The hotel is located in the hills outside the city senter, witch is perfect in vintertime if you are skiing, but in summer season the distance to city senter is a bit far. Staff where helpful, and food in restaurant, both dinner and breakfast was fine,.. or actually more than fine. :)

Easy going place. Own sauna was bonus. I also liked the personnel which was lay back type. Scenery was also quite nice. I would visit again with family, suitable for kids. Price wise room was good value for the money.

I had the pleasure of 10 nights in Rovaniemi recently and chose the Sky Hotel. I'm so glad I did. I upgraded to a sauna room and it was the best choice I made. The staff (especially Riikka, I'm sorry if I spelt your name wrong!) were wonderful and so polite and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them.... More

Pretty old style "campus" type of rooms, but of course with Sauna! Location on the top of Ounasvaara is excellent, especially in winter for downhill skiing - top station of lift just next to hotel. Restaurant & food very good, breakfast also positive surprise. Some cabins also for a rent.

I stayed in this hotel in December for 2 nights during our visit to Lapland. The hotel is located up the hill from the town, I think you can walk down to the town if you wanted to but we didn't.

Located out of town, on a small hill, overlooking surroundings. The hotel has a roof terrace where you enjoy the views. Lots of snow on the trees- beautiful! The view from the restaurant window is great too. Rooms are quite simple, but all the essentials in place. 2 saunas- men/women, quite small. The reality is that both saunas end up... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during a Scandinavian break. Hotel is situated a few km from Rovianemi on a hill overlooking the town surrounded by pine trees, which during our visit were covered in snow making for a perfect wintery view, especially sat by the large log-burner in reception!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel is situated right next to the Ounasvaara Winter Sports Centre on the top of the Ounasvaara Fell. Hotel offers a fine dining dinner restaurant and roof terrace with views over Rovaniemi city and the Kemijoki River valley. Hotel offers accommodation in hotel building and in wooden cottages next to the hotel. Most of the rooms has own private sauna and great views to the peaceful forest of unique Ounasvaara Fell. Saunas are very comfortable especially in winter time to warm up after a busy day. There are "sauna spa" products available at the hotel souvenir shop. The Chaine des Rôtisseurs- and Pro Gala-awarded Restaurant Sky Ounasvaara offers an à la carte menu featuring fine and pure Lappish delicacies. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide panoramic views of the surrounding nature. A souvenir shop and a café-bar with cosy fireplace are found in the lobby. Guests can relax on the roof terrace and enjoy the Midnight Sun during summer or if lucky enough, the Northern Lights during mid-Agust until the end of March. The hotel offers direct access to ski slopes, cross country skiing tracks and pretty walking trails. You can feel the true spirit of Lapland while wandering in the forest on the top of Ounasvaara Fell in a peaceful silence, relax and enjoy the fresh air and pure nature and pick a a fresh blueberry and taste the wilderness. Rovaniemi city centre is 3 km away. Rovaniemi Airport is a 15-minute drive away. A warm welcome for a visit! ... more   less
