Santas hotel is located not far away from the town shopping center just 5 minute walk. The hotel is really nice and quiet, not many traffic passing through the main road, so you can sleep tight on a clean walm bed. There are a main building with the reception counter and the hotel room building separated away from a main... More

Stayed here for one night and decided we would upgrade to a superior room and pay a little extra after reading all reviews. We had a room in the Gielas building which looked lovely on the inside and outside. Room had a bath and a sauna. Beds were comfortable. Unfortunately the restaurant/ bar was closed there in summer and you... More

I have just realised I didn't leave a review so thought I had better crack on! I stayed here 18th-21st December 2014 with my 6 year old son. First time taking him abroad on my own and couldn't have asked for a better place to go to! The Geilas building was stunning and I could not fault the rooms. Very... More

Stayed here in December and me and my wife had a great holiday. Our room was lovely and the sauna in the room was great. The room was very modern and we saw the northern lights from our balcony. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Would go back

It was amazing how the nature was covered all around by snow. The hotel itself is a kind of resort because it consists of several buildings. We were expected a modern hotel according to the web site but we have received a room in a side building which was a bit dated but no problem. The breakfast room was a... More

We reserved a superior room in the Gielas building, entirely from a review we read on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed! This building of the hotel complex is right next to the main building. It has a beautiful lobby and the restaurant was as good as we have found almost anywhere. The room was lovely. Clean and comfortable with amazing... More

We stayed in the Gielas wing for 3 nights in December 2014 with our kids aged 6 and 4, booked with Thomson. We spent many months looking at the various options available to go and visit santa in Lapland and we were not disappointed with this trip. From the minute you get on the plane everyone was friendly and made... More

At the beginning of the winter season the hotel was still very quiet, not a lot of guests. The hotel restaurant is of excellent quality, at very reasonable prices. Breakfast buffet is standard, could be better for this price. I had a room in a more remote part of the hotel; very quiet as the bar closed rather early. But... More

I stayed in the Santa hotel at the beginning of Jan 2015 on a works trip. The six person apartment was very spacious, clean, everything working. It was equipt with a full kitchen log fire and most importantly a sauna. Was a good distance from the town and you can ski all the way to the slopes. All together the... More
