I stayed at the Hotel Riekonlinna on 1st January for 4 nights with my mother. The location is at the far end of the village (or near-end, depending which way you look it at) but is well placed for access to the shops and tour companies and is the closest hotel for the toboggan run. About 20mins walk from the Supermarket which is fine, but could feel a long way if its -30! Lapland Safaris is on site which is quite use, along with small gift shop, bar and restaurant.
I had read many comments about this being a business hotel. Having travelled significantly for business I have to say I did not feel this at all, it felt very much like a tourist hotel to me. The reception staffs were friendly and very helpful to us as Finnair lost our luggage. They contacted the airline directly for us and gave is regular updates until finally we were reunited with our bags on day two.
The breakfast was included in our rate and we found we were able to eat a decent portion to last us through to mid afternoon, there were hot and cold cereals, waffles, sausages, eggs and bacon as well as cold meats and cheese – all buffet style.
We liked our small room with a sauna which we utilised daily after all the winter activities but I have to say one area of disappointment was the cleaning. Housekeeping didn’t make our beds up and it just seemed that they came in, swept the floor and changed the towels. We should have mentioned this to reception prior to checking out on the last day but didn’t. Other than that we had a nice time at the hotel and I would stay here again, I thought it was good value for money.
