This hotel is pleasant enough but the bedrooms are small. The bar closes and one is virtually locked out of the hotel and confined to ones room. The staff are friendly enough and the food is acceptable. There is one major drawback if you do not have a car because it is quite a walk from the bus stop and... More

Went here for a meal only, as part of an après-ski tour group, and found the elk, mash and root vegetables (with pancakes and cloudberries to follow) excellent. Learned with some dismay that we might have secured our place in history as probably the last UK tour group to visit, as the place is rumoured to be closing soon. Didn't... More

We stayed here for a week in over New year in 2014/15. We had arranged a week of activities with Top Safaris (which owns the hotel). The package was seamlessly organised with the hotel, so that meals were at times around the activities, and the staff always knew what time our next activity was. We had all meals paid for... More

We stayed 1 week in the Laanihovi hotel near saariselkä, and we had a wonderfull time there spending our winter holiday. The hotel has everything what we needed, clean and spacious rooms, but not very luxurious. If that is what you are looking for, Laanihovi is not the right place for you. But we needed a comfortabel bed, a healthy... More

we got to Laanihovi by mistake, butoverall it was a nice experience. The hotel is located at 3.8km from Saariselka and that is a minus. The taxi fare to downtown is 15-20 EUR, depending on the hour. The rooms are OK, quit spacious and comfortable. The biggest plus is the personnel: very friendly, helpful and always ready for a joke... More

We stayed in this place for 2 nights in December and genuinely wish we had stayed for longer. First of all, Lapland is amazing beyond words and I think Christmas time was the best time to visit. Not only was it winter so good time for the northern lights, it was also so incredibly beautiful with 360 degrees of knee... More

A cozy hotel, although this is an old hotel, furnitures inside rooms are tidy, looks new and clean. If you love ski, this is the right hotel, as ski track is just behind the hotel. Staffs are extremely helpful, especially we need to catch the airport bus in very early morning, but dont know why the bus did not show... More

Great place to stay. Staff were really helpful, friendly and relaxed. We arranged all of our trips through the hotel/Top Safari and were really looked after. It is about a 30 minute walk to the town, which was great to get your blood pumping. The only disappointing side was some of their items were over priced - a small 40g... More

Although we did not stay in the hotel itself, when staying in the nearby Panimo log cabins (Saariselka) we went to the restaurant attached to the hotel. It was the most delicious meal I've had in a long time! Elk steaks, creamy mash, seasonal Finnish vegetables and a delicious jus. Reasonably priced bar too, with a toasty open fire :)
