We spent a long weekend at Rukatonttu early February. RukaTonttu is located only a five minute walk from the Ruka center with all restaurants and services. Peacefully located by a lake you can either stay in the hotel or in apartments. We had a very nice, clean and cosy hotel room in the basement with an entrance practically out on the lake. Outside you also have the possibility to swim in the lake around the year (yes it's cold). If you ski the nearest lift is only some 50 meters from the hotel and if Nordic skiing is of interest it can be done on the lake. We will definitely return. Worth mentioning is the very nice personnel managed by the very owner Matti.

We stayed in the smaller (43 sqm) apartment in RukaTonttu. The advertising states that it's suitable for a small family. This is to be believed. We were just two adults so the place was ok but it would not work for 4 or even 3 adults. One or two kids might be ok. That said, the apartment does hold everything - a sauna, two toilets, kitchen area, dinner table and a small couch plus two bedrooms (one of which only fits a bunk bed). There's also a drying cabinet and outdoor storage for skis and a balcony. A big big minus is the non-existent soundproofing. You can hear everything from above, below and next door and this can be a bit embarrassing or downright annoying (think barking dogs). But the location is unbeatable, you can hop onto your skis literally from outside your door and go downhill or crosscountry. The Ruka village is 500 metres away (escalators going up) with all its services. The RukaTonttu customer service is very good and friendly.

January 2016. We stayed in the hotel but transferred to an apartment. HOTEL - is very comfortable. Twin beds. Hairdryer. TV. It has a drying cupboard for damp clothing. Under floor heating in the shower room is extremely nice. There was no shower gel or shampoo. Only criticism is that the room was too hot. We had to request kettle as there was not one in the room. APARTMENT - The apartment had two twinned bedrooms. The lobby area has a coat cupboard and there is also a drying cupboard too. The shower room has under floor heating, a toilet and sauna. There was also a separate toilet. Table and chairs that seat six. Didn't use the log fire as, again, the apartment was too hot. Would say that if the top damper of the log burner (on the wall) is pulled out... it lets in a tremendous draught. All the apartments appear to have a balcony and there is a launderette in the basement. Everything you need for self catering is there. RESTAURANT - Breakfast was included in our package. Usual fare on offer, cereal, hot and cold food together with tea/coffee/squash. Lunch time snacks available which is fresh cooked and hot. Had two evening meals one of which Matti prepared planked smoked fish... really tasty ! LOCATION - Beautiful location in Winter and would imagine it to be in Summer also. Set on a vast lake surrounded by fir streets. Ski Slopes can be seen from the hotel/apartment and are lit in the evening. It is about a 450m uphill walk to the escalator that takes you up the hill into Ruka Village. However, on the occasions I used it.. it didn't work and had to walk up the 75 steps! We were told that you have to push a button and it would start but the button is not in an obvious place. It brings to out to a car park and the village is not far from that. You have to have a reasonable amount of fitness to walk into Ruka. RUKA VILLAGE Plenty of bars/restaurants/shops/supermarkets etc. All in all... a pleasant trouble free vacation. Thank you to Matti and his team... professional and very friendly.

In late August, Ruka is something like a ghost town, with dozens of fancy ski challets, all locked and deserted. But Ruka Tontu hotel is small enough to feel cozy even in off-season's low capacity. It's beautiful setting and comfortable rooms are nothing compared to the excellent service of Matti, the manager, the most patient and helpful man we have met in a long time. Coming back from Karhunkierros trek earlier than expected due to a knee problem, he received us with open arms and helped us re-plan our trip and change reservations in our next destinations. All of that he did with a constant smile and true willingness to help us and make us feel happy and relaxed. Thank you Matti!

We spent here one night in June after walking the Karhunkierros trail. I don't know if our room was larger than the ordinary ones since we reserved a room for three adults and two dogs, but at least the room that we were assigned to was reasonably roomy even for our lot, with lots of cupboard space (plus a drying closet!). So if that's the size and equipment of a standard room, I'm sure that it would be a very good option for a longer skiing trip - you really have some room to live there even with all your space-consuming winter stuff. The room was clean and seemed new, no signs of wear and tear that are usually apparent in non-allergy hotel rooms that are allowed for pets. The hotel didn't really acknowledge the presence of our dogs at all, a thing that some Finnish chain hotels tend to do (giving some kind of a welcome package with treats and poo bags etc.), certainly not a problem for me, just a notion if anyone else traveling with pets is interested. We did not have dinner at the hotel restaurant, only breakfast, but it seemed really cozy and nice with the lake-view and all. The time of our stay was probably the quietest period of a year, so no wonder there wasn't that many staff members around. The ones that we encountered were friendly and helpful. Overall, we were really happy with our brief stay.
