It is located about 700m from the town centre. The Arktikum (about 1 km away) and the railway station (about 1.5 km away) are within walking distance. The room was clean and tidy, and spacious to house twin beds. Basic facilities were available and breakfast was adequate for a morning walk. Though I stayed for only 1 night, I found...

The room and hotel were clean but furnishings were tired and dated. It was actually kind of depressing, especially after a full day of traveling and you just want to get to your hotel and relax, it wasn't very inviting. The staff was friendly enough, but when we asked the lady at the desk for help to get the TV...

Just returned from a 4 night stay in apartment 5. Kymppi which was rented to us by hotelli aakenus. Great location on a residential street a few mins walk from the hotel. 10 min walk from the centre of town with restaurants and shops. 10min drive to santa clause village and 10min drive to oonasvara ski resort. So very local...

Comfortable hotel, short walking distance to the centre of town, wrap up warm though! Good wifi and buffet breakfast. The staff were helpful. We only stayed for one night, the room was ready upon arrival as we arrived from an overnight train from Helsinki. Good wifi.

Overpriced for the service, food & hotel standards. Cramped room. Constantly wet toilet. Lousy service. Weak Wi-Fi. Definitely not hotel standards! Choose any hotel other than Aakenus please if you don't wanna drag yourself back to your room after a great day out. There was a night when I went to the reception to ask if the WiFi is working?...

I stayed here from 20 -24 December 2016. I stayed in room 213. I never review hotels but I am compelled to do this review. The good: The middle aged lady at reception: Extremely helpful and friendly. The bad: The intermittent wi-if. They advertise the hotel with free wi-if. A word of caution - it hardly ever works! We had...

Am writing this from the lobby of the hotel. Stayed here for two nights with my wife and daughter. The hotel is fairly basic and does kind of have a college dorm like feel to it. However, it was very comfortable-my room had two separate sleeping areas with two separate showers and bathrooms. The beds were quite comfortable and the...

If you want a cheap no frills hotel just a few minutes walk to the centre this is ideal. Friendly staff, ok buffet breakfast but poor wifi. I never tried the sauna but there is one on site. 5 mins to town, 15 mins walk to the railway station.

The hotel is about 10mins walk to the city center (faster in summer when it's not as slippery I guess?) which was considered tolerable even on the coldest day of -22 degree Celsius which we experienced in Rovaniemi. It serves a decent breakfast, and is a short walk away from the Arktikum museum where we even managed to catch the...
