We stopped there for couple of nights before we go to Santa village hotel. The hotel is Cosy and the rooms are functioned enough for what we wanted it for. the staff was very friendly but they hardly spoke English. This hotel is just in town with shopping mall across the road and some restaurants sporadic around. nothing fancy but... More

Hi! Rovaniemi is very international town from the tourism point of view. Statistics tell that Rovaniemi is the 3rd biggest destination in Finland for travellers to arrive from abroad. Therefore good language skills are needed in customer service duties. It is always a benefit if we spoke more languages than just Finnish and English but then again only these two... More

Stayed one night and had a room facing a bussy street with a lot of noise. The receptionist was friendly. The decor reminded me of Russian state hotell in the late 80s, and the hotell is in need of a upgrade. The sauna on the toopfloor was super, it had an outdoor terrace for cooling down and splendid view. The... More

Hello! Yes, to my opinion the busiest street corner in Rovaniemi is exactly in front of us. This kind of location gives us advantage but has also some drawbacks. One drawback is the traffic noise which feels like neverending story but is not. Nevertheless I can imagine that it might be difficult to sleep if you are not used to... More

Very nice and clean hotel. The staff at check in was great, simple and fast. The room was OK, clean and with a comfortable bed. My only complaint was a summer festival outside that was laud. It was not the hotel problem. I would stay here again. Thanks

Hi! I can see that you travelled to Rovaniemi from far away. We don't get so many guests from the US so I'm glad you visited us in Lapland and had an enjoyable stay at Scandic with your family. Thank you a lot for your nice review. I agree with you on our staff as I often observe and listen... More

Yes the Scandic is a little dated but no biggie, it isn't as bad as some reviews make it out to be. The one thing I didn't like about this Hotel was the lack of service from the unhelpful staff on the front desk. Myself and my 69 year old mum arrived laden with heavy suitcases, they didn't offer any... More

Hello! I agree. But then on the other hand our hotel among many other things is a matter of opinion and we must value all the opinions. I respect your opinion a lot because it is honest and has a good point. I feel bad about our poor service at our reception especially because we really should be able to... More

Good location but that's about it - nothing else impresses with Scandic in Rovaniemi. Building is hideously ugly, rooms are old fashioned and seriously outdated and you feel like being in a 80's ferry to Sweden. Very disappointing breakfast also so next time I'll choose another hotel to stay in Rovaniemi.

Hello! I've never been on an 80's ferry to Sweden but somehow I can imagine what you mean. Well, our rooms were renovated not so long ago and I'm sure the next big renovation is just around the corner. It saddens me to read you'll choose another hotel for your next trip to Rovaniemi but of course you are entitled... More

Very central location, clean rooms and everything functioned well. Breakfast exceeded expectations. Parking was reasonably prised, but in a hotel like this outside parking in an open parking area should be free of charge for hotel guests.
