This hotel is well located in the center of Rovaniemi. We got a very good deal for a four bedded room. Also the breakfast buffet was GREAT. A large choice of fresh and hot food. In the evening we were even able to have a small walk in the pedestrian street before going back to the hotel with the kids.... More

If you need hotel near Rovaniemi, Scandic hotel a clear choice, it is in the center and the hotel is clean and modern, the restaurant is closed on Sundays but there are several restaurants nearby, the breakfast was perfect. The staff were very helpful and will certainly use the hotel again if I come back in the area.

I stayed in a room which had two beds with my finnish mates (couple) and between us three I found that there was plenty of room for storage and plenty of room for when we were in the room! The breakfast that was included in our price was excellent as there was such variety at a great value. The sauna... More

I was in Rovaniemi for business. I chose this hotel because it was said to be accessible for wheelchair. It was indeed easy to get in and there was an elevator. The 'accessible' room, however, is really small. The bathroom was ok but in the rest of the room moving was challenging. I had to park my wheelchair in the... More

Hi Urhonen! Thank your for your polite review. We know our two accessible rooms are a bit small to meet today's requirements. We have thought about the issue and tried to find out a couple of small details we could change in the rooms in order to improve the functionality. However I'm afraid nothing big will happen in the near... More

I stayed here for 1 night during a business trip to Lapland. The hotel is conveniently located right in the center of Rovaniemi and easy to get to. Parking is a bit limited and costs 8€ a night. The rooms could use some renovating, but despite the age they were nice and clean. Free WIFI works great and the steak... More

We booked a standard family room, and knew it faced the courtyard. What we didn't know is that it had no air from outside. The window faced the atrium and the restaurant, which was fine, but it would have been really nice to get some fresh air. There was a fan in the room, and a breath of cool air... More
