Great location! Not anything extravagant, but does the trick quite nicely. The staff is incomparable I will say; extremely friendly and very willing to help. Makes all the difference when you've been traveling all night!

It was OK. I had the "family room" which sleeps 4 in two twin beds and a bunk-bed. The room had a kitchenette with small refrigerator – which was very convenient. The Hotel is located very close to the ski slopes as well as to the town of Levi. The breakfast was adequate and the staff was helpful almost all the time. The one down side was the Spa's stipulation that men wear bathing trunks made out of "Speedo" material in the swimming pool areas – which did look very cool. I showed up with my Myrtle Beach swim trunks - which have a liner - and was told by the lifeguard (who was wearing a swimsuit very similar to mine) that I could not enter because my trunks had to be made of "Speedo" material. He did mention that I could rent appropriate trunks or buy one at the hotel store…but, not being an olympic swimmer, I thought it best to avoid that inappropriate Speedo look that we have all seen. So, I opted out and simply went skiing. Yeah…me in a Speedo…I don't think so. And renting a Speedo…yeah, again…I don't think so…that's just gross. I suppose I could have bought one - but spending a lot of cash to embarrass myself in a one-off swimming experience isn't going to happen. So, I headed to the slopes. So, if you do go to the pool/Spa, bring an appropriate suit or be prepared to buy one at Finnish prices!

The hotel is in a convenient location for the bus to Ivalo Airport (stops just outside). Also close to activity booking agencies such as Husky & co and Saariselka Booking and the supermarket. The rooms are spacious, clean and warm but dated. Breakfast is very good (waffles, cooked breakfast, cereals, yoghurts, different breads meat & cheese etc.).
We missed our connecting flight from Helsinki to Ivalo due to the plane from Manchester being late - the hotel were very accommodating and we checked in at about 2am! One thing I didn't realise is that you have to pay extra to use the swimming pool (€18!) so we didn't use it.
