Pros: Great location, friendly staff, comfortable room, loved the private sauna Cons: Terrible shower, tiny and the shower door doesn't reach the floor for some ridiculous reason. Whoever designed that messed up. Breakfast decent, not 5* but enough variety for a few days. Join Scandic Friends! The intro to the rewards program starts with a charmingly low self-esteem paragraph about...

In my travels I have often stayed at Scandic hotels and guess they must be the Scandinavian equivalent of those budget hotel chains in the UK. The rooms are basic with no tea/coffee making facilities, no iron/ironing board and none of the usual bathroom accessories. I'm guessing this is to keep costs down as they have a refillable wall mounted...

The staff were wonderful especially one of the receptionist, who was always greeting us with a beautiful smile. Unfortunately i couldnt get her name. And the location was superb! Really in the heart of the city, just a few steps away from the mall with the supermarket. In the cold and snowy weather, that was much much appreciated!

Normally for an old hotel with has centralized location you can't expect it too be too nice. But this hotel has proven to be above average as the rooms are well furnished despite its history. Nothing fancy as you are able to see the age through the deco style but it felt comfortable with everything you need within reach. The...

Rovanamie is a small town despite it being the capital of the northern Lapland. The airport is a mere 15 minutes away by the airport bus. The hotel is the 1st drop off point both from and to the airport. So it's extremely conveniently. Rooms are well furnished and surprising spacious although a little tired looking. There are however signs...

Airport shuttle pick up & drop off is convenient and just outside the hotel. Breakfast spread is good. Although furniture is a tad old and worn. It is situated next to the walking street and opposite a well-stock supermarket.

Service here is really good. I dont find anything complaining about this hotel. Maybe would be nice if had other, smaller pillow to choose. If you want silence room then ask room from atrium side of hotel. Everything was clean and ok. I can recommend this if you need clean and nice basic hotel.

The Scandic Hotel is a great place to stay. It's centrally located - within easy walking distance to museums, a shopping mall, restaurants, quaint shops, and the bus stop for the airport. The breakfast was typical European, but plentifully and delicious. Tours stopped there to pick me up and the hotel service was good. I appreciated that they are eco...
