We have stayed in many hotels in Rovaniemi and this is one of the better ones. In a great central location ideal for shopping etc. Friendly staff on reception and a very professional service provided throughout our stay.

Good service, affordable clean rooms, but no air-condition. The restaurang in downstairs is one of the best places in Lapland. Located in city-centrum. The best "luxury" budget place in Rovaniemi. Highly recommended.

Really cool and great looking rooms and the breakfast was just awesome. The only minus is there is no aircondition in all of the rooms. Todella siisti ja viihtyisä huoneet uusittu. Aamupala ihan loistava. Ainoo miinus ettei kaikissa huoneissa ole ilmastointia.

The hotel itself doesn't seem so bad at first. The service, staff and food is quite good.The rooms are shockingly poor! Ventilator fans instead of air conditioning? You gotta be jocking! Rooms very small. Stay away from this hotel!

CityHotel is a lovely hotel with great restaurants and good service but the rooms are quite small and though this is not always a problem, the location of things, light switches, power outlets, bathroom sink space, etc make the rooms inefficient. Further, the hotel has no A/C, not a problem if you're traveling in the winter but in the summer,... More

An Old Hotel perhaps but you won't fault with the wonderful friendly service you get from the Hotel staff as soon as you get into the hotel. Rooms are a bit small compared to some Hotels. But comfortable beds. Bathrooms are basic but clean and well maintained. Breakfast are great with varieties of food available to serve and fruits. Overall... More

Railway Station is 15-20 minutes walk. Rooms are super clean and comfortable with modern design. Free WiFI and Sauna at the top floor (Ladies: 1900-2000 hrs and Gents: 2000-2100 hrs) -... More

We were told that the further north you travel in Finland the less attractive the hotel accommodation. City Hotel proved to be comfortable and the first in this country to provide facilities to open up luggage! On the down side the access to the tiny shower was quite limited and water engulfed the whole bathroom floor. The breakfast catered for... More

Nice hotel with excellent quality amenities and friendly staff. The hotel is located just in front of market. Staff is very focused, they explained about each possibility to cover all destinations. All amenities in room were of high quality. Highly recommended for all visitors.
