The look of the hotel was lovely from the outside. The interiors are unique and pleasant to the eyes. Rooms however needed a bit more to toiletries- like toothpaste, and space.
The windows were great, I could open the windows and smell the fresh air. The hotel guarantees you a good nights sleep- they right. The beds are comfortable and the pillows were just right. Reception gives you a selection of pillows.
The toilets are small, but it's typical in Finland. The toilet didn't have a fan extractor so airation didn't work well. There is a mini radiator that I could use to dry some of my small garments. Location is ideal. It is away from the busy streets and there are nearby shops (pharmacy, mini-market tattoo parlours and restaurants) that are within walking distance. Around the corner, there is a flea market too.
The staff were Smiley, beautiful and friendly. However, management could inject more staff. I saw why you couldn't because your reception desk is small. Glo art is a popular hotel- there were lots of people checking in. Having extra staff may benfit.
Breakfast was worth it. I loved the salmon and the homemade jams.
It's a convenient hotel to stay in and enjoy the interior design. It's great to stay for a few days- but not long stays.
