We are looking at going for Christmas 2019. Is it best to do an organised tour or just book hotel and activities like Santa’s Village, Sleigh Ride, Snowmobile, Ice Fishing etc. Do tours run over Christmas. Also, are you best to hire a car?
Is there a smoker's room (terrace, balcony) or smoking in the street?
There is a designated smoking area outide the hotel

Is this a good hotel for two adults two kids aged 3and 9? And is it close to Santa village ?and has it easy access to transport to get to there and also to transport for the airport ?thanks :)
This Is a very nice hotel by the river. Shopping and restaurants are walking distance. Santa village is about 8 km. away. Bus services are walking distance. Lapland travels is located in the same hotel and can make all arrangements however they are expensive. Suggest you hire a self drive car. The airport is about 6 km from he hotel on the same route to Santa village.

"Go for a river view room. Rooms in the main building have a lot of wear and tear."
"I recommend the presidential suite 505 worth of its name"
"Ask a room with river view"
