In the bar of the hotel you can taste meet of the deers and other local tasty things. Many local musicians perform in the bar sometimes. During the film festival (Midnight Sun Film Festival) the hotel is full.

Not the most elegant, and the rooms are basic and a little tired. But the breakfast has good variety. The highlight is the menu of the restaurant, lots of variety, and all good. The wine list is basic but enough verity for a few nights....

Actually the better of the two hotels in Sodankylä! It is far from good, in need of renovation and oudated decor. But rooms are of decent size and staff is friendly. Breakfast quite good. Don't expect five star-quality but don't shy away either!

Hotelli Sodankylä is one of the few accommodation places in the small northern Finnish town Sodankylä which is famous for its annual international film festivals that are organized in mid-June. Hotel is pretty standard and in an acute need for updating. Rooms are of good size but material outdated. A major drawback during warm summer days is the lack of airconditioning. Therefore rooms may be pretty hot which is annoying. Staff in the hote is very friendly and the restaurant serves excellent food.

Dear Dr .Booska Thank You for visiting us and giving us feedback. We are small and we are old BUT we will do our best to create more things to do, attractions to recommend for travellers, places to visit nearby and of course developing our services. At this moment most of the services in Sodankylä center are for independent travellers, enjoying the nature by hiking, skiing, watching northern lights, snowshoeing etc. Aurora House 10km is a great place to visit, Luosto offers lots of activities (38km) etc. We appreciate all Your comments and add these to our developing plans. We wish You a nice Year of 2017. Welcome to visit again, next year will be our 50th operating year. with best wishes, Raili
