I made the reservation by calling the hotell about 15 min before arrival and got really good service and nice price. Really pleasant staff and an excellent scandinvian restaurant with a beautifull scenery. Breakfast was tasty and children loved the woffles. We liked! Room was ok and it was nice that we got one with a sauna!

Reading all the reviews of this hotel and I find some truth in all of them. The hotel has had its best days, I'm sure. Still, the quality of the beds is very good (boxspring). We had our own private sauna; an extra which is included in the room tarif. The room and especially the bathroom could do with a... More

Lapland Hotel Sky Ounasvaara has one of the best locations in Finland. It is a pity that the rooms are so dated, and to be honest not only the rooms. The service was friendly, and the restaurant very good. Perhaps the best kitchen in Rovaniemi. There is a reason for not to renovate the hotel, but still...

Perfect location and great stuff. But the rooms seem run-down. Limestone and silverfishes in the bathroom (#108), loose carpets. Nothing big, but a series of tiny 'shouldn't be like that' issues... But the restaurant is a MUST,

2 nights with my family in a big room with sauna. Location is really good, personnel (at least the ones we met) really good. But the hotel itself has had its best days somewhere in the 80's with the most of the interior from the era. Hope the success of the restaurant's chef(s) in international competitions as well as the... More

hyvällä paikalla oleva hotelli, jonka sisustus ja toiminnot on jäänyt päivittämättä tähän päivään. Hotel location is excellent, but the hotel facilities and interior has passed by long time ago.... Restaurant is great.

Professional staff, log fire in reception and rooms spacious enough for 3 people with the added luxury of a private sauna. If they added a fridge it would be perfect. Rovaniemi has some drab housing blocks and little to see other than the spectacle of people walking and snowmobiling on the river, so staying on a snowy hilltop surrounded by... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel. This hotel is not located within walking distance to the city center but you can catch the publc bus for 3 euro each way. There is no lift as it's only 2 storey high. There is a roof top where you can see the northern lights if you are lucky. But, there are... More

Stayed here as part of a thomsons package. The hotel is at the top of a ski slope, friendly staff in the hotel and helpful. There is a roof top terrace ideally for looking for the Northern Lights. The meals in the buffet are fantastic both dinner and tea and breakfast has something for everybody. The restaurant has fantastic views... More

We (grandparents, wife and child) stayed half board in a log cabin. The cabin was well equipped, warm and even included a sauna. Excellent! The main hotel restaurant looks great, but the food is terrible. Poor choice and low quality. We would stay again (in the cabin), but definitely go self catering.
