8.0 Excellent
Pros: The jacuzzi and the sauna was truly relaxing. Dinner provided was delicious. However would have loved more options. The location was excellent.
Cons: The spiral stair case leading up to rooms. The bathroom/toilet was on a separate level making it inconvenient during the night to visit the bathroom. Wasn’t able to see Northern Lights.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff are extremely responsive and friendly. The apartment, setting and facilities are beautiful. Location is in a quiet wooded area in Santa Claus Village. Very nice.
Cons: Obtaining a comfortable room temperature was problematic throughout our stay. The guest does not directly control the room temperature. Room temperature can only be adjusted by the staff who must physically come to the unit. The means of communicating with the staff is through a tablet using either a really poor text writing app or a phone connection that never worked properly. The management needs to take a look at their heating and tablet technology. Room temperature and the inconvenient tablet detracted from an otherwise very nice stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: good place and good facility
Cons: check in time 15.00 too late
6.0 Good
Pros: The room is very spacious and clean, small kitchen is well equipped with required tools.
Cons: The receptionist is not really helpful and friendly. There is not clear signage on the path to the resort from santa clause village area.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The rooms were well designed and really cool with views into the forest and the passing reindeer sleighs. The private sauna and hot tub were such a treat. The food was excellent, limited to only 4 choices but they were all delicious and well executed. The staff could not have been more helpful and organised a snowmobile safari, downhill skiing and a northern lights trip (sadly no show). The proximity to Santa Claus village and Snowman World was perfect for the children and it was a lovely touch to have sledges available as the children spent hours playing in the snow and makeshift snow slides. Highly recommended!!
Cons: Breakfast would have been perfect if we could have ordered fresh pancakes and omelettes but they buffet was well stocked.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: heating top glass roof. No snow at all you can see sky when on the bed. warm rooms, tv, good sofa.Everything is clean and bright. Very cool jacuzzi near the house for each apartment separate. There is a very good reception employee Jonas, which can really speak well with clients, answered on all question and he is a very good positive friendly person this is like an example how 5 star hotels should do :). Reception is 5 stars too.
Cons: The worst situation was with waitress (which are russian) , there was a problem with juice which was not in menu, she didnt tell us that it will cost (dinner and breakfast was included in price), and after that she said that it cost 4 euro each, it sounds like cheating.The problem was solved by main manager of hotel and it is nicely, but other waitress (russian too) was really unfriendly! I think for this level hotel and its price it must be professional personal which respect clients. Jacuzzi could be with steam,cause head is freezing while ambient temperature is -5 or more. Smoke form sauna sometimes goes on 2nd floor room(depends on wind i think)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Awesome setting above Santa’s village so the best of all Lapland has to offers. Stay and play ! We loved the sauna and the out door spa . Easy walk hotel restaurant and the breakfast offering has all catered for . Also easy walk to Santa village with all the attractions and restaurants ,so great place to stay all round
Cons: Nothing - no complaint
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beds were comfortable, the ambiance was just right, plenty of room for 4 people. Nice hot tub and sauna for each igloo
Cons: One of the front desk women wasn’t too friendly and we didn’t see the northern lights from the room due to weather
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The apartment. Very clean. Modern. Loved sauna and jacuzzi. Great location quiet and peaceful yet so close to all the activities.
Cons: For 4 in a room it’s a little low on storage/hanging space. The sleeper couch was comfortable. Felt for price they could include the Snow man world entry for Glass resort guests. Staff were not used to being busy and wait for check in/bags/ dinner service slow. Xmas dinner was a let down after lovely dinner on first night. Santa showed up which was a very nice touch. Overall I would recommend- it’s truly a special place to spend Christmas.

10.0 Excellent

9.0 Excellent
Pros: While it says hostel, the room was basically a hotel room. Very comfortable. We also had to leave very early in the morning, and the staff put together a very nice breakfast for us (missing spoons for the yogurt, but otherwise great).
Cons: The parking garage was very tight, and the door to exit went down very quickly. There was no soap in the bathroom.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The place was very clean.
Cons: There was so much noise throughout the night and early morning.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: I didn't have many exprience staying in dorm before, but I enjoyed this time at the hostel. Everything is well organized and very clean. We made our dinner at the shared kitchen, spent time in the comfortable living room, no trouble when using shower and toilet. Also the free sauna is a bonus after a night train and early morning icebreaker adventure in kemi. Second moring, we had breakfast at the cafe which is worth and very delicious. The location is actually very convenient, when we found out the santa express station is just several meters walk. We came by taxi though, should have contacted the hostel for information in advance. The staff is very helpful.
Cons: Nothing. It was fully booked during our stay. I was hoping to book a private twin room...
7.0 Good
Pros: Excellent accommodation in every respect, cant go wrong staying there. Location very good for city, Santa Village and airport transfers as bus stops in front of the hotel.
Cons: Somehow couldnt jell with the staff, found them cold and distant, it wasnt coming from the heart with passion.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice staff, good transfer service, nice cottage with private sauna
7.5 Good
Pros: Rooms large and spotlessly clean. Modern facilities and loved the 2 Tv's.
Cons: This resort needs to supply a shuttle service to the village. It was a long way to walk on very slippery ice. Given the tarrif for the was so high for the superior suites and they are located so far from the main area and breakfast I believe a shuttle service should be provided. Also a mini bar with snacks and drinks should be provided with a security deposit.
7.9 Good
Pros: Location Activities
Cons: Limited food options for breakfast
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fabulous wonderland location and very comfortable rooms - staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly
Cons: The breakfast buffet
6.7 Good
Pros: Staff were friendly and the location was excellent but that’s all I can say
Cons: Far far far to expensive and not very magical. It felt mucky and all the buildings were intermingled with coaches and car parks. Not the magic Xmas experience I was expecting apart from at night when the lights made it seem far prettier. Also the a lot of the visitors were rude and unfriendly. It’s something you need to bear in mind if you get stressed by that kind of thing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Santa Claus Holiday Village it’s very good hotel, big rooms with sauna in bathroom, big bathroom, cleaner and comfortable rooms. Breakfast tasty, 4-5 different restaurants in the village for lunch and dinner. And so many activities for babies: snowmobiles, huski riders, reindeer, big snow complex ice bar, ice restaurant, ice slide. Santa Clause house and misis Santa house. Elves house. Fazer candy shop. If you come here you will no need go by car other place for activities. All the best in walking distance. In this village 3-4 different hotels.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Design of hotel and rooms in particular is amazing. Also, food at hotel restaurant is probably the best that we had during our stay in this area. It’s less than 5min drive from Santa’s Village.
Cons: No flexibility for early check in or late check out. I understand that during the high season hotel is fully booked, but gap between 11:00-16:00 is just too big. Also, room temperature cannot be regulated within the room, instead you have to contact front desk every time you feel cold/warm. It’s simply inconvenient. Lobby might be bigger, there is literally 6 sitting places. There is no common area for relaxation such as sauna, spa etc. Overall, great experience due to the very design of the hotel, but for the money you are paying you just expect a bit more.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The local Santa express bus is close to take you into town.
Cons: I have to say value for money isn’t great at this hotel. We were very disappointed with the accommodation for the price we paid. All the photos online show the rooms in the middle of a lovely forest. Our room looked into a car park. Very small pokey rooms to move around in. Very uncomfortable pillows. Hot water only lasted 40 mins. There were no facilities other than the restaurant. The accommodation was Very close to the highway.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The cozy nests and views
Cons: Difficult to communicate with guest services as response is not as quick as you would expect from a pricy hotel
3.0 Mediocre
Cons: The village overlooks a parking lot and is absolutely not as it appears in the photos in the middle of the nature.. the room are very small for the price paid. The new year's Eve dinner was a mockery They split a banal appetizer over 4 courses. No children's menu and we got up hungry to spend the amount of 100 euros each.. :((

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hostess was the homey, cheerful, and independent house manager. The large variety of Continental breakfast was excellent and every selection looked deliberately stylish. The Finnish pancake she provided with us are all delicious. Every corner of the room was clean and dustless. Also it was nice to offer us two rides. The Lapland reindeer dog was a cute girl. She reminded us of our grandmother. I felt like I was homestaying with her family.
Cons: I liked everything. I could not wish for more.

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.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Check in and check out was smooth. There were some Board games that can be borrowed free of charge. Parking spot was plenty and the location is so close to the city.
Cons: The size of our chalet was very small. It is said for 5 people, however it was already super uncomfortable for the 4 of us to maneuver. Since we are bringing big luggages with us , we had to squeeze our luggages all over the place just so that we could open our luggages. Another thing, our bathroom separator were not able to be closed completely so water flowed all over the place.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Our holidays in Lapland took a great turn coming to the chalet. The check in personnel was superb, they gave us entrance to the chalet well before check-in time so that we could drop our bags en route to Santa's village. Really friendly personnel and lovely staff. Breakfast plentiful but not too much to our taste. Few things in the chalet could have done with better maintenance/improvement (i.e. screws to be fixed on baby gate on top of the stairs, etc.), but overall we loved it. Sauna was in perfect conditions, beds comfortable and chalet very warm once back from a day out. We definitely recommend it, it was a great stay.
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!

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

Pros: Delicious breakfast and lovely staff. Big room with everything you need in it.

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

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Clean, comfortable and convenient to a lot of places. central location
5.8 Okay
Pros: Good location in the center of the town
Cons: Breakfast was included but you have to pay extra 5 ! Euro for sunny side eggs? Room was called suite (for me 2 separate rooms) but was actually only a junior suite ( one bigger room) but totally overpriced with 900.- Euro !!!! per night
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great and cozy interior. Beautiful rooms. Nice breakfast. Free parking. Very friendly personal, especially thanks for Ekaterina, she was nice and helpful.
Cons: I have a very sensitive sleep. When I was making my reservation, I put a special request to have a quit room, but it was very very noisy during the night, because our room was located near to the main road, even the ear plugs didn’t help, I could not sleep for 3 nights :( The windows didn’t reduce the noise and moreover we heard the neighbors very well all night. The hotel claims to be a soundproof, but it’s completely not try. Also , there was only one small cabinet for clothes, what was completely not enough to locate even the small part of our clothes. I will highly recommend this hotel, but not for a good sleep.

Pros: LOVED THIS HOTEL. Amazing breakfast buffet! best I've had. Great rooms. The beds were the most comfortable we had on our 3 weeks in Europe. Pillows and bed really comfy. Staff were very helpful and nice. atmosphere was cosy and it had gym and sauna. Santa express bus was just across the road from the hotel and most tour companies a short walk into town. Would recommend you stay here.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice staff, good transfer service, nice cottage with private sauna
7.5 Good
Pros: Rooms large and spotlessly clean. Modern facilities and loved the 2 Tv's.
Cons: This resort needs to supply a shuttle service to the village. It was a long way to walk on very slippery ice. Given the tarrif for the was so high for the superior suites and they are located so far from the main area and breakfast I believe a shuttle service should be provided. Also a mini bar with snacks and drinks should be provided with a security deposit.
7.9 Good
Pros: Location Activities

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fabulous wonderland location and very comfortable rooms - staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly
Cons: The breakfast buffet
6.7 Good
Pros: Staff were friendly and the location was excellent but that’s all I can say
Cons: Far far far to expensive and not very magical. It felt mucky and all the buildings were intermingled with coaches and car parks. Not the magic Xmas experience I was expecting apart from at night when the lights made it seem far prettier. Also the a lot of the visitors were rude and unfriendly. It’s something you need to bear in mind if you get stressed by that kind of thing

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The jacuzzi and the sauna was truly relaxing. Dinner provided was delicious. However would have loved more options. The location was excellent.
Cons: The spiral stair case leading up to rooms. The bathroom/toilet was on a separate level making it inconvenient during the night to visit the bathroom. Wasn’t able to see Northern Lights.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff are extremely responsive and friendly. The apartment, setting and facilities are beautiful. Location is in a quiet wooded area in Santa Claus Village. Very nice.
Cons: Obtaining a comfortable room temperature was problematic throughout our stay. The guest does not directly control the room temperature. Room temperature can only be adjusted by the staff who must physically come to the unit. The means of communicating with the staff is through a tablet using either a really poor text writing app or a phone connection that never worked properly. The management needs to take a look at their heating and tablet technology. Room temperature and the inconvenient tablet detracted from an otherwise very nice stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: good place and good facility
Cons: check in time 15.00 too late
6.0 Good
Pros: The room is very spacious and clean, small kitchen is well equipped with required tools.
Cons: The receptionist is not really helpful and friendly. There is not clear signage on the path to the resort from santa clause village area.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The rooms were well designed and really cool with views into the forest and the passing reindeer sleighs. The private sauna and hot tub were such a treat. The food was excellent, limited to only 4 choices but they were all delicious and well executed. The staff could not have been more helpful and organised a snowmobile safari, downhill skiing and a northern lights trip (sadly no show). The proximity to Santa Claus village and Snowman World was perfect for the children and it was a lovely touch to have sledges available as the children spent hours playing in the snow and makeshift snow slides. Highly recommended!!
Cons: Breakfast would have been perfect if we could have ordered fresh pancakes and omelettes but they buffet was well stocked.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: heating top glass roof. No snow at all you can see sky when on the bed. warm rooms, tv, good sofa.Everything is clean and bright. Very cool jacuzzi near the house for each apartment separate. There is a very good reception employee Jonas, which can really speak well with clients, answered on all question and he is a very good positive friendly person this is like an example how 5 star hotels should do :). Reception is 5 stars too.
Cons: The worst situation was with waitress (which are russian) , there was a problem with juice which was not in menu, she didnt tell us that it will cost (dinner and breakfast was included in price), and after that she said that it cost 4 euro each, it sounds like cheating.The problem was solved by main manager of hotel and it is nicely, but other waitress (russian too) was really unfriendly! I think for this level hotel and its price it must be professional personal which respect clients. Jacuzzi could be with steam,cause head is freezing while ambient temperature is -5 or more. Smoke form sauna sometimes goes on 2nd floor room(depends on wind i think)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Awesome setting above Santa’s village so the best of all Lapland has to offers. Stay and play ! We loved the sauna and the out door spa . Easy walk hotel restaurant and the breakfast offering has all catered for . Also easy walk to Santa village with all the attractions and restaurants ,so great place to stay all round
Cons: Nothing - no complaint
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beds were comfortable, the ambiance was just right, plenty of room for 4 people. Nice hot tub and sauna for each igloo
Cons: One of the front desk women wasn’t too friendly and we didn’t see the northern lights from the room due to weather
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The apartment. Very clean. Modern. Loved sauna and jacuzzi. Great location quiet and peaceful yet so close to all the activities.
Cons: For 4 in a room it’s a little low on storage/hanging space. The sleeper couch was comfortable. Felt for price they could include the Snow man world entry for Glass resort guests. Staff were not used to being busy and wait for check in/bags/ dinner service slow. Xmas dinner was a let down after lovely dinner on first night. Santa showed up which was a very nice touch. Overall I would recommend- it’s truly a special place to spend Christmas.

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.
6.0 Good
Cons: The breakfast was just horrible for a Buffett.
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.

Pros: location
9.6 Excellent
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. We were especially happy to see Rituals shower toiletries. Even though our room wasn’t big it was very nice, warm and cozy. Big bath and bathrobe made our stay even better after long cold walks.
Cons: Sometimes you can hear check-in and check-out noise. The restaurant downstairs was very disappointing with poor client service and totally burnt potato side for your dish.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: An heavenly bath!
1.0 Poor
Cons: 1 hour to check in because the receptionists first booked and then showed people to their room.At 10am toilet downstairs still was not clean with tissues everywhere for the breakfast people...Was told to use the want a bus that came to hotel but this turned out to be twice the price if the one just around the corner. Very poor advice.. Overall one lousy experience and very poor staff.

Cons: Nothing at all.
4.0 Okay
Cons: We were asked to add another euro30 for the room in additional full payment that we had made to booking.com with the reason we travelled with kids. We asked the staff to store our luggages and they short return to us because of their bad management. But they twisted the story and said that we left our things in reception area and thus they did not know the package belongs to us. They even take a CCTV picture that wasn’t ourselves and claimed that the person was us and left the package in the lobby. Not honest at all.

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.

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.
7.3 Good
Pros: Visiting Santa Claus Village.

Pros: Beautiful location,shopping close, must be beautiful in the summer.Rooms OK maybe a little bit too small
