Ideal place to stay if you are looking for value for money. Clean, comfy room with a kettle plus tea/coffee. Approx 10 minutes walk for the Santa Claus hotel where you need to check in. The only negative point to make is having to walk from the main hotel up to the Hotel Rudolf. Especially in the snow pulling suitcases. Would still recommend this hotel as the location is good and it’s value for money.

Hotel located close to the Center Village Rovaniemi. The room are simple and correct. The reception and breakfast is in another building, 10 minutes walking, which is not practical. It’s economical for one night.

We stayed here for only one day. Rovaniemi gets lot of tourists during christmas to new year time, which is when we had visited. We did not have much options to choose from, so had booked which ever was available. The check-in is at a different location 8-10 min from the accommodation. They allowed us to store the luggage for the next day. We used public transport to go to Santa Claus Village, the bus stop was not very far either

Hello, Thank you for your feedback! As you probably noticed, winter time - and especially December - is the high season in Rovaniemi. Most of the days are fully booked even months in advance. We are glad that you stayed at Hotel Rudolf and hopefully had a good time there. Welcome again! Kind regards, Helena

Keyless access (you get the card from Santa Claus hotel). Free parking in the backyard. Small but clean and nice looking room. This is the best way to sleep in Rovaniemi if you stay here just for one night!

Really basic, should be classed as a hostel not a hotel. Had to drag luggafe 750m through the town centre through snow from check in at Hotel Santa Claus. Only needed a cheap room for 1 night before an early morning flight fortunately.

Hello, Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the check-in. We acknowledge that especially during the winter time, the weather conditions might cause some challenges. Hotel Rudolf is considered as an economy hotel with rooms that have all the basic amenities, also with own bathroom in the room. However, as you mentioned, there is no staff in the hotel and for that reason the check-in takes place in Hotel Santa Claus, about 700m away. We hope that you enjoyed your time in Rovaniemi and look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back.
