“Excellent Hotel in the Heart of Helsinki”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

We just returned from two nights stay in Glo Kluuvi Hotel, which we enjoyed very much. The hotel is very modern and the staff is nice and very service minded. If we go to Helsinki again, this would be our clear choice.

We stayed one night in the basic queen room and upgraded for 35 euro's to a mini-suite.Seperate sitting area with seperate TV. Huge bathroom, big shower very modern. Everything is new and in excellent condition. Super clean. Bed was very comfortable and in the German tradition had two seperate comforters, very obliging when we asked for a top sheet. A breakfast buffet was included in the price of the room. We found it to be excellent for our needs. Had many offerings, juice,some fruits,homemade yougurt,salad, fresh breads,ham and cheese and hot bacon,scrambled eggs and sausage. Not much in breakfast sweets. In fact we found in Helsinki desserts are not much. The buffet is open until 10:00 which is nice when you are adapting to the time change. The people at the hotel were very helpful and it is a wonderful location. Shopping all around you and trams to everywhere within the block. It was very quiet and if you like thw windows can be opened.

Room Tip: We had a courtside room but the street is quiet even during the day. The Bar is open in the evening...

Hard to beat the location for the Hotel Glo. Nice quieter pedestrian street, and close to University, National Library, Cathedral, and the nice Esplanade... a great place to walk. Check-in was rather slow, but after we settled in, enjoyed our stay and our room. Room was deluxe-- with a good arrangement and plenty of space. No view at all, but that was ok. Had lunch on the street cafe... and one drink at the bar, other than that, we visited other locales for food and drink. Breakfast was ok, but after several days, would have enjoyed a few more options. The eggs really appeared unappealing, but great daily salmon. Neighboring Hotel Kamp was booked solid for Sunday brunch, which appeared very nice; would add that in to our next stay.

The best thing about this hotel is the location-you can't get any more central in Helsinki. The hotel itself isn't anything spectacular for the price-we stayed in a "deluxe" room which didn't really seem that deluxe-it was quite cramped, the sofa in the tiny "living room" type area was stained and old, the English tv channels worked intermittently at best (freezing every few seconds). The staff was there to do their job but nothing extra-for example, when we asked for some laundry to be done, having just arrived, we were not aware of the price list in the closet, so we asked the woman who came to pick it up approximately how much we could expect to pay. She didn't tell us about the price list, and just said she really had no idea. $111 euros later, it would have been much simpler to wash our socks and t-shirts in the tub! Everything extra in this hotel is a money grab-they want you to pay up front for a set of tv channels other hotels would provide for free. The buffet breakfast is standard-when one sees all the beautiful fruits at the marketplace, one wonders why breakfast does not include any fruit, just the standard bread, cheese, coldcuts. Would not stay here again.

Stayed July 2012, travelled with family

The location is the best in Helsinki! U cannot find somethng more central and trendier than this location! It is central yet the location is more up-scale than the central train station area. Service is very friendly! The rooms are very big, especially the superior rooms, in the superior rooms there is a nice sofa area, 2 TVs (one next to the sofa and one next to the bed), a very big bathroom. U get free coffee, hot chocolate and different kinds of tea brought to your room every day! Breakfast is very good, most of the things organic! I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Lobby is dark and small. Entrance to hotel rooms is dark and atmosphere is uncomfortable.
Room size is acceptable but lack of character. I feel like checking in a motel.
TV reception kept on breaking.
Apart from location convenience, I can't see reason of coming back.

Stayed here on a weekend city break and this hotel did not disappoint. It is well-located in the centre of all the action. The rooms are minimalist. Worth getting a deluxe room for the extra space. Rooms on the 7th floor can sometimes be affected by loud drilling so beware but otherwise fine (understand there are some renovation works at the hotel). The breakfast is of a very high standard. Staff are fairly efficient and the rooms are well designed. Helsinki is a beautiful city and this hotel is a good choice for exploring. Nightlife is great and all within walking distance.

Room Tip: 7th floor rooms sometimes have noise issues - deluxe rooms are worth the extra spend.
