My husband and I traveled to Finland from Australia for the Christmas and New Years, and as it was our first wedding anniversary, wanted to treat us for an expectedly luxurious igloo hotel. We paid quite a bit for the night (around AU$630), and expected it to be worth it. The igloo itself was quite nice and had well-thought out details. Sauna and bathroom were both really nice and modern. We had a fireplace in the igloo, which we put fire in, very cosy! The bed was made with 3 very low quality pillows and there weren't any extra ones. As it was Sunday when we checked in, there was no staff to call in for assistance. In fact there was absolutely no one around when we arrived on Sunday afternoon just after 5pm. We were given the instructions to get inside, which worked, after…
Hotelli ei vastaa nettisivujen kuvausta. Huoneessa ei ollut ilmastointia ja kylpyhuone oli remontoimaton. Huoneessa oli tunkkainen haju ja puutteellinen ilmanvaihto. Jäänyt ajastaan jälkeen. Harkitsimme aiemmin myös iglua, jota emme onneksi varanneet (sijaitsi hotellin parkkipaikalla ilman minkäänlaista omaa rauhaa). Huoneen äänieristys oli puutteellinen (baarin melu kantautui huoneeseen). Kannattaa ajaa Rovaniemelle hotelliin. Hotel wasn’t as described. There wasn’t any air conditioning in the room and the bathroom was in poor condition. The room smelled stuffy and didn`t have proper ventilation. Hotel seemed outdated. Don’t make the mistake of reserving the igloo (it’s situated in a parking lot with very limited privacy). The soundproofing of the room was insufficient.
Staying at hotel Igloo Lapland was a disappointment from the beginning to end. Igloo was not as advertised (photos highly photoshopped), it is pretty much in a car park in the back yard of a hotel ,a minute away from a supermarket and street lights. Nothing luxurious about this place as the price would suggest. Service was appalling. Run down, dated, drab. Just wish I’d read the reviews before I booked it. Very upsetting as so expensive and meant to be a real treat for my 30th birthday. Ended up spending my time there in tears as was so disappointed. If it is not too late, do not book. Agoda has to step in to try and resolve issues but hotel has not cooperated and will continue to cheat people out of their hard earned money. Serious health and safety risks attached with staying…
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Once inside the ambience was incredible and it was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon! The view at night was spectacular and the northern lights were elegant and gorgeous and we could see them perfectly while laying in bed! The room was cozy and the fireplace was a perfect touch! Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. The igloo has a bit of an odd location behind a car park but it didn’t take away from the experience inside!
The hotel is one of the few feasible options to stay close to the Ranua Zoo. Unfortunately this also means that the competition is not pushing the hotel to renew itself, while the limited demand keeps the pressure high on the prices. The hotel would desperately need a facelift to bring the rooms and common areas to a modern era. The hotel provides all the basic services a traveler needs, but is far behind any major chain hotels on the quality of the offering. While Ranua obviously is not a very busy tourist attraction, it would be difficult to attract more international travelers without a decent hotel offering. I consider the hotel still a decent choice for a one night stay, but could not recommend a longer stay to anyone.
