I stayed in the hotel with my family a few weeks ago. The hotel was clean and the breakfast was fine. But the room smelled damp and fire alarm went off for minutes in our room at 2:30am. It woke us all and it kept us awake a couple of hours (including my little boy). We told the staff what... More

Hotel staff went over & beyond in taking care of our group of 13. Including storing our luggage until the rooms were ready later in the afternoon, calling taxis & rental cars for us, and giving advice on local transport options. Upon our return through Rovaniemi we needed to store 30+ pieces of luggage. We rented a room there, &... More

Stayed for 1 night during a stop over and would not recommend to stay longer than that. Hotel is not on a main street, but traffic was very noisy nevertheless. Rooms are basic but ok. Lamp in our bathroom didn't work and was just flickering. Maintenance seems not a priority. Breakfast buffet was ok.

We stayed 3 nights here in March. The rooms were basic, but adequate. The reception was very friendly and nice. No elevator, but only 2 floors so not far to haul luggage. The breakfast in the morning had a lot of selection. Easy walking to center of town- less than 10 minutes. All in all, a good stay.

Our family of 4 went into what was supposed apartment but my son's bed was in the kitchen. The bathroom had a rusted pipe and the toilet bowl a huge cracked. The breakfast food did not seem fresh but the stench of fish every night was very off putting. Would not recommend staying unless it was your only option which... More

It feels dirty and old, wind blows through the whole apartment, neighbors and the corridor are noisy. Beds are crap, too expensive for its value. Only positive is its situation, right in the center of Rovaniemi.

The staff is friendly and helpful, and the hotel is walking distance from almost everything, except Santa's village (10 minutes by car). The breakfast is OK. The room was clean (mine was 101) but needed some serious refreshing. I felt like nothing had been renewed since the early 90s. For example, crack in the sink of the bathroom, old dark... More

Stayed for one night, travelling south. As others have said, it's a bit basic, there were a number of contractors staying there, as well as a coachload of uni students, families etc. Décor is a little tired, but everything was super clean, functional, fast wifi, and I had absolutely the best breakfast in over two weeks in Finland. All the... More

Comparing to other places to stay in Rovaniemi this one is quite cheap. One the other hand, it is also quite old and you can see it everywhere - in the room, in a restaurant and outside. The reception staff was polite and helpfull. They also did the job in the restaurant. Wifi was free and fast. It was possible... More
