Though I found the furnishings dated, I am happy that everything works fine. When I asked for directions, the counter staff are helpful and precise in their instructions. The breakfast spread is good, though different variety over the days will be better. Overall, I enjoyed my 3 nights stay over Christmas in Rantasipi Polar.

Enjoyed a week here over Christmas. The staff were absolutely lovely and very helpful. Breakfast and Dinner were buffet style and quite tasty. Christmas Eve was extra special with a lovely meal and visit from Santa. All it was missing was Christmas carols. Would definitely stay here again.

We never expect to get two family rooms that in downstair which have no lift but need to take luggage up and down via staircase. As it was winter and we have nearly twelve bg luggage for us. Try to ask for room swifting but fail, but the hotel staff is great of helping for luggage as no bell boy...

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...

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...

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...

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,...
