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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The hotel was very nice. I had a room with a view of the rapids. The location just in front of the lake inari is unbeatable. In the room was a very nice sauna, with a bench on the patio. The breakfast had many local delicacies. The hotel staff is very nice and speak english very well.

Tradition Hotel Kultahovi has two buildings: Traditional Hotel in the main building (basic rooms) and a separate River Hotel (superior rooms). We stayed four nights in River Hotel and this review is based on it. The hotel isn't any luxury hotel but it is perfect if you need peaceful sleep, beautiful views, nature experiences, hiking, delicious food and a central location but still surrounded by a forest. We had a beautiful room with rapids view, blackout curtains, an own electric sauna, a refrigerator, a drying cabinet for clothes and a self adjustable air conditioning system (no very efficient cooling). It was very relaxing to keep a ventilation window open (there is an insect net) and both listen and watch the rapids. We saw reindeer and (almost) the midnight sun from our window, too. Our sleep quality was excellent. Beds were very comfortable and we didn't hear any noise. The location of the hotel is perfect: next to Alakoski Rapids, 100 meters from a big playground, 300 meters from Sami Cultural Centre Sajos, 400 meters from Neste Inari Juutuantörmä (a gas station with a restaurant: pizzas, hamburgers etc.), 700 meters from Gastro Pub PaPaNa, 800 meters from a grocery store (K-market Inari), less than 1 kilometer from Sami Museum Siida and Lake Inari Cruises, 2 kilometers from the big Jäniskoski Rapids. The Juutua Trail and a hiking trail to Fell Otsamo (8-9 kilometers in one direction, first along Juutua Trail and then a separate route from the Jäniskoski Suspension Bridge) start from the hotel yard. The breakfast buffet is good. They cook and serve only a small amount of food at a time. So many bowls may be empty but they bring more food if you wait. However, that may take a while. But they bring new food even three minutes before breakfast service closes. On Saturday 23rd July 2022 there were very many dishes left undone on tables. Other morning were better. Service was kind and quick. Besides, there is extremely beautiful rapids view from the breakfast room, too. Their dinner restaurant is absolutely excellent, but you need a table reservation. Hotel Kultahovi is easily accessible with a public bus. We came with a bus (Eskelisen Lapinlinjat) from Rovaniemi to the hotel. The nearest bus stop (Sajos bus stop) is situated 450 meters from the hotel and the main bus stop of Inari ("the bus station") 800 meters from the hotel. I also heard that it is possible to ask the driver of Eskelisen Lapinlinjat to drive a detour to the parking place of the hotel. We informed the reception of the hotel one day before our check-out and they called to the bus company so that the bus to Rovaniemi picked us up directly from the stairs of the hotel. What a superb service!

At first, the room seemed rather small and plain but in the end I realized it was quite comfortable. The bed was narrow but comfortable, too. The overall service was excellent and the dinner at the restaurant absolutely fabulous!

The hotel consists of two buildings; the older one (tradition hotel) has some rooms and the restaurant and great atmosphere. The other building (river hotel) has rooms as well with rapid views and saunas at each room. Thus I would recommend to book rooms here if possible.. The rooms are quite basic but yet functional. There is plenty of complimentary parking space next to buildings. The service was friendly. Good price-value.

Good welcome by the staff, room is very nice, with a balcony to the river side, with a forest impression due to trees all around. Proximity of walking tracks and village center. Breakfast was excellent with changes every morning

We love "our" room in the building where rooms have private saunas. Cosy, clean and quaint. Dogs like the patio. Window is facing towards the rapids of River Juutua. Customer service is lovely. Walking distance from the centre of Inari.

The hotel was build in 1930's and the main building stems from that time. The rooms are small, but nicely renovated. Try to get a room with a view towards the Juutua river. There is also a new building, with bigger rooms, but the original building is more authentic and cosy. Good location, walking distance to Siida museum, the few restaurants in Inari and some shorter walking trails. Service at the reception & from the owner is appropriate and to the point, but a bit leery and not really super welcoming. The hotel restaurant Aanar is by far the best restaurant in Inari - competing in standard with best restaurants in Helsinki.

A food haven in Inari, Hotel Kultahovi’s restaurant Aanar. Definitely worth a longer drive, too. We are truly amazed. Adventurous, delicious and beautiful with warm service. Quality, not just quantity. Not cheap but not a rip-off either. Wowowow!
