Arctic City Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel is located in Rovaniemi center, close to a bus and railway station. Very modern hotel, beautiful decor. The room was small but luxurious. Good value for money. The breakfast at this hotel was the best I have ever eaten in a hotel, anywhere in Europe. Fresh food, delicacies from a local bakery, finnish berries and sparling wine, and of course the usual continental and finnish breakfast goodies, delicious!

We stayed here between Christmas and NYE and although the rooms are a little small and the bathroom tiny, the location and restaurant makes up for it. The restaurant is very relaxing and comfortable, food is amazing and very authentic. We enjoyed our stay and I’d recommend this place to anyone visiting the city.

Great option for a mid range hotel in a perfect location to explore the city. Clean, tidy, nice rooms, lovely staff and good food. Has everything you need without the huge price tag. Great for a short stay.

We had the lunch buffet today as part of our tour. It was terrible. The food looked like slosh and mush and everything was over cooked. When we arrived we were not told anything about what the deal was in terms of eating and just sat there without being advised anything by the waiting staff. We finally went to ask and then were told we could have the buffet. When we went back to get more food after the first plate, everything was gone including the dessert. No one told us when it was closing or came round to say that you should get what you need as the buffet will be closing. Poor service and terrible food

We stayed in the cityhotel as part of a 2 day Lapland experience. It was the perfect hotel as it had everything you need. The beds were very comfortable, the shower hot and powerful and it was clean and welcoming. The 12 o'clock check out fitted well with our trip. The reception is modern and classy. The hotel is within reach of everything you could need. The complimentary toiletries were lovely. Yes it can be slightly noisy but we were so tired the comfort of the bed made sure we were rested well. I woudl reccommend.

This hotel is located in the city center of Rovaniemi. You can easily reach every points by walk (restaurants, parks, Markets and so on). The room was very clean and the bathroom big and comfortable. Breakfast was really good and with lots of choice. You can access directly from the hall to “Monte Rose” restaurant. The staff was really kind and available to answer to any question. Suggested, for sure I’ll return back if one day I’ll return to Rovaniemi. Thank You.

Great location, bit difficult to find the hotel in the town though due to no signs or directions in the town. Our room was rather small but cosy, the shower was a bit too small and the toilet was not working well. The hotel restaurant was nice, with some decent meals and nice staff but a bit longer waiting time. Oh, and they do know why they have earplugs on the rooms cause omg the walls are made of paper, we could hear the neighbors talking all night!

You get your money worth here, small room, clean, cosy, warm. If your staying a night or two, perfect hotel. Nice deep bath if you want to soak, good shower options too. Good television, not that you will want to stay in the room, Rovaniemi in Winter is beautiful!

Stayed here one night as had an early flight the next morning. Rooms were pleasant - rather small but like London sizes really. Hotel is very central and near bars and restaurants. There was a bit of street noise at night and as the room was so hot, we had to crack the window open, so was a little disturbing. We had just returned from staying at Holiday Village Gulo Gulo, Rauna so this was quite different - if you want the Lapland experience to to Rauna and stay here for a night or two if want shops, Santa village etc.

I adored this hotel, so smart and nice. Everything in the environments (room, restaurant, entrance..) is so we'll designed. You can feel at home, warm and safe. Very nice the room, with the cute reindeer on the bed. The breakfast is very good with typical Finnish products but also the classic foods for a Continental breakfast.
