We felt very comfortable in this hotel. The staff were helpful and made us feel at home. They were able to advise us about tours in the area to our total satisfaction. Our room was big and warm in minus 9 degrees. The hotel is very clean and even the cleaning lady speaks English,

The hotel is situated in a convenience location with few minutes walk to the city centre and is right next to the river. Our room is not in the main building and have to walk a long way as well as changing lift, which is very inconvenience. The room itself is very dated and basic.

We stayed in this hotel during Christmas peak time and the hotel was overly crowded. We traveled to Rovaniemi by train from Helsinki. We reached the Rovaniemi station at around 7:30 in the morning. There was a local city bus waiting at the time of train arrival and luckily enough found that the bus stop was just beside the hotel.... More

This hotel is just a short walk away from city center where restaurants and shops are. Room and hotel is tired looking and have definitely seen better days. Kettle in our room was very rusty and we had to ask for it to be changed. Key reason why I marked this below average was because our room door lock was... More

Pohjanhovi did excellent job in keeping our party of ~200 visitors from around the globe happy. Decent breakfast buffet. Good and friendly service, nice surroundings with good jogging opportunities. The hotel good soon use some renovation but it is still ok.

Hotel reception were efficient and friendly. The room was a little cramped for 4 of us but then we only really needed to sleep there. Restaurant was great with a large selection of food and was really good value. The location of the hotel is fantastic, very close to everything and the staff were very helpful. I would definitely recommend... More

There seems to be some negative feedback about this hotel, but fortunately for me, the entire stay was a great one for me. Friendly hotel staff, fast check-in, good breakfast, clean and comfortable room overlooking the Candle Bridge and Kemijoki River. I would recommend this hotel.

Let's start with the location: excellent, superb. It's located next to the river Kemijoki. This grants the hotel a splendid view. The latter is enhanced in winter time when the landscape is full of snow and the river is frozen. The hotel is also at the heart of the city, literally a few minutes walk from pretty much anything a... More

This is the second time me and my family have stayed here, the location is excellent and the views over the river are a bonus. The hotel is a little dated but clean and very warm (was as low as minus 22), the hotel staff are friendly enough and are helpful if needed. We were half board and found the... More

We stayed here for just 3 days and found it central to shops, tour operators, local bus route to Santa Claus Village. Right by the river it had magnificent night views of the sky and the bridge and walking distance to seclusion for the northern lights. Rooms were cleaned daily and we were lucky enough to have a view of... More
