I had hoped to stay at either the City hotel or the Santa Claus, but they were both fully booked during my stay, so I opted for one of the legendary and historical hotels in Finland, Pohjanhovi. I was not disappointed. The hotel is located next to the Jatkankynttila bridge in the city centre. Some of the rooms have great... More

Stayed with a group for six nights. The hotel has an excellent location, very close to the town center, right on the river. Rooms were clean and decent, definitely comfortable. Heating was OK. Used the sauna regularly, great place with the pool attached to it. The hotel is mostly used by groups, which might be a nuisance sometimes. Food was... More

Rovaniemi is a small town. Most hotels located along the main street , so there is no big difference between them concerning location. This hotel is situated on river bank therfore lanscapes are nice.. It is next to "LAPLAND SAFARI" building where you can get all relevant equipment and tours.. [LAPLAND TOURS HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!!!] Room size is not big. Over... More

The shower instead of the bathtub would be nice. Charge the batterie of the cellular phone would be easier, if there were more wall sockets in the room. Now it is impossible to see, what time it is, if you wake up in the middle of the night, because the phone is on the floor in a corner of the... More

Also, the bus stop to Santa Claus Village is just 15 meters away and it was convenient. Our room was annex area and this was >100 meter away from... More

My fiancee and I stayed this wonderful hotel for 4 days in January 2014. Luckily we could have a beautiful river view from 4th floor. The room had everything we needed including some awesome Fazer hot chocolate which warmed us up after coming back from freezing outside. Sauna and Swimming pool, as someone else here already mentioned that temperature of... More

Booked with Thomson from the UK as part of their Lapland Xmas Lapland package. Located in the city Centre on the river bank, close to plenty of bars and restaurants. Hotel is a little dated, but is OK as a base to explore. Had a standard twin room that was a reasonable size with a flat screen TV, plenty of... More

Stayed it for 3 nights. I do not believe the hotel is outdated like other reviews. Food was really tasty, it is in a central location and the beds were comfy. Only problem was the rooms were baking but with the time of year it's probably expected that they have the heating up. We went into the pool which looked... More
