This is a nice hotel in the centre of town. Santa village is a short bus/taxi ride away (about 10 mins) & you can easily walk to the bus stop (6/7 mins). It has a nice view of the river and the reception area is lovely. Only downsides - the room needs a bit of modernising and was an anticlimax... More

The hotel is situated right by the bus stop which takes you to the Santa Claus village. The receptionists are very nice and very helpful. I would stay there again. The only drawback is, there is no shower cabin in the bathroom, there is a shower, but no cabin, so the whole bathroom is under water after taking a shower.

We just spent 4 nights in this hotel during our trip to Lapland. The rate was adapted as I had booked a room for myself and my 3 kids. The hotel is located by the river, just a few steps away from the main pedestrian area, which means that you get to all main attractions/restaurants within minutes walk. The room... More

This Hotel catered for everyone in our Family. Fabulous experience for each of us especially when Santa arrived on a reindeer drawn sleigh! wow! The buffet dinners were good and different flavours each of the five nights there. Attentative service from wait staff in the restaurant and housekeeping went above & beyond. The view from our room was beautiful, the... More

The hotel is by the river and there is a nice view of the river and bridge from the restaurant. I had a nice view of the street from my room – not that it mattered. The room had 2 single beds, two armchairs, desk chair, desk and tv. Wifi worked well. The bathroom was spacious with a proper shower... More

Small but clean rooms, very tasty breakfast and dinner with home made deserts, nice river view from restaurant. We're visited sauna with pool and fireplace each day - strongly recommended! Close to city center and museum. Also snowmobile trip is started from hotel.

I stopped here on a short business trip in August 2016. The hotel is central for the town and adjacent to a number of others. The airport is only 15 minutes away and a bus departs just after each flight and drops off directly in front of the hotel. (€7 each way for the bus - around €35 each way... More

Hotel was clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location was perfect- great for walks along the river or in to the town for eating and shopping. Great location for doing the many activities that are on offer. Only a 10 minute drive to hotel.
