First impressions very good - hotel staff were very friendly and efficient and we checked in really quickly. The rooms are basic yet comfortable, and the Arctic lights display on the wall really added a nice touch to the rooms. Beds were very comfy, and the rooms were kept lovely and warm despite the cold outside! They are well equipped...

Hotel was just opposite Lapland Safari, great for those who prefer a short walk to their hotel after an exhausting winter activity such as snow mobile safari or a late evening Aurora viewing. It also has strong wifi. SinI, front desk receptionist was particularly helpful and made our last evening at Rovaniemi a comfortable one.
