“Possibly the best food I have ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

I stayed for 5 nights - great location - close to everything and food for dinner was possibly the best I have eaten - very imaginative and mostly organic and cooked/prepared on site - apple butter in a tube to die for! Warm bread served on hot stones - I will certainly stay again if back in Helsinki! Service first class - very impressed overall!

I book a single and got a nice room very well furnished.
The breakfast was really good and with different kind of foods.
The only "strange" thing was the extra price for the Sauna €.25 well a little bit high for a kind of national Finnish tradition!
I'll retourn there for sure.

Glo Kluuvi is located in the center of the City very near to almost everything. Shops, muzeums, harbour, points of inerest are all within walking distance. Very good rooms, clean, spacious, and well equipped. Good breakfast, good reastaurant and very good espresso very rare outside Italy and very important to me.

We like to book this particular hotel while travelling to Helsinki.
Very nice location in the very center of the city, close to different places of interest and main shopping area. The well-known Fazer cafe is located in the opposite house.
Breakfast is quite nice, the restaurant is not overcrowded, you can always find the place to sit.
Besides, if you are travelling by car it's more cheap to book a parking space through the hotel, than to pay an average price.

We stayed for 3 nights and were apparently upgraded- the room was quite large but the view was non existent. As stated previously the beds were two singles together with separate quilts but oh so comfy !
Yes , the shower floods the bathroom floor but nothing major , it just drains away - At least it was powerful and warm- the breakfast was pretty rubbish, little choice and in quite a crammed area- a certain member of staff needed a personality by pass but for a clean well equipped hotel , this was ideal for our needs. We checked out the Fabian and although it was very chic , the location wasn't a patch on the Glo.
Despite my negative comments , I would still recommend it.

Spent 2 nights in a deluxe room, spacious, modern, stylish and luxe.
What I was impressed by was that the room actually looked like the picture in the website. Many times other hotels do not like up to their publicity pic images. Bed was comfy, full black out curtains a plus (poor employees across the street were in the office late at night, with all lights on)

The location is also very accessible and convenient. We took a tram to the ferry terminal for a day trip to Talinn in Estonia.
All within walking distance are restaurants, cafes, clubs, retail shops art galleries and other cultural and tourist sites. We walked to a restaurant in the park which served dinner till late.

Only complaint was that the modern design includes a bath area that is not closed off from the rest of the room. Its behind the separating wall. You bathe and step out into the freezing cold. Make sure your turn off your airconditioning first.

Only complaint? The soft toy on the bed wasn't free! Took him home for 23 Euros.

I spent one night in this hotel with my wife after reading very good feedback by other traveler. I booked a deluxe double with breakfast. Upon arrival the room was quite cold and even after increasing the temperature it never got really warm. But the real problem was kept heating on all night and it was very noisy. Otherwise the room was very nice, well furnished and comfortable.

Breakfast was not as good as we expected, it was just ok. Selection of both warm and cold food was very limited for a hotel of this level, practically no fruit and even no yogurt available.
