Perhaps the hotel doesn't deserve a 1 rating, but we arrived early and they told us that our rooms were not ready, that would be OK, but I sent a message weeks earlier warning them that I would arrive early, and while we were waiting 3 groups were sent to their rooms (all of which spoke fluent Finnish, curiously enough)....

Well I think its great for family and for sport lovers only. I didnt find nice to see that the swiming pool is next to the reception. You see people swiming, I would prefer to have some privacy. Then when we went to swim, my boyfriend was not allowed because he didnt have a proper swim short. Luckily we didnt... More

This was an unusual place for us to stay. Nothing wrong with the room or the service but it didn't feel like a hotel. We arrived early evening when I think the whole of Rovaniemi had headed to the sports centre for their daily exercise class. Parking was a nightmare for us as we spent a good 30 mins chasing...

We chose this hotel for our short trip to Rovaniemi as the hotel offers so many possibilities to spend an active winter holiday. It is situated on Ounasvaara hill, a little outside of the town centre, but still close enough; there was a bus line rather close, and some people even walked downtown. The hotel is right next to skiing... More

Stayed here for 4 nights the week before xmas with Thomson. Friendly and helpful staff behind reception desk, the canteen and nutmeg Nic the Thomson rep! The rooms are basic but clean and with all amenities you need for a short stay as the room is only used for a shower and sleep! Although the 3rd bed was a pull... More

This is my second time in Rovaniemi. Decided to stay at the Santasport due to its facilities. Rooms are basic but very clean and ideal for a 5 night stay. Swimming pool is lovely. Opportunity to use the gym and bowling alley would be entertainment for kids. Only downside is location - a 30 minute walk into town for 14... More

I went for a 3 days stay with my husband and 4 year old boy. The rooms are really basic, but super clean. It was 2 single beds put together and a narrow foldable mattress on the ground for my boy. We used the spa area, that was nice, with different pools and different temperatures, ranging from 7 to 38... More

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
