Stayed here in Jan 2016 looking for a last minute skiing break. At the time there was not much snow in the normal places in Europe someone mentioned Finland to us so we thought we would give it a go. What a very good decision it turned out to be. The flight was simple from the UK, the transfer was... More

Poor price/quality ratio. The standard room was roughly the size of a room in a japanese business hotel and the bathroom was quite cramped and outdated. Shower was a quasi-disaster.. Staff was ok. Breakfast was also ok. A friend of mine stayed in a superior room and it might just be worth the upgrade.. it was big and had a... More

We stayed here before we took a taxi to the start of the Karhurkierros trail and hiked back to Ruka, to stay another night at this hotel (02/03 and 08/3). Very friendly staff, nice and clean rooms. Not really modern but with enough comfort. Normal Scandinavian prices. But with a very nice and abundant breakfast buffet. Restaurant is also good!... More

This is the worst stay we had all over Finland. We had a pleasant stay at the same hotel chain in Helsinki but we cannot rate this hotel like that even if they are the same Rantasipi company. We got the apartment and the receptionist said it is a 5 minute walk from the main hotel. She asked if we... More

Upon arrival, the main reception is very welcoming and typical of ski resort accommodation. Beyond this, it is like a complete different hotel. After finding our room which was quite a trek from reception especially with suitcases weaving in and out of cages and trolleys full of towels/bedding which were abandoned in every other corridor, we were nothing but disappointed...

Is this the best skiing hotel in Finland? Rooms are ok, a bit old fashioned, one day they did not even bother to clean our room. Breakfast is terrible, fully booked (we had our breakfast in the lobby) and dirty. Scrambeled eggs are not even close to eggs, one coffee maschine to four hundred quests.
