Public transportation timetables and routes

Barrier-free access to the hotel is through the sliding doors on the side of the portico. Barrier-free parking spaces are located in the hotel's courtyard, and parking is free of charge with a mobility-impaired parking ID.

In case you arrive by car, it is good to know that it is not allowed to drive on Lönnrotinkatu with studded tires. But this does not apply if you are visiting a premises on the street. Hotel guests do not need to worry about that.

We are renovating the hotel's main building's roof, and at the same time, we are improving the ventilation and installing more energy-efficient systems. The main building's roof will be under renovation until mid-July, and the hotel's facade is surrounded by a weather shelter, which may make it slightly harder to spot the hotel. Some rooms may have a view of the renovation area from the window. Otherwise, the renovation does not affect the comfort of the visit. The renovation is not conducted above the rooms, and there will be no noise disturbance in the rooms.


Hotel guests can purchase parking tickets to Europark from the parking machines in the garage. Acceptable payment methods are credit card, coins or Parkit service. The parking can be paid to the reception (car registration number is required). Tariffs are approximately 4,10 € /hour and 25 € / 24 h.

There are also four charging points for electric cars at the parking garage and on the court yard two barrier-free parking spaces are located in the hotel's courtyard, and parking is free of charge with a mobility-impaired parking ID.

GYM 24/7

At GLO Hotel Art, our gym boasts high-quality equipment to provide a diverse workout experience. We also offer a separate wellness area where you can practice yoga or various bodyweight exercises. Despite the compact size of the gym, we have managed to fit in all the essential equipment, leaving space for your personalized fitness routine. We have taken special care to accommodate guests who prefer more restorative activities.

Furthermore, even if physical activity is not on your agenda at the moment, our wellness room features a fantastic Finnish innovation for our guests' use – the Neurosonic!


GLO Hotel Art is located in central Helsinki, a short walk from everything worth seeing in the city. Even so, it is slightly off the beaten path, meaning its well-preserved surroundings maintain a historic integrity – a glimpse of what Helsinki was like before globalization.

Left or right? Exiting GLO Hotel Art you will find delicacies if you go one way and art and fashion if you go the other.

Following Lönnrotinkatu to the right you will end up at Hietalahti market and market hall. The market hall is currently the most interesting gourmet market in Helsinki. There are various restaurants, including vegetarian ones, and cafés. On Saturdays they offer a DJ and tidbits until 10 in the evening.

A turn to the left takes you to the corner of Lönnrotinkatu and Fredrikinkatu. A little forward and you enter the Old Church Park. On either side you will find two different galleries, Gallerie Forsblom and Helsinki Contemporary. Both are definitely worth a visit.

On Bulevardi lies a true Helsinki institution, Café Ekberg, where you can see elderly ladies having coffee, as well as people who intend to be an elderly lady enjoying coffee in later life.

Fredrikinkatu has grown into a Helsinkian fashion street, filled with small and interesting fashion brands. Pop into Liike or Asuna. The decorator might want to visit Johanna Gullichsen Textile Craft & Design and Irene Lemmetti's Zarro. Punavuori is a great area to look around the city with many small boutiques and excellent cafés, to which you simply need to pay a visit.

Alexander Theatre

Just around the corner from GLO Hotel Art is the long-established centre of Helsinki’s cultural life, Alexander Theatre, that is filled with action every day. The theatre's repertoire includes all types of concerts, theatrical and dance performances.
