Who we are

Haawe is its owner’s, Feng Liu’s, dream come true. Feng Liu spent a lot of time in the Haawe building in the late 90s and early 2000s. His parents owned a restaurant that is still active in the building, and they bought the entire building later on.

As years passed, Feng Liu’s studies and work took him abroad, but Rovaniemi and a certain white façade always remained close to his heart. In 2017, it was finally time to make the dream come true and breathe new life into the building, one of the oldest in central Rovaniemi. Haawe welcomed its first guests in December 2018.

Yolanda Xu is responsible for the customer service at Haawe. You will meet her at the reception of the hotel.
