We visited this hotel on may during the NUTS karhunkierros running event. We took an room with 2 beds and sofa for three adults. Room was spacious and clean. Probably the whole place was refurbished in past few years. Staff was most polite and helpful and food in restaurant was awesome, though bit pricy. Hotel is located to center of...

Stayed in the hotel 1 night when driving from Lapland to south of Finland. Instead of staying in a traditional room, we stayed in the apartment. It is quite a distance from the main reception, so if you plan to stay in the apartment, make sure you have light luggage to carry, or you have some kind of vehicle to...

This hotel really was one of the best I've been in finland. The service was excellent and rooms were comfy and super clean. We stayed first in upgraded standard room and after hiking the famous Karhunkierros we took an apertment for two nights. Both were amazing and there was a selection of pillows in the room which you could choose...

Frist we had room on third floor on most far away from reception, after lifts many stairs. That room was small and didnt had view :( Our second room was on fift floor with nice view and room was rather big. Brekfast was bit disapointing. Good location and Ruka is beautiful during summer. Very good service!

Located right in the middle of a ski resort. The room was spacious and had a nice view from the balcony. The restaurant was good and the breakfast was very good as well. Free parking was available which was nice.

Quality is way lower than the impression hotels booking portal gave. I'd advice to stay away. Place also has stale smell. Booking system said the room would have twin bed, but the reseptionist told us there is only two rooms with twin beds in the whole hotel.

Poor price/quality ratio. The standard room was roughly the size of a room in a japanese business hotel and the bathroom was quite cramped and outdated. Shower was a quasi-disaster.. Staff was ok. Breakfast was also ok. A friend of mine stayed in a superior room and it might just be worth the upgrade.. it was big and had a...

We stayed here before we took a taxi to the start of the Karhurkierros trail and hiked back to Ruka, to stay another night at this hotel (02/03 and 08/3). Very friendly staff, nice and clean rooms. Not really modern but with enough comfort. Normal Scandinavian prices. But with a very nice and abundant breakfast buffet. Restaurant is also good!...
