The staff here are super helpful. The hotel is located in the art district. It is very easy to get to where you want to go. Smart rooms are small but you can upgrade to a larger room for about 15 euros.
We will stay here again.

Part of the GLO hotel group. As good as the other Glo hotel inHelsinki.
Super fresh, recently renovated and modern and clean rooms.
Very quiet room, mine faced onto an inner courtyard.
In a great location, 5 mins from the metro and the central transport point.
Split into two buildings so a bit of a walk to your room via many doors. The less mobile should ask for a room nearer the hotels heart.
Nice underground breakfast room.
Average breakfast, if picky cooked options were a bit limited as was the croissants type offerings etc. Perfectly acceptable though.
Will stay again when visiting Helsinki, this or the other Glo hotel each time.

Room Tip: Less mobile guest should ask for a room closer to reception. Quiet rooms face the inner courtyard.

The older part of the hotel was originally a student union building of the early 1900s but looks even older. Do not miss the tiled fireplaces which are reportedly still used in winter. The rooms, to the contrary, are very modern but a little too small especially when you have a couple of suitcases. The most comfortable bed we have ever encountered even giving us a room at 7am. Good breakfast as part of the tariff and very courteous and efficient staff who enjoy being helpful. Would definitely rate this hotel higher if we had a larger larger rooms. II'd definitely bee happy to stay there again

Room Tip: The sixth floor requires a lot more effort to get to and from so best to avoid if you have more than...

A relatively new hotel in the design district within easy walking distance of central Helsinki. The room was beautiful and well designed -- the bed was very comfortable and the lighting was excellent. It faced an interior courtyard, so street noise was minimal. The staff spoke good English and was very helpful with directions and recommendations. Great shower! Reasonable value by European standards.

My wife and I stayed at the Helsinki Glo Art for 3 nights in June. The hotel is an excellent value in a generally expensive city and overall our experience was very positive. The staff was efficient and friendly. Our room was very comfortable with lots of hi-tech touches and an excellent bed. Breakfast was very good with extended hours on the weekend and lots of well presented choices. The location was satisfactory as well, just a 10-minute walk to the Esplanade in the center of the city. The only slight negative about the GLO Art is the physical lay-out of the property. It is actually two hotels - the old historical building that contains the lobby and a modern building with the majority of the guests rooms. The buildings are separated by a little roadway that leads to an inner courtyard and access to the modern wing requires multiple uses of your guest key-card and numerous sliding and swinging doorways, some electronic. It's not a big deal, but it was unusual and a little annoying on occasion. Still, I would recommend the GLO Art and stay here again if visiting Helsinki.

The hotel is a replica of a castle when you enter, dark and feeling like you stepped back into history. Staff kind, efficient and friendly.
The rooms are quite state-of-the-art, hi-tech.
The room we stayed in for one night was very very small, but comfortable. The bed was comfortable.
The bathroom was great.
Buffet breakfast was good, well done and presented.
