8.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed only one night in this beautiful hotel. The room we had was stylish and different. The hotel bar and lounge area is extremely well done and the staff were friendly and helpful. We did not get to try the restaurant but it looked very good and would definitely have tried it but we wanted to eat out in Rovaniemi. There is a Lap restaurant next door called Nile which was utterly fantastic and I would very much recommend that as an alternative to the hotel restaurant. The hotel has a Tesla destination charger which was a very handy addition for us.
Cons: There is nothing here that I could really complain about. It is a very good hotel in a perfect location and I would be very happy to stay there again if visiting Rovaniemi again.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Clean, comfortable and convenient to a lot of places. central location
5.8 Okay
Pros: Good location in the center of the town
Cons: Breakfast was included but you have to pay extra 5 ! Euro for sunny side eggs? Room was called suite (for me 2 separate rooms) but was actually only a junior suite ( one bigger room) but totally overpriced with 900.- Euro !!!! per night
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great and cozy interior. Beautiful rooms. Nice breakfast. Free parking. Very friendly personal, especially thanks for Ekaterina, she was nice and helpful.
Cons: I have a very sensitive sleep. When I was making my reservation, I put a special request to have a quit room, but it was very very noisy during the night, because our room was located near to the main road, even the ear plugs didn’t help, I could not sleep for 3 nights :( The windows didn’t reduce the noise and moreover we heard the neighbors very well all night. The hotel claims to be a soundproof, but it’s completely not try. Also , there was only one small cabinet for clothes, what was completely not enough to locate even the small part of our clothes. I will highly recommend this hotel, but not for a good sleep.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: LOVED THIS HOTEL. Amazing breakfast buffet! best I've had. Great rooms. The beds were the most comfortable we had on our 3 weeks in Europe. Pillows and bed really comfy. Staff were very helpful and nice. atmosphere was cosy and it had gym and sauna. Santa express bus was just across the road from the hotel and most tour companies a short walk into town. Would recommend you stay here.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel, Staff, and Food were excellent. Location is great. Not far from the river or the city centre. All walking distance. The bus stop to Santa Claus Village is right behind the hotel!

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The jacuzzi and the sauna was truly relaxing. Dinner provided was delicious. However would have loved more options. The location was excellent.
Cons: The spiral stair case leading up to rooms. The bathroom/toilet was on a separate level making it inconvenient during the night to visit the bathroom. Wasn’t able to see Northern Lights.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff are extremely responsive and friendly. The apartment, setting and facilities are beautiful. Location is in a quiet wooded area in Santa Claus Village. Very nice.
Cons: Obtaining a comfortable room temperature was problematic throughout our stay. The guest does not directly control the room temperature. Room temperature can only be adjusted by the staff who must physically come to the unit. The means of communicating with the staff is through a tablet using either a really poor text writing app or a phone connection that never worked properly. The management needs to take a look at their heating and tablet technology. Room temperature and the inconvenient tablet detracted from an otherwise very nice stay.

There were convenience stores/bar/fast food around so you are in good location, really. Staff were really accommodating from the beginning when I had a problem with my card payment. They reassured me right away until we checked-in then checked-out, nothing can be complained of. The breakfast buffet has a generous spread that we got to try and enjoyed. Overall, I enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend to my friends!
Cons: Nothing, it's perfect for us.

Breakfast buffet is good with enough variety. Limited dinner options but overall not bad. Enough things to do for a few days within the village but if you don’t have young kids, 2 days is plenty. Staff is very accommodating and helpful with booking activities.
Cons: Only a small complaint but the lunch buffet at the restaurant hall was subpar and they don’t replenish the food so if you get there towards the end you won’t have much to choose from.

Pros: The hostess was the homey, cheerful, and independent house manager. The large variety of Continental breakfast was excellent and every selection looked deliberately stylish. The Finnish pancake she provided with us are all delicious. Every corner of the room was clean and dustless. Also it was nice to offer us two rides. The Lapland reindeer dog was a cute girl. She reminded us of our grandmother. I felt like I was homestaying with her family.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and comfort apartment
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Design of hotel and rooms in particular is amazing. Also, food at hotel restaurant is probably the best that we had during our stay in this area. It’s less than 5min drive from Santa’s Village.
Cons: No flexibility for early check in or late check out. I understand that during the high season hotel is fully booked, but gap between 11:00-16:00 is just too big. Also, room temperature cannot be regulated within the room, instead you have to contact front desk every time you feel cold/warm. It’s simply inconvenient. Lobby might be bigger, there is literally 6 sitting places. There is no common area for relaxation such as sauna, spa etc. Overall, great experience due to the very design of the hotel, but for the money you are paying you just expect a bit more.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Location because of the wooded area.
Cons: Housekeeping service is lacking the standards of similar category. Bathroom size is much smaller than most 5star hotels I have stayed in. Too much waiting before any service arrives.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The cozy nests and views
Cons: Difficult to communicate with guest services as response is not as quick as you would expect from a pricy hotel
3.0 Mediocre
Cons: The village overlooks a parking lot and is absolutely not as it appears in the photos in the middle of the nature.. the room are very small for the price paid. The new year's Eve dinner was a mockery They split a banal appetizer over 4 courses. No children's menu and we got up hungry to spend the amount of 100 euros each.. :((

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The Front desk reception were very helpful
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing chalets with excellent service and location. We loved it!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Gorgeous chalets, and amazing choice at breakfast including a make your own waffle station! We didn’t eat dinner there but the menus for the al a carte looked amazing. It was less than a ten minute taxi ride into town and for 6 of us in a mini van this cost €20-25 each time. The ski resort was a two minute walk from the door of our chalet and although it was a very small resort it was great for our friends who were complete beginners. Would highly recommend and will hopefully be visiting again as soon as we can.
Cons: The chalets were split in two so you didn’t have a whole one to yourself. While this wasn’t too much of an issue it did make the chalet slightly cramped and extremely hot- especially at night (although we probably didn’t work out the thermostat very well). There was no oven but we made use of the hob and made chilli and a pasta dish on the nights we weren’t eating out.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Cosy and warm chalets (tested during -25 outside). Super comfy beds. Sauna was easy to use and it was a pleasure to relax in it after intensive outdoor activities throughout the day. Ski resort is only few steps away. Good breakfast and nice breakfast area. Would definitely come back again!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was fine but same everyday. Great view of lake. Convenience to ski activities.
Cons: Limited to types of eggs cooked. Omelette or fried eggs were not catered for from our experience. Carrying large suitcases to your unit in the snow from reception.
6.7 Good
Pros: Right next ski field, great for those who wish to ski. Chalet is near river and the view was really nice. Sauna in room and so very convenient.
Cons: Breakfast was provided but had very limited choice. Chalet was quite small and didn’t have much family space. Kitchen was also small.

Cons: Room smelled very strongly of aftershave,a smell that couldn't get rid off as there were no windows to outside. If I had travelled for leisure I would have very disappointed to have a room overlooking inside of the hotel. Overpriced, as all the accommodation much in Rovaniemi seemed to be

Cons: The hotel's luggage storage room is tiny!

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very good and pleasant environment, nice rooms and terrace. Good breakfast.
Cons: Cleaning ladies could do their job better, however it was still ok.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Waking up to beautiful forest view from room, being able to catch aurora (only if you are lucky) in the dark forested area. Enjoying private sauna in your own room. Christmas dinner buffet, although it was the only dining option, was delicious with great service. They do menu rotation so it’s varied even if you dine for consecutive nights.
Cons: Hotel management should have set up arrangements with Ounasvaara ski resort to facilitate guests who plan to ski. Many guests had to call for taxi in order to get to the base of slope, but in fact the easiest route was simply via the slope! Front desk was apathetic, they simply suggested either walking down the slopes (which is unsafe) or wait for the chair lift to work (which operates ONLY if there is enough skiers). It’s a shame that such a nice hotel failed to look into ‘total experience’ for their guests.
8.8 Excellent

We did not get to try the restaurant but it looked very good and would definitely have tried it but we wanted to eat out in Rovaniemi. There is a Lap restaurant next door called Nile which was utterly fantastic and I would very much recommend that as an alternative to the hotel restaurant. The hotel has a Tesla destination charger which was a very handy addition for us.

Pros: Great and cozy interior. Beautiful rooms. Nice breakfast. Free parking. Very friendly personal, especially thanks for Ekaterina, she was nice and helpful.
Cons: I have a very sensitive sleep. When I was making my reservation, I put a special request to have a quit room, but it was very very noisy during the night, because our room was located near to the main road, even the ear plugs didn’t help, I could not sleep for 3 nights :( The windows didn’t reduce the noise and moreover we heard the neighbors very well all night. The hotel claims to be a soundproof, but it’s completely not try. Also , there was only one small cabinet for clothes, what was completely not enough to locate even the small part of our clothes. I will highly recommend this hotel, but not for a good sleep.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: LOVED THIS HOTEL. Amazing breakfast buffet! best I've had. Great rooms. The beds were the most comfortable we had on our 3 weeks in Europe. Pillows and bed really comfy. Staff were very helpful and nice. atmosphere was cosy and it had gym and sauna. Santa express bus was just across the road from the hotel and most tour companies a short walk into town. Would recommend you stay here.

Pros: Hotel, Staff, and Food were excellent. Location is great. Not far from the river or the city centre. All walking distance. The bus stop to Santa Claus Village is right behind the hotel!
Cons: The only thing that spoilt our stay here was the noisy guests in the room above us. They just did not go to bed at night!!!

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Room was extremely nice and comfortable for 2 people. The shuttle to and from the airport is very convenient and they go out of their way to take your bags to and from your room for you. Breakfast buffet is good with enough variety. Limited dinner options but overall not bad. Enough things to do for a few days within the village but if you don’t have young kids, 2 days is plenty. Staff is very accommodating and helpful with booking activities.
Cons: Only a small complaint but the lunch buffet at the restaurant hall was subpar and they don’t replenish the food so if you get there towards the end you won’t have much to choose from.

Pros: Nice old style log cabins for up to six people (in one room albeit) with fireplace, kitchenette and personal sauna! Parking in front of the cabin and decent breakfast at the main building. Nice for an extended stay. Many activities in both summer and winter.
Cons: No tea/coffee in the cabins. Adjacent spa should really not be titled as such, as it is only a tiny public swimming pool.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great for famillies.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The facilities overall are excellent. You have everything you need, including a sauna in your room, yey! You also have a nice dryer in the room which turned super handy! You also have a very nice spa area and a gym and a myriad of options we couldn't do because of time, pity but we will come again!
Cons: The only but I have is that there are quite a few door frames on the floors with which we were bumping into all the time. They are signposted but it is not enough. We saw more people struggling.
7.0 Good
Pros: I liked a lot the location between trees and forest. The breakfast was big and the room was really nice. I liked that it was a very big and friendly place, great for kids!!
Cons: I had to take taxi to get there, and that was expensive. But there where some safaris that picked us up from the hotel. It was snowing so I found difficult to see where was the walking path, there should be more clear signs.
2.8 Mediocre
Pros: I like that we stayed at the Olympic Training Center
Cons: Receptionists weren't very friendly (some even rude). Rooms look like college dorm rooms (and smell like them too) Showers are grungy, smelly, dirty and made me wish I didn't have to shower just to avoid touching anything. (Showers in Uganda are cleaner than this!)
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Large clean room, more of an apartment really. Very spacious, well equipped. Enjoyed using the adjacent sports centre.
Cons: Breakfast buffet is adequate, but more like a canteen than a cafeteria. 1.5km walk to the town centre.
4.2 Okay
Pros: This hotel was an amazing experience, it took me back to my youth when we went on school trips during holidays. Since then I travelled all over the world from super cheap one dollar a night in India to very Luxuary 800 dollar a night leading hotel of the world .But I never slept in a 220 dollar a night youth hostel. In Helsinki I stayed in the super nice Radisson plaza hotel which was cheaper! Needless to say that I do not recommend this hostel
Cons: I will spare you a rather long list
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Delicious breakfast and lovely staff. Big room with everything you need in it.
Cons: We couldn’t make us of the kidsplay area after 4pm.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was a great size for us two adults and two teens. The beds were comfortable while we had to ask for some extra pillows everything was very comfortable. There is a wet close dryer where you can hang snow pants and stuff to dry over night- really this hotel was laid back and fun and it was perfect for the type of stay we were doing.
Cons: The buffet food here was terrible. The grill in the hotel closes when the buffet is out so we ended up walking to a pizza/grill place attached to the supermarket. There are walking paths along side the road that go under an over pass and were a hill so my teens sled down the side walk to the store. But the food was so bad it was cheap but McDonald's would have been better. One night there was a special buffet and we didn't realize- there isn't any organization tons of people with tour groups going in and out and grabbing food no one manning the door to host or the cash register. We looked like fish out of water since we didn't pre-pay dinners with any type of tour group, we had to hunt down someone to pay and when we did the food was about 28 euro a person not 11 euro. It was our first night and we were a bit bitter about that. We got the 11 euro buffet the next night then for the rest of our stay we ate out at other restaurants. I can't emphasize how bad the food was, thing usa school cafeteria food circa 1980's.

Pros: Beautiful family room and close proximity to town centre and santapark

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The jacuzzi and the sauna was truly relaxing. Dinner provided was delicious. However would have loved more options. The location was excellent.
Cons: The spiral stair case leading up to rooms. The bathroom/toilet was on a separate level making it inconvenient during the night to visit the bathroom. Wasn’t able to see Northern Lights.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff are extremely responsive and friendly. The apartment, setting and facilities are beautiful. Location is in a quiet wooded area in Santa Claus Village. Very nice.
Cons: Obtaining a comfortable room temperature was problematic throughout our stay. The guest does not directly control the room temperature. Room temperature can only be adjusted by the staff who must physically come to the unit. The means of communicating with the staff is through a tablet using either a really poor text writing app or a phone connection that never worked properly. The management needs to take a look at their heating and tablet technology. Room temperature and the inconvenient tablet detracted from an otherwise very nice stay.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beds were comfortable, the ambiance was just right, plenty of room for 4 people. Nice hot tub and sauna for each igloo
Cons: One of the front desk women wasn’t too friendly and we didn’t see the northern lights from the room due to weather

Pros: The location is perfect to walk around the town and visit main sightseeings of Rovaniemi. The staff was very helpful and explained main things during our stay. We were especially happy to see Rituals shower toiletries. Even though our room wasn’t big it was very nice, warm and cozy. Big bath and bathrobe made our stay even better after long cold walks.
Cons: Sometimes you can hear check-in and check-out noise. The restaurant downstairs was very disappointing with poor client service and totally burnt potato side for your dish.

Very poor advice.. Overall one lousy experience and very poor staff.

Pros: Hotel is basic and a little dated but clean and tidy. Well located with a main bus stop right outside the back entrance. Easy to get around the town on foot as well. Breakfast was good although they do start removing items before the official closing time, so don't show up with 5 minuets to spare as you'll go hungry.

3.0 Mediocre
Pros: The breakfest was fair.
Cons: I originaly booked for 7 night but cancel the reservation in the first day and finly stayed in the hotel only one night. This is a very old hotel with a very old look from the inside. The rooms I got were small and transmit tiredness and absolotly not a place I wish to stay. The price was not competitive in compare to other hotel in the same town. I must say that other people stayed in the hotel were not so sensitive to the look of the hotel and said it is satisfied them. One of the reasons I choosed this hotel is the swimming pool that was not useful for me and my children because the low temperature of the water.
