I was passing through Sodankyla, again, and stayed at the Bear Inn a second time and it was just as great as the last time. Friendly service, good food, and clean and comfortable rooms.

I do look forward to my next visit, just not sure when!

The number of hotels in Sodankylä are few but this is a decent choice. Should not be compared to high-end alternatives in large cities -- this one offers a bed (fairly good) and standard amenities and nothing more. But to sleep one night - more than ok!

We stopped here for a night during our trip from the north. This place is a very quiet town and there is nothing much around the area. It is one of the cheapest hotel in the area to stopover for a night. There is free sauna in the evening, free breakfast and free wifi. You have to ask for the password. Breakfast selection was limited but it was better than nothing. There is a microwave and fridge at the staircase for use. The hotel is relatively big. The room and toilet were newly re-furbished i guess. The toilet comes with a modern shower system. The old reception staff was a little blur and did not know what we were asking when we were checking out with them how was the northern light sightings for the past few days. The place is good for 1 night.

This hotel is best for a short stops or a people who have work gigs nearby. Hotel itself is located next to a highway.

Dinner buffet is ok but there was not really a ala carte although they had a plenty of stuff in their list in their web pages. When I asked the chef about the ala carte he was so surprised and unsure what ingredients they have so I didn't wan't to try my luck. Beers etc were surprisingly cheap in the bar.

Rooms were quite cool during the midsummer hot weather. There was free LAN-connection in the rooms, not WIFI

Have stayed here before and I will stay here again. The beds are a bit small but comfortable and the bathrooms also a bit small, but everything works.
The receptionist and other staff are very friendly and helpful and speak English.
There is a free washing machine and dryer in the basement, as well as a sauna if you don't get a small sauna in your room.
Breakfast is basic but good enough. I haven't dared ask for a fried egg or anything different and just settle for the seemingly artificial scrambled egg. Cereals, toast, bacon and sausages, cold meats are all good. Supper is reasonable, with fixed meals when I was there, no a la carte.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the sun in spring or autumn (not summer). Ask for darker curtains in summer. You can ask for a room with a sauna for a more private sauna.
