3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean, good size room. Excellent bathrooms - great shower. Nice sauna on top floor. Excellent breakfast spread. Friendly staff. Free wifi. Would recommend. Right opposite shopping centre with supermarket

New hotel rooms are nice, but because of the renovation going on, the restaurant is small and menu very limited. Luckily the hotel is in the centre, so you can visit other restaurants. The hotel is located next to the shopping mall.

Room has VERY noisy air condition. I did not sleep much. After i told staff about it they say that they all ready knowed it. But they give my anyway in this room even i had told i wish quiet room! And i had to pay whole 139 euros from this room. Water boiler was very dirty. i think they have not washed it for months.

Very nice and clean hotel with excellent location! I highly recommed to those, who want to visit Rovaniemis center and do activities there. Very beautiful rooms and nice sauna for visitors. Excellent hotel for couples or friends shopping holidays too!

Whilst being refurbished, hotel boasts excellent central location and easy walking distance to Arktikum and shopping. Highly recommend a visit in Winter with the short days and ample snow and ice. Snow gear purchased/worn in Australia will do. A bit fresh standing outside in -13c for long periods though. Restaurant, both a-la-carte and buffet were excellent value and an abundance of choice of delicious and fresh food. Look forward to heading back. The Santa Express (overnight train ride from Helsinki) arrives early in the morning and the availability of accommodation in the sub-zero temps at that time is minimal. Hotel allowed us to stow bags but we had to entertain ourselves by walking the streets until the shops opened then walk some more until room was ready. Not hotels fault of course.

Visited here at weekend and have to say that good choice if visiting in Rovaniemi. Everything worked well and the city is small so it is easy to walk everywhere in five minutes. Room was clean and quiet, hotel saunas were nice at the top floor. Our room was renovated and decoration was stylish. A chain hotel standards with reasonable pricing also during high season. If thinking to participate safaris etc. staff can help you and several tour offices in the city center are in walking distance even if not in same building.

When I first saw the hotel and realised it was undergoing large scale renovations I was very worried I would be disturbed or inconvenienced by them. Luckily I got a newly renovated room on the other side of the hotel from the renovation works. My room was very nice: everything (including the bathroom) was brand new and in perfect condition. I appreciated the blackout curtains! Breakfast was, as ever at Scandic, good but the breakfast room was small and not that nice (I suppose it is a temporary set up until the renovations are complete). The reception staff were friendly and helpful and I found out for first time that I can use my Scandic friends voucher to 'buy' wine from the minibar - this was good news for me!

Hotel is centrally located and easy to walk to all places of interest. The bus station and activity centers (for aurora hunting, snow mobile rides, etc.) are also walking distance from the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. The complimentary hot water in the lobby was helpful during our winter stay.

This hotel is located between two malls just in the center of Rovaniemi. It is within a walking distance to various shops, bars, restaurants and sights.The hotel itself is very basic and the rooms are somewhat small. We had two adults staying in one room and shared an average sized luggage between us. There was no room to open the luggage on the floor nor anywhere else. Also, the AC was not very efficient and it got a bit too warm in the room. The staff in the hotel are very nice. The restaurant is decent. I had pike-perch and it was good although surprisingly greasy. The breakfast is adequate but lacks local specialities. The fitness room had some basic equipment and it was possible to do a full body workout there. It was only lacking the disinfectant to wipe the equipment clean after workout.

Rovaniemi Scandic prize was a bit above medium, room clean and comfortable, breakfast great, location near all but parking quite tight. Sauna ok and wash room. reception was very much marketing orientated.
