GLO Hotel Helsinki Airport

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is located inside Terminal 2 at the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport. Just go through the security check and the departure gates are within a few minutes’ walk. The hotel has an underground location. So there are no windows in the rooms. There are two types of rooms: Smart rooms are 11-14m2 and Comfort rooms are 15-19m2. The rooms are not very spacious but modern and practical. The beds are comfortable. Comfort rooms have motorized beds. The lobby with reception and bar is stylishly decorated. Next to the hotel is Cesar's Little Italy restaurant where you can buy reasonably priced meals. The hotel breakfast is served there. With the breakfast coupon, you can also have a smaller Grab & Go breakfast at many airport cafes and bars. The staff was very friendly. Especially the receptionist trainee was great. He was already like a pro in service.

This hotel delivered! Very well located just under the bag drop and security area. Very quiet hotel and friendly staff. Very clean and modern interior. Just what I needed and good value for money. Thank you much for a good night sleep

Stayed here for one night as had very early flight the following morning. Location is very convenient inside the airport, just mere meters away from the terminal 2 departure hall (and short walk from Terminal 1). Room was modern and clean with large TV, but very small. My bed was 120cm (or 140cm) wide and there was just enough space around it to fit bedside tables on both sides. Room had no windows. No minibar. Bathroom was also very small, but again clean and very modern. I do find the price to be a bit on a high side considering the size of the room and lack of windows, but convenience for being inside the airport with 2 minutes from security does have its perks..

It is right on the airport property. The room is small but clean and the bathroom floor is heated. There are no windows but there are inventive ways to light the room. It was a little overheated. If you have a very short lay over, we recommend it.

Good quiet hotel at the airport. Very friendly service. The bed are incredibly comfortable. The rooms are not so big and can be found tight if travelling with 2-3 large suitcases. They do not have breakfast service itself but 20m away there is a buffee ’Little Italy Ceasars’.

It’s a clean 3-star hotel. Given I paid 230€ for one night, I was very disappointed by the following facts: - Rooms are all in the cellar. No windows. No daylight - Room is very small, estimated 10 Square Meters, not more than a bed + bathroom. No chair - No minibar - No room service - No restaurant (only breakfast) Compared to the 4-star Hilton (that has all of the above plus more amenities), which cost 158€ the next night, I felt a bit ripped off. So if you can, go for the Hilton

This was a great place to stop over from our flight from Lapland headed back home. We checked in late, and had no issues and since we had to check out early before breakfast began they gave us breakfast vouchers to be used in one of four locations inside the airport. That was a great perk as we were upset about missing breakfast! The room was a bit small, but that didn't matter since we were only there for one night, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. If you need somewhere to sleep for a stopover in the Helsinki airport, this is definitely worth the price for the convenience of the departures being right upstairs.

GLO is the only hotel inside the airport building (Hilton Helsinki Airport is situated five minutes walk away from terminals). It is only two minutes indoor walking from your room in GLO to the airport check-in and security checks. You can already drop your luggage for flight in the evening (6-9.30 pm) if you have a Finnair flight the next morning. There is also an interior corridor to the station of commuter trains (30 minutes to Helsinki). Because GLO is located in the airport building, there aren’t any windows in rooms. Rooms are very compact. However, you find a motorized bed, self-adjustable air-conditioning and a small bathroom (a toilet and a shower) in your room. Soap and shampoo are available, but notice that unfortunately there isn’t any body lotion there. They also have day rooms and some interconnecting rooms so that you can connect two rooms with a communicating door. Rooms in the middle of the hotel are very silent and peaceful. Instead there can be some odd noise in rooms which are situated next to the outer wall of the hotel. Our family had rooms in both places. There was a little bit noise in the room which had an outer wall, like using pushing carts or pulling suitcases. A gym for hotel visitors is open 24/7. A buffet breakfast is available at 6-9.30 am. You can choose Cesar’s Little Italy Restaurant next to the hotel or O’Learys Restaurant for your breakfast buffet. O’Learys is situated after the airport check-in and security check desks on the gate area near the gate 29 (the 2nd floor). This is the extremely nice breakfast choice, if you have an early flight. You can check-in and go through the security check first and then wait for boarding and enjoy your breakfast in all peace. Actually I think that the breakfast buffet is better in O’Learys. You can also choice a smaller Grab&Go Breakfast which is available 24/7 in several restaurants or cafeterias. A breakfast is included in room prices. In summary I can say that rooms are very small but functional. We stayed in this hotel both in late December and early January and we will stay here also in the future.

Great hotel for a stop over to catch an early morning flight. Front desk staff great and fast check in / check out. A little noisy as the sound proofing is not great, hence the 4 stars not 5. Breakfast provided and a varied assortment to choose from.

After long flight it was easy to get here. Small room, but there is everything you need. Price wasnt cheapest, resonable anyhow. Breakfast ware including and if you have plane to catch you can eat breakfast after security check (they give you a coupon). I am going to use this in future if I have early flight to catch or late arrival.
