Not a luxory but a normal hotel in the centre of Rovaniemi. Premises are ok, but slighly worse than Scandic average. Personnally I was really disappointed that first time ever I did not get frequent traveller points in Scandic due reservation's contract price. For me this is a reason to avoid this hotel in future.

Hotel located in the heart of city centre, but it is really dated. Room smell like from 1980s. It is functional. Plastic shower certain in the bathroom, seriously it is 2015 in Finland. Surely some Ikea stuff could do better than that. Staff are really friendly and helpful, food in the restaurant is not too bad either. It was a... More

Really good place. Decent price and good location. Breakfast also great Altho on Sundays they should open the bfast earlier to allow those flying back to Helsinki that day to eat as the one airport bus leaves earlier. They should also allow for private saunas at a reasonable price

Hi! Thank you for your positive feedback. I appreciate your ideas and the very good point regarding our Sunday breakfasts. We have to think if we prepared our breakfast half an hour earlier on Sundays than we do now. I don't know if half an hour is enough but then again there's always a possibility for an early breakfast when... More

I stayed in this hotel twice in the same week, one day before and one day after our trip further north (to Levi). We came by a car from the airport, and it was easy to find. Public parking is next to the hotel, and requires payment 24 hour a day. It costs 8 Euro for one day. The hotel... More

Hello! I guess it is already quite warm in Israel although we are only in the middle March now? It's been pretty warm and unbelievable sunny also in Rovaniemi but luckily we've still got a lots of snow here. You should have seen the northern lights in the night before last. It was quite a show although I missed the... More

The city (town) is pretty small and the opportunities for decent accommodation somewhat limited. This hotel is the only hotel not seemingly exclusively designed for tourists. Sure there are reindeer on the bed cover but the hotel functions perfectly well if you are here on business as well. Features like a decent breakfast, a car rental office, ironing room, as... More

Hello! Thank you for the review, it was very nice of you.

Certain details are crucial when staying in a hotel but then again there are many, many things which can be considered... More

I was here for 3 nights as part of a group of 25. The rooms are clean and comfortable but the food is pretty mediocre, buffet style and the staff have a tendency to tidy up before the end of the dinner service There is table service for drinks but it is unbelievably slow and your dinner will be finished...

The Scandic is a little tired but still an excellent hotel. The staff were all very kind helpful and efficient even though the hotel was full. We checked out early because we were on a trip but they let us shower and change in the public sauna - perfect! Breakfast is of high quality and broad choice. The room was... More

Perfect location right in the center but not noisy. The staff were wonderful. They could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was very good with an excellent variety. We were fortunate in being upgraded to a superior room with a private sauna which was lovely. Beds were very comfortable. We couldn't get a late checkout as the hotel was completely... More

We stayed at Scandic hotel for the days that we visited Rovaniemi. The location was great! It was in the city center and across the hotel was a big mall with supermarkets. Everything was within the walking distance. The rooms were nice and the staffs were very professional!
