Location A 10/15min drive from the airport and right in the centre. Fairly easy to find but my sat Nav took me to a different street. Its right in the centre and the big Santa Sign helps. The car park is located to the right of the main door and a big brown electrically operated, you will need your key... More

What a brilliant choice of all kinds of food for a great start to the day. Our 2 young children so much enjoyed the brilliant play area... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Well located in the city center, however fairly quiet. Despite the name, no Christmas-style decorations (at least in July). Clean Scandinavian-style room, comfortable bed. Room amenities also include a safe large enough for a laptop and coffee maker. Spacious bathroom and good tub/shower - the only inconvenience is that the shower door only goes half way,... More

This was the first place where we stayed in Finland during this trip. Scandinavian style hotel was not something that we experienced before. Slim bed with soft Mattress. But this is like a Scandinavian style so It probably most of the hotel in the region will like that. Hotel is central Located. There a supermarket just 5 mins walked inside... More

The rooms on the 6th floor have their own private saunas with a view over the city of Rovaniemi. Lovely! Nice breakfast, great location and modern facilities. The rooms were simple and basic but very modern and clean with nice touches of Sami culture. Great value for money.

We stayed in Villa Hanhi, about 3km from Rovaniemi, which is also part of the Hotel Santa Claus chain. This was so cute! It was a beautiful big wooden cabin in the snow, just down the hill from a ski field. There was a sauna in it so we could relax in the evenings, as well as a decent television.... More
