Location is excellent within city center. Rooms a little small but totally modern. Buffet breakfast could have been better but it was adequate and a great time saver. We wheeled our luggage from the central station (having arrived here after 3 and a half hours from St Petersburg via Allegro high speed train); it was doable, about four blocks.

If staying in Helsinki this hotel is always my first choice. It is located in the center of the Town, with walking distance to "everywhere", it has super modern rooms, impressive bathrooms and is very clean. The breakfast is not super great but it is ok - do not miss to try the finnish porridge. It is good for you and make you feel great all the day! Reception staff is great - welcoming and friendly and effective. The check in/check out at this hotel is fast and easy and always with a smile.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The room was very comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. It may have been a touch dark. The bed was very comfortable and there were sufficient blinds to keep the room dark at night in the middle of summer. As with most European hotels, the half partition shower was a bit annoying. The staff were all very friendly. Dining options on site are a bit limited but thankfully there are many very nice restaurants within a 5 minute walk Breakfast buffet was just ok in my opinion but it is easy to walk across the street to Karl Fazer if you want more options. Overall, a fine cost effective option in central Helsinki.

This is our first time here in Helsinki, seems everything interesting are around the hotel. GLO has some bicycles for the guests to use free. I made use of it alot where I went into the more quiet and peaceful neighborhoods, went to the waterfront and to local laundry.
We stayed in a corner room with a lot of windows, which is great with the views, the only downside is many curtains need to be pull before bed.

I stayed in a "Luxe L" room and it was indeed nice and spacious, yet cozy feeling with wooden floors and a small sitting area as well as a big desk. The bathroom was open but behind a wall, so still private, and the toilet was in a separate room with its own sink. Wifi was free and a very good breakfast was included in the price as well. TV had plenty of international channels and my room on the 4th floor had lots of windows with a nice view onto the pedestrian street below. It was really hot in Helsinki but the air conditioning worked great and kept us cool.

The hotel is located within a short walk from basically everything of interest to a tourist, including tons of shopping, bars/restaurants, waterfront, airport bus, train station etc. It is also only a few minutes walk from the tram stop of the #9 tram that departs from the West Harbor (ferry from Tallinn), so is convenient if you arrive that way as I did. Staff were friendly. We also had drinks at the bar one night, which was nice, although service was extremely slow and prices were expensive (although this seems the case in Helsinki generally).

The bed could have used more pillows and the light switches were too numerous and confusing, but otherwise, it was a great room in a perfect location. Based on other reviews, it's definitely worth getting the bigger room if your budget allows.

Hotel Glo, Kluuvi is in a very central location in the center of Helsinki. All the shoppin and pedestrian areas surround the hotel and many attratctions are just a short walk away. The hotel has a nice drink / lobby bar downstairs. The rooms are design hotel style and very cosy. The basic ones are a bit on a small side, on the other hand the business rooms are quite big. Breakfast is superb and well know in the city.
