Centrally located in the town center. Only a few minutes walk to the riverside with nice walkways and running tracks. Rooms quite spacious & well equipped. Normal Finnish buffet breakfast. Looking for a nice place to stay in Rovaniemi for a stay over then this is a perfect choice.

We visited with two children, both under the age of 3, and they were given toy reindeers from the reception as we entered the hotel. A really nice gesture! We also got two baby beds in the room as wished (free of charge). A tasty breakfast with plenty of choices, and enough baby stairs available as well.

What a great hotel. With great attention to detail. The rooms are well appointed with everything you need. All the little things which make a difference to the weary traveller. Luggage rack, tissues, temperature control, tea making facilities, a fridge and easily accessible power outlets. It is also aesthetically pleasing. With cute little Christmas details. Even the drain in the...

A nice hotel in the center of town, you can walk to most nearby places from there. The rooms were big and filled with stuff from the souvenir shop (located at the lobby of the hotel). The food at the dining room wasn't amazing. An OK breakfast. The staff was nice and gave us some recommendations to bars and restaurants.

The hotel is perfectly located in the center of town. But that's about the only thing perfect about it. The elevators are very slow (we gave up using them) There is no gym or other workout options. The room was clean but rather small Breakfast was very good, dinner was rather basic. An ok hotel, was worth the money, but...

We've spent a week on March in the hotel. The best thing about it is its location. The hotel is located right in the city center and is in a short walking distance from nearly everything in Rovaniemi, shopping, pubs and restaurants. The rooms are nice and quite comfortable and specious. The bed is comfortable and the room is kept...

We were given the choice of staying at this hotel when we experienced flight delays. Even though we were really bummed out, staying at this really nice hotel with great service and crew was uplifting. They made the transition very smooth and effortless for us. The restaurant inside the hotel served really good food as we ordered dinner from there....

It is quality hotel located in the center of the town Roveniami. It is possible to go by feet to Arcticum museum, to river, to snowmobile, forshopping. Money machine is just across the street. You can book attraction in hotel. Breakfast is good, specially black bread. For eating afternoon I would recommend to go outside. Beds are not for honeymooners....
