The city "centre" is a few minutes walk away and good cafeteria's like choco & deli really near the hotel. Price and quality ratio is good compared to other hotels. Can...

Hotel is located near city centre, and close to river. It is not close to bus/train station if you travel to Rovaniemi from Lapland by bus, luckily the bus driver dropped us right in front of hotel. We had a room at ground floor and there is a public sauna opens 5-9pm, wish they can have it for longer hours...

Nice hotel, clean and warm rooms. Very good breakfast. Transportation from and back to the airport was easy (Finnair has a shuttle) , it takes about 10-15 minutes. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Close to city center and bus stop is just across the street.
