Booked independently and directly with the hotel last minute and stayed in the apartments - the 2 bed was a great space with you children - everything you needed if you wanted to self cater including dishwasher. The sauna was a great addition as was the balcony with all the temp gauges to tell you how flippin cold it was!... More

Good location. Room has balcony and it is nice. Near the hotel there are several good restaurants based on tripadvisor rating. People working in this hotel are also nice and friendly. The hotel is a little bit old but ok. Get free breakfast. There are a lot of choices for the breakfast. I would say 8/10 rating for the breakfast.... More

We stayed at the Lapland Hotel Reikonlinna, aka Snowflake Hotel with Thomson Lapland, staying three nights from Dec 20-23 2015. There were 4 couples in our party with 7 children between us from 5 to 8 years old. From touching down at snow-covered Ivalo airport to getting back on the ‘plane again, the experience was one of excitement, awe and... More

We stayed here over Christmas - part of our party stayed in the hotel and the others in the apartments. The hotel was nice, but the hotel room seems a little dated, but comfortable and convenient nevertheless, and nice and warm. The apartments are about a 1-2 minute walk from the hotel, and are more modern, and worth the dash... More

We came back two days before Christmas after 3 night stop. The bar and dining rooms met our expectations for a traditional Finnish hotel in an amazing and beautiful winter wonderland. Log burner in bar really added to the atmosphere especially when Christmas songs played in background. Thomson entertainment in bar for me did spoil the Christmas atmosphere at times.... More

Wow we visited for 4 nights in December can honestly say one of the best holidays we have ever been on. Thomson were fantastic right from the start at Manchester airport. Resort reps and elves made a big impression on our stay and helped it be so magical. Hotel was great, food was OK (something for everybody ) you can... More

We stayed at the Riekonlinna in the town on Sarisellka as part of a 3 day Santa's Lapland trip in Dec 2015. We took our 4 children aged 6-9 and stayed in one of the apartments attached to the hotel. It was a great thing to do just before Christmas and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. Things that might be... More

My son & I stayed here over Christmas. Having booked direct with Santas Lapland, this was part of the deal. It had everything we needed, a little walk from reception, but that was good - gave us more time to walk in the snow. Not far away are the shops to the right & a great hill for tobogganing to...

We booked a 2 night stay here through Espirit as part of a Santa's Lapland package. A fantastic trip with excellent activities included. Our kids aged 8 and 5 loved it with meeting Santa being the highlight. The hotel was midrange and clean yet suited our needs. The half board food was good and the decor could probably do with...

We just got back from staying at the snowflake hotel, in Saariselka and it was absolutely the best holiday we've had. We travelled as a four, wife and two children; 8 and 5, for five days. The main function was of course to see the big man in red, and there is so much more to add! I've split the... More
