“Excellent choce”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

The hotel is very well located, just four blocks of the central station, trolley go by just around the corner, you have shops, restaurants, bars, and stores for shopping.
Inside the hotel is clean, not so spacious, but functional and beautifully designed.
The room was nice, the only thing a little bit strange for us was that the shower doesn't have doors. Everything was carefully selected, very well decorated. Beds were very comfortable, and the air conditioning was fine. You can't open the windows, and were at the fifth floor looking to Kluuvi Street. Not beautiful view but it was OK.
Service was very efficient and courteous. At front desk were very helpful and precise in their indications for transportation and places to visit.
I recommend to include breakfast in your booking. It is really good, fresh food, bread, hot meals, good coffee, I really enjoyed it.
Everything is very expensive in Finland, so this hotel seems reasonable, although it is expensive as compared with hotels in other countries.
It has a cafeteria with a terrace in the street. They have heaters at tables, so if it not too cold you can enjoy fresh air.

Room Tip: I preferred the rooms looking at Kluuvi Street.

The hotel has a great location, close to Esplanada and has links to public transportation. Enterior is nice, good athmosphere, room was clean and well maintained. Restaurant staff was friendly and quick. Only disappointing point was the long check in and out procedure, should make it quicker.

I spent two nights at the Glo Kluuvi. The room was surprisingly large and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served in the bar and can fill up very quickly. A good hotel for business.

I did enjoy staying at this hotel.
The staff are almost kind and friendly.
But if they had smile I think it 'd get 5 rating from me.
They have a lot of guests at very small reception but never forget thier welcoming smile
at any time.
It 'd usually console an uneasy new guest.
The first inpresson is most important thing to the service industries as you know.
I wish them to understand the real meaning of CS and do concrete action to CS.
it would be 5rating hotel.

Dear itzibitzi,

Thank you for your review! I am quite happy being able to announce about some changes being implemented to the public spaces in the near future! The Smart rooms we have are quite smart indeed and are profoundly designed to serve guest popping into town shortly but still, I understand your concern, too. As we go we are very eager to hear comments regarding them for the future and I appreciate highly about your input! I wish your frequent travels bring you back to us one day and that we can introduce you with the changes as well as more of our varied rooms if you so wish.

Wishing you a happy summer!

Yours Sincerely,

Perttu Kykkänen
Hotel Manager

A lovely positioned Hotel close to Esplanada and with moderne styled rooms.

A full breakfast was provided at a fair price.

Love the layout of the rooms, with dark hardwood and modern furniture - and the employees were very friendly and helped whenever needed.

I wish to go back to a new stay at this hotel

Glo is a perfect hotel for a short stay in Helsinki. The location is easy walking distance from the central train station and just blocks away from all the major city sights and the night life of the esplanadi. The rooms where modern and well equipped with free wifi and a great breakfast Buffett. The rooms are a little higher price than other hotels but you will save lots of time and money being able to walk and avoid taxis which are very expensive in Helsinki. Another big bonus fir us was walking distance to the linda high speed ferry terminal which we took to Tallinn Estonia. Overall great choice of hotel in Helsinki.
