My review is a little bias because we spotted the Aurora Borealis from there which was by chance and totally unexpected. The lights put on a show for a good 45 minutes. The hotel sends you alerts on the electronic devices in your room. The room was beautiful with the magnificent glass panels and ceiling, gorgeous to sleep under the stars if its not covered with snow. The amenities are extremely basic for the price you pay @700euros. Just a kettle provided with no cups nor any tea or coffee. Also disappointing is that there is no spa facility of even a basic sauna or steam. The breakfast served is nice and substantial but the restaurant is closed for lunch and open again only for dinner from 5pm onwards. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful and obliging which made the experience a little better. The hotel is very well located, close to the husky park and Santa's village. Overall a great experience but for the price you pay and amenities you get will have to rethink visiting again. Aniysha & Emil Seyfferdt

Beautiful place, helpful staff and excellent dinner The property is very beautiful, the reception is small and very nice, the restaurant is in a beautiful space and dinner is highly recommend. Unfortunately in such an expensive accommodation (750 euro per room) you would except to have some kind of spa, and certainly sauna and jacuzzi, but there are no spa facilities. The room The Igloos glass ceiling is spectacular, and it is real fantastic experience going to sleep under the sky (we had all curtains fully open) The room itself is very basic, and even Spartan, the living area floor is heated but not the entrance floor and not the bathroom floor. The bathroom is small, not enough place to put your things, No proper toiletries, no lotion. The pillow was not comfortable, and only one, no down blankets No water bottles in the room. The iPad was glued to the wall Breakfast Very nice buffet, beautiful space and very helpful staff Over all a beautiful experience, but it is overpriced for what it can offer.

Good: Nice and warm staff. Room was nice and gozy. Nice design lobby, room and restaurant. Breakfast: warm meals were very tasty. Things to develop: Douplebed did not stay together. Very slipper, if you do something else than watch Aurora. Breakfast: Eggs should be under heat lamb, now eggs were a bit cold. Also egg cup should be there and little spoons near eggs. Also i would love to eat 3 min eggs.

We stayed one night at one of the igloos. We looked straight out to the parking lot - not were charming. We we’re offed another one but then we had to wait 2 hours for that. So we stayed. The food wasn’t delicious. We went to breakfast 15 min before closing time - and it was completely empty. We asked if it was possible to get some eggs and they made an omelette or whatever it was in protest. We couldn’t eat it. So don’t go there. It’s SO overpriced. The activities that you can book are so commercial that you should it spend your money on it - and by the way - northern light is not something you go chasing. Either it’s there or not.

My wife and I stayed at Santa's Igloos in November 2021 for our honeymoon and really enjoyed the experience. The hotel was just reopening after the Covid-19 pandemic and so was quiet during our visit which we preferred. The hotel Manager Suha was extremely accommodating. As it was our honeymoon he offered us a complementary upgrade from our Glass Igloo to one which contained a Sauna which made the occasion even more memorable. Even one day when our taxi did not seem to arrive, he offered to drive us to our destination in his own car. We can't thank him enough for the service we received. We stayed at the hotel on a bed and breakfast basis. The hotel did not have a lunch or dinner service running due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, it was a short walk to Santa's Village where there were alternative restaurants available. The hotel lobby and main dining area were nicely decorated with a Christmas theme. The front desk staff were all really friendly and often advised us on the likelihood of the Northern Lights being visible each evening. In terms of food, breakfast options were basic, but being vegetarian there was a limited hot food choice. It would have been great to have a few more continental options for the buffet. However, the waffle maker was a real treat each morning. The rooms were very cosy, and surprisingly more spacious than we expected. We enjoyed waking up to the snow and winter skies each morning, and were fortunate enough to see the Northern Lights twice during our visit. The room also had a window heater which would melt the window ice quickly to avoid missing out on any potential Northern Light sightings. We would advise requesting a room where there are no other rooms in front of otherwise your view isn't as nice as it could be given the remote surroundings. Overall we had a great experience and would recommend staying in the hotel during months where Northern Light activity is likely.
