We have stay a night at this hotel during visiting Rovaniemi. The hotel looks a little bit old, but is very well maintained. The room was comfortable and clean. From the hotel to the McDonald's restaurant and shopping street just 5 to 10 minutes walking distance and from hotel to Arktikum Science Meseum just 15 minutes walking distance. That's very...

we spent a week there during a tourist group vacation. Rovaniemi is very well situated having within a small radius a lot of wonderful attractions. As I figure the hotel was chosen since it's one of the better ones in the city. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and neat. All the places are very well heated and last but not...

Dear Alain, thank you for you great review of our hotel. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and your compliments regarding meals will be forwarded to our kitchen staff. The swimming pool is meant for refreshing after sauna so that's why water temperature is max. +21 degrees. But we wish you very nice spring and we...

We are currently staying at cumulus resort Pojanhovi. We have booked a family room. Our room is located in the adjacent building. The room is quite spacious and clean, but it would need some refurbishment. Big bathroom as well. Room service is very reliable. The Pool could be warmer. We had breakfast and dinner at the Hotel. The meals, especillay...

Normal hotel, conveniently located. The rooms have the necessary minimum of things. Warm, even hot (it was February). Rooms and lobby are clean. A delicious variety of food in the restaurant. A good sauna and swimming pool, where you can then sit next to the fireplace. Courteous, friendly, helpful staff. Basically, we only slept in the hotel and rest a...

This is an old and dated hotel. The better quality rooms are just about acceptable but how are you supposed to order room service when there is no phone? The standard rooms reached via a tunnel are only one star and unacceptable. I have seen budget hostels with better quality furniture and fittings. Like the hotel staff are of varying...

We've stayed here for four nights, and it was a great base for exploring the arctic circle. The rooms were ok, breakfast was pretty good and reception staff was very knowledgeable about the city and region. Would I come back? Probably yes!

Whiht these finnish chain hotels you know what you get. Average tree star hotel but I have nothing to complain about. Location is good. And it's nice to have a kettle in the room. I would hope for a gym. For some reason, hotels in Rovaniemi are rather expensive.

We travelled on one of Thomson's Lapland trips and were at the hotel for four nights. The local area of Rovaniemi was a little bit more populated and we preferred it to Levi Fells. The local restaurants and markets were a little pricey, but the beauty of this village-sized city made up for it! Firstly, the rooms were good, they...

Rooms are a little old-fashioned but with good furniture and a functional bathroom. The place obviously has a long history. Pool is freezing cold! Location is great though, right by the river. Breakfast buffet is also very good.
