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.

My niece and I stayed here last weekend. It’s a short drive from the airport and cost around 20Euros.
The hotel is lovely and we had a room with a sauna. Only tip is make sure the heating is switched off before you sleep or it’ll come on through the night (it’s great if you feel cold, not so great if you get too warm like I do!).
There are supermarkets right outside the hotel. This is so handy as we picked up snacks and little souvenirs and the prices were so decent. The bus stop is about 10mins walk. We needed to get the bus for our friends wedding and they stayed in Saariselka (30mins bus drive and around 15euros) and Kaakslautenan for the wedding (45mins and around 20Euros). The bus timetable is widely available and easy to use, point to note is one bus stop no matter which direction you’re going.
The breakfast buffet was good and had a variety. No labels, so it wasn’t easy to see what’s suitable for vegetarians. We stuck with easy to identify options and there was plenty to choose from.
Staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful. It’s so nice knowing the water from the tap is the safe to drink from and we had a kettle and plenty of instant hot drink sachets to choose from.
The hotel is a nightclub venue, rest assured it’s not noisy or disruptive at all. In a quiet town like ivalo, it’s nice knowing we are the favoured hotspot in the town.
Cafes and restaurants are within walking distance and people are friendly and approachable. We had a wonderful weekend in Ivalo, and we’re lucky to have had a chance to check out the nearby towns because of our friends wedding.
Highly recommend this hotel and the this town too. The snow is beautiful and the subzero temps were refreshing.

I had a pleasant stay at Kultahippu Hotel. Its location is central to different sights in Ivalo. Just behind it is the Ivalo river. It was frozen and you could walk on it. Aside from that, I did like the ambiance in the hotel and restaurant. They do have good food. You can also book leisure activities such as Northern light tours, dog sleighs, etc at the hotel, which really makes it convenient. For low-budget travelers like me, it was a good luxury on but very affordable for people like me who are on a low budget.

A really convenient location, great quality food (both taste and presentation), very helpful and welcoming staff who were interested in making our stay memorable. Room/amenities warm clean and relatively quiet, just some noisy guests which wasn't the property's fault. Wonderful location right on the river. With the aid of local knowledge we were even able to see the Northern Lights a short walk from the hotel! Would love to stay in the summer

Beautiful the structure (especially the new rooms), recommended their restaurant (serves reindeer and fish dishes typical but revisited in a gourmet key).
Excellent cleanliness and location (close to market, main roads and 15 minutes drive to the airport).

Recommended!

Kultahippu may not be a very big hotel but the rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished. The restaurant serves excellent food and there is a big supermarket right across the street. Plus if you are lucky enough, you may even spot the aurora right behind the hotel!

Location was excellent, next to groceryshop and all other services. Public areas were tidy and cosy. Room was clean and compact. Our room was located to newer building and has it own sauna and balcony with nice river view. Only slight issues we had with tv and buffet info at breakfast. We didn't manage to make the casting work no matter what we tried, and yes, we know how to do it and been done it before. At breakfast I needed to bother the staff to know what was available at the buffet because there was no infotags in every item. Staff was very smiley and friendly and made me feel welcomed.

Thank you for your valuable feedback - we appreciate it. Unfortunately the chrome casts are not very cooperative sometimes and those errors are difficult to fix here on the spot. And you had a good point with the missing labels on each dish at breakfast. We will try to squeeze those in. We hope to see you here again!

Our family of four stayed here for one night on our way up north.

To our surprise, we were not placed to the main hotel, but to a completely different building a few hundred meters away, across the intersection from the hotel. Ok, no biggie. Our room was 602. The service at the hotel was very friendly, the directions to the building were slightly confusing but we did find the accommodation.

So we stayed in an old bank building. The flat was clean and modern with a private sauna. Wifi worked well, and it was also very quiet. No complaints.

Across the street, you can find a large market and liquor store and a few hundred meters away other services.

The hotel is ideally located in Ivalo, with a supermarket and many shops accessible by foot (5-10min max). The atmosphere feels like a cabin and the rooms are very nice. The sauna is available for 1h30 every day for women then men, which would be nice to be able to have a little longer slots.
The restaurant is really good, most likely the best in the city, which doesn't have many nice restaurants, the other ones are fast food, and this one serves really good food.

Accomodation, breakfast, staff...everything worked fine for me.
And location in the middle of the Ivalo village, next to the beautiful ice breaking Ivalo river brought perfect terms for me to take care of my work during 3 working days and then relaxing next to the nature.

There isn’t a service like Uber in Ivalo but there are good local taxis 24/7 - there are usually taxis waiting at the airport but you can prebook. I’ve never used them so I can’t tell you the prices.

How much for 1h full body massage at hotel Kultahippu?
Answer from Kultahippu

Hello, thank you for your request. At this point we do not have a massage service at our hotel - unfortunately. We can help you to locate a masseuse service in Ivalo area though. With Best Regards,

Brenda - the short answer is not many. I went with Finnair scheduled flights from Heathrow to Helsinki. If you can get from EDI or GLA to Helsinki you'll get an easy connection. Also look out for charter flights at winter time. Monarch and Thomson may both fly that far north. Check out Ivalo airport website for destinations.
