Stayed 1 night and it was magical as it was also snowing. Place was fun but most stuff was tourists priced. Room was neat and clean and with a breakfast included and free shuttle to the airport. Santa office, Santa Post office and many souvenir shops are within walking distance.

We stayed here for a night in September last week when a lot of things were under construction but nonetheless was worth staying at the resort. We were lucky to have the room ready before the official check in time. The staff at the reception was quite helpful. You can meet the Santa at the place just next to the...

So first the fact that you get to stand on the artic circle is mind blowing. We had a fun time with that alone. We stood in line to wait to see Santa (I cannot imagine how long that line is during Christmas). He was worth every second. I was sure I wouldn't buy the overpriced Santa visit video and...

This place is wonderful with little house like a Christmas movie. The room is big with a small kitchen, big bed, tv and internet and sauna inside. The breakfast is great and delicious and the staff are friendly. The hotel offers shuttle service from airport to hotel and vice versa
