We were having a dinner in Hotel Inari restaurant after couple of days hiking in Lemmenjoki area. Restaurant staff was again very friendly and pizza's were extremely delicious. We have visited this place almost every summer vacation and always had a similar positive experience. Warmly recommended.
We went in winter, attracted by the glass-topped igloos hoping to lie in bed watching the Northern Lights. The igloos have a tiny toilet and wash basin, but it is a very long walk to the shower block. You have to crouch down to get into the cabins. The beds are comfortable, but otherwise everything is very cramped. It is a huge resort complex with luxury cabins, etc., and the food for dinner at its various restaurants is satisfactory as are the buffet breakfasts. Definitely do NOT choose the igloos, but instead one of the luxury, fully en-suited cabins. Great activities all around.
The rooms were faultless, clean comfortable and roomy with a great view. Food at the next door Hotel Inari was surprisingly good for a set menu. Breakfast was extensive and dinner was top quality with large portions. Staff were at all times pleasant and very helpful;
We have stayed two nights in this hotel close by the Lake Inari. The hotel is modern and new, which is a contrast with the Lapland buildings and the surroundings constructions. However, it is very comfortable and has a good wifi connection. We haven't requested a room with a Lake view, so we had the view to the trees... Try to request a Lake view because it should be much better. Price is reasonable for the room we had.
I am writing this review from the hotel room this is most beautiful resort in village Inari . Nice & friendly staff , near & clean rooms with sauna inside , breakfast is not good at all very poor & choice is restricted . The inhouse activities are good we did husky which was mind-blowing & snowmobile ride @ night that was the most stunning experience . I will surely suggest this resort & there lovely activity .
Stayed here for 4 nights from 17.01.2016. The room is quite good, neatly maintained, with its own sauna, boot/socks dryer, place to hang winter wear, nice big TV. Bathroom is quite good as well. I changed my reservation way too many times and not once was I frowned upon. Breakfast is served right next door in hotel inari which is a stone's throw away. Recommend to take the lake view room. The place is so peaceful, and calm. PS : I even got locked out one night, saw the auroras and jumped out forgetting to take my key at 4:45am I the freezing ( -29 degree C) cold. One call and the owner himself came and opened the door for me. If I go back to Ivalo again, which I will soon, I will stay here for sure.
Great location right on Lake Inari for seeing the Northern Lights. Rooms were spacious and included a sauna in the bathroom. No bar fridge, so we needed to improvise for keeping milk, and rooms were centrally heated and very warm, almost too warm. Breakfast was great, a wide selection, lovely dining room at the Hotel Inari. Hotel room was very quiet. Beds comfortable and a luxurious bathroom, Would recommend to family and friends.
Very conveniently located, newly built place. The rooms have big windows which can give a good view of the Aurora. There is a separate place to hang up your winter gear, complete with boot dryer. Each room includes a sauna, which is nice. The rooms are very well insulated and warm. My only (mild) complaint is that despite being new, there were already maintenance issues. One of the headboard reading lights over the bed was broken, and the timer on the sauna didn't work. It was basically on or off, and it takes a long time to heat up. The housekeeper doesn't replace or clean coffee cups, which was a bit of a nuisance because you have nothing to clean them with except hair and body wash, which I do not recommend. Tip: not the hotel's fault, but on good Aurora nights the Chinese tourists would stand immediately outside our window, talking loudly and taking pictures. If you like privacy, you should ask for an upstairs room or one not on the side of the building close to Hotel Inari.…
We stayed a week at the resort. Centrally located and facing the famous lake it is worth a stay. Very friendly people and excellent little restaurant. Rooms have a private sauna. You find two supermarkets and an interesting sami culture museum in the direct neighbourhood. I did a hiking trail to the suspension bridge. Fantastic views. Bus connections to other holiday destinations in case you get bored. We went to Saariselkä and enjoyed the day trip. If you are interested in Chinese culture, then the resort is your place to be. We were surrounded by tons of giggling Chinese young people every day and night. Very entertaining. To put it in a nutshell, a fantastic place with many offers. Don't miss the superior restaurant at Kultahovi Hotel nearby. I spent an hour at the diner which is par of the petrol station watching the locals. Finland at its best. Nobody said any word. Total silence. Great fun.…
We had booked the Inari Aurora resort through Booking.com. It said on the site that the hotel was due to be completed in March 2014. On arriving the hotel was still a building site with construction (painting) ongoing at the time of arrival. The Inari Aurora resort also has no reception but you have to get the key from the tour office (the one with the canoes outside) next door. When we eventually found the office the staff were very apologetic about the construction site and offered us a refund and were helpful in finding another room. All credit to them but the owners of the hotel should be embarrassed at offering something for sale which is incomplete. The actual rooms in the resort which is a new building next to the Hotel Inari are nice and well appointed with great views of the lake. We eventually stayed at the hotel Inari after receiving a refund from the Inari Aurora resort. Curiously they share the new building, adjacent to the Hotel Inari, with the hotel Inari (confused yet ?) having half the rooms each. We had an upstairs room in the new building which was nice and a bit further away from the construction So if you are coming here enquire after the state of the building work and maybe opt for the Hotel Inari instead.…
