“Small but cosy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I booked this hotel for my solo trip to Helsinki. I booked the smart room and it was small. It's enough for one person but I can imagine how crowded and uncomfortable it would be if two person were to share the room. Other than that, the location of the hotel is awesome. Just around 15 minutes walk from the train station and around 10 minutes walk from the Central Bus Station. The stay was a cosy one although one thing I would prefer is that the bathroom should be bigger. Other than that, clean and cosy. I would go back here again if I ever visit Helsinki again.

Room Tip: Get the normal rooms if you want more space. Solo travelers can opt for the Smart rooms.

The Glo Hotel Art is situated 250m down a side street from the main area of the centre of Helsinki, close to all different kinds of attractions and well positioned to be able to visit most of the city on foot. Its " art " style design is very good, staff friendly and you will be very pleased with this hotel as a base for the time you spend in Helsinki.

Room Tip: Rooms in the new block are more modern than the old block but either type has its encanto. All rooms...

In a quiet location but close enough to everything.
Minus points-
We had a ground floor room overlooking carpark so felt we had no privacy even though there were nets at windows.
Room was hot even though it says there is air conditioning (no controls in room).
Cleaning of the room could've been better.

Plus points-
Good breakfast with plenty of choice.
Decent wifi plus computer and printer for guest use.
Nice quiet location.
Excellent sleep menu with things like pillow spray, choice of pillows and earplugs.
Reception and breakfast room staff all excellent.
Very good bathroom.

All in all a good hotel certainly worth staying in.

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.
