Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My dad and I had an amazing stay here for a week in January. Very cold, -24, deep snow. Igloo is amazing, warm, good facilities. Staff fantastic. Restaurant lovely. Short walk to Santas village. 5 mins from airport. Will definitely go back.

Staying in the Santa’s Igloos Arctic Circle was a definitely a bucket list for us. Our igloo was comfortable, cozy and modern. Heated floors, and glass windows were just perfect for chasing the Auroras. Attention to little details were nice! We had an Aurora alert in our room and can send a message the staff through a tablet in our room. Our Igloo had a private outdoor jacuzzi and such a wonderful experience in the snow covered areas with forest view. The location was great, only short walking distance from the magical Santa Claus Village! Very nice and plentiful breakfast served in the main restaurant. Dinner menu including a great choice of Finnish dishes including Elk, Arctic Char and Scampi, all dishes had a nice presentation and were tasty. We had breakfast and 3 course delicious dinner from every day changing menu. There are a lot of activities to do and kids friendly if you’re traveling with the family. Hotel staff is very friendly and they can arrange all the activities for you! Hope to be back next year :)

The igloos are perfect, so cosy and cute and comfortable yet very modern and everything worked perfectly. The glass heating, the aurora alert, the heated floors. It was just spectacular, especially seeing the auroras while staying cosy in bed! What an experience. The food was great both breakfast and dinner.

Nice hotel, was quite busy when we stayed there but it was still quiet and calm in our room. Really enjoyed our time here, the breakfast was good too and the staff helpful whenever we needed anything. The only thing that could be better would be more options for dinner, my young children weren't too excited about the available options.

Hotel staff is friendly and professional. Very small cozy room (best for 2 pax. 3 pax still possible but not ideal) but good enough for a night stay. Snow is everywhere, just right outside the room. Buffet breakfast is great. A little expensive but worth it.

We booked a Premium Igloo with Alcove for 4 adults, the room was ok, nothing luxury. We accepted that hot water only available for about 12 minutes then you have to wait for another 30 minutes for it to heat up, so for a family of 4 we just need to plan ahead. The igloo part of the room was nice and the alcove part was fine but not the bed. One of the bed was a cheap rollaway bed and way too short for an adult. It also has broken springs at the end to form a gap. For over 1000Euro a night I don't think it was too much to ask for a decent bed. To their credit, the staffs were very concerned and tried to change the room or the bed for us but they couldn't. At the end, we had no other choice but to take 1/4 refund. The refund itself cost more than the bed that I had to sleep on so I don't understand why the hotel wanted to cut cost like that. Needless to say, I woke up with a bad back and couldn't enjoy the activity for the next few days (I had to take the bed because I was the shortest one in the group).

We stayed here for one night on our 7 day vacation across Lapland. The check in experience was very poor, there was no room orientation shared upon arrival. We were left to figure how to work the switches, WiFi and the sauna. Needless to say other hotels around the same price point are much better in terms of service and stay experience. The breakfast was probably the worst we’ve eaten across Finland. This property seems very commercial.

Arrived early. Bags stored for us whilst we walked to Santa Claus Village which is only 5 minute walk away. Checked in at 2pm. Luggage brought to our room in a golf style buggy (we hopped in as well). Igloo fantastic. We had a front line Igloo so unobstructed view. Sauna was great. Everything was clean and well appointed. Evening main meal included in our package. Elk fillet was the best meal of our entire stay. Breakfast was also very good. Restaurant nice for breakfast but no different for dinner so didn't feel as special as it could. Luggage collected on the morning of our departure. We didn't see the northern lights as it was cloudy. I would definitely recommend. Yes it's expensive but it's an experience.

We stayed at the igloo for 3 days and 2 nights and we had such a great time there. The igloos are very cozy, clean and well structured. The service provided was good as well. We had breakfast and main course dinner included and the food was delicious. The aurora alerts are amazing, we were lucky enough to be awake by them and we could see the beauty right outside of our igloo. Staff is very friendly and helpful as well. Lots of things to do and very kids friendly place if you’re traveling with the family. We’d definitely come back.

What a great hotel! It's only a short taxi ride from the airport or train station and not that far from Rovaniemi town should you wish to go there. It's also a pretty 10 minute walk to the Santa Claus village. Very comfortable igloos in a beautiful location - nice and warm with everything you need. Good wi-fi too. The private sauna is a bonus. The heated glass roof of the igloo is a great idea , one push of a button melts the snow so you can look up at the stars from your bed, The in room tablet that is provided for hotel information, or to contact reception, also has an alarm that can be set to notify you if the Northern Lights are active. Luckily they were! Very good breakfast and dinner. A good choice of Finnish dishes including Elk, Arctic Char and Veal - all nicely presented and tasty. But what made the stay even more memorable was the team of very friendly, helpful and professional staff. A big shout out especially to the lovely Maria and Hugo - both so kind and polite, and always smiling. You both couldn't do enough to make the 2 night stay more magical than was hoped for - thank you. If you are in Lapland make sure you stay at Santa's Igloos Arctic Circle - you will certainly have a wonderful time.
