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

The hotel was located at the center & could easily accessed the supermarket & restaurant nearby. Staff was friendly & helpful! Airport bus shuttle fron airport was convenient!It took around 15min tonSanta Claus Village. The room was a bit small & breakfast option was too little.

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
