This hotel is located in the heart of Rovaniemi. Everything is at hand: shopping, museum and even the local football stadium :) Hotel is build in the beginning of 90´s but still in a good condition. The entrance hall is big and nice and works also as a good restaurant (ala carte & breakfast). The Scandic hotel chain cares about... More

Hi Rumpari and thank you for your review! Our location is just superb right in the middle of everything, I agree. Rovaniemi is a pretty groovy town because for example our location is in the very heart of the city but nature and total silence is just a stone's throw away from us. I think it is pretty cool to...

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

Hello! A really big thank you for your review! I'm very happy to notice you found many positive things from your stay with us although I totally understand your feelings about the hotel room. We are painfully aware of the fact that our ventilation system is not effective enough when the outside temperature gets high enough. I think this is... More

Very well located hotel - near the pedestrian streets and shopping centers. There is paid parking - should pay for the card after the departure in a separate machine. Polite staff. Clean rooms. A bit old fashioned interior rooms, but overall the hotel is like.

This hotel is in the centre of town and just across the road from a shopping mall. It's about 10 minutes' walk from the impressive Arktikum Musem (see our separate review). Our room (no. 419) was quite spacious and clean, though the furniture was a bit outdated. It had a TV with a few English and French language channels, a... More

We intended to stay here for two nights during our trip to Northern Finland in January. However the level of service we received from a certain receptionist made us change our mind. So thanks to her we decided to move to another hotel in order to avoid having similar "unforgettable" experience again. We do not have anything else particularly negative to... More
