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

This has gone down as the best hotel I have stayed at. Beautiful rustic decor, helpful staff and watching the northern lights from the sauna in my room was just perfect! Perfectly placed to do local activities with Lapland Safaris, the main adventure company in the area :)

Excellent modern hotel. The hotel is very convenient for guests and is located in the center of Rovaniemi. Near shopping centers and bars. I was a period of winter and I enjoyed very much to stay in this hotel. Rooms are excellent and reasonably priced. Varied meals. Reception staff friendly.

Collected a key from the reception for the large underground parking. Good bar, decent breakfast on the 2nd floor. Rooms look recently refurbished. A lot of emphasis on safety of the guests and their vehicles. Close to several bars, restaurants and the main attractions. Icing on the cake: very friendly staff.

Most inner-city hotels in Finland are functional rather than charming, and Hotel Santa Claus is no exception. That being said, the rooms are a decent size, and they have recently been refurbished. The hotel is let down a bit by its breakfast - the buffet is rather limited in choice, and disappointing in quality. Apart from that, the hotel is... More
