This hotel is in downtown, but slightly off the beaten path. It is a lovely old castle that was converted into a hotel. The rooms are small but modern and very comfortable with gorgeous design. The hotel configuration is a bit strange in that you enter through the old castle part, but need to use key to go through many doorways in other buildings to get to your room. It's a conglomeration of buildings, turned into a hotel

We were very happy with the service. Staff were wonderful and friendly. Check in was efficient and service requests were accommodated quickly.

Fantastic atmosphere in (what was called) Hotel Linna. So impressed with the hotel (good location, friendly staff and not too expensive for Helsinki) recommended it to friends also. The candle lit breakfast room in the basement is just amazing!

We went to Helsinki from the 17th of May 'till the 20th of May and we had a great stay at the Glo Hotel. It's perfectly located in the center of the city, at 5 min from the train station, in a quiet street.
The Deluxe room are spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom is nice and spacious too.
The breakfast is nice, has the minimum required.
It's a prefect place for a romantic city trip or just to rest and enjoying the city life.

Stay in a converted mock medieval castle with a sauna in the turret?! What a splendid idea it seemed upon booking. Happily, upon stepping through the heavy wooden door into the lobby it soon became clear that a right decision had been made. Even though it was 1st May and most of the city were on the streets partying in their graduation hats, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean and terribly comfortable with a spacious wet room for a bathroom. The whole hotel, much like Helsinki was clean, clam and relaxed.
Breakfast was amazing! Fruit juices (our favourite was multi-fruit), porrige, pick and mix musli, fruit slad, yoghurt, toast, croissants, jams, tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, cheese, ham, boiled eggs and a mix or breads with tea and coffee were all inclusive. Omlettes could be ordered on top.
We had dinner in the restaurant one evening. This did not disapoint either. I wish I could find cloudberry ice cream at home! A perfectly polite and helpful, friendly waiter and food that for Helsinki was not too expensive, well presented and delicious.

Glo Art is an easy walk into the centre of Helsinki so very well situated.

Good meeting rooms with a lot of character. Most hotel rooms seem to be in more modern part, via long corridors and a lot of key operated doors. Rooms very new and clean. Very quiet. Bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever stayed in (firm) and good pillows. No room service but the basement restaurant was good and had some vegetarian choices. Bath a good size. Don't recommend sharing room with friends or colleagues as bathroom door does not shut let alone lock, and bathroom is separated from bedroom only by smoked glass, which you can see through fairly well in daylight. No safe or fridge in room, which was unexpected. Liked that you could borrow yoga mats etc from reception. Make sure you get the mid-range room however as delegates complained that the more basic room had no desk, nowhere to hang clothes or coats, and was broomcupboard-like.

Room Tip: Choose large rooms at mid-range rather than cheap rooms, especially if on business as smaller rooms...

This was a very nice hotel which I highly recommend. 10 minutes walk from the City Centre, this hotel is on a fairly quiet street in the art district of Helsinki. The room had only just been refurbished and was clean, unbelievably quiet (I was at the back of the hotel) with a very comfy bed. Breakfast was a notable highlight with fresh bread and croissants. The staff were also incredibly polite throughout the hotel. Only negative was that it took 5 minutes for hot water to reach my shower.
