Stayed here one night as part of a driving trip of Lapland. We chose this hotel as it was in the city centre and had free parking. The location is great for accessing Rovaniemi's central amenities (shopping, restaurants etc.) and if you have a car it's only a 10 minute drive to Santa Claus Village. The hotel itself is good,...

Location is good, close to shopping area. Reception is good and helpful. But too hot in the room! Room and Bathroom are quite small. Breakfast has a wide variety. Clean and tidy. Too close to the bar and noisy at night. Restaurant is very full, advance booking is needed.

Centrally located hotel in downtown Rovaniemi within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The room was somewhat small but beautifully decorated, attention paid to small details and one of the best beds (fairly soft) that I have had since a long time when staying at hotels. The room was spotlessly clean and had the basic amenities, minibar, kettle with tea... More

Breakfast amazing. Great Location... Room very small though.. felt very claustrophobic. Heating in the room on all night long and I couldn't switch off. Had to open the small part next to the window. Bathroom really small too... shower was really good, although there is no way bathroom won't be flooded after a shower. The hotel should really look into... More

Dear Raquel, Thank you for staying with us and also thank for your feedback concerning your stay. I am sorry to hear that you were not pleased with the heating, at this unusually warm start of winter we have not reacted quickly enough for the changing outside temperature. I also apologize that you were disturbed regarding the "do not disturb"... More

Where do we start, we LOVED everything from the attentive staff who went above and beyond our expectations. The early check in and late check out, the use of the gym, the AMAZING breakfast, location, great rooms, comfy beds. Weve been travelling for 4 months all over the world and this is by far the best hotel weve stayed in.... More

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
