GLO Hotel Kluuvi Helsinki
Ranked #14 of 66 Hotels in Helsinki
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Glo Hotel is located just a few steps of nice museums, design shops, boutiques, good restaurants and cafes. The central market and the departure point of the ferries to Suomenlinna are just few blocks away walking down the Esplanade. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are very quiet, the bathrooms well designed and quite spacious. Free wi-fi. The breakfast offers everything you could expect, lots of organic food, delicious. The hotel has a very nice bar/café where you can sit at the end of the day and watch the world pass by. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Taxis from and to the airport are quite affordable and sharp on time. Kluuvi street in front of the hotel is pretty much a pedestrian area but the taxis are allowed to drof you off in front of the hotel. Just around the block you will find some of the best design shops in Helsinki.

Room Tip: Rooms at a higher floor may have a more interesting view.

Hotel GLO Kluuvi is attached to the neighboring Hotel Kämp. In case you book a room with the hotel's spa access, it is actually the same shared spa facility with Kämp.

Rooms are very modern and comfortable. You are right in the middle of the city with all sights, shops and restaurants around the hotel. Railway station is about 5-10 min walk away.

Pleasant place to stay. Always a great place to stay. Great location and functional. Great breakfast and pleasant atmosphere. Restaurant is good. But a little pricey a staff could be a little more kind.

A wonderful little hotel right the heart of downtown Helsinki. Close to everything. exceptionally helpful staff. Good food and the world's most comfortable beds.
Don't let the pokey, and often crowded, reception put you off.
everything you can ask for from a city hotel.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a superior room worth it.

Well positioned city center hotel with large rooms in central Helsinki. The breakfast is generous, albeit served in a cramped buffet area but there's lots of choice. Great location for access to shops, the waterfront and good cafes nearby.

Hotel Glo is very conveniently positioned in Helsinki for getting around this magnificent city - rated most liveable. Rooms are very spacious and well designed with all facilities to make for a very comfortable stay. Once again the breakfast included was outstanding with so much healthy choice
I have no hesitation in recommending this property

Room Tip: Is nice to look over the street as it's cute and lots of activity

Great location with only a block to everything. The breakfast was a big disappointment, and I would rate it below avarage! The "design" aspect is over rated, non-Ikea furniture doesn't make it design - this is brown, boring and worn down. The hallway smells like a housing for the elderly. Our first room wasn't cleaned and our second had a water damage.

Dear Mknordstrom,

I am happy you stayed with us and brought your experience into our attention! On the other hand again it is sad to hear neither the breakfast or hotel design did not meet your expectations.

Just between you and me, I can say some improvements was just implemented regarding the breakfast and being such an important factor it has our constant attention - as do all the other services, too. Interesting is one can never know what the future brings along but sure is there is always room for improvements as we go and on our journey all the feedback is appreciated.

Thank you and all the best,

Perttu Kykkänen
