When you entered to the hotel the lobby is very small and full of asian turists. The room was ok, quiet and there is everything you need, but you see that it is worn out. On the TV at your room was information that the breakfast is served daily from 6.30-10.00. When the door to the (worn out) breakfast room... More

I wondered why I couldn't find any really nice hotels prior to my visit to Rovaniemi. Truthfully, there's nothing really nice in Rovaniemi amid the wonderful winter setting and hoards of Asian tourist busses. I rented a car at the airport and had little trouble finding the downtown hotel. Most of the buildings in Rovaniemi look the same; basic Russian... More

The hotel is centrally located near the Lapland safari and artic museum. Well maintained. Front office staff are extending excellent service and speak English fluently. Room maintenance needs improvement in changing bath towels and being a cold place Moistureriser or cold cream can be given as compliment. We enjoyed snow mobile and reindeer safari.
