* Excellent location, right in the centre of Helsinki
* 30mins from the airport by Taxi
* Room was a generous size for the price, very modern and sleek
* Bed was comfortable and the I liked the open plan bathroom/sink facilities.
* Staff were very friendly and seem to speak a number of languages, as a lazy Englishman, their English was perfect (this seems to be the case throughout Helsinki).
* Would definitely recommend.

* On a separate note, if you're there on the first Friday of the month, head east to where the market and boat trips are and there will be an American muscle car rally. Lots of fun

Just returned from a three night stay at GLO. We booked a standard room but it was very spacious so I don't know if all standard rooms are that size or if they gave us an upgrade. It was super comfortable and had very quiet but efficient aircon which was necessary as the weather was hot. It was possible to turn off the aircon as well which was good. A fridge, mini safe, very comfortable bed, great bathroom, huge TV. The hotel was so quiet, I didn't hear any noise at all, so slept really well. It's in a very good location and the staff were so helpful and kind. They gladly answered any questions and told us exactly where we could book tickets and catch a bus to Porvoo (a really charming town about an hour from Helsinki, well worth a visit). We loved Helsinki, such a cool city and so much to do. Would definitely return to the city and would choose this hotel again. Everyone we met were so friendly and we had two amazing meals, one in the harbour, don't know the name, the other at a place called Boulevard Social. Thanks very much to Hotel GLO and Helsinki for a lovely trip.

The hotel is at a great location to downtown, tons of restaurants, and nightlife. It's pretty modern with a small little bar and outside patio. The rooms were tiny, but so are most in Helsinki. Our room was a bit dark as the windows were small and well above our heads, which caused very little natural light to fall inside the building. A small incident occurred where some of our party got stock in an service area accessible only by a service elevator and had to wait for an hour to be "rescued", the staff was helpful to retrieve our friends, but it should be impossible/locked for guests even to end up in this area.

I am looking forward to seeing you back at our property one day!

Stayed one night in this hotel. It was a beautifully decorated reception area. Rooms were good, shower wonderful. About a 15 minute walk to town. There are local markets nearby on the water front where both locals and tourists go for lunch.
I had the best salmon I have ever tasted. It was not expensive and for dessert I had berries. They sell all sorts of fresh produce at a reasonable price.
Free public bathrooms can be located in the council building and there is some interesting art to see in the building.

The Kluuvi offers an excellent location in central Helsinki, and at a much better price than it more old-school neighbor the Kämp. Rooms are nice and clean, though rather simple. A very nice feature is the great gym which is actually shared with Kämp, here you can find kettle bells, weights, technogym machines and cardio options.

We stayed for 2 nights in a very large corner room. The room was very nice--large area for the bed and then small seating area. The toilet was separate from the shower which i liked. Not sure if all rooms are the set up like this. The flooring was nice and clean looking. We were traveling with our small child and they gave us an excellent crib. The breakfast was delicious and much more than a continental breakfast. i would highly recommend having cocktails at the hotel bar. They were great and handcrafted. Location was perfect and close to everything. Only comment would be that the building itself is a bit strange. Our room overlooked the room basically.

We stopped three nights in the hotel GLO Kluuvi Helsinki in a "large" room.The hotel room was indeed large, very well appointed, clean,quiet and comfortable.The location of this hotels right in the middle of Helsinki with easy access to everything.The breakfast room is a little small and crowded,but the breakfast was fine.
Overall a very good hotel with friendly efficient staff.

Room Tip: A "large" room very good with a full size bath and separate toilet.
