Maravilloso - Wonderful

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 31, 2012

En español - Later on, in English

Viajé con mis amigos el 28 de enero de 2012, y estuvimos 2 noches. Buscábamos algo barato, pues somos estudiantes y no nos podemos permitir mucho dinero. Este establecimiento era lo más económico que encontramos en la ciudad para estas fechas, y nos esperábamos algo acorde a ello. Pero cual fue nuestra sorpresa al ver un lugar tan bonito.

Cierto es que se trata de una familia, que tiene una parcela con dos casas, alquilando una como B&B, por lo que hay sólo una habitación, que puede alojar a 4 personas con comodidad, y posiblemente a 5, pues vimos una cama plegable escondida.

Como buena casa finlandesa, cuenta con sauna. Queda a 2 metros de la puerta de entrada, por lo que si se desea "hacer la croqueta" en la nieve es posible. Tanto la sauna como el baño estaban muy limpios.

En la habitación hay televisión, una mini-cocina y una chimenea. La casera cobra 5€ por una enorme cesta de madera (Que por cierto, olía muy buen) lista para hacerla arder, suficiente para tener dos noches seguidas con una buena fogata. De todas formas, no es necesaria, ya que la casa cuenta con una sistema de calefacción muy efectivo.

Las camas son dos literas y una de matrimonio, yo probé la litera superior. Conociendo las camas de bastantes hoteles de Europa, estas eran muy cómodas. Para viajeros españoles: las almohadas finlandesas son más bien cojines grandes.

El establecimiento se encuentra a una distancia aceptable del centro de la ciudad, aunque en invierno, hay que recordar que está en Laponia, y hace frío. Encontrar las paradas de bus que llevan a Santa Claus Village, quizás la más llamativa atracción de la ciudad, es muy sencillo. Hay un centro comercial y varios museos en los alrededores.

Lo mejor de todo, llegamos por la mañana muy temprano. Allí estaba la casera esperándonos, que nos dio todo tipo de información sobre la ciudad y nos invitó a una taza de té o café, además de permitirnos dejar nuestros equipajes allí, cuando el check-in lo suele hacer a partir de las 14 horas.

Para un viaje de amigos está muy bien, para un viaje familiar, creo que está mejor; y para un viaje de pareja opino que es magnífico.

I traveled with my friends on January 28, 2012, and stayed two nights. We wanted something cheap, because we are students and we can not afford a lot of money. This establishment was the cheapest we found in the city for these dates, and we were expecting something according to its price compared with other Rovaniemi hotels. But what a surprise to see such a beautiful place.

It is true that this is a family that has a plot with two houses, renting one as B & B, so there is only one room that can hold up to 4 people comfortably, and possibly 5, as we saw a folding bed hidden.

As a good Finnish house, there is a sauna. It is just 6 feet from the front door, so if you want to roll in the snow it's possible. Both the sauna and bathroom were very clean.

In-room TV, a kitchenette and a fireplace. The landlady charges 5 € for a huge basket of wood (Which by the way, smelled quite good) ready to make it burn, enough to have two nights in a row with a good fire. Anyway, it is not necessary since the house has a very effective heating system.

The beds are two beds and a double, I tried the top bunk. Knowing enough beds in hotels in Europe, these were very comfortable.

The property is at an acceptable distance from the center of the city, although in winter, remember that it is in Lapland, and it will for sure be cold. Finding bus stops leading to Santa Claus Village, perhaps the most striking attraction of the city, is very simple. There is a mall and several nearby museums.

Best of all, we arrived very early in the morning. There was the landlady waiting for us, gave us all kinds of information about the city and invited us to a cup of tea or coffee, as well let us to leave our luggage there, when the check-in is usually done after 14 hours.

For a trip with friends is fine, for a family trip, I think it's better, and for a couple "romantic" trip I think it is great.
