The location is great as it is situated in the city centre which is convenient. The lobby was very cosy (though always crowded). The staff are very nice, helpful and efficient. Rooms are on the smaller side but has a comfy bed, TV and is comfortable in general. But the bathroom is the smallest I have ever been in. The...

The hotel is very well located in the city centre. It is also a Motorcycle friendly hotel with a free covered parking outside (not closed but safe) and even a small washing station for motorcycles. We got a cosy very clean and comfortable room with very good wifi. The staff was very professional and friendly and give us a fantastic...

I was quite disappointed with this hotel. I booked this hotel because it had a good write up, reviews weren't bad and it was in a very good location. On arrival we were checked in quickly and the receptionist seemed lovely came across as friendly and smily. The room was tiny. No where to keep our suitcases, meaning they were...

Nice clean room and bathroom, good beds. Good restaurant in the building where also the breakfast is served. The dinner was very tasty and the breakfast was also very good. Free parking outside the hotel.

It does not look like it from the outside but this is probably in the one of the better hotels I have stayed in. The location is good but where this hotel shines is the restaurant and breakfast I did eat there twice and on both evenings the food was excellent. Breakfast was really good, fresh and the berry's were...

Excellent placing, very central, 2 minutes from the centre (if we can say Rovaniemi has a centre :P) and from the river, with wonderful view of the bridge at sunrise and sunset. 15 minutes by foot from the museum, if it matters. Excellent staff, very kind and friendly (lovely receptionist, had to say it). Good rooms, clean and nice for...

Nice centrally located hotel, friendly staff. They have bikes, but only two, one was out of order... Generally recommended for a short stay! Good quality restaurant! Free parking next door! One minute walk to the restaurants and bars! 5 minutes walk to the river!

The room was not overly big but adequate and the restaurant was offering Tex Mex food as well as more traditional dishes. There was free parking and they had allocated space to out group. The staff were very efficient and friendly.

This hotel is in a good central location and has free parking. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Our room was very small though and didn't have air conditioning - it got uncomfortably hot. The styling will not be to everyone's tastes. We felt they were trying too hard to be stylish, but it didn't affect our...
