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.

We left from Italy with the desire to see the Northern Lights, but we were bewitched by the landscapes, the silence and the beauty of Lapland. The structure is spectacular, the suites are large and with a breathtaking view from all sides, completely immersed in the nature and at the same time close to both the village of Santa Claus and the starting point for many of the activities. The rooms are great, clean, well organized and the private sauna has its weight in the evaluation. :)

The hotel is lovely. Beautiful and comfortable cottage and very warm and friendly staff. The location was ideal. Great breakfast too and excellent housekeeping staff. Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed staying in the luxury cottage.

Pros: Huge room with all the luxuries ones needs and more Amazing view Great bed Proper sauna Clean (except for that one dirty sock left behind) Cons: Unexperienced staff Continental breakfast not up to the standard - why is there no Finnish specialties on offer? Food in the restaurant is not up to the standard

Zero flexibility even given the Threat of Russian aggression in the region. We booked a room for a March 10-13, 2022. We cancelled the booking on March 3rd given the escalation of Russian aggression in the region and heated verbal exchanges between Finland and Russia. The cancellation policy grace period expired that same date at 3pm but given time zone difference we cancelled a few hours past the local time. Expedia advocated for the $1,200 refund and they refused. We advocated for a date change authorization to same dates next year and they refused. I find it unconscionable that the hotel offered zero flexibility given the circumstances.

We really enjoyed our stay in a large cabin in February 2022. It was a nice size for five (two parents, two kids, and a grandparent.). The location was super convenient with kids. It’s a five minute drive from the airport. We were also able to plan several activities at Santa’s Village (huskies, snowmobiling, seeing Santa) so it was really easy to walk to them and not have to spend a lot of time in a car. We got picked up easily for reindeer and Northern lights tours. The cabin were well equipped and clean. We enjoyed the sauna in the downstairs bathroom. We also got sleds from the front desk and sledded behind our cabin. Breakfast was nice and had the usual buffet fare to include lots of hot choices, yogurts, cereals, pastries, etc. We ate dinner at the restaurant a few times and really enjoyed the food. The menu and kids menu is small but worked for us. Prices were to be expected for a hotel restaurant. The dining space is large which was nice so we could be a bit spread out from others. We also went to the Three Elves in Santa’s Village which is a good choice for dinner as well for a few different choices. The hotel also packed us a breakfast bag on the day we left as we left to earlier for the buffet which was a nice perk. Check the website for direct booking. We booked directly on the website and got a round trip airport transfer complimentary.

Aarhus, Denmark21 contributions17 helpful votes
Taking into account that we paid 2.000 EUR for 3 nights in an Aurora Suite (2 parents, 2 kids), it was a disappointing experience. Very bad arrival: we arrived at 19.50 after a long day of travelling. Restaurant closes at 21.00 (due to covid restrictions), last order at 20.00. All good, I thought, but NO, for some reasons they could not really explain (the restaurant was only half full, not busy at all) we could not order any food, so the recommended us to use Wolt or go to the cafeteria at the local Shell station 200m away. So, we spend the first evening of a quite expensive holiday at Shell..... It is unbelievable that they were not even capable of fixing a simple meal from the kitchen for us. The good: The Aurora Suite was a really nice hotel room with beautiful big windows giving a fantastic view to the forest. Very clean, good beds, perfectly quiet. The bad: the way the rest of the hotel i run, especially the restaurant, could be way more enthusiastic. Meeting the staff was like meeting someone working in the public sector. The food in the restaurant, especially the lunch buffet, is at best average. In the evening, it is much better, although there is still room for improvement.

The location in Santa Claus Village is great if you like Chrismas. The rooms are clean, beautifully decorated. Breakfast: a lot of choice Great to have a personal sauna. Cleaning was good. No possibility to book trips Expensive to book a transfer from the airport (30 to 50 euro for < 5km) Not all the rooms are facing north, you expect that for the 'aurora suite'. There are a lot of trees and street light, so we weren't able to see aurora from the bedroom with the very big windows.

Very nice hotel to stay as family with kids. Just the guest beds are suboptimal as there is a gap in height between upper and lower part that is very uncomfortable. We had to help ourselves with bathrobes. The rooms are good and it is very comfortable to have an own sauna, fireplace as well as kitchen in the chalets. We used it a few times due to Corona regulations. It is close to the Christmas village which is very empty in the evening and it has a great special atmosphere to have the village for oneself.

The hotel id beautiful and comfortable. The service is friendly tho towels weren’t replenished. I suggest the reindeer enclosure at the hotel entrance be enlarge (by a lot). These 2 reindeer live there permanently and as is it’s a bummer. If the reindeer had room to roam it would be a lot more interesting, beautiful and humane.
