We've just come back from Lapland having stayed at the Santa sport Hotel. After taking part in the snow activities by day, it was lovely to dip into the pool in the evenings and sample the superb spa baths. We also had a game of ten pin bowling whilst at the hotel. The breakfast was fine, bacon, scrambled eggs, cold... More

Just heading home after staying here for a 4 night holiday. This was meant to be a holiday of a lifetime which is not an experience you will have with this accommodation. The hotel itself had a nice clean room and swimming pool but the eaterie is worse than poor, it's like being in a school canteen. The excursions were... More

Comparing with many hotels & rental cabins around Rovaniemi, Santa Sport seems to be the only place where you could get a really cheap room for big group travelers with low budget. It's not a fancy 4 or 5 star hotel, but I still like it. Will definitely come back to stay here next time we visit Rovaniemi.

This isn't really a hotel, it's a training academy that happens to have rooms available for the athletes. No doubt, the sports facilities look amazing but if you're here as a "hotel" guest then don't mistake the place for a comfortable 4 star hotel. The "hotel" rooms are very sparse with hard floors, single beds and bright fluorescent lighting. A... More

We stayed here to break up our trip as we headed for our week's holiday in Salla and it was fine for that purpose. We had a little problem finding it but that was probably more down to the sat nav. It is primarily a sports centre with a hotel attached but the rooms are clean and practical (and even... More
