Pros: Very warm, clean and comfortable.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect, initially we booked staying in the city. Found out you don’t need to go out unless you want to explore or have lunch/dinner. Managed to catch the aurora twice in the village. They even provide airport transfer for free...

10,0 Excellent

Cons: Please, a small grochery would be very useful...
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Room was extremely nice and comfortable for 2 people. The shuttle to and from the airport is very convenient and they go out of their way to take your bags to and from your room for you. Breakfast buffet is good with enough variety. Limited dinner options but overall not bad. Enough things to do for a few days within the village but if you don’t have young kids, 2 days is plenty. Staff is very accommodating and helpful with booking activities.
Cons: Only a small complaint but the lunch buffet at the restaurant hall was subpar and they don’t replenish the food so if you get there towards the end you won’t have much to choose from.

9,6 Excellent

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing chalets with excellent service and location. We loved it!
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Gorgeous chalets, and amazing choice at breakfast including a make your own waffle station! We didn’t eat dinner there but the menus for the al a carte looked amazing. It was less than a ten minute taxi ride into town and for 6 of us in a mini van this cost €20-25 each time. The ski resort was a two minute walk from the door of our chalet and although it was a very small resort it was great for our friends who were complete beginners. Would highly recommend and will hopefully be visiting again as soon as we can.
Cons: The chalets were split in two so you didn’t have a whole one to yourself. While this wasn’t too much of an issue it did make the chalet slightly cramped and extremely hot- especially at night (although we probably didn’t work out the thermostat very well). There was no oven but we made use of the hob and made chilli and a pasta dish on the nights we weren’t eating out.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Cosy and warm chalets (tested during -25 outside). Super comfy beds. Sauna was easy to use and it was a pleasure to relax in it after intensive outdoor activities throughout the day. Ski resort is only few steps away. Good breakfast and nice breakfast area. Would definitely come back again!
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was fine but same everyday. Great view of lake. Convenience to ski activities.
Cons: Limited to types of eggs cooked. Omelette or fried eggs were not catered for from our experience. Carrying large suitcases to your unit in the snow from reception.
6,7 Good
Pros: Right next ski field, great for those who wish to ski. Chalet is near river and the view was really nice. Sauna in room and so very convenient.
Cons: Breakfast was provided but had very limited choice. Chalet was quite small and didn’t have much family space. Kitchen was also small.

Pros: The location is perfect to walk around the town and visit main sightseeings of Rovaniemi. The staff was very helpful and explained main things during our stay.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel location was great. It was close to restaurants and two shopping malls. Bus driver which was going to Santa Claus village was coming to reception area to collect the customers with a big plate on time. Taxi stop was the cross side of the hotel. Arktikum was the walking distance we walked with our 11 years old son. Breakfast was excellent. Hotel staff was extremely helpful. Room was clean and big enough. The bathroom was big than I thought.
Cons: Nothing
10,0 Excellent

Cons: it is hard to remember something I didn't like, but I remember I didn't drink anything from the bar because I didn't knew how much they will charge me, if there have been a list of prices it would have been much easy to decide.
8,0 Excellent

Cons: The breakfast to choose from was limited.
7,0 Good
Pros: Newly renovated, roommand services matched description/expectation, very clean, service efficient
Cons: Room smelled very strongly of aftershave,a smell that couldn't get rid off as there were no windows to outside. If I had travelled for leisure I would have very disappointed to have a room overlooking inside of the hotel. Overpriced, as all the accommodation much in Rovaniemi seemed to be

8,0 Excellent
Pros: We really enjoyed our stay at the Scandic Rovaniemi City Hotel! Our room was really comfortable and had all of the amenities we could ever need, including a sauna. Also, the breakfast was quite delicious!
Cons: The hotel's luggage storage room is tiny! We were hoping to store our luggage for a few hours (and had checked ahead to ensure this was okay), but were unable to do so as their storage room was PACKED. This ended up being quite inconvenient as we had to look for an alternate solution, thereby missing our tour.

8,8 Excellent
Pros: Nice old style log cabins for up to six people (in one room albeit) with fireplace, kitchenette and personal sauna! Parking in front of the cabin and decent breakfast at the main building. Nice for an extended stay. Many activities in both summer and winter.
Cons: No tea/coffee in the cabins. Adjacent spa should really not be titled as such, as it is only a tiny public swimming pool.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great for famillies.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: The facilities overall are excellent. You have everything you need, including a sauna in your room, yey! You also have a nice dryer in the room which turned super handy! You also have a very nice spa area and a gym and a myriad of options we couldn't do because of time, pity but we will come again!
Cons: The only but I have is that there are quite a few door frames on the floors with which we were bumping into all the time. They are signposted but it is not enough. We saw more people struggling.
7,0 Good
Pros: I liked a lot the location between trees and forest. The breakfast was big and the room was really nice. I liked that it was a very big and friendly place, great for kids!!
Cons: I had to take taxi to get there, and that was expensive. But there where some safaris that picked us up from the hotel. It was snowing so I found difficult to see where was the walking path, there should be more clear signs.
2,8 Mediocre
Pros: I like that we stayed at the Olympic Training Center
Cons: Receptionists weren't very friendly (some even rude). Rooms look like college dorm rooms (and smell like them too) Showers are grungy, smelly, dirty and made me wish I didn't have to shower just to avoid touching anything. (Showers in Uganda are cleaner than this!)
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Large clean room, more of an apartment really. Very spacious, well equipped. Enjoyed using the adjacent sports centre.
Cons: Breakfast buffet is adequate, but more like a canteen than a cafeteria. 1.5km walk to the town centre.
4,2 Okay
Pros: This hotel was an amazing experience, it took me back to my youth when we went on school trips during holidays. Since then I travelled all over the world from super cheap one dollar a night in India to very Luxuary 800 dollar a night leading hotel of the world .But I never slept in a 220 dollar a night youth hostel. In Helsinki I stayed in the super nice Radisson plaza hotel which was cheaper! Needless to say that I do not recommend this hostel
Cons: I will spare you a rather long list
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Delicious breakfast and lovely staff. Big room with everything you need in it.
Cons: We couldn’t make us of the kidsplay area after 4pm.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: The room was a great size for us two adults and two teens. The beds were comfortable while we had to ask for some extra pillows everything was very comfortable. There is a wet close dryer where you can hang snow pants and stuff to dry over night- really this hotel was laid back and fun and it was perfect for the type of stay we were doing.
Cons: The buffet food here was terrible. The grill in the hotel closes when the buffet is out so we ended up walking to a pizza/grill place attached to the supermarket. There are walking paths along side the road that go under an over pass and were a hill so my teens sled down the side walk to the store. But the food was so bad it was cheap but McDonald's would have been better. One night there was a special buffet and we didn't realize- there isn't any organization tons of people with tour groups going in and out and grabbing food no one manning the door to host or the cash register. We looked like fish out of water since we didn't pre-pay dinners with any type of tour group, we had to hunt down someone to pay and when we did the food was about 28 euro a person not 11 euro. It was our first night and we were a bit bitter about that. We got the 11 euro buffet the next night then for the rest of our stay we ate out at other restaurants. I can't emphasize how bad the food was, thing usa school cafeteria food circa 1980's.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful family room and close proximity to town centre and santapark

Cons: Lack of room temperature control
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Very good and pleasant environment, nice rooms and terrace. Good breakfast.
Cons: Cleaning ladies could do their job better, however it was still ok.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Waking up to beautiful forest view from room, being able to catch aurora (only if you are lucky) in the dark forested area. Enjoying private sauna in your own room. Christmas dinner buffet, although it was the only dining option, was delicious with great service. They do menu rotation so it’s varied even if you dine for consecutive nights.
Cons: Hotel management should have set up arrangements with Ounasvaara ski resort to facilitate guests who plan to ski. Many guests had to call for taxi in order to get to the base of slope, but in fact the easiest route was simply via the slope! Front desk was apathetic, they simply suggested either walking down the slopes (which is unsafe) or wait for the chair lift to work (which operates ONLY if there is enough skiers). It’s a shame that such a nice hotel failed to look into ‘total experience’ for their guests.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: The scenery from the room and the restaurant were beautiful.
Cons: No elevators and long hallways with multiple doors made getting baggage to room a task.
5,0 Okay
Pros: The room was nice , very comfortable bed and the view was amazing .
Cons: There are a lot of things to improve -there was no mini bar in the room ( if you don’t have any water at 2 in the morning there is personal at the bar but they don’t sell you anything ) -no telephone in the room -no room service -no restaurant where you can eat lunch -the staff is not very friendly -not very clean , the toilets from the reception are disgusting -in the room also during your stay they don’t clean the bathroom properly There is no 5 stars hotel ,maybe 4.and the price for the room is too high comparing with what they are offering
10,0 Excellent
Pros: isolated great location just on the slopes, stuff very cool and nice, sauna in the room great, clean, well designed
Cons: the ikea black cheap brush next to the toilet...

6,7 Good
Pros: Nice staff, close to center, good breakfast and dinner.
Cons: The was no wardrobe in the room - had to keep things in suitcases for the whole week, which was extremely uncomfortable. Shower was tiny, and the water was flowing directly into the middle of bathroom, so the floor was all wet after somebody took a shower. It was a bit cold in the room (December time), but there were no extra blankets available. Overall, the hotel was very expensive during December time, but the facilities were not at all worth the money paid for the room.
8,3 Excellent

A historic hotel in the centre of Rovaniemi. Here you can relax in the beautiful scenery of the Kemijoki river and enjoy versatile services.
7,5 Good
Cons: The Christmas dinner was 70e and it was just terrible!! Not worse the price at all!! I would have paid only 15!!!
8,0 Excellent
Pros: So So
5,0 Okay
Pros: My time in Rovaniemi was marred by a snowmobile accident, so we needed a place to stay and recuperate in the city a day before our flight out, hence this was a last minute urgent booking that reflected in the astronomical price we paid for our bog standard room close to Christmas. So first, things that we liked. The location. Sandic Pohjanhovi is located right next to the river and made for a lovely walk on the snow covered walking paths adjacent to the water, overlooking the bridge. It's also central and easy to get to malls, supermarkets and pharmacies. Free parking. And while I couldn't make it to breakfast because of my injury, my other half did and told me it was adequate. We slept well. The beds were comfortable and the room heated up nicely. Good bathroom.
Cons: The things we didn't care for. While our room was nothing special, it was aging in places but comfortable enough. However for the price we paid, certain things definitely bothered us. When we entered our room for the first time, it was clear housekeeping had done a weirdly incomplete job of cleaning the room after the previous occupants. There was a used quilt and pillow covered with hair, lying on a chair. We called the reception and informed them and somebody immediately came to take it away and apologize. This was appreciated but from there on, we felt very 'skeevy' about the room. We later went on to find some leftover packaging, a shampoo bottle and a recent crusty stain on the couch (pretty obviously left by the previous occupants and not taken care of by housekeeping). We called reception to ask if they had a kettle we could use and were informed we could rent one for 15 euros. Absurd. To be honest, all this wouldn't have bothered us if the cost of the room reflected the standard of it. Having paid more than a thousand dirhams (USD 300), we were disappointed by what we got in return.
7,0 Good
Pros: Hotel is basic and a little dated but clean and tidy. Well located with a main bus stop right outside the back entrance. Easy to get around the town on foot as well. Breakfast was good although they do start removing items before the official closing time, so don't show up with 5 minuets to spare as you'll go hungry.
10,0 Excellent

3,0 Mediocre
Pros: The breakfest was fair.
Cons: I originaly booked for 7 night but cancel the reservation in the first day and finly stayed in the hotel only one night. This is a very old hotel with a very old look from the inside. The rooms I got were small and transmit tiredness and absolotly not a place I wish to stay. The price was not competitive in compare to other hotel in the same town. I must say that other people stayed in the hotel were not so sensitive to the look of the hotel and said it is satisfied them. One of the reasons I choosed this hotel is the swimming pool that was not useful for me and my children because the low temperature of the water.

Cons: The bed and pillows were a bit small.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The location of the hotel was just 2 minutes stroll to the city centre and in a resonably quiet area. The hotel is a bit ‘old’ style (70s?) , we liked the atmosphere - it was interestimng :-), and it was clean & comfortable. The staff were friendly , polite and obliging in general. The room size was very good , we booked a family room with an additional bed. Breakfast selection was good and had a good variety. If we ever return to Rovaniemi , we would stay here again.
Cons: We would have liked a bigger bathroom but aside from that we really enjoyed our stay here.
5,0 Okay
Pros: All staff we met were friendly and helpful. Thank you everybody, u doing good quality work, service is good. The problem is not the staff, maybe the investors who forgot the refurbishment budget.
Cons: The glory days of this hotel are long gone.It reflects the feel of the past, not due to intention in design of the decor but simply the place needs refurbishment. It looks tiered, from the furniture, fittings, walls, carpets, lounge, breakfast area, its all dark and heavy. Remember this hotel is not exactly marketed as cheap accommodation, that would be a different story.

3,8 Mediocre

2,0 Mediocre
Pros: Very nice Chinese restaurant downstairs.. that's about all it's got going for it
Cons: Well we did not realise you needed to check in half a mile from the room ... Lot of money and nothing more than a hostel.... we should have found the local YMCA for the night.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Very well located in the city centre, close to the mall, cafes and restaurants. Also a walking distance from the Santa’s Express bus. The room and the shower was very warm (important during the winter months).
Cons: I was in the hotel for 3 nights and no housekeeping went to my room during the whole period! Also I found the staff from Santa Claus hotel very unprepared to answer my questions about the city (local bus, timings, tours) simple question in such a tourist place. There isn’t any way of communication with Santa Claus hotel once you’re in Rudolf. No phone in the room, no staff in the Rudolf hotel... so if you need something you have to go all the way to Santa Claus hotel.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Good location, private bathrooms per room is nice. Like hotel. Comfortable beds
Cons: Had to pay extra because two people In two bed room. Did not know this until we arrived. Why? I could just say it's only me and bring in a person for the other bed and not pay the extra.
6,7 Good
Pros: We found the heater in room was not working but having a spare and took time to heat. The shower room is good and warm. Location too far and too cold to walk. Sadly we have to catch the expensive taxi to Santa C hotel to pick up the key and check i, also to come back for breakfast. These needed taxi again. Anyway breakfast is worth for money.
6,3 Good
Pros: Free parking, 5/10 mins walk to center

Cons: They are big cheat unfriendly very rude
6,0 Good
Pros: The amazing was amazing, there was a very big buffet at a very logical price of 11,50 euros per person. The bfast selection has everything, eggs, croissants, waffles, fruits, toast, juices, amazing meatballs etc. The atmosphere there is really cozy and nice by sitting next to the windows and watch the snow. The guy at the reception was also very kind that he let us leave our luggage at no cost.
Cons: The rooms could have been better, closer to the main building and a bit more spacious. If you live in the main building of the hotel then everything is fine.

9,6 Excellent
Pros: Room was extremely nice and comfortable for 2 people. The shuttle to and from the airport is very convenient and they go out of their way to take your bags to and from your room for you. Breakfast buffet is good with enough variety. Limited dinner options but overall not bad. Enough things to do for a few days within the village but if you don’t have young kids, 2 days is plenty. Staff is very accommodating and helpful with booking activities.
Cons: Only a small complaint but the lunch buffet at the restaurant hall was subpar and they don’t replenish the food so if you get there towards the end you won’t have much to choose from.

8,8 Excellent
Pros: Nice old style log cabins for up to six people (in one room albeit) with fireplace, kitchenette and personal sauna! Parking in front of the cabin and decent breakfast at the main building. Nice for an extended stay. Many activities in both summer and winter.
Cons: No tea/coffee in the cabins. Adjacent spa should really not be titled as such, as it is only a tiny public swimming pool.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great for famillies.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: The facilities overall are excellent. You have everything you need, including a sauna in your room, yey! You also have a nice dryer in the room which turned super handy! You also have a very nice spa area and a gym and a myriad of options we couldn't do because of time, pity but we will come again!
Cons: The only but I have is that there are quite a few door frames on the floors with which we were bumping into all the time. They are signposted but it is not enough. We saw more people struggling.
7,0 Good
Pros: I liked a lot the location between trees and forest. The breakfast was big and the room was really nice. I liked that it was a very big and friendly place, great for kids!!
Cons: I had to take taxi to get there, and that was expensive. But there where some safaris that picked us up from the hotel. It was snowing so I found difficult to see where was the walking path, there should be more clear signs.
2,8 Mediocre
Pros: I like that we stayed at the Olympic Training Center
Cons: Receptionists weren't very friendly (some even rude). Rooms look like college dorm rooms (and smell like them too) Showers are grungy, smelly, dirty and made me wish I didn't have to shower just to avoid touching anything. (Showers in Uganda are cleaner than this!)
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Large clean room, more of an apartment really. Very spacious, well equipped. Enjoyed using the adjacent sports centre.
Cons: Breakfast buffet is adequate, but more like a canteen than a cafeteria. 1.5km walk to the town centre.
4,2 Okay
Pros: This hotel was an amazing experience, it took me back to my youth when we went on school trips during holidays. Since then I travelled all over the world from super cheap one dollar a night in India to very Luxuary 800 dollar a night leading hotel of the world .But I never slept in a 220 dollar a night youth hostel. In Helsinki I stayed in the super nice Radisson plaza hotel which was cheaper! Needless to say that I do not recommend this hostel
Cons: I will spare you a rather long list
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Delicious breakfast and lovely staff. Big room with everything you need in it.
Cons: We couldn’t make us of the kidsplay area after 4pm.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: The room was a great size for us two adults and two teens. The beds were comfortable while we had to ask for some extra pillows everything was very comfortable. There is a wet close dryer where you can hang snow pants and stuff to dry over night- really this hotel was laid back and fun and it was perfect for the type of stay we were doing.
Cons: The buffet food here was terrible. The grill in the hotel closes when the buffet is out so we ended up walking to a pizza/grill place attached to the supermarket. There are walking paths along side the road that go under an over pass and were a hill so my teens sled down the side walk to the store. But the food was so bad it was cheap but McDonald's would have been better. One night there was a special buffet and we didn't realize- there isn't any organization tons of people with tour groups going in and out and grabbing food no one manning the door to host or the cash register. We looked like fish out of water since we didn't pre-pay dinners with any type of tour group, we had to hunt down someone to pay and when we did the food was about 28 euro a person not 11 euro. It was our first night and we were a bit bitter about that. We got the 11 euro buffet the next night then for the rest of our stay we ate out at other restaurants. I can't emphasize how bad the food was, thing usa school cafeteria food circa 1980's.

Pros: Beautiful family room and close proximity to town centre and santapark

7,0 Good
Pros: Very comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated rooms and common space.
Cons: Some of the staff were not very helpful and came off a bit rude. One tour guide was urinating on the wall in front of the hotel. He was dressed as an elf and no one seemed to tell him anything. The eggs were box eggs and really tasted terrible. While good variety, the breakfast buffet could be better quality.
