1N in Santa Tunturi
We stayed at AHMA, the premise for standard rooms. It was old and tired looking. The room was small, but comfortable. And there is a common electric sauna for hotel guests with segregated timings for males and females. Breakfast was average - the usual spread you get in most lodgings in Lapland

Weeks stay aurora hunting
Spent a week at the hotel hoping to see some aurora, bit of low level activity but lots more low cloud (sees to be a common issue). Nice room and comfortable bed (2 singles), TV which had BBC News 24 on Ch 9, kettle and a good supply of tea, coffee and chocolate. Good WiFi in the room. Great shower and I do like a good shower :-) Despite the fact that it was -25c and colder during my stay the room was always comfortable. Don't make the same mistake as me I carted all my baggage into reception, checked in and then had to cart it all back out as I was staying in a separate building 150M away :-) The breakfast restaurant area is large with good breakfast and is in the same building as reception. The surrounding area has plenty of good walks through the forests and cross country loops

Excellent customer service and great stay
Excellent customer service from Niina who helped my mum get her hat back after she left it on the coach. Hotel is conveniently located in Saariselkä with buses from Kakslauttanen stopping directly outside the hotel. Rooms were clean and ours had the in-room sauna which was easy to use and just wonderful. Room also had in room clothes drier. Breakfast had a good spread and very polite. Would recommend and would stay again.
