The personnel of the hotel was very friendly. Hotel is old and there's no air-conditioning, so it was a little bit too warm for sleeping. Breakfast was good and very well organized. The menu of the restaurant was not so excellent. Winelist was short and some wines were not available.

I don't often review hotels, but just wanted to note I had a very pleasant stay at the Scandic Ferrum with a large breakfast spread, extremely convenient to the town, and great views overlooking the iron mine and mountains. The room was perfect for us.

Ok hotel, service (breakfast, restaurant and check-in/check-out) was poor: we didn't receive any information concerning kids in the hotel. Rooms ok, great view from the sauna+gym in the top floor! Good location in the city centre.

One night stay on the way to Norway. Service left some to be desired from check-in to check-out. The room was average with all the necessities, it had a view to the mine which was kind of unconventional and positively interesting. The breakfast was crowded to say the least and the service staff seemed to be significantly under dimensioned, the... More

This Scandic got to the the best hotel in town. Great view from many of the rooms overlooking the mine. Great sauna on the top floor. We enjoyed the breakfast, which had a great selection to most peoples taste. Furthermore I do like Scandic Hotels approach to recycling.

We stayed here two nights and when we first arrived the room we were given had not been cleaned and it was at least around 9.30pm at night. The staff were very quick to give us a different room and a 50 kroner voucher for the bar. For the price we paid I would expect basic toiletries, of which there... More

First, I suggest that you ask for a room on the front of the hotel, where you have an interesting view over the mountains and the iron-ore mine. The hotel feels a little bit old. The beds are comfortable and the cleaning is acceptable. The buffet breakfast is very good The staff is very helpful and nice.

Old fashion hotel in Kiruna. Not much done since 70´s. Rooms pretty original, but what else expected if town will be moved away... due to mine. Restaurant surprised by local dish that was wonderful. Still - place for proper sleep if you travel in North Sweden.
