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.

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.

Pleasant overnight stay. Good breakfast and lunch too. The rooms were clean albeit a little outdated -new furnishings could be in order. We were in the 'old wing', I can't comment on the new building.Service here has always been good-I have stayed here on numerous occasions - and the hotel was quiet.

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!

This cosy hotel and very friendly reception lady made my visit in Ivalo feel good. My car got broken and I choose Hotel Kultahippu to wait it to be repaired. Nice renovated room, comfortable bed and fresh linen. I appreciate also possibility to cook hot water for coffee and tea. Also refrigerator is nice to have in the room. Good and versatile breakfast buffet was served. I used to go for breakfast at around 9 a.m. (breakfast was until 10 a.m.) . In the second morning some of the food was out of stock. But Okay - I got enough. I also can recommend good and varied lunch. From the reception lady I got some hints for walking routes - nice. At the end of the day I enjoyed from the very good sauna.

Very enjoyable visit to Kultahippu. Friendly reception. Modest but charming and clean rooms, very nice sauna, good breakfast - simple but tasty dinner (one try only, though). And of course superb location by the river Ivalo, and in the middle of crossroads to Nellim, Saariselkä and Inari.

We got an upgrade of our apartment. It was a large apartment and everything was very clean. The restaurant from the hotel serves great food and the portions are big. The staff was always very friendly and the communication regarding the booking was very clear.

Really friendly staff. Nice and clean rooms. Loved the sauna as well. Breakfast was good, enough choice. Had dinner once, was also good! Beds are nice and big enough. The location is great. Next to the supermarket.
