I love, love, love this hotel. It's gorgeous with a gorgeous view of the snow covered forests - it feels very private. We loved the sauna and the outdoor hot tub. The furniture was comfortable and we slept great. The food is good and we loved the location next to Santa Claus Village.

Chose this hotel simply because it is pretty new, great location - just beside the Santa Claus village and indoor Sauna plus outdoor Jacuzzi. The experience of heating up your body and then brace the zero degrees outside and hop into the hot jucuzzi was just amazing. Unforgetable feelings. We ran out of towels and communicated with front desk via a inhouse tablet and within minutes, the towels were sent over. Fantastic service. The glass rooftop makes it easy for you to enjoy the Northern Lights.. but for us, we had snowing weather throughout our stay. Recommend.

Snowman World/Glass Castle resort is an amazing place to stay! Located in the heart of Santa Claus’s village but still tucked away a bit so there is some separation from the tourist action. Each cabin/ condo comes with sleds outside your door and a hot tub in the back. Some are located on the edge of the forest so and you can see the reindeer walking thru the forest. We loved it and would stay again!

This was how our family holiday started. My wish outdoor jacuzzi in the snow... I got what I asked for. Fantastic accommodation, comfortable bed, amazing bathroom, shower and sauna. And the staff.... I have never been in a hotel where the staff have been so accommodating an pleasant. Most must be seasonal workers but they have chosen them well. The daily breakfasts that they offer. Was a great way to start each day. It was only disappointing i couldn't stay longer. I loved being here, I could imagine the how this place would be around Christmas time. The atmosphere would have been so good. Loved just looking out the window at night watching the Christmas lights. If you have the time and money to visit Rovaniemi, stay here. it is luxury.

It was a very unforgettable experience staying in there with the five star sauna and outdoor jacuzzi, hot water bath under the trees and surrounded by snow. It was a nice unit. And staff at reception Mr. Ville was very helpful in sending our luggage to the unit as well as kind briefing of the usage of the facilities inside the unit. Time flies when you were staying inside, would have the motivation of lengthening stay if we were allow to stay longer in Finland.
