We spent one night there. We chose the place based on location and to be pet friendly. We had a junior suite and we were satisfied with what we got for our money. The location is one of the best in Ruka. They have pet welcome gift which I guess softens the heart of any dog owner. Next time in Ruka I would definitely go back there, whether is summer or winter!

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

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.

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.

After a long walk through the worn out corridors to the backside of the hotel I wasn't expecting much. What I got was thousand times more I expected to have paying only standard room. The room was very clean and modern. I got a stunning view of the slopes. The room was functional with enough space and the freezer saved my snacks too. I enjoyed a nice hot shower in the bathroom and a good night sleep in the comfy bed. Only fault was some noises from the corridor and the other rooms, but I think it is just a part of living in the hotel.
