Staff were not helpful. We were delayed through no fault of our own (our flight from London to rovaneimi). We let the staff know in advance that we will arrive late but they still went home and didn't wait for us to arrive. When we arrived at around midnight the hotel was closed and locked we almost had to spend the night in -30 degrees in the car! As hotel staff went home leaving the key in the igloo which we couldn't find in the dark in the woods!I ended up googling other hotels in the town but there aren't any apart from a campsite which I found the number for and a nice lady from the campsite 2 miles down the road managed to help us. Very disappointing when you spend 250euros for a nights stay which we spent around 6 hours in! When I complained in the morning the staff acted

Hotel was built in the 80's but has been refurbished to some extend. Rooms are tidy and clean. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. We had tasty reindeer stew for lunch. Breakfast is included into room price. Free use of sauna located at the ground floor, no pool. If you are looking for mid priced hotel with good service this is a good choice. Do not expect five star facilities, though! Note: package including tickets to Ranua Zoo is good value for money.

The igloo is nice - though a bit tacky and run down in places. The sauna and fireplace are great, but the location is not. You can literally see the local bus station and main grocery shop from the windows (just) and privacy is a bit limited. With the price we paid for this place, I did expect a bit more. Also, please be warned that extra charge (eur 50 per night I think?) will be taken for using "extra" beds that are in the room anyhow. Quite dodgy I think. Glass igloo was something we wanted to try and it was okay for one night -- but I wont be doing it again.

We stayed two nights at the end our Lapland trip here in this amazing Igloo. This place is located an hour from Rovaniemi airport. This accommodation is made out of big glass windows combined with wooden sauna and also fireplace. What a great idea, the bedroom is really fitted for Aurora Spotting, but during our stay we were not fortunate to see them. We also went to see the Wild Life Zoo, totally recommend

We decided to stay here because they had deals with the zoo. We couldn't book online so my partner ( who is Finnish ) called to try and arrange things for us. She called twice 4 months in advance, and got off the phone saying that she wasn't confident that it would be booked. Anyway we arrived on the day we had booked and sure enough they had no record of us coming. It wasn't a problem though as they had lots of rooms. The rooms were nice and clean and the 4 of us fitted in ok. We were told by the person on reception that the dinner service finished at 5pm so we arrived at 4:30 to be told that lunch had finished and that dinner didn't start until 6pm. So we went for a walk across the road the supermarket and got some snacks. The same person in reception told us that breakfast
