If I'm on a romantic holiday, you want every little detail to be perfect. But on a short business trip I'm totally satisfied with fast WiFi, comfy bed, breakfast and Central location and this hotel does those all. Not the fanciest exterior and rooms needs little renovation too, but front desk was friendly, hotel was clean and sauna in my... More

The personel in the hotel lobby were great on all days of our stays. They gave great advice about the services in the hotel and in the city center and made me feel very welcome. The rooms were however a bit frumpy so I wished I would have gotten the superior room instead of the standard one...

Hello! My office is located just behind our front desk. Sometimes I just stop what I'm doing at my desk, get up and go for a walk to see what is going on with my colleagues. It is very nice to notice that my colleagues seem to have fun when they work. I believe it is one reason why our... More

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.

Moi E K! Thank you for choosing Scandic during your trip to Rovaniemi and for your review here on Tripadvisor. Scandic has been opening new hotels and renovating the old ones quite fast during the past few years. That might be the reason why you mentioned Scandic Rovaniemi being a little under Scandic average. That is actually true but I... More

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

Hello! Thank you for taking some time and posting your review, I really appreciate it. I'm sorry my reply took this long but now I'm back on the track again. We know we are not the newest hotel in Rovaniemi but then again we don't let it disturb us for two reasons. We are patient enough to wait for the... 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. I think you are right on the spot with your feedback because to my opinion you emphasized very relevant issues from a hotel guest point of view. 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.
