Simple hotel, the room itself is better fitted out compared to the corridor. Breakfast buffet has more choices than the dinner buffet. The toilet is very comfortable, really like the heated bars to hang the towel. Room is set at a comfortable temperature. Kettle and hair dryer provided.

Perfect location right in the centre of restaurants, bars and life in Rovaniemi. \We booked a Double Room which was very spacious.You can see that they take pride in paying attention to detail around the hotel which adds that extra special luxury in Rovaniemi feeling. Breakfast had plenty of options and contested that of many other hotels across Finland. A... More

Hotel was really nice, with all year Xmas atmosphere, rooms were modern, well equipped, breakfast was great. Nice and good bar as well as restaurant. Staff was pleasant. And also good location. The only negative exception was a price for printing out boarding pass (2,50 € / pc.).

In the middle of downtown Rovaniemi lies this hotel which is very nice. It is good but nothing special about it. Everything works, not the best way, not the worst way. Breakfast is ok but not the best in the city. So all in all nothing to complain about but also nothing to cheer about.
