I came from the airport and took the local bus in front of the terminal (€ 4.2 on way) and dropped off at the central station. From there it is a 5 minutes’ walk to the Glo. If you have more luggage I recommend to take the Finnair bus (7€ one way) as it is a real coach and provides help with the luggage. Both buses take around 30 minutes to the city center.
During check- which was very fast and smooth, nothing special. I booked the lowest category but was upgrade to a deluxe room which is a bit bigger and allows access to the Kämp Spa which is shared with the Hotel Kämp. Otherwise it would have cost 20€. Notice that the Spa is closed on Sundays.
The room was very spacy with separated toilet and bathroom behind an wall, across the bed. As it was facing the courtyard no noise was recognized. Windows cannot be opened and all is controlled by the air condition.
Breakfast was included in my prepaid rate, but normally is around 20€. Restaurant itself is located on first floor overlooking the pedestrian main street. Selection of food and service was pretty good, real 4 star.
The location is very good with many restaurants to reach by short walk. It is in the heart of the city with everything easily to reach, train station, shops, harbor and famous sites. Thus also public transport is nearby.
Overall very nice and good hotel which is a bargain compared to the Hotel Kämp which is nearby and double the price. But the Glo is much more modern and designed for younger people you would like to stay in the city center.
