! We are staying there 1 more night as a transfer later in our holiday and am pretty disappointed that they will not transfer the booking to their sister hotel which is at the airport. They said its because we didn't book directly. Our travel agent did. Not a good enough excuses. Inside the room it was lovely. Extremely extremely small but we didn't mind at all. It was very modern and lovely. Breakfast was underground it was awesome. Although I ended up eating toast with butter not a lot for my taste but my husband loved it.
