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.
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.
