The summer season sees three new quality accommodation providers in Helsinki, Tampere and Jyväskylä.
GLO Hotel Art, Helsinki
Situated in the heart of Helsinki’s Design District, GLO Hotel Art is a unique combination of a 1903-built Art Nouveau castle and a sleek modern lifestyle hotel.
Formerly known as Hotel Linna, a physical refurbishment saw an alteration in the entire hotel image.
The 170 rooms have been created together with Finnish designers, and the hotel houses a collection of modern art.
The restaurant, GLO Art Kitchen, is located in the hundred-year-old castle’s cellar. The menu is based on Nordic kitchen from the grill.
To spice up their stay, the hotel offers its customers exercise equipment, bicycles, a selection of music and painting equipment, among other things.
Hotel Scandic Tampere Station
Hotel Scandic Tampere Station opens 29th May. The new seven-storey hotel has a prime location in central Tampere, only a stone’s throw from the railway station.
Tampere's attractions, restaurants and entertainment all lie within easy reach from the hotel. The hotel has 200 guest rooms, including 12 for disabled guests and five with a private sauna.
The hotel also has a lobby shop, a gym and a leading sustainability program. Breakfast is always included.
Sokos Hotel Paviljonki, Jyväskylä
Opening June 18th, Sokos Hotel Paviljonki is beautifully located on the shore of Lake Jyväsjärvi in central Jyväskylä.
A pedestrian and cycle path circling the lake start from the hotel door, providing guests of the 170-room hotel an excellent chance for peaceful walks and bike tours in classic Finnish lake scenery.
The Jyväskylä Travel Centre local travel hub lies only a few minutes’ walk away, as does all leisure and entertainment of central Jyväskylä.
