Hotel was really nice, with all year Xmas atmosphere, rooms were modern, well equipped, breakfast was great. Nice and good bar as well as restaurant. Staff was pleasant. And also good location. The only negative exception was a price for printing out boarding pass (2,50 € / pc.).

In the middle of downtown Rovaniemi lies this hotel which is very nice. It is good but nothing special about it. Everything works, not the best way, not the worst way. Breakfast is ok but not the best in the city. So all in all nothing to complain about but also nothing to cheer about.

Stayed one night while visiting Santa Claus Village (which is near Rovaniemi airport, about 8 kms from City Centre). It is a great Hotel in the City Centre of Rovaniemi. Handy to many bars, a variety of restaurants and cafes, supermarkets and souvenier shops. About a 30 minute easy walk to the railway station. Need to take a local bus,... More

Can't say anything bad about this hotel. Great location, it's in the very centre of Rovaniemi. Nice interior, big comfy bed, nice bathroom; breakfast had a huge choice of delicious snacks-cheese, ham, fruits, boiled eggs and much more. Wi-Fi in room was fast and good. Staff was polite and helpful. Would stay there again if I will ever visit Rovaniemi... More

This hotel is located by the square, close to shopping centres and restaurants - and still it is quiet. Very nice equipped rooms, especially the bathrooms. The breakfast is ok. We really enjoyed our stay - and booked a room a week later; nice prices in the summer :)

Apart from the fact that the hotelfacilities where more than ok they have the most honest people working here. On our way to Salla we discovered that we forgot all our money in the hotelroom. To make the story short two hours driving back to find out that the receptionist was waiting with all our creditcards and cash money Thanks... More

Arriving in finland to hotel santa claus creates your first dose of excitement with it being Santa themed (everyone's childhood dream). Situated in the heart of Rovaniemi.. it gives you access to pubs, stores and variety of places to dine and experience finnish food. The staff are helpful and always happy to assist. It would be nice if breakfast was... More

Went there on an organized trip with a friend. We stayed there 6 nights. The food is great and the accommodation is very pleasant The staff was very efficient with anything we needed. As this is a small town, the location was very close to the pubs in the town. Don't expect to see many Finnish people there as the... More
