Scandic Rovaniemi

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

The property is located literally to walking distance of everything else in the city . From activity selling outlets to shopping supermarket restaurants and McDonalds everyone is around . The rooms are small and are not having good daily service .There are no toiletries in the room and not even water bottle that every guest needs and must be supplied with for this class of hotel charging quite a lot . The breakfast has nordic food options and isn't much to write about . One can reach the hotel from airport by shuttle bus at Euro 7 each . The staff is helppful in calling for taxis and or other information but it seems they are understaffed as our rooms were not cleaned even at 4 p.m. when we returned from excursion . There is a common ironing room and sauna facilities for guest in the hotel .

The hotel is 2 to 5 minutes walk from 2 shopping malls and supermarket. The mall are medium scale but everything is accessible for various items such as shoes, clothes, food etc. The hotel rooms are of european standards. The room is clean and with sufficient hot water. The staff was great and accommodating. The breakfast has good choices of hot and cold dishes with a sufficient salad bar. Dessert or fruit choices were however lacking. We had dinner at the hotel resto and the land dish and salmon was good.

The hotel is very well situated in the center of Rovaniemi. There is a shopping center, just next to the hotel. All the restaurants and shops of Rovaniemi are very close (walking distance).The rooms are clean and practical, although looking a bit old fashioned. There is lots of choice at the breakfast buffet. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The room was very large for me, warm and nice in the middle of the cold winter. Very tasty breakfast with lots of choice. The stuff is friendly, though they didn't let me enter the room very early at the morning when I just came via overnight train. I had to leave my luggage at the hotel's storage room and travel until checkin time.

Close to food and lots of the safaris, VERY helpful and friendly staff. Small rooms but what isn't in Europe? More than a comfortable stay in a great location. Sauna upstairs that I didn't get to use but was told was good. Gift shop downstairs for convenient last minute presents.
