the room is basic, clean and comfortable, most importantly the heater was quite effective and the room was alright even when the outside temp was -16C. the place is about 15 mins walk to rovaniemi centre.
service was good and friendly, the owner recommended a husky/reindeer excursion which was the highlight of the trip. note that the reception is closed from 10 pm - 7 am.
there's a sauna the basement which costs 5 euros.

its located very close to both the bus station and the train station and is a short walk into town. The staff are generally really helpful and can help with questions about travelling around Lapland. Breakfast is great, one of the best we had on our trip, a nice big buffet with good rye bread, ham cheese, coffee etc... you prob won't better value for money in Rovaniemi

We only stayed for one night but this guesthouse is located really close to the train station and only a very short walk from the town. The rooms were clean and despite the temperatures outside, it was nice and warm inside.

The staff were really nice, recommending good places to go to try to see the northern lights and other attractions nearby.

Overall, we'll be staying here again on our next trip to Rovaniemi.

I stayed in Guesthouse Borealis for 2 nights. I arrived by train at night, when the reception was already closed. Luckily the owners are very kind and they arranged that I had a key of both the entrance door and my room key.

The room where I slept was for two persons. Clean, good looking, small - especially for 2 persons, a good bathroom and quiet. There is free wireless internet in the hotel, although you need a password to use it. Ask the owners for it.
The location of the hotel is really perfect for people who are staying only some days. The railway and busstation are very close. This is also perfect if you want to visit Santa Claus: there is a direct bus connection every hour (bus line 8) to Santa Claus village from the railway station. It is 20-25 min walking to the city centre.

The breakfast service is a little bit simple.

I think that the overall score of this guest-house is 'very good' because of the price/value ratio, the good service and the kind owners.

Free internet, excellent breakfast, helpful owners, plus the place is located really near the bus station with a straight bus to the Santa Claus village. Rooms a little small but otherwise this place is perfect!

  • Liked — Great breakfast.
  • Disliked — Can't really think of anything major.
