Please be careful while booking this hotel. Once we got in front of the door, it turned out the hotel would be closed for the next 2 weeks, although I had confirmed everything with them right before arrival. What's more they had information on their website the hotel would be reopening a few days before we were to arrive! It... More

Room is quite big, clean, spacious and feels very comfortable. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful too. There is a small shopping centre & 24hr supermarket nearby within walking distance for us to get what we needed. Breakfast is good too.

The hotel looks really old and musty - it's in dire need of some refurbishment! The hotel staff is excellent though. Location is pretty good, but Rovaniemi is a small town. Wifi is good. Breakfast spread wasn't a lot. Would return if they would just do something about the hotel.. especially with such a new hotel like Artic Light just... More

We ended up with a corner room here, and it was huge compared to other hotels in Europe! The bathroom was also very roomy. The staff were friendly, and the hotel was clean. The bed was comfortable, and the water pressure was good. The breakfast was ok. We would definitely stay here again!

The hotel could use some updates, but all the basics are there. Location in the middle of city is awesome. There were really few parking lots in front of hotel but plentyof room in garage. And a place to wash your car, which was a nice touch. The hotel gym was bit of an disappontment, but with all of the... More

My experience was exactly the same as many others written here. Location was key about my choice of lodging, besides Rovaniemi was pretty full during this peak season, there was no other choices. Airport Taxi arrives and departs from around the corner of the hotel, too convenient to even spend a bomb on taxi. Nili restaurant by the bus stop,... More

Hotel has excellent location in centre of Rovaniemi. Service and breakfast were good. Hotel was worn and it needs renovation. Room looked very old, and it was not so clean. Bed was ok and I slept well, this was quiet place to stay.

My husband and I stayed in Rovaniemi for 2 nights and this hotel was great. The room was comfortable, the location was excellent, and the complimentary breakfast buffet was delicious. We recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice, clean hotel that is walking distance to many restaurants and stores.
