We stayed for 2 nights in Scandic Rovaniemi at the end of March 2014 as we came to Rovaniemi to visit Santa. Hotel is very nice and clean. We stayed in standard room with 2 twin beds and you can join the beds together. Our room and bathroom in the room was very clean and the room was warm and... More

Hello and greetings from the Arctic Circle! There is no doubt the winter is about to be over pretty soon here in Rovaniemi. Can you believe it but the weather forecast for next Sunday & Monday promised us almost +10 degrees and sunshine! It might not sound that warm but it is almost like summer for us. Great! Thank you...

I visited yesterday for one night and the hotel was brilliant! Room very spacious and bathroom with a wet room with all amenities provided. Bed was comfy and nice touch of the reindeer patterned seat and the reindeer blankets too. Breakfast pretty good and varied with hot and cold food. Definitely would stay again!

After reading some of the reviews I was a little bit worried before we arrived to Scandic Rovaniemi. Luckily, our experience was wonderful. We (2 adults and 3 children) stayed at the hotel for a week in two adjacent rooms. From the moment we arrived until we left the hotel the staff was incredibly accommodating – the rep. at the... More

This hotel was very nice and easy to get to, I stayed from March 14 - March 18, 2014. Take the shuttle to the city from the airport for 7 euro one way, you are dropped off at the hotel. My room was nice even though it was a little colder than I would have liked. Breakfast had a lot... More

Hi! The last few days have been just wonderful here at the Arctic Circle. The sun is shining and the day temperature is just above 0 degrees which is perfect!

Overall this hotel is acceptable but overpriced. The hotel is dated and the service (although everyone is very nice) is slow. It is not a bad hotel but if you were going for a romantic stay with your partner then I think you would be disappointed. The bed was nice to sleep on but I am confident that the sheets... More

Sometimes there are no choices and you take what you get. For the price they were asking this was a poor choice as hotel is really old worn out. It was clean, however, and staff were very friendly although busy with all the Russian families spending their New Year vacations in Lapland area. Bed was comfortable but thin walls and... More

Hrrr! It is -27 degrees outside! Oh man it is cold but then on the other hand I believe we'll get used to it if this kind of coldness lasts for a week or two more. So finally things are back to normal after the very unusual weather conditions during New Year's time. Thank you for staying with us in... More

I travel on business to Finland often and as a Scandic member I always try to stay in their hotels. This was a family stay as visiting Santa park. This hotel seriously needs a facelift. Don't get me wrong, hotel is clean, staff friendly and helpful and central to the town and 10 minutes to santa park. Just needs freshening... More

I guess they assigned us lower floor, it's because we look like group traveller, with voucher. Rooms are average and so so, some furniture are outdated. Services at the reception's ok, but definitely can be better! Location's quite good, and within walking distance, you;d able to walk to the centre of rovaniemi.
