I had the great opportunity to go to Rovaniemi in December 2013. Notwithstanding the short days, the people there are fabulous. And nowhere were they more pleasant and accommodating than at City hotel. The young fellow at the front desk was there whenever I went by and always with a smile on his face. The rooms are warm, comfortable and... More

The city Hotel is in the center of town. The rooms are nice with free WiFi. There is also free parking right behind the building. There are lots of Irish pubs in the area as well as other kinds of restaurants. We decided on the restaurant on the ground floor for dinner and it was very good. The included buffet... More

The hotel is centrally located, the rooms are smallish, a little cluttered and dated but are comfortable, functional with a frig, a proper shower, bathroom toiletries and wifi. We were there on a 28 degree day, the rooms were stifling but 28 does not occur often. See my Radisson Blu Copenhagen report. Two tours simultaneously taxed the restaurant at breakfast.

We stayed here for one night on our way back home from the north. We had one of their comfort rooms (ie. the least expensive ones) that have a real wall separating the bathroom instead of the glass. ;) The room was average sized for a Finnish hotel room except for the bathroom which was tiny - not a problem...

City Hotel is in the center of Rovaniemi, within walking distance from the railway and bus station (10 mins walk) and from museums and attractions. The rooms are small but fully equipped, it's amazing how they have fit everything in a rather small space. There are plenty of dark and gold mirrors, dark wooded floors, dark bed cover and furniture,... More

The hotel is five miles south of the Arctic Circle, but with the outside temperature approaching 75-degrees F., the hotel room was almost unbearably hot. The combination of nearly 24 hours of sunshine, an east facing room, no air conditioning, and a tiny screened ventilation grate caused our room to be almost 15-degrees warmer than the outside air temperature. Combined... More

Not a bad 2 night stay at the City Hotel. My room was an average size but as the previous reviewer mentioned, the bathroom was absolutely tiny! The shower consisted of a wrap around screen so I felt like I was camping and it was hard not to splash water around the floor. Breakfast was excellent with many options both... More

This is a fairly central hotel, near shopping centres and walking distance of river. Rooms were very small and the bathroom containing a bath, shower (together) a basin and toilet was miniscule measuring around 2 x 2.5 metres leaving 800mm of free floor space to swing the proverbial cat. An unusual feature of a see through panel from the bedroom... More

Accommodation in Rovaneimi is generally quite expensive. But the breakfast in this hotel is perfect!! Very delicious smoke salmon and bread. Worth to come again just for the breakfast buffet. The room is quite small but the bed is comfortable. Good hot shower.
