“First time in Levi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Booked the holday thru Inghams and stayed here in the 63 sq m apartment that has 3 bedrooms and would sleep up to 7. There are only 3 of us so we had a room each. This apartment does not have a fireplace unlike the other ones in the complex but its alright even if its -28C outisde, no need for it really with the heated floor. We landed in the apartment heated up so we didn't need to adjust the thermostat and we just left it as it is for the whole week. The house is complete with washing machine, heated closet, microwave, fridge, oven and cooker, coffee maker, kettle, and toaster. Will definitely stay here again if we ever come back to Levi.

Nearest bus stop for R2 route is Sirkantähti Hotel. This would take you to Lift No. 8 in the South piste (blue run) which is very good for beginners and back to Zero Point (Front piste) and the bus would then follow R1 route taking you to East piste and back to Zero Point again, in which the bus route would follow R2 route again. If you are taking beginner's lesson, lessons take place in the front slopes in kid's land. Zero Point is a good 10 mins walk from the apartments.

There are 2 supermarkets in the town, K supermarket is across the road from the apartments and open up to 9 PM even on Sundays. As we landed Sunday evening (after 8PM), we went straight to the Supermarket to get some few supplies.

As for Après-ski, there is an Irish pub and most hotels have bars as well. There is a club but did not get the chance to go there. Few karaoke place are available as well, as the locals love them.

We did the mini husky safari and aurora snowmobile safari, book thru Inghams when they had a briefing on Monday morning, both are highly recommended. We were not lucky to see the northern lights during the safari as it is still a bit bright, but managed to see the northern lights on our walks to Immeljarvi lake after 10. We even stayed up to midnight one night and witnessed spectacular displays.

I would love to go back to Levi and bring more of my friends next time. I'd probably book it thru Inghams again.

Stayed here for 4th time in February. I have added other reviews here, so not much to add to what I've already put if you want to check out more detail, still great little chalets right in centre of town. Once again thanks to Maria k who is always very helpful and pleasant. Be back next year no doubt.

Room Tip: The top chalets are more in a lit area, bottom ones darker if you are always checking on Aurora like...

We went with another couple to these apartments and opted for the split level three bedroom option. This gave us all plenty of room and left the sitting/ dining area free at all times. There were only twin (3ft) beds in each room so no double available. This was a disappointment to us as we prefer a double. The accommodation was clean, simply furnished and well equipped. Fridge/freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, iron, sauna and vacuum cleaner. The location is very central with the supermarket about 2 minutes walk away and the slopes a five minute walk. Skidoo and thermal suit hire are just across the road. They offered all that we could want in this resort. Reception were very helpful and the free WiFi useful for keeping in touch with home. The WiFi was occasionally intermittent but reception were more than willing to reboot the routers if asked.

Found this by luck as we where late in booking. Was very pleased with what we got. Nice little place. Perfect for two. Close to lots of great hiking spots. Lots of good stores near - and a good kitchen means you'll not starve...good thing as there where hardly any restaurants open...

We stayed in a smaller cosy cabin which includes all necessities, fully equipped kitchen and sauna. We even had a washing machine which was very practical. the location is near a main road but we didn't hear anything. there is little traffic to start with. Free wifi in cabin although reception could be a bit better. all in all very good value for the 50 euro we paid in the summer. we can recommend it.

Stayed at the Levilehto Apartments first week of Easter break and had a fab time. Second trip to Levi (first on santa break) and this time came for the skiing with the family (wife, grandma 2 kids age 7 11).
APARTMENT.....had a 3 bedroom for 5 and there was plenty of room. Open plan living, dining and kitchen with all the necessary equipment (dishwasher, drying cupboard) etc. The apartments were well maintained and clean.
Skiing.....as others have said is mainly aimed at beginners and intermediates. If you skii regularly and are looking for lots of black runs then you may be disappointed. (there are 3) But there are plenyty of blue and red runs great for the kids who had only just learnt to ski. No queues at lifts (apart from good friday onwards) and lost count of times on piste with no one else in sight. We skiied every day sometimes 2x and still didn't cover all runs.
Levi... great little town/village with pleny of bars and restaurants. Cant really comment in these as were on half board option at Levtenturi spa hotel or ate in. FINLAND IS EXPENSIVE THOUGH drinks and snacks double price of England.
TIPS....
1 we went on half board option to Levitenturi spa so had best of both worlds. Had self catering room and cooking facilities if needed (last time in hotel room with 4=cramped) but could still eat out in am / pm if tired after day on slopes.
2 take a picnic (sausages, marshmellows etc ) to roast over open fire in one of the many KOTA's dotted around the pistes. The kids loved it).
3 a visit to the spa/swim world although expensive 54 Euros for family of 4 is weel worth it . We visited on last day as had to be out of room by 11am and spent 4 hours in there. Hot tubs cold tubs aerobics pools etc.
4 you can hire lockers at zero point for skii boots. Invaluable as you dont have to trek back with ski boots on and kids moaning. 25 euros for week.
5 book trips through tourist info. We went to husky park and ice fishing all slightly cheaper than with tour company.

Had a great time and defo recommend. Will be back soon.

stayed at levilehto for a week at the begining of March, we booked a 3 room apt so we could have a bedroom eacha nd still have the living room. The are supposed to sleep up to 6 but it would be very cramped at full occupancy. As it was we were very comfortable. Comfy beds, could have more clothes storage space as only 1 tiny wardrobe with 1 shelf in our room. Lovely sauna and heated up quickly, great to have the hallway for putting all your ski things and getting in and out without losing all the heat. Plenty of cooking facilities ( take your own as the one that was there was lethal!) Tv had some english speaking channels - a bit random as to what you got though and some very old programs ( flying doctors!).
Nice and easy to get to the supermarket and not bad but enough of a walk to the ski slope ( especially with a child). Inghams said it was 400m but we gps'd it at 600.
Lots to like about the place and we are thinking about going back next year.
