Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My daughter and I spent 4 days at the Glo-Art Hotel and we really enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The staff are courteous and extremely helpful, and guided us with directions and the use of public transport together with recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants. Everything we asked for, they accommodated fully. Our bed was very comfortable and our room was kept super clean. Fantastic!

We had a room on the 6th floor and felt like Marco Polo trying to find our way there! :) Soooo many corridors, lifts, stairs. Also a nasty smell of school canteen and cabbage in the main stairway which runs through the whole building. The room itself was very clean and tidy but quite small and overlooking a rooftop. Bed was comfortable and bathroom and shower very good. Unfortunately you could not adjust the air conditioning at all so the room was a bit stuffy for me.

Service in reception was excellent and very friendly. Breakfast does not even deserve a mention in my opinion. The cellar setting of the restaurant was way too dark and claustrophobic for me and the food on offer was below average and cold (even the supposedly hot dishes). But all in all, the one night stay on a weekend with a major event in town, it was value of money to stay at this location within walking distance of the city centre.

This hotel was one of the last to open after a corona break. From the opening sale, we booked a GLO Luxe room for 94 euros including breakfast.

Our stay had a very good value. We could use my Nordic Choice Platinum restaurant coupon of 13 euros in the lobby bar. At the moment, the restaurant serves only breakfast.

The rooms are modern and practical. Our stylish room had a Marimekko theme.

However, the most interesting part of this hotel is the public areas in the old Art Nouveau castle from 1903. The lobby and the staircase are so beautiful.

We stayed here for just a one night but the experience was great. Our room rate seemed relatively average for Helsinki, but it came with breakfast in the morning and it was only about a 15 minute walk from the train station. Our room was quite compact (standard european sizing) which isn't a problem for us, but we did have 1 large bag which was a bit tough to find space for. The bathroom was nice and wifi was strong. The bed was comfy and featured a motorized system that allowed you to adjust the leg and head position. Definitely helpful in a small room where there isn't any extra space, so helped for watching tv. Definitely a quiet location, did not hear any noise from the street or from within the hotel. Would recommend if you can find a good price and don't have too much luggage.

The main building of this hotel is a charming Art deco style. However, not all of it is as charming. Many rooms are to be found in an unprepossessing annex with a tortuous path from reception. Rooms can be very small. I am sure there are more comfortable than mine, but it was Design Week when I visited and room prices were sky high, so the room I thought was reasonably priced was tiny. Fine for one and fine with no luggage, but even for one with a suitcase of moderate proportions, my room was a tight fit. There was minimal hanging space and without a wardrobe my bag filled all the floor space between the bed and the window. However, bathroom was fine and shower very nice. Bed was also comfortable and large.
Staff were faultlessly pleasant and breakfast buffet is very good.

The location is excellent. The building is charming, but unpractical to function as a hotel. It was a labyrinth to find the elevator, you have to open many different doors and walk through many sinuous corridors.

We received two keys. The first key did not work anywhere at all, the second key stopped working after two days. The friendly staff gave us a new key and said that this happens on a daily basis because the keys malfunction very often.

The room was clean and spacious, and had nice furniture and modern TV. In the room there was the weird smell of a sweaty dog. The air conditioning did not seem to work, luckily it was not hot outside. The bed was the worst part of the hotel: squeaky, way too soft and not flat at all. During the summer the curtains will not keep the room dark enough in the morning. The sink in the bathroom started willing with water. The bathroom was also clean and spacious, and its walls were made of frosted glass.

The breakfast selection was wide and excellent, and there were also healthy options to choose from. The basement floor where breakfast was served was cramped and tables were close to each other. You cannot go and eat breakfast whenever you feel like it in the morning. When you check in the staff will ask you what time you will eat breakfast, you can choose for instance 8.00-8.45 or 8.45-9.30. They do this because there aren't enough tables for all customers at the same time.

When we checked out we asked if we can leave our luggage for a couple of hours somewhere within the hotel because we had some extra time before our train would leave. We thought the staff would put some label on the luggage and take it to a locked room, but the staff pointed to a door behind a corner, and then we were ignored. We were confused. We opened the UNLOCKED door and saw luggage without labels. We did not leave our luggage there.

Unfortunately we don't have the luggage room service but we have taken this in consideration when we will renovate the hotel rooms later this year.

The reception is in a beautiful Art Nouveau castle from 1903. Hotel rooms are located in two newer wings.

There was a lucrative January Sale -40%. So we paid only 185 euros for our suite.

The room was not ready on arrival at 15:00. We were offered glasses of champagne while waiting for the room cleaning to be ready. Also, we got two drink vouchers for the bar.

The only suite in the hotel is located on the 2nd floor with views of the street and the gym on the other side of the street.

The suite is more like a junior suite. The sitting group, the bathroom and a small separate toilet are on the lower level. The four-poster bed is four steps above. The room is stylishly decorated with Marimekko textiles. There are separate rain shower and bathtub which is always nice.

The breakfast is served in the basement restaurant. The food selection was good.

The hotel is situated in a rather uninspiring street, although there are quite a few inexpensive eating options close by. The reception is rather dark but the reception staff are very welcoming and helpful. Our room was a little disappointing and very cluttered. It was very difficult to find anywhere to put our two suitcases. Not a great fan of having the toilet roll under your armpit when sat on the toilet either.
Breakfast was served in the basement which we thought might be gloomy but was quite pleasant. The selection was fine. Our tip is instead of walking down the busy street that the hotel is in, if you are going into the centre of Helsinki, is to cut through to the boulevard which runs parallel. It is much more pleasant to walk down, you can also catch a tram into the centre here and there are some interesting places to eat as well. Can’t comment on the value for money as we stayed here as part of a package but realise that hotels in Helsinki are expensive. Perhaps we had hoped for a little more from a four star but maybe that was unrealistic. We were rather concerned that our luggage was left in an unlocked room all day after we checked out of our room until we left to go to the airport.

I have visited this hotel a few times before. Now after the corona lockdown again. Still, the hotel’s bed, duvets and pillows ensure a perfect night’s sleep. Blackout curtains keep the light out. It was calm in the middle of the week, there were no noises in the hallway.
Breakfast with jams and pancakes was great. The space where breakfast is served is in the beautiful 1800's basement. The only downside was the extra 2 euros for espresso. Of course, almost all hotels in Finland do not have oportuntynite for it.
I"ll visit Glo Art again when I need accomodation in Helsinki.

Warm welcome, friendly staff, great food! The rooms were nice. Glass doors on the bathroom is a little awkward for twin rooms though... Art nouveau is an interesting style. Using the room cards at almost every door is a bit disturbing.

HI, you need to get to the trainstation and get on the L train towards Kirkkonummi. At the trainstation (or with the HSL mobile app) you need to buy yourself a regional ticket or SEUTULIPPU.
