I came with my wife for a Lapland Safari and stayed 6 nights. Rich Breakfast, Good location, Large Room with free WIFI . I have stayed in the old hotel building and the front door of the building was closed every night from 8PM and people could not use the elevators and went up using the stairs.

There are better hotels for the same price. That's the main thing about this hotel. The rooms and hotel are a bit old. The breakfast is good with a large variety. The location is good (since Rovaniemi is kinda small)

This hotel is centrally located in Rovaniemi, Lapland (Finland). Close to the small downtown (shops, restaurants, commercial centers). Usually it is full with groups, but enough space is available in the dinning room. Breakfasts and dinners are buffet style. Rooms are a little beat small but OK. Shower is tiny, and 5 inches to each side will be blessed...

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and all things considered it's a good place to stay when visiting rovaniemi. The hotel is located in a very good location near the restaurants and bars and shopping center. Rooms and other facilities and amenities are average at best. The food is ok as well but nothing the write home about.

Pohjanhovi was the very first international hotel in Lapland already before WW II and its name used to quarantee high quality. Not any more. Operated by Finnish Rantasipi chain the place has been neglected, not only by forgetting maintenance but also by running down all services. It is simply under-staffed, badly run hotel that has lost the competition. It is... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night only, as I was transferring to a friend's place the next day. I was pretty deceived for a 4 star hotel. I arrived in Rovaniemi with two big luggage and when I entered the reception and asked for my room, nobody proposed me to help with the luggage. I asked but then... More

We were part of a large group and we had a smooth checkin. We stayed for 4 nights. The deluxe rooms were a bit small and the bathrooms were a bit strange. The shower cabinet had water flowing out of the cabinet area and made a pool of water in the bathroom. The view from the room was great, overlooking... More

We booked this hotel as a last chance since it was very late and we could not find anything else. My experience is not totally negative but I would not recommend to stay here. Let's start with what I found good: - the position, very convenient to reach the main safari companies, shops and many restaurants - the view on... More
