    - The swimming pool is outdated and the water smells a bit weird. Surely a lovely place when it was new. - Not worth the price we got one room for

    - cosy environment. - good parking lot - good food

    log cabins are comfortable and ideal for a couple. small but clean and functional bathroom and shower. kitchen not great to cook, as the oven is small. but still enough to make simple things. and there're a few restaurants close by. great to have a fireplace in the room. and sauna works ok too. nice location, close to main attractions.

    Good location in Akaslompolo, just 30 mins to Yllas ski park on driving. The cabin is warm and cozy, with a sauna room and plenty of eletric appliancesoms. Variety of choice for buffet breakfast.

    Our bathroom flooded with sewage twice. It was gross. They said it was due to frozen pipes and that it can happen. They said they could have moved our rooms but we didn’t bother as it was only a 3 night stay.

    The breakfast buffet was fabulous. The log cabin was warm and had a nice working fireplace. Everything was easy from the hotel to do activities. Loved Akaslompolo and can’t wait to come back.

    It was a walk to the reception and a phone to ask questions rather then having to walk there every time, but really not a big issue. This hotel isn't uber modern, but still lovely, the main hotel eating area is a little rustic, but cosy.

    Apartment was really clean and great facilitates for the cold weather, warm cosy apartment and really kind staff. Breakfast was good but busy with tui and inghams guests, but good selection and times.

    The hotel would benefit from renovation. The room was somewhat worn out, although everything was quite ok. Also the other facilities would need a face lift.

    Perfect location next to the national park, which has excellent possibilities for e.g. hiking, mountain biking and skiing. Friendly staff. Very good breakfast.

    The hotel is a bit too pricey, considering that it needs a renovation. Rooms are kept clean but they remind of 1970s decoration.

    Breakfast was very good, many choices, and this hotel near to all services, ski rental, bus to the Yllässlopes frequently and the foodshop also very near. Next to crosscountryskiing. Sauna and pool added extra value for the stay.

    The cabins are a little dated and not very soundproofed - also there are a coupe of street lamps left on outside which can make the inside of the cabin quite light during the night - nothing serious though.

    This is the third time we have stayed here and it really suits us. The cabins are in a wooded area yet only 10mins walk to the village and bars and restaurants. The reception staff are all extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble - we will be back!

    Not enough pillows but reception did sort that out for us. Also we thought there wasn`t enough storage for six people but we were only there a few days so didn`t cause a problem. Gift shop a bit sparse.

    The staff was very friendly, food excellent in the bar, breakfast was brilliant if you couldn`t find something you liked well you must be very fussy. Surroundings so pretty, we had an apartment which was brilliant having children in our group.

    The ONLY complaint I have is why does the balcony door have a lock of the type that is is VERY easy to lock yourself out on the balcony - in sub zero temperatures this could be very dangerous!!! Please look at changing all of your balcony door locks so it is NOT possible to lock yourself out . Many thanks,

    Spacious comfy room with its own sauna - 4 of us shared the room - great price - good value - great location - walking distance to shops and restaurants. As we had an early start for airport you arranged packed breakfasts for us - very good. Will stay again hopefully.
