great experience
My stay at Star Arctic Hotel was one of the best experiences I had. I stayed the glass ceiling cabin which was very cozy and very clean. The staff was very hospitable and attending, they go above and beyond to help you especially Hanna. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my family and friends.

8/10 Very good

Really positive stay and we loved the room except for a few negatives: Tv is positioned way too high up to the ceiling. We could hear the neighbors in our room in the morning. Stairs up to the bed kind of almost damgerous Lobby is disappointing, only one couch to sit by the fire

Fantastic sauna rooms
We had a great time at this hotel. Our room had a private sauna, which we used several times and really enjoyed. The room was large and comfortable. The hotel itself is located outside of town and a little confusing to get to the first time (especially as it gets dark very early). It's also a higher elevation than the area around it to try and increase Northern Lights viewing. We actually found that did not help us see the Lights, as there was often a lot of fog which blocked the lights. But it wasn't hard for us a drive a short distance for better viewing. The staff was varied. Several went out of their way to be helpful and give advice/suggestions. One or two seemed like we were bothering them when asking questions. Breakfast had a lot of options, but we found the food bland. All in all, we really enjoyed this hotel and would stay here again.

Excellent hotel overall. We had the Aurora Cabin. Rooms are extremely comfortable and well thought out. Heated floors, comfortable bed, heated windows for the night sky view. Bathroom well designed. Breakfast is included and there’s plenty to choose from : the usual toast and spreads, cereal, hot food (eggs/bacon/sausages etc), yogurt with plenty of toppings, cheeses and cold cuts, fruit and desserts. Plenty of hot drinks on the machine to choose from and the hot choc was great! Dinner at Kaunis was excellent and well worth trying. Staff extremely polite and friendly. 30 min walk to Saariselka town in the snow. I suggest renting a car. No complaints here and we are already planning our next trip.
