Ivalo Stay
Hotel is located well. Minni bus from Ivalo airport drops u off at the hotel for 10€ a person. It is next to the lake. Has views of the lake from the back of the Restaurant. Breakfast was good, has options. Room was a little small but sufficient for 2 people. There is no Lift / Elevators, so one has to carry their luggage by stairs.We saw some norther lights around midnight. The hotel also helps arrange for Day/Evening tours. Over all a good experience. Would be happy to stay over another time, specially for Lake views and Northern lights.

Good short, cheap stay
I stayed here for a night as I was arriving late and didn’t want to pay for an extra night at the igloo hotel when I wouldn’t get to experience it. The hotels in a good location but it’s very basic with few amenities. Good for a short, cheap stay

Great hotel but weird housekeeping
We had the room with balcony facing the frozen lake and private sauna. It was simply fascinating. The people at the reception were friendly and helpful. However, i find their housekeeping is weird. On one day, we came back to our hotel room and found one of our bed was made and the other not. Not sure why. Kindly refer attached photo. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at hotel Kultahippu. Highly recommended.

Good stay
Stayed at hotel kultahippu for 4 nights this christmas, the location of the hotel was convenient (walking distance to some cafes/bistro/restaurants, and across from a supermarket). Breakfast was just what you needed to start your day. Room was decent.

Very good location - right on river with a grocery and wine/liquor store across the street. Had breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurant and all were good.

Your typical Scandinavian Hotel
In one of the best areas to stay in Ivalo, since you have the market and liquor store right across the street. A short walk to a few restaurants. It is a typical Scandinavian hotel, nothing fancy, twin beds, and a shower that is not what we are used to in the US, but can't forget you are in Finland. Compared to hotels in the country is good. Breakfast was nicer than expected. The street/market/parking lights can be bothersome. Not a lot to choose from in this town. If I return to Ivalo, I'll definitely stay at this hotel again. The hotel was sparking clean.

Just ok, food was great but room not so much
We didn’t realize there’s no fridge in the room but that was on us not checking. Our room was facing the gas station and supermarket so it was pretty bright until after the supermarket closes. We spotted a few flees near the bed so that gave us a bad impression. But the breakfast was quite good.

Our stay here ended up being a lot of fun, especially when we weren’t expecting much. Almost everyone in the town was there on Saturday night for karaoke and it was funny seeing a place as isolated as this be so busy! The rooms are very basic but we couldn’t have expected more from this kind of location. With a wide lakefront on one side of the property and a supermarket on the other, this is a pretty solid choice. Also the Wild Spirit Park is a short car ride away and this is a must if you pass through Ivalo.
