Ski-Inn RukaTonttu Apartments
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Location really good! Skiing and downhill skiing easy to leave.
A cozy and comfortable place, but the staff indifference.
Breakfast is scarce and many things ran out and completed. Food also stood a long time served. Fine saunas, but a bit of a mess everywhere. Frozen lake did not dare to go, since the path so icy and will not be maintained. I feel like nobody cares anything?
A fine setting, but poor management!

From the start to the end of our stay we loved every minute in this hotel!
Very accomodating owners, beautiful location at a lake, absolutely quite sourrounding, comfortable sauna in the basement and excellent food in the restaurant.

More than a hotel! We were made to feel as though we were old friends. Delicious traditional home cooked meals and scrumptious desserts - even the ice cream is homemade! Ari, the owner and chef, was a mine of information about local customs and culture. He really went out his way to please us with his excellent cooking skills! This hotel is highly recommended!

Amazin’ place to spend an evening after a day full of various activities! I didn’t stay at the hotel myself, but was present at this place every evening.

The 1st great thing abt this place is the sauna and the ice-pool. Granted every hotel/motel in finland has a sauna – but the addition of the ice-pool on Lake Talvijarvi makes an added attraction.
I did give in to this new Finn thing and ended up diving in the ice-pool (or rather wading into it) after heating up at the Sauna, and had run for the sauna again for dear life after the ice-pool dip! In hindsight –it was amazing, though at that time the dip felt like a thousand stabs in the body!

And the next great thing abt this place was the bar and restaurant…with a very friendly bartenders who will regale you local tales and customes and quite a good stock of alcohol and a spread of Finnish cuisine…it definitely brought a nice close to the day.

It is here that I learnt abt hot chocolate with mint liquer, the royal wine () and also tasted a host of Finnish fish from the fried state (vendace) to the raw state (perch). Around 8-8:30 they also light up the fireplace and make it even cosier.

The salmon soup and the reindeer soup comes highly recommended and yes – do end everything with that special hot chocolate with Minttu!

Don’t miss – the view from the balconey which looks over the ice-pool and all across the frozen Talvijarvi…
