When to visit Santa Village in Rovaniemi- Best feeling ever. I felt like its Christmas time even in July..it's summer and no snow.. I still love it. Seeing Santa Claus is the best part..I would love to come back there in winter time and ride with his sleigh.

We stayed in this hotel in the middle of winter. It was warm and comfortable. The rooms are not luxurious, but clean and comfortable. There is a bar and restaurant on the ground floor which is convenient at the end of a long day.In the morning they do a buffet breakfeast in the restaurant. The breakfast had a huge amount... More

Huone oli uudistettu, kylpyhuone oli todella kiva, siisti ja tyylikäs. Hotelli sijaitsee aivan keskustassa, kävelymatkan päässä illanvietto- ja ostospaikoista. Aivan ihana Ravintola Nili on ihan naapurissa! Ilmaista parkkipaikkaa ei ole, hotellin parkkihalli maksoi kympin yhdeltä yöltä. Se olikin oikeastaan ainoa huono puoli. Aamupala oli ihan huippuhyvä ja runsas, mukana oli vähän Lapin herkkujakin! The room was modern and the bathroom... More

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
