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...

Rooms are located to different buildings. Hotel and rooms are propably built late -70's, although rooms renovated but already some wear out visible. Hotel has good location, not too far away from anything essential, expect from ski lifts which any of hotels are not very near although there seems to be ski bus running between hotels and lift.

We stayed there on 26 Jan 2017. The room was big and clean. Buffet breakfast and dinner was acceptable. The hotel is within walking distance to a big supermarket. There was spots to wait for the aurora just beside the hotel.

I spent in the hotel 4 nights. Very nice room with sauna and all comforts. Breakfast good and nice people working there. Reception unfortunately in another building but quite close. A Swimmingpool would have been nice

We booked the twin centre adventure with Inghams but were too late to get the Gielas wing. All of the reviews on here were very complimentary of the Gielas wing but were less complimentary of the Tunturi Hotel itself. We could only get accommodation in a standard room in a Tunturi block. Our expectations were quite low. In reality it...

Our accommodation was warm/ dry and very basic and could have done with correctly fitting sheets to cover the old mattresses. Food was great if you ate in the bar area but the restaurant food was worse than school dinners in the 80's!! The staff team were fantastic though, very polite/ helpful and accommodating.
