We stayed here for a week having booked a ski break through Inghams. The room (in an annexe) was a good size with a good view over the front of the hotel. It had good facilities - a sofa and armchair and a fridge, which was handy, but was quite old-fashioned. The en-suite shower room could have benefitted from an...

We stayed there for 2 nights as part of our group tour's holiday package. The hotel had heated bathroom bars, and that helped us to dry our wet clothes quickly (as we wanted to wash some of our socks/ clothes, and having that heated bar helped to dry it out quicker). The breakfast was quite alright and modest. During the...

The hotel is pretty basic and the rooms are small. The food is buffet style and reasonable for children. We thought the gala dinner though was far too busy and the queueing most unpleasant. Nonetheless we really enjoyed our stay despite the limitations of the hotel and the fact that the flight was significantly delayed both ways. On our spare...

Go for the Geilas suites. Clean, comfortable, with balcony, quick drying cupboard, en-suite sauna. Very good breakfast; and there is a good selection of local flavours for the evening meal at the Tunturi part of the hotel. For a special occasion eat at the Kaltio restaurant within the Geilas hotel; superb. The very well groomed cross country ski-tracks are only...

Most of the hotel decor is very 70's looking at whichever hotel you stay in, in Saariselka. The general areas of this hotel are no different. The hotel is strictly a complex so for dinner you have to leave your accommodation block and go to the central restaurants building. The Gailas wing is more modern with nice typical hotel rooms....

I didn't book the hotel myself which was a mistake. Had a room in some building which was a little difficult to find late in the evening. The smell of mold or something was very strong in the corridor. The room was clean and more lile a hostel than hotel style. The electric kettle was a plus. The price was...

I have stayed and traveled all over Lapland. Levi, Yllas but this hotel in Saariselka is most definitely my favourite. Beautiful suite, sauna, fantastic balcony with views over the church and town. Great to sit out on a late night looking at the stars with a hot chocolate. Suites are very large with warm locker to dry and warm clothes....

We stayed here whilst visiting as part of a Santa's Lapland 4 day trip. We stayed in one of the type B suites that had a separate bedroom, living area, kitchen, sauna and drying cupboard for your clothes. The room was more than big enough for our family of 4. The room was clean and had good amenities. The sauna...
