Comfortable hotel, short walking distance to the centre of town, wrap up warm though! Good wifi and buffet breakfast. The staff were helpful. We only stayed for one night, the room was ready upon arrival as we arrived from an overnight train from Helsinki. Good wifi.

Overpriced for the service, food & hotel standards. Cramped room. Constantly wet toilet. Lousy service. Weak Wi-Fi. Definitely not hotel standards! Choose any hotel other than Aakenus please if you don't wanna drag yourself back to your room after a great day out. There was a night when I went to the reception to ask if the WiFi is working?...

I stayed here from 20 -24 December 2016. I stayed in room 213. I never review hotels but I am compelled to do this review. The good: The middle aged lady at reception: Extremely helpful and friendly. The bad: The intermittent wi-if. They advertise the hotel with free wi-if. A word of caution - it hardly ever works! We had...

Am writing this from the lobby of the hotel. Stayed here for two nights with my wife and daughter. The hotel is fairly basic and does kind of have a college dorm like feel to it. However, it was very comfortable-my room had two separate sleeping areas with two separate showers and bathrooms. The beds were quite comfortable and the...

If you want a cheap no frills hotel just a few minutes walk to the centre this is ideal. Friendly staff, ok buffet breakfast but poor wifi. I never tried the sauna but there is one on site. 5 mins to town, 15 mins walk to the railway station.

The hotel is about 10mins walk to the city center (faster in summer when it's not as slippery I guess?) which was considered tolerable even on the coldest day of -22 degree Celsius which we experienced in Rovaniemi. It serves a decent breakfast, and is a short walk away from the Arktikum museum where we even managed to catch the...

We are a family of five and often struggle to find somewhere that will accomodate all of us. We stayed in apartment Kokki which is at the back of the hotel, it is a detached cottage. The apartment was extremely clean, modern and very warm. We had a great breakfast with many choices from eggs, porridge, cereal toast etc. Location...

The hotel is a little way from the river or the main area of Rovaniemi, fortunately it is only a small town so this really doesn't matter. The room was nice and warm and we had help carrying our suitcases up the stairs. Breakfast was definitely finnish, which we loved but it might not be for everyone. We wanted to...

We stayed at the Aakenus in early August for 3 nights. The rooms were adequate size with comfortable beds and were spotless. As typical of Finnish hotels, the rooms were warm. The staff were very helpful, the breakfast delightful with lots of vegetarian and vegan options. The location was quiet but convenient to city center, walking paths and the river....
