This place has similar rates than a superior room in an established Nordic hotel chain. You'd think that the price would be reflected in quality, but no. The rooms do not have air conditioning, so it is scorching hot. Ventilation through the window is not possible as there are no mosquito nets installed - a crucial thing in Lapland. The minibar fridges have been taken out of use, but left in the rooms anyway for some weird reason. Service? Can be best described by the receptionist/waiter bringing in a dish, walking directly past the utensils and then pointing back to them and telling the customer to fetch them yourself. Two hours later, you have the opportunity to sit down next to your food remains as nobody bothered to collect them away. Several tables were loaded with leftovers from hours back. Yuck. This place is at best a low-end motel, but priced as it would be a fancier hotel.

Our visit experience was a bit strange. Sunday morning at breakfast boiled and scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, rice pies and porridge was served along with bread, cheese, ham, tomato, cucumber and salad and so on was served. Monday morning we were only customers and breakfast included toast but no toaster, other bred was not fresh so it would have needed toasting as well. Coffee maker was ready to put on but coffee wasn’t done. Ham, cheese, tomato and cucumber was wrapped in plastic in a fridge, no warm dishes was served. Quality difference between breakfasts was astonishing. Room was all right in it’s price range.

Be careful this is not hotel 5* this hotel 3* with one reception with ILVESLINNA hotel. They do wooden fence 5 meter from road and build 1 Igloo. What you see - only wooden fence! No lunch! No dinner! We pay 500€/per night for live in bed place! In igloo glass broken, on the ceiling a web! Mini bar on the photo, fridge on photo. I want go from here immediately!

The hotel is not that cheap, but the service they offer is really ''cheap cheap cheap'' stile. Rooms and infrastructure are way below standard for a 3* hotel, the service is a real deception. It would seem that staff think ''you got a room, didn't you? be happy with it and don't expect much else''. They don't even clean the rooms and fix the beds between the 1st and the 2nd night! Staff hardly understand and speak EN. Do you remember the legendary efficency of Northern Europe countries? A legend, indeed!

Marketed as overlooking a lake it sort of does but there is a drive way and trees first and only on one side and not visible from the igloo. The other is a hotel and road. Street lights shine into the room right at eye level when in bed. You can see completely inside from the road. Also if you do go take your own pillow. On the plus side it had its own sauna.
