I had a single bedroom. It's bigger than I thought - has a twin bed, a desk, and a heater (yes, a heater, very nice). The bathroom is spacious as well. If the bathroom didn't smell, I would rate this hotel 5 rather than 4. Also, it could be quite noisy when someone next to you or above you using...

Very nice twin room with a huge window, closet, big desk and TV. Supermarkets are nearby and the shared kitchen is well equipped, but if you check in late or enjoy late meals you’d better hurry as it will be closed at 21:00. Quiet, safe area near the train station, perfect if you arrive/leave by train, but handy also if...

Positives: It's close to the train station (just 5-10 mins walk) which you can take the overnight train to Helsinki as well as bus to Santa Claus Village. There's also 2 big supermarkets just 5 mins away where you can buy your...

Borealis guesthouse was a good place for us to stay only for a couple of days. The location was great! walking distance to bus, train station and the center of the city. We booked a twin room and it was good enough for us, young couple visiting Rovaniemi for fun. The room was comfortable and we had our own private...

From the hostel is not difficult to reach the city center by walking. Its takes around 20 minutes in a snowing day. Close to the bus and raiwail station. Staff very friendly and clean place. There is no lounge room for a rest or a chat with the other guests. So when you are in the hostel just stay in...

The property is conveniently located very close to the Rovaniemi train station. Its a 10-15 min walk, and pretty easy to locate. The city centre is a good 20-25 min walk though. I had booked a single private room, which was clean and super cosy. The best part about this property is their staff, who are extremely friendly and helpful....
