We stayed here for a night as a family on our trip to Rovaniemi. You get transportation on share basis as well as taxis to your hotel in Rovaniemi just outside the airport. We arrived at the hotel at around 1 pm and the check in was really smooth. They allotted us rooms with a good view. The terrace is... More

The folks at the reception and the staff is friendly. While not having made a reservation upfront, I was able to get a room on shorty notice. The rooms are standard, functional and clean. That was not the problem. I was not tooo happy about the noise level from the hallways. Acoustics are horrible and every voice in the hallway... More

The hotel is located a bit out of Rovaniemi, which actually is a huge plus. It is also on a hill, so that makes things even better. When we got to climb to the roof and see the northern lights we could also see that people staying in Rovaniemi can only dream of it, as everywhere else was cloudy. They... More

We stayed before the use of TripAdvisor so this is slightly out of context but wanted to now add our experience.

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.

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.

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
