Hotel with Arctic touch
Everything went smooth from the moment I checked in to the moment I left the hotel. I was given a magical room number 212. Spacious, modern and has this amazing arctic touch. The hotel is in the city center. Few steps to restaurants, shops and travel agencies. Nice breakfast and restaurant in general. Try to book a private jacuzzi for free. Highly recommended.

Very welcoming reception staff. Perfect location for access to Arctic safari excursions. Easy transport. Excellent breakfast and friendly, courteous staff across the board. Top-shelf accommodation. Also like d the Polar Bear photos in the shower, and the indigenous peoples photos in the room. Cool hotel.

The rooms are GREAT! It's very spacious and beautifully decorated. The hotel restaurant and bar are amazing! However, the best part was the service this hotel provides. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Would recommend staying here!

The hotel is fanastic and the best thing is all the employees that work there. The staff of the reception is very professional, polite and helpful always willing to help you. I want to congratulate Ana who was always behind our tours. The room is super spacious, comfortable and with many extras. Breakfast very good too and varied. Congratulations to all employees for the good work they do.

An Arctic Gem
What a wonderful Home, to call it Hotel would be too impersonal. Yes, it is hotel, with every nook & corner done up so beautifully that it is picture postcard perfect. Gracious staff, helpful all the way. The Arctic, oozes “Warmth” and embraces you totally !!! The location is perfect, edge of the City Center, restaurants next to hotel, opposite the hotel, quiet and discreet. Wonderful rooms / suites. Loved the old cage elevator, great ambience in the in-house dining, loved the breakfast spread, missed ketchup & mustard... though, I am sure it would have been there on request. You have to experience it to know, that you stayed at the “Best”.... , hospitality has to offer. I am no star struck traveller ..... I started my career in a leading hotel of the world many many moons ago , I know what is the best !

Ready for good wine?
We have been on the road for all most 3 weeks from the US. This is the best hotel we’ve stayed in. Extended our stay 2x! Friendly staff, clean rooms, amenities and a great bar and restaurant! Location is in the central part of town. You won’t go wrong with this choice!

A Rovaniemi Jewel
Artic Light is a quaint, modern hotel in the heart of Rovaniemi. Our itinerary called for us to stay only one night, but it was a most enjoyable one. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the food and drink service was excellent. We wished we could have stayed another night. Our next Finland trip will include a Lapland visit and a longer stay at the Arctic Light.

Hotel good/restaurant not so much
We stayed here the second night, after a night at Arctic Treehouse, and were much happier here. It was a little loud in comparison to the more remote previous night, but it was fun to be in a hotel with cool design, nice rooms, helpful staff on check in. The restaurant, however, was very disappointing. After 15 minutes of waiting for someone to come to us at our table at dinner time (early dinner actually--6:30 as we were headed out for a tour) we walked out and went up the street.

Santa's turf!
Well, if you cannot be in the Christmas mood here, then God help you! This is Santa's home, and it feels like it from the moment you step into this boutique hotel. What a treat. A sumptuous room, beautiful bathroom, very nice welcoming service, great breakfast! Just under 10 miles from the Arctic Circle, the hotel is unlike anything else you would see. Owners are Swedes who take a lot of pride in their property and it shows from the moment you step over the threshold. I was so taken by this hotel that I may consider going back to the area just to stay at this hotel again. I have a friend who moved there the week I went there for work, but if given the chance, when visiting, I would definitely make it so that I would spend at least one night in Rovaniemi at this hotel. A true delight! If you know someone who is into Christmas, you may be hard-pressed to find a "homier" place to stay. The direct neighborhood is nice, but nothing exceptional. But it could be that due to my late arrival, there was just no way to see much of the area. But that's just a good way to go back and revisit. Looks like a great place to see the Northern Lights. Overall, an outstanding stay at a great price! Definitely worth the trip!
