“Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Santa's Hotel has the feel of a family hotel especially the breakfast hall which has well laid-out seating for groups. The breafkast spread is plentiful with choice of both hot and cold food, juices, hot drinks, breads,biscuits, etc are plentiful. Great location, clean rooms with mini bars and electric kettles. Reception staff is friendly. Although internet & wifi charges are high, there is a business centre to access your emails and airport check-ins. There is also a computer for guests in the lobby.

Stayed here for a short trip to see Santa. Location is great, rooms lovely and cleanliness to a high standard . My only criticism would be the restaraunt the service was slow by some staff , inconsistency with meals although the same meal ordered on two consecutive evenings, breakfast cold and food was not replenished with ann hour of service left.
Dont allow this to put you off just choose to eat else where.

Shuttle bus from airport stops right outside. Stayed for 2 nights, room was very nice and even got pillow mints. The only issue we had there was dirty cups in the cupboard which obviously hadn't been seen by housekeeping, but they were very quick to replace with fresh supplies. Centrally located, wi-fi only in foyer - not in rooms and they also had a computer to use. Ate both nights in the restaurant - reindeer a speciality, great breakfast - so much to choose from! Staff were very friendly and helpful and the lights of the corridor got brighter at night - when walking from the elevators (cool!)

Stayed August 2012

Room is small but cosy. Overall very clean with good location. Nearest shopping mall is just a stone throw away.
Only setback is opening hours of restaurant. Maybe because we arrived on Sunday so one of the restaurant was not opened & the other one is not opened till 4pm. We decided to walk to shopping mall to grab a burger.
Decor of hotel is nice & staffs are helpful.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This place nearly ticks all the boxes. Great location, upbeat atmosphere in the lobby, good service on arrival. Clean rooms and bathroom (except some hairs missed in the bath) and comfortable beds. Fantastic breakfast, with freshly baked breads, and the usual selection of meats, cheeses, cereals etc. You can also cook your own waffles!

We found two problems:

1) No free WiFi - this is at odds with every other hotel we've stayed in whilst in Finland, some of them quite a bit cheaper

2) Noisy - function room on ? the floor below us, playing loud music until gone 11pm. Not so much of a problem for us, but could have been a big issue for those with young families.

Stayed at this hotel with my husband on a works trip. The room was quite small but we didn't spend much time there because of the fabulous things to do in Rovaniemi! Room was clean and comfortable beds. Wifi was not great. Breakfast buffet was pretty good with lots of choice and a waffle maker to make your own! A good location for the shops and snow activities and the most northern macDonalds in the world! ( for when you are fed up with eating reindeer and fish!)
