I enjoyed my experience here, and it exceeded my expectations for a fairly remote location. Simple, rustic atmosphere, and good food in the restaurant. Lots of tours can be arranged through the front desk, and they also have outdoor equipment if you just want to go sledding or snowshoeing. The rooms and furniture were either dated or rustic, depending on... More

We didn't stay at the hotel but we ate in the restaurant and it was one of the best meals I have had in a while for a good price. I had salmon with a rye crust and risotto for €17. I was very hungry but I couldn't finish it all because the portions were big. We also had the... More

Well! Where do I start, On arrival to the hotel I was met with a fantastic lady called Leenna, She was polite, and attentive. I was very early (9am) for my arrival and my room was not ready so she offered me a complimentary breakfast while she tried to get my room ready very quickly. I chatted with her for... More

The accommodations were average, but the staff was above-average. The woman working when we checked in talked with us about seeing the lights at night. Offered us the hotel's snow shoes and told us where/when to go to see them instead of us paying someone to take us out. Wi-fi was in the room - wonderful plus!

We did not stay here but whiled away a few hours before our flight south in the restaurant and bar. Wifi access was good to keep kids quiet. The buffet lunch was simple but tasty: a choice of two main dishes (pork and chicken) with potatoes and rice, a salad bar and hot and cold drinks. All very good value... More

This hotel is great for food at any time, you can have reindeer and various other things, we didn't stay the night but went back for a few meals as the free wifi is excellent and the easiest to get in Ivalo.

I stayed in Oct for northern lights. The hotel is fantastic, staffs are nice and helpful, really excellent experiences . Traffic is good that close to bus stop and close to supermarkets ( while sometimes you may want to buy Sth needed)

The room was small, quality below average. The window was facing the parking lot, and on the ground floor I was forced to keep the window blinds shut at all times. The rooms on the other side have a view towards the Ivalojoki river, and some of them even have little terraces. So bad luck for me this time. The... More

Why, they have a night club that pumps music until 4am, yes 4am so don't expect any sleep before then. Otherwise, nice atmosphere, great food in the restaurant, like a pub for the locals type of place. Rooms small and basic but OK. Excellent free wifi. Excellent supermarket across he roads that also sells clothing and boots etc for Article... More
