The Levin Alppitalot means something like "Alpine style lodging in Levi", but of course our Finnish business partners could have told us anything since our knowledge of Finnish has taken years to arrive at three words (thanks, one, two).
The Alppitalot is a quite up-market apartment building where you will share the kitchen, living room, bathrooms, and saunas. Everything is impeccably clean and nicely heated up which is of course essential in the Northern Finnish winter. Our reservation included food and drinks, which means that some nice person comes to the apartment and restocks your fridge with everything you would want for breakfast and pre-/after-dinner snacks.
One word of warning: If you are from continental Europe, you will have no idea what it means to stay this far up North during winter. It is very, very cold, and it is very, very, very dark. Of course you know this in theory and in your head, but to actually be in there is a whole different ballgame.
Our Turkish colleagues fell into depression approximately 15 minutes after arrival, and the Germans and Central/Southern Europeans followed on day 2. Judging by this metric, I must be Turkish as well as I asked myself why on earth I had taken two three-hour flights with Finnair to be in the Winter Wonderland.
As I was not very happy with the location overall, I have to give a lower ranking, but the accomodation is very nice.
