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

The room we had was tiny and the use of space in it was not good. There were no bedside tables or lamps. Instead there was a large armchair! The double bed was really small and the sheet did not fit. Instead of one double sheet there were two singles which overlapped in the middle. One of the reasons we... More

We have booked for 4 nights in this hotel during Christmas last year, but we had to cancel the last night, because the room we were staying was so cramped, and it was just so crowded every common area we went to inside the hotel. About the room situation: As we checked into the hotel, we realised that the room... More

The rooms come up to a 3 stars hotel like Motel One. For check-in we had to wait about 15 mins. One of the receptionists had to finish a call and other told us her computer is broken. To have a breakfast (wide choice and really delicious) we had to beg a waitress to clean up a table for us.... More

The hotel is ok: very good breakfast, free internet wi.fi in the hall and in rooms. Rooms are quite small, it's true, but comfortable. Must say 2 bad things. 1 - not everyone at reception are polite and gentle. A woman is perfect (the one who received us at arrival), she asks you how was your day, with kindness and... More

Nice, clean and quiet hotel in perfect location center of Rovaniemi. Just behind Sampo -center. Room was clean and at least 3rd floor was quiet. Room where we stayed was bit small but handlable. Breakfast was good and selection big enough.

I read other reviews before choosing City Hotel and was a bit worried as others comments talked about tiny shower and lots of noise. I specifically asked for a room with a bath to avoid the tiny shower issue and this turned out to be a good idea. The rooms are compact and good for a short stay. nicely decorated,... More

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
