The hotel itself is nice. Rooms are modern and spacious. Location is good but be prepared for a 10-15 min walk downtown. Breakfast had good and healthy options. Beware of the parking fee - the hotel has outsourced parking to an external company and as we left 30 min later than planned we were already fined. So after having paid...

From the outside the hotel looks great, artistic. Inside partly. The breakfast-room looks and feels like a schools hall for gymnastics. Only one tight door to and back from getting' the food, which was mostly cold. Book a bigger room, in the small room you can't even move. Not enough value for over 100 euros.

The lobby is cute, the room is big enough for two and our suitcases, the bathroom is nice and roomy, breakfast was delicious and has a variety of hot food and you can order your fresh omelette. The Internet connection is also great. It takes about 12-15 minutes walking and dragging your suitcase uphill from the train station. However, it...

Location: This is a 10 min walk to the train station/forum shopping centre or €10 cab fare from the train station. It seemed relatively quiet in the area and was very pleasant. Room: As this is an older building, there wasn't air con or climate control in the bedroom. However, you could open the window. It was nice and clean...

We stayed in comfort double room at fifth floor. Room was modern, nice, clean and quiet. Interior of the old part of hotel (castle) including restaurant is interesting and beautiful. Breakfast was good as expected in better finnish hotels.

Pleasant hotel near the centre. Comfortable, well furnished, quiet, architectually attractive (the depicted vaulted hall and the winding stairs remind you of a medieval castle), it is surely worth a real Finnish experience.

We chose this Hotel because who doesn't want to walk through a giant medieval wooden door into a castle? Even though the rooms are very modern the old look and feel of the exterior and the lobby area was beautiful The staff was genuine, knowledgeable and seemed happy. Breakfast offering downstairs was very good. Our room was VERY comfortable and...

Very nice and clean hotel. The reception area was like an old tower. A lot of choices for breakfast. Not very good dinner Wonderful spacy rooms. In the heart of Helsinki. The stuff of the restaurant were a little slow.

I found this hotel nice and rather tidy. The room was very quiet. Good location in the city center. Negatives are the price is on the high side compared to other nearby hotels. Also the shower head setup was a bit strange and the pillows were far too soft.

The interior of the hotel lobby is fantastic, as well as the restaurant milieu in the cellar, but that's where the fascination ends. The Glo Art is just another hotel with modern rooms in modern corridors. Breakfast is nice, though, with it's modern touch. I got excellent service when asking for a quiet room. The standard double bed was too...
