The hotel is very centrally located, it's in the heart of town, and the view is great... walking distance from a lot of shops and restaurants which is good when the temperatures are in the range of -20 to -30. The flip side is there is only one restaurant in the hotel, which opens after 6pm and is closed on... More

Positives -warm rooms -great breakfast Negatives -understaffed -misleading website pictures -impersonal -dirty public spaces We booked the Scandic Ferrum for our Christmas adventure in Lapland, tempted by website pictures of wintery log fires, steaming saunas, a relaxation and reading room with reindeer skins next to a roaring fire, and the prospect of sipping a hot 'glogg' next to a cosy...

Visited Kiruna for work recently and stayed at the Scandic Ferrum. During check in I asked for a room with a mountain view, which I got right away when asking the friendly guy at front desk. Did only spend 24 hours in Kiruna, but Scandic Ferrum seems to be situated quite good in a small ’downtown area’ where there were... More

Breakfast is excellent! I was disappointed that when I pointed out that the drain in the shower was blocked to such an extent that if the shower was on for 1-2 min the entire bathroom floor was flooded! Making having decent shower inmpossible. That it wasn't fixed the following day. This is not a budget hotel and I expect that... More

Always ask for a room with a view towards the mountains (fjällen) because thats amazing and compared to the other nonview its just not comparable. The renovation of the lobby is a big plus and you shouldn't expect too much of the rooms. Breakfast is more than average. enjoy!

As one of the rising building in the middle of this quite and small place in the northern Sweden, this hotel is probably the best place to stay if you want to witness the glimmering sunset inside your room. It has an amazing view around, you could see almost everything from 8th floor. The food was good and the service... More

Very functional hotel. Rooms are pretty spartan and basic the restaurant has a buffet or a la carte. Breakfast is a good buffet. Staff very helpful and friendly. The renovated sauna is very nice with a great view. Location is extremely central.

"Historic" Ferrum it,s on it,s way. Smart lobby and restaurant design. Still some things to improve, bed linen, quilt and pillows still low class. Big plus for activity black board. Very warm rooms facing the LKAB mine. Properly only a problem a few weeks a year. Thank you for free WI FI and friendly reception.

First: the front desk staff was great and effective. The room was a bit dusty and it was a very hot day so it got hot because there is no air conditioning. Nice view to mine. The restaurant were I had dinner was nor good. But the breakfast was ok.
