We booked these apartments through Thomson/crystal ski and while I agreed with previous reviews regarding the standard of the apartments I think a number of things should be taken into consideration if booking with children. The walk to Ruka while not far is up and extremely steep hill which my 4 year old and 6 year old struggled with. This became a real bone of contention every morning morning and evening when walking to the village with two children who struggled and moaned the whole way.
Also on arrival to the apartments the bus could only park at the top of the hill. This meant that we were left to carry 4 suitcases, 2 pieces of hand luggage and 2 boot bags as well as 2 tired children down the hill to our apartments with little or no help except directions from the rep....not ideal!!!! This was the same on the way home except we had to wait at the top of the hill, outside in the cold until the bus arrived.
Having said all the that don't be put off. These apartments are of a high standard but you should really consider if you would be better located in ruka village.
