We came to Lapland after a short two day stay in Helsinki. Lapland is really something! When we arrived we were welcomed by great snow fall and frisky weather... Arctic experience. We stayed in Hotel Vakuna and it turned out to be good choice. This hotel is located conveniently in downtown with many nice restaurants just nearby and all the...

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...

Receptionists were friendly & obliging to assist. And the room was modern & comfortable. We had a good 2-night stay. Hotel was near to a number of shops & supermarkets. It was also within walking distance to the river, and Lapland Safari Office which took care of our husky sleigh ride. There's also Koti Pizza opposite it for a cheap...

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.

We stayed here one night on a stop to see Santa. The hotel has good service. It costs 7Euro to get here on shared shuttle from airport. The ride was about 15 minutes and the shuttle only made a couple stops. It is a small town, so a shared shuttle is no trouble. The hotel is across the street from...

It was a truly lovely stay. The rooms are very new and thoughtfully designed, with nice details like mood lights aurora borealis style, leather handles on the cabinets, very warm floors, especially in the bathroom. The mirror on the wall made the room look big, even though it was not. Marianne traditional Finnish candy on the pillow was a nice...

So myself, my husband and 4 children visited this hotel on the 4th of December. We travelled with Thomson and it is the best decision we ever made from the airport departure in the U.K. all the way to stepping off the flight when we arrived back in the U.K., it was outstanding! Everything ran like clock work and nothing...

Wonderful location, bus stop to Santa Village outside hotel. Breakfast was wonderful, big variety. Room very basic, limited amenities, cold floor (thought the floors would have been heated. A shock to the body getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and the floor was extremely cold). Would have liked assistance with luggage on arrival...
