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

We have travelled the world. And I have never experienced rudeness or arrogance as bad as this!! They have no idea of customer service. Every thing you request is a problem. Good hotel but eat elsewhere!! The food selection is poor. They cannot help you if it is off the menu, even for a bowl of chips for the kids.... More

Stayed here after a visit to the Ice Hotel. Pleasantly surprised. Great value for a hotel right in town. Clean rooms and pleasant service. The hotel has a great but busy restaurant. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Nice hotel that offers wifi for free and included breakfast. There is a sauna opened for females 1500 to 1700 and males 1700 to 1900 , which is not much is you arrive a bit late . Rooms are not big but ok and clean , the staff is very friendly .

Stayed here for 3 nights in June 2014. The hotel is right in the centre of town, you can get the airport bus to/from airport right to the door. Very helpful staff, good quality breakfast and 2 very good restaurants for lunch or dinner. Only bad point the free Wi-Fi was very slow.

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,...
