We stayed on a half board option and the food was delicious. Wide choice of hot and cold food at breakfast. Evening meal was also a buffet with... More

A lovely hotel, virtually on the slopes. Well worth upgrading to the superior room with balcony - beautiful views. Large clean room with comfortable bed that ensure a good nights sleep after a day on the slopes. Rooms a little dated but did not go there to spend time in the room. We stayed half board and food was buffet... More

Just returned from a fantastic week in Ruka. We stayed in a superior room overlooking the slopes, could not fault it. The room was well laid out and plenty of space. Food was great at both breakfast and evening., plenty of choice. Hotel is situated in the heart of the village, 2 min to nearest chair lift. You can virtually... More

We stayed here on a half board basis in a superior room for a week. This was our first time in Finland and it was the best holiday we've had. There were a few very cold days nearing -40 which was a bit brutal but still enjoyed going to ski school and ski bistro to warm up. The food at... More

Upon arrival, the main reception is very welcoming and typical of ski resort accommodation. Beyond this, it is like a complete different hotel. After finding our room which was quite a trek from reception especially with suitcases weaving in and out of cages and trolleys full of towels/bedding which were abandoned in every other corridor, we were nothing but disappointed...

Is this the best skiing hotel in Finland? Rooms are ok, a bit old fashioned, one day they did not even bother to clean our room. Breakfast is terrible, fully booked (we had our breakfast in the lobby) and dirty. Scrambeled eggs are not even close to eggs, one coffee maschine to four hundred quests. Also the breakfast room is... More

Unfortunatelly this hotel is a good example of finnish hotel chain Rantasipi quality - very basic, old fashioned and expensive for its quality... Hotel has two sections; old and new (a bit newer than the old one...). Make sure in advance that you don't get a room from the old section. It has small, old fashioned, smelly and cold rooms...

The hotel Rantasipi Rukahovi is located immediately next to the slopes of the Ruka skiing resort in the heart of the Ruka village. It is also close to the x-country skiing tracks. Lots of dining facilities are also located close-by. The hotel itself has few restaurants and bars, too. I had a reservation for three nights (Sun-Wed), and I arrived... More

We stayed here for our annual ski holiday, we loved the hotel, the staff were polite and helpful. The rooms were clean, ours had a fridge and flat screen tv, also has a heated wardrobe which was great after skiing with wet gear.

Nice size rooms. Very good breakfast. Amazing situation right next to the hill. All that you need is right next to the corner. Staff was helpful. Only bad thin was, that during the high season hotels restaurant is not working well. We had to wait our dinners for 2 hours.
