Scandic Rovaniemi

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here in December 2017. We had a family room and a double room. The rooms are lovely and clean. Just what we expected. It is in a great location. We had a hired car and there was indoor parking for a fee. The breakfast in the morning was very good and there was a great choice. The reception staff are extremely helpful.

Not value for money for a solo traveller. Best part was location and excellent staff. I was offered a room with 2 single beds when I was travelling solo and needed atlesst a queen bed to sleep well. Single bed is super small and not very comfortable. Pillows are elf sized too!!

As a frequent guest at Scandic it was nice to enjoy the things we have become accustomed to. The hotel is conveniently located in the thick of Rovaniemi with lots of good restaurants etc close by. The Staff are always good and always make an effort with our young children. There is a children's playroom at this hotel which is great to let the kids let off some steam before heading out into the cold again. As we stay frequently with Scandic Hotels we are pretty easy to please. However.... The Scandic in Rovaniemi has by far been the most dirty. The hotel lobby, restaurant etc were fine but the room was incredibly dirty. The floor had clearly not been vacuumed in a while. Another guest had dropped a bag of skittles as they were all under the beds and in the corners of the room. The skirting boards were thick with dust. There was a lampshade that was so thick with dust that another guest had written "Clean Me" on it. The beds were made each day but that was it. There were still used mugs from the complementary tea and coffee we had used that the housekeeping just couldn't be bothered to replace. There were coffee rings all over the shelving in the room. I raised these issues and was offered a box of chocolates as compensation. A good location but otherwise a disappointing stay and not something we'd expect from SCANDIC!

Lactated in the city center, shopping mall is nearby, close to the tourist agencies so you can pick one of many interesting trips or Safaris. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is really delicious. I would not recommend a hotel restaurant - it’s cold inside and served meals are on 3 in 1-5 scale.

Cozy and quiet hotel in the heart of Rovaniemi. Central bus station in 10 minutes walk, so you can easily plan your trip to Ranua zoo and go to 09:30 bus. Main Rovaniemi promenade is starting right from the central entrance of the hotel.

Location is perfect, many restaurants nearby & traffic convenience Room size & amenities not value for money Overall staff are friendly and helpful even we were stayed in peak season, good for 1 or 2nights stay

We recently visited Rovaniemi via Helsinki to visit Santa with our children. While in Finland we stayed with the Scandic group in several of their hotels. Overall our experience was very good and our stat was comfortable, warm and very welcoming by the staff. Our stay with the Scandic in Rovaniemi was no different, with staff extremely helpful and friendly. We arrived quite early in the morning and we were provided with a room to change into our snow gear for the day while our bags were stored by the staff while we were out. The location of the hotel is great, very close to the train station and about €25 in a taxi to Santa. It is also right in the centre of Rovaniemi so was perfect for heading out with small legs to get food. Facilities in the hotel are nice, nothing overly complicated but was perfect for myself, my wife and our 2 children. If you are visiting Finland, I would recommend staying in a Scandic Hotel.

It is not luxurious, neither exotic, it does the job The staff is kind and helpful through our stay, even before our arrival The facility is fairly new and everything works perfectly The location is in the town center, excellent

Excellent hotel with clean and well decorated rooms. Very Good breakfast and dinner. Visited with family for new year's fest and everything was perfect. In Rovaniemi center across shopping mall and the pedestrian walkway. One thing only I didn't like is when I paid for a beer and some candy the change I got was not correct they charged me more than what I had to pay but I hope it was a mistake and not a common tactic for foreign visitors.

We spend 5 nights during Christmas 2017 in the Scandic Rovaniemi with the Family (2 adults & 2 Kids). We enjoyed it very much and the Overall Service was excellent. The breakfast fullfilled our Needs more than expected. Very good Hotel to stay with the Family.
