“Refreshing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2009

I had read the most recent reviews before booking the hotel and was more than pleased to find that it was the comfortable, trendy, inviting place described! The rate was reasonable and breakfast was included. Some had commented that the breakfast and service was not good in recent weeks, but we found the contrary. In comparison to many of the other hotels we stayed at on this trip, it was slightly better. The rooms were large and comfortable. We were happy with the free wi-fi and the english tv channel selection. The lobby bar was also a fun place to hang out and have a drink. And, right across the street, the greatest sweets/coffees and small bites place - Karl Fazer. Hotel was within walking distance to all the city sites. Would definately recommend.

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect location in "downtown" Helsinki. Hotel GLO is within easy walking distance of multiple major landmarks. Charming neighborhood with great shopping and dining steps away from the front door. Staff was friendly and service was great. Clean, comfortable rooms were a welcome haven. Breakfast buffet was amazing and an excellent way to start each day of our trip.

Hotel is just a few minutes' walk from the harbour, marina and shops. I had a large clean modern room with a sizeable bathroom, a flat screen tv, movie and internet access. Reception staff were efficient and friendly. Nice buffet breakfasts. Only criticism is that the hotel restaurant is a pizzeria in the evening and I received appalling service here, eventually walking out, still hungry, after over an hour of waiting for any food to arrive. Other than that, a great choice for a stay in Helsinki.

This hotel is located near everything and the rooms are very comfortable - we were upgraded to a superior room which was terrific. The price is excellent for Helsinki - breakfast is included and very nice. Staff is quite helpful. Would certainly stay there again.

Stayed here for 3 ights from from 4-7 Sep 09. Staff were friendly, we gt upgraded to a suite which was a very very nice room. Locations is perfect in town, close to shops, sights, tourist infomation, transport (5mins walk to Central Train Terminal) and bars and restaurants. I can't recommend this place enough. Got a great rate with Octopus travel at £80, so can't beat it really at that price!!

In the hotel bar as I write this.

Location is fantastic. In the heart of it. Bars and restaurant at your doorstep!

Services / Amenities. Not much here. Small lobby that integrates with bar. TV in room has a quite a few channels but takes 5 seconds before you see what is on the next channel! Wanted to use the much talked about spa for the steam and sauna room but is not included if you have a standard room. You have to pay an extra €10 per day per person to use this facility.

Got a room with just a shower. I asked if I could get a room with a batch tub as soon as I got to my roo but was told the hotel was fully booked. I was asked at check in if I was on my own. I am sure if I said my wife was joining me I would have got a larger room with a bath tub.

The service from the guy at the bar is fantastic though! Service from other staff far from great. Reception could not even give me change of €50. Looked at me as if it was a strange request.

If you want a nice room and great location and are not too bother with the level of service and facilities this is a great hotel for you. I will be back at Hilton Strand next time if the rate is reasonable as my Gold Hilton card gets my into exec lounge where the service is fantastic!

We spent two nights in hotel Glo and it is a first class hotel in a great location - convenient to all amenties.
Hotel staff were friendly and very helpful
Rooms were spacious and well presented with fbathrobes and slippers etc and free wireless internet
Breakfast was very good with a wide choice

Helsinki is a beautiful city and if I ever return I would certainly not hesitate in staying at Hotel Glo again.
