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.

A bit old but still good if you think about a man could get to the ski lift just outside the hotel. There was also... More

This hotel is ideally located across from ski hire and 30m from main ski lifts. There are free ski lockers in the hotel, just ask reception for a key, which you keep all week then hand back once you've checked out. The hotel is lovely and warm, rooms are clean and beds comfortable but the pillows are awful! We were... More
