“Perfect in everyway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This hotel is truly superb. The breakfast is some of the best we have eaten anywhere in the world! Staff are very helpful. Will definitely stay here again! Our upgraded room is super. The electric bed is fun to play with! The double shower makes for fun also!!

This is an ideal location for a visit to Helsinki. You can walk to it from the Railway Station (worth a visit in its own right) where the Finnair bus drops you. Shops, restaurants, museums and sights are all close by. Café Fazer with its tempting cakes is opposite. The rooms vary in size; some of the smaller ones may feel a bit cramped and have shower only. I noticed that the heavy desk chairs were leaving gouges in the wood floor - that needs addressing. We had two stays separated by a few days. Our second room was larger with a bath & shower, and, although exactly the same concept as our previous smaller room, felt more 'designer'. Anyway, it is a comfortable place, excellent buffet breakfast, which can get a bit crowded; friendly, helpful reception. Hard to beat on convenience. It must, however, be the only hotel in the world that doesn't provide a box of tissues in the bathroom. Or a face cloth.

Room Tip: Bigger rooms better.

I spent MANY hours looking for the "right" hotel for our short 3 night visit to Helsinki. Location, good price and overall appearance is what matters most. This hotel has all 3! The room we were given was small in comparison to some I've seen online, but really, you don't spend that much time in the room. The bathroom had great counter space but a stupid sink. Stupid because it was up higher than a typical sink and it was also shallow so when you wash your hands or face, water sprays everywhere, including your clothes. Annoying. The hotel was clean, quiet & efficient. Breakfast was included and its a typical European spread - breads, cheeses, veggies, fruit, fish, beans, eggs, hot & cold cereal, and yogurt - something for everyone. If I were to visit Helsinki again, I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the street, not the roof!

Glo Hotel is located just a few steps of nice museums, design shops, boutiques, good restaurants and cafes. The central market and the departure point of the ferries to Suomenlinna are just few blocks away walking down the Esplanade. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are very quiet, the bathrooms well designed and quite spacious. Free wi-fi. The breakfast offers everything you could expect, lots of organic food, delicious. The hotel has a very nice bar/café where you can sit at the end of the day and watch the world pass by. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Taxis from and to the airport are quite affordable and sharp on time. Kluuvi street in front of the hotel is pretty much a pedestrian area but the taxis are allowed to drof you off in front of the hotel. Just around the block you will find some of the best design shops in Helsinki.

Room Tip: Rooms at a higher floor may have a more interesting view.

Hotel GLO Kluuvi is attached to the neighboring Hotel Kämp. In case you book a room with the hotel's spa access, it is actually the same shared spa facility with Kämp.

Rooms are very modern and comfortable. You are right in the middle of the city with all sights, shops and restaurants around the hotel. Railway station is about 5-10 min walk away.

Pleasant place to stay. Always a great place to stay. Great location and functional. Great breakfast and pleasant atmosphere. Restaurant is good. But a little pricey a staff could be a little more kind.

A wonderful little hotel right the heart of downtown Helsinki. Close to everything. exceptionally helpful staff. Good food and the world's most comfortable beds.
Don't let the pokey, and often crowded, reception put you off.
everything you can ask for from a city hotel.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a superior room worth it.
