“Not bad for the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

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 uniform for my liking, all black and chrome and it was hard to see in the bathroom the light did not seem to turn up far enough. Not a very nice view either but the same is true for a lot of city hotels. The bed was very comfortable though and as we only stayed one night I was not too bothered about anything else. If you go to Helsinki take a trip to Tallinn... well worth it.

Good room, clean and modern. Good wifi, though you have to re-log in every 24 hours. Lots of choice at breakfast, though if you're picky about eggs, don't eat the scrambled ones. They're the powdered hotel scrambled ones. Hard boiled are available on the other table.

Showers face into the room with tinted glass. Head and feet are visible but not so much the rest of the body. Fine for couples, though friends might find it a little more uncomfortable.

This is a very good hotel well located 10-15 minutes walk from downtown Helsinki.

After reading other reviews of the hotel we requested a double room that was one up from the smallest size room. The room we stayed in was small but quite functional.

The hotel makes a point of promoting the comfort of its beds, and in our experience this is well justified. The bed were excellent and contributed to us sleeping well throughout our 4 night stay.

The hotel provides an excellent buffet breakfast. This was willingly offered to us outside their normal hours to accommodate our early departure.

Staff were obliging and efficient.

The overall layout of the hotel is a little like a rabbit warren with a number of long narrow corridors.
Happy to recommend the Glo Art Hotel to others looking for well located, comfortable accommodation in Helsinki

Room Tip: If booking for 2 persons request the next room size up from the smallest.

Glo Art is a lovely place at one of the central streets in Helsinki. We were impressed by the design, every detail is so touching and well-thought. Perfect library of antique books downstairs. Interesting furniture and light. Beautiful ceilings in the main building. We stayed in the adjacent one. The room is not large, but ok. All needed facilities available. Good choice for breakfast.
All in all, a good place to stay and enjoy the summer city. Price is reasonable for Helsinki.
Thanks to the staff. Would love to come back!!

I stayed here for 4 nights with my partner for his birthday.

The hotel is so beautiful. The reception area is lovely with seating areas shared with the bar.

We had a good sized room in the new building. The bed was comfy although I am used to more pillows.

Our bathroom door jammed a few days in, it was never fixed although it was acknowledged by staff. The bathroom doesn't give much privacy, but not being able to close the door for 2 days was a bit awkward.

The hotel is in a great location. We wanted something quiet but close to attractions and found we could walk most places.

Considering the bars and restaurants local to us the hotel bar was responsibly priced, although we never ordered food.

Overall we loved our stay, but the bathroom door could have been resolved quicker...or at all.

The old-styled building hosting the hotel entrance appears as a surprise in between the modern buildings nearby Kamppi area. After entering, first sight is for the nice old small hall and really cool living area on the room aside, then moving to the guestrooms area of the hotel modernity comes by, showing brand new refurbished hallways. The room we were was simply gorgeous, stylish, modern, functional and cozy. Everything worked perfectly, room service was perfectly performed and caring. Nevertheless, don't forget to include the bathroom slippers and robe set in your reservation, as they also work perfectly. All of the hotel Staff was absolutely kind and supporting for every request.
Breakfast was included in our room price and worth it, as it was a perfect quality mix with continental and scandinavian tastes.
Considering the nice and relaxing mood of this city, this hotel provides the perfect completion for your stay. Kiitos to everybody!

Room Tip: Road side rooms preferrable
