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

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.
