Lovely hotel well equipped with Gym, swimming pool, Sauna and kids play area. I didn't like the changing rooms and shower area as it was one big room with no privacy. The restaurant overlooked a sports hall were we watched a game of volleyball. Rooms were basic but clean and comfortable, Food and drinks as with the rest of the... More

We spent one night in a cheaper dorm-like room in Kammi building. In the morning we both had allergy symptoms (which we've never had in any other hotel so I wouldn't consider us sensitive). The symptoms were gone within a day, ie. when we got home. The room itself was what we paid for and expected, it had two separate... More

I had wonderful experience in Santasport. Rooms are simple but very cosy and clean, the hotel has wonderful sport amenities. The staff is very king and helpful, all of them speak English. Only downside is that they do not have 24h reception service but we did not have a problem with that. Restaurant could be better but food was still... More

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
