Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed second time at Scandic Rukahovi, but this time we stayed in the separate apartment rooms, room for six persons. That apartment was quite far away (500 meters uphill) from the reception and it was not nice to walk that distance with all the luggage and skies. Anyway location was close to one slope and still it was easy to walk without luggage to the "village". Apartment itself was really old and little bit untidy. Kitchen table lamp was fixed with tape... I would recommend cleaning company SOL to anyone. There was no double beds at all. Positive was private sauna, heated cabinet to dry cloths and privacy. Price wise it was OK, and all linen was included as well as full kitchen with all accessories. Would be nice to have late check-out, but that wasn't possible at the time when we left, apparently hotel and apartments were fully booked?

Dear Tonis32 thank you for your stay at Scandic apartments and your feedback. Unfortunately we do not provide service to deliver the luggage but our staff should recommed the taxi for the first arrival to apartments. We will go throuhg your feedback on the cleaning with our head of the housekeeping and make sure that the staff serving the apartments would be more precise to inform our maintenance about the technical flaws in the apartments. Also we will do additional inspections on the quality of cleaning. I do hope that we will have an opportunity to serve you again in the future here at Scandic Rukahovi. with best regards Lea Riekki general manager Scandic Rukahovi

We’ve been staying at Rukahovi quite regularly, expecially at the apartments. It’d ”you get what you pay” kind of stay: location next to everything is superb, the apartments/hotel rooms are outdated. Shouldn’t surprise anyone that has seen the pics on their website. Cleaning has some issues (it’s not easy to find personnel). The service at the main hotel is always excellent. (Well, this Christmas everything seemed to be organized international guests in mind and that should’ve been told when booking dinners etc., but in broader scope we’ve been really happy with the service.)

We really appreciate the location, price and in the apartments being able to make own food and floor plan is nice: it has little rooms (not soundproof though, but the area is divided so you van watch TV when kids sleep and there some privacy for remote work). Kids can play out ”in our yard”. It’s also nice to book a stay from a hotel chain on their terms (compared to private persons, when changes may not be that easy to make). Also Scandic Friends program is a nice bonus.

However, if you wonder why people have given mixed reviews, it’s because the apartments differ A LOT. You can have renovated bathroom + old beds and your nextdoor neighbour may have looks-like-mould kind of bathroom and half way fallen door, but new beds. The apartments (even if looking for only for five ones) have different branded appliances. It really bugs me that you don’t know what you get. The differences are so obvious that even the kids can spot them. I hope the Scandic chain would take care for Rukahovi hotel and apartments in a bit more systematic way.

So, if you’re looking for a basic level stay with amazing location, this lottery may be for you.

When you choose Scandic Rukahovi, you will be staying right in the middle of Ruka resort. The have both "standard rooms" (long time ago renovated) and "superior rooms" (fairly fresh). Whilst we were staying only one night arriving in the evening and leaving next morning right after breakfast I had booked two standard rooms, but the receptionist managed to take use of their offer an pay 20 euros extras for superior rooms. The rooms were spacious, fairly fresh, with views to the Ruka fjell and well working. The beds were comfy. Breakfast was sumptuous and served in their old restaurant with plenty of space that was highly appreciated by the guests during pandemic times. There was also complimentary parking available. Good price value and strongly recommended.

Absolutely lovely. Great hotel, great food, loads of facilities for skiers, including secure ski and board storage, and a warming cabinet for your boots and clothes in your room. Staff were so helpful and friendly. I’d definitely go there again. Cracking views from our room too.

Use to be very good and nice hotel 20 years ago, but not recommend anymore. Summer time no air condition and rooms are very hot, +30 celcius, impossible to sleep. Breakfast very poor, very messy, empty bowls and table cleaning very slowly. Just visited before this hotel Lapland hotel chain and breakfast was amazing. No own car park or very small outside, have to pay 15 € extra per day using parking hall. We book President suite for 4 persons, but beds was made and available only for 2. When asking from reception they made two beds for sofa, so not ready when arrived. For much cheaper, almost half price, just next door available very nice new apartments with 3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and sauna. In apartments you can make breakfast yourself or many places to eat just next door (10€). Do not recommend this hotel anymore to anyone!

HI 274samin, thank you for your visit and feedback on your stay. We are very sorry to hear that you did not find your visit a good one. We do understand that during this extremly warm summer one would appreciate air conditioning in the room but unfortunately this has not been installed to our hotel at all and we did struggle with the heat in all of the hotel. We had some table fans available to the rooms but they ofcourse do not do the whole trick. We have gone through your feedback with our housekeeping to make sure that the extra beds would be waiting for our guests upon arrival. And thank you for your comments on breakfast. We will go this through with our breakfast team. I do hope that we would be able to serve you again in the future. I wish a really nice summer time . with best regards from Ruka Lea / Scandic Rukahovi

I stayed at the apartments (5min walk from main hotel) and found it to be excellent. Large, clean and featuring a small kitchen area, sauna, clothes dryer and ski storage.
At the hotel the breakfasts were superb and had plenty of choice for anyone's need. The half board dinner buffet was varied but sadly no use to me and I found it annoying that you were expected to eat in a certain area at a certain time.

The staff were all brilliant, very friendly and helpful with any problems you may have. The restaurant itself was nice though very expensive, although this seems to be the norm in Ruka village.

All in all I enjoyed my stay and would recommend the hotel or apartments to travellers just be wary of evening food.

The service is friendly and it's a big hotel with a lot of corridors filled with rooms. The saunas are on the third floor. The breakfast is on the third floor via a corridor, but the view from there is great. They have everything you need for breakfast (pancakes for children, cereals, karjalan piirakka, sausage, meatballs, beans, eggs, bacon, bread, fruits, youghurt and so on). The room was clean. But it's an old hotel so keep this in mind..the room was so hot during the night in the Summer that the had to keep a window open (not a good air circulation). And after a shower in the morning we went for breakfast and when we came back the while room was moist and smelled funny..so keep the window open during Summer. On the first floor there was boardgames for free to play/use and a pool table (pool cost something like 10 eur per hour). There is also a big restaurant and bar on the first floor. They don't have a drink menu, but you can order and see if the bartender knows how to do this drink. All in all, it was a good hotel near everything you need during your stay (walking distance everywhere) but it's an old hotel.

Great location in central position of Ruka Village. It is truely ski-in, ski-out hotel. Rooms have not been refurbished in whole (our room had newly done bathroom but not bedroom). If you want to have something fancy, this definitely is not your choice. But in my opinion there is a good value for your money at this hotel.
Breakfast has something for everyone and tables were cleaned quickly. If you ski, there is a ski room where you can keep your skis and don't need to take those to your room. There is a drier in the room (for ski clothes, helmets, boots etc).

Stayed in the apartments during Easter. The location is great near the main center. Parking is tricky and the road to drive is very narrow. The apartment is quiet good with an amazing view. The fan and stove didn't work well and kitchen equipment are not good. When we arrived in the room we notice that it was not well cleaned (toilet was not flushed and there was dust and hair on the floor). WiFi didn't also work during whole of the time of over stay. With small efforts these apartments would get a much better review.

Stayed in the apartments which are a short walk from the little town. Had it's own sauna room and basic kitchen appliances. We did the walk to breakfast the first morning in our snow suit but after that went without as they were a bit cumbersome. Breakfast had a great range of food from cereals, toast, cooked, salads, croissants and a choice of juices, tea and coffee. Staff all very friendly.

We went to a resort nearby last year. Was after Xmas tried to book the Santa village which was about an hour away but was given our money back because there wasn’t enough bookings. Could have got a bus there but wouldn’t risk it myself. You can hire clothing. We only had my 9 yr old grandson with us. It was his first ski, he loved the holiday anyway. Scenery amazing, it is so cold, if you decide to do the husky rides I had all the correct clothing was hands and feet still cold. Well worth going though.
