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

Service at the front office was friendly. Room was very basic, but it was clean. Shower was not so good, it did'nt work so well. I liked breakfast. Good location. This is ok hotel for one or couple of nights stay.

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

Its been memorable trip to Rovaniemi last week and we stayed at Awakens. Very helpful staff with clean and neat rooms. Location was idle, 5min walk from Arktikum. Thankfully weather was good though it was not a tourist season hence low tourist traffic. Highly recommending.

We stayed here for a conference at the Arktikum. This place was significantly less expensive than some of the other suggested hotels. The location is great, and it's only a short walk to either the Arktikum or the city centre. This hotel is clean and tidy, and offers a decent breakfast. The beds are comfy and the showers are excellent... More

A basic hotel but clean and friendly. It's not much to look at but it is functional. The sauna's a great addition and the breakfast and buffet offers good value. It's on the main drag so all the shops are easily accessible.

I stayed for about 5 days. The staff were helpful. The breakfasts were great. Location great. Close to the Artikum. The halls could be improved, the place could use some sprucing up though. It would be great if it had a coin operated laundry. It cost $10Euros to do your washing. Still its cheap and comfortable. Its better value than... More
