Basic hotel, with quite worn rooms. I had extremely bad luck with my stay when they gave me a room from the 2nd floor without telling mee that the band would be playing til' 3.30AM just under my room! That is just unacceptable to even have that kind of room with full ot any price!

To visit Arctic Circle area just before the famous mid-summer in Finland, Rovaniemi area has started this "sun never goes down" session a little bit earlier. Also in May and especially in June the brightness and beautiful nature surrounding this Lapland's biggest town. There can be seen all marks of Summer, just beginning, not all trees are still full green... More

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 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
