HOPPIN TO HELSINKI

... on the pool deck. It was lovely. It started to rain as we finished dinner but we were under cover.

Today we awoke to a cold, rainy day. This is the Helsinki that I remember from our last visit. We boarded our bus and drove through the city seeing the various sites. No one was anxious to leave the bus, but we stopped at the Sebelius monument for pictures and ...

On board the MS Gabriella to Helsinki

... it a little too much! Pop doesn’t usually eat very much but he too was feeling a little full.

Following dinner Peter and I were anxious to return to our cabin and climb into bed where we hoped to be gently rocked to sleep by the lapping waves – we weren’t disappointed and in the morning we both declared it was the best sleep we had had on the trip so far.

... not apply for breakfast so we were happy to be joined at our table by a lovely group of young travellers from Japan who were both friendly and engaging.

We returned to our cabins to get ready to disembark as we would soon be arriving in Helsinki. On reflection, our crossing on the MS Gabriella had been very enjoyable and much smoother than we expected despite the rainy weather. Even Sal who has always been a reluctant sailor ...

The highlights included the Van Gogh, Chagall and Modigliani work. The Van Gogh work, Street in Auvers-sur-Oise, was the first to be displayed in a public art gallery anywhere in the world and was one of the last paintings he completed.

    Such a relief to find that the curtains really do block out all the light and we could sleep for the first time since our arrival in these northern latitudes.

    The room is large, spacious and comfortable; the bed very much so. Location perfect, staff friendly and helpful. A great place.

    The GLO Kluuvi delivered what it promised. Restful, modern and spotless rooms, great service, great variety and presentation at the breakfast buffet and right in the middle of the city, walking distance to shopping, rail station and the pier where we took the Linda Line to Tallinn. We are back there tomorrow night and although we love Tallinn look forward to the comfortable beds. The decor is modern and streamlined yet warm, inviting and cozy. Great design all around! Loved it...one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at.

    We only stayed here one night but in the midst of a three week tour around Scandinavia the Hotel Glo was definitely a bright spot. The room was huge and had the toilet and a second sink in a separate room from the main sink and shower. Guests can use the spa for an additional charge but the three different saunas are included.

    Not so good as they say!

    from

    I choose to stay at the Glo Hotel after reading the reviews at Tripadvisor, but I did not fully recognize the description of the hotel.

    PERFECT IN EVERY WAY! LOTS OF ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND EXCELLENT FRIENDLY STAFF!

    from

    I have never written a review about any hotel online but my stay at this hotel was so amazing that i feel it is necessary to share with fellow travellers!

    Loved GLO!

    from

    If you're going to Helsinki and looking for an alternative from the regular chain hotels, stay at GLO. Newly opened, GLO is for those who appreciate modern minimalist interior design. We stayed in the suite - super spacious! The service staff is helpful and responsive, laundry returns to your room in a neat box with lavender pouch, the bar has a lounge chair with a TV above your head. The property is within 10 minutes walk to the markets, town center, shopping centers, coffee shops, presidential palace, and the park. Famous Frazer coffee shop is just opposite GLO! Two thumbs up for GLO!

    Très bon hôtel design au centre d'Helsinki

    J'ai passé deux nuits à l'hôtel GLO dans la chambre 728 et ce fut un enchantement.

    Amazing..

    from

    hotel Glo: This is an amazing place to stay in helsinki. Location is excellent, just in the middle of the shopping street and about 5 minutes walk from the railway station.There are so many restaurants close by. The rooms were just too good, They are big..it had a bathtub,HD TV,wireless keyboard to access free internet from TV, free WiFi to access internet from your laptop, a very comfortable bedding and above all very well decorated. The warm colors and the nice dark curtain cloth which covers all the sunlight for you to sleep in peace with the midnight sun are very thoughtful. We paid with Diners club voucher and it turned out to be at a reasonable price. We were 5 people, so we had to have an extra bed in one of the double rooms. The cost of the extra bed(which includes the extra person's breakfast too) was very moderate. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Smart hotel in a central location

    from

    We spent two nights at the Hotel Glo during Eurovision weekend in May. We made the reservation before the hotel opened, and it turned out to be a good choice. The hotel is quite small and enjoys a good location in central Helsinki, right next to the Palace Kamp hotel. We stayed in a deluxe room, which was very nice, large, and modern. We didn't have much time to spend in the room, but there was free internet through the TV with a wireless keyboard, and the TV had many international channels. The nicest touch was the pillow menu. The two types of pillows that were in the room were not great, but we asked for viscoelastic ones from the menu, and they were very comfortable. Make sure you take the slippers with you as you leave! A decent buffet breakfast was included in the price of the room. The only weakness of the hotel is that the staff don't seem to be quite as informed as you would expect in a hotel of this class. On Saturday night we asked the receptionist (there is no concierge) what bars he could recommend that would still be open at 2:30am, and he did not know anything specific. It turned out there was a place a block away that was open until 4. Some more training for reception staff would be recommended.

    Large cool rooms, in this new design hotel.

    from

    I decided to give a try for this recently opened design hotel in center of Helsinki, and liked it a lot. Hotel is located close to Kamp hotel and Kamp galleria, so location is very good.

    Room I got was a much larger than in other Helsinki design hotel Klaus K, or any other hotel in area, I guess around 35 m2. Design was cool, strong warm colours, lots of brown. Specially liked how bathtub was integrated in room. Tivoli-radio is nice, liked also flatscreen tv with large selection of channels.

    Bed was excellent, pillow menu is nice.

    Breakfast is good, located in spanish restaurant. besides normal stuff you find some nice spanish sausages and spanish tortilla. Capuccino and espresso is available.

    Next time have to try dayspa and luxry gym they share with Kamp.

    Perfect. Great. Just damn amazing

    from

    I came across Hotel Glo which apparently has recently opened while doing some research on Helsinki. On Hotels.com I found a deal where pay for 3 nights, get 4 - this suited us perfectly as our flight home on Finnair departed at midnight, enabling us to use the room until we leave.
