“Very nice shelter from the winter”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

The Levin Alppitalot means something like "Alpine style lodging in Levi", but of course our Finnish business partners could have told us anything since our knowledge of Finnish has taken years to arrive at three words (thanks, one, two).
The Alppitalot is a quite up-market apartment building where you will share the kitchen, living room, bathrooms, and saunas. Everything is impeccably clean and nicely heated up which is of course essential in the Northern Finnish winter. Our reservation included food and drinks, which means that some nice person comes to the apartment and restocks your fridge with everything you would want for breakfast and pre-/after-dinner snacks.

One word of warning: If you are from continental Europe, you will have no idea what it means to stay this far up North during winter. It is very, very cold, and it is very, very, very dark. Of course you know this in theory and in your head, but to actually be in there is a whole different ballgame.
Our Turkish colleagues fell into depression approximately 15 minutes after arrival, and the Germans and Central/Southern Europeans followed on day 2. Judging by this metric, I must be Turkish as well as I asked myself why on earth I had taken two three-hour flights with Finnair to be in the Winter Wonderland.
As I was not very happy with the location overall, I have to give a lower ranking, but the accomodation is very nice.

In Levi from 26th January to 2nd February 2013.
We have the C303 appartement, just in front of the ski slopes and Zero Point.
K Market is 2/3 minutes by walk.
Restaurants and shops are very close to the appartement.
There are lot of beautiful hotel in Levi but Alppitalot appartements are perfects: good isolation, perfect location, good beds, good sauna, tv, kitchen, ski deposit room and washing machine (in common), and good prices!
We are very happy to stay here.

Room Tip: C303 room is very good: 3° floor, in front of ski slopes, very clean. Only a bad thing: there are tw...

It was altogether an excellent stay, the appartment excedeed my expectations. It was very well located, with excellent views to the main skiing slope and very comfortable and cozy. It had everything we could need to enjoy our 4 days stay at Levi - even plenty of candles to decorate our table while having dinner!
Good internet connections, comfortable beds, good kitchen equipment, convenient dishwasher machine, coffeee machine, etc Nice bathroom and incredible saune.I would certainly use the same appartments if I happen to go again to Levi andwould therefore recommend them to anyone going there, very good value for yuor money.
I would only recommend you to read well the instructions they send you before you arrive there and contact them 3 days before you arrive, it will save you time and efforts, and make your stay even more pleasant.

Room Tip: If possible, make sure it has good views to the main slope - room C303 was great.
