There's a bar on the ground floor. I was surprised that the staffs behind the bar counter are the receptionists of the hotel. Well... I guess looking at how small the population of Kiruna was, I shouldn't have had a high expectation on who's gonna serve me what. When I got to the room though, it was such a lovely... More

I would recommend it for an overnight stay, as it is central and warm, and the food in the bar is very good. However, if you like the personal touch, this doesn't really tick that box. There did not appear to be any managers present,, and the youngish staff are polite but distant, with a couple of amiable exceptions. My... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a family room. The room was basic, but well maintained and with a good size and the bathroom was spacy and modern. Breakfast (buffet) was served in the pub, which was different from the usual hotel breakfast, but we really liked the atmosphere and it was great with small kids. The location is... More

Booked this "Hotel" in the US. Arrived and couldn´t find reception; went up and down the stairs without success. Finally, went into the bar where the server checked me in. Check out was listed as 12 noon however they deactivated my key at 0930 and the bar was closed by 11. So, in a frigid arctic snowstorm, I have no... More

Staying 3 nights here. Spacious room for Europe standard. Closed to town center which made everything very easy access. The only downside is the breakfast which lacks variety. Overall, still the best place to stay when you are in Kiruna.

Stayed here for two nights at the start and end of a week long dog sledding trip. It is a very comfortable hotel with good facilities, room was basic but very nice and clean, good bathroom facilities and great shower. The bar has a great selection of beers, both local and foreign and they serve really good local food. The... More

At first sight with the reception being the pub and the ground being shops it can be little off putting, but rooms are a reasonable size, fairly modern and clean. It's not a cheap hotel and cost more than the usual hotels in the Elite chain, but perhaps it's because it so far north. There is no hot food with... More

The hotel is located close to the city center of Kiruna, just some minutes walk from the bus station (where the shuttle buses from the new train station as well as the buses for the ICEHOTEL arrive and depart). Partly, this hotel is integrated into a shopping passage, i.e., the entrance to the rooms on the first floor as well... More

We've had two nice nights in this Hotel. Our second room had a view over the Main Street and a bath. The rooms were nice and clean. A good tv which worked with our own USB hard-disk so we could watch a movie. The breakfast was also nice. We also had some check in troubles around New Years and with... More

When we arrived on January, 1st at 2pm the reception was not open, so approximately 10 people were waiting outside the door that somebody let us in. I did not care that the reception was at the bar. The rooms were a bit small, but nice and clean. WLAN was good. Breakfast was good as well.
