Sokos Hotel Rovaniemi was a pleasant experience. It does not provide luxury, but is well maintained and the staff (at least those I encountered) were friendly and helpful. I have stayed here before also, but since the last visit the rooms were renovated and the result is great. The hotel includes two restaurants, Fransmanni (French style) and Amarillo (Mexican/Burgers). Unfortunately,... More

There is not a lot to do in the town, we visited venues out from the town so all we required was a clean, quiet room. This is what we got. No frills, basic room. The business centre is just a computer on a mezzanine type area but the computer and printer both work. There is a bar area that... More

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.

Nice hotel with good location and friendly staff. Music is played very loud in the nightglub which might disturb some in certain part of hotel. I will propably stay in this hotel the next time I visit Rovaniemi, which is the most magical and relaxed place.
