Great location, which in Helsinki can be in any hotel. Everything can be reached by foot. Design modern room but minuscule.
Friendly staff but don't expect anyone to open the entrance door for you if you are with baggages. Good luck with that.
Awesome sleep!!! Breakfast was just ok, keep your expectations low..

Comfortable and modern hotel which is nice to stay in. Liked the disposition of the room which was nice, I would've liked to have had an italian shower considering the decoration of the bathroom, but that is personal taste.
The room service is a bit expensive I find, and the service just ok. All in all I slept pretty well and felt comfortable in this hotel. Well located also.

Friendly staff, clean, good size and nice room. Location is very nice, close to heart of Helsinki. Good breakfast with warm bread, porridge, scramble eggs, cheese, cereals, fruits etc.
We recommend this "castle" to anyone.

2 nights in the renovated part with good rooms and good location. Walking distance to Main Street Mannerheim street. Did not try the restaurant, but lobby was in traditional style with nice personnel in the reception.

Upon arriving at the GLO art we received a very warm welcome from the staff at reception. I must say that their English was of a very high standard. The room was beautifully presented and very clean. The decor was very modern which certainly impressed my partner. The only limitations to the room are the size and the bathroom. We stayed in the standard room which is very small indeed, just about enough room between the end of the bed and the wall to scoot along. We were warned about this upon arrival (there was nothing online) and informed that we could upgrade for 15 Euros a night.
The bathroom was very in tune with Finnish attitudes towards nudity! It consisted of a tinted glass box built in the corner of the room, it was not a separate room and it was clearly see-through. I could watch the television in the shower, through the "wall" over my partner's head. Therefore, it is not suitable for families especially those with teenage children.
Breakfasts were of a good standard. The buffet style service was good and is what is accepted from a hotel of this standard.
But a fantastic location in a wonderful city, a good base for wider exploration.

Room Tip: It could be worth booking a more expensive room.

Fantastic hotel, great character, spotless, nice rooms. Staff lovely. Food great. Not far from the rest of the city. Lots of nooks and crannies where you can read, relax and pass the time of day. Would recommend this hotel to anyone either on business or holiday.

Beautiful rooms and gorgeous architecture. Very charming and sophisticated hotel. I love staying here! The location is good right in the design district of town. Only drawback for the bacon lovers is that there is no bacon on the breakfast buffet.
