“Nice suite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. We arrived before the normal check-in time and although our room was not yet ready, they upgraded us to a very nice suite that was ready. That was a pleasant surprise especially since we had booked through expedia.

The furniture and design of the room was very sharp. Bed was comfortable. There was a proper shower with rain fall shower head and fully closing glass door, a plus and something of a rarity.

The location is pretty good, we walked to almost everywhere (most sites and restaurants were within a half mile or so).

Staff was helpful although they did seem a bit busy.

PS. We had lunch at the casual place next door, Jalla Jalla, which was pretty good. Also had dinner at Farang, which was outstanding.

Room Tip: Upgraded suite was nicely appointed, although ours did look out on the 24 hour gym across the street...

After what seemed a long walk from the train station. What a wonderful surprise. This hotel can only be described as outstanding. The lobby was fairly dark and the room seemed a long way from the lobby, but what a room. Very large. Lovely wooden floors. Brilliant shower. Just couldnt fault it. Music was playing from the TV when I arrived. Very welcoming. Lovely comfortable bed. Breakfast was just the best. And the walk back down to the town didnt seem so long when I wasnt struggling with a suitcase. It is a wee walk from town, but not a problem.
Highly recommend this hotel. Free internet in the lobby. Always good. Loved Helsinki too.

Room Tip: I think any room in this hotel would have to be good

Great breakfast. Very clean rooms. Save some euros at the end of the day for a cab because it is a long uphill walk at the end of a busy sightseeing day. The room and shower are a reasonable size and the bed very comfortable.

Lovely hotel. Very cool interior design with funky art pieces displayed. Location was ok and reasonable 10 min walking distance to the centre of the town. The staff were lovely and helpful. The room a decent standard room size. The facilities in the room were good but it did not have a fridge which we always like for a room to have. The bathroom was modern and the shower was great. The wifi in the hotel was fantastic. In fact the wifi in the entire city was amazing - cafes and museums and all such places had great connectivity and all free of charge. The hotel breakfast was fantastic. Great stay. Highly recommend it.

We spent a night in Glo Art during a busy Saturday in Helsinki, but what we found at the hotel was just a stylish and peaceful place. Just as we liked it.

The hotel is less than 15 minutes walk from the train station, nicely located. We had a normal room from the new side of the hotel. The small windows at the corner of the room were facing to the inner yard and didn't provide much to look at, but that's a minor thing in my opinion. Room was top-notch clean, bed were comfortable, bathroom clean. TV had a plug that you can put on your tablet/phone in order to listen to music, nice detail.

One thing must be noted about the bathroom though. The shower wall is glass and facing the main room. It has a blur plastic on it, but basically it gives no cover nor privacy. So, good for couples but quite bad for everyone else. I don't know how it is in the other rooms or parts of the hotel.

There's no minibar, but there's a vending machine nearby. Also, the closest grocery store is just half a minute walk from the reception.

Breakfast was a little dissappointing. It served it's purpose but no surprises, very basic and average.

Staff at the reception were really polite and nice. It gave a nice feeling on the arrival.

Considering the price and quality of room and sleep, I'd recommend this warmly.

Room Tip: At least higher up meant quiet room for us.

I had to stay one night in Helsinki en route to Estonia and chose this hotel because of its location and price and also because of the ambience portrayed on the hotel website. The hotel is actually quite large and does not really have the boutique hotel feel portrayed on the website. Consequently, the breakfast room is quite crowded (even in the early morning) with fairly mannerless hordes of tourists. The rooms are incredibly small - thankfully I was travelling solo, otherwise the room would have been impossibly claustrophobic. The service is good, however, and everything is spotlessly clean. I do not think I would opt to stay here again.

We spent 3 days in Helsinki. The hotel is located 15mn walk from the city center. They put a lot of effort in the design and decoration and it is very nice. But it is a huge hotel and they have a lot of rooms. I think they are concentrating on tour operator groups and not individual travelers. We left at 9:30am and came back at 4pm the room was not cleaned. We had to request our rooms to be cleaned and they did it during diner time.

Be aware the wifi is free for the "dialup" speed. Don t expect to watch a video or Skype. If you want to use it only for email, then it is fine. If you want the high speed connection, you have to pay an extra 10$ per day (I found it a bit misleading since they do not advertise it that way on their website).

Since the breakfast is only starting at 7am, I requested for the last day a breakfast bag. They told me it will be ready. At 6:30am, when we came downstair, no breakfast bag was ready. When I asked about it, they told me they only do it for group...
