“Best stay in Helsinki so far! Read about the rooms...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Don't let the medieval looks deceive you, this is one of the best hotels I've stayed at in the Nordics.
The entrance and the lobby bar is ok, the Tom Dixon lights in the monastery like decoration look a bit out of place but the atmosphere was great and we enjoyed a nightcap in comfy sofas each night.
Breakfast buffet was great, not amazing varieties but far than enough and everything tasted great. Good bread, good cereals, good juices etc.
And now to the best part, the rooms.
I stayed in a newer part of the hotel in the back.
The rooms are just perfect, pretty small but perfect for a business trip, maybe on the smaller side for a romantic weekend.
Really quiet, clean and cozy. The beds and the pillows are some of the best I've had in my trips, I think I have never had such a good nights sleep. I really enjoyed the small work table in the corner, managed to do a lot of job there between meetings.
No broadband and damaged iron board are my only complaints.
The location is another small issue, no problem if you are on business but a bit far from the central on foot. Still lots of restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.
For a more central location I recommend Glo Kluuvi.
I highly recommend this hotel!

The Glo Art hotel is about a ten minute walk from Helsinki central train station. It is a short enough walk if you know where your going but tram 6 or a taxi will take you there if you dont. The hotel is an old castle so as you can imagine it is a beautiful building. We stayed in the economy room which was quite small , the shower is small along with the wardrobes but if you are only staying for a few days its fine. Having said this the rooms are beautiful all decor has had great thought put into it. They rest of the hotel is also spotlessly clean. A trip to the restaurant is also a must. It is located underneath the hotel which was probably an old cellar. It definetly adds a lot of character to the evening. The staff couldnt have been nicer and were willing to help you wiyh any problems that you might have. Also i must say that i have never had a nights sleep in any other hotel like i did this in this one. There wasnt a noise in the hotel at night time. All of the shopping centres restaurants and bars are just a 5 minute walk away from tne hotel so it is in a great location.

Glo Hotel Art (previous name Linna) is a nice design hotel, located in a city center, 15 min by foot to the market square. Super breakfasts and comfortable rooms. The only shortcoming was a bathroom, as the cab is made of glass so you can easily see person taking a shower.
Definitely recommended to stay here!

Very friendly and eager staff, Checking out I received Breakfast at the reception: Coffee, fresh warm croissants, fruit: at 4:30 a.m.!
Stylish interieur, good mixtur of classic architecture and state of the art interieur in the rooms.
Great: Business corner including printer, Nice !
When paying taxi at the airport the hotel had arranged, I found fare was lower as usual due to hotel agreement
Just two minor recommendations: tea cups in the room should have a handle, the ones now get to hot to hold; I missed small bowls at breakfast buffet, jam made messy plate.

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.
