I stayed with my husband and 2 sons (aged 9 and 11) at the glass igloo for three nights. We found it very well designed, comfortable and very well warming. We loved to wake up in the view of snowy trees; listening to music by the side of the fireplace. The kids loved to play with the sled in the snow and giggling in the sauna. All the staff was so smiling and hospitable. I strongly recommend the glass igloo to those who plan to have a vacation in Lapland. It has also got the advantage of being just 3 km away from the Wild Life Safari Center.
A small traditional Finnish hotel with nice home-cooking (vegetarian options weren't too great but that's the case in most of Finland). The half-board/full-board and Ranua zoo packages are good value for money and the staff are all very friendly. We stayed there for two nights, including new year's eve when there was a live band and dancing in the restaurant. A good location with a supermarket and a couple of shops/restaurants just across the street and a short drive to the zoo. Lounge with nice decor, newspapers, pool table and a small gift shop. A playroom for kids downstairs, which was otherwise great but very dark, no window and insufficient lighting. Snow sleds available to lend. Our family room was in an annex at the backyard. It was really spacious and clean. Grandfather…
We booked a family package which included a double room with two extra beds and family ticket to Ranua Zoo. The room was quite small and simple but it was good enough for one night. We arrived late in the evening and the reception was warm and welcoming. For kids, there was trampoline outside and a nice playroom. There was some snacks, sandwiches and juices in the bar. The breakfast buffet was quite simple but everyone found something they liked. From Ilveslinna there was only a short drive to Ranua Zoo.
Its a simple place, not fancy in any way. The rooms are small but clean. The staff didnt speak swedish or english but we managed to understand eachother. We were there in july and they had a trampolin outside the restaurant for the kids, wich was popular. The breakfast buffe was not that good, we just had some yoghurt and sandwiches, but thats ok. . The coffea was really good we think ;o)
We stayed at the Hotel Ilveslinna in January 2011, for the purpose of visiting the Ranua Zoo. We booked it hotel online, no issues with response time. We made use of their special offer of 125 Euro for a family (2 adults, 2 children) which also includes free entry to the Ranua Zoo, buffet breakfast and evening sauna. The Zoo entry alone for a family is normally 42 Euro, so we felt this was excellent value for money. (If you make use of the Ranua Zoo special, you must check in at the hotel first in order to get your free voucher.) The family room was simply a double room with spare bedding on the floor. Very cosy with not much room to move around, but quite OK for a short visit where you spend minimal time in the room anyway. We arrived early at 10 am, and the reception staff…
