I was there for just one night to visit Santa Clause Village and the lovely city. I took train from Helsinki and arrive at 8am in Rovaniemi. It's about 20 mins walk from the train station. (It may be quickly if you don't have a huge luggage as I did). I arrived at the lobby around 9am and they are... More

The hotel's location is perfect, right in town near Lordi's Square, walkable to all the places you might have booked trips from, and has an airport shuttle service that you don't need to pre-book. Also, the staff were really helpful, Aleksi in particular was so cheerful, it brightens up a cold day to get such good service! My room was... More

We had 3 nights at the city hotel, it is lovely and quaint. Highlights: The staff here are amazing!!! All were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is beautiful with a great selection. Rooms are beautifully decorated. Lowlights: The rooms are tiny, so small that moving around is difficult. The showers are the same. It didn't bother us much but be... More

Paper thin walls meant we could hear everything from the rooms around us. We are not normally light sleepers, and the neighbours weren't being particularly but their footsteps, TV's and doors opening and closing kept us awake. The bathrooms are so small you literally can't take a step in any direction. The wifi connection was very slow, and so weak... More

My whole experience is not too bad, but the bathroom has let down the whole experience. Internet: I don't have any problem with that despite what other reviewers said here. Staff: Cold at first, but quickly warmed up. They are helpful and friendly. Location: Right in city centre! Stone throw from a big shopping mall. Can't beat it. Check-in: Strict... More

The service was great. The restaurants were exceptional. The room was very small, but adequate with good amenities. The bathroom was even smaller and the minuscule shower was extremely difficult to get into, with no turning space. The one frustrating thing was the very slow wifi/ internet service. We were there for 4 days and for 2 days there was... More

Lovely hotel! Great location in the heart of the city of Rovaniemi! The rooms were quite nice and the service was very friendly. I highly recommend this hotel. The only downside was the local bar across the street because there were drunk people approaching us at nights when we're outside the hotel for a smoke.

Not sure about other hotel in the city, this is by far the worst hotel I have stayed in Europe. Rooms are ridiculously small, shower room, if you are over 80kg, probably not able to squeeze. Connection to the WiFi hardly stays, dropped off every other second. Rooms are reasonable clean. Not many facility in hotel, other than a lobby... More
