Hotel Rantasipi Pohjanhovi
Lonely Planet review
Right by the river, this is the historic hotel of Rovaniemi, dating to before the war, though much had to be rebuilt after it. There are two grades of room (as well as lovely suites); the standards are gradually being renovated but have plenty of space and colour, though they can be a little stuffy. The superior rooms, which don’t cost too much more, are classier, with dark floorboards, Lapp shaman motifs and flatscreen TV. Summer prices represent real value. The restaurant has live music on Friday and Saturday of the Finnish golden-oldie type: a good chance to see the local dance scene in action.
