“Boutique, relaxing, amazing Atmosphere.”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Stayed here while visiting Helsinki for the Lux Festival. It was very well situated, amazingly maintained and had great service standards. The sitting area at the lobby was brilliant and had a most relaxing atmosphere, the drinks available were great, and the rooms were great for when you need that good nights rest, the shower was huge with a massive rain shower head, the bed was super comfortable.

Thanks Glo Hotel Art!!

We stayed here for a couple of nights in a Delux room and overall this hotel is not bad.

Helsinki is an expensive city but even factoring this in I thought this hotel was poor value for money. This is compounded by the annoying add on charges for items which I think should have been included for a hotel of this quality and price. For example, internet connection is provided but it is a slow connection and you have to pay a few Euros for a decent connection or even more Euros for a good connection. Similarly, the buffet breakfast is fairly good with a decent range, but if you want bacon or eggs that another 5 Euros each.

The room was ok but I was dissappointed given it was a Delux room; it was fairly average for any simililar quality hotel's normal room so for a Delux room I didn't think it was that good. The shower however was very good.

The staff is excellent and very helful and friendly and the bar area is nice. The outside of this hotel is also very nice, looking like a castle and the interior is also good.

The location is reasonable, probably about a 15 minute walk to the centre of Helsinki but it is on the way to the West Ferry terminal from the city centre, so if you are travelling onto Tallinn with a ferry leaving from the West terminal (we went with Tallink) you could walk it, albeit a 20-30 minute walk.

Room Tip: I probably would not bother with a Delux room because it is poor value for money.

Really like Hotel Glo Art. Girls at the front desk were so friendly and helpful. Breakfast great and in a lovely restaurant.
Rooms were clean and well decorated but pretty small. Comfy beds. Easy walk to most main areas and central square. Would recommend it happily.

Stayed for a night at the Glo Art hotel. The reception is a bit dark but the staff are really friendly and accommodating. They kept the kitchen open for me as I arrived late. The room was small but perfectly formed. I loved the adjustable bed. Great shower and comfortable all around. Will definitely stay there again.

If you are travelling with someone who you don’t mind see showering, and whose toilet noises do not bother you, then the standard rooms here might be worth a consideration. Despite their miniature size, the design influenced rooms are brand new and have cool lighting, and the hotel itself is within 10 minutes walk from the city center. No need to get the breakfast offer though (they WILL try to sell it to you nevertheless), as it’s average at best.

Helsinki is expensive... so that would probably be the theme of any review I wrote, no matter what hotel I stayed. We stayed here for 1 night only, and I had no complaints, really. Hotel room was modern and clean. We had a clogged drain, but the staff came and fixed it right away. Other than that it was an uneventful stay. Seemed like an ok location, although it was west of most of the main attractions.

Not sure if I would stay here again, I think I would find something cheaper, even if it wasn't as nice.

This Helsinki hotel is quite new, but we found that the rooms were too small for us. Not enough space for 2 luggages. If you have heavy stuff and arrive to the central station as many others, it is a challenge to walk up the hill approx. 20 mins to reach the hotel. Be sure you connected free internet option otherwise you could be charged 10 euros for the same but "more speed" (really?=) Staff is nice, it is Europe!
