Normal hotel, conveniently located. The rooms have the necessary minimum of things. Warm, even hot (it was February). Rooms and lobby are clean. A delicious variety of food in the restaurant. A good sauna and swimming pool, where you can then sit next to the fireplace. Courteous, friendly, helpful staff. Basically, we only slept in the hotel and rest a...

This is an old and dated hotel. The better quality rooms are just about acceptable but how are you supposed to order room service when there is no phone? The standard rooms reached via a tunnel are only one star and unacceptable. I have seen budget hostels with better quality furniture and fittings. Like the hotel staff are of varying...

"Superior standard" room lovely and spacious plus, ours overlooked the river. Two features spoiled our stay:1) we arrived at 2:05 and to.dour room would not be available until 2pm. When we pointed out it was already past 2, it was explained it was busy (the Lapland Artic Rally were using it as a base - not our fault and we...

We've stayed here for four nights, and it was a great base for exploring the arctic circle. The rooms were ok, breakfast was pretty good and reception staff was very knowledgeable about the city and region. Would I come back? Probably yes!

Whiht these finnish chain hotels you know what you get. Average tree star hotel but I have nothing to complain about. Location is good. And it's nice to have a kettle in the room. I would hope for a gym. For some reason, hotels in Rovaniemi are rather expensive.

We travelled on one of Thomson's Lapland trips and were at the hotel for four nights. The local area of Rovaniemi was a little bit more populated and we preferred it to Levi Fells. The local restaurants and markets were a little pricey, but the beauty of this village-sized city made up for it! Firstly, the rooms were good, they...

Rooms are a little old-fashioned but with good furniture and a functional bathroom. The place obviously has a long history. Pool is freezing cold! Location is great though, right by the river. Breakfast buffet is also very good.

I stayed here for 6 nights in January with my husband and our three daughters aged 22, 18 and 6. We had two rooms - a standard double room on the third floor and a triple room on the second floor. These rooms were in the main block, not through the long tunnel. The standard double room was fairly small...

It's really difficult to judge this hotel. The buffet is really good and the position as well (close to the center and to Lapland Safaris). The sauna was small but nice, the pool cold but the fire close to the pool was amazing. But there is a huge negative vote: the cleaning service. We came back from an excursion at...

Dear Edoardo, Thank you for your valuable review of our hotel. I am very sorry to hear that the room wasn't cleaned until the evening.

Nice scandic hotel. The service needs to be improved. Room service and restaurant service during the breakfast need to be improved. In general I found that the service in this city is not good enough, probably no many people here and they do not manage to catch on. I do not recommend to order a taxi from the hotel recepation....
