GLO Hotel Kluuvi Helsinki
Ranked #12 of 64 Hotels in Helsinki
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 January 2014

In the perfect location to explore Helsinki, you are close to shopping, parks, the marina and tour buses.
The rooms are light and modern with good facilities and the staff are friendly and helpful and come at a good price.

Friendly staff, wonderful central location and all the facilities you would expect from a 4 star hotel in Helsinki. It is the 4th time I have stayed there and will be going back again. Note: If there are room upgrades available on booking and not too expensive worth doing.

We stayed in Hotel Glo for a city weekend. This was our second time in the same year and it is always worth it. The hotel is in the heart of the city and close to the shopping and sights. We got an upgrade to a superior room and o-boy it was worth it. The room was spacious and very modern and trendy, it felt like a luxury apartment. The room was very clean and bed had nice soft white linen in it. Service is very efficient and friendly. Breakfast also very good, they offer a lot of organic options and the atmosphere in the restaurant is very relaxed and nice. Easily the best hotel in Helsinki.

Nice rooms, clean hotel and polite service and nice details. The finish design and expression is taken care of in all rooms. Just open your eyes and take a good look when you walk around.
The breakfast wasn't suprisingly good. Little variation and would appreciated more focus on healthy food.
The hotel has a connection to a Spa but I didn't have time to use it.
The location was superb - in the very heart of Helsinki. The entrance is in a quite side street.

Room Tip: They might have some room towards the busy shopping street. Here the tramb runs by!!

This hotel is located in the heart of the city, within walking distance of the Senate Square, fish / tourist market, esplanade, shopping, and more. The rooms are on the small side, as can be expected with a hotel in this location, but the furnishings and fixtures were modern and clean. Breakfast is included, and has more than enough to satisfy your hunger.

The hotel is situated right in the centre of Helsinki, all major sights and most restaurants are within walking distance. The surroundings (Kluuvi) are nice, the staff was quite helpful on several occasions, breakfast was OK.

BUT:

- the room was tiny (estimated 12 sqm)
- room equipment was rather poor (you'd expect more from a 4* hotel)
- the bathroom door and walls were quite... translucent; you have to know each other well to get along in such a room
- the hotel is an old building which was not completely renovated (in particular the staircases look quite old), but even parts that had been renovated are quite worn off (e.g., hallways to get to rooms)
- very annoyingly, highspeed internet is NOT for free; you get a basic 512kB for free, but have to pay royally (19Euro per day) for a true high-speed connection

Overall, the hotel felt rather sterile and more like a fancy youth hostel. OK, you're in Finland (not famous for being warm and welcoming), but I've stayed in a lot of places in Scandinavia where I felt much more comfortable. For a romantic trip for two, this is definitely not the place to go.

We chose this hotel on previous reviews and I would have to say I was disappointed. The hotel is very tired, with worn furnishings. The lighting is extremely poor especially in the bathroom. There is no tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast is plentiful but very chaotic and crowded there did not appear to be enough seating. The location of the hotel is fantastic within easy walking distance to all attractions and transport and shops. The reception staff speak excellent English and are extremely helpful. I do not have a problem recommending this hotel if you are not looking for anything too flash.
