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 stayed in a spacious and cozy room. Enjoyed much during the stay, especially there is sauna inside the room. Receptionists are supernice and caring, especially Mark. They helped us call taxis when we needed and clearly showed usthe direction to our rooms and details with breakfast and dinner. Would visit again if there is a chance to be in Rovaniemi in the future.

We stayed three nights in a lovely family room on the fouth floor of the Arctic Light Hotel right in the center of the city. The service was really friendly both at the reception and in the restaurant where we had an excellent Rasberry Menu. The breakfast is excellent, too. Warm recommendation❤️

Spent two days in Rovaniemi and this hotel was top tier. I came from the US and the hospitality coming from this hotel made me fall in love with Finland. Specifically the front desk host, Mark, was so kind and helpful towards us being tourists and asking for help multiple times throughout the night. Can’t wait to come back Finland now. Had a great experience!

The rooms are exactly like on the photos, super comfortable and roomy. Underfloor heating in bathroom is a nice addition. Robes, slippers, coffee station, hair dryer provided (hidden in wardrobe). Sauna included in a room price along with fantastic, buffet style breakfast. The breakfast is out of this world, the best so far I had. Just after entering restaurant you are welcomed with champagne glasses waiting to be filled with chilled (alcohol free) lakka, recommend to try, very nice. Rich selection of food - eggs, yogurt (vegan option also available) , mini wafers, pastry, fruit, jam, smoked salmon, ham, cheese board, reindeer or salmon spread, selection of sweets, coffee from the coffee machine (diary free milk also available), muesli, three or four kind of smoothies (in small shot glasses). You can't wait next day to have this breakfast again!!! Great value for money considering quality, cleanliness, size of the room and friendly staff, ready to help with everything. Great location, bus to Santa Village just around the cornet, airport shuttle bus across the front door. Lastly for lunch highly recommend nearby restaurant - Gustav (lunch menu 12-2pm) - 5 min walk.

The room we had, was very beautiful, like we saw on the pictures online. Very comfortable. They have a small but lovely sauna we could use to warm us up, after a long adventerous day outside. As well we were absolutely happy with the friendly stuff, especially with Max from the reception. Thank you Max, you made our stay extra special.

I've not stayed at a hotel that serviced its guests better than the team at Arctic Light. Service, comfort, style, and location. Make sure you take advantage of the breakfast! A special thank you to the chef who took the time to make special eggs for my wife and I both mornings of our stay.

One of the few hotels in Finland that I rate worth five stars. Stylishly decorated, spacious room. As a detail, loved the placement of TV: pleasant to watch both from the sofa and from the bed. Excellent breakfast. It often feels that in Finnish hotels a traveller with a dog is a second-class customer to some extent, but not this time. We stayed with dogs and the location of the pet-friendly room was just brilliant: really easy to get out for a walk as there were only a few steps to the courtyard and because of that minimal disturbance to other customers. Dogs were even welcome to the hotel's glass terrace. Thank you for the modern attitude towards pets!

This hotel really went beyond my expectations. The hospitality was next level, decor was comfortable and chic, and food was AMAZING. I cannot thank Mark at the front desk enough for his guidance and assistance. He helped us navigate our short stay. THANK YOU MARK! I will return to this hotel when I stay in Rovaniemi- everything was perfect.

So many choices in Rovaniemi but we decided on the Arctic Light! We loved the hotel. The breakfast was great! Lot's of variety and everything very fresh and well presented. We also had dinner one night, and it was excellent as well. Hotel is very clean and modern. We found our room to be very spacious and beds were very comfortable. Not sure if we will ever be back but would for sure come back to the Arctic Light!
