“Breakfast!!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Accommodation in Rovaneimi is generally quite expensive. But the breakfast in this hotel is perfect!! Very delicious smoke salmon and bread. Worth to come again just for the breakfast buffet.

The room is quite small but the bed is comfortable. Good hot shower.

Dear Customers,

I really enjoyed your kind feedback from our hotel and Rovaniemi. You have had nice time here in Arctic Circle - I´am happy:) Spring is coming and we have now much more light outside than few weeks ago! After one month the sun shines all day long, That´s true!!

Do you know what? I like also good bear and great stakes in Bull Bar & Grill

I hope to see you here in Rovaniemi again, why not in wintertime?

Best Regards,

Jaana & City Hotel Staff.

The room was small but it was tidy. The staff was friendly, the breakfast was good, but the wifi sucked. There is a hotel bar, but in the basement there is another bar worth visiting for its good beer selection. Overall, pretty much what you would expect.

Pleasantly surprised with the hotel as good value for money, the room was a good size, clean and tidy. The breakfast is very good, and sets you up for the day. Downstairs bar was a little disappointing with little atmosphere and rude bar staff. Hotel reception staff on the other hand were helpful and polite. We ate in the hotel restaurant one night, the food was good but a limited selection of options to chose from.

The room is small. Once you place two opened luggages on the floor, you have no space to walk. Though we were told free wifi is included, the wifi is extremely slow as the hotel has limited the bandwidth to 516k (sth like that). Staff in general is okay, however, we have met a very unhelpful staff who really upset us. We went to the reception counterto ask for advice on the closest place to see aurora. The receptionist wanted to tell us how to go to the sky hotel, but then another staff with pony tail immediately come n pass a aurora tour leaflet to the receptionist, and hinted her, if not asked, to tell us abt the aurora tour instead to teaching ua how to go ourselves. This incident totally ruined our mood, and the next day we were told by some tourist that they saw beautiful aurora the day before.


Location is good, indeed many choices available and all hotels' locations are as convenient. The restaurant in the hotel monte rosa is nice.

Last point, the toilet was partitioned by a glass wall, which there is no curatin or blind for you to opt.

To conclude, i wont recommend this hotel to others.

Reviewed 21 March 2014

We've stayed at Rovaniemi (City Hotel) for 3 days.
Our room was free before our arriving and it's a reason we had an opportunity for early check-in.
After 22 hours of traveling it was more than useful.
The "payment" for this ability was a cleaning after previous guest (probably, a room was empty for a while), not before our arriving. As the result, there were a lot of dust.
The regular cleaning was pretty qualitative.
We had a sound proof in a room and didn't hear any noises, so we had a good night sleep.
The restaurant of hotel was perfect and staff spoke English, French, Polish, Russian.
The location is just excellent - everything was in a walk distance (buses to Ranua and Santa's Village, Arctic Center, other restaurants and shops).
