The range of options at the Äkäshotelli is the main draw. There are conventional hotel rooms and then larger Kanerva superior rooms, with sleeping alcove with twin beds in an alcove and a double sofa bed. Then there are the apartments; with kitchens, living rooms and private sauna, along with bedrooms, alcoves and some with extra beds in the loft space (max eight persons). Finally there are the self-contained log cabins with two beds, with fireplaces and cosy surroundings. The hotel rooms are in the main building, whilst the apartments, log cabins (semi-detached) and Kanerva rooms are dotted around the expansive grounds.

The property in its entirety creates a village atmosphere, with the shared Pirtukirkko restaurant at the centrepoint, along with Pirtun Kellari - the "best nightclub in Ylläs." [sic]. The mini spa offers relaxing treatments for those intent on relaxing. There is also a gym and small swimming pool.
