Hi Arctus, Thank you for taking the time to review us! I'm glad you enjoyed the view, I must agree that it's spectacular with the sight of Lumberjack's Candle Bridge and the Ounasvaara hill! It's also unfortunately true that we don't have the newest rooms,...More

Location of this hotel is pretty nice along the Kemijoki-river. That’s where the fun basically stops. The staff is nice, it is not their fault that heavy renovation is needed. Rooms are pretty okeish for one night stop.

My first impression was of a hotel far past its prime and a bit worse for the wear of years. After staying two nights my appreciation for the hotel’s history won me over and I found charm in the blemishes and dated décor. I had...More
