A mixed bag for a three star three hundred kilometers north of the arctic circle its not bad. The food is either lovely or terrible depending who works in the kitchen. We had one really good and one disastrous meal. The rooms are fine but there appear to be noise issues at weekends. What makes the place stand out is... More

We booked this hotel and right from get go knew it was a great choice. They were quite prompt in email communication, and booked us a airport transfer for 10euros. We booked a room with a private sauna, and really that was the best decision ever, as it was -35C, and when you aren't busy in activities, and have to... More

I booked the room since I read good reviews here. It's 10mins away from the airport, 10 mins away from the bus stop, across the supermarket as well as alko and there are eateries near the location. Ossi, the reception staff, is really helpful and accommodating. Breakfast is same for everyday but hey it's still buffet compared to nothing. Rooms... More

We stayed one night here while waiting for a flight. First impressions aren't great - the interior is dark and dated. But the room was comfortable, the staff were friendly and the food was great. It's also in a good spot, right across the road from a supermarket and river. We stayed on a Saturday night and were worried about... More

We stayed here twice at the beginning and end of a trip and the first visit was very good. Simple clean room, dinner was good and we saw the Northern lights from our bedroom window! River facing is the key here which I had requested. However, our second visit was a Saturday night.. dinner was very tasty again, but the... More

It was a night's stay at the hotel before I headed up north into the wilderness. I arrived at 7pm. The reservation was made without credit card guarantee and I was grateful that the hotel kept my room till then. I had dinner at the hotel restaurant which was good. Breakfast is inclusive in the room rate. Room comes with... More

Old hotel with rustic 1970s features any Alfred Hitchcock fan would love. As Ivalo is a small town - hotels are pricey, ALL of them are so I cannot complain. We had the family suite which was pretty cool with its Norman Bates-ish bathroom decor and private sauna. The receptionists , both day and night (on the 28th Dec) were... More

Hotel is about 10 mins ride from the airport. (approx 23 to 25 euros). There is a supermarket and an alko opposite the hotel and some small eateries nearby. Pretty small town in ivalo, so everything is within walking distance. Rooms are cosy, clean and comfortable. There is cable tv, but limited channels. Stay comes with typical finnish breakfast and...

This is a great place as a stop-over in Ivalo with a brilliant restaurant. Close to everything. It's clean with the best pillows thus far in Finland. It's a no-frills hotel - think Best Western. The restaurant is fab which makes things a bit is a deceiving as you kind of expect a similar ambience in the rooms. All would... More

Have not had a decent meal for two days, nothing but reindeer soup (yuk!). Found this place, and just had a really great meal, good service, nice atmosphere / decor (traditional log cabin type thing), reasonable price. Definitely recommend.
