The picture looks better than the hotel

Room very small, no bath, no fridge, they wanted 18euros for buffet breakfast per day. It did have an ironing board. Miles to walk to rooms through about 6 locked doors. Staff nice until you ask them to do anything. About same standard as a UK premier Inn.

Quirky, quaint and close enough to be handy

The Glo Art is spread between two buildings with the lane to the parking dividing them. As one has to cross this lane to get from reception to the breakfast room and the coffee & cold drinks dispensing machines it can be quite a shock to go from 20 degees to 3 degrees (C not F) for a few steps. A stiff breeze can blow through here too. It was over 350 steps from our room (plus two rides in different lifts) to get a coffee which was not still hot by the time we got back to our room (where the chocolate was waiting). There needs to be a coffee machine etc in both buildings (I think). The front door is impressive!!! with its studded oak and wrought iron hinges! But its up four steps (with no ramp) and designed to stay closed - not good when we both had luggage to get into the foyer which was up another two steps once inside the front door. Others have mentioned the smallness of the rooms but we didn't find that a problem (not even the closeness of the toilet to the side wall & the placement of the toilet roll). We would definitely stay here again.

very small room

As a single traveller I'm used to being allocated small rooms - but this was a double room and it wasn't big enough for one person! There was no space to put my (one) bag - it had to go on the bed. it was not possible to walk past the end of the bed - sideways only! cupboards also too small to be useful. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was OK. Breakfast was good, but bar food was poor.

Modern and comfortable

We stayed at the GLO Hotel Art for a weekend in October. We had a superior room, which was very nice. The room was modern, spacious, very comfortable and quiet. The hotel seems to be renovated recently, and everything was fresh and clean. Large bed. Bathroom was great, with a large walk-in shower "room". The locations is quite central, just a 10 minutes walk to the main shopping areas. There are several good restaurants just by the hotel as well. Weenjoyed the breakfast buffet, wish had a rich selection of food and drinks. All in all, a great hotel!

Best for Singles and Short Stays

Beautiful hotel with polite and helpful staff, at reception and in the restaurant. Room looked modern but was not very comfortable in terms of space. We stayed in a smart room and were forewarned that it would be small. We could not move around comfortably, had nowhere to really open our suitcases and had to shuffle to navigate around the bed. Typical touches not included such as body lotion, facial tissues, mini bar however there was a coffee and vending machine on level 3. Electronically adjustable bed was a highlight!

Great Affordable and Interesting Hotel

Excellent location for an affordable hotel in Helsinki. The staff was just great, giving us a tour of the 100 year old building (which has been renovated and updated).

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Salve -- great local place with Finnish food. Been around for more than a century and that's where the locals go.

Very good value, great hotel!

We went to Helsinki for a short city break. The hotel was a 10 minute walk from the train station. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was modern and comfortable with a great shower! It was very quiet and a good location with plenty of restaurants within a short walk. Breakfast was the usual continental type with a variety of breads, cheese, ham, porridge, museli, croissants etc and was very tasty. For an extra charge you could order omlettes and scrambled eggs. Overall we thought this hotel was very good value for money and would stay there again.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

If it's very cold or wet in Helsinki, they have an extensive underground shopping area where you can stay warm and still shop!!

The hotel does not meet the standards

The hotel does not meet the standards of a four star hotel. The (single) rooms are not much bigger than cells. In the bathroom, there is no proper shower and the water goes all over the floor. They only leave one single towel. It is hard to understand how they can charge 150 Euro a night for one person.
