Cheap not so cheerful!
Well it's cheap for area. Check in is in different locations quite a walk. No too bad if like me u find hotel (Rudolf) first & park your car leaving baggage in it but still quite a walk in winter in snow/ice. (Parking near hotel Santa Claus where u check in is limited). Hotel Rudolf is total unmanned. Wifi would not work on first evering so went to use phone in corridor to contact staff (@ check in hotel via internal call) this didn't work either. So as I was going into town where hotel Santa Claus is I popped in, got impression they couldn't care less despite fake smile by front desk staff. This was not fixed till morning of me leaving after 2 nights. Room is cold as windows have constant draft curtains don't fit & heating poor only usable because of standalone electric heater &me moving beds out from window, bathroom/ shower very poor and old desperately need refurbish(rooms had been to some extent refurbished. The whole town is very touristy and set up to rip you off although McDonalds short walk away is good. In essence if you staying in summer or looking for a Hostel style room albeit private bathroom etc then this may suit you: if not then only reason to use is because it's cheap for area but does not justify its cost so if possible I recommend staying in a better maybe more expensive hotel. it was also noisy being no staff to keep check on people oh and lots of threats of charges if u forget your room or front door keys (2 keys) never found a hotel like this before!

Had to travel/walk to Santa Claus Hotel just to check in. NOT CONVENIENT. I recommend forgetting about this hotel & pay the EXTRA money for Santa Claus Hotel. No One at Rudulf Hotel. What's the Police t of even staying there. Stay somewhere else. Not convenient!
