“Great location and excellent value for money!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2013

I had a week break in Saariselkä during 2nd week of Januray and decided to stay at Saariselkä Inn as it was relatively cheaper than other places near by. Since the price was considerably low, I did not expect much from this place to offer; however, what a surprise! It was far better than I imagined. The check-in time is usually 16:00, however the staff were kind enough to check me in at 10:00 am at no additional cost plus let me have the breakfast which I was not suppose to have until next morning. Very friendly environment, nice staff and a cozy bar with their own vodkas and beers. Great location to book all kinds of safaris and skii rental shops are within a minute walk. The skii bus (it cost 5e per whole day, but limited services- check out the time table) stops just in front of Saariselka Inn at regular interval. Cozy sauna opens from 16:00 to 20:00 (but actually they let it open until midnight :)). Good restaurants and the super market is within 200m distance. One can easily hike to the Kaunispää hill top in 1 hour from this place (take the sledge route) and see the awesome Aurora Borealis :) (I saw a spectacular display of Auroras from the Kaunispää hill top on the 14th Jan night at about 21:00 and it lasted for 1 hour)

All in all it is a very good place to stay! If you are traveling solo, this is the only place to go as it is way cheaper than other places in Saariselkä!

PS: The bar man said that they accept Lappish gold from local customers instead of money for their drinks. Felt like I was in BC era :) And, Oh yes, they are open all over the year from 10:00 am till 01:00 am.

1. Value for money
2. Great location
3. Cozy beds
4. Friendly environment
5. Nice sauna


1. Breakfast is a bit late (10:00 am). So, if you are flying back home early in the morning, you are most likely to miss the breakfast for that day.

2. No fridge in the room...

3. Nothing else to say bad about this place.

Happy Holidays!
