We stayed here when we visited the Santa claus Holiday village in Rovaniemi. It was a nice cosy little cabin with a sauna, a small kitchenette and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Definitely worth staying at if you want to spend the night after roaming around the village. There are lots of activities in the village... More

Santa Claus Holiday Village in the snow must be a glorious winter wonderland. It was still lovely in May. / I loved our little red cabin, the high ceilings, Finnish decor, and ALL the amenities. The kitchen was convenient and my husband loved our sauna. Our unit was exceptionally clean, with comfortable beds, and great WiFi connection. The reception staff... More

Arrived at the airport and picked up by village's transfer service. Only a few minutes away and great service. Upon arrival taken straight to cottage which is roomy enough and has a great bathroom with built in sauna (small but great addition). Kitchenette is very small but good enough for snacks and a quick cuppa with small fridge for perishables... More

Nice and spacious cottages with a private electric sauna in the bathroom next to the arctic circle and Santa's office (where the REAL Santa can be found, not next to the reception of this holiday village!)

The rooms were large and in duplex building arranged as a village. Climate control was good. They give you a sled to use to transport your luggage to your room. That sets the tone for the village. We were very happy to see the northern lights one of the four nights we were there; the green was truly magnificent. The... More

I stayed at this property over the Easter break 2016 and was able to catch one of the brightest auroras of the year, so I was definitely glad to have stayed here. However, the property and the entire "village" itself seemed like a bit of tourist scam. Perhaps if you are very much into the whole Christmas and Santa Claus... More

Very good place to stay. The hotel provides airport-hotel-airport transfer. I was met in the airport. It takes 5 minutes by car to the hotel. The driver dropped me directly in my cottage and I went to the reception later to do the paper work and get the key.The cottages are semi-private: one porch, 2 rooms. Each has its own... More
