            Incredible location, incredible rooms and incredible service! We stayed for 3 nights before moving onto another igloo for a night and to be honest I wish we had stayed at the star artic for all 4 nights. The staff were incredibly helpful. The room was beautiful but unfortunately we did have a hiccup( an issue that could’ve happened at any hotel). The manager handled our complaint with such professionalism and provided generous compensation so much so that I highly recommend the star artic to anyone considering travelling to the area. Thank you to the staff at star artic and we can’t wait to visit again.

Not a prefect room for aurora. 3. No proper room for luggage storage. Basically you can just dump your luggages anywhere. 4. Messages sent and confirmed there is dinner served. Re-confirm around 3pm to reserve the table for dinner but receptionist said there is no necessary. Reach restaurant around 6pm, initially they said no dinner serve for the day, but fortunately one of the staff said they have only one dish leave for us, which is reindeer stew. But customer come in later have a fish dishes serve without booking in advance.

            Pros: location on top of hill away from the town making it easier to view the Aurora Borealis. Also very close to chairlift for easy access if skiing. Toboggan run literally next to the hotel. Clean spacious suite rooms Lovely view of Saariselka from the balcony of the Scenic Suite rooms and of the sky from the Aurora Cabin Some staff very helpful & accommodating with requests Buffet breakfast whilst not extensive was more than adequate and provides a good start to the day Cons Steep staircase in the Scenic suite rooms. Tiny bathroom in Aurora Cabin, poorly designed - toilet gets wet when having shower.

            Aurora cabin”

            Great stay with excellent service. Unlike most hotels which do not cater for kettle, this one does! The place will look nice in winter when snow covers the gravel/sandy ground. The room is beautiful especially for indoor photoshoot and location (Main lobby/outdoor/ Suite with view) provides you an awesome views of national park ahead and Saariselka town. Just a lack of privacy to forgo for the Aurora cabin. Be careful while driving on a foggy night.. the signs along the "road" to the hotel can be improved on...

            Beautiful hotel, slightly on the pricy end. Airport transfer by hotel costs a bomb for a relatively short rIde. The cabin was fantastic. Clean and cosy. Great room service. Great wifi. Breakfast is good, but the usual fare, nothing fancy. Great location for Aurora viewing. Came in Sept. Not quite skiing season. Plenty of wild berries just nearby and good trekking trails. The ski slope and lift is literally a minute’s walk, with a souvenir shop and a restaurant. Happy stayer. :)

            Glass roof is interesting but as other's have noted that privacy can be an issue. I expect other glass roof themed hotel to have similar issue. The bathroom maybe a tight fit for some. Had a great enjoyable stay.

            The worst experience ever”

            Awfully expensive, paying 6 star price but receiving 2 star service. We arrived at 12. According to agoda booking, we can check in at 3pm. However, they said the room is not yet cleaned becoz of lack staff, we waited for 2 hours until 5pm. Thus we are asking to have a late check out for 2 hours for compensation, and the reply is NO. NOT POSSIBLE. In the meantime waiting, we did not receive any complimentary drinks in such cold weather. we are told to leave our luggages in a corner where no one taking care of. no conceigre, So don't bring expensive ski clothes or equipment. And rooms temperature are awfully cold. it's 14 degree celsius for whole night in our first room. but 21 degree celsius for another room. in our first room. AC only 14 degree. WIFI not working. TV not working. Window is blocked with snow even the windows are self heated. plus u can see reflections on the windows. And the rooms are too close to each other. i can actually see what tv programme is playing next room.

            Located on top of the mountain which is very good view to spot the aurora in the igloo. But the hotel wasn’t ready and set as high price just not worth to stay for non of the facilities is working well. Inexperienced staff and was not able to fullfill even a 3 stars hotel service. WiFi is not functioning and the hot water generator running noice in the middle of the night can be heard clearly inside your igloo. Overall not value for money.

            選べるツアーが豊かで、北極十分楽しめます。 フィンランド料理はアジア人いあまり相性が良くないと思います。 ホテルは最高でした。

            事前に確認しましたがシーズンオフは近くのレストランもホテルのレストランもやっていなかったので、注意です(*_*)※ホテルから村まで徒歩だと30分かかり、食料がなかった時悲劇です。 しかしながら、景色も良くスタッフも親切でとても良かったです^ ^
