Hotel is centrally located in the city centre. Room is small and shower access is small. Water from shower could fill the whole bathroom. Be careful. There is no air condition and it could be uncomfortable in summer even with a desk fan. Breakfast is good quality and choice. Receeption staff especially Tiia is excellent. She always make you feel... More

Low rise 4 storey hotel. Room appears to have been renovated in the last few years and was reasonably clean. No air conditioning but a fan was provided. A small side window with insect screen protection could be slightly opened for some air but then the passing traffic noise became a problem. Small room with limited bench space and a... More

Unless there is a better hotel in Rovaniemi, then you can't complain about this one. Our room was not too small and quite comfortable. Although some other rooms may be small. There is no air conditionally so it can get quite warm in the room. Its location is good, close to restaurants and shops, with a 24 hr supermarket just... More

The rooms are quite small and the bathroom especially so. Dining room was quite good but when it becomes the breakfast room is is very cramped. Considering the location of the city it is not bad and quite close to the admittedly quiet town centre. WiFi is very slow.

The rooms are small, but they are well laid out, the bathroom is not a glass box, the shower is fully enclosed and the power plugs are embedded in the top of the desk! The wifi is fast and easy to use. All features that score points with me. The two included breakfasts were excellent,as was the dinner we had... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night. Few comments: The hotel has a nice looking restaurant, but the waiters are seriously understaffed. We counted one waiter and we (group of 20) had to wait 15 minutes before our orders were taken and it took another hour before any food appeared. Our food was cold. Another annoyance was that there... More

The City Hotel in Rovaniemi is a good hotel, with nice rooms. Still, either the rooms and the bathrooms are too small. For two people it gets a bit tricky... The breakfast is ok-ish, but not something to be remembered. Also, I didn't find the staff to be paying that much attention to the guests. Perhaps they have so many... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights while on a tour in Scandinavia. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was small but well appointed. The bathroom was also small but the shower was excellent. The amenities were similar to other hotels in the region. It had free coffee making in the room. The in-room WiFi... More

The rooms are quite good and the restaurant has many varieties in the food items and drinks. Also enjoy the reading area near the reception which... More

We stayed at the City Hotel as part of our tour, and given that this is not a major city, it was one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in so far. The room was a bit small but still allowed plenty of room to walk around without getting in each others' way. The bathroom had the same problem... More
