“Excellent Hotel Right in Center of Helsinki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

I stayed for two nights at Hotel GLO Kluuvi. Upon checkin, I was upgraded without even needing to ask to a deluxe spa class room. This gave me free access to the sauna. The room was spotless and one of the largest rooms I've had anywhere in Europe.

My biggest complaint about hotels is that there is never an electrical outlet in the bathroom. There were at least 3 outlets in the bathroom.

The hotel is steps away from the promenade and within easy walking distance of Senate Square, the harbor, and the old market house.

Excellent location, in the heart of the city center. Very good value for what is on offer. Breakfast was good, but I've had better. The room was modern, not very big but OK I guess. I will gladly stay again here in the future.

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend with my wife and son (1½ yrs), and we were very pleased with the hotel. We were a bit disappointed not to be able to check in when we arrived at 1pm, but ok, official check in is at 2pm, which is quite generous in comparison to many other hotels.

We had booked a larger room (think it was called deluxe room), in order for there to be a bit more space when we were three people to bit fit into the room. That was a good choice, we had a separate section for me and my wife and my son could sleep in a crib in a somewhat secluded corner. That was a good thing, so we were able to watch tv after my son went to bed. Everything in the room seemed brand new, and the decor was in general very nice. Only negative was the lack of a door between the bathroom and the main room. That was a bit annoying and a bit too contemporary for my taste.

The hotel staff was kind enough to get us a DVD player so we had a toddler pacifier in the room ;) A nice touch, although acitivities for children and in scarce supply at this hotel to say the least.

As other reviewers have noted, breakfast is not too impressive. The variety of options and the quality of the food should be improved - this is an easy task. I get more and more annoyed about hotels taking the easy way out of something that was already easy when done right - scarmbled eggs for instance. I don't like the fact that hotels are never able to make them taste even half as good as when you do them yourselves. Make an effort. Anyways, that must be considered an aside.

I would definately recommend this hotel to anybody, especially for the location and also for the reasonably good value compared to quality.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and pick a deluxe room.

The Glo Kluuvi Hotel in Helsinki is one hotel that deserves to be labelled a ‘boutique’ hotel.
The word ‘Boutique’ is a becoming a sweeping statement for hotels that attempt to minimise expense by becoming minimal, not for aesthetic reasons but more for economic. They can hide old veneers by splashing around brightly coloured paint to disguise what they actually lack in amenities and service.
The Glo is none of these. From the friendly and attentive staff to the well appointed, spacious, stylish rooms, the Glo stands out in a class of its own.
Not to be missed when in Helsinki.

Rooms are fantastic, very modern and well equipped with many optional (free) extras. Always clean although sometimes maid service forgot the small details. Breakfast was average, not quite befitting the cost with small choice. Reception staff either brusk or rude as opposed to the warm welcome you would expect. A small gripe however.

This is a wonderful hotel with large, clean, comfortable rooms in the heart of the city. The decor is Scandinavian modern with whimsical touches - like the stuffed tiger on the bed. The staff was uniformly pleasant and helpful, even when I checked in at midnight. Breakfast buffet was small but with plenty of the usual choices. This is a hotel not to be missed for comfort, location and value in Helsinki.

Very pleasant, if short (1 night), stay in the end of June 2011.

Stayed in an impressive Deluxe room facing the pedestrian Kluuvikatu. The rooms are huge and very nicely decorated. The location in the city center is perfect, within walking distance of the train station or the harbour.

One minus is the breakfast. For the price of the room, I expected more than a quite standard scandinavian breakfast buffet.
