8/10 Very good

Good service but poor hardware.
The staff were friendly and the room was spacious. However there are a lot of rooms that are not accessible by lift, and very often tourists had to carry their luggage’s up and down the long staircases, which is very often not easy to do. So be careful when selecting this hotel - if you’re travelling with wheelchairs or heavy luggages, maybe another hotel would be better. If not, Scandic Polar is perfect.

Lapland stay
I did not stay at the scandic polar as it was closed. I stay at the scandic pohanjovi instead. This was a more picturesque . Location perfect with busses stopping outside. Also on new yeats eve , i did not have to go outside . This is a four star hotel. It has a pool and sauna. I did not use either mainly because of covid and i was outside most of tbe time.

Nice service but the hotel is worn down
Friendly service and a bowl of candy with a hand written/drawn card in the room as a welcome gift made up for otherwise worn down and outdated hotel.
