The rooms are small, but they are well laid out, the bathroom is not a glass box, the shower is fully enclosed and the power plugs are embedded in the top of the desk! The wifi is fast and easy to use. All features that score points with me. The two included breakfasts were excellent,as was the dinner we had... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night. Few comments: The hotel has a nice looking restaurant, but the waiters are seriously understaffed. We counted one waiter and we (group of 20) had to wait 15 minutes before our orders were taken and it took another hour before any food appeared. Our food was cold. Another annoyance was that there... More

The City Hotel in Rovaniemi is a good hotel, with nice rooms. Still, either the rooms and the bathrooms are too small. For two people it gets a bit tricky... The breakfast is ok-ish, but not something to be remembered. Also, I didn't find the staff to be paying that much attention to the guests. Perhaps they have so many... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights while on a tour in Scandinavia. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was small but well appointed. The bathroom was also small but the shower was excellent. The amenities were similar to other hotels in the region. It had free coffee making in the room. The in-room WiFi... More

The City Hotel is located in the main city which has access to the city shopping centre and is located in central Rovaniemi. The hotel has all the modern amenities with good wifi facility. The rooms are quite good and the restaurant has many varieties in the food items and drinks. Also enjoy the reading area near the reception which... More

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
