Not the most elegant, and the rooms are basic and a little tired. But the breakfast has good variety. The highlight is the menu of the restaurant, lots of variety, and all good. The wine list is basic but enough verity for a few nights....

Actually the better of the two hotels in Sodankylä! It is far from good, in need of renovation and oudated decor. But rooms are of decent size and staff is friendly. Breakfast quite good. Don't expect five star-quality but don't shy away either!

Dear Dr .Booska Thank You for visiting us and giving us feedback. We are small and we are old BUT we will do our best to create more things to do, attractions to recommend for travellers, places to visit nearby and of course developing our services. At this moment most of the services in Sodankylä center are for independent travellers, enjoying the nature by hiking, skiing, watching northern lights, snowshoeing etc. Aurora House 10km is a great place to visit, Luosto offers lots of activities (38km) etc. We appreciate all Your comments and add these to our developing plans. We wish You a nice Year of 2017. Welcome to visit again, next year will be our 50th operating year. with best wishes, Raili
