Recent guest reviews

Big and nice hotel with a perfect location! You can go wherever you want just by walking. There is like two shopping malls, plnety of places to eat and some pedestrian alleys just within a few minutes from the hotel. The rooms are nice and clean(even though they could have been a bit warmer. The pool could ve been a bit warmer too. Anyway we stayed here with my gf for a few days and we really loved our stay. Everyone spoke English perfectly and everyone was very friendly and smiley. The breakfast was very nice too. there were plenty of things to chose from like some amazing home made pancakes that I absolutely adored (anyway the juices could have been better tho)

Well this is part of finnish culture, reindeer stew with mashed potatoes and some lingonberry. If some place on earth its pohjanhovi! Walking distance from central Rovaniemi, heart of lapland! May not feel luxury, but just go to restaurant downstairs and feel it!

Friendly reception staff. Our room was a bit tired and in need of an upgrade. The room was hot and although we could open the window we were kept awake by the noise from guests in the smoking area outside reception until the early hours of the morning. Breakfast was served at a nearby hotel as this hotel's restaurant is being refurbished although we saw no signs of any work going on. Good location for walking along the river and for accessing the town. Good enough but did not quite meet our expectations.

The hotel is a bit worn, but the rooms are comfortable and the staff first-rate. They have a nice sitting area and a wonderful breakfast, albeit at another nearby sister hotel as the restaurant is under reconditioning. The location is close enough to all the major sites and 20 minutes on foot from the train station. Would suggest a room on the river side as the afternoon sun is tough and the street noise a bit problematic.

Big and convenient hotel. Nice and clean room. The reception was very helpful. Spacious shower place. During our two days stay the restaurant was serving a buffet in the evenings. The food was OK but not more. You can take a very nice walk along the waterfront of the river. Wi-Fi is sometimes a bit slow and not password protected. You can use a computer with a connected printer if you need some printouts. No extra charge for our dog.

This hotel is nicely located. The room was comfortable but the hotel is dated. The restaurant was closed for renovations, so a short walk to the Cumulus sister hotel Polar was required for breakfast. The buffet had the usual range you find in Finnish hotels: cold cuts, porridge, bread, bacon, omelette, hard boiled eggs. Note: The Cumulus chain of hotels has recently been bought by the Scandic chain so with any luck the hotel may get a Well overdue overhall/ refurbishment! Wi-Fi kept disappearing.

The Cumulus Resort Pohjanhovi is located close by the river along which one can enjoy a fine stroll. The room was comfortable and clean. In the restaurant we enjoyed the local speciality of reindeer stew. The breakfast buffet was very good. The hotel is perfectly located for a trip to Santa Claus village and polar circle line. The vivid centre of Rovaniemi has fine restaurants and bars. Also close by is the Arktikum museum which is very worthwhile a visit.

The hotel is old (which can also be a good thing), but needs some renovation or at least repairing the defects. The service was ok, nothing special. Free parking and good breakfast. Also the Wi-Fi was fast. Good location, very close to the walking street and great restaurants. Could go again, if the price level stays low.

We have stay a night at this hotel during visiting Rovaniemi. The hotel looks a little bit old, but is very well maintained. The room was comfortable and clean. From the hotel to the McDonald's restaurant and shopping street just 5 to 10 minutes walking distance and from hotel to Arktikum Science Meseum just 15 minutes walking distance. That's very convenient. Reception staff are very friendly and helpful. We also having the buffet dinner during stay, the food was excellent. Breakfast was great with various of choices. Good job to team "Rantasipi Pohjanhovi"

we spent a week there during a tourist group vacation. Rovaniemi is very well situated having within a small radius a lot of wonderful attractions. As I figure the hotel was chosen since it's one of the better ones in the city. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and neat. All the places are very well heated and last but not least the food is delicious. We ate a number of times out but none of the restaurants and other places equaled the meals at the hotel. A minor fall down was the swimming pool, warmed to a temperature of 17 celsius degrees which is quite cold and do not permit to enjoy it.
