Rooms are small - a standard Ibis room is much larger. The bathroom is also squeezed. Good enough for a single person. No cleaning of the rooms - I stayed 5 nights there and had to empty the trash bin by myself. The cleaning ladies were very unfriendly - those were the only people I've met in Finland who didn't smile in reply. Breakfast was good. Heating of the room was ok. The ventilation of the kitchen is not good, therefore in the evening one could smell the main dish in corridors and rooms. The sauna operated according to schedule.

Cheap as chips compared to alternatives so can't complain too much, but this is a no frills, does the job abode. With that said, if you need somewhere to hunker down for a few nights then by all means, go for it.

A couple nights is more then enough.

We didn't know what to expect as it was a reasonable price for rovaniemi. Pleasantly surprised as couldn't fault it. Breakfast included was buffet style and only a 10 min stroll into city centre. Approximately €30 in taxi from airport although you could get bus in city centre. 10 min walk to catch direct bus for santa village.

The rooms were warm and some days cleaned. The staff were over worked some times helpful and cheerful and other times snappy and didn’t care to help. The food was terrible, we had Christmas Dinner here and we know we are in Finland but what is it with Chorizo sausage stew with plum sauce. To be fair there was also cold slice ham and turkey which we also had for breakfast everyday.
Still not sure what the shower situation was as the water flooded the en-suite floor. On the first day the toilet roll holder fell off the wall, we reported it straight away, our room was serviced 4 days and it was still on the floor 7 days later.
The hotel is close to town, a real nice pizza shop and supermarket, my advice to travelers is beware, if staying more than a couple days, perhaps go 4 Star.
My advice to the hotel is please update your towels

Perfect place for a budget stay. Food was excellent with both breakfast and dinner buffets having a vast choice of well cooked local food. Room was warm and basic with a comfortable bed I couldn't ask for more as I had no intention of spending all day in it. Tv worked and there was a fridge all we needed.
Staff could not do enough for us all though they were extremely busy and when a taxi did not turn up to take us to the airport on our way home the manager/owner dropped everything and took us himself you cannot beat that

Cheap hotel near Centrum. Stuff is not that nicely behaving and some parts of the hotel are having serious moisture issues causing mold which you can smell. I can't recommend it if You have any breathing health problems.

Anyway, because it is cheap you get approx what you should

Terrible experience. Expensive hotel that is not at all worth the money paid. We went to Rovaniemi for few days and the holidays were destroyed by an awful dinner at the hotel. When the experience was reported to the staff they didn't care about what happened and started to share a number of excuses. I don't recommend this hotel

Great centrally located hotel. We stayed for 2 nights in this reasonably priced for Rovaniemi with clean fresh rooms. The included breakfast was perfect and the staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

Hotel is very close to city center and restaurants. Warm and cozy. Clean and decent.
Rooms are a bit small. Restaurant is nice, but very little food options. In some rooms heaters were not working. So needs to improve.
Would recommend to anyone.

Walk 10 minutes towards the town centre. Turn left at McDonalds and across the road you will see the bus stop to the Santa Claus Village - there's a picture of Santa on the bus stop.
