Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna Rovaniemi

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The superior twin room was very average, the beds are so narrow they should be provided for children and are not very comfortable. Service is also very slow. The main positive was the breakfast which was very good aside from the coffee.

Good quality hotel with Lappland theme integrated to Nordic design. Rooms are stylish and comfortable. Good service. Location is perfect in the city center. Breakfast was of normal finnish standard. Next time again.

Centrally located. Smallish but comfortable room with comfy bedding. Very good buffet food in the restaurant. Clean well appointed sauna facilities. Good base for visiting Santa Park and Santa’s village.

This hotel was conveniently located in the city center, I stayed there for one night and the room was clean and had the basics. The lighting in the room created a good ambience and complemented to the coziness of the room. The only thing I disliked was the attitude of one of the staff in breakfast who seemed to want to be in a rush to have the guests leave the breakfast area and did not want guests to sit at tables that were already cleaned even though breakfast was still going on. Other than that, stay was fine.

We went for themed room - Arctic Circle theme (other option was Christmas theme). The hotel has convenient indoor parking (extra price), easy to find and close to the centre. Breakfast was decent, a lot of hot and cold options. If you want to use sauna best to check opening times in advance

Correct room ( family 2 adults 1 child) We just used it to sleep because we had full day program. Nice room good beds; cleaning fabulous. Hotel staff very friendly Restaurant nice and good meals Bar comfortable Well sorted breakfast Highly recomand this hotel Straight in the center

The hotel is perfectly located on the edge of town. Just a short walking distance to restaurants, bars and shops. It also just across the road from a bus stop where you can catch buses to Santa Park, Santa Claus village and the airport shuttle. Therefore, if you are travelling without a car it is a perfect choice. The hotel is a modern 4 star hotel with several dining choices. Breakfast was good with lots of choices, including a gluten free section. The rooms are smart, stylish and well equipped. If you fancy a quiet evening in for 12 euros you can watch as many movies as you like for a 24 hour period. Wifi connection is good.

A clean hotel, friendly and efficient service both from hotel and restaurant staff. Good selection for breakfast. Well equipped room and comfortable sleep. Would recommend staying and would be very happy to stay again.

Situated in the heart of Rovaniemi city centre is this gem of a hotel, close to everything especially local tour offices and restaurants. When you’re having to walk in -15 degree weather, you’d like everything to be within reach! I found this hotel to be priced reasonably, breakfast options were great for both savoury and sweet dishes. There are also two restaurants linked to this hotel that both serve great food. Staff are always helpful.

Stayed for 4 nights & would definitely stay here again. Friendly staff at reception and we found all staff in the hotel welcoming & helpful. Modern clean room with kettle, tea, coffee & hot chocolate provided. Mini bar also in room which seemed adequate but we didn't use it so can't comment further. Breakfast was excellent, plenty choice of hot & cold items (eggs, bacon, porridge, fruit, pastries, fresh bread etc etc). Novel juice dispenser attached to an iPad!! We had a fantastic holiday with TUI, well organised with plenty of scope to do your own activities if you wished.
