The breakfast buffet was also a great way...

The hotel is a great base for exploring Lapland by way of organised tours either side of the hotel or making your own itinerary by way of bus 50 yards away and a short ten minute walk to main bus and train station. The rooms were warm and very comfortable the staff were extremely professional,attentive and the breakfast was exceptional...

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.
